As mentioned here yesterday, I’ve very luckily had the chance to try some of the Revlon Lip Butters that have been causing a storm in America. I’ve been working my way through all of them today (I’ve kept five) and I really do love them. Firstly, when I started using them this morning I had really dry lips and without using any lipbalm they’ve completely eradicated the dryness, so as a treatment they work wonderfully. The finish is creamy, glossy without being OTT and feels so much like Chanel Rouge Coco that I doubt I’ll be buying the Chanel ones again, especially as there are so many amazing shades in this range.
I’ve tried to take some decent pictures but unfortunately the front facing camera on my phone has taken images that are a bit fuzzy so my lip pictures aren’t as clear as I’d like them to be. Here’s a run through of the colours I’ve tried, going lightest to darkest:
This is a beautiful pale pink with with a slight blue tone.
It has tiny flecks of gold in it, making it very similar to Chanel Rouge Coco in Royallieu (my absolute favourite from the range).
It’s a slightly vinyl pink that wears well both sheer and built-up.
This is another of my favourites (although it’s difficult to choose as I really love them all!) as it’s another very pretty pink.
I really struggle to tell whether this one has shimmer or not and I’ve tried swatching it in various lights; some lights looks a bit like it contains shimmer but if it does then it’s incredibly subtle.
This is incredibly similar to Strawberry Shortcake, but just slightly less blue toned and definitely less shimmery.
This is a really vibrant red with an impressive payoff for such a nourishing formula.
It’s definitely more blue-toned than orange toned which thankfully works really well with my pale skin tone.
This is another shade that’s really buildable, so you can apply it lightly for a hint of red, or build it up for a true pop of colour.
This is more of a pinky red that’s really flattering and quite sophisticated (in my humble opinion!).
In the tube it looks like a dark, moody red, but it wears as a medium berry colour which I personally really love.
I personally like this as a daytime work look as I think it’s polished without being too over the top.
This is a deep plum shade with a very slight hint of pink.
This looks a lot more intimidating in the tube than it actually is, but it’s another very buildable shade so it could be built-up to a really deep plummy pink.
This is probably the colour I’ll get the least wear out, mainly because it’s a little too dark for me. It’s still a very pretty shade though and not one I’ll write-off easily. I think this is the perfect shade for when you can’t face doing a full face of make-up, but need to look like you’ve made an effort as whilst it isn’t a wow colour, it definitely has enough of a punch to draw attention to the lips without overpowering the face.
I really cannot wait for these to launch here (which will be on 14th March) as I’m so impressed with them and I can’t wait to stock up on the other shades.
I have a sealed and unswatched Lip Butter to giveaway to one lucky BeautyGeekUK reader. The shade I have is Tutti Frutti and if you fancy having a look at a swatch and an on the lips picture, have a look here

really nice colors …. done everything
I love these! I have 3 that I bought over Ebay from the US and I am loving all shades–including Tutti Frutti, which looks really wild but is surprisingly wearable. Looking forward to the launch on 14th of March. Cannot wait as I’ve decided I want all the colours!!!
I know exactly what you mean as I want them all too! They’re all so pretty, especially the pink ones xx
Oh my Gosh! Im very late for this promo.. Lovely shades, hope there is a second time.
I’m sure I could do another one if I could actually get hold of them as they’re nowhere to be found due to their popularity! xx
I still haven’t got my hands on these SOLD OUT all the time! They look gorgeous ♥
Tell me about it! Everywhere I’ve looked there isn’t one left, which is really annoying as I’ve got my eye on a particular shade that I really, really, REALLY want xx
