Revlon 2013 lip butters

Happy Monday, even when it’s rainy outside 🙂 I have for you today swatches of the Revlon 2013 lip butters I got last week, as requested.

Here are Wild Watermelon (left) and Sorbet (right). Aren’t these tubes just looking lovely and inviting? lol. Not much more to comment on the argyle prints on the colour-coded packaging, and the bar code stickers which also act as a seal to avoid contamination.

Lawtons is still the only place I found the Pacific Coast display so far. The lip butters are $9.50 regularly.

I relied on the colour indication of the lids and the name stickers at the bottom of the tubes to choose these two among the 4 shades available (no testers).

In the tubes, Wild Watermelon is leaning toward red and Sorbet is toward fuchsia/ pink. And I love them both for their bright and cheerful colours.

Formula wise though, I have to note that the first few swipes during swatching felt a little drier than the regular lip butters.

Swatches, same order – Wild Watermelon on the left, Sorbet on the right.

There are enough differences in the undertone between these two colours for you to maybe justify getting both. Note that all 4 colours will be part of the permanent line in the US and Canada, so no rush to grab them.

On the lips, I’m happy to say that they feel more smooth and glided on easier, guess they need some warming up with use. I hope Revlon did not change the formula, as it was perfect to start with.

Once the excitement calmed down a bit, I kept wondering if I had seen similar colours before.

I pulled out Sweet Tart from Revlon’s current lip butter line and swatched it on the right hand side of the other two. It did feel more buttery.

Yes, Sorbet and Sweet Tart are close enough that you do not need both. For that reason, I prefer Wild Watermelon but you know that Sorbet will get equal love from me. At this point, I can’t confirm if Wild Watermelon is close to any other shade of lip butters as I don’t own all of them 🙂

The other two shades from the 2013 release (Juicy Papaya and Pink Lemonade) I heard have less pigmentation. If the line goes on big sale, I might go ahead and grab them too, but not for now. Hope the review is helpful for those who are contemplating a purchase.
