As promised, a review of of my new Revlon Lip Butter!
I bought Red Velvet... I wanted a lighter alternative to my L'Oreal Infallible lipstick in time for summer. For a few minutes, I was torn between this color and Sugar Plum, an apparently lovely deep purple. Glad I chose this one for its color similarity to my Bold Bordeaux, because on looking up Sugar Plum swatches online it appears to share the failing of many purple lip colors- no opacity!
I love Red Velvet's color and texture; it has deep pigmentation and a nice sheen to it! One drawback is application- the bullet is bulky and thick, making direct tube application imprecise. However, a lip brush alleviates this.
The other drawback is durability; it IS a lip balm after all. A few hours or a snack later and it's gone.

Now I'll go buy some more spray paint for my headstone project. I ran out halfway through! :-P
