Revlon Strawberry Shortcake ColorBurst Lip Butter

Revlon Strawberry Shortcake ColorBurst Lip Butter ($7.49 for 0.09 oz.) is a blue-based cotton candy pink with silvery-white shimmer. MAC Enchantee is lighter and less blue-based. MAC Dress It Up is slightly less blue-based. MAC Behave Yourself is just a tinge pinker. MAC All Styled Up is similar but doesn’t have shimmer.

It has a slightly milky/creamy texture so you may see lines if you press your lips together. The color is rather opaque, even though it’s supposed to be sheer to medium in regards to color coverage. For those who were interested in the Lip Butter range for sheerer color, this shade may not be the right pick for you. If you very lightly tap it on and add a little balm, you may be able to get the sheer color you’re looking for. The formula is unscented.

It has a very creamy consistency that makes it easy to apply, because it glides right on, but there’s a fair amount of slip. The biggest downside to having as much slip as this product is that it does have a tendency to wear off easily (this shade lasted two and a half hours on me), but it is a more moisturizing formula. ¬†With lighter colors like this, the added slip can make it more difficult to get an even layer of color, because it tends to bunch up on itself or streak, which is why you’ll see a point deduction in the texture¬†category.

This lip color would be lovely on cooler skin tones or paired with a really warm eye and cheek combination. It's more opaque than Revlon describes, which may be a good or bad thing, depending on what you're looking for. As with other shades in the Lip Butter range, wear time can be an issue.
