Product Review - Revlon Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie

When the Revlon Lip Butters were launched in the UK I jumped on the band wagon and bought one as soon as possible! However I was totally disappointed, I bought one in the shade 'Strawberry Shortcake', a light, creamy, baby pink. I tried it on and immediately hated it, the colour was awful on me, it was so pigmented which wasn't what I was expecting and it clung to any dry skin on my lips.

BUT!!! I have now fallen in love with a lip butter and I've forgiven Revlon(hehe) :D

This lip butter is completely different!

It's in the shade Berry Smoothie.
I bought this because I liked the look of the colour and Emilynoel83, from YouTube recommended it in one of her videos.

Berry Smoothie is a fairly sheer berry colour, it feels smooth and moisturising on the lips.

The packaging is sleek, sophisticated and the actual product is a good shape and enables easy application.

This is the lip butter swatched on my hand, on the right it's just one swipe of the product and on the left it's a few layers of the lip butter. 

This is Berry Smoothie applied lightly, I love this for an everyday/work/daytime look, it's lovely and sheer.

- Not badly priced - £7.99
- Easy to wear
- Amazing colour(for me anyway)
- Moisturising

- You don't get much product for the money
- The product can get a bit soft quite easily, which makes it harder to apply(I've stuck mine in the fridge for a while)

Thanks for reading

P.S. If anyone wants the lip butter in Strawberry Shortcake that I have, let me know, I'd be happy to send it to you :) I've only used it a couple of times. Hopefully I can find it a new home where it'll be used and loved :D hehe.
