Re-Review of the Revlon Lip Butters

So, I told you a while ago about how I had bought a Revlon lip butter in peach parfait. Initially I didn’t like it at all! I found the glitter (and it is glitter – not shimmer) all together too much, really gritty on my lips and I just wanted to wipe it straight off! NOT ideal…

However, I’m the kind of girl who believes in perseverance, repeatedly trying things and only giving up when I feel I really have no other choice but to (that doesn’t happen very often). Never discount something immediately.

So, what I did was I put my lip butter in my lab coat pocket. Oh yes! I’m one of those crazy ladies who lives in the prep room wearing a white lab coat and quite often safety specs (I’m not actually that crazy, though I had insane hiccups today and the looks I got from some of the kids were hilarious to say the least). Anyway, this means over the past week, I have used it all-day every-day. I’m still not appreciating the glitter. But I am appreciating pretty much everything else about this product.

  • It is THE perfect everyday colour for my lips.
  • It is really hydrating. I’ve barely been using lip salve during the day its that hydrating!
  • It’s leaving my lips looking fuller and kind of plump – something they rarely look like.
  • Its easy to apply. I don’t have time to pop to a mirror. I can slick this on without worrying. It just works.
  • I feel more ‘made-up’ without any more effort than I normally put in. 
  • It’s quite hard to get it to transfer to the teeth – so I know I’m not wandering round with lipstick teeth (always a worry…)!
The two downsides to this particular lip butter are the glitter and that it does seem to have stained my lips – the latter doesn’t bother me, I quite like the colour my lips have become!
Another downside is how fast I am getting through it. I would imagine at my current rate of usage (about 4/5 applications a day, 5 days a week) I will have finished this in just over a month. This doesn’t overly concern me as I could get through a normal lip balm in about the same time. 
Would I re-purchase this? Probably not. The glitter is still a massive issue for me. HOWEVER, I will be checking out the other shades and trying to find one I like that doesn’t have the glitter in… Recommendations would be welcome! About to start trawling blogs for swatches.
Love xoxo

    I'd say go for it. There are shades without the glitter, plus you might not find the glitter as much of a problem as me – I'm pretty fussy about how what I put on my lips feels. Plus they are a great halfway point between a tinted lipbalm and lipstick. I'm definitely going to be buying a shade that doesn't have the glitter. These and the L'Oreal rouge caresse's (which I still prefer) are definitely becoming my favourite lip products!
