Revlon Lip Butter ‘Strawberry Shortcake’

Unlike my Maybelline purchases, I know that these babies are hitting UK sheaves in March, but I still wanted to pick one up when I could. The Revlon Lip Butters have been talked about on blogs for a while now and the lipstick/lipbalm hybrid really appealed to me.

Having used this for a week or so I have to say I like it, but I’m not totally blown away. It’s a lovely colour and nice and moisturising, creamy and the packaging is lovely. But for some reason the blog hype made me expect something more!? No idea what to be honest…

But as an easy, day to day tint of moisturising colour I do really like it. I would definitely be tempted to try another shade and see what I think of other colours and if this makes a difference. But as I said, nice colour, creamy, moisturising and good packaging. I do really like that the colour is creamy and doesn’t rely on shimmer/glitter to add the glossy look. Very much another of the ‘my looks but better’ type of product.

Nothing really to complain about at all really, I blame the blog hype for building these up in my head before trying!

    Ah I hate blog hype! I always build things up to be so incredible and when they’re just “okay” I get annoyed haha. I really want to try this colour xx

    Really looking forward to trying these, largely due to all the blog hype! This colour is definitely one I’ve had my eye on!

    I 3 of these in december last year, I like them and luckily they aren’t too expensive but I like them. There was so much hype about Benefit they’re real and it was a real disappointment for me.

    Have to be honest, I’ve read some many reviews now saying they have been ‘over hyped’ and people were disappointed expecting more. I honestly can’t see me buying them which is a shame really as its something I think would have ‘suited’ my routine and look. The colour does look lovely on you though xxx

    They look nice but a bit similar to the Boots 17 Mirror Shine lippies?
