Revlon Lip Butter - Red Velvet

So this is yet another Revlon Lip Butter post, however this is a colour which is only in the states and wasn't released over here! I got this lip butter about a week before they were released in the UK as my cousin was in the states and I had heard so much about Red Velvet and knew it wasn't going to be in the UK release, so she kindly picked it up for me. I didn't see any point in posting about this lip butter while the UK 'hype' of them was happening until now  when it has all calmed down a bit as as you wouldn't be able to get it from the UK collection. Pigmentation wise it is really great as you can see in the photos above, it is a deep berry red colour and looks very glossy on the lips personally I think this would be perfect for Autumn/winter time. I must admit when I first put this on it was a lot darker than I thought it would be I thought it was going to be a brighter red but after a few hours getting used to it I did really like the shade. Personally I feel if there wasn't so much hype around this lip butter in particular from the US and it was released in the UK I probably wouldn't have bought it due to it being so dark, but it does show that stepping out of your comfort zone is a good thing :)

If you are interested in this shade you may be best looking on ebay for it as I know a lot of people have been able to get hold of them there or if you know someone going to the states i'm sure if you ask them nicely they would get you one! So what do you think, are you disappointed this wasn't in the UK release?

  1. Nice colour. These lipsticks are everywhere at the moment! What's your absolute fave lipstick brand, as I reckon these might be a bit of a novelty fad....??

  2. My favourite would have to be Mac it is the brand I own the most lipsticks from! I do really like the Revlon lipsticks as well not including the lip butters :) xo
