The bad news is that we only have 8 shades out of 21! Boo hoo!!
I picked up 020 Brown sugar with a 20% off at Watsons so I paid about $12 SGD instead of the U.P. of $15.95!
|Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter! In 020 Brown Sugar!|
|Only 8 shades of 21 can be found here...at least there seems to be a shade in each category of color, one coral, one pink, one red, one brown, one light pink...etc|
Here is a review post of all the shades of Revlon Lip Butters from Karla Sugar's website!
Photos are from the linked post!
The shades avaliable in Singapore are the following...
- Peach Parfait
- Cherry Tart
- Fig Jam
- Brown Sugar
- Strawberry Shortcake
- Sugar Plum
At least there seems to be a shade in every major color group however I wished they had brought it up to 12 colors...I'd have added Creme Brulee, Tutti Frutti, Red Velvet and Raspberry pie!

|You don't get much product though...|
|Looks like a solid coco color in the tube!|

Packaging & Product!
I think the packaging is really nice, feels like an extra luxe lipbalm packaged like a lipstick. I also dig the fact that the case of the tube matches the lip butter inside!
The product itself is quite special, I see this being a hit with people who don't like the heavy feel/coverage of lipsticks. This would be good for pre-teens and younger girls who want something glossy with some color.
I really enjoy the smooth, definitely buttery texture, it glides on so easily and kicks some color just like a sheer lipstick. It doesn't last very long on it's own as it is like a lipbalm.
I'm not afraid to over apply or to have it bleed as it is slippery enough but does not go outside my lips easily. I love to use this to tone down the color of my natural lips especially when I have darker eye looks.
|Bare lips! Very pink, sometimes it doesn't look very nice with darker eye make up!|

Paid: $12 (UP $15.95 SGD/ $12.80 USD)
They are comparatively pricier compared to what you pay in the States but this is a lot cheaper than regular drugstore lipsticks from Revlon/L'oreal/Maybelline)
Repurchase: Yes, I'll be going after peach parfait, sugar plum and macaroon!
Bottom line: For people looking for something that is light, glossy and easy to use this is for you! If you don't mind spending extra on a colored balm, it's not good for long hours, use stick to regular lipstick for that.
Have you tried the lip butters? Any favorite shade? Let me know!
