The only reason why I wouldn't purchase this again is because I have so many lip colors.

Pros: I really like the color. I'm actually warm-toned but I like the light innocent pink look. It doesn't make a bluish cast on my lips though I am warm or yellow undertone. Not moisturizing for lips, but looks moisturizing. I like the look this one gives. Glitter is not gritty, it's smooths onto lips and is not obvious either, just gives the butter a glowy pink sheen. Don't need lip liner to make the color look good. I like that it's not super pigmented.

Cons: You really need to constantly reapply this. Sinks into creases of lips and dries my lips a bit. Doesn't look the best when lips are dry. Packaging is cute, but when moving lipstick up and down the tube it builds up on the side creating a mess and losing product. Can't create a gradation lip look with it because it isnt very pigmented.

This is my favorite of the Revlon lip butters. The color is a milky pink color that goes great with cool tones. I am a NW20 and it looks extremely flattering. The formula is great as with most of the lip butters in the line.

There is no gritty texture and the micro glitter is more of a satin. It lasts about 2 hours before you have to reapply but it doesn't bother me because the smoothness of the butter is so nice to put on. It leaves my lips hydrated and not chapped.

Price is right for these and I find that while other brands have attempted the butter trend, Revlon still is the winner.

I generally love all revlon lip butters. I have dry lips but it is with these type of products that I get to wear vibrant lip colors. The texture of a lip balm but a shade almost close to a lipstick but not as loud, if that makes any sense - It's really perfect for me as it' doesn't aggravate the condition of my lips. Also, You can easily apply it without being too meticulous about it because it is pretty much like a lip balm. However, I am not thrilled with this particular color. I got this on sale but there was no tester around so I figured, what the heck! I got it on the way out & boy was I so disappointed with myself that I did. Texturr wise, it's perfect. Longevity is pretty averge & is similar to all the lip butters. Color pay off though? Uh, NO. This is paler than the actual color of my lips so it's not something that I dare wear every day unless I'm pegging for a corpse look. Sure, it'll come handy for heavy, smokey eye looks but i dont wear eye make up during the day. In fact, i hardly ever do! I'm sad because i thought it'd turn out to be a nice MLBB shade at the very least. Now it's just sitting there in my make up drawer, desperate for some attention. I'm not closing the door on this shade though... Perhaps i'll give it some lovin' when I do go on a night out in the future & decide to do smokey eyes. But till then... My favorite remains to be Candy Apple xx

This is a pretty sheer baby pink on my pigmented lips with a bit of shimmer. It is not too pastel or chalky looking. It is hydrating enough for my lips and has a balm like feel but I do have to reapply which is the only con I have with this color. I was able to get this on sale at Ulta for half off otherwise I don't think I would have bought it. I love the packaging and look forward to trying more colors.

This is a soft cool-toned pink with a bit of shimmer. The color is really sheer and subtle, and is good for a casual look. I find that the Revlon Lip Butters are better in the lighter shades than the darker shades because the lighter shades apply evenly and require less precise application.

Like all of the lip butters: applies smoothly, feels good, requires frequent reapplication.

I love the colour of this lip butter and really fell in love with the packaging; however, to me it did not seem to moisturize enough. I do not have super dry lips (as I use lip balm all the time), but this lip butter was lack luster in my books.

I wish more tinted lip balms came in this nice packaging though!

I really like this color. It's a soft pink, but brighter than my natural lip color. One thing I don't particularly like is that the product sometimes applies very sparkle heavy, but with some blotting that fades. The color is very long lasting (I even went to sleep one night and woke up the next morning with the color still visible on my lips!) I do have to put some Chapstick on my lips before applying it somedays when my lips are extra dry, but I have naturally very dry lips.

I love Revlon lipbutters, and I am so happy that I was recommended these, but I definitely did not like Cotton Candy.

Perhaps others can get a better, more natural sheer pink tint, but this shade was a full-out white-hot pink. It seriously looked like the baby pink Snookilicious lipstick (not that I have purchased that lipstick, but just from what I have seen in pictures), but even more white and unnatural. The sheer tone just came out too white on me. However, I also have full lips, so this probably looks more natural on someone with narrower lips.

This was just my experience and lip colors work very differently on each individual, so perhaps this color will look great on others.

Anyway, I also agree with another reviewer that I would instead purchase Berry Smoothie! A more pretty and natural pink tone! Seriously, just go with Berry Smoothie and don't bother with Cotton Candy.

Love this color! I usually never end up liking drug store items unless its mascara or Essie polish, and was pleasantly surprised with the lip butter in cotton candy. It is an adorable shae of light bubble gum pink, goes on smoothly, feels good on the lips. I added a dab of light pink gloss and it made it look even better. Great color, not too light or bright, would definitely re-purchase.
