Revlon Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake: Superdrug/Boots (£7.99)

I was pretty indifferent when the Revlon Lip butters came out, and then I was even more indifferent when they came out in the UK. But like most drugstore products, I get wrapped up in blogging hype and simply just have to be apart of it. I knew from the outset they aren't my type of lip product. I wear full  coverage matte lipsticks most of the time, and this is a sheer shimmery lipstick. My lips are really pigmented so most sheer products don't show up on me. Regardless I gave into the hype and picked this up from Superdrug (the one by Marble Arch Tube/Primark on Oxford Street)

The colour of Strawberry Shortcake is a warmish pink toned lipstick in the tube, I think it comes out a lot paler on me than it does in the tube. More of a light milky barbie pink, which I don't think suits me all that much. I think it looks a touch too purple/blue on my pigmented lips. Im not 100% sure if I like it. The conistancy is creamy and slicks onto the lips incredibly easily. Its a very moisturising formula which feels comfortable on the lips. Its perfect for a daytime lipstick as it is so subtle and easy to wear. The formula doesn't wear that well though. Id say between 2-3 hours before needing reapplication, which is very poor, but average for most sheer lipbalms/lipsticks.

I was actually surprised with the price point, at nearly £8 I think thats pretty steep. Revlon is one of the higher priced drugstore brands but I do think thats quite high for a lipbalm/lipstick hybrid. Maybe its just because the product doesn't specifically appeal to me and being so nonchalant about the product probably didn't help. I do think its a good product and does live up to my expectations. If you were looking for a moisturising sheer lipstick then go for it. It is a nice product, but personally Im not blown away with my experience with it!
