Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters Swatches

After a few unsuccessful drugstore trips searching for these recently released Revlon Colorburst Lip butters, I finally found these babies this week! These colorfully packaged lip butters instantly became my new favorites. They have a great formula that provides both moisture and a healthy shine to the lips. You can find Revlon Colorburst Lip stick with these coupon codes for Buy.com.

 050 Berry Smoothie
  
035 Candy Apple

 055 Cupcake
  
030 Fig Jam

 060 Gumdrop

 075 Lollipop

 025 Peach Parfait

 040 Red Velvet
  
005 Sugar Frosting
  
090 Sweet Tart

Since there are 20 shades in total in this line, and if you are like me who is indecisive when it comes to choosing, here are a few tips:

1) Don't be scared of the dark chocolaty shades (I always skip this shade range when I chose lipsticks in the past) -- they actually came out like MLBB for these lip butters because of the sheer formulation.

2) The reds are all very nicely pigmented, if you are a newbie to red lipsticks, these lip butters are a great place to start, because they are easier to apply (no lip brush/liner/all that fuss involved), and they are not as intense and scary as some of the classic red lipsticks.

3) Some formula have fine shimmers and some don't, but even the ones with shimmers are very hardly noticeable because the shimmers are so fine.
