Malaysia is supposed to get the Revlon lip butters in store in March 2012 but Watsons and Guardian pharmacy already have them in store the last time I checked (I went to a few just to be sure). Malaysia and Singapore only have a limited range of colours available, at the moment it's only 8 out of the 20 available shades (what a shame >__<) and these lip butters are priced at RM24.90 each.
Let's take a closer look at the lip butters.

020 Brown Sugar
025 Peach Parfait
I wear this the most out of all the shades I have. This is a very good everyday peachy pink colour since it's not too bold and it goes with lots of different makeup looks. When you look at it in the tube, the glitter particles are clearly visible and you can kinda feel them on your lips.

Overall, I like the Revlon lip butters. I think that the quality is good for the price. I personally like sheer lip colours, so I don't mind the shorter wear time (about 3 hours or so if I don't talk too much/eat/drink). These are easy to reapply throughout the day because they are not too opaque so there is no need for precise application. There is also no obvious scent/smell, and the packaging is cute but nothing that screams luxury.
You have to keep in mind that not all of these are created equal, so some shades are more pigmented and some are sheer and balmy. I don't find that these moisturizes my lips, so it definitely would not do the job that a lip balm can do. However, they do not dry my lips out or make them peel. Some have compared these to Chanel rouge coco shine, but I think that Chanel's packaging is more sturdy and luxurious, and the texture of the rouge coco shine is more silky and smooth. The Revlon lip butters can feel a little tacky on the lips.
All in all, I like the Revlon lip butters and is definitely interested in trying out other shades. I also recommend that you check out swatches online if you are interested in purchasing because some of these can appear quite different on the lips than in a swatch on your arm.
On a side note, I am wondering if any of you gets annoyed by stickers on products that are ridiculously difficult to remove? Like so.
I am here to share my newfound secret with you guys. I found a way to remove the stickers cleanly.
Have you tried out the Revlon lip butters?
This is it from me so far.
