Product Rave: Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Cotton Candy

I have been searching high and low for the much buzzed about, Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters ($5.99). But not surprisingly, they have proved hard to find. Well, I just happened to spot a display of these lip butters at Rite Aid and although I was excited that I finally spotted these, I was bummed that the color selections that remained were shades that I would not normally buy for myself. Luckily, I spotted one Revlon lip balm that was right up my alley, and her name is Cotton Candy. 

Quick Product Facts
1. The lip butters are infused with shea butter, coconut butter, and hydrating mango
2. Provides a light-medium pigmentation that give lips a beautiful shine
3. These lip butters are available in 20 shades!

I really like the quilted design/texture on the pink plastic top. I think the packaging looks quite sleek, actually. It also feels pretty sturdy, too. Also, I appreciate that the nozzle twists the lip butter all the way down. I just love features such as this one because that way, nicks and scrapes on the product can be easily avoided. I can't tell you all how many times I have nicked a lipstick because the nozzle wouldn't twist all the way down, no matter how cautious I was when placing the top back on. 

Cotton Candy is a gorgeous, soft pink that contains small, smooth golden shimmers. Both the soft pink and the gold shimmers compliment each other quite well, and I really like the shine that this lip butter imparts on my lips. The shimmers are not overbearing at all. Cotton Candy is nicely pigmented, but not overly so. You can definitely build on it, though. I do detect a sweet fragrance which I quite enjoy. But no worries for those who are not fond of scented lip products, the sweet scent lessens rather quickly, once applied to the lips. 
This lip butter glided on my lips smoothly, and evenly. I noticed how I could keep layering, and layering the product, and my lips would never dry out or get flaky because of product build-up. My lips are often very dry, and believe it or not, I have encountered lip products that instead of adding moisture to the lips, dry them out instead. Cotton Candy felt super lightweight on my lips, never uncomfortable. 

I wish Cotton Candy lasted a little longer on me, though. I found that three hours or so, is the max time that this lip butter lasts on my lips. After the 3 hours, I have to touch up and apply this lip butter again. I found that my lips, did in fact, feel moisturized throughout the day. One thing that I would have really liked to have seen contained in this lip butter, is an SPF of some sort. I think that would have been a really nice addition. 

I love Cotton Candy, and I hope to spot more of these Revlon Lip Butter shades at drugstores. I think if you are on the lookout for an inexpensive, easy glide-on moisturizing lip butter that packs a nice amount of color, these lip butters may be something worth looking into.
