Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter Lollipop was actually the first ColorBurst Lip Butter that I wanted to try, but the promotional displays were always picked clean. Then, the one tube I found was opened, and I just couldn’t bring myself to buy something that was contaminated. (Eww!)
Of course, when I wasn’t looking for it, I found it at the grocery store…sealed and fresh. So, naturally, it had to jump into my shopping bag. 😉
After purchasing Peach Parfait and Red Velvet, I thought that I would stop there. But, like a lot of fellow beauty lovers out there found out, it’s hard to not want to collect them.
I’m blaming Lollipop for making me obsessed with pink lip colour now! It’s bold, but not too out there. It’s bright, but nowhere near neon. And it’s very wearable.
Let me tell you more about what I thought of this shade.

Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter Lollipop Review
The colour has me swooning like I’m looking at Viggo Mortensen! 😉
The Lollipop ColorBurst Lip Butter by Revlon is a bright, happy pink that brightened my mood at first swipe. Even if the rest of your face is drained of colour, this baby manages to bring you back to life.
I rarely wear bold lip colours. Usually I sport peachy or nude shades…or even just clear lip balm. So this pink was a far departure for me. Instead of going to Niagara Falls, I ended up going to Spain! 🙂
When I first bought this, I wasn’t sure if I’d feel comfortable with such a vibrant shade on my lips, but I got used to it right away. And now I’m pretty obsessed with pink lips. (I’m even going to buy MAC Candy Yum Yum Lipstick, the neon pink, if it gets re-released in the By Request collection. Hope so!)
Is It Moisturizing?
It glides onto your lips nicely and makes your lips feel supple, so yes, it is moisturizing somewhat. But I wouldn’t suggest tossing out your lip balm and replacing it with this.
The Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Lollipop feels more moisturizing than a typical lipstick, but it’s not as hydrating as a good lip balm such as the Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm.
I still recommend wearing a lip balm underneath.
What’s special about Lollipop is that it isn’t just another pink. It actually has fine shimmer that looks purplish. But don’t worry about any grittiness – the finish was still smooth. You don’t see chunks of sparkle on your pout. And even when this wore off, I didn’t notice any fallout.
I apply it right from the tube. It goes on smoothly and provides quite a lot of pigmentation, as you can see in my above swatches. It’s not fully opaque, though. You can still see a bit of your lips through it, which I like. It’s a good transition product for those who want to test the waters from a lip gloss and swim closer to a lipstick.
What Is the Wear Time?
Compared to Peach Parfait, which I’ve previously reviewed and swatched, I was surprised that Lollipop lasted a lot longer on my lips. As long as I didn’t eat, drink, or talk excessively, Lollipop stayed on for about 2.5 hours before it started to lose its shiny quality and then fade a bit.
I was really impressed by this because normally you don’t expect lip butters to last more than an hour.
You can expect to have to reapply this throughout the day to keep it looking fresh. It’s not a lipstick, and I think the slick finish is a tell-tale sign that the product isn’t meant to be long-wearing.
Okay, I like the quilted design on the translucent tube. I like how the tube corresponds to the colour inside. And I like how at the top of the cap, there’s a clear window so you can see exactly the colour you’re getting.
But…I don’t like how the cap is so long and the base of the tube (the black part) is so small. This makes it tricky to open sometimes. And if you have hand lotion on, good luck!
If they only made the base a bit taller or added grips to the side, it would’ve been a more thoughtful and practical design.
Also, I would prefer a slanted, pointed tip like a lipstick instead of the flat, slanted tip. You can’t be too precise with this lip butter. I don’t have a problem applying it, but for more control, I wish the tip was a different shape.
Another thing I noticed is that after using it for a short time, it gets really messy. Product gets onto the silver tube.
The Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butters are permanent items, so you don’t have to worry about snatching them up right now before they disappear. That being said, some people (like me) have found it tricky to find because, well, a lot of beauty lovers have heard about the hype surrounding this and have picked the promotional displays clean. 😉
You may need to go to several stores to find it, but trust me, Lollipop is worth it! (I can see the colour looking great on people of diverse skin tones.)
Revlon was really smart – they released a smorgasbord of colours. You’re sure to find one that suits your skin tone, your comfort level, and your makeup wardrobe! They have everything from really subtle neutrals to the deep and decadent.
Some people have said that they wished the Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butters had scents that correspond to their colour names. But I’m really glad they didn’t add any fragrances. I’m picky about scents, especially when I’m wearing it on my lips, which are so close to my nose. If I love a colour, but can’t stand the scent, it’s a major deal-breaker.
But, if Revlon wanted to have some fun, they could one day release a special limited-edition collection of the most popular colours and add scents to those.
Final Verdict: 10/10
I’m in love and lust with the Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Lollipop! After using it several times, I want to experiment with bolder lip colours. It’s amazing how much of a difference more colour on your lips can make. You could literally wear no eye makeup, slap this sucker on, and look happy and awake.
Which pink lip colours do you reach for the most? Do you like subtle lip colours? Are you venturing out and trying bolder looks?
