Swatches | Revlon Sugar Plum, Strawberry Shortcake, Lollipop and Crush

It is not new news that I love and collect Revlon lip butters.  Before they are launched in Hong Kong, I made my friends from Australia (link to my post), USA (link to my post) got me a couple of those in our swaps. Around the same time, I purchased a few locally (link to my post).  They aren't the cheapest of drugstore lip products, so I opted for really wearable shades.  Reminder to self: need to swatch them and do blog post!  

Recently, i.e. last Christmas season, Revlon Hong Kong launched more shades with buy-one-get-one promotion.  I went ahead and bought more, and surprisingly, I have made swatches for you guys!

Sugar Plum, Strawberry Shortcake
I tried to do the whole face of make up using mostly Revlon products, and came up with this really easy look.  I figure it is a very good canvas to showcase lip colours, so I went ahead and did 4 different lips with it.  Right after I started taking pictures I realised my lips were so badly chapped it was bleeding.  If it doesn't gross you out too much, then please ignore it and keep on reading; otherwise, I apologise!

ColorBurst Lip Butters are glossy lipsticks.  They aren't Lanolips-moisturising, but definitely comfortable to wear, even with cracked lips.  I like their formula as well as the colour selection.  Not the best in describing shades, so I'll leave it to other expert bloggers.

Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter - No.085 Sugar Plum is the perfect day time or office-appropriate medium pink on me.  It is not dark, but warm and adds sweetness to my complexion.  Very wearable and matches many looks!  No.080 Strawberry Shortcake on the other hand, can be a tiny bit tricky on me.  It is warm enough to adds liveliness and cuteness, but also light enough to make me look sick.  I need to wear significant amount of blush to avoid being washed-out.

No.075 Lollipop is a charming bright fuchsia.  I love how it adds interests and fun to my look without making too bold a statement - probably because it doesn't have too much blue hue in!

I have made an entire post dedicated to my love of Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain (link to the post) so I'm not going to discuss too far.  No.005 Crush is a shade I've been longing to get hold of, and I'm super glad they distribute it locally!  It is not too dark, no vamp or goth; but perhaps a tiny bit dark for normal day wear.  I don't care, because I have been loving dark lips so much recently, I find them really flattering on my skin tone.  Definitely personal preference here, me.

Lollipop, Crush

  1. I think Sugar plum looks amazing on you. If only it looked like that on my skintone =/ x

    1. Thanks! I think it will look nice on you too, soft and natural darker nude pink maybe? My lips are pretty pigmented so it can look different on yours~

  2. BOGOF sales are the best! Hopefully Revlon Malaysia will follow Revlon HK's footsteps in the near future as I would love to collect more Lip Butters. Currently I own Tutti Frutti and Pink Truffle.

    Crush does look amazing on you! Makes me wanna get one too!

    1. I really appreciate their BOGO sale, it is really nice and attractive, made me buy quite a bit! As they are normally not cheap-cheap as drugstore lipsticks! I love tuttifrutti as well! ((don't have pink truffle~))

      Crush is great!

  3. Oh I am obsessed with the lip butters! I just got Sugar plum and I went to go pick up Cupcake because I've been wanting to get that one, only I accidentally got Cotton Candy again! :( Fail! Now I have to go back again to get it!
    My favorites are Peach parfait and Macaroon! (which Sam sent me, cuz it's only available in the UK) <3 Kirstie

    1. Looks like I should get myself Macaroon, Pink Truffle and Cupcake too, if my budget allows :D

  4. I love how Strawberry Shortcake looks on you dear! Lovely shade, makes me regret not getting it!!!


    1. it is my fiancé's favourite out of these four. :") it is pretty, and pretty flattering on me. you can still get it, don't you? :)

  5. All those shades are so flattering on your skin tone... looks lovely!...My favourites are definitely sugar plum and strawberry shorkcake... I want those shades in my life!!
