Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Macaroon


Hello lovelies,

Revlon's Colorburst Lip Butter in Macaroon is a UK exclusive shade, but I was able to procure this gem through ebay.

In comparison to the other lip butters I own, I found macaroon to have a more pronounced shea and coconut scent.


Macaroon is a muted, reddened-guava with tiny gold sparkles. This lip butter is one of the more pigmented of this product range.

The gold sparkles are more apparent in this photo.

A little side note...

Last week, while I was in Ginza, I found a little shop selling the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters... So, yes, Lip Butters are in Japan now. The display only had six shades and they were priced at 1,500 yen ($18.88). I've said this before, and I'll say it again...even drug store makeup is expensive in Japan. Also, drug stores over here never have promo specials (i.e., buy one, get one free or buy one, get one at 50% off) like Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid and other drug stores often do.

I've been wearing Macaroon this week, and I believe it's a pretty color for Spring/Summer. Macaroon is one of the more pigmented lip butter shades and quickly becoming one of my favorites.

Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.

  2. Drugstore makeup is so expensive outside of the US/UK :( This is a really pretty shade, it does look very moisturising, glossy and pigmented!

    1. You're telling me...for a few hundred yen more I may as well buy the high end brands.
