Revlon Lip Butter - Juicy Papaya

Revlon Lip Butter - Juicy Papaya 

On a recent trip to boots I decided to check out the newer shades of Revlon's infamous lip butters. I have to say, I jumped straight on the bandwagon back when these were first released in the UK and I already have shades 'peach parfait' and 'cotton candy' and I like them, but I don't love them. The two shades I already own have quite a lot of shimmer in them, especially peach parfait which almost feels like big chunks of glitter! This time around I opted for a shade which didn't have glitter in it, and I have to say I like this much more than my others - and that's 'Juicy Papaya'. 



Juicy papaya is a gorgeous soft orange/pink shade which is perfect for spring/summer. As much as I love corals - I don't feel I can pull off a full on BAM in your face coral, but this is subtle and I really enjoy wearing it. The formula is pretty moisturising and I found it smoother and softer than the other lip butters I own. Pigmentation wise it doesn't have a whole load of colour, but it isn't a lipstick so that's expected. As far as I know the darker/brighter shades of the lip butters are the best for colour pay off, but I really like this one.Unfortunately my camera seems to have erased my swatch picture but as I'm sure you know, these lip butters are blogged by many so you'll be able to find a swatch (here's one). 

Do you like Revlon lip butters? What is your favourite shade?

    1. They differ in texture/pigmentation/quality between everyshade in my opinion, but worth trying as there are some beautiful shades in there. xo
