I have always loved Revlon lipsticks, and I like this a lot after trying it out myself, it doesn't last that long, but this doesn't bother me. The color is nice, and non-drying. i was afraid to wear bright, red lipstick but i have always wanted to try; this particular color is a nice solution. I wear this when i go out with friends, and I would def want to buy other colors as well.
Very, sheer, very pretty colour on me, very moisturizing, this glowing redish-orangey colour, it doesn't stain, and it make smy lips softer and smooth and much more hydrated, and colour and flavor works best for me for colorburst froom revlon, the other colours are just much way too sheer for me. This very shiny bright shade works for me. The flavour and shade is awesome, this is my favorite Revlon product they ever prodiuced on the market, even batter than the Revlon ColorStay products. The shea butter is very moisturizing like the NatureLuxe from Cover Grll (CG) and I then have purchased this item at Walmart when I saw the commercial with the actress from Superbad and The amazing Spiderman - Emma Stone encouraged me to get it, and Iw as happpy that I did, so I wear this almost everyday and this is my HG lipstick
So for me, this colour was fairly atrocious.... For reference I have light blonde hair, blue eyes and very fair skin with a peach undertone.
I love the lip butters, and have tried many colours but this one just didn't do it for me. It has a blue-ish purple undertone and looks kind of magenta on my fair skin.
It also transfers to my teeth- gross. I do not suggest this shade for warm skin tones. It is a cool-tone colour.
An excellent sheer but buildable shade of orangey red. The only let-down would be for those with yellow teeth as this could enhance the yellowness so perhaps try before you buy. But all in all a great lip product just like the Red Velvet for those who are scared to try a red lip - makes it a whole lot more wearable.
HOT COLOR! I love Candy Apple for Fall, Winter, Spring & Summer. Great year-round face-brightening red!
This is MY TOP #1 FAVE of my lip butters. I own almost all of them. It's usually hard for me to find a warm red that isn't too clownish- too orange, brown or brick. This is it! I am now wearing this even more often than my Chanel Rouge CocoShine Sari d'Eau, or my MAC & Inglot lipsticks in similar shades.
I have pale warm NC 20 skin, blonde hair & blue eyes for reference.
I find Candy Apple to be pretty & feminine. A nice bright flirty shade that's not too sexy or dark for the office. I like pairing this with bronzed looks with Laguna or any golden bronzer like ELF's, or peachy or natural shades of blush. That makes the red lip pop. It also brings out blue eyes quite well.
The texture of the Revlon lip butters is moisturizing. Unlike others which are streaky, Candy Apple has a nice, smooth consistency. It's creamy & lovely. Finish is like a MAC Creamsheen lipstick, but more moisturizing. It's not longwearing. You will need to reapply after eating or drinking. I don't mind that. It doesn't have a smell or taste. The price is good. I will say that you'll use it up quite quickly. Also, be careful as these are soft and will smush.
Overall, Candy Apple is a gorgeous color, nice moisturizing product, applies smoothly, & is a great value. Will repurchase over & over. Highly recommend! continued >>
Revlon's Color Burst Lip Butters are super popular lip balm/lipstick hybrids. Just about everyone has at least one, and even if they don't they've read countless reviews on them. Revlon says that these moisturizing, sheer to medium opacity lipsticks contain coconut, mango, and shea butters to hydrate and boost lip moisture but 156%. No. Anyway, Revlon also says that the "gel formula provides supercharged hydration and glides on lips buttery smooth". This formula is so apparently hydrating that 94% of women who tried these butters felt "softer, smoother, instantly hydrated lips". Revlon offers 20 shades of their Color Burst Lip Butters, so there's at least a shade or two for everybody. I have Cherry Tart, and the subject of this review, Candy Apple. I reviewed Cherry Tart when the line first launched. I recently bought Candy Apple at Ulta for $5.43 for 2.5g (.09oz). I must've had a coupon or something, because they usually sell for about $7.50. This product was made in the USA. Revlon does not test on animals.
I really love the packaging for the Color Burst Lip Butters. The tubes are so cute and a little bit on the fancy side, futuristic as my roommate called them. Like I said in my last review, they really must look cool if guys are commenting on the packaging. The square plastic cap is made of translucent plastic that matches the shade, in the case of Candy Apple, an orangey red. There is a 3D quilted design on two sides of the cap, the signature mark of the Color Burst line. I really like the cute detail and texture that it adds to the packaging, it's kinda classy for the drugstore. The black base of the twist up tube bears the Revlon logo. The shade name and number can be found on a sticker on the bottom of the tube. A full ingredient list and some company info can be found on a peel off sticker on one of the non-quilted sides. I just really adore the look and feel of this lipstick's packaging. It seems sturdy too, so feel free to toss your lip butter in your purse or pocket. The packaging is a little too sturdy, it can actually be really difficult to get the cap off. Sorry that turned into one of my famous Revlon packaging rants. I just really..I'll stop.
The texture of Revlon's Candy Apple Lip Butter is very smooth, silky even. However it grabs strangely when applied as you'll see in my swatches. Initially it feels pretty moisturizing but as the lipstick settles onto the lips it becomes stickier and dries. Not balm lip at all, no long term moisture to speak of. Actually my last Lip Butter experience resulted in horrendously dry, chapped lips to the point that they bled. Nothing healed them except Maybelline's Baby Lips. It was terrible. I haven't experienced the same situation with Candy Apple, luckily. I actually bought Candy Apple to see if the terrible chapping was a one off or a universal thing with the line. Even though Candy Apple didn't wreck my lips, I still don't dig the feel of it on my lips, it's oddly distracting. I should make mention that the Color Burst Lip Butter line is flavorless and scentless, which I usually wouldn't mind, but in their case I think it's a little unfortunate just because they all have really yummy names. Wouldn't you like Candy Apple to taste like it's name? NOM.
Candy Apple is a sheer, neutral red. There is a soft orangey tone to it, but it doesn't really pull through on the lips. On the lips, Candy Aple looks like a sheer version of the classic, straight up red lip. A color most can pull off. Though it is sheer, a few passes around the lips can really build up the color. I was surprised by Candy Apple's finish, it's no where near as glossy as Cherry Tart. Candy Apple has more of a satiny finish to it, I really like to layer ELF's Super Glossy Lip Shine in Honey Do over it for that really sexy juicy lip look. The wear for Candy Apple is decent, it seems to be about 1 1/2 to 2 hours on me, maybe a little bit longer if I wear a gloss over it. That's pretty reasonable wear for a sheer, balm like lipstick.
Revlon's Candy Apple Color Burst Lip Butter is pretty good. It applies a little patchy, but it can be worked with and the texture is decent. I still don't find them moisturizing and I don't know why so many people go nuts about them. These lip butters really aren't that fantastic, everyone needs to calm down about them, it's been nearly a year and I still hear tons of buzz about them. They were recently released in Australia while I was there, and it was like..the second coming of lip butters, so I had to ride the wave of "OMFG" twice. I love the packaging and the color of Candy Apple, both are really pretty. I likely wouldn't repurchase either of my Revlon Lip Butters, but I plan to keep wearing Candy Apple on a frequent basis. I'm so glad it didn't wreck my lips the way Cherry Tart did. I recommend this lip color if the color catches your eye, or if you want to wear a red lip but feel a little shy about it.
This is the best red I've ever tried! It feels great, and the packaging is so pretty. but best of all, it has a great look once you put it on. It leaves a really pretty stain behind too. :) love it.
Another fabulous red from the Lip Butter line from Revlon. This is an orange based medium intensity red with no micro shimmer. Compared to Cherry Tart, this almost leans Coral. It is very smooth, creamy and pigmented. Perfect for year round wear!
Such a pretty red colour, looks great on people with tan skin!! My mum wears this every single day and absolutely loves it :D Yet again, the Revlon lip butters have impressed not only me, but my mum and sister as well!
I love this color!!! I am hispanic and I have a hard time find reds that look good on me. But this one is a winner!
