Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters + Swatches + FOTD


Hey Guys!
I was searching for the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters at my local Walmart, Shoppers, and Rexall,and FINALLY found these last week at my local Rexall. It ended up being worth the wait because Rexall had a Buy one, Get one, sale going on on all lip products! I ended up getting 4 shades: Tutti Frutti, Peach Parfait, Creamsicle, and Creme Brulee. I really wanted Strawberry Shortcake, but they were sold out. My favourite of the 4 shades I picked up is Creme Brulee. In fact, Creme Brulee is my new HG nude lipstick! It is incredibly creamy, moisturizing, sheer, and extremely flattering on my NC30 skintone. It isn't a straight up ghostly nude that makes you look dead/have concealer lips, but it has a hint of colour and works well with my natural lip colour peaking through. I think a moisturizing nude lipstick is essential and much easier to pull off than a matte nude (i.e., MAC Myth l/s). 


Some of the shades are more pigmented than others. Tutti Frutti is extremely orange. I myself LOVE orange lips, so it is one of my favourite shades, but others may be turned off by how bright it is. Peach Parfait is really beautiful as well. It feels slightly gritty on the lips though due to the glitter/sparkle in the formula. Creamsicle is a milky nude that settles a little bit into fine lines. I like the colour, but probably wouldn't repurchase it again because I love Creme Brulee so much more! the only thing i dislike about these is the packaging. the clear coloured packaging cheapens the product, in my opinion. i would prefer a solid black quilted packaging, like they've done in the past, or simple plain black or gold would look more elegant as well.

FOTD
I wanted to post this FOTD because I've been wearing the same look for an entire week now. It is nothing out of the ordinary for me, I just think the eyeshadow combo blends beautifully together to create a slightly more dramatic daytime eye for myself. Usually I wear a lighter nude on the lid and lightly darken the crease, but I've been experimenting with a darker lid lately. I think this is the perfect makeup for daily wear that isn't too heavy, but looks youthful and light. I'm back to using my Make Up For Ever HD Foundation daily. I keep trying out new foundations, and going back to old favourites, but I ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS go back and repurchase MUFE HD. It is safe to say that it is my tried, tested, and true foundation that just seems to work with my skin.
Please excuse my PJs. I had about 30 seconds to snap a couple photos of my makeup before I had to get dressed and run out the door for work. I literally had 5 minutes to take photos, brush my teeth, do my hair, get dressed and pack my lunch. I wanted to get a better picture of my eye makeup, but didn't have time.

  7. Love the swatches! I don't have any of these ones, so it was nice to see the shades. My faves are Berry Smoothie and Strawberry Shortcake, so I hope you can find it!

  8. Oooh, now you're making me want Creme Brulee! :) So far I have Strawberry Shortcake, Peach Parfait, Strawberry Tart, and Cherry Tart. I may return Strawberry Tart because it just looks like a bright berry on my lips, strangely enough. I'd like to try Cupcake and Cotton Candy, but I'm nervous they will settle into fine lines (like Creamsicle). I actually enjoy the clear, colored packaging of these lippies, because it's different than most boring lipstick packaging and I can identify each shade much easier this way. ;)
