Firstly, HAPPY NEW YEAR! Is it too late to say that now? I hope you all had lovely Christmas' and New Years, and that you all ate and drank too much and were very very merry. I had a lovely Christmas and skiing holiday in Austria over new year, and I'm now back to my usual motivated blogger self with lots of exciting posts coming up featuring some of my new presents and goodies.
To start 2013, I thought I'd do a long awaited post about my Revlon Lip Butters - they've caused quite a stir since hitting our shelves and I think most bbloggers have at least one in their collection, so this won't be the only review out there, but I'm going to add my pennies worth anyway. It was back in summer that I bought my first one, a light pink shade, 'Strawberry Shortcake' and I found it perfect to just add a bit of colour whilst on holiday and it looked amazing with a tan, whilst also giving my lips a burst of moisture which is essential in sunnier climes.
Along came autumn/winter and I have to say I forgot about it a little bit and was more focussed on darker shades and strayed more towards my Mac Plumful and other similar lipsticks, then one night whilst I was browsing Boots I remembered how much I loved my 'Strawberry Shortcake' and decided a darker shade would be perfect for winter as it also has a lip balm effect which would combat the inevitable dry winter lips. 'Raspberry Pie' jumped out at me and I just fell in love. I loved it that much I even bought my sisters one each too as a stocking filler for christmas as I knew they'd love it too (even better was the fact that because I bought three I got a gorgeous gold glitter nail varnish for free!!)
What do you guys think of these lip butters? Do you have any in your collection?
