Weekly review... Revlon lip butters....

I heard the hype. I saw the reviews. I dismissed them as something I'd never really be bothered in. I then saw them on my local makeup lady's market stall for 2 for £5 (she buys the testers before they go into stores or something, there are some serious bargains!!) and thought 'I'll give them a go'. Then of course I fell in love with them!

I picked up the colours Peach Parfait and Cupcake, neither of which I'd heard much about. I did really love Strawberry Shortcake (I think that's the name) but Cupcake seemed a much more lilac-pink which I love right now. 

Left - Peach Parfait. Right - Cupcake.

Firstly they are SO silky, they do take some effort to build up the colour but I'd read that and was prepared for it. They smell gorgeous, have a gorgeous glossy finish without being sticky like a typical gloss, and don't smudge like I was expecting them to. 

Ready for some stupid squinty pictures? Good, because as soon as I set my camera up outside the bloody sun came out and blinded me so I look ridiculous, but the colours do show up lovely!

Peach Parfait has a really obvious gold glitter running through it in the tube but as soon as it's on the lips that sort of disappears which I'm quite pleased about. It's a really natural, 'healthy' colour that I'll be wearing daily from now on! 

Cupcake is my new obsession. A real lilac toned pink, this will look AMAZING with a tan, and I'll build the colour up to pair it with a smokey gold eye on a night out!

Has anyone else tried the lip butters? What other shades do you recommend? I'm hoping to go back for some more soon!

    1. They have an amazing colour range too, but cupcake was my favourite. Strawberry shortcake is similar but a touch more rose pink rather than lilac, so cute!! xxx
