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 :)
only one after this to go and on Monday there will be a Lip Butter swatch gallery!
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 Sugar Frosting is one of those shades I knew I wouldn't like from the off set,
it is far too pale for me to wear alone and would best be used in my opinion over another shade.
Sugar Frosting is the palest of pink with a strong white undertone and has a frosty/shimmery finish.
On the lips it gives a white pink pearlescent finish - think mother of pearl and you'll get the idea.
In all honesty I don't find it all that flattering and fear the deeper your skin tone the worst it will look!
I struggled to get this to show up on my skin so there is no arm swatch for this shade...sorry.
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!
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.
