Okay, okay…so I said before that after getting 3 of the Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butters that I wasn’t interested in any of the other colours.
A $4.99 CAD sale at Rexall changed my mind. Hahahahaha! (Hypocrite much? Oh boy…)
I picked up a few additional shades. Among them was Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter Strawberry Shortcake!
Like I’ve said before – these Revlon Lip Butters are like potato chips. You can’t just have one. And there are so many wearable shades…ahhhhh!

Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter Strawberry Shortcake Review
This is a very easy colour to wear because it’s a milky pink with a bit of shimmer. It’s not wild and dramatic like a deep red. It adds just a little baby pink so that your lips are noticeably pink without being bam-in-your-face like Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Lollipop.
The colour seems to sink into lip lines, but in real life, it’s not as noticeable as in my blown-up lip swatches. It wasn’t enough to bother me.
Is It Moisturizing?
When it’s first applied, it felt very moisturizing and comfortable on my lips. However, I don’t think it’s hydrating enough to skip using a good lip balm.
If you’re going to use a lip balm but are concerned that it’ll mute the colour, I suggest applying your lip balm about 15 minutes prior to using the Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter. Then, blot your lips with tissue before applying Strawberry Shortcake. You’ll have the hydration from your lip balm while still getting the maximum colour from your lip butter.
The Strawberry Shortcake Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter has a shiny finish. There’s some shimmer, but I didn’t really see it on my lips. It’s the kind of shimmer that just gives your pout a sheen, and it’s very natural, so you don’t have to worry about seeing big pieces of glitter.
When I wore Strawberry Shortcake, my lips felt very smooth and soft.
I applied this directly from the tube, and it glided on smoothly and easily. Because the shade is pretty light, I had to use more than 2 swipes to build up the colour to what I wanted.
What Is the Wear Time?
While the shade Lollipop lasted a very long time on me, Strawberry Shortcake lasted about an hour before I noticed it starting to fade. I’ve noticed that the lighter in colour the lip butter is, the faster it wears off on me.
The packaging is okay, but I wish the black bottom was taller. Then it’d be easier to open. Sometimes it’s a little difficult to get the cap off.
Also, I wish the lip butter didn’t have a wide, flat slanted tip. You can get a more-precise application with a narrower tip.
I know that some people wish that these lip butters had corresponding scents. But I’m soooo glad that these don’t smell like anything.
If I don’t like the smell of something (especially something that I’ll be wearing on my lips, which are close to my nose), that’s a major deal-breaker for me. The lack of fragrance helps the lip butters appeal to more people.
Final Verdict: 9/10
The Strawberry Shortcake Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter is a colour that I’ll be reaching for often when I don’t want something dramatic on my lips. It’s an easy, everyday kind of colour.
Did you pick up Strawberry Shortcake? Are you a fan of the Strawberry Shortcake cartoon or dessert?
