Revlon Colourburst Lip Butters

Hello Guys n Gals,

There has been a lot of hype around these Lip Butters that had until now, not been released in the UK. I got an e-mail from Boots last week saying that they were being released online a little early. I have been so excited about these, literally, counting down the days and checking in store just in case they were released early, that I got online as soon as physically possible to get some, I picked up Peach Parfait and Creme Brulee. I think I may have overhyped these in my head, because they didn't really live up to my expectations, I was expecting these to be a little more moisturising than they actually were, that's not to say I didn't like them, I think I'd just created a different product in my head and unfortunately, when I eventually got my mitts on them, the product in my head didn't match the real life product! However, onto what they actually are, The Peach Parfait is a pink shade with  small flecks of gold runningh through to give it quite a shimmery look and Creme Brulee is more of a nude colour, and has smaller particles of gold running through so there is still a shimmer but it's more subtle than the Peach Parfait. I really quite like the colour of Creme Brulee, it's quite natural and I think will be lovely in the summer when I tend not to wear so much makeup, The Peach Parfait is also a nice colour, but maybe not favourite, they do only add a hint of colour when first applied which I quite like and can be built up to create a stronger colour. So, all in all, I do quite like these, they are moisturising, they're just not as moisturising as I was hoping for (I guess I was really looking for more of a Lip Balm moisturising effect from them) and I like the fact that you can build the colour up depending on your mood. I bought these from Boots with a special offer of 2 for £10 on Revlon products but they are running out of stock quickly (although they do state that they are replenishing stocks daily).

Have you tried these yet? What are your thoughts?
