Worth the hype? Revlon Lip Butters

In the Spring, Revlon Lip Butters hit the UK by storm. Everyone had seen them, everyone wanted them, and everyone was trying them. They were raved about and hyped like you wouldn't believe in the blogosphere; everyone was saying how much they loved these gorgeously packaged new Revlon wonders. But are they really worth the hype they still get everyday in the blogosphere?


"A buttery balm with beautiful shiny colour, giving you baby soft and healthy glowing lips."

When they first hit the UK, I was reluctant to buy them. At £7.99 each, they seemed a lot of money for what was ultimately a tinted lip balm. But, like with many raved about products here in the blogosphere, it wasn't long before I just had to try them for myself and see exactly what the hype was all about. The first two I bough were Tutti Fruitti, which you can read the review of here, and Lollipop, which you can read the review of here. My initial thoughts were that I liked them, but I was disappointed in the lack of colour and staying power of Tutti Fruitti. Then I tried Peach Parfait, which I bought from a blog sale. You can read the review of Peach Parfait here. This one I loved, like Lollipop. It had better lasting power and pigmentation, and I think it is similar in shade to NARS Orgasm. By this time I liked them, and loved some, and wanted to try more. But it wasn't until recently that I truly fell in love with these gorgeous lip butters.

I have recently done a swap with a lovely Canadian girl. Two of the things I got were two American-only shades of the Revlon Lip Butters. The shades I picked, Sugar Plum and Cherry Tart, are amazing. I am actually in love, particularly with Cherry Tart.I just love them. I wish we got these shades here in the UK, and there are so many other shades I want to try too.

So do I think these are worth the enourmous hype they get in the blogosphere? Yes, I really, really do. The colour range is great, they really do leave my lips feeling super soft and silky smooth, and the colour pay-off and pigmentation for most of them, is well worth the hype, and the price. I really want to add Candy Apple to my collection next! You can find these both on the Boots website where they usually retail at £7.99, although sometimes they can be found on offer for £5.99 or 3 for 2.

  1. I love the colours and the feel but honestly, I gave mine away after using them a few times, I find that they really bleed! :(

  2. My absolute favourite is Tutti Frutti! At first I think "eh this is okay" but then after using it for a while I am in love with it! :)

  4. I've only tried one but I was so unimpressed I'm sorry to say. Especially considering the pricetag. I recently made my own lip butter/balm which was 10 times better :S
    A lot of people said maybe I just hadn't found the right shade but I'm still unconvinced ;)

    Great review xx

  7. I have Peach Parfait,Creme Brulee and Berry Smoothie.
    I love the colour of Peach Parfait but I just find it too gritty and drying.
    My favourite has to be Berry Smoothie.

    I can't wait to go out any buy some more. I totally think they are worth the hype.

  9. I have both sweet tart and cotton candy, and I am in love with them both. My only problem with sweet tart is that it drys my lips out, however, cotton candy doesn't seem to do this? How strange!

    Love Becky xx

  13. I love Cherry Tart as well - it's probably the most wearable red that I own :)

  14. "a lovely Canadian girl" - that's me! Great review! Let me tell you, I have been sorely tempted by your Revlon Lip Butter reviews! Keep up the great blogging!

  15. I love the idea of them but they are rather pricey ad to be honest the colour pay of is ok but nothing worth writing home about. I have tutti frutti and like you I was impressed to begin with but now im not keen. I think I could find a cheaper high street product that does the same thing.

    Great review! :) x

  19. I love the lip butters but find they don't last very long but they're really creamy and love the finish they have.

  20. I have just given in and today bought Raspberry Pie, which is gorgeous :) I'll no doubt be buying more! Cherry Tart looks like my ideal colour, so irritating! Hopefully they'll come to the UK eventually...

  21. I think it's quite worth the hype, especially certain colors like Peach Parfait :D I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Totally agree! I now have 18 lip butters, which is a bit crazy!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Agreed! I love my lipbutters - I have sweet tart and cotton candy and the colours just suit me perfectly. I didnt use to wear any lipsticks before I bought a lipbutter, I just stuck to lipbalms, but I'm hooked now! Xo

  24. I love these! And the great thing is I have so many coupons that I can use that I don't feel as though I'm getting them for the full price (or at least that's what I tell myself when I buy them....)

  25. I love tutti fruity and rasberry pie! Overall I am a huge fan of the lip butters and loved your review!

  26. Wish I loved them as much as you do, I don't really like the formula, I find it too sticky, but I think I will like the more during winter time, btw you have lovely colours. xo

  27. I love them! I have Peach Parfait, Berry Smoothie and Sweet Tart. I love the last 2, but Peach Parfait isn't as pigmented as I'd have hoped, and too gritty. I want Cupcake & Strawberry Shortcake next! :) x
