I'm sure by now, most of you are sick of seeing posts about Revlon Lip Butters.
Honestly, I was pretty sick of them myself not too long ago to the point where I promised myself I would never buy one. But somehow one of these suckers found its way into my basket at Target... and then another... and another...
I just can't stop, okay!?
I mean really, lookit' these beauts!!:
Alright, I'll stop. But seriously, these are yummy to almost all the senses:
I only have six (haha, yes, I'm saying only...) of these beauties but I feel like the color range I have is perfect.
Take the jump below to see them swatched in all their glory!!
I love that the label, case, and actual lip product are all matching in color; makes selection easy!
Onto the swatches!!
040 Red Velvet
050 Berry Smoothie
015 Tutti Frutti
(Trust me, it's there... more on that later)
095 Creme Brulee
There you have it, my six lip butters; I love all but one for different reasons. Red Velvet is great for a vampier look, Berry Smoothie is my absolute favorite (and the one I get complimented on constantly) as a natural lip enhancing color, Lollipop is a great pink for a cute touch of color, Tutti Frutti is a statement but since it's a sheer tint of orange it's perfect for an added quirk in your outfit, Creme Brulee is a perfect nude...
Everything I wanted Creamsicle to be (but it wasn't).
Left: Creamsicle, Right: Creme Brulee. See the difference?
On me, Creamsicle is terrifying. Essentially, I'll know what my lips will look like on my death bed when all of the blood has been sucked from my features (too much?). It really is almost IDENTICAL to my skin color which makes my lips look like they're not even there; creepy!! I thought it would be a cute pastel orangey-pink but NOPE. Not on this Italian girl.
But aside from that one rant, I really do love and endorse these as often as possible. They feel great in your hand and on your lips, can be built up for a more opaque color or applied sheer for a natural tint, look extremely chic (a grown-up version of Lip Smacker), and are just a great alternative for lipstick when you're not feeling like being super high-maintenance that day.
Here's some more beauty p0rn for your viewing pleasure:
Here you can see the flecks of sparkle that make some of these colors really shine (in Lollipop)!
If all of my fingers were replaced with Revlon Lip Butters, my art career would be 100x more challenging but I can't say I would be 100% disappointed.
Thanks so much for reading!!
Do you have any other colors that I should put at the top of my list to purchase next?
