I’m going to play the “mom” card here and say that lately I have longed for “easy” makeup products that perform quickly because I haven’t had much time to spend on complicated makeup looks due to my kids crazy schedules, school, bday parties, and such! Lame I know for a makeup artist to admit they want the easy way out, but it’s the truth, and honesty is the best policy!! In prances Revlon’s Colorburst Lip Butters ($6) to save the day!!
This product isn’t supposed to be a fussy highly pigmented lipstick (like the 2 MAC lip glosses I’ve worn here and here!). It is touted as a “buttery balm that produces shiny color while also hydrating your lips.” And it does just that without looking too bare like some colored lip balms. I loved the shade I picked out because it’s so neutral that it will go with any outfit I throw on in the morning without clashing, while still making my lips look “put together,” no lip liner necessary.
I only bought one of these babies because honestly, money is tight and I’m the one to blame because I’ve recently made one too many makeup purchases since my birthday and the credit card is officially on fire – about to burst into flames! But if you want to see what a few of the other shades in this line look like on an actual person (no color swatches on arms here!), check out these posts from a couple of my trusted and favorite beauty bloggers:
- Michelle from Lipstick Rules, who shows the “peach parfait” color which is the shade Emma Stone is wearing in Revlon’s ad campaign, along with some others.
- Karen from Makeup and Beauty Blog, who sports the “cotton candy” shade along with some other current drugstore lip color products I might have to pick up at WalMart…darnit!!
