|So.. I got four.|
Of course, I eventually caved when the sets came, and bought these which came in a pack from Myers some time in November 2012. *guilty face* Don't lie, I know you have some too...
|080 - Strawberry Shortcake.|
This one took a while to grow on me, I try to avoid lip colours which are lighter then my skin tone because they make me feel and look washed out and sickly. I've found a way to wear this colour by using a darker pink lip pencil and filling in my lips (or applying a deep lip stain) and then applying this lip butter on top!
It's more moisturising than a lip stick, the colour pay off is actually quite decent (but not the same as a lipstick, like they claim - unless the lipstick is very sheer).
|Bottom Swatch : Lollipop.|
|Top Left Swatch : Peach Parfait.|
Definitely not the consistency of a lip balm and minus points for trying to imitate the satin texture of a lipstick with freaking glitter. I was most excited to try this one, the colour is definitely nice, but come on, are you even trying? If you had a different experience with this particular butter or any of the other lip butters, please let me know! Maybe I just got a really bad one!
|Bottom Left Swatch : Sugar Plum.|
The only issue if is the colour payoff, you have to layer one a few times to get the deep plum colours of a lipstick but it is very moisturising!
In conclusion, these lip butters are worth trying out but if you don't - there's really no big loss. Whatever you do - do not pay full price for these lip butters, you can buy them in sets from Myers (I think it was 3 for $29.95 AUD or something). Quite honestly, they're not worth the $25-29 AUD some retailers charge. There is not a substantial amount of product (a lot less then what you find in a full-sized lipstick or lipbalm) and whilst there are some real lovely jewels in this collection, it just didn't impress me that greatly to match the large amount of hype it received. This product is the result of some very good advertising. ;)
These opinions are my own, I'm sure that there must be some readers who absolutely love these lip butters but to me, it's better value to buy a moisturising lipstick. Better colour payoff, longer lasting, and a lot more product for roughly the same price!
Thank you for taking the time to read my blog, feedback is much loved and appreciated! Thank you all, you inspire me! :)
