Pink truffle is my fav shade. It gives colour like a lipstick but not heavy and it's moisturizing which I like. No lip liner or gloss needed

I just got to know these and already they're discontinued? Quite a bummer, but not really. I got Berry Smoothie and Cherry Tart both on clearance. Frankly if these were full price, I wouldn't have bought them. They only have 2.5 gram of product in each, which is a bit more than half of a regular lipstick (4.5 gram, some stinkier ones are 3.5). And even though I do enjoy them, to be brutally honest, besides the beautiful packaging with the corresponding caps and checkered pattern aside, they are basically glorified tinted lip balms with a lot more shine and some with shimmers. They're very buttery (hence the name), very comfortable and moisturising on the lips, and I'm speaking as a person who cannot live a second without lip balm. The colour is really sheer, some deeper shades certainly pack on more pigment but the lighter shades hardly even show up. Berry Smoothie is one those lighter one, it's basically the colour of my lips but pinkier and slightly mauvy. It is my lips but slightly better but still not enough to register as I'm wearing lipstick kind of thing. It's not possible build up the colour because this formula slips around, and that's what I dislike the most about it. I have more pigmented tinted lip balms from the Baby Lips line from Maybelline, they apply not as buttery but they stay in place and don't go on unexpected business trips around my lips and over my lip line. This is one those lipsticks that does gather in the inner rim of your lips to nasty line, not a cute look at all. I also have to wipe my lips completely dry and clean if I even dare hope this thing sticks, because they wear off very very easily. Even with a darker, pigmented colour like Cherry Tart, I can see the bright punchy red shade fade off right in front of my eyes within 30 minutes of wear, and I did nothing but smacking my lips together from time to time. Eating and drinking anything and you can say goodbye to your lip colour. Since they wear off easily, you'd have to reapply very often, and the tube will run out, fast, since there's not much product in there at all. The shine of the lip is really brilliant, I gotta give them that, it makes your lips look really full, plump and healthy. They both have shimmer in them, Cherry Tart's not as obviously sparkly, but Berry Smoothies has very noticeable shimmer in it, and when the colour fades, the shimmer stays, and this is a very common problem I have with any Revlon lipstick that has shimmer (like the Pearl finish from the Super Lustrous line, they're just atrocious) in them. Fortunately the shimmer doesn't settle into the lip lines, but it's still really strange to have specks of glitter on your lips.
And that's why even though I will enjoy them while they last, I won't repurchase. The colour range is really amazing, but when it wears off so fast and for that price? I'm not willing to shell out that much for 30 minutes of buttery lips. If you want a tinted lip balm, get a Baby Lips I mention earlier. If you can't part with the smoothing and soft feeling they leave on your lips, get a Butter Gloss or for more opaque colours, an Intense Butter gloss from NYX. I swear even those glosses stay on my lips longer than this. I won't miss these terribly when they're gone.

I have three of these: red velvet, berry smoothie and candy apple. It's light, just the right amount of shine and moisturizing. My only problem that it tends to be too soft that it would kinda "mush" (so you have to keep it in the ref) and the cap breaks easily.

Why is there not a "maybe" purchase again button? These are great lipstick/balms. I have cotton candy and peach parfait. I researched what colors I thought I would like quite a bit before ordering and I like both colors. BUT, my lips are more pigmented than the swatches I looked at so the peach is real dark and the cotton candy barely shows up. 😡 So I will have to do some work to get these to really look good and I was really hoping just to be able to slap these on....I will either have to conceal my lips to get good color or put down a base color. I'm annoyed by that but hey...can't complain that my face isn't all one color. I have berry pink lips.

I own juicy papaya, candy apple, and berry smoothie. Make sure your lips are not dry before putting these on because they will settle funny.

I own 5 shades of these lip butters. I have Berry Smoothie, Candy Apple, Cupcake, Peach Parfait and Juicy Papaya. I've been using these for a few years now and I still love them. I feel like these look good on and feel good on. They are also pretty affordable and I like how each shade is named after desserts/food. I also like the packaging on these. I feel like there is definitely a shade for everyone because they offer so many. Overall, these are really good lip butters and I would recommend them to anyone.

I own four of these in the shades Berry Smoothie, Peach Parfait, Pink Truffle and Cherry Tart. I used to love these and kind of forgot about them for a little while but I was searching high and low for a semi-sheer yet moisturizing lipstick and I remembered I already had some! These do not dry out my lips and are not too opaque or too sheer, some do have mild glitter but only in the Peach Parfait do I find it noticeable on the lips. They do not have a very long wear time, especially if you eat or drink, but I find that moisturizing or glossy lip products usually don't so I didn't really expect them to. My only real gripe with these is the packaging. In all four of the ones I own whenever I twist the lipstick down after use it scrapes the lipstick and leaves a glob of gooey lipstick allover the rim. Also these all eventually have stopped twisting down properly after not that many uses and then I have to push it down manually. These would be near perfect if the packaging was improved! Not bad bang for your buck though and my favourite shade is Cherry Tart.

These are nice lippies for your normal makeup routine whether you do full glam or just a lazy day to day. They're hydrating and not sticky.

This is a sheer "lipstick." Lip butter it definitely is! It is very creamy and the lasting power is basically like a lipgloss. I like the colors and they look semi-natural. Typically, I have to reapply about every hour or so. That's too much, in my opinion, for a lipstick type product. I'm not really sure what Revlon was aiming at with this. It preforms like a sheer gloss, but is marketed and packaged like a lipstick. It's good for a quick lip color or touch ups, but I guess I am looking for something more permanent or long lasting. Overall, these are okay and I will continue to use it for quick, every day color.

I just looked at the Google Trends for "Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter". This product burst on the scene in late 2011, peaking in January 2012. Now, four years later, I'm getting around to writing a review. This fits perfectly with my usual late-majority / laggard status, when it comes to any technology, or apparently, beauty product.

After reading on a couple of blogs that the "Fig Jam" shade was *maybe* like Clinique's famous "Black Honey" shade, I thought about it for a few months, and decided to buy- only to find that "Fig Jam" was discontinued. So was "Red Velvet", another shade that Indian beauty-bloggers had praised. Naturally- I'm sure other MUA ladies can relate to the feeling "this product is awesome (or, potentially awesome), so Corporate Overlords will immediately decide to stop making it. SCORE."

After some digging on Amazon- yay for Prime and free shipping- I found non-exorbitant options, and have purchased a backup for Fig Jam. Starting actual review:

- both shades feel good on the lips upon application
- lips don't feel sticky afterwards
- lips don't feel dry afterwards
- sometimes I put a thin layer of Vaseline first ... or last ... or both; haven't figured out a "best practice"
- if I can refrain from rubbing my lips (er, against each other), or, obviously, touching them with a finger, the color seems to last between 1-2 hours
- pleasant, dessert-y kind of smell, especially for "Red Velvet"
- no problem with color bleeding outside my lips altogether, or collecting unevenly on my lips
- "Red Velvet" is probably the first lip color I've EVER worn where it is immediately obvious that I have something on. Otherwise I always go for the color option that doesn't look like I have anything on.
- I use a mirror when applying these, especially the highly-pigmented "Red Velvet". It's a change from my usual Vaseline or Chapstick, which I apply with a heavy hand. These are quite colorful, so I can't just swipe the tube around (and around and around), without checking what I'm doing.
- at this point, in my 30s, I probably wear some kind of color on my lips ... 3-12 times a year. Yeah, not very frequently! So, I haven't really figured out what application frequency works for me, during the course of an evening. For New Year's Eve (2015), I wore Red Velvet, then a coat of Fig Jam, then Vaseline. Looking at photos, the color had definitely faded after a couple of hours (and, um, lots of hors d'oeuvres), but you can tell I had *something* on, since my lips look, well, shiny. Good enough for me!

I guess I'll continue to have fun with these for parties ... and maybe date nights. Husband doesn't like lipstick, associating it with aunties who insisted on cheek-kisses, so I've always been grateful at not having to bother. But, well, since everyone else wears it, maybe I can try starting off the night with some color.
