Revlon Lip Butter Swatches

Hello there!

I'm sure everyone and their mother (and their grandma) have heard all of the hype surrounding the Revlon Lip Butters. In case you haven't, Revlon put out a new product that is the perfect middle between being a lip balm and a lipstick. Some lighter shades aren't that pigmented, while others really pack a punch of color. I have only picked up 3 of the many shades. I own Strawberry Shortcake, Sweet Tart, and Berry Smoothie. The next one I plan to purchase is Candy Apple. I'm not really much of a lip color person, but I think it would be nice to have a redder shade for special occasions.

Let's see what these things look like, shall we? I apologize for the quality of these images. I was working with the lighting inside a dorm room and sunlight coming from my window!

Strawberry Shortcake: A light, cool pink. Not very pigmented, but pretty for everyday wear.

Sweet Tart: A fuchsia, warm pink. This is so much brighter in person. A bit bold for everyday wear, but definitely pretty and nice for occasions.

Berry Smoothie: A warm berry pink. Nice color to wear anytime. Might be a bit dark for lighter complexions.

Overall Feelings: I really do like these lip butters! They are incredibly smooth and moisturizing. Plus, they give a nice pop of color and brighten up any makeup look I do. The color range in this line is great, and I can't wait to try more!!! I love that I can just apply these super fast before class or after eating. 

Issues: There are 2 problems you might encounter with these. 1.) They "squish"....when you twist the product up and down, the product rubs off on the sides of the tube and gets messy. 2.) They don't last long on the lips, but I wasn't expecting too much wear time. I usually reapply after 30 minutes-1 hour. But I'm okay with that, because I really am not big on wearing lipsticks or gloss.

Hope you enjoyed this post, and give these babies a try! They are really nice for on the go, and there are lots of pretty shades to choose from!



  1. I grabbed Cupcake on sale for $4 this weekend but I'm really temppted by Strawberry Shortcake as well!

    1. I think you'll enjoy it! It is warmer than Cupcake I believe, from swatches I've seen. It makes my makeup look a bit brighter! =)

  2. The shades look great. I got 4 recently from CVS as they were on sale. But haven't got to try them yet.
