I actually purchased the revlon first, was unimpressed then on my recent trip to my local CVS i saw these. The color I got was nourshing nude and since my lips are already very pigmented, it looked like my lips only better w/ an incredible amount of shine and just a smidge pinkier. It's a great balm and that would be the only use for it IMO. As far as a lipstick goes, I would like something w/ more pigment, therefore I would not reach for this if I were going out.
Other than that, it's a great product and thumbs up to Loreal for coming up with more innovative products!
I purchased this in "Nourishing Nude" and honestly expected it to be another "lip butter" like Revlon's. Whereas Revlon's Lip Butters are more like moisturing lipsticks, L'Oreal's Le Balms are more like glossy, tinted balms. Nourishing Nude imparted only the slightest pinky nude color to my lips.I would imagine someone with highly pigmented lips might not see anything other than shine on their lips. While I am happy with my purchase, these aren't really pigmented enough in my opinion. I've collected 7 of Revlon's Lip Butters, but won't be purchasing additional shades of the Le Balm. It's not a bad product, I just prefer more color and variety of shades.
I love these. Pink satin took my tinted balm virginity. Which is a beautiful pink which is pretty colorless when actually on my lips. But they feel good and packaging is nice and I'm not usually someone who cares about that. BUT the limited edition sundays by the scene is by far my most favorite!!! It's a blue that shows up just enough on my lips that non makeup days are perfect for. Not to many limited edition drug store products that I get upset there not permenant....
I picked this up since I couldnt find revlons lip butter. overall, this is just ok. it has a slight cotton candy scent that disappears once you apply it and it tastes like sunscreen (it has spf 15 which is nice). i got the shade "nourishing nude" which isnt a nude but more of a mlbb color without shimmer. the color doesnt really show up on my lips, it just leaves a hint with a suble shine. the texture is ok, it has a little slip. i was looking something more with a balm feeling with more pigmentation. overall, not worth the 8 something i paid for. i could get the same look from a cheap gloss with not much pigmentation or shine. wont repurchase.
I put this product under lip treatments because even though it looks like a lipstick, it's actually more of a lip balm like the name suggests. Most of the shades are a light tint and it has shea butter, rose oil, and argan oil in the ingredients. I chose Plush Plum because it's the most pigmented. Update: I keep buying these because I'm addicted to the shade Rose Elixir. It goes with everything and gives a soft pink rose tint to your lips. On me these last long enough to keep my lips soft. The oils in it nourish your lips instead of sitting on top like a typical balm. If you have problems with basic balms not working during the winter, give these a try.
I do prefer these ones instead of the revlon one's although i love those ones too. I feel that these L'Oreal ones are more moisturizing. Alsto for me there is no taste or smell. I purchased mine at a CVS for $8.00.
I do have to admit that it is on the sheer side and it is way more glossy then the Revlon one's. If you are a person who likes just a tiny tiny hint of color these lip balms will be a hit...
This are more moisturizing IMO than the Revlon butters. Unfortunately they do not have the color payoff that Revlon has. Extremely sheer and you can taste the SPF in the balm. They are not horrible, but I do wish they were more pigmented and didn't have the chemical taste.
I found this at Walmart for 7.96CAD when I was looking for more Revlon lip butters. I purchased the shade Pink Satin, which is a sheer but buildable soft neutral pink. Glides on super smooth and and makes my lips look juicy and plump. The only con is that I found it wearing off after around 1-2 hours and it left my lips slightly dry (I have super flaky lips though). Tried putting regular lip balm first and then the Balm and it worked much better. Slightly cotton candy sweet smell that doesn't linger. Packaging is gorgeous and I like that the applicator is smaller than the Revlon lip butters since I have smaller lips. The only thing is that the lid can only close if it is lined up properly. I will use this and enjoy it but for the price I think I'd rather get a Revlon lip butter!
I bought this in shade Caring Coral from Walmart because I haven't been able to get my hands on the revlon lip butters. I am thoroughly dissapointed in this and wish I didn't spend my money on such a cheaply made product. This is like a greasy, oily chapstick with a tint of color. The packaging makes it look nice and expensive and I thought oh this will be sooo much better than the baby lips I bought... but I was wrong. I put it on and it looked like a slippery mess on my lips. I paid under $6 for it at walmart because it is on sale right now but I would not repurchase even if it was marked down to clearance prices.
I got this in the rose elixir shade. The packaging is very pretty with a gold bottom and a cap the color of your shade with gold lettering. After wearing all day my lips felt nearly as moisturized as if I had been wearing a regular lipbalm. The texture is thin with a smooth slip to it. Rose elixir is an ultra sheer rosy pink shade with a very fine shimmer that you wouldn't notice unless you were standing right in front of a mirror. It looks very natural. Almost to the point where you can barely even tell you have it on. After reapplying several times during the day I did see the pigment build on my lips but to be honest lip smackers gives better color saturation. I had swatched a few of the other colors when I purchased this one and the darker ones are definately more pigmented. I will be going back to purchase those soon. So, yes to repurchasing but not in any of the lighter shades since there isn't significant enough color payoff to warrant the price.
