Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in "Juicy Papaya": Review +Swatches

I know I am very behind on the Revlon Lip Butter wagon, but I decided to give it a try after searching for the perfect coral-pink color. I wanted to find a product that is perfect for summer but could be sheered out to wear during the school year. I decided to buy the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in"Juicy Papaya", one of the newer shades in the collection that came out last year, and I was very pleased with the product!

The shade "Juicy Papaya" is a light-medium coral pink color that goes on a little sheer, but pigmented enough be built up to get a shade similar to the color in the tube. This shade has no shimmer and as Allison Anderson described it, it is the perfect "girl next door" shade. The shade is more on the natural side, but slightly bright enough to instantly awaken your makeup look. It's also a shade that can be applied without a mirror, since it's not a full-on lipstick.

Product and Packaging
The product itself is moisturising for a lip color with that amount of pigmentation. Since the product is moisturising, it makes the product apply more smoothly. The packaging is sturdy and solid without being bulky. The packaging is also adorable with a cap/lid that matches the shade of the product. The top of the lid is also clear, making it easy to see the color of the lip butter without opening up the product.

The downside to this product is that if you don't exfoliate your lips, it may settle in the lines and cracks of your lips. However, this is a minor problem and can easily be fixed with a quick lip scrub. The product also only lasts 1-2 hours on me and the pigmentation may also bother some, but it should be kept in mind that this is labeled as a balm and not a full-on lipstick.
