Revlon Lip Butter

Revlon lip products are fantastic, they have the best drugstore lipsticks. Revlon lip butters are super moisturizing lipsticks. They have very soft creamy, buttery texture (duh!!! lip butter) and great color payoff.  It’s a 3in1 kind of product, these are perfect combination of lip balm, lipstick color and gloss all together in one.

On the Revlon website describe them as “Buttery Balm + Shiny Color
- Buttery balm with beautiful shiny color to give you baby soft, healthy glowing lips 94% of women felt lips were softer, smoother, and instantly hydrated. -Award winning
- Hydrating mango, shea and coconut butter formula boosts lip moisture by 156%
- Pampering gel formula provides super charged hydration and glides on lips buttery smooth.
- Sheer to medium color with buttery shine.
- Available in 20 luscious shades. “

They have a very light weight lip balm kind of feel on the lips but with a full on color like lipsticks. Some of the lighter shades are sheer but you can layer and make it bold. Almost all of the shades are wearable and glossy even the darker colors. These are NOT super-bright-over-the-top-Notice-me-now colors. They go on smooth with a lot of moisture and without accentuating cracks in lips. These do not have any major staying power but I don’t mind reapplying.

They have such yummy names like cream brulee, red velvet, peach parfait, cotton candy and so on. But unfortunately they don’t smell nor taste like their namesL. These are rather fragrance free and tasteless lip products. 

I have 2 of the 20 shades till now Cream Brulee and Red Velvet.

Revlon Lip Butter: Cream Brulee and Red Velvet

Revlon Lip Butter swatches:  Red Velvet on the left and Cream Brulee on the right

Cream Brulee: This is a peach nude color with golden shimmer.  It is your-lips-but-better kind of color. This is my go to everyday color.

Cream Brulee swatch

Red Velvet: This is wearable shade of red. Deeper brick red with a little bit of brown in it. If you are intimidated by red lips this is the color for you. This one doesn't have any shimmer. I absolutely love this color.

Oh and a word of caution they do behave like real butter so don’t leave them in your purse or car on a hot day or they will MELT. Also they are very soft in texture so they have a tendency to chip, smudge/smear in and around the tube (I don’t know if this line makes sense but my lip butter have smudges all over the metal tube part). So twist up only a little to apply.

Bottom line these are super hydrating lipsticks with more wearable lip colors. They cost $6.99-$8.00 depending on the store and they are made in USA.

Thanks for stopping.
