Cotton Candy, Anyone?

I'm still totally sleepy as I type this out... Nevertheless I really want to get this review out since I think the product I'm going to be taking about is such an overhyped one. Yes my sweets, overhyped! And as usual, I caved in only after a year of seeing this online and only when it was on SALE!
What product am I talking about? Well, it's another Revlon baby.
It's the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter!

I'm betting most, if not all, of you have either tried this product, have friends who've tried it or have read a gazillion reviews on this product but still I'm going to give my two cents about it.
When I spotted this on sale from it's usually higher price tag online, I grabbed the opportunity right away. At that time only the shade Cotton Candy was up for grabs so I immediately placed in an order.
Cotton Candy is a baby pink shade with a very subtle golden shimmer to it.

First things first, packaging. I am really in love with the quilt patterned cap that locks firmly in place and doesn't budge even after being tumbled around in the abyss that is my "bag".  Plus points for the cap having the same color as the product that the tube houses! This makes the shade so much easier to spot when I store it alongside my other lipsticks, balms and butters. 

I also like the formulation of the lip butter. It glides without effort onto my lips and is moisturizing. Though it has shimmer in it, you can't feel any grainy scratchy-ness on your lips and the moisturizing effect stays for a couple of hours.

The only thing I had a problem with was the shade I got it in and that the color doesn't stay on too long...  This shade stayed put on my lips for about 2 hours max! I think it doesn't really suite me, or maybe it's because I haven't found an eye look that would go with this shade yet. Maybe next time I'll try checking out a darker shade...
