Revlon Lip Butter in Crème Brulee - Review

So the Revlon Lip Butters have finally hit British soil but again not without problems,
it seems they have still to be rolled out in many stores if Twitter is anything to go by.
My tip is check the smaller Boots stores as that is where I found mine,
okay there was only 7 shades but they had plenty of stock so it is worth a try?
Also Glasgow ladies there was plenty of stock in the Sauchiehall Street store.
I apologise for all the lip butter reviews and thank you all for hanging around :)
but we have reached the end....woooo!
The full swatch gallery should be up on Monday .

Sadly the UK will only be receiving 14 of the 20 shades that are available in the US/Canada,
I have provided a list of shades that will be available in UK for reference purposes - link.
Once I pick up the last shade Frosting I will compile a full swatch chart/gallery.
Much like the other products by Revlon these little lip wonders come packaged complete
with the quilted design on the plastic outer sleeves, it gives a slight high end feel.
Each shades packaging matches the shade inside, I do like a bit of colour coordination!
In my opinion the casing is pretty, practical and sturdy which is all I can ask for.

Revlon Crème Brulee is the UK's token nude shade - Brown Sugar looks better 
but it was not one of the 14 shades that made the UK cut sadly...oh well!
Creme Brulee is a mid toned yellow based brown shade that is glossy in finish.
In my opinion it is a slightly more yellow and less pigmented version of Mac Viva Glam 2.
As a nude lipstick fan I really wanted to like this shade but just couldn't get to grips with it,
it is too yellow based and pale to be flattering on my skin tone bit this may be a great shade
for paler/cooler skin tones?

The formula of these is something else, I had no idea I would enjoy wearing these quite as much as I do!
Generally speaking the shades are well pigmented and glide on very much like a traditional lip balm.
Yet they superior colour pay off in comparison to a standard tinted lip balm.
Each shade gives a semi-opaque coverage of colour with a light glossy finish,
they are very moisturising and comfortable to wear.
I liken these a little to Mac Cremesheen lipsticks as they feel and wear very similar on my lips,
obviously each one of us will have different results but this is what they remind me of.
The Revlon Lip Butters have a very mild typical lipstick scent but nothing noticeable when worn.
I found these to wear around 2-3 hours some shades wore longer than others
but they are not exactly long lasting.
Overall I am very impressed with these lipstick/lip balm hybrids!

Product Summary
Round Up - A great combination of lipstick and lip balm that gives the best of both worlds.
Best For - Fans of tinted lip balms or light moisturising lip coverage!
Pigmentation - Generally 7/10 but really great for what it is.
Availability - These hit the UK mid March, available via Boots
£7.99 each or 3 for 2 - link
