Review: Revlon Lip Butters

I bought these beauties in my first purchase from a blog sale as they were cheaper than in the shops and I'd been wanting to try them for a while as I've seen many other bloggers rave about them. I purchased two, one in the shade 'Cupcake' which is a very wearable shade and really great for the day, and the second in 'Raspberry Pie' a gorgeous deep reddy pink, which looks great in the evening but also in the day with just lashings of mascara to make the colour pop and stand out. I am pleased to say that I was not disappointed and these lip butters really lived up to they hype. Although the colour doesn't have the greatest staying power, once it has worn off it still leaves a lovely stain on the lips. I love that it is nourishing to my lips as the formula is so creamy and glides on easily. In my opinion it is a lipbalm, lipstick and lipgloss all rolled into one product. The packaging is also sleek, compact and pretty and they are easy to pop into my handbag. They are priced at £7.99 at Boots and although they are a bit pricey for the size, I would have no problem repurchasing as I think the rest of the product is great. Apologies for the not so great swatches, I found it tricky to get an accurate colour!

Other colours I have my eye on include 'Tutti Frutti' 'Lollipop' 'Macaroon' 'Candy Apple' and 'Berry Smoothie' ... I think you can tell I really like them! Have you tried any of these before? I would also like to try the Revlon Just Bitten sticks too xxx

Edit: I just bought the shade 'Creme Brulee' too :)
