Hey everyone! So for the past week or so I've been slowly but surely collecting an array of different shades of Revlon's new Lip Butters. It seems like every store I went to was almost totally cleaned out, so I had to drive all over my town just to find the shades I wanted, and there are still a few more that I'd love to own (like Gumball - lilac? Yes please!) Anyway, I wanted to review and swatch the shades that I do have at the moment, especially because a couple of these belong to my mom and my sister, and I didn't think they'd appreciate them being exiled to my "waiting to be reviewed" pile.

- 025 Peach Parfait - a shimmery peachy shade
- 001 Pink Truffle - a light brown-ish pink
- 050 Berry Smoothie - a lighter raspberry color
- 075 Lollipop - a really bright fuchsia shade
- 035 Candy Apple - a bright red
- 040 Red Velvet - a dark red
As you can see, the shades are really pigmented, like a cross between a tinted lip balm and an actual lipstick. These have a lot of shine to them, and feel nice and moisturizing on the lips. On me, they don't wear as long as a regular lipstick, but I still get a few solid hours and they definitely wear longer than a lip balm would. I like that you can get sheer color as well as really opaque color when using these, depending on how much you apply.
The packaging on these is really nice, and I like how you can easily tell the shades apart, in case you have a big collection of them and are trying to grab the right one. And something about the metal packaging on the inside feels really sleek and high-end.
(I know these lip swatches are a little sloppy - I was a bit under the weather when I swatched them, and you can definitely see that I wasn't really feeling it. But seeing the shades is the most important part, right?)
You can really see the shine in these lip swatches - it's not as much as you would get with a gloss, but these are definitely nowhere near matte!
These are just as good as a regular lipstick, but are super moisturizing and creamy. I really don't have any complaints!
