Ah long time no proper blog hey!
As the title suggests I jumped on the bandwagon of getting a Revlon Lip Butter, I spent ages swatching them then liked about 5 and then only actually liked one out of all the ones they had to offer. I then was a tad disappointed in it as I thought hmm it doesn't live up to the hype... I'm now slightly eating my own words!
First off I like the packaging with the colour coordinated lid and quilted effect, it makes this look much more expensive than it is plus the lid isn't one to be easily knocked off and stays firmly in place so you can pop this in your bag with no worries of it slipping off and ending up with a messy bag or worse still a hairy fluffy lip butter!.
When I first bought this I didn't really like it, I didn't get the fuss or all the hype around it to me it just seemed like a pigmented lip balm that left a nice bit of colour on my lips.... I could get something like that for cheaper or I already owned something very similar. I popped it in my bag and then began using it frantically, almost having a panic attack at the mere thought of not having it with me and alas a little love (or obsession) of the Revlon Lip Butter was born.
Now it is a good product, it is very moisturising and does leave a good colour pay off on the lips and I would liken it to a really moisturising sheer lipstick although some of the ones I have swatched and seen on other blogs are highly pigmented. I thought this one is a good every day colour, it goes with everything and has very little gold shimmer particles in it which leaves a lovely sheen on the lips.
The down side of this for me is the fact that its not long wearing, I've had it about a week and I have used over half of it because I feel the need to reapply and it is also prone to getting very soft, bending all over the place and just basically starting to look a bit manky. Not something that I particularly like.
Over all though I do like it and it is a great little product but I think possibly for the price and how quickly I seem to be getting through it I don't think I shall buy another once this one has gone.
Have you tried the Revlon Lip Butters?
