Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in #030 Fig Jam

Makeup

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter was one of the most talked about product when it was released more than 2 years ago. I was really excited when it finally arrived Australia, until I saw the price tag, A$21.95. Of course stores like Priceline and Chemist Warehouse have discounts from time to time. For some reason I’ve never purchased one until recently, when all Revlon lip products were reduced to A$10 at Priceline quite a few months ago.

I know, I’m supposed to be on spending ban. But I was in I-really-need-a-new-lipstick mode and I could die if I didn’t have one! Ok, not really, but you get what I mean. :p

As usual, I limited myself to get only 1 and I chose Fig Jam, which was said to be a dupe of Clinique’s Black Honey, which I used to owned but, sadly, lost it!

I’ve had several unsuccessful DIY ombre hair attempts in the past. After the previous failed attempt with a product that’s designed for ombre hair, I was going to get the same product but in different color that’s specifically for dark hair, but… you know I like to get things at discounted price, because smart tight-ass consumer do not buy things at full price when you know that they are discounted regularly. Either it didn’t happen or when it happened, it was out of stock.

I ended up using something in my current inventory that was purchased a while ago when it was discounted to A$10 at either Priceline or Chemist Warehouse.

It was my first time using hair color from this line. There are 2 things that attracted my attention. 1) The vibrant hair photos on the box. 2) It gives grey coverage with no ammonia. While ammonia smell doesn’t bother me that much, it still smells.
