Revlon Lip Butter Collection {Swatches}

I was organising my lipsticks and discovered that I had quite a few Revlon Lip Butters and thought why not share my collection with you. I own 7 lip butters from the range and I have been loving them at the moment. I have bought these at different times and took advantage of different sales from Priceline and Chemist Warehouse so I didn't spend all my pay in one go ;D.

From Left to Right: Pink Lemonade, Juicy Papaya, Tutti Fruitti, Sorbet, Wild Watermelon, Invite Only & Provocative.

All the Revlon lip butters come in a rectangle lipstick tube which has a quilted, check pattern running down two sides. I find this so unique and I think it jazzes up the packaging making me want to pick them out more from the crazy amount of lipsticks I own. What I really like about the Lip Butters is that they are slanted which gives really good precision when applying in one go. They twist up and down and I really like how once you are finished using the Lip Butter, you twist it all down and you hear a faint click so you know that it won't smudge all over the sides and lid. I just hate when I go the drugstore and all the lipsticks are squished all over the lid! {Just me?}

The formula itself is alright. It's a gel formula which provides hydration and allows the lip product to apply smooth. I'm a fan because they are a sheer lip butter and you can build up the pigmentation. They are supposed to be moisturising but I find them awfully thick and heavy on the lips and it wears off quite easily. They feel nice after you apply them and they keep your lips moisturised for a good amount of time. The only issue I have is that before it start to fade it made my lips feel a bit tight so I would recommend reapplying regularly to keep your lips hydrated. I find that they do catch onto dry lips so make sure to exfoliate and apply a light layer of lip balm on your lips beforehand.

Even though there are some things that can be improved with the Lip Butters, I will continue to use them up because they do a good job at providing a sheer colour to my lips when I can't wear my matte lipsticks due to stanky hot weather and chappy lips.

Pink Lemonade:
I'm never one for really light pinks but I saw this ballerina pink shade and I had to get it.
Juicy Payaya:
I am IN LOVE with this pink coral shade. It's so subtle and natural and I'm actually obsessed with it.
Tutti Fruitti:
I mentioned this orange shade in my January Favourites and I have been wearing this a lot lately.
This hot pink shade looks really scary in the tube but looks really nice on the lips.
Wild Watermelon: 
I love this red shade lip butter because it's not an overly scary red and can be worn everyday.
Invite Only:
 This shade is blue with silver and blue tiny sparkles in it and goes on the lips clear with a bit of glitter. 
This is purple in the tube and has tiny purple, blue and silver glitters in it and goes on clear with some sparkle.

To be honest, I don't even know why I bought the last two shades. Maybe because they are limited edition and the colours on the packaging reeled me in. I don't really have a use for "Invite Only" and "Provocative" as they feel more heavier than the other lip butters and they look like the same colour on the lips. Nonetheless, I still enjoy having them in my collection and I'm sure I will find a use for them.

The Revlon Lip Butters come in 20 different shades so there is something to suit everyone. The price is a bit steep at $21.95 at Priceline which I think is crazy ridiculous. Luckily, I have never paid full price for these Lip Butters because places like Chemist Warehouse have sales on drugstore products all the time so make sure to do your research to see where you can get the best deal. 

I don't think I am going to purchase any more of the Revlon Lip Butters as I think I have enough at the moment. I do prefer my Maybelline Color Whispers to these Lip Butters because they apply so smooth and feel so light on my lips however that doesn't stop me from using the Lip Butters.

Have you tried the Revlon Lip Butters?
What are your thoughts on them?



  1. (Limited edition ANYTHING ropes me in everytime. There's a box of limited edition Cheerios in my kitchen as proof)
    Loved this post!! I really do like these lip butters because they're so sheer. 'Wild Watermelon' and 'Tutti Frutti' are going into my 'To-Buy' list!

    1. hahaha YAAAY!! The darker colours are a bit more pigmented than the lighter ones! :)

  2. I didn't know Revlon had limited edition Lip Butters, maybe that's because I never really follow up news on them. Ha. Ha. You have a really nice collection though, they're super adorable! It's been forever & I'm still trying to get my hands on 'Red Velvet' but they always go out of stock.
