Hey everyone! So recently I went shopping, with an intention to buy some revlon lip butters because I had fallen for all the hype haha, and I was so excited but when I went to boots they were sold out on loads of them :( So i ended up just buying one, but I bought some other random ones that day aswell.....
So this was the lip butter I bought, which is in Berry Smoothie. It feels really rich and smooth when you put it on, and I love the finish of it. It had a shiny but not too shiny finish. For me, the biggest disadvantage to the lip butter is that the color is not very long lasting. Even if I'm not eating or drinking, it doesn't last for more than an hour. But overall, its a really pretty colour and I'll definitely be re-purchasing it once its runs out. And I can't wait try the other ones, I'm seriously tempted to buy all 17 shades but its really annoying how they're double the price than in america! :(
|£7.99 from Boots or Superdrug|
I had a random MAC splurge on a lipstick aswell, this is Captive from MAC despite this being a more of a fall/autumn colour I still bought it now haha. I'll probably wear it more in the autumn/winter or on colder days but oh well. It is a satin finish, which is one of my favourite finishes from MAC. And I think the colour is super pretty, a bit of a vampy colour when applied properly but if you just dab and rub with your finger its just a bright dark pink colour.
|£13.50 from a MAC shop or Debhemans or any other MAC counter.|

The next lippy I bought was one of the new L'Oreal Caresse lipsticks, mine is in 06 Aphrodite Scarlett people have proclaimed them to be better or comparable to the revlon lip butters so I thought I had to try this out for myself! I really like the colour, its a nice pretty pink/ fushia colour. Its more of a pink than a red, and has a beautiful shimmer. It is quite bright when applied properly but less when dabbed or rubbed with your finger. I deffinetley think this is comparable to the lip butters and gives them a run for the money and I have to say the packaging is gorge!
