Revlon Pacific Coast by Gucci Westman Collection

Spring / Summer means new collections and I was so thrilled to see the new Revlon Lip Butter shades on the shelves last week.  Gucci Westman is an American makeup artist and cosmetic designer recently employed by Revlon.  She has worked with the likes of Gwyneth Paltrow, Cameron Diaz, Elle Macpherson, Kim Kardashian, and the list goes on.

As soon as I saw them, I tweeted a photo – I just love them so much!  If you would like to see my collection of Revlon Lip Butters (excluding the ones from the new collection), take a look here.  As mentioned in my last Revlon Lip Butter Collection blog post, I ordered 2 of the new shades online because I wasn’t sure whether they would come to South Africa.  I ordered Juicy Papaya and Pink Lemonade because those 2 looked like they would be right up my alley in terms of colour.  Then last week I saw they were on the limited edition shelf in Clicks and decided to get Wild Watermelon AND a Baby Stick.  The term Baby Stick actually had me sold and the packaging was the cherry on top – I mean, how cute is that fat little stick?!  There are 3 Baby Sticks in the collection – I chose Pink Passion (don’t even bother swatching the other 2 shades, girls – they’re useless).  There are 4 new Lip Butter shades but I didn’t purchase Sorbet as it was just too similar to another Lip Butter I own called Sweet Tart.

Wild Watermelon Colorburst Lip Butter

This is the most vibrant and opaque one out of the lot – it’s a reddish pinky shade with a more balmy than glossy finish.  The other 2 Lip Butters I own from the collection are less pigmented but more glossy.

Juicy Papaya Colorburst Lip Butter

This one is a gorgeous peachy orange shade (but less orange than the original Tutti Frutti Lip Butter, and also less pigmented).  It’s almost like a toned down, slightly more pink version of Tutti Frutti and leaves the lips feeling moisturised and glossy.

Pink Lemonade Colorburst Lip Butter

This was the shade I was looking forward to most, because it’s a warm-toned light pink shade without the milkiness of one of the original shades called Cupcake (Cupcake is sometimes a bit too milky and cool-toned for my liking).

Pink Passion Baby Stick For Lips & Cheeks

As mentioned above, the other 2 shades called Sunset & Tahitian are a definite no-go in my opinion.  They have absolutely no colour pay-off, a total waste of money.  Pink Passion, on the other hand, is a sheer hot pink shade (yet creamy enough to blend beautifully into the skin).  I smudge it on the tops of my cheeks and blend with a natural-haired blush brush, it gives you the perfect flush without the ‘glossy finish’ you can sometimes get from a cream blush.  That’s what I love about this little fatty – it’s PERFECT for Summer because it is a sheer tint for the lips and cheeks that gives you a glow but not an oil-slick glow.  I love it for the lips too, as it leaves the lips with a slightly matte tint but isn’t drying in the least.  It’s a pretty darn special stick, I would say.  Now if only they’ll work on the pigmentation of the other 2 shades…

The new Revlon Lip Butters retail for R 125,00 at Clicks, Dischem and selected Foschini stores, whereas the Baby Stick retails for R 99,99.


Now tell me those swatches don’t make you want to grab your keys and run for the nearest Clicks!?

    Wow, they’re so pretty!

      Super pretty! I couldn’t believe my eyes when I swatched them, they are perfect for Spring & Summer! x

    Beautiful colours – I swatched the peach blush stick and it was invisible hahah 😉 xx

    • Luzanne 12 September 2013 / 11:03

      The peach one was the first one I swatched, because it looked so gorgeous but then there was nothing transferred to my skin. I was so frustrated! Then Pink Passion turned out to be a pretty colour – I don’t own a lot of hot pink blush shades, so it was perfect.

      Thanks for commenting, Nicole! x

    I have Wild Watermelon and Juicy Papaya, love them. Especially Wild Watermelon, I reach for that one all the time, our summer is coming to an end here in the states, but I sure did use this baby quite a bit. :) I love Lip Butters, I want ALL the shades, I think everytime I hit a drugstore I purchase at least one! :)
