(Side note, that’s total sarcasm in my title, I realize everyone and their second cousin twice removed has been talking about these for the past couple of weeks when they first were spotted on drugstore shelves. I am deliberately poking fun at myself for continuing the seemingly endless talk and praise for said Butters)
I didn’t intend to write a full on post about these because I honestly didn’t anticipate liking them as much as I did (and do). Then after encountering several displays, coupons and BOGO sales, I amassed more of them than I thought I would. For those girls who are just now seeing the displays in your areas or have been so intimated by the sheer number of colors, this one’s for you.
Please keep in mind I didn’t pay full price for many of these, maybe one or two. The rest I combined coupons at the stores with BOGO sales to make the price of each closer to $4. I have also spotted these for about a month now. I didn’t buy them all at once, but one or two at a time when I happened to stop in a drugstore. So far, I have only seen them at Walgreens and CVS stores. I would recommend waiting to get them on sale as they are kind of pricey ($7.50 in my area) and although I think the product and packing justifies the cost, I don’t like paying full price if I don’t have to. However, most displays only have 2 of each shade, sometimes only 1. So if you have your heart set on a shade it may be worth picking up while you see it. I have no clue if these are limited edition or a permanent line Revlon is adding.
Tutti Frutti (more orange-red on lips), Cherry Tart (has slight shimmer), Candy Apple, Sugar Plum, Raspberry Pie, Strawberry Shortcake, Creme Brule, Creamsicle, Sweet Tart
These shades are all quite different as you can see. They feel moisturizing like a balm and although they aren’t particularly long wearing (think about an hour- 1.5 hours) the darker shades definitely leave behind a bit of a stain. They aren’t sticky and I like the texture and consistency. I like the fact that they add a glossy look without being over the top shiny. I think the packaging is divine as well. I may give Tutti Frutti and Cherry Tart to a friend because I don’t particularly care for how they look on me. But the rest of them I am extremely pleased with. The shade selection is huge and at first I thought some of them would overlap, but the ones I picked out certainly don’t.
These are totally worth trying out and I give Revlon two thumbs up for creating such an awesome product!
