This is the 2nd installment of my review of Revlon Color Burst Lip Butters.  In this post, I’ll focus on Tutti Frutti.  To see my first review, you can go here.


The picture above of Tutti Frutti was taken from Revlon.com

Tutti Frutti is on the right

Below is a swatch of it on my hand.  I’m proud to report that Tutti Frutti is true to it’s color in the tube.  I swatched it twice.

Here I am wearing it on my lips below

I’m pleased to say that I’m in love with Tutti Frutti Lip Butter.

I mentioned in part 1 that my lips felt instantly hydrated with Gumdrop and it’s the same with Tutti Frutti.  The color payoff is great and is just what I wanted.  There’s no strong fragrance so that’s a MAJOR plus.  The Lip Butters have a lot of moisturizing ingredients that do a great job of keeping your lips luscious. Some of them include:  Mango, Shea, and Coconut Butters.  I really like that there are 20 shades to choose from.  At H.E.B., the display unit had the colors separated into warm and cool colors. I’m not sure how the displays look other places.

I will be going back to H.E.B. to purchase at least 2 more of these before the sale ends on 2/21/12.

In case you weren’t aware, Tangerine is the “it” color for 2012 according to Pantone.  This is a very inexpensive way to get your lips conditioned and be in trend at the same time. :-)

H.E.B. Grocery Store has all Revlon Face and Lip products on sale for $3 off!!!

Here’s what they look like.

I’ve heard mixed reviews about this product so I only purchased two of them.  Gumdrop and Tutti Frutti.  This post will focus on Gum Drop.  I’ll review Tutti Frutti in the next post.

There wasn’t as much product in the tube as I’d hoped. :-(

These remind me of Clinique Almost Lipsticks.

 But they feel way better.  When I applied them to my lips, they instantly felt hydrated.  The first swatch was a bit sheer so you will have to apply a few coats to get the color to show.  This is fine with me because I didn’t expect them to be fully pigmented the way I would with a regular lipsick.

The above picture is a swatch of Gumdrop.  From the tube it appears to be a light lilac color but on my skin it comes off as a very sheer blue pink.  I had to swatch this four times before it showed up enough for me to take a picutre.

I don’t see it as a total waste, it just wasn’t what I was expecting.  I didn’t need another pink, I really wanted something closer to purple. Oh well.   I ‘ll still use it.  At least it feels really good on my lips. :-)
