Revlon Lip Butter swatch and review

So the Revlon Lip Butters have finally made its way into Canadian pharmacies. It's been available across the border for quite some time but I've never been able to pick any up as the displays were always either empty or the colours I wanted have all been opened and tested.
In Canada, these retail for just under $10 each. I've seen them go on BOGO and 50% off at various pharmacies so don't ever pay full price if you can avoid it xD.
I first came across the full line of 20 colours during the Revlon, Almay London Drugs Beauty Event. I received Red Velvet from the event's swag bag, Sugar Plum as a Christmas pressie from my friend Eva and bought Lollipop and Sweet Tart when they were on sale at Shoppers Drug Mart for $3.99

Revlon sez:
"- Buttery Balm + Shiny Color
- Buttery balm with beautiful shiny color to give you baby soft, healthy glowing lips94% of women felt lips      were softer, smoother, and instantly hydrated.
- Hydrating mango, shea and coconut butter formula boosts lip moisture by 156%
- Pampering gel formula provides super charged hydration and glides on lips buttery smooth
- Sheer to medium color with buttery shine
- Available in 20 luscious shades"
Nunu sez:
Before Revlon Lip Butters came into my life, I thought the Maybelline Baby Lips were the shizzle. I take that back, Revlon Lip Butters are the shizzle.
Whereas the Maybelline Baby Lips were more balmy, the Revlon Lip Butters felt like an ultra moisturising lipstick. The finish is high shine and almost jelly like. Think Dior Addict and you're pretty much bang on. The Lip Butters are also way more moisturising than the Maybelline Baby Lips balms. Texture wise, the Maybelline Lip Balms are rather hard and waxy, the Revlon Lip Butters really apply smoooooth like buttahh (Dorothy I'm saying this in your ghetto way xD)
Darker shades tend to wear for longer and will stain lips slightly, but on average I had to reapply every 2hrs or so. 
The price makes me wince slightly but the quality is superb. I would not hesitate to buy when they goes on sale.

Do you like my Christmas present?xD


  1. I actually really like Red Velvet, so send her over. Think I need to go pick up Fig Jam now. XD;

    Your Christmas present and manicure are so pretty *_*

  2. ohhh i love the colours you have. i don't have any luck finding these revlon lip butters since all the good colours are sold out.

    also loving that ring. =D

  3. Oh I only have one lip butter and I have to say it's one of the greatest lip products I own! I never tried baby lips because it's been out of stock forever xD
    I really love that nail polish too!

  4. Have I just fallen far behind in reading your posts? All of the swatch posts have been great. Both Lip Butters are so flattering on you, and that holiday manicure is divine.

    And that ring!!!!!!

  5. Red Velvet is gorgeous!

    The Christmas mani is also that gold over the red. Pretty!

  6. I'm also in love with these lip butters! collected 6 and counting. awesome lip swatches - esp red velvet.

    Congrats on the beautiful ring!! The detailing in the band is gorgeous

  7. This may not be the important thing you're featuring in this post, but THAT ring you have on looks too pretty! The red nails go so well with it too!


  8. Love your mani!! :D It looks so pretty (and i don't usually like reds so this is a good thing!!) Haha, you make me really want to try the lip butters.... shall wait for it's arrivals onto NZ shores now XD

  9. oooo is that an engagement ring I see? CONGRATS!!!! :)
    Really nice nail combo btw, perfect for the holiday season!

  10. You know...I saw ONE Red Velvet at my local CVS when I first checked out their selection and shyed away from getting it since it looked SO DARK in the tube. BOO..regret not getting it now. :3 But I do have Fig Jam! Haven't used it yet...but it looks like a lovely, everyday color. ^^

    OOOH, is that I ring I see? Congrats!! XD (At first I thought the nail polishes were your gift...but then I took a double take. lol)

  11. Omg those colours look divine on your lips! I have Lollipop and need to get more colours for sure.

    Love your Xmas present of course :D Oh, and am super jealous your fingers look so perfect with the ring...i have werewolf

  12. Hii I am sorry to ask but are you sure the second color is fig jam? I looked up other swatches of fig jam and they seem to look almost brown, but this fig jam looks like a beautiful pink! The reason why I am speculating is because I really want the color you have on your lips but i am 90% sure it is not fig jam ><

  13. Where have you seen these go on sale?
    I always hear of BOGO Free and BOGO 50% sales happening in the States, but never in Canada.

  14. Both the Red Velvet and Sugar Plum are super pretty.
