Yet again here I am pretty late on this beauty bandwagon, but better late than never hey. If you haven't already noticed then I'm talking about the Revlon Lip Butters. I had been humming and haring about these products for a long time until I decided to take the plunge recently when Boots had a 3 for 2 on make up offer. Also if you didn't already know then I'm pretty new to the whole lipstick thing and am slowly but surely adding to my collection.
This was actually one of my very first lipstick purchases so colour wise I was being very cautious. I picked up the shade called 'Pink Lemonade' which is a very subtle light pink and for my first lippy I was after a subtle colour so this one ticked that box. Obviously like everybody else the massive rave about these products is huge, the fact that they're so moisturising, nourishing and pigmented are just a few of the main reasons.
There are also so many shades to choose from so I was stood in front of the Revlon counter for some considerate amount of time. This also means when I go back for another shade I'm sure I'll be stuck for choice! This is the kind of lipstick I'd go for on those 'no make up' make up days or when I'm not feeling like a bright lip colour. There are obviously many more pigmented and bold shades within this range and I think I will definitely be picking from a more bold shade next time!
One of the main things I love about this product is the fact that it's just like a pigmented colour lip balm. So for someone who was pretty scared at first of putting lipstick on this was the perfect option to ease it on. I am also very drawn to the packaging, it's so chic and elegant! I love the simple quilted lid but it adds so much to the product and also matches the colour of the lipstick inside which I think is a nice touch.
Overall I do love this product although I think I would definitely go for a bolder colour next time and there will be a next time, ha! I would love to know if you've tried a lip butter and what shades are your favourites? Leave me a comment and let me know which one I should go for next :-)
