Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter Review: 'Sweet Tart'

Saturday, 28 July 2012 13:47

As I mentioned earlier on this week, I recently got my hands on 4 different shades on the infamous Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters. I entered a competition draw on the Revlon UK Facebook page a few weeks ago and I received an email this week telling me that I had won one of the lip butters! The shade I won was 'Sweet Tart', which I was so happy about as I didn't already own this and I wanted to try one of the brighter pink shades. Originally I was told I had won 'Lollipop', but this was a mistake- but I would have loved to get that one too but I think 'Sweet Tart' is much more me.


Revlon sent the lip butter in a cute little pink and white striped sweet bag, which I thought was such a lovely idea. It also came with some pink sweets and a little note, which was so exciting!

I am not going to go into the formula/lip butters as a whole as I did a pretty detailed review in my 'Peach Parfait' post here. 'Sweet Tart' is quite different in texture to 'Peach Parfait' however, as I find it glides on so much smoother and doesn't contain any glitter or shimmer at all. When applied, the finish is quite glossy- glossier than an ordinary lipstick but not too glossy.

I wore this all day yesterday and the staying power is fantastic. I ate an ice cream at one point and the colour rubbed off a little on the inside of my lips, but overall it hardly rubbed off at all! I was so impressed. If I hadn't have eaten something, I am confident it would have stayed flawlessly on my lips for the whole day.

Below is what the shade looks like on my lips. I have to say that this is my favourite of the 4 shades I have by a long way! The colour is perfect for my skin tone but I feel it could suit anybody. It is a really wearable pink that I think would be good to wear everyday (as I do!) or even for the evening.

To finish, I salute Revlon again! I am completely in love with the lip butters that I do own and 'Sweet Tart' is my favourite shade. I already own 4 and already know I would love to try more shades. I have already reviewed 'Peach Parfait' here but will be reviewing my other 2 shades: 'Candy Apple' and 'Tutti Frutti' very soon. The Lip Butters are available at Boots and Superdrug for £7.99, though they are often on offer so keep an eye out!

Have you tried this 'Sweet Tart'? What are your favourite lip butter shades?
