My post today is about the infamous Revlon Lip Butters. The hype started long before they were released on our fair island, and needless to say I was excited to try them. In true Boots style they arrived in my local store about two weeks after general release for the rest of the country. They were put out on salesplan at a very good time 3 for 2 and my local store had 7 to choose from.
To the best of my knowledge, although I could be wrong I believe 14 shades out of a possible 21 are available in the UK/Ireland,
Altogether I have 10 shades. It may seem a bit excessive but makeup is my hobby and most of them were bought through Boots points and all were on 3 for 2 as I previously mentioned.
These were the shades that I thought most wearable, for me at least. I find the texture of these a little strange... Almost grainy. Most are very well pigmented, others quite subtle. In all honesty I have been reaching for these a lot more than my old reliable lipsticks. I have also found that pairing these over a lipstick for meetings or events really spruce up whatever look I have gone for, an example of one of my favourite's would be pairing the lip butter 'Cotton Candy' with MAC's 'Snob'. Has anyone else tried a combination look? If so please let me know!

Excuse the quality of these two pictures but the flash on washed the swatches out.

As you can see some are more subtle colours, and others quite pigmented.

The colours are showing up quite washed out here, but there really are some beautiful shades here. I would love to see them bringing some more shades out both here and the UK.
All in all I'm really enjoying the lip butters, they are expensive but I think its justifiable when they're on 3 for 2 don't you? ;) At least that's what every addict tells themselves to justify the splurge...
Thanks for reading lovlies, I hope you enjoyed!
Till next time, stay beautiful.
