I know these have been out for a while now, but I’ve purchased some new ones the other day and I just wanted to do a little review.
So the first one is 065 Creamsicle which is a pale orangey nude with no shimmer. What I like about this one is that it tones down my lip color and is very pretty with a nice lip gloss over. It would be perfect to wear when you have a very strong eye makeup look so it doesn’t take the focus away.
The second one is 095 Crème Brulee, a pinkish brown with no shimmer. If you think that Creamsicle is too pale, then this one is the perfect nude for you. I thought it would be more opaque/pigmented, but it appears to go one very sheer on your lips. I wear it either alone or with, again, a nice lip gloss over it.
Then the third one is 025 Peach Parfait. It has a slightly more reddish tint than the Crème Brulee, but is still a good everyday natural lips color. This one has tiny gold shimmer in it, which is not something that I really particularly like, but they are not too apparent when you put it on your lips so it doesn’t bother me much.
The next one, 015 Tutti Frutti, I was a bit skeptical when I bought it because in the tube, it looks sooo orange (and not all orange shades suit my complexion). But it appears to be now one of my favorite lip butter of the bunch! It is a nice matt coral sheer lipstick that can make a normal makeup look so much more festive and alive. I can’t wait to wear it during the hot sunny summer days!
Then 090 Sweet Tart, is a very bright pink that is perfect for either very girly girls, or someone that wants a little accent of color to their makeup without looking too intense or severe. I like wearing this color by contrasting the very girly makeup look that it give, with a more boyish clothing style (ex: wide pants with a large white tee).
Next one is 060 Gumdrop. In the tube, it is a bright pale lilac with tiny silver shimmer, but on my lips it ends up being a pink lilac without too much shimmer (which I like). I was also afraid that it would be too pale for me, but it is just enough to give a nice soft look to your makeup. My favorite way to wear this one is with black eyeliner only (and mascara, of course!). I put a nice natural pink blush on my cheeks and then this lip butter. It softens the look so much! Love it!
The last one is 075 Lillipop which is a deep fuschia. Contrarily to the other lip butters, you have to be a bit more careful when applying this one since it is more pigmented, but is still a bit sheer though. Again, this lip butter is perfect to do a lip accent color. I like wearing this one when going out.
So my comments in general; love the texture of those lip butters, they do hydrate my lips (although not like a lip balm, but still), but the downside is that you need to reapply them more often than a dry matt lipstick. But I don’t really mind personally. Also, apart from Lollipop, they run more sheer and you need to put more layers to have them more pigmented. But again, it doesn’t bother me since I find them more versatile like this; some days I want a more sheer tinted lips, and others I want more vibrant ones. So I can choose how I want to apply them.
Conclusion? Love them!
