Since I'm the most indecisive person ever I literally stood in front of the selection of these lip butters trying to decide which one to get for a good ten minutes before settling on Raspberry Pie. I'm so glad that it's the color I picked! It's a fuschia-like, deeper color that I can actually get away with layering on my lips without looking like a clown. Also, I love that it keeps my lips moisturized like a balm while having the pigmentation of lipstick. Like someone else mentioned I cannot STAND the packaging. It is way too easy to smear it all around the top of the silver tube, especially if you don't like twisting your lipsticks up too high to use them (I hate it). It also wears off kinda quick; people who wish this color wasn't so bold would be happy about it since it gets much lighter. Still though, I definitely want to rebuy this as well as try out some other shades (I want to get more into neutral shades but with a warm skin tone I'm not sure how it would look).
i'm rating this full marks, but i would not buy this shade again. Raspberry Pie is a darkish fuchsia. i bought this dreaming of a fuchsia, just bitten stain - which i CAN achieve with this when i apply it really lightly, but then it's just drying because it's not applied enough to moisturise (a previous reviewer mentioned this too). so then i may as well have just bought a lipstick. when i apply this heavily, it feels amazing on my lips - SO moisturising. but then the colour is not at all wearable for me personally (i like heavy eye make-up).
i rated the packaging down because it smears and gets damaged easily. unless you wind it up loads, it smears all over the silver tube when you apply it.
lastly, i really dislike scentless lip products. i know some people like that, but it's a big turn off for me. i wore this all day yesterday (sheer with lip balm) and then when i used one of my MAC lipsticks today i was so pleasantly struck by the baked vanilla scent. also because these butters have such yummy foodie names, it's so misleading that they smell of nothing? maybe that's just me, but i wish they smelt like their names!
overall, these definitely are unique in my opinion but you must find a colour that you are confident to slap on generously on to bare lips!
What a gorgeous color! I have recently been obsessed with the whole tinted lip balm craze, and this may be my favorite of them all. Raspberry Pie is a deep, reddish color. I would say it is even sort of a dark fuschia. I have very fair skin and I think it complements my tone a lot. The only bad thing about it is that it is not super moisturizing unless I apply a lot of it. And for everyday wear....well, I don't want to apply a lot because I don't want the really bold look it gives everyday. I have noticed, however, that even though it doesn't moisturize too much, it doesn't dry my lips out either, which is a huge plus. It also doesn't leave any type of nasty residue on my lips like some other lip products tend to do. It just leaves a very nice raspberry stain on my lips. It is a very flattering color and I love it because it doesn't have any sort of sparkle.
I would describe the finish like a matte lip balm. This does not tend to look very glossy on my lips. I would recommend it!
One of my favorites of the Lip Butter colors!
For reference I have fair skin (second to lightest usually), reddish brown hair, brown eyes, pigmented lips (so I usually like the darker lip colors - I like Red Velvet and Fig as well)...
This color is a sheer darkish bright pink, almost fuschia. Pinks sometimes don't look right on me - I usually like warmer toned makeup - but this one looks pretty good because it is dark enough (I hate pale lip colors on my pigmented lips).
I absolutely adore these! Raspberry pie is my one and only lip butter. (Yes I would like some more eventually.) I was so attracted to the smooth look of the product. Lovely packaging :). Honestly, the consistency is marvelous, so smooth and clean, and a slight transparent touch? Really awesome.
This is a great berry shade - not too much though like Lollipop could be for some people. My 75 mom rocks this shade, and I like it on me too for a bit of pop but not anything too far out.
I do love all the Revlon lip butters for my older lips.
They are moisturizing for me, don't feel like I am wearing lipstick (don't feel heavy). Biggest down side is frequent reapplication - lousy weartime, but
i am okay with that,
I'm surprised that I actually like this shade on me. It's a bright fuschia color & since I have a pale yellow-based complexion, I tend to steer away from any bright lipsticks with blue undertone. BUT THIS PARTICULAR SHADE WORKS! :) It's just as moisturizing as the sheer-er lip butters (e.g. Pink Truffle & Sugar Plum), which is a plus, because I find that the more pigmented ones (e.g. Red Velvet) are quite drying.
I bought this one instead of lollipop - I thought this was a bit more muted when I looked at the tube. I am not a bright lipstick person yet, but I think I like this color as a first step. It is bold, but pretty and more rosy than fushia. Like the other lip butters, this has a perfect texture: shiny - but not glossy, and richly pigmented. No smell or taste and feels smooth like a light balm.
I read all the hype about the Lip Butters and I have to say they lived up to it. Raspberry Pie was the first one I bought and I loved the saturated color. I've since gone back and gotten Lollipop as well and that one is also a favorite. I was concerned that they would bleed since they're so moisturizing but I haven't had that problem at all. I have silver hair, fair/medium skin and they both give me the pop of color I need on my small mouth. I'll be going back for more.
I love this product. It is very moisturizing and bright. This colour made my blue eyes pop and was a dramatic sweep of berry colour. It made me look healthier. I also think this colour is a great alternative to the dramatic red lip- its like a more fun version of it. Lasting power was great for a butter. I ate and drank while wearing this and my lips still had that dark raspberry stain.
