REVIEW: Revlon Lip Butters

Don't forget to enter my blog giveaway! Click here to enter now! Open until January 25, 2012.




After all the hype that was going around about these lip butters I finally got my hands on some. Ulta.com was having a sale of buy one get one 50% off so I bought 4. And just recently I saw that my local Walmart started carrying these so I bought a few more since it was the cheapest place I could find them. I wanted to try them out to see what the whole hype was about. I'm sure I'm late on this post because everyone else has probably reviewed them but whatever. I live in Hawaii & we get everything late so cut the girl some slack ;P Now onto the review.

Product name:
Revlon Lip Butters
Purchased at: ulta.com & Walmart
Product price: $6-8 (depending on store)

Product claims:

- 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 colour with buttery shine
- Available in 20 luscious shades

Would I re-purchase? Yes.

Final thoughts: With over 20 shades available for purchase I certainly don't think anyone needs all 20. I personally like the brighter colors out of the bunch rather than the neutral ones. The neutral shades tend to be a bit sheer for my taste & they all tend to look the same on the lip. My favorites out of the ones that I have are Lollipop, Red Velvet & Raspberry Pie. I find that these colors are really pigmented & had the longest staying power, especially Red Velvet. I think these 3 colors are going to be constant re-purchases for me. As for the other colors, they're not a really big deal to me. They are moisturizing but I've tried other products that moisturized my lips better. The moisture died down after a few hours of wear. They do have a glossy finish to them. I like that you don't have to put a gloss on top of these. All in all, most of these were a hit & miss for me. I don't hate them yet I don't love them. Actually, I love the 3 that I mentioned above & the rest were 'ok' to me. Price wise -- I thought they were more on the expensive side for a drugstore lip product but being that they're lipsticks, lip balms & lip glosses all in one I guess that's what makes it seem affordable.

I'm sure everyone has tried these. What is your favorite shade? Did you go all out & buy every single shade? What are your thoughts on this product? Please share =)

Haha for sure Hawaii gets everything late. I picked these up while on vacation to the mainland and I pretty much agree with your post and review on these.

I picked up more neutral shades but I do adore red velvet a lot.

Great review. I agree with you on these. They're not a must have but there are a few decent ones. I have Pink Truffle and I do like it.
