Review: Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie

I promise these are almost over! Today I'm showing off Berry Smoothie. This is another shade that was a must-have for me when I first started looking at the lip butters.



In the bullet this appears to be a deep berry pink shade but I actually found this to be the sheerest of the four that I picked up, and it ended up being a very soft, flattering colour. It's quite similar to Macaroon but this leans more pink than peach. It doesn't have much shimmer in it either, it's just a very soft pretty sheen.


I definitely think that this shade looks a little glossier than the others but it's still fantastic for every day wear and I think it'll be a lovely shade for Spring. I can see this going beautifully with some pastel coloured clothing and light eye makeup. This felt really lovely and smooth on my lips. The lack of shimmer made this the lightest, smoothest one I've tried so far! Gorgeous formula. I have to say one note on the packaging, I know I've been singing it's praises, but I actually quite dislike the clear window in the top. It's really strange. I  know it's to help see what the shade is and it's a great idea, it's just looks so bizarre to me! I think Macaroon is still my favourite so far. Let's see what the fabulous Raspberry Pie has next time!

What do you think to Berry Smoothie? Are you as surprised as I am about how sheer this is?

Quick Update: This shade can be built up to more of a berry tone with a few layers :)

  1. This is a very pretty colour on you. I'd be disappointed with how sheer is it though, I think that's what's putting me off getting any, I'm more of a bright, bold lip girl myself! xo

    1. To an extent yes, you need a good 3 layers to get it to a nice berry shade. I just dislike having to use so much to get that effect :( x

  7. I'm actually surprised that you find this one sheer!! I have (and adore) Berry Smoothie and find that it has a buildable-medium tint to it... shame you don't feel the same! :(

  8. That's so weird! It looks as though it's going to be a really bold lip, I'm surprised too at just how sheer it is. The colour really suits you though! I only really wear bold colours, I love my reds! X

  9. Berry Smoothie was the first lipbutter I bought. I've found the colour can be built up, but I like that it's sheer enough to never go OTT (I tend to apply them without mirrors like a lipbalm rather than a lipstick)

  19. I bought this at the weekend and really like it, I'm tempted to get Macaroon as well though after your post! It's definitely glossier than I expected, but I like that it's so different to Peach Parfait, which is the other one I have xx
