Revlon Lip Butters, everyone has heard about them by now. They are in between a chapstick and a lipstick, the perfect balance between colour and moisture. I love them because my lips get cracked and dry when I attempt to wear most lipsticks. I am one of those people who reapplies chapstick (my top choice is Blistex Lip Medex in stick form) all day long in the winter, that's how dry my lips are. These are a great substitute for lipstick for me. They come in a huge variety of colours and now can be found in Canada and the US pretty readily.
Well.ca and some more during the Rexall BOGO lipstick sale, I have 14 out of the 20 now. I will be bringing you this review in two parts (because I have that many to go through).
Another beef I have is the terminology of this product, which many other bloggers have brought up, when I think of "butter" I think nourishing, moisturizing, with some sort of agent to protect my lips, usually in the form of a pot. These lip butters aren't really "butters" at all, although it is a cute name. I always wear a lipbalm underneath these as well if I can remember because although they are moist, they aren't moisturizing enough for me on their own.
Here are my bare lips with nothing on them. They are moderately pigmented.
We will start this review out with my favourite lip butter of the bunch, Lollipop. This is a bright pink fuchsia colour, very pigmented.
Pink Truffle, you'd think it would be pink, but this one comes off quite brown/pink on me. Not my favourite out of the bunch of sure. More of a subtle, everyday colour.
Strawberry Shortcake is a really nice pale pink, probably my favourite pink out of the collection.
Candy Apple is a bright red orange. It's very pigmented and definitely more on the lipstick side than the chapstick. I love this colour for the winter.
Cherry Tart is much like Candy Apple but it's more on the cooler side with blue undertones. Also very pigmented.
Raspberry Pie is a pinky red, very pigmented as well. With this one, Candy Apple and Cherry Tart you definitely need a mirror to put on, or else you will get it all over your lips.
