Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter Candy Apple

Are you tired of all my Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter reviews? I am very tired of them myself. There's nothing I hate more than repetitiveness. But it snowed yesterday & I really wanted to click photos of a red lipstick against the white backdrop. I didn't want the photos to go to waste (like many many others), so I decided to post these quickly before I go do something in the snow again (omigosh, it's starting to melt!)
I promise. Last Revlon Lip Butter. NO MORE. 
If you're a regular reader of my blog, you'll know that this was sort of a impulse buy. A purchase just to get one FREE Revlon nail polish (post here). Hence, it's not something I really wanted to try out. But it didn't disappoint.
Shade: Candy Apple is a dragonfly red. How I thought of that name is because I used to have a very similar Maybelline Watershine lipstick called Dragonfly Red, which I used to love. When applied sheer, it looks a little like The Body Shop Strawberry Born Lippy lip balm too.
Wear: It starts to wear off after an hour and a half & leaves behind a very subtle red tint when it bids your lips goodbye.
Scent: It's unscented & doesn't doesn't smell sweet (like candy apples, perhaps)
If Pink Truffle is a mlbb nude-ish everyday color, then Candy Apple is a nice juicy red that you could wear if you want to draw attention to your lips.
Revlon Candy Apple Swatches ~ Sheer, heavy

Price ~ Right now £5 (Rs.438) at Boots & Superdrug   |   India: Rs.600
My Rating ~ ♥♥♥♥4/5

Is Candy Apple your type of lip color?

  2. Lovely pictures Cynthia! I don't get tired of the Revlon CB lip butters, I have 4 myself and I'm eyeing 2 more, love the buttery formula!

    Candy Apple looks much warmer on me, maybe its the lack of sun on your end that's giving a cooler look (like Cherry Tart from the same range!).

  13. This shade is absolutely stunning, although I am not a fan of these products since they are not moisturizing enough for something called "butter".

  17. I don't get tired of lip butter reviews, I like most of the ones I tried a lot, and wear them even just like lip balm (but prettier!) ^_^ I haven't gotten this one yet, but it looks like a good shade of red.

  20. I bought this one and the tutti frutti shade too. My candy apple melted in the heat one hot afternoon and I transferred it to an old lip balm jar and also mixed it with some biotique lip balm. I now have a brand new coral-ish colour!

    1. Oww that's the thing about them- too soft & melty. Great idea to mix those two together! I can imagine the gorgeous color :)

  22. I own four Lip Butters now - Tutti Frutti, Candy Apple, Berry Smoothie and Raspberry Pie. Tutti Frutti (it's a nice coral shade) was the first one I bought, I was looking for Lip Butters everywhere, and when I finally found it at the sixth store I literally shrieked with joy. :D Second was Candy Apple (I just love red, I have a lot of red clothing, pus appes are my favorite fruit). The first few times I wore Candy Apple it looked RED, and now it looks pink :( Berry Smoothie I bought just because I needed some pink (I owned no pink lipsticks till then) and Raspberry Pie was a gift (shame it's the same as Revlon Superlustrous Cherries In The Snow which I bought the previous day- I should have waited till the next day!!).

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
