Remember the hype that surrounded the Revlon Lip Butters? Here’s my entire stash of them. I can see your surprise. Let me explain.
I used to have Creamsicle, but I sold it to my friend, Jin. Fig Jam, I gave to my sister, and Brown Sugar was up on my blog sale. I had my eye on a lot more colors but these aren’t CF so I never bought more.
What I do have, from L-R, are: Cotton Candy, Sweet Tart, Wild Watermelon*, Raspberry Pie, and Sugar Plum.
Sugar Plum is the first one I bought and it remains a favorite. That shade is the most appealing to me, and I find that it is the most hydrating and comfortable to wear. I think you can see what I mean from these swatches:
Cotton Candy is a bit on the lighter side and can translate a bit frosty. Sweet Tart is a little too pink for me, but I want to see how I can make it work. I actually really like Wild Watermelon, even if it isn’t something I would gravitate towards, as I’m quite picky with red lipsticks. Raspberry Pie is an awesome berry color, though it is a bit too thick and drying on the lips. Last but not the least, Sugar Plum, the one I’ll miss the most. This looks like a sheer blah, but trust that it is a gorgeous sheer-but-buildable berry that isn’t too pink.
Anyway, these are my lip butters! I like them a lot (love saved for Sugar Plum only), but I don’t think they are super must-haves. I think there are a few colors that really stand out. I guess if you’re looking for something easy to put on, wear, and forget about, these are great for that.
Are you a fan of these lip butters? What’s an alternative to these that you prefer?
* I received Wild Watermelon in a BDJ Box I was sent for free. Revlon is not cruelty-free.
