Revlon Lip Butters: the tinted balm I can't get enough of

Monday, September 14, 2015

I know when to admit that I have a problem... And that moment was when I knew I had a bunch of the Revlon Lip Butters, but didn't know just how many until I gathered them for this post. Now that I've 'fessed up, let's dive into exactly why I keep buying them!

First and foremost, I am a lip balm girl. I use a balm more than any lipstick, lipgloss, or lipstain that I own. It's the ease of a balm that really appeals to me. The quick slap on, knowing that if it wears off I don't need to touch it up unless I want to, and the hydration that it gives my lips. Enter the Revlon Lip Butters. They're the more refined version of a typical lip balm- they do all the things that a balm does, but they also provide a nice sheen and wash of color to the lips. 

Out of all of the shades that I own, I seem to gravitate towards the lighter, more sheer colors most often. Must be that fuss-free thing, again. My hands-down favorite, and most recent addition is Cotton Candy (as seen in my August favorites). It's a cool-toned pink that's a perfect color for me. I carry it around everywhere, which, for me, is a clear cut sign of a winner. Juicy Papaya, a light coral, and Strawberry Shortcake, a baby pink, have been go-to shades for me all summer. They're such easy colors to finish off a any makeup look, since they go with almost any eyeshadow and blush you could choose for the day.

If a red lip is what you're looking for, but you don't want the extreme commitment of a red red, then Candy Apple is what you need. A light wash of red, but not too intense. Of all the shades I've tried, Lollipop is my least favorite, solely because of the ridiculous amount of glittery bits in it. That glitter makes it look terrible on it's own (who wants glitter chunks on their lips?), but topped off with a pigmented gloss, it makes a nice bright pink base.

As we're moving into fall, Raspberry Pie and Sugar Plum are great deeper colors for the seasonal change. Raspberry Pie is the deeper pink-toned berry shade that every lip collection needs. Sugar Plum is great for anyone who's loving the 90's trend being a dark purple with a heavy brown undertone.

The packaging is bright and fun and the names are honestly yummy! Since each tube is color coded you know which shade is which at a quick glance. The perpetually late lady in me loves that, since in so simple to find the one you're looking for within your lip stash (or hoard, as mine seems to have become...)

Have you tried the Revlon Lip Butters before? If you have, what's your favorite shade? Do you have any other tinted lip balms that you'd recommend?
