I was at Watsons last week when I first saw that there were four new shades of Revlon lip butters being released. I was pretty sure I didn't have Tutti Frutti, but I wanted to go home to check first to be 100% sure before buying it. Besides, I thought to myself that I should be waiting for a sale to come. Sure enough, a Watsons member sale took place last Wednesday, and I hauled a couple of the new lip butters on that day. Usual retail price is $15.90, and after the 25% + 5% discount, I think it came down to ~$11.30 each.
I bought Tutti Frutti and Sugar Frosting.
What I like about the sheerer shades of the lip butters is that I can easily apply them on the go for a hint of colour and shine, without being too careful about painting beyond my natural lip line and looking like a mess.
Check out the swatches for other shades of lip butters here.

This will be the last swatch post of the Revlon Lip Butters that I have. These were bought from a Drugstore.com spree, except for Peach Parfait which was bought locally.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I am just gonna say that I love the Revlon lip butters. I picked another four last week at Metro at 20% off the retail price. (Promotion is still ongoing 'til 19th Feb). Unfortunately the outlet I was at didn't have Peach Parfait in stock, so it's the only one I'm missing.
Revlon Colorburst Lip butter contains a combination of mango, shea and coconut butter to naturally soothe lips and boost lip moisture by 156%.

I think that by now, all of you have seen, read about and probably already bought these lip butters from Revlon.
I bought these whilst in Hong Kong last month during the Chinese New Year week. At that time, the Revlon lip butters had not launched in Singapore yet. And so, just like in Bangkok (haul post here), I ended up choosing shades that I was comfortable with, and not necessarily shades that would not be available here since I didn't know which shades would be launched locally. Out of these three, only one can't be found here, and that's Berry Smoothie.
I love how these are so smooth and silky on the lips. They are kinda sheer, but still provide a nice touch of colour. I can't tell how long they last though, because I tend to remove lipstick before eating my meals. So on a typical week day, I would wear lipstick from the time I leave my house for work as it's the last piece of makeup I apply and that's around 8am, til it's time to eat breakfast which is around 9am for me. And the thing is I don't usually re-apply throughout the day.
My lip butter stash stands at 5. I wanna get Peach Parfait next.

I chanced upon these Revlon lip butters whilst in Bangkok. There was a promo of buy 1 and get the second same item at 50% off on that day. So I bought these. The original retail price is 249 Baht each. That's about SGD10 each, which is already pretty cheap. With the promo, it averages out to SGD7.50 each. Fab deal!
There were other colours which looked really bright, so I didn't even consider them. I didn't have time to swatch them all cos I was in a rush. Also, when you have your other half standing right beside you, it's pretty stressful buying makeup cos he thinks that you already have TOO MUCH makeup at home. So I grabbed my kind of colours and that was it. Have not worn them out yet. I just opened them last night and created a dent in one of them. I always seem to be able to do that with new lipsticks.
There's a very very faint sweet smell to them. Colour looks sheer but is buildable on lips. They feel as smooth as they look. Macaroon contains some subtle shimmer.
