I really, really wanted to like these, because I heard such great things about them. I bought them in two colors, Candy Apple and Berry Smoothie. I think the color range is great, and they have some really pretty shades. However, I didn't have a great experience with them.
I don't know if it's just me or if I got a bad couple of tubes, but these did not work well for me at all. They did not feel like a lip balm AT ALL when I put them on, which is really weird for a lip butter. I had to apply balm on my lips first to get a really smooth application.
The color payoff is pretty good. The color doesn't stay for very long, but I didn't expect that. The main problem I had is that this butter doesn't keep my lips moisturized at all. Like, I had dead flaky skin come up a few hours later, which doesn't happen with any of my other Revlon lip products.
I'm disappointed with these, because of all the rave reviews I've seen. I'll probably pick up one more in a different store just to be sure I didn't get a bad batch, but if I have the same experience, I'll just give them away to a friend.
The formula of this kind of reminds me of a less moisturizing EOS balm. It is a waxy lip balm with a little color. It doesn't moisturize the lips well and doesn't sink into your lips. The only thing I can really see this product being good for is using it as a foundation for some other lip product like lipstick. It doesn't have a good color payoff (I know that is not the intention with this) but it doesn't moisturize well enough. If I wanted a tinted balm that moisturizes well, I usually go with Fresh Lip Treatments. Those ones actually moisturize and have a nice color payoff.
they are pretty pigmented for lip butters that arnt lip sticks. they are extremely smooth to apply, my only con would be that they are so soft that they move around in the lip stick holder so sometimes it will rub against the holder and smudge onto the applicator. you do need to reapply this quite often.
I bought a set at myer which contained three Revlon lip butters and compact mirror. It was $30 at the names of the lip butters were sugar plum, lollipop and peach parfait.Each of them were fantastic colors and soft.
I have the colors strawberry shortcake, berry smoothie, raspberry pie, peach parfait, cupcake, and cotton candy. the last two really don't look good with my skin tone so I don't ever wear them, so make sure you look up swatches online before purchasing and don't get overly excited like some people have. also i found that the last two were very sheer and apply way more sheer then the darker colors so not all of them have a good color payoff. another thing to note is that these lip butters aren't that long lasting which is good if you want to switch lip colors later on during the day but not good if you don't want to touch up too much. they are also kind of expensive for a drugstore product (7 to 8 dollars at most drugstores for not that much product). however I love the other colors I have, my favorite being berry smoothie. I love how these make my lips hydrated and a bit glossy but still gives them color! I highly recommend these
I own 4 of these. Peach Perfait, Strawberry shortcake, Raspberry pie and Sugar Plum. I really like that they are moistruzing and pigmented, but Peach Perfait which is a gorgeous shade has some glitter in it and I really don't like that! The packagain is not really great, because you get the lip butter smashed all over the edge. But I would really recommend these lip butters, they are super great most of them!:)
I have these in Strawberry Shortcake and Candy Apple, and I really like them! They are pretty much coloured lipbalms.
I believe that my lips are actually quite sensitive, but these don't make them peel or dry them out (you know those lipbalms that actually dry out your lips rather than soften them?)
They don't last a very long time on the lips, but Revlon does describe them as balms, so I don't think you can complain about them not being very long lasting. But they have amazingly good pigmentation, and they feel very nice and comfortable on the lips. I bought mine in London, but if I were able to buy them here where I live, I most definitely would buy more. Also, the packaging is very pretty, and I really like that I am able to tell the colour of the product by just looking at the packaging.
I have this in #080 Strawberry Shortcake. It comes out a very bright pink. Think Barbie lips, and you've got it. It's a fun color for me, because I'm pretty pale and can just pull it off.
I wish I had this in more colors, because I love the way it feels on my lips. It's very creamy, and it makes my lips feel super moisturized. This is especially good for the winter, because I have very dry skin, especially during those months.
It lasts longer than I expected for this type of lip color. It isn't sticky, though. Obviously it doesn't last like a longwear lipstick, but it doesn't just wipe off immediately like some similar type lipsticks I have.
I bought these on sale at Ulta a few days ago in Fig Jam and Sugar Plum. I liked the colors and the soothing feel of these on my dry, cracked lips. I say that because since the winter has come even the shiniest lip glosses show up my lip issues but this didn't.
Granted, this is a good product. Some colors are sheer, some offer semi-opaque beautiful coverage. As a WOC (NW45), I love that there are more than enough colors to keep me satisfied. However, I don't find this product any more extraordinarily ground breaking than Cover Girls oldie but goodie Lipslicks (the only tinted lipcolor I was allowed to wear in high school.
If it's on sale, I'd buy it again.
Basically they are tinted lip balms thats why they don't last long. They definitely don't worths 7.49 i think its expensive for this product even though i really like them. Ulta often has very good promotions on Revlon products like buy 2 get one free or 40% off + they always have 3.50 or 5$ off so i usually try to buy these when they have one of these good promotions and i get 3 lip butters for like 10$
