Revlon Colourburst Lip Butters

Hi guys

I know it's been a seriously long time since my last post, unfortunately health issues have had me on the sidelines for a while, but hopefully all is looking up and I can get back into the swing of things properly soon.

I thought I'd do a super quick post with some swatches of the new Revlon lip Butters.  I have 4 of them in my collection now, and to be brutally honest I wasn't even going to bother getting any as they are expensive here at $21.95 each and were far too hyped up when they were released,  but I bought them on the spur of the moment on a rainy day in Nelson Bay as it was either shop or be stuck in a musty damp cottage with nothing to do.  I bought them at Priceline when they had the 2 for 1 deal on them, which I think is much more reasonable.

They are very shimmery with some even having noticeable glittery pieces, they are also quite sheer and glossy depending on the colour you have, which means you need to re-apply quite often and the pigmentation isn't overtly great on some shades, so for the most part you end up with a sheer slick of glossy colour on your lips.  Sometimes I really don't mind that though and the colour range is very pretty and girly.

The 4 colours I have are, Peach parfait, Cotton candy, Cupcake and Lollipop.  Lollipop is by far the most obvious colour with the best pigment and it actually lasts quite well too.

Onto the pictures, as we all know they are the best way of showing the colours off.

Personally Lollipop is my stand out favourite, as it has more pigment and lasts longer on my lips, not to mention there's just something super fun about a bright fuschia lippie to brighten your day up :)

Gorgeous lipsticks, aren't they?! It's funny, I have peach parfait and it looks so nude on me, but it looks lovely on your skintone!

I also really love Lollipop on you, it looked like clown make up on me, haha.

they are very pretty, and the shimmers arent as obvious when you are wearing them. Peach parfait looks darker against my arm,but on my lips it is quite nude as well.

The Lollipop looks so gorgeous. I love the picture of Emma Stone wearing Peach Parfait, but on my it didn't look the same sadly.
