Review of Revlon Lip Butters
Look at them. Justtt look at ’em! Revlon Lip Butters come in a number of shades, many of which can be flattering on a wide variety of skin tones. Missing form the bunch is Pink Truffle, one of my favorites from the line and a definite my-lip-color-but-better holy grail product. I actually went to pick one up today, but I had already taken the photos. You can find Pink Truffle here. Now for the review…
I am absolutely in love with this line. The texture, the smell, the color payoff…just perfect! First let me start with the smell. It has a very subtle shea buttery type scent that you will hardly notice most of the time, and will probably like when you do pick up on it. The texture is…well, buttery. It’s smooth and moisturizing without feeling slippery the way these types of products often can. It’s also got a really impressive color payoff that manages to give a gorgeous tint subtle enough to look naturally flattering, but bold enough to give good oompf! Somehow the colors are so universally flattering they look like completely different shades on different skin tones.
Lollipop is a pretty bright blue-based pink that’s pretty sheer, but has an impressive build. I use this for a bold lip paired with a simple cate eye and it makes me look like a barbie doll. So fun. Love it!
Brown Sugar gives my lips the most beautiful bronze shimmer, and complements my skin tone in unspeakable ways! I almost exclusively use these in the summer months when I’m big on highlighter over blush.
Pink Truffle is a gorgeous my-lip-but-better that gives me a nice, warm flush. I like it best in the spring and summer months, but again have used up so many tubes in the last year since I discovered these that it’s safe to say I’m a fan all year round.
Sugar Plum gives a beautiful plum flush that looks divine in the winter and fall, but also works in the summer when applied lightly. I have literally gone through almost 10 of these Sugar Plum bad boys in less than a year, and I de-potted the rest once I hit tube. See below for proof.
No strong negatives come to mind. Brown Sugar has gotten the least amount of use, mostly due to the fact that it leaves behind an annoying glitter residue on the lip. I have, however, gone through two tubes already which should tell you its not much of a deal breaker.
These are not longwearing colors, nor are they advised as such. They are a beautiful cross between tinted lip balm and a satin lipstick. I highly recommend them to everyone, but especially to those lipgloss and lip balm mavens who are wary of or inexperienced with lipsticks and looking to jump in! That’s definitely where I was last year when I first picked these up, and I must say they were my gateway drug.
If you wanna see how I de-pot these and other lipsticks, let me know! What are your holy grail lip products?
