I keep reading reviews that say this is a universal MLBB shade. I gueuss I'm the odd duck because this is very unflattering on me. I'm very fair olive, lean very yellow with dark brown hair, brown eyes. On me this is a very dark brown that leans cool. It's muddy, very pigmented which in this case is a con because it's impossible for me to dab on just a bit in an attempt to get some use out of this. Just not wearable.
This seems more pigmented than the other LB's I've tried. It's sans shimmer/sparkle just beware its a very deep shade which is not mitigated by being sheer, nor glossy as it's neither.
Fig Jam has been my go to color since I bought it a few weeks ago. It's a rich, passionate color. It makes my lips look plump and sexy. I love how moisturizing it is. It wears evenly and leaves behind a slight hint of color. I adore how easy it is to apply ...... because of it's sheer formula ..... literally no mirror, no lip liner, straight from the tube gorgeous!
It is very much like Clinique's Black Honey (which I've used for years and also love), except Black Honey is a deep berry-red, and Fig Jam is more of a deep brownish-brick red. I know that description doesn't sound so hot, but it really doesn't do it justice. Fig Jam looks gorgeous on lips. I swear. It is the EXACT color of the inside of a fig. It is rich, intense, mysterious and passionate. And I feel like all those things when I wear it. I have no idea why, but it makes me feel comfortably sexy. Like I don't even have to try.
Really love this lippy! :)
This is my first Colorburst Lip Butter (yes...shocker! LOL!), and I love the texture and thickness of it. Very smooth going on, easy to apply, and it's medium thickness. So it's not so thin that it'll wear off in ten minutes, but not so thick that it's goopy. The color, Fig Jam, is very similar to Clinique Black Honey on my lips, except for that it's more brown. I'm an NC20-30, BB Sand, MUFE 118, to give you an idea of my skin tone. This isn't an exact dupe of Black Honey, but it's a close match!
Wow. I didn't know how much I would love this lipstick.
While I'm a huge fan of lip colour, I'm also very prone to low maintenance makeup, things that I can apply and forget. But I was in need of a random pick me up, and this had fabulous reviews, so I dubiously bought this dark little tube of lipstick, hoping that it wouldn't be TOO dark on my incredibly fair skin.
When I applied it, I couldn't believe how amazing it looked. The colour is incredibly sheer, so even as pale as I am, it doesn't look like too much...someone else called it a "vampy natural" look, which I didn't even realize was a thing. But it is, and it's this lipstick. Now, this doesn't last well at all...but that's not really the goal of the product. It feels lovely on my lips, not at all drying, and makes me feel kinda sexy :) highly recommended for pale types!
One of the few lip butters that wasn't overhyped!
Not only is this my favorite Revlon Color Burst Lip Butter, it's one of my top 5 favorite lip products, HANDS DOWN. (I've gone through 2 tubes and halfway through my 3rd) Like all the lip butters, it's great' easy makeup. It glides on easy, it's smooth, not sticky, and if you trust yourself enough, you could do it without a mirror. It moistens more so than other pigmented lip color products nut not as much as a dedicated balm. The color starts off sheer, but it's buildable.
The best thing about Fig Jam though is the color! In the tube, it looks like a deep rusty brown, almost like red clay. Swatched on your skin, the color appears to be a sheer dark red, maybe brick-like with some plum tones. On the lips, Fig Jam comes off as natural, but dark. It's striking. I call it my "vampy without trying too hard" lip color. It's just a sexy yet natural looking plum-red.
I can only think of two cons for this product. The first is that, like all lip butters, they're not long lasting. Which is fine, they don't claim to be long lasting, so I just throw it in my bad and reapply it throughout the day, but this leads me to my next problem. When I first use lip butters, they're fine, but once I get halfway though the tube, especially if I travel with them, they get SO MESSY in their own packaging. It gets difficult for me to apply without getting lipstick all over the silver tube, which then get's smudged over the inside of the cap. On warmer days, the consistency of the lipstick can get softer, and more pliable, which makes it even messier, but these are minor issues, and have no effect on my love for this product and shade.
Revlon lip butters have become a holy grail product for me. I have just about every color with Fig Jam, Creamsicle, and Gumdrop as my 3 faves. I love my lipstick, but rarely wear it in the winter season. because the Chicago weather wrecks havoc on my poor lips. I have to use EOS lip balm, Vaseline, and humidifiers everyday to combat chapped lips.
What makes the Revlon Lip Butters special is they moisturize and sooth like a lip balm, but they are very pigmented like a lipstick, yet they impars shine like a lip gloss. I actually apply a little EOS balm before applying my lip butter. Again, my lips are super dry in the winter, so these babies are a Godsend for me. This one product that I HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
This and Candy Apple are the only lip butters I've tried that I really like (the others ones I've tried Pink Truffle, Berry Smoothie, Creme Caramel, and Tutti Frutti, and they are all really overhyped in my opinion). As others have commented, this looks really dark in the tube but goes on a nice rich brownish red. It could be compared to Clinique Black Honey. Texture is wonderful - rich but not sticky, shiny but not shimmery, smooth and comfortable.
One of my favourite colours of the range. It's a brownish red that looks like a deep red on my lips (more of a "mature" look, good for autumn/winter). It glides on smoothly. Not that long-lasting or moisturising, and costs a bit more than what I'm willing to pay for here.
This is a very nice color-it looks scary in the tube, but it applies quite sheer (but can be built up for more color).
It's a warm burgundyish plum...and it looks good on me, and I have red hair. I don't think this is "brown", but it is warm enough to wear if you normally can't wear plums, and it's not so bright that it looks garish.
Applied lightly, it's a nice sheer warm plum MLBB color. I like to add a little more, and it really brightens up my face.
The smell is very faint, and reminds me of MAC lipsticks.
I can wear this as a lip balm, and find it a little moisturizing with great staying power. It feels just the slightest bit sticky, but not enough to complain about.
I am a fan of the Revlon lip butters. As others have noted, these are NOT full coverage lipsticks. I look at them as tinted lip balms. So yes, as with most lip balms, you may have to reapply if you want the full look. I also like these because the color can be built up.
Fig Jam is a great fall color. It's a brickish, brownish, reddish color. It's a good color if you're just beginning to wear darker colors. I really like this color and would definitely buy again. So I'll add this to my favorites of the Revlon Lip Butters. The other nice thing with this line is that everyone should be able to find a color that suits their look. There is a wide variety of colors and they are at a good price point. Often, they can be found on sale, most recently I found these on sale at Meijer for under $4. Can't beat that!
