I was rather restrained and only picked up one lip butter (I know I only posted about this lip balm in a haul on Thursday, but I've actually had it since last Tuesday so I feel able to post a full review now) because I wasn't entirely convinced I'd love them- it's so easy for such a hyped up product to not live up to expectations. I chose Strawberry Shortcake, but I did swatch almost every other shade in Boots (my hand was very pretty) so I can vouch for the fact that they all at least appear to demonstrate the same formula and pigmentation as the one I have :)
Strawberry Shortcake is about in the middle of the range colour wise- there are quite a lot of darker and brighter shades, as well as a couple of nude/pale colours. It's a cool toned pink- typical for me! (I'm either unadventurous or I know what suits me and I stick to it...) I love this shade and I have to say I'm sorely tempted to pick up more... Lets see if that spending ban holds!
It stays on my lips fairly well- probably a couple of hours without eating or drinking, although it does tend to fade oddly (though this could well be because I was eating and drinking a lot when wearing it) I also smells really good- quite sweet, though I can't place the scent (maybe vanilla?)
Having said how much I love it, do I think it's worth the (£7.99) price?
I'm somewhat surprised to hear myself saying: Yes! OK so £8 IS a lot for a lip product (for me anyway) and I was a little dubious that it would be worth it, but it works so well as both a lip balm and a tinted lip product that I definitely recommend them, especially for people like me who has dry lips and sometimes find it hard to wear lipstick as they are just too drying (even the good ones!)
They're included in the Boots 3 for 2 offer at the moment, so now is a great time to purchase one, and there are plenty of testers so I really recommend trying one out! :)
Have you tried a lip butter yet? What's your favourite shade?
