I was blog hopping around and I saw a post by fellow blogger, Laura stating that she recently bought hers over at Watson's not too long ago. I was at first in shocked/in denial that Malaysia has finally brought it to the shelves. Every weekend over the past month, I have been eyeing every Revlon counter for the Colorburst Lip Butter lipsticks and there was never a sight of it. Not until I read her post that I found out it is now finally being sold in Malaysia, and so, off I go to grab them at the nearest drugstore!
The feeling of finally having it was as though a kid is finally being rewarded a tube of Choki-Choki after finishing up her broccoli, so rewarding! (Please tell me you remember what in the world is a 'Choki-Choki'… or I should chokey-chokey you! >.< ) Anyway, I remember those times I almost gave up waiting on the Lip Butters to arrive to just purchase the ColorBurst range instead but I guess, good things do come to those who wait a tad bit longer. ;) Also, the Lip Butters are cheaper compared to the Colorburst range (RM32+).
So I've gotten two different colors which I find best suited for my skin tone from Watson's, Sunway Pyramid. One is the 025 Peach Parfait, which is a more nude orange/peach with mild sparkles, suitable for daily wear. And the other is the 080 Strawberry Shortcake, a super adorable baby pink shade that will light up anyone's lips. My only choice, at first was the Peach Parfait because I find it as the easiest shade to wear but after testing out the Strawberry Shortcake, immediate love for the beautiful color and now, it is my favorite instead! :P
What is it & What is it for?
As described in the pamphlet: A softening, smoothing and hydrating balm for baby soft, healthy glowing lips. As it gives color to your lips, it also acts as a moisturizing agent for it contains a combination of Mango, Shea and Coconut butter to naturally soothe your lips. I wouldn't say it acted as a moisturizing agent but it sure is more moisturizing compared to other lipsticks. Love it for the color, not because it is said to moisturize because there are lip balms for that purpose.
Creamy and smooth application on the lips. I would go for two/three swipes across to truly project the color because my single swipe didn't seem as pigmented as it looked on other reviews. Maybe after a couple more usage, then it would show its magic?
Usually, lipsticks tend to smell horrible/rubber-ish, especially the more pigmented colored ones as it contains more chemicals. However, to my surprise, the Lip Butters come with a hint of Vanilla scent, and with that added plus point, I can say my love towards this range of lipsticks is doubled up! Each and every tube is naturally fragrant with Vanilla Absolute. Look pretty, smell yummy :3
Tasteless, just the way it should actually be if you want it safe.
I love how the metal-lookalike body of the Lip Butters look so sleek and chic! The cover however is made out of plastic, which explains the lightness of each tube. Nonetheless, it looks pretty and more individualistic as different shades of the Lip Butters are assigned to different colored covers. This will benefit those who wish to purchase a wider range of colors as you won't need to open up the cap to check which color is which or turn it around to check the name/code. Besides that, Laura pointed out a really good detail on this lipstick packaging, it's 'window'. Like she mentioned, from the small clear plastic 'window' at the top of the cover, you will be able to identify the color as well. However do note that you might want to take extra precaution to not drop your tube of Lip Butter as it seemed pretty fragile due to its plastic cover.

Selling at RM25 over at Watson's, (Guardian: RM24+), I think it is a pretty awesome buy! Among other good range of lipsticks, the starting prices are usually RM30 and above each tube. Although Guardian sells it slightly cheaper by a few cents, I bought mine at Watson's instead as I could collect points to the member card!
Good: Smooth & creamy application, Vanilla scent, Affordable pricing, Light-weighted, easy removal, lips still remained moisturized even after long hours of wearing.
Bad: Fragile body, Limited range of colors in Malaysia (Only 8 made available! >.<), chapped lips probably needs pre-application of lip balm or the cracks will show, needs reapplication after 2/3 hrs.
All in all, still lovin' them! I believe I have never had this much of excitement over lip products, except for these lovely range. :)
