So! I fell in love with these when I heard about them. They were new for 2013 and I was insanely excited. A balm with enough pigment to look pretty while not being obvious?! And it's hydrating?! And it's got enough product to last while not being so much to drive me insane?! Gimme!
I never troubled myself with Revlon Lip Butters. Why? I was overwhelmed by the colors, wasn't sure what I would like/what would look good, what was decently pigmented, what wasn't, etc... So these were my choice instead. Some are decently pigmented, a slick feel that's also hydrating, and have a nice, somewhat small color range. Nothing to overwhelm.

Like many drugstore products, the price varies in stores. I've seen these in drugstores (for example, CVS) and in the grocery stores more recently. From CVS (where Maybelline apparently pulled it's online price...), the Color Whispers are $7.49 so expect to pay something like $7 to $8 in stores.
PS: I see more Maybelline products in my future, heehee. I've been really liking them lately; have always loved the look of their Color Plush quads though I never troubled myself to buy one. I'm trying to dupe Koji Dolly Wink Eyeshadow Quad in No. 1 Sweet Dolly, a very pretty palette and an expensive one (about $20 on eBay. Yikes!). If you have any suggestions for duping the palette, let me know in the comments or directly message me through my contact page. I'd like to know some dupes!
PPS: Long time, no review and I apologize for that. Getting pictures has been a bit of an issue and I'm trying to get prepared for an anime/comic convention. I missed a year and didn't stay long this year; a band I've wanted to meet/see is going to be there so I really need to be ready in advance! I hope to get photos of my MAX★STAR shoes, a wig when I get it and hopefully my circle lenses (my mom doesn't approve though I've never had troubles personally). I've also re-joined a burlesque troupe and might have a makeup job in October. My life is about to explode...
