Revlon Lip Butters and L'oreal Rouge Caresse

I've been dying to get my hands on the Revlon Lip Butters for ages and they were finally released in the UK a few weeks ago. It took me a while to find them stocked in Boots but I eventually managed to buy some (and swatch all of the others!) yesterday.


Boots have a 3 for 2 deal on loads of products at the moment so I was going to pick up 3 Revlon Lip Butters as I was finding it tough choosing just 1 but one of my favourites, Peach Parfait wasn't available (well I wasn't going to buy the manky one that had been opened!).


Revlon Lip Butter Strawberry Shortcake, L'oreal Rouge Caresse Fashionista Pink, Revlon Lip Butter Cotton Candy

I narrowed my choices down to Strawberry Shortcake and Cotton Candy. So far I'm really liking them as they are moisturising on the lips as well as providing a nice shot of colour. On the lips I thought Cotton Candy was my favourite but looking back at these photos I really like Strawberry Shortcake too!

Since I didn't get a third Revlon Lip Butter I decided to get a L'oreal Rouge Caresse as they seem to be the L'oreal version of a Revlon Lip Butter. The shade I chose is Fashionista Pink which is a sheer light pink colour that doesn't show up on the lips much. They had some really nice, bold red and pink shades which were very tempting but I decided to go for something a bit more wearable. One thing I would say about these compared with the Revlon ones is that these feel more silky on the lips and they glide on more easily.

I really like both the Revlon and the L'oreal offerings and would definately recommend them. I still kinda want the Revlon Peach Parfait but we'll see since I have bought a lot of other lip products lately!

  1. I bought two of the Revlon Lip Butters but I have to admit I'm not that keen on them. I much prefer a solid lipstick. They look really good on you though xx

  2. Good idea doing a comparison of the two, I really want to try them! Can't find the lip butters any where, thought they were going to be well advertised after the hype but sadly not xx
