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 soft in texture and glides like butter on the lips. The texture is absolutely delightful to use! The pigmentation is somewhere between a tinted lip balm and a lipstick, making it wearable for almost any occasion/time of the day. The color is just right to not look as bright as a lipstick but gives enough coverage to even out pigmentation. Single swipe gives sheer color and 2 swipes gives more intense color and a lovely glossy finish. I love the juicy finish of this product, it gives such 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.
It has a very faint vanilla scent which is only detectable when you sniff the tube directly. I don’t detect any scent when I actually apply it on my lips.
Sorbet is a medium bright pink color with cool undertones. Its not quite purplish but its not very warm either. I think its got the right balance to not look too cool for the warm Indian complexion. Built up to its full intensity in 2-3 swipes, it covers up pigmented lips quite well. If you’re looking for a flattering bright pink lip color, this is a great option! Being fairly pigmented, it stays a decent 4 hours on my lip with very mild staining.
The GOOD about Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter Sorbet :
- Colored packaging – makes shades easy to locate
- Soft buttery texture
- Good pigmentation
- Luxurious, hydrating feel
- Makes lips soft and smooth
- Decent staying power
- Diminishes fine lines of the lips
- Gives a plumped up, juicy look
- Very faint scent, taste-free
The NOT-SO-GOOD about Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter Sorbet :
- Packaging can be difficult to open ; may loosen up over time
- Overpriced in India compared to prices elsewhere
Sorbet is a beautiful medium-bright cool pink color that gives a pretty juicy pink color to the lips. It stays on fairly well for a butter and makes a very flattering pink for Indian skin. Superb hydration, lovely buttery texture and the just the right amount of color and shine makes this extremely wearable and a delight to use! Even though these are priced much higher in India compared to other countries, I still think these are worth a try!
Rating : 4.5/5 (-0.25 for the high price tag, -0.25 for the packaging)
