First Impressions: Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter

My lip junkie hoarder came out today when I saw the new Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter display at my local CVS. After reading so many raving reviews about the product, I just had to get my hands on them. Luckily, there was a BoGo half off sale so I didn't have to pay full price. I also had a CVS coupon for three bucks. Honestly, I wanted to get all of them, but I agonized at the display for at least ten minutes before settling on six. 

I didn't want to do a review post since I haven't had them long enough to actually give a full and valid review so this is more of a "first impressions" post. Looking at these lip butters, they remind me of the Dior lip balms. I've never tried the Dior balms to give you a comparison but they look very similar. What else can I say about these? They apply smoothly onto your lips and do feel moisturizing. The neutral shades are more sheer compared to the darker and more pigmented shades. For example, Sugar Coating is a sheer lilac pink that provides a nice sheen with some sparkle. Lollipop on the other hand is very pigmented and opaque. 

The packaging is nice, being somewhat similar to the original Colorburst packaging. The lipstick covers match the shade of the lip butter but still retain the aesthetically pleasing quilt patterns. Another plus about these lip butters is the fact that they swivel down all the way. I don't know about you, but I hate when I nick lipsticks with the cap because the product doesn't go all the way into the tube.

These lip butters retail anywhere between seven to nine dollars depending on where you buy it. At my CVS they were $7.49. If you can't get your hands on these right now, Revlon has stated these will be part of the permanent line launching in January 2012. There will additional shades as well.

Have any of you girls tried these? What are your thoughts? 

Also Happy Halloween!!!


I Feel Spark-tacular!

I love painting my nails, it's therapeutic for me. I'm currently in love sparkly topcoats and fell in love with Spark-tacular. I heard this topcoat is a possible dupe for OPI's Rainbow Connection from the Muppet collection.

Hope everyone has been well, us east coast people got our first snow storm! Crazy right? I just hope this isn't a prelude to what winter is going to be like!

Make Me Your Radio

I have been going back and forth on whether or not to buy the Monster Beats Solo headphones. I finally bit the bullet and got them today. Soooo glad I did! They are so comfortable and just flat out sexy.

Hope you all are well ^.^


Inglot Love

Went to Garden State Mall today and was ecstatic there is an Inglot there. Another thing I was excited about? It was empty! Ok, let me explain. The mall was extremely packed, but the wing Inglot was located in was empty. So I did a little happy dance and browsed the store without anyone cutting in front of me, getting in my way or screaming in my ear.

I only got a few things: two lipglosses, a lipstick and their cream concealer. I already love the smoothness and scent of the lipstick and I'm definitely a fan of their shadows. I can't wait to try the concealer.

Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend! :)

NoTD: Facets of Fuschia

Totally in love with this polish. It's supposed to be a dupe for Deborah Lippmann's Bad Romance. It's a limited edition color so hurry to your drugstore to get it!!
