The Revlon Lip Butters are something just about every beauty blogger and Youtube guru seems to have in their collection. However are the sheer lip colours deserving of the praise?
I actually only own 3 shades, however I love them a lot! The degree of pigmentation and whether or not they contain shimmer really depends on the shade you pick. I think someone could easily buy a dud shade and wonder what all the fuss is about. They aren't a revolutionary or world-changing product but I like them and can definitely see why they appeal to so many people. I also like the silver in the tube and the fact you can see which colour you have, though I can see the plastic sheath splitting and I can already feel the product wobbling around inside the packaging.
For me, they're really hydrating and perfect for work, as they give a light flush of colour, you don't need to wear a lip balm too, plus they're really quick and easy to reapply. They don't have amazing staying power, however I wouldn't expect a product like this to. I think the main downside is that they're a little pricey; £7.99 is a lot for a sheer colour/lip balm product. However I've never actually paid full price for one; they're constantly included in deals at Boots or Superdrug.
I really recommend the three shades I have for a pretty, low-maintenance lip product to pull everything together.
