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?
Oh and instore (Boots) these are not 2 for £10 but a 3 for 2 offer!

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.
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 Lollipop Lip Butter is a bright pink with a very strong blue undertone
on my lips which are not all that pigmented it is quite intense given what it is (lip balm hybrid)
and has superb colour pay off on light lips.
The blue tone is rather strong and in some lights this shade appears more purple than pink,
this shade also has tiny particles of silver glitter running throughout.
I'm sure this is one the few shades in the Lip Butter line that will show up on any shade of lip
be they pigmented or not?
In some ways Lollipop reminds me of Mac Girl About Town only this shade has
a stronger blue undertone and is slightly more glossy in finish.

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!
