Butter! Who doesn’t love butter? Potatoes suck, but then you add some butter and wow, potatoes are awesome. Now, a lip butter? Sounds great, I bet it’s really light and comfortable on the lips. These two products are supposed to be creamy and comfortable with a shiny finish, but sadly only one really is. Let’s see!
I think maybe Revlon’s a little confused about what butter is, because this stuff is a bit more sticky than I expected. Its butteriness is not impressive, but it sure does stay on the lips. I’d be more likely to use this when I’m looking for a stain. I spent hours (and had a lovely day) in SoHo when I tried this out and by the late afternoon my lips were still pink without reapplying.
Wow, this stuff is like a dream. I hate wearing a heavy-feeling product on my lips and this is so smooth, creamy and comfortable to me. I don’t even understand how this can be creamier, yet more pigmented: usually there’s trade-off involved. It does lack the staying power of the Revlon Lip Butter, however. You will need to reapply after a few hours.
So, is a little stickiness enough to make you spend $30 more for lipstick? I’m not even sure myself, but I wouldn’t repurchase Revlon’s Lip Butter. If you’re looking one single lipstick that you can wear everyday, all day, comfortably then I think the Rouge Volupte lipstick is a great option. Sephora’s spring sale should be coming soon (!?) so if you’re in the market for a new lipstick, keep this one in mind!
All The Best,
