Review – Revlon Lip Butter

So I know I’m really late to the hype of these but I didn’t feel I wanted one until a £3 off Revlon products Boots Advantage card voucher pushed me over the edge. I went for the shade 027 Juicy Papaya, which is a coral-y pink shade. Perfect for summer.

First of all the package is gorgeous, while clearly trying to imitate higher end brands I love how you can tell what colour is what just from a quick glance. The clear portion on the top is a lovely touch too. In the tube they look bright and may put people off. But I found it to be really sheer. Almost too sheer, but that might be because I’m used to wearing heavily pigmented bright lip stains and lip sticks. 

Two or three coats - subtle glossy sheen

I found I needed at least three coats to build up a colour but the colour is really nice and subtle which I think makes a nice change. Although, I’d rather that it came off just a little brighter from the first swipe. The staying power is probably around an hour or so because of the formula. It’s really moisturising but you have to make sure you have prepped your lips as any dry bits I had were highlighted by this. 

I will definitely be wearing this on its own but its main use will be for a base for other lip products. Rather than living on my shelf this is a make-up product, which will probably mean it gets a lot of use in topping up during the day when whatever else I’m wearing has started to wear. Also, if I leave the house without lipstick I have a nice subtle colour that’s fool proof to apply. 

Overall, I would recommend these to beginners or people who don’t like strong lip colours. I want to look at some of the other colours for days when I want a less dramatic lip look. I have my eye on Candy Apple next.

Revlon Lip Butters are £7.99 and can be bought here or in Boots stores.
