Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Red Velvet

I've been on a couple different missions lately, one of which is to find the perfect sheer red lippy.  Revlon Lip Butter in Red Velvet isn't it, but it has become my favorite go-to, every day red.


 I just love the quilted packaging on these things.


Obvi, I've used this a few times :) The Lip Butters are great because of how moisturizing they are.  I've been using a couple of the lighter shades off and on for the past year and my only issue is the longevity, but Red Velvet doesn't have that problem-- maybe because of the red pigmentation.  It's super moisturizing AND long lasting-- a red I don't need to wear balm underneath.  Beautiful.



Red Velvet is a darker, bluer leaning shade of red with an ever-so-slight provocation towards brick.  It's a great, wearable daytime red because it is very slightly sheer with a touch of gloss.  It does require reapplication throughout the day, but as the glossiness fades from each wear, it leaves lips with the prettiest stain.  Application is great.  I've learned to use a clear pencil under all my reds, but as I reapply this during the day, I don't keep up with the liner and I don't get any bleeding.  It's the most perfect, low maintenance red I've tried.  It makes me want to put a gigantic dollop of cream cheese frosting on it and take a bite, too.

 So, the mission continues for a nice, sheer red but I'm stoked to have Red Velvet in my life ♥
What about you?  Got any favorite Lip Butters?  or a rec for a sheer red?

Thanks for reading!

    1. Oh, I hope you do! I've had a lipstick in a nice shade of red for years, but I don't wear it a ton because it does feel so high maintenance. This one, though, truly is red lippy gold, lol :D

  6. I love this colour! I have never tried lipsticks from Revlon before though. Maybe you could try something like Dior addict or Chanel rouge coco shine lipsticks. They ARE expensive but I'm pretty sure they carry sheer reds :)

    1. I've never tried a Dior lippy! I've worn and loved a couple different Chanel colors, though. There's actually a NARS shade that might be it.

  8. This didn't occur to me until I was driving home. I have a sheer red lippy recommendation. Baby Lips in the Cherry scent/flavor. I love that one and have gone through 2 tubes. It doesn't last very long, but it's a sheer red wash of color.

  9. Hot pics sis!!! Totally classy and reminiscent of what I associate with twenties/thirties reds!!!!! I rarely wear anything but lip balm since years but if I use any it is either gloss or lipstick by Diane Brill. After all those years they're still my favs!!! Great post!!! xxx

  12. As a redhead, red lippies scare the heck outta me. This looks amazing on you! I love it after the gloss has worn off some.

    1. Aww, Sara, don't be scared! ;) There's a shade for everyone. It's funny, I didn't become fully comfortable with them, myself, until I started coloring my hair, now I seriously love them all and am amassing quite a collection, lol.
