The Revlon Colour Burst Lip Butters landed in the UK a few weeks back but I've only just had a chance to take a look at them. I've seen loads and load of reviews all mixed and most of them in comparisons with the L'Oreal Rouge Caresse lipsticks which I'm yet to have a look at.
Colours Available in the UK:
Pink Truffle, Sugar Frosting, Raspberry Pie, Tutti Frutti,
Peach Parfait, Candy Apple, Macaroon, Berry Smoothie,
Cupcake, Lollipop, Strawberry Shortcake, Sweet Tart,
Creme Brulee, Cotton Candy.
The shades have super cute names however I'm not impressed with the shade range itself from looking at them in person. None of them seemed to appeal to me apart from one; Raspberry Pie and even then I still have my hesitations about it...
All the Lip Butters are highly pigmented and are more like your conventional, everyday lipstick. You definitely need a mirror for application where as the L'Oreal Rouge Caresse lipsticks give you a nice wash of colour from what I've seen in reviews.
From a personal perspective I think the Lip Butter shades aren't suited to my skin tone. I have very naturally pigmented lips and I don't think the colour I have looks right on me! If I'm being completely honest I think the shades are more suited to fairer skin tones but that's just my opinion.
Many people have said that they've had difficulties with applying their Lip Butters however I can't say I've had this problem, in fact I found the application very easy! One major thing I dislike about the Lip Butters apart from the shade range is that they're very sticky. On a more positive note the colour does last on the lips well and eventually when it does start to wear off, your left with a 'lip tint' kind of effect.
The Lip Butter is definitely a love / hate product for me, I suppose with the good comes the bad but I just feel like i've wasted £7.99 on a product which I'll have to work very hard with (i.e wearing a lipliner underneath) as opposed to wearing it effortlessly which is the point with Lip Butters right...?
