Revlon Colorburst lip balms

Lots of talk and rave about the Revlon Colorburst lipbalms, so, I couldn't resist the temptation to order a few. Since I couldn't find them on an online store, I decided to get them on eBay. I usually purchase drugstore items on eBay, I was never dissapointed.

The shades I chose are:

001 Pink Truffle
015 Tutti Frutti
070 Cherry Tart

Here they are swatched on my hand, it the same order

On my lips, Pink Truffle is a medium berry pink, Tutti Frutti is a very wearable, discreet orange (if you're afraid of orange but want to try it, this is an option) and Cherry Tart is a pink red.
Do I like them? Yes, very much. The reasons are:

-they do feel very moisturizing, rich and luscious, it's quite difficult to describe the sensation.
-the shades that I chose are really pigmented, but, being a lip balm, they are not harsh or too intense, in the way a lipstick can be. I would call them a soft focus kind of pigment, meaning that it is apparent but not screaming in your face. Be aware though that not all of the shades are pigmented, I looked at a lot of swatches before deciding to buy these three.
-I like their packaging a lot, because I can see at a glance the color I'm looking for, since the caps are color matched to each shade. Do you hear Mac?

Would I buy them again? Yes, there are 1-2 more shades that I'm interested in (Candy Apple for sure since I' m becoming a red lip maniac, LOL!!!)

Do I find them indispensable? No, I think a clear lip balm and a lipstick will give you similar results.

The only thing that hinders me from getting more is that I don't know how they will react to the hot Greek summer. I'd hate to buy a bunch of them only to discover that they melt in my makeup purse!

That was it for now, please once again excuse the crappy photos, I hope that at some point I'll get a thingy to connect my camera to the iPad.

Hope you're all well and thriving!


  1. Just this morning I ordered a couple myself from ebay. I choose berry smoothie and peach parfait but I liked a lot of other colours too. I don't think anyone considers them indispensable as lipsticks. I think that the thing is that they are lipbalms buta are so pigmented that you don't need to wear an extra lipstick. Well I am waiting for mine for a better opinion

  2. Το Cherrt Tart μου αρέσει πολύ!
    Νομίζω πως το ebay είναι μια λύση, μιας και ούτε εγώ τα βρίσκω online!
    Μου έβαλες φωτιές...

  3. Αχ τα γλυκά μου! Τι καλά!!! <3 Cherry Tart!

    Δηλαδή δεν είναι διαθέσιμα στα δικά μας Hondos Center; Πφφφφ, απορώ γιατί ο πάγκος της Revlon είναι γενικά λειψός εδώ...

  4. @smugnificent το peach parfait είναι πολύ ωραίο, από τα swatches που έχω δει, με το καλό να τα παραλάβεις!
    @Angelmary αξίζει να το ψάξεις, η αίσθηση ειδικά είναι πολύ ωραία
    @cbsg5681 ήμουν ανάμεσα σε αυτό και το candy apple, που είναι πιό ζεστό κόκκινο., τελικά προτίμησα το cherry tart αλλά άμα ξαναπάρω το candy apple είναι πρώτο στην λίστα.LOL! Πάντως φαντάζομαι πως θα έρθουν και εδώ, αλλά σε 1-2 μήνες, ρώτησα και πριν λίγες μέρες στον Hondo, δεν ήξερε τίποτα η υπάλληλος.

  5. Αχ... πες μου απο ποιον πωλητή τα πήρες...pleaaaaase!


Thank you!
