Ever since then, I have been patiently waiting for Revlon to release new shades, and here we are!
The quilted packaging is adorable. The way that the cap corresponds to the shade inside is super helpful, and also makes it easy for me to spot in my lipstick drawers and makeup bag!
From left to right: Sorbet, Pink Lemonade, Wild Watermelon, and Juicy Papaya
Swatches from left to right (One Swipe): Sorbet, Wild Watermelon, Juicy Papaya, and Pink Lemonade
Lip Swatches from left to right (multiple swipes): Sorbet, Wild Watermelon, Juicy Papaya, and Pink Lemonade
Sorbet, my favorite, is a cool toned bright fuchsia. Wild Watermelon is a warm toned, bright pinky-red. Juicy Papaya is a warm toned, soft peachy-coral. Pink Lemonade is a cool toned soft baby pink. I was surprised at how light it swatched on my wrist, but it can be layered easily as I did on the lips. These all have a cream finish (no shimmer or glitter).
Claims: "Buttery balm with beautiful shiny color to give you baby soft, healthy glowing lips 94% of women felt lips were softer, smoother, and instantly hydrated. -Award winning."
Pigmentation: The pigmentation varies by color. The brighter colors tend to be more pigmented than the lighter ones. These can be worn sheer, with just one coat., and can also be worn opaque if you apply multiple coats (like I did in my lip swatches).
Finish/Texture: The finish is shiny, and can look glossy at times. These new shades all have a cream finish. The texture feels buttery-soft and moisturizing on the lips. These are the most comfortable lip products that I have ever worn! They work well as a lip balm too, but the light shades may accentuate any flakiness.
Lasting Power: These only last about two-three hours since they are so buttery. If you talk, eat, or drink you will certainly need to reapply.
Scent: There is no scent at all.
Price/Availability: I paid $7.50 each at Target

These lip butters are definitely a drugstore favorite of mine, and the most comfortable lip products that I have ever tried! They really do act and feel like a hydrating lip balm, and provide amazing color. They can be worn opaque or sheer, depending on how much you apply. They are unscented and reasonably priced. I have not experienced slipping or bleeding at all with these, which is great for such a buttery lip product! The only issue with these is that they don't last very long and will need to be reapplied throughout the day.
I'm so happy that Revlon finally came out with new shades! They are all really pretty, and I'm still surprised at how well the lighter shades build up. Sorbet is my favorite of the new shades!
