Revlon Lip Butters in Wild Watermelon and Juicy Papaya

 
 

Once I saw a few new limited edition lip butter shades floating around the blogosphere I knew that they had to be mine! I already own a couple of lip butters and Strawberry Shortcake was my go to lip product last summer. These are two of the four limited edition shades that aren't officially being launched until April (but can be found on Boots & Superdrug websites) the other two shades are called Sorbet and Pink Lemonade which will no doubt be added to my collection sometime soon - I just can't help myself!! I can't fault the formula of lip butters, they glide on like a dream, there's definitely no pulling or sticking to dry patches, they're moisturising and leave a glossy finish with a good colour pay off which is easy to build up. They also have that vanilla MAC like smell to them which I love. Wild Watermelon looks very red in the tube but once applied it does have a strong pink tone to it, I don't think I could find a better way to describe it than the colour of the inside of a watermelon! It applies quite sheer but can be built up to be bright. Like all lip butters they don't last an amazing length of time on your lips and this lasted a good 2 hours but it did leave a dark red stain on my lips. Juicy Papaya was the lip butter than I was most looking forward to trying because the colour looked right up my street but I'm sad to say I was disappointed, boohoo!! The colour pay off wasn't great and it looked about the same shade of my lips just glossier. I've seen swatches of this on darker skin on other blogs and it looks gorgeous so I don't know if it's just the fact that I am excessively pale right now and when I've St Morized it will be the lip butter of my dreams that I imagined it to be so I'm definitely going to persevere!
