Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter Strawberry Shortcake (Rs 650 for 2.5 g) available at Revlon Counters.Shade – I would call it a pretty baby pink/candy pink with slight silver shimmer. The shimmer is not very apparent on lips.
Packaging – I really like the packaging as it is easy to locate the vanity if you have more than one .The outer plastic cover has a quilted pattern which makes the total look very pretty. The shade name and number is written at the bottom. It is travel friendly and sturdy.Texture & Formula – It has a very creamy consistency that makes it easy to apply. But this creamy/milky texture makes the lip butter too slippery and it wears off easily. The formula is very moisturising and hydrating and lips remain soft afterwards also. It is soft and glides on easily on lips. The creamy formula can lead to melting and slight breakage of the lip butter in hot temperature. The shimmer present in the lip butter is very subtle and not all gritty.Pigmentation – Despite being a light shade, it is decently pigmented and helpful in covering pigmented lips. It is buildable to full coverage with 2 swipes. It is rather and opaque shade than being a sheer colour. The shade shows up fairly well on NC 35 and skin tones below that but its might come out little less on darker skin tones.
Staying Power – As said, the creamy formula leads to slippery feeling and the lip butter wears of soon. It stays for about 2 hours maximum which is really low but leaves the lips sift and smooth.
Ease of Application – It is easy to apply and shade shows up well in 2 swipes but over application can lead to colour bleeding as it is very creamy.
Overall Thoughts – I love the formula and the feel of this lip butter. I have been using this shade almost every day as it makes my face look so fresh. Also, it goes well with all looks. The packaging is great. It leaves my lips baby soft and hydrated but the staying power is a major con and I might finish up this one very soon because it as to be reapplied again and again. Also, the formula is so creamy that it might break in extreme hot climate.
Rating – 3.5/5
