Fans of Revlon Lip Butters, are you in for a treat! 4 new colours are entering the Malaysian market this month in 4 colour families including a very interesting orange. Orange! Tutti Fruitti is a straight orange and ah! I loved the idea of an orange lipstick as much as I loved the idea of an orange lipgloss! icon biggrin Dessert sans calories with new Revlon Lip Butters in Tutti Frutti, Sweet Tart, Berry Smoothie capped with Sugar Frosting

The 4 new colours available here are Berry Smoothie, Sweet Tart, Sugar Frosting and Tutti Frutti. Like the ones we got before, I found that although the Lip Butters are in effect that lipstick-lipbalm hybrid lipstick that is at once sheer yet moisturizing on lips, there are 2 different textures. One is more opaque so you get more colour and less shine and another is more sheer so you get more shine and less colour. The problem is, you just can’t tell by looking at the lipsticks which ones will swatch sheer or opaque!

Let me show you how they look.

Like the regular Lip Butters, the cases are reflective of the colour of the lipstick. The cases are all slightly translucent as per normal. The bit you need to grab to get a hold of the lipstick tube is the black bit that says “Revlon”. I actually find it a bit of a bother sometimes because I tend to grab my lipsticks around the middle of the tube and then I wonder why I can’t get the cover off. So packaging wise, that’s my gripe.

Lipstick wise, I like the way the tube is shaped. I am a fan of the blunt flat lipstick top because it just makes it easier to apply and because of the texture of the lipstick, its alright even if I go a little out of line.

See how the colours match up to the cap? Its a great way to find your lipstick when you are pressed for time because you simply have to glance at the cap to know what colour you are picking. I don’t mind this in a drugstore or pharmacy brand lipstick but I still want my high end lipsticks to sport sleek uniform packaging. Yes, I’m a snob that way icon wink Dessert sans calories with new Revlon Lip Butters in Tutti Frutti, Sweet Tart, Berry Smoothie capped with Sugar Frosting

Have you figured out yet which are sheer and which are more opaque? Here are the swatches to help you along.

revlon lip butter new Dessert sans calories with new Revlon Lip Butters in Tutti Frutti, Sweet Tart, Berry Smoothie capped with Sugar Frosting

(1) Tutti Frutti – orange (2) Sweet Tart (pink) (3) Berry Smoothie (berry) (4) Sugar Frosting (nothing!) All swatched one time

I hope you can see that Tutti Frutti and Sweet Tart are both a little more opaque  in colour. In one swatch, you can see the actual colour of the lipstick. Berry Smoothie and Sugar Frosting are both much sheerer. I was a little disappointed with Berry Smoothie myself because I love berry coloured lipsticks and I would have loved a lip colour like the one in the tube.

Instead what you get is a very sheer hint of colour on your lips. I did grow to eventually like it, but it still disappoints me a little. Sugar Frosting is what I’d call a “Why bother?!” colour. In the tube its a very very light pink. On my hand it looks like nothing, just shine. Oh alright, if we’re really counting, there is a very very very slight hint of pink but for your purposes, it swatches as pretty much nothing, only imparting shine to the lips. You could get the same result by wearing lipbalm and that would be more moisturizing on lips icon razz Dessert sans calories with new Revlon Lip Butters in Tutti Frutti, Sweet Tart, Berry Smoothie capped with Sugar Frosting

Here are the swatches on lips to give you an idea of what they look like when you wear them. No matter how we try, lipstick only really looks good (and is best) applied on lips, not on the back of your hands icon razz Dessert sans calories with new Revlon Lip Butters in Tutti Frutti, Sweet Tart, Berry Smoothie capped with Sugar Frosting

revlon lip butter new4 Dessert sans calories with new Revlon Lip Butters in Tutti Frutti, Sweet Tart, Berry Smoothie capped with Sugar Frosting

(1) Sugar Frosting (2) Tutti Frutti (3) Berry Smoothie (4) Sweet Tart

Personally I’d discount Sugar Frosting because as you can see, it doesn’t show up and I like my lip colours to show up, whether sheer or otherwise. The other 3 colours are nice to wear and nice to have. If you are feeling a bit contrary, get Tutti Frutti. It actually applies a straight orange which is great because I’d never own a straight orange lipstick otherwise! Its not even coral. Its just straight orange and it is only thanks to the natural lip colour that it takes on a slightly pink undertone.

Berry Smoothie is, as I said before a bit of a disappointment but I like wearing it on days when I take the trouble to do my eyes. It gives a hint of berry colour to my lips and brightens up my skintone while looking as “natural” as can be. The sheerness of the texture is, I believe the key to this colour.

Sweet Tart is a bit of a bright pink that I was a little uncertain about initially. I was wondering if it was similar to Strawberry Shortcake that I own but it turns out it isn’t. It however maybe (don’t quote me on this!) very similar to Dior Addict in Diorkiss! I didn’t have time before this to run a side by side swatch but I’ll do it and report back icon wink Dessert sans calories with new Revlon Lip Butters in Tutti Frutti, Sweet Tart, Berry Smoothie capped with Sugar Frosting

In a nutshell

My thoughts on the Revlon Lip Butters have not changed (original review here). I still do not find them moisturizing enough to merit being as good as lipbalms and I still personally prefer the more opaque shade as opposed to the sheerer texture. I do still think they are excellent introductory lipsticks and at the wallet friendly price point, its worth picking up a couple. The texture is still soft and the tips of mine broke off with just 1 swatch but I’ll live with it.

Pros: Affordable, Light balmy texture isn’t heavy on lips, Colours to suit everyone, Colours are fairly pigmented so it is a good way to ease yourself into wearing lipstick

Cons: I found these were not very moisturizing, Texture is a little soft and the lip butter may break

Who will like these: Anyone who wants a light textured lipstick that does not feel heavy on lips, Anyone who prefers a sheer lipstick or who is new to wearing lipstick

Here’s how Sweet Tart looks on me in a full face shot.

Its a surprisingly pretty shade and one I’d definitely suggest you take a look at because it is so sweet! icon biggrin Dessert sans calories with new Revlon Lip Butters in Tutti Frutti, Sweet Tart, Berry Smoothie capped with Sugar Frosting I don’t usually wear pink lipstick but I am surprisingly taken by this one. Sort of glad its so wallet friendly icon biggrin Dessert sans calories with new Revlon Lip Butters in Tutti Frutti, Sweet Tart, Berry Smoothie capped with Sugar Frosting

Are you a fan of the Lip Butters? Which of these 4 new colours are you most taken with?

My favourites from these 4 new shades available here in descending order are Sweet Tart, Berry Smoothie, Tutti Frutti and Sugar Frosting. I ranked Berry Smoothie ahead of Tutti Frutti because I wear it more often icon smile Dessert sans calories with new Revlon Lip Butters in Tutti Frutti, Sweet Tart, Berry Smoothie capped with Sugar Frosting

Berry Smoothie’s my choice. Next will be Tutti Frutti which looks interesting – as something very different. I think I will be taking a walk to Guardian shortly.

They were not out as at Monday but checked the same Guardian today and their shipment arrived had just arrived but not unpacked yet as at lunch time. Got them to open the shipment box and pull out Berry Smoothie for me. No discount on this new item although other Revlon stuff was 10% off. But had to have it and did. Love the shade. *kiss* *kiss*

I think Sweet Tart would be very nice on you :) Tutti Frutti is orange but if you have slightly red lips then it’ll draw on that and turn it coral but not as coral as some of the other Dior ones I featured. Its a bit of a “wear once and rarely thereafter” colour :P

I love Berry Smoothie cos it gives me a MLBB look :) I wanted to like Sweet Tart but it turns out alittle too pink for me on my pigmented/darker tone lips. I am surprised that Sweet Tart is such a nice pink on you and Berry Smoothie doesnt quite suit you lol :) Different strokes for different folks I guess ;)

Hi Paris!

Sorry I’m not writing a comment under the right subject, but i recently came across your post about clarisonic last september? and thought it would never get answered! lol so im writing it under the most recent post…i hope you dont mind :)

same thing happened to me…where i used clarisonic for 5-6 months…actually…with NO problem…–until winter hit, one day, right after the use, my skin became extremely dry and i broke out…
i blame it on clarisonic because it happened right after i used it and it dried my skin out so much, i could see fine lines across my cheek/nose area when i smiled!

also im in my 20s, and i have been lucky enough to never experience one single zit!
i was quite shocked that this would happen, and immediately stopped using clarisonic…
the pimples that clarisonic lasted about 5 months (i didnt get any new ones, but those pimples just wouldn’t leave…and finally this may/june-ish they were all gone…but it left some red marks!)
and i have also realized it gave me clogged pores, which i had never experienced before :(

like you said, im thinking about starting to use clarisonic again but maybe once a week this time…
hoping it would be a ‘saviour’ this time…lol

i wanted to ask you how your skin’s been doing with moderate amount of usage? (i think its almost been a year since you posted that clarisonic post!)

Thanks :)

Hi SCK I don’t use it a lot anymore. In fact, I’ve only used it about once a month ever since I went back to my daily exfoliator (I use the Impress Brightener) So what’s happened to my Clarisonic is that its turned into an expensive white elephant :P

Haha indeed! Its crazy how we all get different stuff but I guess its a marketing thing because not all colours will suit everyone in the demographic. I personally am not sure how the pale shades will work here since with our weather and colouring, most of us will look much better with colour on our lips. But who knows eh? Sweet Tart is surprisingly such a sweet colour – glad you love it too!

Teehee… thanks Sze Ling, I will! :D They aren’t drying on me which is fortunate. But the reason I harped on the moisture factor is because they are meant to be like lipbalms and for me, they aren’t. Dior Addict, now that’s moisturizing. These are almost there but not quite but at those prices, one can’t complain :)

You look lovely with Sweet Tart! I picked the wrong shades of these to begin with (Peach Parfait is just TOO glittery), so I’m a little put off now. I’ve seen some fabulous shades though. If I can find them here I’d probably give it a second chance!
