Finding the right lipstick can be a bit of a nightmare, can’t it? You find the perfect shade and glide it on with high hopes, only to find that it completely dehydrates your pout. Sigh.
If only there was some way to get the colour and texture of a lipstick, but with the nourishing benefits of a lip balm…
Before you frantically start trying to create your own Franken-lipstick, why not check out Revlon’s newest wonder product: ColorBurst Lip Butters. If the name sounds oddly familiar, it’s only because these bad boys have become the handbag essential of our stylish, transatlantic counterparts. Ladies, they are ALL the rage in the US.
So why are they so amazing then? Well these little Lip Butters soften, smooth and hydrate, all while giving you the perfect colour finish. So basically, it’s a product that contains the nourishing benefits of a lip balm, but the colour pop and staying power that you’d expect with a lipstick.
These wonder-sticks are chocked full of mango, shea and coconut butter – all of which help to naturally soothe unhappy, dry lips. They’re perfect for adding a bit of colour and protection to your pout on cold winter days or scorching summer mornings (if we ever get any, that is!).
And there’s a great selection of colours within the range. You can choose from seven different shades, which all have excellent names (Cotton Candy or Cupcake, anyone?). Plus, if you’re starting to get a bit bored of your usual colour, you can actually layer different shades to create your own unique look.
The finish is high-shine and they smell good enough to eat. It’s like a dessert for your lips.
We all know that mastering the art of lipstick application can be a bit tricky, but these Lip Butters are designed to glide on like a lip balm, which makes them perfect for those post-work touch-ups.
Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butters are finally available in Ireland now and you can get your hands on them in Boots or other leading pharmacies nationwide. They cost €11.25, but for soft, smooth, kissable lips, we think that’s a worthy investment to make, don’t you?
