revlon colorburst lip butter - cotton candy

As a person I am always late, you say 8 o'clock and nine times out of ten I will roll up at 8.30. It is a really annoying trait I have and the more I try to be on time, the later I seem to become. I don't know what it is, I just have an inability to get to a place for a certain time. Being like this, I am always late with trends too. Now I know that the hype surrounding the Revlon lip butters has been around forever, but this is actually the first time I have purchased one. When they first became popular, I really wanted to try them out but whenever I looked for them, they were always sold out. Since then, I kind of forgot about them until last week when I saw them in Boots so picked one up!

Revlon ColorBurst lip butter 'Cotton Candy' £7.99

The shade I chose was Cotton Candy, a lovely pastel pink with slight gold flecks to it. The colour is quite sheer but adds a really nice tinted shine to everyday lips.

The formula of these lip butters, like you have probably read 1000 times before is like a creamy balm. It glides along the lips with no drag at all and is very moisturising. It doesn't feel sticky on the lips and reminds me of the l'oreal rouge caresse lipsticks that i fell in love with before. I found the packaging of these really cute, with each case matching the shade that it holds. I love the clear window at the top too which makes it easy to spot the colour inside easily.

For me, Cotton Candy only seemed to last a couple of hours, which I think is down to the sheerness of the butter. My lips felt lovely and moisturised after the colour had faded though which is always a bonus, I just prefer something that lasts slightly longer.

I can see why these are popular as I seem to be grabbing this everyday for work as it is so easy to wear. They are really handy if you are going for a subtle makeup look and just want a tiny hint of colour on the lips.
