Revlon Lip Butters

Last year was a great year for new products with my favourite from the year hands down being the Revlon Lip Butters. I can't quite believe it has taken me so long to write about them but what can I say, better late than never.

Wild Watermelon, Peach Parfait, Strawberry Shortcake, Sugar Frosting, Juicy Papaya


Wild Watermelon, Peach Parfait, Strawberry Shortcake, Sugar Frosting, Juicy Papaya
I currently own five of these lip butters and I must confess I can't see myself stopping there as I really want to buy Berry Smoothie and Pink Lemonade if I can ever get my hands on it.

Wild Watermelon is the most vibrant from my collection which is quite clear to see from above. It's quite a heavy swatch which was not intentional as I found that it had in fact melted a little when I went to use it. I haven't noticed this with any of the others so I'm rather stumped as to what had happened. I keep them all together in the same place so it's not as it had been left in a sunny spot anywhere. 

Peach Parfait is a nice peach shade as the name would suggest with a slight shimmer to it. I don't mind the shimmer in this to be fair as I find it quite subtle and after wearing it out last Sunday I can confirm I'll be reaching for it a little more as I had forgot how nice it was.

Strawberry Shortcake is definitely the most girly shade out the five with this being a light bubblegum pink. I tend not to build this up too much as it can look a little Barbie on me if I'm not careful which I must say isn't the type of look I like to go for. Having said that with just a nice light application I think it looks really pretty and feminine.

Sugar Frosting was the first shade I purchased last year and to be honest it is my most disappointing shade as I find it to be very sheer. It's still very nice but it doesn't provide me with much colour pay off therefore I only use it now if I want a nice finish on my lips without wanting a lot of colour.

Last but not least is my favourite shade which is Juicy Papaya. This is a gorgeous peachy/coral tone that I have being reaching for pretty much none stop since I purchased it earlier on this year. This has no shimmer to it unlike Peach Parfait therefore the colour is much more bold if that makes sense. On the lips I find this can look quite natural if applied lightly whereas if you want more colour this can be easily achieved.

Overall I really do rate these lip products from Revlon. They're incredibly moisturising I think which is something I find hard to say with many lip products as most tend to dry my lips out. The one thing I would say is that they don't last that long on me to be honest, as I find after a few hours they do need reapplying however for a product that I'm pretty much obsessed with I can't say that I mind this. 

These are available at Superdrug and Boots for £7.99.

    1. Wild Watermelon is lovely, it came out quite heavy on the swatch because it had melted and I hadn't realised but it is still very pigmented xx

  10. I've just bought Wild Watermelon and I don't like it as much as I thought I would... maybe the colour doesn't suit me, I don't know. But I think Juicy Papaya would be perfect for me xx

  12. I have Juicy Papaya and it is such a gorgeous, subtle shade. I didn't expect Wild Watermelon to be so vivid! I love the shade and I like that because of the formula it would be very wearable on the lips. I'm tempted to pick up a few more of these in the future xx

  17. I want to try Juicy Papaya. It looks like such a fun but easy to wear shade.
    By the way, I recently noticed that you mention what's cruelty free and what's not which I absolutely love because that's always a fact that I look out for in brands and products. Thank you for including that! :)

  24. Usually I'm not drawn to pink but I really like the Strawberry Shortcake color! The lip butters are way more pigmented than I ever thought they were. I like the Maybelline vivids too :) You should try them out. I have Brazen Berry and it's amazing.
