Revlon Lip Butters in Creme Brulee, Lollipop, and Tutti Fruitti

Revlon’s Lip Butters – I know you’ve probably read a million and one posts about these already so I’ll try to keep this brief.

L to R with flash: Creme Brulee, Tutti Frutti, Lollipop
Attracted by Boots’ current 3 for 2 offer on cosmetics, I decided to pick a few of the Lip Butters.  Stock however were not great, and there wasn’t much choice to be had, with many of the popular colours sold out. In the end, I decided to go for two brights and a nude. 

L to R without flash: Creme Brulee, Tutti Frutti, Lollipop
Starting with the nude, Crème Brulee.   This is an almost invisible shade on my pigmented lips which gives them a very slight shimmer. I am not normally a big fan of nude lippies, however I found this one very easy to wear and I didn’t feel it washed me out, rather it gave me a natural, polished look. All the Lip Butters give a noticeable sheen to the lips, however I found this to be the most subtle with regards to the shiny lips look and it was certainly more of a balm. If you are fond of a my-lips-but-better look or if you prefer a really simple, neutral look, this would be a good choice for you. Wear time was around an hour and a half, which, considering this is a balm / lipstick hybrid is to be expected. 


Next is Tutti Fruitti, a vibrant coal / orange which is a fabulous shade for summer. I adore coral shades and although this leans more orange, it is certainly very wearable, especially with a summer tan. I think I will be getting a lot of use out of this one! Lasting time with this one was around two and a half hours, with the shine disappearing first after an hour, leaving a stain which was still very pigmented. 

Finally, I purchased Lollipop, a blue tinged fuchsia with subtle sparkly shimmer. The shimmer isn’t overly noticeable, but it gives a gorgeous iridescent look on the lips. I believe this is certainly one of the bolder shades in the range as it is very pigmented.  It had a  wear time similar to Tutti Fruitti of two and a half hours before I needed to reapply. 


Verdict
Predictably, I am going to give these top marks as although I initially was skeptical about their ability to deliver after all the hype surrounding them, I was wrong. All three deliver excellent pigmentation, are super comfortable to wear and although lasting time isn’t overly long, it is as expected for a balm / lipstick hybrid. I would stress, however, that despite being non-drying, these lippies are not a substitute for balm, and you will still need to apply this separately if you want smooth, soft, kissable lips! As for my favourite, I would have to say it is Tutti Fruitti, a gorgeous wearable orange which looks super juicy on the lips. I’m certainly going to be looking at more of the range when my local Boots restocks!

  3. The colors look very much tempting esp the Tutti fruitti. I would love to get hold of these since the dose of moisture would do me good as my lips are dry
