Review: Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Raspberry Pie & Tutti Frutti


Drugstore
Price:  $7
Rating:  ☺☺


Overhyped.  The colors are nice, but it's too much of a pain to maintain.  

If you don't like the look and feel of gloss on your lips, I would avoid these.  

Raspberry Pie:  Deep magenta 
Tutti Frutti:  Soft peach 

Pros
+I like to use these more as a lip tint or stain for a sheer wash of color on the lips.  The product is much more manageable in this way.  Apply and blot over lightly with tissue--this will take off the excess gloss, but still leave a light glow to your lips.  

Cons
-Overly glossy:  It's difficult to build up the color, particularly with Tutti Frutti, because of the slip.  The color transfers and moves around every time your lips touch, leaving blotches of discoloration.  With that said, once you manage to build up the pigmentation, it ends up bleeding off the edges of your lips because there's too much product.  
-I don't actually find these as moisturizing as everyone says.  I think people mistaken these for being hydrating because of the balmy/slippery texture.  Like most lipsticks, these do dry out your lips as the day goes on.  
-If your lips are dry to begin with, the product will settle into creases.    
-Fades quickly

Notes
.These will melt like butter in under warm temperature.
