If given the option, 99% of the time, I would reach for a lip gloss instead of a lipstick because I like my lips to feel moisturized.
I do have a few favourite lipsticks, but I always wished that they wouldn’t leave my pout feeling dry.
Enter the Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butters.
Ever since I first heard all the hype surrounding them, I’ve been wanting to try at least one so badly.
Not only are they supposed to offer some colour, but they’re also supposed to keep your lips feeling good instead of tight and dry.
I ended up buying two shades, one of which is Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter Peach Parfait! And I’m very happy that I chose this one. It’s easy-to-wear, very natural, and gives your lips a little shimmer.

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter Peach Parfait Review
The Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Peach Parfait is a beautiful, easy-going colour that I feel would complement a lot of different skin tones. And since it isn’t a harsh or dramatic shade, you won’t feel self-conscious wearing this, even if you’re the type of person who normally just wears a clear lip balm.
I felt like this shade brightened up my lips a bit and added a pretty sheen with a wash of colour. This made my lips look more alive and healthy. Plus, since the colour wasn’t that far off from the shade of my bare lips, I felt very comfortable wearing this with any makeup look.
Is It Moisturizing?
Yes, it does provide some hydration to your lips, but I wouldn’t recommend throwing out your lip balm in favour of this.
The Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter adds a little sheen, but it is nowhere near as intensely moisturizing as Jack Black lip balms.
I’ve worn Peach Parfait over my natural lips and over a lip balm. After trying both ways, I recommend putting a balm underneath because over time, your lips will feel significantly drier if you use Peach Parfait solo as opposed to layered over a balm.
This has a peachy, shimmery finish that subtly highlights your lips. The particles are fine, so it won’t look like your lips are disco balls, and there’s no grittiness when you rub your lips together.
The Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Peach Parfait goes on very smoothly. You apply it like a lipstick, but the colour payoff is sheer, which means you don’t have to fuss with a lip liner or be too precise. Essentially, this is a low-maintenance lip product, and the kind I prefer.
What Is the Wear Time?
Since these are slicker than lipsticks, you really can’t expect them to be long-lasting. On me, it only lasted about an hour before it started to fade. When they faded, the colour wore off evenly, so you don’t get that weird ring around your lips, and the moisture wore away evenly, too.
If you’re eating, I can’t see these lasting at all. And if you’re talking a lot, I expect that these would wear off in a jiffy.
Plan to reapply these as needed.
I realize that I may be the only person who thinks this, but I strongly dislike the packaging. Yes, the translucent, quilted tube is cute, but I don’t feel like it’s very practical. It can be a bit cumbersome to lift the tube from the base because the base is so small. And if you have lotion on your hands, it becomes exponentially more challenging.
Also, I wish that the product itself had a point like a lipstick instead of being flat. Yes, you don’t have to be too precise when applying this product, but with the other available shades (that are darker), you may actually need greater precision. This flat, wide, stick applies the product sloppier than a lipstick-style tip would.
If the stick itself weren’t as wide, perhaps that would also prevent the tube from getting messy. Right now, after you use it and then twist it back down, some of the product ends up on the silver tube part, which looks terrible.
This was really hard for me to track down because by the time I looked for them in January, all of the drugstore displays were cleaned out…or just had colours I wasn’t interested in.
If you’re in Canada, too, and you’re having difficulty finding the colour you want, I suggest ordering online from Well.ca because they have a bunch of the colours and even offer free shipping to Canada!
(Also worth noting is that when you receive them in the mail, they’re individually sealed with a plastic wrapper. I like this a lot for hygienic reasons. In the drugstore, I saw lots of non-testers that people had thoughtlessly opened and contaminated! I don’t want to buy a lip product that’s been used by a stranger! Eww!)
The beautiful thing about the Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butters is that they come in 20 different shades, and these shades are all in the permanent collection! There’s really something to suit everyone. Some are more pigmented than others.
Final Verdict: 9/10
I really like the Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Peach Parfait because the colour doesn’t intimidate me, the formula glides onto your lips, and it adds just the right amount of sheen and shimmer to make me look more awake.
That being said, I won’t be one of the many women who have rushed out and bought dozens of the lip butters.
I purchased it in Red Velvet, too, and hope to find it in Lollipop, but after Lollipop, I don’t plan on getting any of the other shades since these are the only ones that appeal to me.
(Edit: I found it in Lollipop! 😀 Click here to see my Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter Lollipop swatches & review!)
If you’re curious about trying a lip colour, but have been wary before because lipsticks tend to be too pigmented or drying, I highly recommend trying Peach Parfait. I can see this shade being appropriate for everyone from teens to seniors, and versatility is a beautiful thing! 🙂
