Revlon Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake

Revlon Lip Butter in 'Strawberry Shortcake' (£7.99)
So another review of one of these lip butters can't hurt, can it? I must admit I wasn't desperate to buy one of these when all the hype came around because to me they always seemed like an overpriced tinted lip balm, but I popped into Boots the other day and these were on offer for £5 each so I picked up one of the lighter shades, Strawberry Shortcake, to finally see what all the fuss was about. I was very pleasantly surprised!

They are, in essence, still an overpriced tinted lip balm. But it's so much easier (and cleaner) having something in lipstick form rather than a pot. There's also a huge selection of colours while most tinted lip balms always end up being the same shade of dark, rosy pink. They have the same staying power - so not very long at all - but also the same nourishing, light texture and much more intense colour. The colour does build up really well very quickly, which I also wasn't expecting.

They're perfect for someone like me: dry lips, afraid of bold colour on an average day but still wanting something on the lips to 'finish' the look. I'm definitely going to try out some other colours next time I'm in Boots because I think my lipstick collection has enough baby pink in it for now!
