Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter


As you may know by now, I like to enter competitions in my spare time. Last week I was lucky enough to receive not one, but two of these lipsticks that I won through the Revlon Facebook page. They were giving away 100 a day, each day a different colour.

When they arrived they were beautifully packaged which made receiving them that extra bit special.

Cute Candy Striped Paper Bags

I was even more impressed to open them and find some sweets inside!


This was what was inside each bag. Sweets too!

There are 20 shades in the range; the two I won are Peach Parfait and Berry Smoothie. They are both gorgeous and luckily are colours I will actually wear and pull off!

I'd describe Peach Parfait as a coral shade, with both peachy and pink tones, whereas Berry Smoothie is a slightly richer, pink shade. Both shades have glittery particles that made the lipstick quite shimmery looking. There are also 18 other shades! The lip butters glide on incredibly well and have all the qualities of a lip balm in a lipstick, with mango, shea and cocoa butters to moisturise lips. They RRP at £7.99 and are available at Boots, Superdrug, etc.

Pretty pleased with these!
Thank you Revlon!
