Swatch & Review: Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters

(Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters)
There have been a ton of interesting beauty products launched during my absence, and I'm excited to start reviewing them. Since this is the first week of Spring, I thought I'd make it our word of the day, and feature a product I think is perfect for this season (of course a great lip product can be used any time of the year, but these shades in particular fit in perfectly with Spring).

Since their launch late last year, the beauty blogosphere has been buzzing about the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters. This weekend my local drugstore had these babies on sale for only $3.99CAD (Regular price $7.49-$10.99CAD for 0.09 oz.) I couldn't pass up the deal, and selected 4 Spring friendly shades (out of their 20 colour range), to bring my total up to 5 lip butters to talk about today. Full review, lip swatches, shade descriptions and more below.

In honour of St. Patricks Day, today’s Word of the Shay is Green. Green as a noun of course is the colour one gets when mixing the primary colours blue and yellow. And it just happens to be my significant other's favourite colour. Here is my leprechaun approved St. Paddy's day manicure featuring some fun green polishes.

I applied my Nail Life Gripper as a base coat, followed by three coats of Sinful Colors Irish Green, and 1 two coats Icing Happy Go Lucky glitter polish. On my thumb, I skipped the glitter and painted on a small four-leaf clover with L.A. Colors Art Decor Green nail art polish. Lastly I sealed it all up with a coat of Nail Life Speed Demon topcoat. More photos below.
