Revlon Sorbet Colorburst Lip Butter
Revlon Sorbet Colorburst Lip Butter

Revlon Sorbet Colorburst Lip Butter ($7.49 for 0.09 oz.) is a cool-toned, fuchsia pink with a luminous finish.
NARS Jardin des Plantes is brighter, redder. MAC Lickable is similar in color. Guerlain Champs-Elysees is brighter, more pigmented. Revlon Raspberry Pie is a bit darker, less bright. Revlon Lollipop is less red, not as bright. See comparison swatches.

Wild Watermelon Colorburst Lip Butter ($7.49 for 0.09 oz.) is a brightened, medium-dark coral-red with a luminous finish. There’s surprisingly little warmth in this color–there’s some, but it doesn’t turn orange. Maybelline Shocking Coral is brighter, more opaque. MAC Fusion Pink has an iridescence to it. Guerlain Rouge Sensuel is more orange. See comparison swatches.

Both shades had buildable color coverage that ranged from semi-sheer to semi-opaque. There’s a noticeable translucency, which is as expected for the formula (they’re not designed to be full coverage), so the natural lip color will come through. If you have naturally redder lips, I expect both shades will appear redder as a result. The consistency is lightly creamy with a fair amount of slip, so they feel more like a lip balm than a traditional lipstick and feel that way, too. They will slide around the lips somewhat, but I don’t have issues with the color fading or feathering–mostly that the wear time is on the shorter end. Sorbet lasted three and a half hours, which is good for a Lip Butter, but short for shades like this (normally, I’d get five to six hours). Wild Watermelon lasted three hours. They were lightly hydrating but only while worn.
