Revlon ColorStay Lip Butters: The Rundown

As a woman, lip balms are my friend.  As a woman of color, lip balms are my BFF.  But lip balms plus color?  W00t!!!

Thanks to  a tip-off by The Muse, I dropped into my local Target like a Navy Seal to find these beauties.  Check out the color lineup!

The Display at Target beckons me to come closer...

These butters are so smooth, so moisturizing and range from a hint of color you have to build up (like Gumdrop) to full on in your face almost-lipstick color (Lollipop). At around $6.45 at Target and $7.50 at Ulta and Drugstore.com, is it easy to collect quite a few at a frugal price point. I’ve had no performance issues with these and only Gumdrop (a pastel lilac) was a little faint and almost gave me Tyrone Biggums lips but by using just a little or layering it over a darker lip pencil made it work fine.

I grabbed the most vibrant shades that appealed to me.

I believe there are at least ten (10) shades available and probably as many as fifteen (15) by now. I have seen a few new shades creeping into displays at Target and Ulta for Spring 2012 so be aware stock at one store may not be the same at another.  Ulta is running a sale this week [1/9/12] where if you buy one Revlon product you can get a second for 50% off. Print out the $3.50 off $10 coupon from their site to rack up the savings.

They look delicious, don't they?
