I used to own almost every Revlon Lip Butter, but I slowly purged them from my collection, and now the only two I have are Pink Truffle (because it's so wearable and work-appropriate) and Candy Apple (because it's so bright and fun).

Candy Apple is a warm, summery, juicy shade of red. It reminds me of the shade your lips turn when you've just eaten a strawberry popsicle. Almost all the other reds in my makeup collection are matte (or at least opaque), so I really enjoy changing things up by wearing this sheer, jelly-ish color to brighten up my face on light-makeup days.

The formula of the Lip Butters is just okay. They have a comfortable, balm-like feel on the lips, and no noticeable scent. They can be a little messy, and they aren't at all long-wearing. But this particular shade, imo, is worth it.

After reading so many reviews and looking at countless swatches, I thought this would be a nice warm-leaning red, but it pulls very pink-fuschia on me (I am very pale, yellow undertones, green eyes, brown hair). The only way I can wear this is if I blot most of it off, so I'll be passing this on to someone else. (For reference, Pink Truffle is my perfect MLBB colour.)

Okay, intellectually I know that this shade looks lovely on many people. Somehow, on me, it looked sickly and cheap. I keep making this mistake, in that I keep buying red-orange lippies (Nars Jungle Red, Burts Bees Rose, Mac Lady Bug) in the hope that they'll look joyful and enlivening. They always make me feel a bit nauseous. I also found the formula a bit slimy. I do love Pink Truffle though, which wins me no end of complements.

I just got this shade and it's the very first Revlon Lip Butter I have tried. I kept reading make up reviewers here and elsewhere( and a Revlon representative said it is too) describe this shade as a warm red but on my lips and my hand it's more of a neutral shade almost cool blue toned and those shades never look good on me even in the tube it sort of looks this way.This looks nice but not great,and I was really hoping it would be a warm red shade like Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick is in the shade Red Laquer.

I have to put this over the Candy Apple to get the more warm red I look best in.I'm also not crazy about the feel on my lips it feels more like a greasy lip gloss,chapstick feels better on! Also Covergirl's Smoochies lip balm is *so* much better,it's moisturizing but not like greasy lip gloss like this,and their shade Tweet Me is a warm pretty shade of red on me.

Love, love, love, love.
Color is so juicy everyone will want to lick your face (which of course, on occasion, can be a pretty bad thing).
Also fades very evenly and you need not worry about it being all over your face after indulging on some sugar coated...whatever.
Kind of leaves a stain - always a great thing.
BUMMED that it's not available in Sweden or I would without a doubt own every single color.

I own three different colors of the lip butters. This one is my most recent purchase, and my favorite of the three. The others are Berry Smoothie and Sugar Plum. Sometimes I apply it straight, no lipbalm, sometimes I might dab on a tiny bit before.

The red is definitely warm, but not orange-y. It brings out some green that I have in my eyes. I have very pale olive-y undertones, so I like to have some cheek color when I wear this. Works well when I wear a bright colored top that might otherwise be a bit too strong for my coloring, and with white/ivory tops as well.

I love the texture, the smell is pleasant and not too noticeable. It does have shimmery things just like Berry Smoothie. Normally I don't like too much of the glittery stuff, but in this particular shade it seems to work well. It just looks like a glazed red from a distance, and I'm not able to see the gold flecks just sitting on my lips (looking at you, Berry Smoothie).

Overall a fun, modern take on a classic red lip.

I'm such a huge fan of the Revlon Lip Butters in general...they actually got me into lipstick.

BUT...I cannot wear this shade. I saw multiple people comment that no matter their undertone, it still looked good on I took a chance. It's a gorgeous, orangey-red that I really love. But it's just straight up too orange for my very neutral tone. It looks awful on me.

The formula is still amazing in this lip butter, it's got a nice, jelly like finish and takes a while to fade (and fades in a non patchy way when it eventually does!). Considering the price is not usually so high (at least in the states), it might still be worth a try to see if it works for your skintone. I think it would look AMAZING on warm tones.

I LOVE this lip butter, my favourite one I have tried. You can wear it as a very casual red lip as its not too 'in your face'. Its super moisturising and stays on for a long time. Would definitely recommend it!

Of the five Lip Butters I've tried, Candy Apple has my favorite formula by far. No shimmer or glitter, just a soft shine. It's the only Lip Butter I would actually call moisturizing, and it has an unusual jelly-like glow that's very flattering to my dry lips. Being cool-toned, I tend to avoid orange-reds, but Candy Apple is an exception to my "no orange" rule. Because of its sheerness, it looks surprisingly natural when worn; I can build it up to near-opacity with two or three coats, but it never looks harsh or garish. I find that it wears for two or three hours if I don't eat anything, and it stains very lightly when it wears off, but it doesn't have the longevity or staying power of a regular lipstick. That's fine with me; it doesn't claim to be a long-lasting lip product, and I don't mind reapplying now and again. Overall, Candy Apple is a really superior lip product, especially for the price.

I've tried all the red variations of the Revlon Lip Butters (except for Red Velvet) and this one is my favorite. I've already run out of mine and immediately repurchased. Here's a comparison:

Cherry Tart - This shade is a cooler red with a noticeable hint of shimmer. Candy Apple is straight-up cream.

Wild Watermelon - This shade is more coral and more pink compared to Candy Apple's warm orangey red.

Raspberry Pie - The formulation and pigmentation is very similar, but of course, Raspberry Pie is a totally different hue as it leans more purple/orchid.

I probably won't be complaining about the price if I lived in the US, but the mark-up for this is pretty high where I live. It can for around USD$12.00
