MY FAVOURITE EVERYDAY LIPSTICKS

I had a little revamp of my make-up collection over Christmas and I realised how much I needed some new lipsticks as all of mine were too bold and 'in your face' for everyday wear. After a good swatch in Boots I found myself completely in love with the formula of the Revlon Lip Butters so I picked up two shades that I thought would fill the void in my collection...
Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter 'Berry Smoothie' £7.99 (currently on 3for2 in Boots)
'Berry Smoothie' gives a gorgeous dark pink flush to the lips, creating that 'your lips but better' look. I absolutely love pink but I often struggle with pink lipsticks being too bold and barbie-esque against my casper complexion, so I love how pretty and sophisticated this one is. The formula of these beauties is just so spot on as well; it's really effortless to work with as it glides on super smoothly and I love how the colour fades evenly over the lips throughout the day so you don't have to worry about checking for top ups which is definitely a major plus when you're at work!
Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter 'Peach Parfait' £7.99 (currently on 3for2 in Boots)
I had this a couple of summers ago and I'm pretty sure it's the only lipstick that I've ever completely used up. It was one of those products that I always meant to repurchase but just never got round to it and I'd actually go as far as saying it's my favourite lipstick that I've ever tried (bold statement I know!) This is just the most perfect shade of peach as it isn't too orange toned and unlike the other peach lipsticks I've tried it manages to give a completely even colour pay off and is very pigmented, which I think is quite an achievement for such a moisturising and glossy formula. I can't stop wearing this at the moment and it'll be the perfect colour for when Spring finally arrives :)

What do you think of the Revlon Lip Butters? I can't wait to add some more to my collection, I have my eye on 'Pink Lemonade' and 'Pink Truffle' :)

  3. I absolutely adore the Berry Smoothie one, it's my all time favourite lipstick! Just started my second one of it, it's the only lipstick I have ever repurchased. I like the look of Peach Parfait too, maybe that should be next on my list! x

  8. I am forever swatching Lip Butters when I'm in Boots or Superdrug but for some reason I still haven't picked any up.. I'm not entirely sure how this makes sense? The formula sounds perfect and the colour fading evenly sounds really interesting.

  10. Lip butters make for great every day lips; they're not too pigmented so you can just reapply as and when needed without having to worry too much; I think my fave is called Sugar Plum... I've been trying to be a bit braver with day time lips but I can't help but always go back to Clarins Lip Perfectors
