Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter Review: 'Candy Apple'

Monday, 6 August 2012 17:34

This is my last review in my Lip Butter series for the moment, as it is the last of the 4 shades I own. I am not going to talk about the formula/wear or anything like that as I can tell you I found it exactly the same as 'Sweet Tart' in this respect, which I reviewed here so check that out for more info; I don't want to bore you here by repeating myself! I can safely say that it is a fantastic all-rounder however: long lasting, pigmented, glossy, gorgeous colour... the list of positives is endless.


'Candy Apple' is the only bright red shade of the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters that we have in the UK. I would definitely class it as a 'red lip' colour, although it has a lovely sheer effect that means it isn't too in your face and could easily be worn as part of your everyday look. I love this about it, as I LOVE wearing red lipstick but my usual choice (Rimmel Lasting Finish in 'Alarm') is a little too bright and bold to wear everyday but 'Candy Apple' solves my problem! In the photograph I am wearing 2 coats of the lip butter and you can see the colour is well pigmented but still lovely and sheer.

This is another triumph from Revlon and a new staple in my lipstick collection! The Colorburst Lip Butters are £7.99 from Boots or Superdrug, but keep an eye out for offers as they often come around.

  1. Beautiful color! Do you have the shade Red Velvet in the UK? It's a darker red and I bought it because I thought it would work better with my skin tone than Candy Apple. It's worth checking out if it's available to you. :)

    2. Not yet, I was debating whether or not to do a review on my lip butters because it seems like everyone else already has, lol. But since you're interested, maybe I will do a review and swatch for all of them. :)

  2. This is a lovely shade. Like you said the red is sheer enough to be wearable for daytime but it still makes a change from the nudes and pale pinks.

    I dont own any lip butters as I bought into the Rouge Caresse hype! xx

  4. Very pretty! I have been wanting to try it out, but I wasn't sure if it would be too bright for my skin tone.
