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?
p.s Sorry about the dodgy swatching....
