These brand new beauties from Revlon boasting an incredibly moisturizing formula are nearly impossible to find. Imagine my delight when I stumbled upon a display of Lip Butters at Target that was surprisingly not yet picked over! I narrowed my selection down to two and came away with the shades seen above: Berry Smoothie (left) and Raspberry Pie (right). Isn't the diamond packaging just gorgeous? They come in a fairly wide range of shades as well.
At this point, very few drugstore lipstick formulas blow me away, but Revlon is almost always an exception and the Lip Butters don't disappoint. The texture is smooth and feels exactly like a slightly heavier lip balm, but has the pigment and color payoff of a lipstick, plus a bit of shine like a gloss. Hello, miracle formula! Revlon has nailed the best of all three worlds with these Lip Butters! They'll be especially great for chapped lips in winter. No wonder they're so hard to track down! If you spot these, take advantage! I'm sure I'll be back for more.
Berry Smoothie is subtle and is a perfect everyday lip color, or useful for when you're playing up your eyes. It's definitely not a nude, but doesn't quite pack the visual punch that Raspberry Pie does, either. It's my opinion that every lady needs a fuchsia lipstick shade in her beauty arsenal, so if yours is lacking, Raspberry Pie is a great one!
Perhaps the best part of all, though, is the price. These were just over $6 each at my local Target, practically a pittance for such a great product! Lip Butters would make a lovely present for anybody who likes color on their lips, whether it's balm or gloss or lipstick. Seriously, they're too amazing too pass up! I've also seen them for sale at Walgreens but have yet to find them anywhere online.
Anyone else tried the Lip Butters yet? Thoughts?
