Revlon Pink Lemonade Colorburst Lip Butter Review & Swatches

Revlon Pink Lemonade Colorburst Lip Butter

As you know Revlon has a few new Colorburst Lip Butters floating around and Pink Lemonade happens to be one. Now I discussed a few times already that these new shades aren’t as consistent a formula as the original. Pink Lemonade happens to be the worst offender of the four shades in terms of pigmentation and quality.

The color itself is a hard one to pull off as it’s a pale mod pinky peach. The color might be best for a super fair skin tone with less than pigmented lips however, anyone in between might feel the shade makes them look deathly…or at least it made me look zombied.

Take a peek!

Pink Lemonade has an unfortunate formula as it applies horribly. This tugs awfully which leads to uneven coverage and patchiness. The texture also feels and looks dry on my lips accentuating every single line, nook, and cranny. My lips aren’t aging but this shade makes it look like they are plus gives a chapped lip look to my mouth that is far from flattering. On top of all this the formula is very melty which lead to a large chunk breaking off the tip during application.

After ALL this I can’t begin to tell you how unflattering I find the color.

Le sigh!

Unfortunately Pink Lemonade is a shade I’d avoid at all costs.

It’s available as part of the new Revlon Gucci Westman Collection that launched for Summer 2013 but all signs are pointing to the fact that this might become a standard shade and part of the general catalog.

I located it at CVS but reports are coming in that Target has it available in the general catalog so look at the Revlon Lip Butter display for this shade and the other three!

    My target has the other three in the general catalog, but no slot for this one- maybe it is the only one that will be LE?


    • 3/26/13 13:02 the Muse:

      possible….I can’t confirm though my target doesn’t have slots of any of the shades :(


    • 3/26/13 14:20 Caroline:

      I saw this shade at my Target along with the other 3 new ones.


  • 3/26/13 13:01 blueraccoon:

    I don’t like this one either…gives me just a weird frosted shine on my lips, no color, and the formula isn’t comfortable to wear at all. I wish I hadn’t gotten it, tbh, but not sure if I can return it. Well, live and learn.


    • 3/26/13 13:02 the Muse:

      same here :( ugh makes me look scary! color is just all kinds of wrong and formula stinks!


    • 3/26/13 19:38 Jeri:

      of course you can return it


  • 3/26/13 13:06 Esty:

    I just want to say that I have been totally obsessed with your blog since I found it on google. I have learned so much and feel newly inspired to try products and experiment. I was au naturale for a few years but recently realized that make-up does have the power to make someone feel better about themselves. I feel like you are responsible for this! So all of this is to say, THANK YOU. Please keep writing, I’ll keep reading.


    • 3/26/13 13:13 the Muse:

      wow esty how very flattering!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! totally glad you feel that way and thank YOU! thank you for taking time out to say you enjoy the site :) stay beautiful and looking forward to getting to know you here on Musings! :)


  • 3/26/13 13:28 Caroline:

    Thanks for the review! This is really good to know. I’ll definitely steer clear of this shade!


    • 3/26/13 13:36 the Muse:

      my pleasure! it’s really not a great shade :(


  • 3/26/13 14:19 Janelle:

    So I saw these went I went to Ulta to get my Laura Gellar Spackle. They looked so dry in the tube. I only ended up getting one. I am sad as this is my go to forumla.


    • 3/26/13 14:22 the Muse:

      janelle really liked the originals too and enjoyed the smooth creaminess of them but yeah, something weird with these shades :-/


  • 3/26/13 14:24 Katie:

    Muse you look gorgeous in emerald!


    • 3/26/13 14:28 the Muse:

      oh thanks katie! you’re too kind! My skin is looking BLAH due to a bad BB Cream experience (nuance UGH!) so it’s all kinds of dull, thanks that was a pick me up I needed hehe 😀


  • 3/26/13 14:31 Lemony Licks:

    This one looked the cutest out of the new shades too! I am so disappointed since I have 3 or 4 lip butters and they are all great!


  • 3/26/13 14:58 amy:

    I actually really like the color… However, I agree that it’s not the most universal shade. That said, I have yet to try this product, in any shade, but I’ll pass on this one; between the formula being sub-par, and the fact I have a fairly large amount of similar shades, I just can’t justify it.


  • 3/26/13 19:09 Veronica:

    I’d say this is probably going to wear best on the very pale and very cool-toned, which makes it a pretty narrow demographic. 😛 Oddly enough, these pinks do wear well on me, but I think I’ll pass considering I don’t wear pink lipstick often enough to want a subpar product. 😛


  • 3/27/13 4:14 Beth:

    Thank you SO much for this review. I managed to track down the other three spring shades but not this one and I’ve been obsessing over finding it for a couple of weeks now. Looks like I can skip it and I won’t be missing out on much!


    • 3/27/13 9:04 the Muse:

      seriously, you won’t beth, prob the worst shade from the four imho!


  • 3/27/13 6:35 Amber:

    I have about 10 of the original ones that came out and this looks like a shade I could use since I am super fair with dark hair but extremely sad to hear that it doesn’t have the buttery feel like the originals. I absolutely love them!


  • 3/27/13 19:57 Ashley:

    I think all of your makeup here looks really good and that you look really pretty here! :)


    • 3/28/13 10:24 the Muse:

      wow thanks ashley you’re too kind!


  • 3/28/13 18:29 Grace:

    I guess it really depends on skin tone, because I follow quite a few youtube beauty gurus who have really enjoyed this shade.


  • 3/29/13 13:39 april:

    Im sorry I can’t agree. This shade is amazing ! It’s super creamy and glossy !!! Looks great with my skin tone, my fav shade by far. But I must say, I have been watching youtube videos on these lip butters, and the quality of them looks completely different from those in the USA. So maybe the formula is different from those in the UK, well maybe a little? Just a theory :)

    Awesome blog ! :) xxx


  • 4/20/13 14:30 Angie:

    WoW!Thanks for this! I was actually going to go get this today, but I changed my mind. Thanks so much!


    • 4/23/13 16:42 the Muse:
