Revlon Lip Butter Review and Swatches Take 2

Two weeks ago I made a review on the Revlon Lip Butter in the shade Cherry Tart that I purchased. I have said in my previous review that it was not that great as I expected and I guess the product was not really for me. However I also stated in that post that I would have to give this product another chance and purchased another just to try it out and see if my opinion about it would change. 

A few days ago I was in the drugstore and as usual I was on the beauty aisle. I saw a rack of the infamous Revlon Lip Butter, this time, with more colors as opposed to my first buy wherein there were only a few shades to choose from. I wasn't going to bother buying another lip butter so soon after I bought my first one especially that I didn't like it that much but I was drawn into it by the promo which was buy one get the next half off so I finally chose my two colors, Sugar Plum and Brown Sugar. Hmmm... I didn't even realize I purchased both shades with the word sugar in it. :)

My view on the lip butters still didn't change. I feel that there is something lacking about them and the product just didn't live up to the hype. I am really loving Sugar Plum though. When I purchased the two shades I really thought that I would like Brown Sugar better because I like nudes, but after trying both out, I like how Sugar Plum looks on me. I don't have a lipstick with a plum base so I picked this to try out and I'm glad I did. I have to mention that Brown Sugar is a really nice dupe for Estee Lauder Pure Color Lipstick in Crystal Honey.

  1. I was looking at brown sugar and my husband told me not to get it. It doesn't look bad on u tho! I have the shade Creme Brûlée and it's a nice nude. It reminds me of one of my fave MAC lipsticks, High Tea.

  2. Yes Brown Sugar is not that bad but I'm more fond of Sugar Plum. :)

  3. I'm glad you didn't think they lived up to the hype either! I felt when I was writing my review that people would think it was blasphemous! I felt like everyone was in love with the lip butters EXCEPT for me lol.
