Revlon Lip Butters are here!

If you're anything like me, constantly watching beauty videos on YouTube, you will have heard a fair bit about Revlon Lip Butters. They're in between a lipstick and a lip balm; providing the colour of a lipstick and the moisturising properties of a lip balm.

In February I ordered my first lip butter, in Strawberry Shortcake, off eBay. I will be reviewing this product after I get a few more, but I definitely like them. I like the colour, the feel and, well, everything! 

Last week I was informed that the the Lip Butters had hit Australia. Finally! 
Today I went to four different stores in the search for Revlon Lip Butters (Priceline, Target, Big W and KMart). The only store that had them so far was Priceline and, at $21.95 each, I couldn't believe it! At $6.49 US at Target (the American Target, obviously), I am shocked. Everything is overpriced here in Australia, but this seems insane. Especially considering that, according to the currency site I just used, they would cost $6.25 if they were sold at the US price. Lip butters can also be bought off eBay for about $10.00, depending on availability. 

Regardless of the price, however, this was really exciting. I've been waiting for these to come out in Australia for ages, as I'm sure many of you have.

I'll definitely be buying my lip butters off eBay but I had a lot of fun swatching the colours (the poor Priceline woman probably thought I was crazy).
Just some of the swatching
(sorry it's on its side, I thought I rotated it)
After all my swatching, I've decided I want the following Revlon Lip Butters. Please note: The colours listed below may or may not be swatched above. I should have been more methodical about it, but I was a crazy woman.
  • Creamsicle
  • Peach Parfait
  • Sugar Plum
  • Sweet Tart
  • Tuitti Fruitti
  • Candy Apple
These colours are all really pretty but, to be honest, I really liked them all! So now it's your turn - Have you tried the Revlon Lip Butters? What's your favourite? If you haven't tried them yet, what colours are appealing to you?

  1. I was holding out till they came to Australia but now I've seen the price I'll probably just order them from Ebay.

    1. I definitely would, Klara. Let me know which ones you get!

  2. Eww did you swatch it on your foot?

    1. Hi, Anonymous, no I didn't. I swatched the lip butters on the side of my left hand, towards my thumb. My hand is on it's side in the photo, which may make it look like it's the side of a foot. It's definitely my hand though.

    2. I know this is an old post but I came across it and anonymous's comment made me crack up hahaha as if anyone would swatch their foot LOL

    3. Hi, Jen! I was surprised too, to say the least. Rest assured though, it's definitely my hand!
