|Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Red Velvet #40
|I love this classic red tint
I am a fan of makeup but still tend to stay at the drug store level when I make a purchase. I have a ton of glosses for my lips but recently decided to try the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters.
I had been hearing rave reviews about the line for a while on the web so I figured I would give it a go. At first glance, the line has a lot of different shades to offer. I’m always a little leary though because I don’t want to end up with a shade that is too light or ashy for my skin tone. However, there was quite a range in color, so finding a shade for me was not very hard.
I first went for a pinky color called, Berry Smoothie. This one is nice for when I want a wash of color and a little moisture for my lips on the go. However, the shade that truly makes me gaga is the Red Velvet. The color is pigmented enough to pull my whole look together without much effort but also helps with dryness. I love red lips but this gives me a nice, understated red that still works for everyday.

The Lip Butter formula is hydrating to the lips thanks to the added “mango, shea and coconut butters”. It also imparts a shine which I love. I tend to reach for either of these shades now when I’m in a hurry because they give me moisture and color in one swipe.
