Revlon Colorburst Lipbutter Red Velvet review,swatches

Revlon Colorburst lip butter 'Red velvet' is a its a super luxe and sensuous oxblood color perfect for the Autumn-Winter season and is currently trending the runways.

Now Girls,don't get your PETA-panties in a bunch, contrary to what your first thought might be about oxblood-it being... well-'Ox' blood!, it isn't actually supposed to have any such gory origins. 
Oxblood refers to a dark brownish red shade, which resembles dried oxidized blood, hence the name 'Oxblood'.

Revlon Colorburst lipbutters with the goodness of hydrating mango, shea and coconut butter formula boosts lip moisture by 156%
Pampering gel formula provides super charged hydration and glides on lips buttery smooth

Red velvet lipbutter has a sheer balmy texture,one swipe creates a hint of sophisticate color ,but swipe it on 3 times and it will give you bold and striking glossy sheeny dark oxblood shade with a hint of burgundy.Thankfully there is no shimmer in Red velvet lip butter and it makes it look very classy.This shade will be perfect for medium to dusky skin tones.

Packaging of Revlon Colorburst Lip butters follows the same design family as the diamond pattern we have seen on the colorburst lipstick and lipglosses.The tube is metallic and the outer casing translucent plastic in the same shade as that of the lipstick,there is also a clear window on top and color coded sticker at the base to help you spot your lippie in a jiffy. The packaging is pretty, albeit a bit flimsy.

The colorburst lipbutter lasts for around 2  hours on my lips after which a it fades away with a nice burgundy reddish tint and a hint of glossiness on my lips.

The pricing- In US these are priced at approx $ 7.5 (varies from store to store) though usually you can snag them on a BOGO (buy one get one offer), no such luck for makeup addicts in India we have to fork out Rs 600/- bucks a piece.
The quantity we get in each of these lip butter tubes is also incredibly low at just 2.55 grams,considering these are balmy textured lippies with low wear time, and need for frequent reapplication,there is a very good chance of finishing these up pretty quickly.

 Three swipes, the shade looks much more intense and has a hint of burgundy which my camera is not picking up in the pictures.

Revlon colorburst Red Velvet,its a classy red when worn sheer.It looks very chic and sophisticate oxblood red when you swipe it on 3 times.
Medium to dusky toned Divas would totally rock Red Velvet.Highly recommend it!
