Revlon Lip Butters: Creamsicle & Red Velvet [Photos & Swatches]

So, I can finally see why everyone is super hyped and can't stop raving about the new Revlon Lip Butters - which aren't currently in Singapore yet - and I hope soon, because I think it would be great to check out more colors in this range.  In general, I like Revlon lip products (I have their matte lipsticks and their Colour Burst ones) - so anyway, these are really pretty.  I must also thank Hazel for helping me to purchase these goodies when she was in the US recently.  She picked out two colors for me, one in a neutral shade, and one that has a pop of color, I am so happy that she chose these colors, I really cannot ask for a better combination!!  Woooooots!!!!

Description from the Revlon website:

Buttery Balm + Shiny Color

Buttery balm with beautiful shiny color to give you baby soft, healthy glowing lips

94% 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 colour with buttery shine

Available in 20 luscious shades

 

 


I only had the chance to swatch these, and I shall give my thoughts and perhaps some comparisons to other lipsticks I own in a separate entry.

But I must say, these do feel incredibly buttery, like a creamy balm, and are more pigmented than I had imagined/ expected.  When you see my lip swatches later you can see what I mean.

Swatches on my hand doesn't show up much, but when worn on the lips (I swiped across my lips about 2 - 3 times) they are pretty intense.

More photos of the packaging:

The lip butter has a flat slanted top, and is housed in a sturdy metal tube.

My eyes practically WIDENED when I saw this color, and I was most eager to see how this pale shade looks on my lips.

This is in the shade Creamsicle -- and as you can see, it only lightened my original lip color - the product is pigmented, but because it is buttery and creamy, it doesn't have that concealer deadly effect.  It also makes my lips look soft.

This is Red Velvet - LOVE THE NAME - and it is a deep classic red. Very nice, and very easy to wear.  I applied straight from the tube as with all my red lipsticks.  The color is deep, almost berry-ish not too dark.  Very very very pretty!!!!

 

Bottomline?  You need to check these out.  WHEN ARE THESE COMING TO SINGAPORE?

 

I hope this has been helpful, and thank you for looking.   :)

I love creamsicle! It's sheer enough to let your lip colour show true but pigmented enough to show up too! It's perfect! So excited! Can't wait for these!

FAQ & DISCLAIMER

About Me

My name is Sophia, and I am in my early 30s. I am from Singapore and I am the sole writer of this blog.

About this Blog

I started this blog in 2006, I like to use a wide range of brands though I seem to have a growing preference for higher-end brands in recent years. I also like to share interesting things I have come across about makeup and beauty.

Currently The Makeup Blogette receives 39,000 unique views monthly or 2,238,932 views and counting.

My Makeup Style

I like classic looks (neutral tones on eyes, anything goes for lips & cheeks), though occasionally I try out dramatic/ statement looks.  I believe that a flawless base is the key to achieving great makeup looks.  I also believe that if you don't have great skin to start with, fake it with a good foundation routine, and even greater skincare.  I am currently loving Clarins & Lancome skincare products, and Vichy NormaDerm for tackling with breakouts.

What Cameras do I use?

Most of the pictures you see in post 2010 entries are taken with my Canon G-11.  Previously I was using Canon Ixus 80.  I do post some pictures which are taken with my iphone4 which I will state in that particular entry.  I have stopped watermarking my pictures as of 2011, because I think watermarks are ugly in general, and does not prevent people from stealing my pictures if they wish to.  I just take it as a compliment that my pictures are even worth stealing in the first place. I might look into getting a Canon EOS next year, not just for blogging purposes, but I also like photography in general.

My Favourite Makeup Brand(s)

It is hard to name just one, but I like NARS, Chanel, Illamasqua and the ocasional Guerlain, Dior & Urban Decay item.  I own quite a stash of MAC items, but recently I have stopped catching up with their collections, and I much prefer to splurge on a few really outstanding items.

Where to find me

Twitter (link button above!)  Email (stated above!)  Instagram (makeup_blogette)

I have no official Facebook fan page, and currently have no intention to start one at all.  The Makeup Blogette remains my personal hobby and property, so as such, I don't believe in having a Facebook fanpage for it.

Final Disclaimer

I bought/ paid for all of the products mentioned in this blog. I am not affliated to any company. If certain products are sent to me for review purposes, I will say so and express my honest opinions about them. In any case, I will only review and showcase the products which I have personally tried and tested, and enjoy using. I do not get paid to review anything.

No ads, no paid links etc please.  I am in charge of all content and pictures here.

I am not a makeup artist, nor do I have any professional training in makeup.
