Revlon Lip Butters launched roughly a year ago, and have quickly become a much-loved, even iconic product. They are pitched as a kipstick/lipbalm hybrid – that is, a highly pigmented lip product that is nourishing to your lips and comfortable to wear. Today I’ll be looking at the Revlon Lip Butter in Red Velvet.
Revlon Lip Butter packaging is very consistent with Revlon’s branding, coming presented in cute “quilted” tubes, tinted a colour similar to the shade encased within, and with a handy clear top to more accurately see the shade of the product.
In the tube, Red Velvet is a deep berry, almost brown shade of red.
When applied to my lips, Red Velvet really does come into its own. It’s a lovely rich berry, and is much more pigmented than I was expecting, giving a lovely wine-stained lip.
Red Velvet is not 100% opaque, which (in my opinion) makes it much easier to wear. When I wear this shade I feel effortlessly sexy and vampy.
There is no doubt the texture of this Lip Butter (as I have found with all that I have tried) is very creamy. I can’t say I find it particularly hydrating, but it doesn’t dry my lips out, and is quite comfortable for as long as I am wearing it.
The wear time is not fantastic, it starts to fade after around 3 hours, and I definitely need to reapply after lunch or a cup of coffee.
