Review: Revlon Colorburst lip Butter in Raspberry Pie

Saturday, 30 March 2013

Hi everyone,

I can't believe it's taken me this long to buy the Revlon lip butters considering these products came out last year! When the lip butters first hit the shelves,I wasn't really impressed with the shade selection and the only colour that stood out to me was Raspberry pie so I am glad I finally picked it up. The lip butters are a combination of a lipstick and a lip balm. First of all I love the shade it's a beautiful raspberry pink. The colour pay off is amazing because it is so opaque, which I absolutely love! The lip butter applies smoothly and is moisturising.

This shade compliments dark skin complexions really well so if you are women of colour,definitely check this colour out. I really like the Chanel inspired quilted packaging. I also think that's its cool that you are able to see the colour of the lip butter because of the clear caps which just makes it easier for everyone to find the shade they want.

There a couple of shades I want to get my hands on especially Red Velvet but is only available in the US so hopefully Revlon will bring that shade to the UK. The Lip Butters are available at Boots and Superdrug and are priced at £7.99. I do think that the price tag is a bit expensive for a high street/drug store product but when I bought it, it was £5.00 because Revlon had a deal on. So have you tried the Revlon Lip Butters? What do you think?

Butter London Nail Of The Day

Sunday, 10 March 2013

Hi everyone,

This is my first nail of the day post and I am excited to show you guys this polish. Butter London's Come To Bed Red is a beautiful classic red that will suit any skin tone. It is such a vibrant shade and I love how shiny and bright it is. My favourite thing about this nail polish is the formula and consistency because it so smooth and easy to apply unlike some Essie shades. It is opaque in one coat which is great because it shows how pigmented the shade is. I normally like the names in the Butter London collection which are really funny and quirky however I am not a fan of this particular name.

This polish did chip on the second day but I was washing the dishes and cooking so I guess that's understandable. Also I never wear a top coat so it's my own fault. I  may invest in the Butter London's one but If you have any other good recommendations for top coats do let me know.

Butter London polishes retail for £12 which is expensive but because Butter London are a 3 free company which means the polishes don't contain Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP that's what  makes them different to other brands so that's how I justify buying these polishes. As well as the Formula and the consistency being amazing! So I think they are worth the price tag and the next one on my list is Slapper which is a gorgeous bright teal shade which is so perfect for spring and summer.

Have you tried any Butter London nail polishes?
