Revlon Colorbust Lip Butters Review

I'm a bit a late on the bandwagon, I know, but I just had to do a post on these! The Revlon Lip Butters came to the UK in April I think, and since buying my first one and loving it, I bought two more completely different shades (I now have a red, a peach and a baby pink!) and I think it's time to review them!

In photos below L-R: Peach Parfait, Cotton Candy, Candy Apple.

I love the packaging of these, they look sleek and stylish but also with a pop of colour which represents what is in the tube and I also love that the top of the tubes are clear so you can see what's inside!

I don't think these are meant to have fantastic colour pay off as they are so creamy however the red shade "Candy Apple" can be built up to be a very pigmented red.

025 Peach Parfait

Apologies for my face/hair/outfit, the weather is miserable today!!

Peach Parfait was the first lip butter I bought and is a shimmery and glittery nudeish peach colour. Of all the colours I have, this is the most glittery so if you don't like glittery lip products stay away from this shade!

045 Cotton Candy

Cotton candy is a shimmery (though not as much as Peach Parfait!) light blue toned pink. The colour is build-able from sheer to a fairly decent coat of baby pink colour on the lips.

035 Candy Apple

Candy Apple is my most recent purchase. I chose this colour as I had been wanting to try out a red lip again but didn't want my lips to feel dried out. This colour is definitely build-able to a bright red colour but can also be applied more sheer. I find that this is the only lip butter I would need to use a mirror to apply as this is the most pigmented of the 3 I own.


  • Very moisturising
  • Build-able colour
  • Good colour range


  • Too expensive for a tinted lip balm (especially in the lighter shades, the red I think can be justified)
  • Some shades are very glittery
  • Stay power could be better
  • Some shades are very sheer
Overall, I would recommend these if you don't mind topping up your lip colour throughout the day and are looking for a moisturising lip product with build-able colour. If you want staying power, there are better lip sticks and lip stains than these products.

Thanks for reading!

RRP £7.99. You can buy these on-line, or from Boots (all Revlon Cosmetics are 3 for 2 at the moment!) or Superdrug (where the lip butters are on special offer at £5.99!)


  1. I really want the creme brulee lip butter but you're right they are expensive!

    1. They're on offer in Superdrug atm for £5.99! Helps the price issue slightly :) xo

  2. I really want to get my hands on the Creme Brulee and Candy Apple, but they are ALWAYS sold out at my local Superdrug/Boots. I can't believe they're still so high in demand!
