This has become the lipstick that I use most often. I've had passions for lipsticks before but there has only been one other colour/formula that I've hoarded multiple tubes of, so that I would have one in every handbag and never be without and that was my beloved Bobbi Brown Rosy Lip Sheer, which those evil people at BB discontinued! Still smarting over that.
But, Pink Truffle is almost as beloved as Rosy. As others have said, it's a warm pink with a moisturising lip balm feel. I usually don't like Revlon lipsticks as up until Pink Truffle I could never seem to find a colour that wasn't too brown, or orange or Barbie pink or just old-lady for me. I gave Pink Truffle a shot based on the promise of the formula. I figured that a lipstick that was promoted as being like a balm would probably be sheer enough to not be as heavy as most Revlon lipsticks seem to be, and I was right. What I also found is that Pink Truffle is incredibly flattering on me. The name is a total misnomer. This isn't really a pink and what on earth is "truffle" supposed to convey in terms of colour??? On me, this is a very warm neutral pink, which flatters my light, neutral skin tone and red hair. My lips are only lightly pigmented, but that pigment is pink, so lip colours that are supposed to be nude make me look like a corpse, taking all the colour out of me. Pink Truffle is what I wear when I want a "nude lip". It's the colour I wear most days and it works with office wear or with jeans on the weekend. It's moisturising, has good slip and doesn't feather. The only drawback is the staying power. There isn't much.
I'm hoping that unlike Bobbi Brown, Revlon will hang on to this colour and I'll be able to keep up my stock forever.
I am on the hunt for the perfect pink lip that will actually show up on my lips. I have Indian brown skin, so I have warm undertones, but I also have naturally dark pigmented lips, so often the color swatches that I see people do, do not show up the same on me. This color is great, it is a pinky brown color that shows up but it is not bright. It looks like a nice pinky brown nude color on my lips, which is a decent flush of color for me. It is glossy looking, not drying. I don't find it to be all that moisturizing on my chronically fry lips, but it is better than any other lipstick or gloss out there (I just put on some chapstick or lip balm before and then dab off the excess before applying this, though I do that for every lip color). It doesn't have that great of staying power, but it feels so light and is smooth, it's not too hard to reapply. The packaging looks nice but it is hard to pull the cap off, even after doing it a few times, you have to pull it hard, there is really no place to grip it. I am very picky about lipcolors, I own dozens, but I think I would repurchase this again. Not very cheap, I think I paid 10.99 for it at Shoppers, but it's the price range I expect for Revlon. I think this shade would work on a variety of skintones, warm and cool, because of the pink/brown mix.
Think this is going to be bought in bulk just in case it gets discontinued. Love it. This is my third lip butter, does not dry my lips and gives a glossy sheen. Most lippies are drying on me so this is a huge plus. It does not last long but wears off evenly rather than leaving a ring around the mouth. The colour is the nude I have been searching for over twenty odd years. I am super pale, shell in ELDW/ the lightest shade in every other foundation I have ever tried so nude lips can be quite a challenge to pull off. This can be applied sheerly to give a tint or more full on but even then it gives a brownish pink hue to the lips which looks natural. The lipstick case looks nice but is actually a bit dodgy to open from the bottom. The base is too thin to open it easily but the colour is great so I am very happy. Price is reasonable. Totally love it. Very natural colour. Perfect for using when you are focusing on eye make up and just need a dash of colour on the lips.
Finally caved after reading so many reviews and allowing myself MORE lipstick! I own Cherry Tart (cool red), Candy Apple (warm red) and Pink Truffle. I love the balmy feeling, love the MLBB shade. I line and semi-fill in my lips with Rimmel's lip liner in Addiction (my lips and lipline are terribly light) and this also helps the staying power. Very, very nice.
I love how moisturizing this lip butter feels! It feels very creamy and reminds me of a heavier tinted lip balm. Because its a creamy balmy texture, it doesn't have much staying power, so you need to reapply often. It will highlight any dryness, so you'll need to have smooth lips. The color works well with my pale skin and is a nice blend of pink and nude, it doesn't wash me out like some nudes can. I do wish the packaging was different with a smaller bullet, so I can be more precise in my application, but overall a great product.
I have almost used one up, LOVE this.
It is not drying but I wear lip balm anyway whenever I can.
This is such an easy to wear color on me, I wear this a lot whenever I don't know what to wear with or without makeup.
I would buy this color again.
I hate it on me. Heard such rave reviews here and wanted a mlbb lip color so tried this. Its not pinky brown on me, just a cool brown. So pigmented, not a swipe and go no mirror needed product as I'd hoped. Looks great on my mom who gets a lot of makeup I can't wear as she's a dark olive and I'm a very fair one.
One of my favourite colours of the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter range. It's a medium brownish pink, which on me is a MLBB colour. It glides on quite easily but isn't very long-lasting nor that moisturising (but it's not drying either). What I don't like is that, like with all Revlon lip butters, it's a bit pricey where I'm from.
This is a pretty pinky-brown toned color that is sheer and glossy but with no awful frost or shimmer. The texture is great, very moisturizing. Staying power is...meh. But, it's a lip butter so I wasn't expecting it to be ultra long lasting. Even though its sheer, its still pretty pigmented (if that makes any sense??). I can see this color looking great on all skintones. Lots of reviews mention that this is a YLBB color and I can def see that. However, on me, this is what I use for a nude lip on my pigmented plummy pinkish toned lips. Every nude I've tried (and basically, you name it...I tried it) makes me look either ashy, zombie like, sick or like I just threw concealer on my lips. But, this color, on my olive toned skin (NARS Sheer Glow Barcelona shade) and my pigmented lips this is my HG nude. Sometimes I wear it on top of Revlon Pink Pout (which was my nude lipstick of choice before finding this one) or MAC Snob to tone the coolness of their pink down. And FYI: this on top of Pink Pout with Rimmel Natural lipliner is an amazing combo....if you're an olive tone with pigmented lips and have a hard time finding a nude lippie that doesn't make you look sick/dead/zombie give this a try. It's reasonably priced so if you don't like it you haven't wasted a ton of money. Plus, its texture allows for layering so if you don't like it on its own, you can always use it to layer with other products.
This is better than my Dior nude 'lip blushes'...similar concept (moisturizing sheer lipstick) but surprisingly, better execution by Revlon! More moisturizing, huge variety of colours, better formula (doesn't bleed, lasts longer than most $$ sheer lipsticks).... The glide n feel is that of a high end item. Pink truffle is a masterpiece. Perfect blend of rose, brown, slightly berry. For some ppl it may show up as too brown, but if you have medium to dark skin, this may be beautiful for you. This shade has gotten me so many compliments - i disagree w/ negative reviews- this may be my most fave lip product ever!!! I also like Sugar plum...most of the line is good but these two are very easy to wear and very flattering fr me.
