I had pretty much written off the Revlon Lip Butter movement and all its balmy efforts with my last three purchases because truthfully they whelmed me. But when I caught glimpse of one of this years newest additions swatched online, I knew Red velvet might just be the one to sway me.
Praise Jebus I was right. I'm going to let the pictures take over at this point because LOOK:
|First Step: The torturous task of finding blog props to photograph before use!|
|Rich and Moist just like its namesake|
|Revlon's Red velvet is a deep red with pink/plum leanings|
|You can almost taste it, right?|
|I'm just shocked the cake lasted this long|
|On the actual kisser. Red Velvet, it makes me smile, wha?|
Not only is Red Velvet soft, moisturising and fairly long wearing (2 hrs approx) but it's the most flattering red I've worn in a while, considering my aversion to bright colours. I've had several compliments while wearing this shade and you know what? That makes me happy.
There are five limited edition Revlon lip butter shades available for Summer 2013 with the last two here joining the permanent collection: Wild Water / Juicy Papaya / Sorbet / Pink Lemonade / Brown Sugar / Red Velvet / Sugar Plum. Thankfully Red Velvet made the cut!
You can check out the other shades in action, Brown Sugar especially over here on Sunday Girl's delectable blog. Truth be told I'm not sure I'll be picking up any others though I know for a fact I'll be stocking up on this. Thankfully they're 3 for 2 at the minute in Boots.
What think we?
