Review: Revlon 'Juicy Papaya' and 'Wild Watermelon' Lip Butters

Greetings from the Dark Side~

Revlon's summer collection, the Pacific Coast collection by Gucci Wetsman, included four new shades of the Lip Butters. This was exciting for me personally because I am crazy about Lip Butters. Most of the them and extremely wonderful: they are pigmented, moisturizing, and easy to touch up. I purchased two colors from that collection: Juicy Papaya and Wild Watermelon. These are supposed to be included in the permanent range, so if you missed out don't fret just yet!

  Lip Butters in 'Juicy Papaya' and 'Wild Watermelon'
 Lip Butters come in a cute tube with a color-coded cap.
'Juicy Papaya'- sheer light peachy orange
'Wild Watermelon'- a bright and juicy pink-toned red.
Both of these colors have a very smooth texture, very much like a lip balm. They also both have a very juicy, glossy finish.
Wild Watermelon is very pigmented, and I only need one swipe to get a great color payoff. Juicy Papaya is more sheer and more natural-looking.
Both apply like a dream. They do not emphasize dryness or look patchy.
Wear (comfort):
 They are extremely comfy and not sticky at all!
Wear (time):
 Because they are very moisturizing, their wear time is not very great. They probably last about 3 hours on me. But reapplying is a breeze!
Dupes? Similar products?:
'Juicy Papaya' looks a bit like 'Creamsicle', but it is a bit more orange and less nude than 'Creamsicle'. I actually prefer 'Juicy Papaya' more because it bring a bit more color to my face while still looking more natural than 'Creamsicle'.

I LOOOOOVE both of these new lip butters. They are absolutely perfect. They make for an amazing alternative to lipsticks when my lips are dry. There is very little room for mistake with these because they apply like lip balm but have a really great color payoff. You can easily apply these without the use of a mirror. The end result is a moisturizing lip product that actually makes your lips look incredibly pouty and cute!
The only downside to these, and most lip butters, is that they do not last long on the lips. They usually last about 3-4 hours on me, at max. If you eat, you will definitely have to retouch. But like I said, reapplying these is insanely easy and it is not a a huge problem to just take this out of your purse and quickly put it on your lips again.

Wild Watermelon:


Even though these are not extremely long-lasting, I still absolutely love them ♥ I think the main reason I really love these is because they are moisturizing on my incredibly dry lips. It is so nice to have pretty lip colors that make your lips look fabulous and not a dry, patchy mess!

Rating: 10/10


  1. Lovely colours! It looks like you only applied lip balm on your lips.

  2. Juicy Papaya looks like a regular lip balm, but Wild Watermelon sure packs a bit more punch :D

  3. Great colors but I guess I have to pass on this one. I usually prefer long lasting lippies.

  4. These are so pretty, I had no idea they would be sheer and moisturizing. Thanks for the post.

  5. Juicy Papaya is so prettyy! Your lips do look really juicy xD

  6. Revlon Lip Butters are amazing and these colors are gorgeous!!

  8. Thanks for the swatches! They are so beautiful! x

  9. They are both so beautiful that I can't choose each one I like the most! Want them both!! Thanks for posting :)

  10. I love both of them, but I think I like Juicy Papaya a little better. Thanks for the swatches!

  11. I got the Juicy Papaya one and adore it too >.< Its so nice as an everyday alternative to lip balm.

  12. I bought Revlon 'Juicy Papaya' back in January.Juicy papaya is a semi-sheer warm coral-peach.I love how this looks on me.This product was nice and light feeling on and non sticky or tacky and it was not drying at all.
