Drugstore Beauty Love: Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter Review & a few other things

It’s no secret I big puffy heart makeup. I have my go-to products for everyday wear, but once in a while I just need to mix it up a little. Thankfully, since there are so many awesome products available in drugstores, you don’t have to spend a ton to get a ton.

One of my favorite drugstore brands is Revlon. Their nail polish and lip glosses are my favorites, but really, all the products I’ve ever tried have been nothing short of amazing (and inexpensive and I know it’s tacky to talk about money, but we all love a good deal, don’t lie).

A few months ago, a new line of lipstick came out called the Lip Butters and everyone talking about them. Everyone, meaning, the beauty junkies on Youtube I stalk during nap time. Some of the girls love them, some don’t. Personally, I’m a huge fan. They glide on so smoothly and the colors are fantastic.

(And look! Emma Stone! How could you NOT like that girl??)

The other day at Target, I picked up a few things because I had some coupons:

(Yes, our new place has a pink bathroom. Maddie and her cousins love it.)

Normally, I don’t stray from the few foundations I know and love. BUT, this Photoready Airbrush stuff got me with it’s name. I tried it this morning, along with the 3D Volume mascara and Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake. UMM. AMAZING. All of them.

I’m no beauty blogger, but dude. Listen to me. Go get your hands on those Lip Butters if you haven’t already. I’m going back and snatching up the other shades as soon as I can get these two dressed and out the door.

So, who’s a fan of drugstore beauty brands? Anything I should try?

  1. I LOVE THE LIP BUTTERS. I got mine in a reddish color (the name of which escapes me now) and I LOVE it.

    What color eyeshadow are you wearing in that pic? It’s GORGEOUS.

  2. You’re so skinny I want to kill myself. And your skin is flawless. And you look amazing. AND THAT TOP IS OUT OF CONTROL. I’m just….really….I mean. Bravo!

  3. Sarah Lena: There’s a coral one I want to get too! Tutti Frutti, I think. And thank you! I’m wearing a few of the pink and purple shades from the large E.L.F. palette (also from Target, $10).

    LAUREN, STOPPIT. I’m the one that went through your twitter photo timeline and then had to go fix my hair because I felt like a frumpface. xoxo

  4. so i am a blog stalker coming out of the closet because i must ask: what blush are you wearing! i LOVE it! your makeup looks beautiful :)

  5. Revlon also makes the world’s best eyelash curler! It’s black and that’s all I remember, eek sorry!

  6. I was wondering how that Lip Butter stuff was. Now I totally have to pick one up next time I’m shopping. But what color to choose? Decisions, decisions.

  7. It took forever for the Revlon lip butters to find their way to my home, mostly because every store I went to didn’t have them, until this weekend! Mine is in creme brulee, but I will go back and get more… I love revlon lipsticks!

  8. britt: Yay!! Thank you for saying hi! My blush is CoverGirl’s Rose Silk. xoxo

    Becca: I LOVE CREME BRULEE. That was my first one that had me hooked!

  9. I love make-up but I’ve always been scared of lipstick. I keep hearing about these lip butters, so I think I need to get over it and try more color.

    I just pinned that mascara because I heard great things. My go-to drugstore favorite is Lashblast mascara, in the orange tube. I will cry if they ever discontinue it.

    (Umm, I’m scared of lipstick and I cry over mascara…. that’s normal, right?)

  10. LOVE lip butters. I only own one and I feel like that is a huge shame. Sugar Frosting, it’s amazing. Um, and please share your fave YouTube beautes por favor. It one of my latest addictions watching them all the time and then coveting products I can’t afford haha.

  11. I was wondering about that mascara…
    I am on the hunt for a new fav (inexpensive) mascara. My maxfactor has been discontinued and I have yet to find an adequate relpacment.

  12. OMG I love the lip butters too! They are perfect for me because I don’t usually wear lipstick and hate the heavy feel of other lipsticks but I love the lip butters.

    I recently tried the Wet N Wild Megalash Clinical and am loving it. Perfect mascara for every day use. And I tried their Silent Treatment eye shadow palate and was quite impressed.

    Also, have you tried the Maybelline Color Tattoo eyeshadows? They are awesome.

  13. Gorgeous! I love that shade on you. I have to try it! I usually stick with cover girl lipstick and I have this funfunfun hot pink shade my husband bought but I’ve been wanting to branch out. And I stick with the same foundation because my skin can be kind of oily but revlon is the only foundation I’ve found that doesn’t make me look like I dipped my face in a deep fat fryer at the end of the day. Sometimes its just not pretty. Also, I have a pink bathroom, too. Mine is hideous. Army green and pink and a few random maroon tiles. I cannot wait to tear it down!

  14. I used to wear clinique back when my dad payed for my make up but now I use maybelline dream foundation. It’s the only one I’ve found so far that keeps my oily skin in check but this one you bought sounds very enticing.

  15. Do you like how my reply had nothing really do do with your post? Whoops. I think I’m gonna try that lipstick, however, does it get all dry feely (that’s why I never wear lipstick)?

  16. Ok, but fur rillz how did you like the foundation?? I get really nervous when changing pretty much my most important piece of makeup. But once I saw Emma stone (my lover) in the commercial I was hooked. And I’m getting the lip butters. And cover girl rose silk blush. And I’m changing my name to Morgan.

  17. Amy: They’re out of stock in a lot of stores (ULTA, ahem). And thank you, I love your face!

    Elizabeth P: TOTALLY normal. :)

    Caitlyn: That’s a good post idea, the Youtube beauty girls. I’ll get on it!

    Lindsey: The Falsies by Maybelline is a good one too!

    Brandi: I’ll have to check out Color Tattoo… sounds like something I’d like!

    Alyssa: lol, MINE. And no, it doesn’t get dry at all. I hate that too!

    Erin: ooooh my gosh, stop! lol, you’re hilarious. I really like the foundation! It comes out kind of foamy and has great coverage.

  18. Oooh, I haven’t tried these but now I’ll have to- especially after SO many people have raved about them just in the comments!

    I haven’t gotten much new in the way of makeup yet… but I did get a new nail polish yesterday that I ADORE and intend on getting all the colors in the line. It’s the newish Sally Hanson Gem Crush colors- I think there’s 8? It’s basically microglitter and then another color small glitter in it. 2 coats and my nails are pure glitter, and I love it. I got the purple but I’ll slowly get them all :)

  19. gorgeous, Morgan!!! you look so lovely!
    I’ve actually been needing new lip stuff aaaand I’m going to Target tonight, so now I know what I’ll be getting :)
    my fav drugstore makeup is the falsies mascara by maybelline; it’s the only mascara I’ve used consistently now in a long time, because I just love it so much!
    as for foundation and things like that, my face is the face of a broken-out 14-year-old, with the oil production of a small middle eastern nation (especially now, being pregnant. oh my. THE ZITS.) SO. I just haven’t found that the cheaper brands of foundation work for me, as they somehow tend to make the problem worse. sad face. What I wouldn’t give for nice skin! :)
    thanks for sharing your super find with us!

  20. Cover girl “rose silk” blush makes me so happy. It was the first thing my mother ever let me try out of her make-up and it was for the fifth grade graduation. I can still remember how it made me feel. The smell evokes great memories… Like baby powder deodorant….makes me feel like it is my first time applying deodorant. Of course I had moved on to the taboo “orgasm” blush, but checked out the old CG section looking for that little jewel for my 9 yr old daughter and sure enough it was still there :)

  21. lip butters are the most amazing thing EVER. i have pink truffle, berry smoothie and sweet tart…LOOOOOVE. obsessed. i always get compliments.

    the revlon colorburst glosses are also amazing.

    and i am currently obsessed with green apple chapstick. cuz i’m secretly 12.

  22. Your make up looks amazing. I also love Revlon lipsticks and eye shadows. The New “once upon a time” range is gorgeous. all glittery and dark. I love Yardley Extra lengthening mascara (It’s my all time fav mascara)

  23. I’m pretty sure we are destined to be best friends. A. You are ridiculously good looking, and B. I also have a pink bathroom! My house was built in the 60’s and so we have the pink bathroom and a mint green bathroom! Groovy, right? Anyway, I’ve never tried the lip butters but I read on another blog that they were amazing as well, guess I’ll have to try it out. Another drugstore buy I love is Maybelline’s Falsies Volum’ Express. That mascara rocks my socks off and gives tons of length and volume. Thanks for the great post!

  24. OMG, I totally just went back to the comments and saw that you suggested another reader try the Falsies mascara, which means you already love it, which means that you are BEYOND meant to be my best friend! Yay! Lol!

  25. I have been on the hunt for a good foundation FOREVER!!!!! I just saw this commercial the other night and thought it was crazy looking…the foaminess of it! But you look freaking gorgeous so I might have to give the crazy foamy foundation a try!! ;-)

    And all the rave about this mascara – I’m intrigued! I have been using Mary Kay mascara for years because it used to be great and now its just good, but I’ve never switched b/c old habits die hard, right?!

    THANK YOU for blogging about make-up! I contantly ask people at work and such about what foundation they wear and I’m guessing they think I’m crazy! :)

  26. I’ve been meaning to get a new foundation, but since I never wear it (I’m more of a tinted moisturizer/powder kind of girl) I usually don’t even know where to start! I had to go to target anyways so I picked up the Revlon foundation AND a tube of Lip Butter in Peach parfait. My sister got one too in a berry color. We love how smooth it is. Great find for sure!

    And on my next date night, I’ll be bringing out the foundation. Thanks for the tips! :)

  27. So, I’m not so great at wearing making up – we don’t get along quite well – but I like buying it :) This has inspired me to try and wear lipstick. So far, I’ve worked my way up to tinted lip gloss (thanks, burt’s bees). And I started following you on Pinterest, because really… where have I been?? Just thought I’d let you know in case you’re like uh, who’s brandy or uh, who’s poodlegoose? :)

  28. Sooo… it’s almost 2 in the morning and I’m up waiting to see if the new batteries I put in the 2 smoke detectors down the hall worked (WHY ON EARTH do they have to go always go off in the middle of the night!!!!). I am totally about to go jump in the car and head to the store to buy me some lip butter. And some new batteries if need be… :)

  29. I too am a drugstore beauty junkie!! The Revlon lip butters are amazing and Emma Stone is a perfect poster girl! I was in CVS one day and walked past a display with two lip butters on it. The colors were not out yet but they had a couple in stores for a trial. I bought both and took them home….loved them! I started searching for more and couldn’t find any Lip Butters in any drugstore, not anywhere. WTH?! Just recently I started seeing the really cute commercials on tv…Yay! I was at the drugstore a couple of days later! I don usually do hails because I’m like a bargain and consider myself thrifty…but I indulged and scooped up 13 colors! I’m a MUA so I can kinda rationalize :-)
    Great blog Mrs. Priss, I totally dig it! I need to be more devoted to my own blog life.

    Kisses and Cupcakes!

  30. BTW. Creme Brulée is THE BEST! That was the first one I found and I’m looking for another just incase I run out. I have constant makeup anxiety…I’m always worried the day will come that my favorites will be discontinued -__-
    And now I will stop OVERcommenting!

  31. super blog creep here. just popping out of hiding to say you are looking so lovely! and i don’t think it’s the makeup doing all the talking. you just look very happy and vibrant. just thought you should know <3

  32. Clearly, great minds think alike because I blogged about some of my beauty faves today, too. But, lip butter? Judging by the responses to this post, I am missing out! My go-to drugstore pics are Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick in Iced Amethyst and good old-fashioned ChapStick. Exciting, I know. When I decide to splurge a bit, I head for Bare Escentuals.

  33. Ooook I was trying to avoid going to Target this week..but now I have to go and try these! I love Emma and that freakin commercial gets me excited to go buy some! Thanks for cementing my need to go get this! :)


  34. I’m new to your blog, not even sure how I found it, but this is the first article I stopped to read and I LOVED it!! I literally ran to get my notepad that I keep in my purse to make notes of all the things you mentioned (even the blush!). Thanks for the great finds, I’m a stay at home mom to a 2 yr old and a also a makeup junkie but I’ve found my Sephora/Mac addiction to be too costly to the budget. Thank you for the GREAT realistic finds! ;) I’ll definitely be back!!

  35. I cannot get my hands on these lip butters. Makes my heart so sad. I keep looking in all the places around me and they are all sold out. I will keep up the hunting though. Feel free to check me out and follow if you like.
