Revlon Lip Butter - Review

Revlon lip butter in sweet tart review

As of late, I have been on a search for the perfect 'summer shade' that brings a lovely colour to my lips but also hydrates them at the same time. After hearing bloggers everywhere (mostly Tanya Burr) rave about the Revlon Lip Butters, I thought this may be the perfect thing for me so I went out and purchased the shade 'Sweet Tart', somewhat persuaded by the cuteness of the name. It took me longer than I care to admit when picking out a shade as they all seemed to bright and 'out-there' for me as I am pretty concious when it comes to wearing bright colours on my lips. This shade seemed to be one of the more subtle ones out there, even though it clearly doesn't look quite subtle! I took the plunge anyway and, to my suprise, it became a staple to my make-up collection!

The packaging itself shows the quality of the product: with the somewhat sturdy silver base and the plastic pink casing, I really like how expensive this felt in my make-up bag. It doesn't have the feel of a typical cheap lip balm or a lipgloss packaging, but remineded me more of a lipstick, which I really like. 

When applying the product, it has a lovely buttery texture that just slides onto my lips without feeling heavy. This shows it really is great for dry lips that can't handle the drying formula of regular lipsticks, instead giving both a sheen finish with a flush of colour that you can build of as you wish.
However, for me it is this buttery application that compromises on the lasting power, as I can go around 2-3 hours before needing to reapply. The pigmentation does make up for that, as unlike most butters these genuinly give a shot of colour if thats the look that you're going for. 

Overall, I do love this lip butter, although I do wish there were more subtler shades but I can understand the need for bright colours as it is this that makes them perfect for the summer. The texture and application is actually lovely, much better than the Maybelline Baby Lips (review here) in terms of pigmentation and moisture.

For the price I don’t think you can go wrong, so I would definitely recommend this, especially for summer time wear. It’s also a really good transition for people moving on from lip balms to lipsticks.
You can buy the Revlon lip butters from Superdrug.
