Revlon Lip Butters
As you probably know, there has been a lot of anticipation over the new Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters. I myself used to be rather a bit jealous of the lovely ladies in the US, who had access to these pretty balms. So of course, when they were released over here, I found myself drawn to them.
At first I couldn't decide which colour to choose, as I was originally only going to get one, however Boots put an end to that as makeup was on 3 for 2 and I had to buy my friend a birthday present anyway... The colours I eventually picked out are 025 Peach Parfait and 050 Berry Smoothie. How pretty are those names? (Yes I am a sucker for names of products and their packaging, and I have to say, Revlon did a good job ｡◕‿◕｡)
At £7.99, I was quite unhappy with the price at first, as I thought it was a lot of money for a product that didn't really seem to know what it was. Is it a lipstick? Is it a balm? Well, my conclusion is that it is definitely leaning towards the lipstick side of things. I do feel like it does give my lips some moisture, but it is not a product I would turn to if my lips felt dry. The colour of the lipstick is quite sheer and flattering, though in the tube the colours look really bright. This obviously means that the lasting power is lacking to say the least.
My favourite out of the two is definitely Peach Parfait, because it is laden with golden sparkles and gives a lovely subtle colour and gloss to the lips. Overall, I would recommend buying one of these, because I have gotten a lot of use out of them both already - they are really easy to wear and are brilliant for just popping in your bag.
