Sneak Peek: Revlon ColourBurst Lip Butters!!!

You've read all the blog posts.
The rumours are true.
The launch date is inching closer.
It can only mean one thing... *cue dramatic music* ...


Okay so that was a bit over the top but I don't care.

Like most of you beauty lovers out there, I have been so antsy about getting my hands on these Revlon Lip Butters that I even considered buying them off eBay becasue I couldn't wait any longer. It seems like we've been waiting an age and a half for the lip butters to wash up on our shores and for a while, we weren't even sure if were going to get them or not. I guess Revlon heard our cries and decided that we deserved the buttery goodness too because the Revlon ColourBurst Lip Butters are going on pre-sale on on Friday 9th March *insert happy dance here*

Lookie lookie what I have.....

These badboys crash landed on my desk today while I was at work so I thought I'd give you all a quick peek at the new Revlon ColourBurst Lip Butters and also so you can see what they swatch like. Let me say now that there are no lip swatches in the post because my camera battery died on me but I managed to get the obligatory back-of-the-hand swatch to give you an idea.

The yummy product names:
I was kindly sent 5 of the new lip butters to get up on here before the pre-sale launch tomorrow but remember that there are FOURTEEN shades in total so if none of these colours grab your attention then I'm sure one of the others will. 

 The pretty...
Shaped like a lipstick. Housed in the packaging of a lipstick. Looks like a lipstick. Acts like a balm?! 

A closer look...
 Before I even swatched any of these I knew that Sweet Tart was going to be my favourite - I'm a sucker for a gorgeous pink number!

Each of the lip butters were swiped just once on the back of my hand which is pretty impressive considering most lip balms/butters need a lot of building up before you get a hint of colour.

I am impressed with these badboys because not only do they look good but they feel super moisturising on the lips and the colour payoff is amazing. When I applied these on my lips there was no sticky feeling, not even after 2 hours, and my lips didn't once feel like they were drying out or anything. The colours are extremely buildable so if you feel for a stronger red lip then just add another layer or two, it is entirely up to you on how you wear it. Personally, I never have the patience or time to faff about with a lipstick and lip liner in the morning because I'm usually running late but with these ColourBurst Lip Butters I know that I won't have to worry too much because they're just like a lip balm, but with better packaging. I definitely recommend picking up some of these gorgeous products because they will come in handy and will probably last you a while. Out of the five shades I have, I recommend Candy Apple, Sweet Tart and Cotton Candy but don't let me stop you from picking up all fourteen shades... Something tells me that I'll be picking them up too!

Revlon ColourBurst Lip Butters are going on pre-sale on tomorrow (Friday 9th March) and if you've signed up to the waiting list then you'll receive an email when they do. They will also be available at Boots and Superdrug stores nationwide from Monday 19th March 2012, priced at £7.99 each.

So girls... What do you think?!

Until next time...
Keep swivelling those hips in your

  4. I love these! These were basically my first drugstore lipstick purchase. Although I told myself I was going to get ONE, I ended up running back and getting another 4!! :D

  5. These do look lovely - I just can't believe there's a waiting list for a Revlon lipbalm!

  6. oh goddd this is adding to my's gonna be naked palette all over again but we've read that much who cares!? excited! wish something like this would land on my desk :D


  7. I need these in my life! Which is your favorite?

  8. OMG I am so Jealous, I actually like all of the colours - what do I do?? lol

  9. i have it in peach parfait, like it but feels it's too much for daily use because of the shimmer.

    the other bad things about it is only the small amount of product, they're not filling all the tube, just about 1 inch inside. But if you want to finish it fast, it's a good choice :D

  10. I can't wait to get my hands on these! I love the look of Sweet Tart x

  11. I have Peach Parfait, Sweet Tart, Candy Apple, Berry Smoothie, Strawberry Shortcake, Pink Truffle and Red Velvet.

    Sweet Tart is my favourite! It is just beautiful!

  12. I love the look of each of these colours - can't pick a fav! I'm still patiently waiting for these to be released where I live, hopefully we'll get all of these shades and more.

  13. Oh I really really want to try these!! xx

  14. I thought I would blog stalk you whilst I chat to you on twitter ;)

    Love these. I am enjoying wearing mine but I had to throw tutti frutti away because everytime I wore it (claiming that orange was 'in') everyone was like 'talita NO!!' I wish they would come up with some warmer light pinks. Something warmer than cupcake and strawberry shortcake but equally as pastel!


Thanks for commenting! Keep 'em coming :)
