I am fair skinned with brown eyes and chestnut hair. I had been looking for the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Red Velvet for about a month. I had read so much about it. Most reds look garish on me. However, this is not the case with this product. It is beautiful and pigmented. Unusual for a lip butter. I gave it a 4 because it is not a long wearing product, which is to be expected for this type of product. It does leave a light stain. I must say it is longer wearing than any other lip gloss type product I have used before. It was a long search to find this color. When I found it, it was the last one left. So if you are looking for your perfect darkish blue/red, keep looking it will be worth the work you put into finding it.
I was a bit surprised by this shade. I bought Gumdrop and Cotton Candy and these 2 are quite sheer. RV is so pigmented just like lipstick. I'm not sure if I personally like this particular shade on me but I can make it work.
I wish they would make all the lip butters more pigmented or just call it lipstick with all the same formula. I feel like this whole line is a bit of gimmick. It's practically a tinted lipbalm. Burt's bees make better ones and it's half the price.
The most annoying about drugstore product is sometimes they never have a tester of the color so you have no clue what it looks like on you. I feel that they are never true to the color that is in the package.
I won't be buying any of these lip butters..I don't get what's with all the hype about these and I can't believe I fell for it.
It's a deep, creamy red. It's decently pigmented.
I thought it might be overwhelming on my very fair skin, so I hesitantly swiped on a tiny bit.
Seeing that it was fine, I added more. And more. And more, until I had a beautiful retro lip. With some cat-eye eyeliner, I felt beautiful.
Lasting power isn't amazing, but it feels so good to swipe on I don't mind :)
It has no scent or flavour, so it's fine for everyone.
I love this so much!
I like Red Velvet, but probably not enough to make me want to repurchase it. It's challenging for me to find a good red shade that can work on my skin tone. Some are too blue-ish and others are too orange-ish (maybe because I'm not that adventurous when it comes to lip colors). Red Velvet is a dark red color with brown undertone. It works well with my yellow-based complexion. However, I found that the formula isn't as moisturizing as the other shade I have, Pink Truffle. It settles into fine lines and can make my lips look like a prune :( I have to reeaaaally moisturize my lips before putting this on. The staying power is quite good, though. I'd say it lasts for 3-4 hours before I have to re-apply.
Love this stuff. I'm not too afraid of bold lip colors, but I never thought I'd go for such a deep red as Red Velvet. In fact, I bought NINE other lip butters (love them all) before I got this one - admittedly, Red Velvet was also the hardest to find, so that caused some delay too.
Anyway, it's probably my absolute favorite of the bunch. I'm very pale, with big eyes and short curly hair, and wearing this with just a good coat of mascara makes me feel like I'm from Hollywood or something. It's totally not too dark, or tacky, or distracting. It's just a beautiful, sophisticated, pigmented deep red. I even put it on to show my boyfriend and he said I should just wear it all the time.
I love the lip butters in almost every color, but I do agree, this is one of the prettiest and I think it'd be rather versatile. You should really give it a go, especially during this winter and holiday season when it'd be just perfect - I can't wait to wear this more :)
Love this red! Red lipstick often looks garish on me, but this looks really chic and nice. It's more of a brick red than a classic bright red, but I think that's what makes it work on me. It's neither cool or warm. It's darker and more pigmented than the other shades of lip butters, more akin to a regular lipstick but it's still semi sheer and glossy. Once swipe gives you a bold, not-quite opaque red and two will get you nearly full coverage. One coat blotted gives a lovely red stain.
The formula is great. It's not moisturizing enough to replace a lip balm, but it's soft and emollient enough to soothe lips that might be bothered by the cold, wind or indoor heating. It feels glossy and smooth on.
The wear on this one is really nice. The shine wears off after two hours or so, but the color sticks around for at least another two hours and towards the end of its life looks like a red version of a MLBB stain. I like that look a lot!
I'm going to try more colors like Fig Jam, which has more brown in it and Creme Brulee, which looks like a beautiful nude color. But, I tried Red Velvet first because of all the videos on Youtube that hyped it up. From what I could tell it looked like a marroon red, but on me it is a berry red veering towards bright. I think I like the color on me. I have to get used to it first. It is nicely pigmented and moisurizing like a balm.
I bought several lip butter shades including this one (Red Velvet). I wish I would have bought one at a time to test out. Red Velvet is more of a burgundy red than I wanted. I find Red Velvet to be drying and waxy. It bleeds badly, also. I haven't tried the other butters, yet. I hope they are better. I may try to return this.
Yes, yes,yes!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love it! Had such good staying power for me and its beautiful! I'm a college student and sometimes I find it weird to stop and reapply my lipstick between lectures, but with this I went to class and to the mall ( all well over 4 hours) and it still look pretty good! It was my first lip butter and it definitely wont be my last! THANK YOU REVLON!
Plus it's a friendly red, on my skin it was not too bold. I'm still too scared to go for the classic red lips, but this is totally buildable.'So if I want to go from my 'just bitten' tinted lips to a beautiful warm red, I just put some more on. I have some dark pigment in my lips (latina) but this totally showed up with one swipe! Go get it!
I don't know what all the hype is about with these Revlon lip butters. I don't find them that smooth or even that pigmented. Red Velvet is another red, nothing special to me. And they dry out after about having it on for about an hour. I also bought Berry Smoothie and the color was super sheer. I personally find the Palladio lip products to be much more smooth and hydrating. I wouldn't recommend this product!
