There is so much hype over the Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter range. The few I’ve tried certainly live upto it! These launch in India last month with only 9 shades Some of the shades I wanted were very Creme Brulee and Macaroon but they aren’t launched in India. Oh well, today I’m reviewing Pink Truffle which is a favourite ever since I got it. I wear it everyday! It’ s a perfect MLLB shade.
Pink Truffle is a brownish pink which goes wonderfully with the natural colour of your lips. But more pigmented shades it will tend to look more like a dusty pink. With lighter lips I suppose it will be more of a darker nude pink. It’s a lovely everyday shade. Under flash you can notice some very subtle microshimmer but in daylight it’s more like a nice creamy finish.
The consistency is like a lip balm. It keeps your lips moisturized and soft. The overall finish is very glossy. The lasting power isn’t so great but I guess this isn’t meant to be a long staying lipstick. You would need to reapply every 3-4 hours. After 1-2 hours the built up significantly reduces and your lips look dewy. The staying power does differ from shade to shade. More pigmented shades like Raspberry Pie (which I will review next) stay on for much longer.
I love how easy it is to apply; there’s no tugging or pulling. It doesn’t settle into lines even when the colour is fading. It gives a very even and smooth appearance which I love. The quantity isn’t a l0t compared to other lipsticks of a similar price range, just 2.55g. And since you need to reapply, it will get over soon! I took this photo when I had just bought it but I’m already half way through.
I think Rs. 600 is a tad bit excessive. Wait for the online discounts to hit if you’re unsure! The packaging is so gorgeous. The plastic translucent cap is sturdy though sometimes you have to tug a lot for it to come out. The cap gives a relatively good indication of the shade. Very helpful if you have multiple lip butters to go through. 😉
