Revlon Lip Butter in Lollipop

Thanks to some lovely Xmas thoughts I got to finally try out a Revlon Lip Butter! Behold the Lip Butter in Lollipop:


You can also see the actual colour through the top of the lipstick case, which is clear although the sides being tinted pink still do affect the colour you see.


The packaging is quite elegant for a drugstore brand, very remnicent of Dior's Hi Shine lipsticks:


Lollipop swatches on as a sheer, but bright fuchsia pink:


It is very much a blue-toned pink, particularly on my lips. The pink can get intense if you swipe on a couple more layers, as it builds up.

(sorry for the dry looking lips! My skin has been going through a dry phase this winter...)

Despite the sheerness of the Lip Butters, I find Lollipop bright enough that I would only wear it blotted on regular days, or save the full effect of it for weekends/special occasions.

In terms of wear, the product is very moisturizing, similar to the Dior Lip Glow product in terms of balminess. However this also translates to a poor wear time, coming off quite easily once I start eating or drinking.

Price-wise I think these are fairly pricey by Canadian standards, running almost $10 a tube in drugstores. However, I hear that Rexall does buy 1 get 1 free for lip products every now and then, so keep an eye out for those!

Overall, I think Lollipop is an awesome colour to have if you are branching out of neutral lipsticks and want a loud pop of colour that is comfortable to wear. However, if you want something more neutral, or more opaque then prehaps consider other products such as the Joe Fresh Cream lipsticks or Revlon Colorburst lipsticks.
