Revlon Lip Butters Review & Swatches






Creme Brulee, Sugar Frosting, Cotton Candy, Sorbet 


Revlon Lip Butters - Creme Brulee, Cotton Candy, Sugar Frosting & Sorbet - £7.99 here

Hi lovelies, hope you're all okay, if you saw my collective beauty haul on Sunday you would have seen I picked up my first Revlon Lip Butter shades, I got a lot of comments on that post from people saying that they thought the shades were really pretty so I thought I would dedicate a whole post to them so you could find out a bit more about them and see which shades I've been liking the most. Like I said in my haul post I had never tried a Revlon Lip butter before but they'd always been something i've heard a lot about from the blogging community and always been something i'm pretty interested in so I'm really glad I finally took the plunge and got my hands on them. I picked up four colours overall, Creme Brulee, Cotton Candy, Sugar Frosting (Sorry I annotated my picture wrong!) and Sorbet. I think all of them are from their normal collection apart from Sorbet which is one of the shades Revlon released as part of their recent Spring Collection.

The formula of the Revlon Lip Butters is something I really like and enjoy, I've never been someone that was really into lipstick into just a few months ago, now I love to experiment but I also find some of the more pigmented lipsticks quite hard to wear and I'd say i'm pretty rubbish at sporting the really 'out there' lip. These lip butters are absolutely perfect for that though, they are very sheer on first application and they are very glossy meaning that they are ridiculously easy for everyday wear and you can really just throw them on without a mirror. They're very sheeny and shiny which means they are super moisturizing on the lips and I find them really comfortable to wear. As I said they are very sheer and glossy on first application but you can really build them if you want more of a pigmented or statement lip, that's why I like them so much, I find that Sorbet which is the brightest colour can be built up and you can make it really bright but it's still super easy to wear because of the fact it has a really sheen and creamy finish which means it doesn't look too much. Also these are absolutely perfect for dry or dehydrated lips because this really won't settle into fine lines on the lips or dry patches and they will really work too smooth out your lips and make them look really perky and nice. I also think these Revlon Lip Butters are absolutely perfect as we come into Spring and Summer, especially as we get hotter weather because you can just quickly apply them and wear them and they have such cool shades that will work through the warmer months & look lovely on the lips. Anyway I thought I would do a run through of all of the different shades I picked up.

Creme Brulee
I love Creme Brulee, this was the lipstick that made me fall in love with the whole Revlon Lip butter range, this is the lipstick that I picked up first and I just think this is the absolute perfect lipstick for everyday. I've been looking for a really nice nude shade that I can wear every single day and also wear when I have a bit more of a smokey eye shadow look and I've found the absolute perfect shade. I can't even begin to explain how much love I have for this lipstick, I've never found a nude shade that actually suited me before but this one does and it really compliments my skin tone and it doesn't make me look dead at all (which is always nice!), I just really like this, this is the lipstick that I will carry around in my bag because I know whatever makeup look I am sporting or whatever I'm doing this will just be fool proof and never let me down on the lip front, I can just chuck this on whenever and wherever and I know that it will always look good. I just want to mention that the swatch of this lipstick is really built up and doesn't do it justice at all, on first application Creme Brulee looks really creamy and sheer and actually really like the swatch of Sugar Frosting (or Pink frosting as I like to call it). I just think that every girl needs to own a lipstick like this because it's pretty much perfect and I think this will be absolutely amazing in the Summer as well especially when it's worn with a tan. Revlon really got it right with this one.

Cotton Candy
Cotton Candy is probably my second favourite of the lip butters that I picked up, it's quite pink but it's a really nice pale, baby pink which could be worn pretty much everyday which is again why I like it so much. I find that I wear more of the wearable shades and therefore they are the ones I tend to go for. This shade is much more glossy than some of the other shades I've got and on the lips it looks pretty much like a really pretty pink gloss so is really complimentary. I find that if you build this up you can get quite a bright pink lip which you could wear more if you wanted to make a statement. The only problem that I have with this lip butter which I haven't had with the other lip butters is the fact that this one is broken, the lip butter doesn't twist up or down and is kind of stuck, I think I just got a duff one though so if you're picking this up make sure that you bare that in mind and test it first so you don't get one that's broke, it's not too much of an issue though just a bit annoying at times. I think this lipstick will work pretty much all year round and really makes your lips look full and glossy and I would recommend Creme Brulee & Cotton Candy to absolute everyone because they're just lovely shades that would work on absolutely everyone.

Sugar Frosting
Sugar Frosting is a really pretty frosty pink that really adds a nice sheen to the lips, if I'm completely honest Sugar Frosting is the one shade that I've picked up that slightly disappointed me a bit. I picked this up in a rush and I think I picked up the wrong shade because this is not the same lip butter that I swatched in store, I find the pigmentation of Sugar Frosting really poor and to be honest it takes a huge amount of work to get any colour payoff at all. It's pretty much just all gloss and no colour, I think this could work really nice with a tan or if you have a darker skin tone then mine you could probably pull this off and it would look really pretty on you. But for my skin tone it just seems to wash me out a little bit and although I will wear this I don't think it's going to become my favourite or the one I get the most use out of. This looks really similar too Cotton Candy in the tube but they are completely different on the lips, Cotton Candy has such a nice pale pink colour behind it and Sugar Frosting just has hardly any colour payoff. It is definitely a 'frosted' shade though and it kind of reminds me of a lip product an Ice Skater would wear? I don't know, I probably sound like a freak but hopefully you all get what I mean.

Sorbet
I love Sorbet, I love the name of Sorbet, the brightest of Sorbet, the colour payoff and just the shade it's self I think it's absolutely gorgeous and is such a brilliant lip butter. After purchasing and playing around with Sorbet I want to pick up some of the other lip butters that they released for the Spring Collection because it's gorgeous and as we get into Spring and Summer and hot weather I know this lipstick will just be constantly on my lips. This lipstick is just Summer in a tube for me, it's a bright pink shade which leans slightly red and it's just literally a really hot pink shade that is really bright and loud. Compared to all of the other lip butters I've tried this one has the most pigmentation and colour payoff and you hardly need any too get a really fun lip colour. I really like this because as I said before I'm really scared of bright lips and this is going to be a really nice colour to wear to intensify the lips but also has a really glossy finish meaning it's going to be much more flattering and wearable.

Overall, I honestly adore the Revlon Lip Butters, I just find them to really work for me, I really like the fact that they're glossy and you have to build up the colour which means during the day I can wear them a lot sheerer and then if i'm feeling brave I can build up the colour. I think the glossiness of them is really nice and makes them really wearable and I love that they're super creamy on the lips and moisturizing and just really comfortable too. I also love the packaging, I think it's really fun and nice and it's really lightweight so you can just chuck it in your bag and go. I also think that the packaging is cute because the lip butter tube matches the colour which means it's really easy to find the shade you're looking for when you're half asleep in the morning. I also really love the quilted design.

Anyway thanks for reading & let me know what you think of the Revlon Lip Butters!
Lots of love

  5. My favourite is Creme brulee. It is the perfect nude. Isn't too pale to make it look like you have been washed out but also isn't too dark. It is perfect. My other lipstick broke so I will be definitely repurchasing this shade nearer to summer.

  20. The Cotton Candy one is my favorite! I've been wearing it more often now that it's spring. I like to "waken" up my look with brighter lip colors as it helps when my face looks a little washed out.

  21. Oh my goodness you have made me want creme brulee sooo badly, I really might have to treat myself when I'm next near a boots or superdrug!! It sounds like the perfect shade that I've been looking for for summer :) I'm a huge fan of the lip butters, I brought peach parfait last summer and it's on its last legs now, I'm gonna be gutted when it runs out! I got 3 new ones the other day but I can't remember for the life of me which ones they were, I haven't actually used them yet cos I want to photograph them first :P
