Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter in Pink Truffle Review

The Revlon Lip Butters (£7.99) are something of a cult classic, so when they were included in a 2 for £10 at Superdrug I just had to pick one up. Revlon is one of those brands I don't naturally gravitate towards, as I feel the branding appeals more to older women, however I know they do have some of the best drugstore products around.



The pigmentation seems to vary widely across the range; though they all fall somewhere between a lipstick and a tinted lip balm. Pink Truffle seems to be one of the sheerer shades, adding a glossy sheen and a hint of natural colour. As a result it doesn't swatch so well! But here are the swatches anyway; the left is without flash and the right is with:


 As it's such a sheer colour, here is a before (left) and after (right) to give you an idea of the difference it makes. 


The finished look is a nice, natural touch of rose. I'm really not into lipgloss, I'd even go so far as to say I dislike it! So for me I'll always get a lipstick product with a glossy finish if that's the look I'm going for. This definitely fits the bill.



It lasted me around 3 hours when eating or drinking, which was expected as it's a gloss-finish product, so you can probably get another hour or so out of it if you aren't going to be eating/drinking. When it does fade there's still a nice, subtle flush of colour.

All in all I really like the concept of something between a tinted lipbalm and a lipstick and I really love this natural, everyday muted pink. Now I've entered the workplace I've come to appreciate a good subtle lip product.

TL; DR

Pros 

* Natural shade
* Would flatter lots of skin-tones
* Very quick and easy to apply and touch up
* Hydrating
* Glossy but not super-shiny finish
* Natural and even fade
* Reasonable price

Cons

* Could be a little more durable
* May be too sheer and not pigmented enough for some

The Verdict

Durability:                    ***
Colour:                       ****.5
Hydration:                  *****
Pigmentation:                 ***
Ease of Application:    ****.5
Value for Money:       ***.5


Overall

****/5
