My take on the Product
Revlon Colorburst lip butters come in a colorful packaging with a silver tube and a colored plastic cap which has the same pattern as the Colorburst lipsticks. I like the fact that caps are colored, it makes it very easy to identify and locate shades if you own more than one. But the one thing that I absolutely hate about this packaging is that the cap is too long and the black base which you hold to open the product hardly has any room for hold. This makes it a little difficult to open which can be very annoying.
The product itself is buttery soft and glides like butter on the lips. The texture is absolutely delightful to use! The shade Raspberry Pie is perhaps the most pigmented shade of the range, with lipstick-like pigmentation and a lovely glossy finish. I love the juicy finish of this product, it gives that luscious, healthy look to the lips that I always crave for in my lip products. It is very hydrating, I could feel that on the lips right from the first application. When the color wore off, my lips felt plumped and healthy. The unexfoliated dry bits on the lips had softened and came off easily giving absolutely smooth and hydrated lips. I absolutely love the cushion-y gel like feel of the formula – its feels so comfortable and luxurious on the lips.
Raspberry Pie is fuchsia-berry shade, similar to a few lipsticks I own and looks just stunning on the lips! I love berry pinks, brighter the better and with its glistening finish and moisturization, it beats all the similar lipsticks I have. The shade reminds me of Maybelline Colorsensational Jewels Berry Brilliant and Fuchsia Crystal – its like a cross between the two. But the Colorburst formula is way better! The color is staining and hence stays for a good 5 hours at least though the glossiness fades after 2 hours or with meals. I’d definitely recommend this shade for dusky/tanned skin!
It has a very faint vanilla fragrance which is only detectable when you sniff the tube directly. I don’t detect any scent when I actually apply it on my lips.
Is it worth Rs 600 ?
If I had not known the price it retailed for abroad, I would have said Hell Yes! But knowing the fact that these sell for $7-$8 in the US, I still think these are really good. I don’t think these can be compared to tinted lip balms. The tint, hydration and staying power offered by these lip butters is much superior to say what you would get from Nivea fruity shine lip balm. These actually remind me of high end sheer lipsticks like Clarins Joli Rouge andShiseido Perfect Rouge Tender Sheer lipsticks.
Having said that, I still feel they are expensive because you get only 2.55 g of product which would get used up very quickly considering these are sheer+buttery and would need reapplication.
