Worth the Hype? ~ Revlon Lip Butters

Review: Revlon Lip Butters ~ Are they worth the hype? To me, no. I admit part of the fun in a new product coming out is the hunt. I've done this with several products that I've read and heard about from others. The hype a product gets doesn't mean it's good or bad in my opinion, just popular. I bought two shades: Brown Sugar & Peach Parfait. I would have purchased Red Velvet but my display did not have it. According to Revlon, these will be part of the permanent line. They are just now showing up in Rite Aids, Walgreens & CVS. I found mine at CVS. They come in a wide variety of shades from very pale to deep red. While I found these to go on very smoothly and feel like a lip balm, my lips did feel dry within 1-2 hours of application. I get the same out of a moisturizing lipstick. Peach Parfait has some shimmer to it and was not very pigmented. Brown Sugar has a very nice, opaque rusty brown color with no shimmer. Of course all of these shades will vary slightly depending on your own natural lip color. If you're going to buy any, I suggest the more matte shades. While I do think these are nice, for what you get at the $7-$8 price range, I won't repurchase.
