We've all seen the Emma Stone ad campaign that not only made us green with envy at how pretty the American sweetheart is (I'm still getting over my jealously of her role with the beyond delicious Ryan Gosling in Crazy Stupid Love!) but it also made us lust after the 20 shades of buttery goodness that is the Revlon Lip Butter collection. Honestly, have you ever seen such a Spring-perfect array of pinks, pastels and corals that would have even the most ungirly-of-girls feel the desire to try them all?!
At first I was a little unsure of the 'lip butter' quality, thinking that this may make the lipstick a bit melty and gooey, but I couldn't resist the gorgeous colours for longer and opted for Sweet Tart, a subtle sheer peachy-pink. And boy is it delicious - a new favourite!
You see I am a lipsil addict. I re-apply my Strawberry Boots Lipsalve on average, every half-an-hour and can't bare my lips to feel dry or unmoisturised. So to mix a 'hydrating mango, shea and coconut butter formula that boosts lip moisture by 156%' with pops of colour...well you couldn't get a more perfect combo in my opinion.
The smooth, creamy texture makes this a pleasure to apply and the added hint of colour means you have a lipstick AND nourishing balm in one! Plus, the glossy finish gives a glowing shine that makes lips look completely kissable - edible even!
Sweet Tart is a a sweetheart of a colour. Not too bright, not too pale, it is what I'd call a midi-pink but you can build up your desired shade by re-applying - just be aware that because of its buttery formula, it can become slightly melted if over-used, left in a warm environment or held in your hand for too long. The amount of icky testers I've seen in drugstores that have been affected by the display lights!
The use of quilted pink packaging sets off this collection beautifully - I can see my lip product drawer being filled with these tubes! I think they are slightly high in price for a drugstore brand at £7.99, but at the moment both Boots and Superdrug have a 3 for 2 offer on Revlon so I'm certainly going to make the most of that. I'm lusting after Strawberry Shortcake, Candy Apple, and Berry Smoothie...but I wouldn't say 'no' to any of them!
Which is your favourite shade of Lip Butter?
