Revlon Lip Butter in Cupcake Review
Tuesday, April 17, 2012
Revlon Color Burst Lip Butters with plenty of beauty blog posts out there reviewing them. As you may well know, I'm no beauty expert, so this is sort of a 'normal' girl's thoughts on the product!
I bought my lip butter from the Boots in Chesterfield centre where they had quite a few of the different shades in stock. I didn't count so I'm not so sure that they had all of the 14 shades, but I'd definitely recommend popping there if you live close by. I had such a difficult choice to make between all of the different colours, and it didn't help that I couldn't remember which I'd liked after seeing them on another girl's blog. I ended up painting my wrist a number of pink shades before deciding on the very sugary sweet Cupcake!
This shade is a girly pink colour, it is blue toned and gives of an almost lilac colour. It is quite sheer, as you can see in the swatch I did on my wrist, however you can build the colour up by applying more. I have fairly pigmented lips and the colour does cover mine completely after applying more. The feel of the product on the lips is just lovely. Revlon describe the product as 'shiny colour' mixed with 'buttery balm,' and in my opinion the product definitely feels buttery and smooth on the lips - just how you'd expect a thick lip balm to feel. In terms of how long it lasts, I don't have that many lip products to compare it to. It seems to last for a couple of hours, which compared to my beloved Rockalily lipstick, isn't all that long.
All things considered I'd definitely try Revlon Color Burst Lip Butters if you are looking for a product that is more moisturising on the lips than your average lipstick. For me they are slightly expensive at £7.99 but you can get 3 for 2 in Boots at the moment. Cupcake is definitely the colour for you if you are looking for a girly pink colour! The sheerness of the product would also make it great for applying over other colours, although I'm yet to try this.
Have you bought any lip butters? What other shades would you recommend?
