Hello, dahlings! As you know, I am a full on fan of the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters. Out of the many lip products I've bought in the last six months, these babies are some of my favorites! A few days ago, I showed y'all five lush pinks from the line. Today, we'll be taking a look at three beautiful berry shades! The days might be warming up, but a berry pout never goes out of style and is always in season for a sophisticated nighttime look.

As with the pinks, these have much the same buttery, moisturizing formula. Even so, make sure to not neglect your pre-application exfoliation to have the best results. The darker colors do feel slightly heavier on, but these lip butters are still a fantastic alternative to traditional lipsticks. Also, because these are darker, you'll want to have a mirror handy before slapping it on to get an even berry pout. And, as always, don't leave these anywhere warm as they will melt, and that would just be no fun! Now, let's get to the swatches!

• 010 Raspberry Pie:
Raspberry Pie is a gorgeous berry shade with juicy pink undertones. One swipe is all you need to get a full on opaque pout. While this could definitely be considered an autumn color, it reminds me of the fruity stains you get from eating raspberry tarts or rhubarb pie at a fabulous southern feast. There's no settling into find lines, no clinging to dry bits, and no glitter, making for a fabulous shade for all ages! Raspberry Pie lasts for several hours, and wears evenly, so put it on and head out for a night on the town!

• 050 Berry Smoothie:
Berry Smoothie is a sheerer, red-toned berry shade with gold micro-glitter. With this one, I definitely notice a bit of line settling and patchiness that I don't experience with the other shades, and it doesn't feel quite as creamy and hydrating. However, if you work with it a bit, it really is a beautiful shade. This is a much more everyday wear type of shade that is perfect for everything from a day at the office to going out to run errands. Berry Smoothie is the type of shade that really warms up the face and brings it alive, so don't leave it in your makeup drawer this spring. Go ahead and give it a whirl!

• 075 Lollipop:
Lollipop is a blue-toned fuchsia berry with silver micro-glitter, though you don't feel it at all when wearing it. It just gives a nice shine to your lips. For some, Lollipop might fall into the pink category, but on my lips it is much more berry-like in shade, hence my including it with the other berries. Lollipop is the perfect transition shade from warm days to cool ones and back again, so I can imagine it getting plenty of use when I want to rock a darker bold lip. It's also fairly sheer when first applied so you can easily ramp it up of tone it down to suit your needs. It's beautifully moisturizing and so much fun to wear!

Overall, I really love the berry shades, and unlike with some of the pink hues, I find these to all be fairly different from each other. If I had to choose a favorite of these three, it would probably be Lollipop. It's just so fun and easily wearable year round! Signature lip, anyone? Though, I do think that Berry Smoothie would look fantastic on loads of skin tones even if it is a bit fussy. Plus, I think berries tend to look good on all ages, so there is a little bit of something for everyone!

Next up, we'll be looking at a few of the reds and a few of the nudes from the collection, so stay tuned, beauties!

Do you own any of the berry shades from the Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters? Which hue calls to you most?

Stay gorgeous, peaches!
