I have quite the obsession with lip products, and the other day I had a proper look at my little make-up bag that I carry with me, and it was crammed full of different lip products, and the only other item I had was my face powder and a mirror. So I thought I'd do a review on the Revlon ones I have, which I've been using since they launched in South-Africa.
Revlon Lip Butters in Creme Brulee, Creamsicle and Sugar Frosting:
As you can see I've used quote a bit of these lippies and what a delight they are, the best way for me to describe them is to say that they're more of a tinted lip balm. And I see where they got the word butter from, because it feels very buttery and moisturising. You can see from the swatches that these aren't very pigmented, it does have a medium colour pay-off ,but is not to be compared to a lipstick. I feel that the consistency is between a lipstick and a lipgloss, and all three of these have a slight shimmer to them, and looks really pretty on ~ If you're not a big fan of lipsticks/lipglosses these will be perfect for you. I also adore the packaging, and have to say that the colour on the lids are real to the lip butter colour. I love all three of these, they look gorgeous alone or with a lipgloss over them.
The only thing I wish they'd done was to make them scented, now you may know that I adore nice smelling products, and the names of these sounds so delicious that I really expected it to smell of something, but really it doesn't. Overall this is a staple product to have in your make-up bag, and I definitely want to try some of the other colours available.
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Precious:
This looks like a really gorgeous nude-mauve colour, and has been reported as being a dupe for the Clinique Chubby Sticks, but in reality they're nothing alike. Initially when putting this colour on my lips it looks okay, it's a very natural colour but not very nude. The smell is awful though, it's got a minty scent mixed with powder ~ not cute! The downside is when removing this balm, my lips have a strange brown/red stain on them, overall I just don't like the consistency of this, and nothing really made me feel excited about it. So this is unfortunately one product I won't be repurchasing.
Have you tried any of these Revlon products, and what did you think of them? And if you enjoyed this post please remember to subscribe to my blog and always stay fabulous.
