I had to try these, and given the very limited colour selection where I live, I chose candy apple. I figured, if it's unwearably bright then at least it didn't cost much... This colour is a bright, orangey-coral red on me. I do not see any blue in it at all. It looks best as a sheer layer of barely there colour, or a brightening top coat on top of another lipstick. The texture is very moisturising. I would buy the product again, but not this shade - it would be great in a natural rosy-pink.
i wasvery excited to try these lip butters & im so not disappointed..i really really love this candy apple. the colour pay off is exactly right for me & it moisturizers well. i would prefer if it had more staying power HOWEVER given this is a cross between alipstick & balm, its perfect. highly recommended colour!
the only gripe i have is the packaging. the bullet fits so snug onto the cover & there is no ridge or bumpy area for grip making it difficult to open.
the revlon butters are kind of hit or miss for me- some i love, some i hate. this is definitely a "love" one. the color is bright and gorgeous, and looks great sheer or opaque. the texture is amazing - feels just like a lip balm :) will totally rebuy.
As always, these butters are VERY moisturizing. Similar to Tutti Fruitti, this colour requires my lips to be exfoliated otherwise it shows off any dry areas. It can be either a sheer juicy red that brings life to your lips OR it can be layered for more of an opaque lipstick. I'd repurchase but, not as fast as I'd repurchase Fig Jam.
This was my first lip butter and I have since bought another. I love the texture these have on the lips, great for the winter when my lips tend to be on the dry side. I would say Candy Apple is a sheer-medium coverage orange-red balm. If I want it to have a bit more pow, I'll fill in my lips completely with lip liner and then apply for a true red, but if I'm in a rush or just don't feel like wearing a full on red lip, one or to swipes of this give a nice red lip that isn't too flashy and is pretty sheer. I've been wearing this everyday since I purchased this. Can't believe I have a red that is getting more use than my Mac Russian Red! I'm an NC20 for reference. I chose Candy Apple over Cherry Tart because I hate glitter and the Cherry Tart looked like sparkle city in the tube in the story.
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!
