I caved in while shopping in Cabot Circus the other week, the product that everyone and their Nan has been talking about. I'd heard so many mixed reviews about this product and didn't want to go Lip Butter crazy. Now I wish I had, since the 3 for 2 offer was on. These Lip Butters are one of the blogging hypes I can say I do in fact love too! Staying power of a sheer lipstick and lightness of a lip balm, what a perfect product.
Sweet Tart was the first shade I picked out, in my local Boots, colours are limited, thankfully Bristol has the whole range. I'm on such a bright and bold lip craze at the moment. I used to be so boring with my lips. It's a pretty out there, bright pink when built up, though lollipop is brighter. I've worn this pretty much every other day. The finish is super glossy, one of the main reasons I love it. I get dry lips, Lip Butters are the miracle product for me. Gorgeous colours, great pigmentation, buildable and non lip drying.
This Lip Butter has no glitter, Sweet Tart is going to be my go to summer lip. Personally the staying power is amazing, the gloss stayed for a few hours, the colour lasted a good 8. While being so glossy, Sweet Tart doesn't feel at all sticky. I was surprised at how well it stayed put even after eating and drinking.
The packaging of the Lip Butters is pretty, I love the sort of quilted look. They look more expensive than they are and are really sturdy. The lids won't come loose in your handbag. You can see through the top of the lid what the actual product is like. I didn't bother swatching, the testers were a right mess.
