Review: Revlon Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake

Oh hey bandwagon! So yes, I know you have probably read a hundred and one reviews on the Revlon Lip Butters, but I'll give you my two pennies worth!

Now, you will know that these little babies have caused quite a stir in the beauty world, and I've finally, after weeks of asking in my local Boots and Superdrug, got my hands on some!

The first review is going to be of the shade Strawberry Shortcake.

Strawberry Shortcake- L

Buttery balm with beautiful shiny colour to give you baby soft, healthy glowing lips

They all have adorable food related names.

Strawberry Shortcake is a bright pink with blue undertones, and a hint of lilac in some lights.

When on the lips, it is a beautiful, wearable colour, for all skin types.

Generally, this are incredibly pigmented, and glide on the lips like a dream! They are very moisturising, and do not dry out the lips. They are easy to wear throughout the day, and are not sticky like some lip products can be.

The Lip Butters don't have a scent as such, but do we really need a nice smelling lipstick? Yes, its a nice benefit, (MAC lipsticks smell lovely) but, the fact of the matter is, you cant smell it when its on your lips!

They aren't very hard wearing, compared to some products. Your looking at about 4-5 hours, depending on what your doing, so you might want to carry it with you for touch ups. (Although be wary, as they will melt in heat)!

You don't get a lot of product for the money, about 2cm, which I suppose isn't too bad, but if your wearing them on a daily basis, you may find them going down pretty quickly!

The packaging is very sleek and the quilted, 'Chanel like' front adds extra sophistication.
The top is see-through, so you can see the product through the lid, which I think is a nice idea, so you can see which lipstick it is!
The packaging is similar to the Revlon Lipsticks, but only more sheer.
They are £7.99 to buy, and are available in Boots and Superdrug.

Boots currently has a 3 for 2 offer on.

Overall, I am so impressed with them. They are the perfect mixture of a lipstick, and lip balm!

What are your thoughts?
