On the bright side: I love the color. It's a beautiful cheerful red that looks bright without being garish, However, as a lip butter, I expected this to be a lot more moisturizing (bought it because I'd run out of tinted lip balm). I won't be buying it again even though I do like the color. It's not moisturizing enough to be a good balm and not long lasting enough to be a good lipstick.
The revlon lip butters are definitely some of my fav lip products to use whenever I want something that provides a lil moisture and yet deliver colour as well( and believe me, lipstick junkie here). Candy Apple is definitely one of my most loved shades from the range. Beautiful orange-red and a somewhat different shade. This shade instantly brightens up my complexion and allows me to have my pop of colour without going overboard whenever im in the mood for colour yet not feel like going all out. So glad I picked this up and can totally see myself gravitating towards this shade very often. Also is leaves a nice beautiful reddish stain on my lips even after it has worn off! <3 just love it so much and this lil baby has gotten me some nice compliments too! :) continued >>
Candy Apple is great when you want a pop of color that's not too bold for the office. It also looks good against my light-medium neutral complexion. I own three Lip Butters (Peach Parfait and Red Velvet being the other two) and Candy Apple is the only one that gets regular usage. The flimsy packaging is my only issue with this, but that's easy to get over considering how inexpensive it was.
This is the only lip butter that I own, but I really like it. The candy apple color is beautiful, and looks really good with my skin tone. I only marked it down a point because it isnt as moisturizing as I would like it to be and it accentuated flakes on your lips. I need to apply it over a lip balm in order to wear it, which kind of defeats the purpose of a lip butter to me. I would repurchase but I dont wear it very often so itll be a while before I'm out.
Bought this and some other shades of Revlon Lip Butters and I love it!!!
This color is perfect for spring!
This particular color has long lasting pigments and has buildable color to it.
Color pay off is amazing too.
The texture is smooth and not grainy like the Maybelline's Whispers line.
Overall great product and I'm not a lipstick girl so this is great!
One bad thing would have to be that the product would melt down if it was summer (because I live in SoCal) and the melted parts or bits slide out which can become messy.
NOTE: The only reason I won't be repurchasing is because I seldom wear makeup and I've already bought three different Lip Butters. I've compared them to the Maybelline Color Whisper lipsticks and prefer Maybelline's formula a little bit more, however I do like the shades/colors that the Lip Butters have to offer more so than the Color Whispers.
This is nice if you're just transitioning into wearing lipsticks, but it's definitely not for long-term wear throughout the day. I find myself having to reapply very often, but I do mess with my lips a lot when I know there's something there, so it'll probably be different for someone who's used to wearing makeup. It's not too heavy, but I think it's noticable when you're wearing it, especially if you apply a thick layer. It's not very moisturizing, and in fact I feel like it makes my lips drier after wearing. The price isn't bad for a drug store product, but at about $7 a tube, it's a bit expensive for me because I'm on a budget. This color is a very bright red and is slightly orange-toned, so I feel it could suit a lot of different skin tones. I feel it would look best on me with a nice tan since I have olive skin, I'll be testing that theory out soon!
I just love these lip butters! I also have it in Pink Truffle (a good MLBB) but this one just steals the show! What a lovely warm red this is! Too bad the other colors don't suit me, but I'm completely happy with the 2 I have :)!
Candy Apple is a warm, sheer red color with a satin finish. It feel like a lip balm on my lips, but the color is rather pigmented like a lipstick. The color is not a true red. I see a hint of coral on me. It's a perfect everyday red color that is not too striking or glamorous. I like to apply it heavily for a more opague look but it can be applied for sheer coverage. The formula is very soft so I'd be wary about leaving it in my purse or car during the summer. It feels nice and moisturizing at first, but when the lip butter starts drying on my lips in a few hours, the moisturization ends but the color remains strong. At that point I will apply a regular lip balm or another layer of candy apple to keep the moisture.
My HG red - finally! I have fair/medium, yellowish-olive toned skin (NC 35)...the blue-reds just don't cut it on me. I've been searching for a good wearable red for-freaking-ever. This is it. The texture is lovely; it goes on smooth and isn't drying. It's got a nice amount of pigment, so much so I usually blot for daytime wear to keep it from being overwhelming. It's a good idea to be sure your lips are completely smooth first, though, because any chapping or dryness will be obvious. Staying power isn't the best, but as it only takes a little bit to get a good amount of color, I don't mind reapplying several times throughout the day. I will definitely buy this one again, and probably even try some other colors.
For reference, I'm NC25. On my naturally mauve-y lips, this is a sheer, quite natural candy apple red color (har har). Nothing to write home about, but that's a good thing in this case. It doesn't overpower a smoky eye or make me look too made up, and is great for a wash of color when I want pretty lips without heavy lips. Can be worn day or night, and never actually gets very bright on me. I've worn this over Revlon Really Red for a strong, statement red lip, and they look really lovely together. Great to throw into my purse and apply on the run. Lasts a few hours before fading naturally, never leaves a chola ring around the lips.
