With summer here (let's forget about all that rain that kicked it off!) it's time for some summery shades to grace our lips! For me, it's all about the easy daytime sheer colour, as when it's hot and sticky the last thing I want to worry about is checking that my bold, matte lip colour hasn't bled. Step in the infamous Revlon Lip Butters. I've heard many a thing about these wearable lip balm/lipstick hybrids but had never tried any. I recently picked up two colours which I personally think are perfect for summer!
|Revlon Lip Butters in Wild Watermelon & Juicy Papaya. RRP £7.99|
The first colour I picked up was 'Wild Watermelon', a juicy hot pink with a lot of pigmentation. It's the perfect option for an easy summer bold lip and is fairly moisturising too!
The second shade I gravitated towards was 'Juicy Papaya', a sheer peachy orange. This colour is now my go-to peachy nude, as you can easily apply without a mirror and it never looks too 'done'. I would definitely recommend this to someone who is just getting into lipstick, as it only gives a slight colour to the lips but is still enough to add a little something!
Overall, I was very impressed with these! They aren't the most moisturising of balms, but I see them more of a sheer lipstick, so will often use a balm first to keep my lips soft. These are great products if you are just starting to wear makeup, or if you want an easy lip colour for summer!
