Revlon ColorBurst 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 I grabbed!


Revlon Lip Butter goodness awaits in the Beauty section at Target!

In December during one of my Target runs I made the wonderful discovery of Revlon’s Color Stay Lip Butters and my life hasn‘t been the same since.  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, 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.  The lighter colors still contain pigment that is translucent enough to give you a nice shine to your lips.
