When Revlon came out with four new shades of their Colorburst Lip Butters, I knew I had to get my hands on Juicy Papaya and Wild Watermelon. I found Wild Watermelon here, but never had any luck finding Juicy Papaya until recently. Stores have finally added all the new shades to the permanent Lip Butter displays, so I was finally able to get it - yay!
Juicy Papaya is a soft and muted peachy coral color. Peach and coral are my weaknesses, so it's no surprise that I was drawn to this shade! Revlon's Lip Butters are one of my favorite lip products and including this one I now have six of them. Like my others, Juicy Papaya applied easily and smoothly, is hydrating, and comfortable to wear. I love it and it didn't disappoint!
Okay, swatch time!
The first photo shows one 'normal' swipe, where you can see it's quite sheer. The second photo is a much heavier swatch.. you can see the color more but it still has a transluscent quality to it. And the third photo is a lip swatch (obviously) where I applied the product heavily. If I just apply it normally it just gives a very slight tint to my lips and some shine, so I didn't see the point in showing a lip swatch for that way. If your lips aren't very pigmented it would probably show up better, though! Anyway..
I can see myself getting a lot of use out of Juicy Papaya whether I wear it sheer or heavily. Worn sheer it just gives my lips a little boost as I just explained (shine and a faint tint) and I can also substitute it as a balm; worn heavily (though still not opaque) it's one of those shades that's right up my alley. It'll be a great everyday shade or something to slap on when I don't know what else to wear.
