This post is so overdue, I started writing a post about drugstore color balms in January 2012 for my old blog and now years later it’s being discontinued!
Yes, you read that terrible news right, Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters are being discontinued. In fact, the news has been out since earlier this year. However, many stores still have them at full price, while some have them at clearance prices. But either way, you might want to pick up your favorite shades!
I’m a huge fan of emollient lip products. I know, liquid lipstick is all the rage now. But I can’t stand having dry lips. It drives me nuts. I end up applying balm with liquid lipstick because I cannot take the dryness. But a colored balm is just what I need!
My only disappointment with them is that they weren’t scented after their names. With names like Candy Apple, Cotton Candy and Cupcake, you’d hope they would smell like sugary sweet goodness. Nope, smells like nothing. If the reason why Revlon discontinued this line was because they wanted to bring them back with flavors, I would be okay with that. In fact, I’d start the petition!
My favorite of all the colors is Strawberry Shortcake, it’s the perfect pink, and I bought two backups!
I am missing a handful of colors in my collection. I swore I had Gumdrop, but it looks like I don’t. Not that I am on the hunt for them, I just wish I had them to swatch for you. But there are great swatches from KarlaSugar Not all of them are on there because that post was made in 2011, and they since came out with new colors.
I am missing:
(and there may be others that have come out in limited edition collections)
