Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter

15 May

I have to confess – I am an absolute lip balm addict. Seriously, if I get to work and realise I haven’t got some kind of Vaseline/Nivea/Cocoa Butter on my desk or in my handbag, I freak out. Then I normally end up going to Boots at lunch and buying about eight more to calm myself down and guarantee that I will never, EVER be caught without the stuff again.

The only time my lip balm addiction takes a breather (apart from when I’m sleeping) is when I wear lipstick, which admittedly is a pretty regular occurrence but one which often leaves my lips feeling dry. Obviously there is the in between option of a tinted lip balm, but I tend to find these only give the tiniest sheen of colour and all too often are only available in a horrible pearlised pink or have a really gloopy consistency.

I was excited then to read about Revlon’s new Colorburst Lip Butters, which pack a full punch of colour with moisturising properties in a range of vibrant shades. I bought Peach Parfait since I already have millions of bright reds/pinks, and wanted something I could apply without having to reach for a mirror every time.

As you can see the packaging is really pretty and the colour itself is great – I love the delicate golden sparkle effect it has without feeling at all gritty. As far as its hydrating benefits go, it definitely doesn’t dry out the lips like some products do. However I have to say that if my lips are having a bad day I’ll still by rushing straight back to my Burt’s Bees!
