REVIEW | Revlon Lip Butters & DUPES?!

Click on the image to watch the video! 

Revlon Description:
| buttery balm with beautiful shiny colour
| hydrating mango, shea and coconut butter formula boosts lip moisture
| sheet to medium colour with a buttery shine
| pampering gel formula provides super charges hydration
| glides on lips buttery smooth
| available in 20 delicious shades

Packaging:
Pretty coloured packaging with a quilted pattern, which loosely resembles the colour of the lip product inside. There is a clear window at the top which allows you to see the colour inside. Black base with silver REVLON writing and silver tubing.

Scent:
There is a very slight vanilla scent and almost undetectable in some shades. Only noticeable when you stick it right up close to your nose.

Texture & Finish:
Smooth, creamy texture and glides nicely onto the lips. None of the shades feel grainy at all, not even the ones with shimmer. Although they have a 'balm' texture, the Lip Butters do not moisture the lips.

Pigmentation / Finish:
They provide very good and buildable pigmentation. The general trend is, the brighter the colour, the better the pigmentation. Please see swatches for reference. They give shiny finish, even the ones without obviously shimmer, without requiring an additional gloss on top.

Longevity:
These will last longer on my lips than a traditional tinted lip balm. The colour will fade throughout the day with talking and drinking liquids but won't completely disappear. The brighter, more pigmented colours act almost like a semi-stain. They won't last after a meal but didn't need retouching throughout the rest of the day.

Application:
Very easy application as they don't require a lip liner (although the brighter colours are so pigmented you almost feel like you should). Mistakes are easy to fix although I would recommend using a mirror with the brighter shades.
