Review: Revlon Lip Butter in Pink Truffe

This is a review of the Revlon Lip Butter in Pink Truffle.  The Revlon Lip Butters were so hyped on the internet that I picked up a few on a previous trip to the US.  Unfortunately, the Lip Butters are not yet available in Japan.

What it does: (from the Revlon website)

Pamper your lips with a gel formula that provides super-charged hydration and glides on buttery smooth. In fact, 94% of women’s lips felt were softer, smoother, and instantly hydrated.

Price: Will vary, as with all US drugstore products. CVS.com lists this product for $9.

Swatch:

Pros:

  • Very smooth. My biggest issue with most lipsticks is that they make my lips peel. That didn’t happen with this lipstick, so I am happy!
  • The subtle pigmentation makes this a very useful lipstick when I just need to throw something on
  • I like the color. It makes my face brighter but still looks natural with my skin coloring.

Cons:

  • If you are looking for a long lasting lipstick, this is definitely not the product for you.

 

Would I repurchase? Yes, this is a great lipstick for on the go!

 

I really enjoyed the texture of these lipsticks. If there is another Revlon Lip Butter shade that you recommend, please let me know!

 

Hope you enjoyed this review!

Throwback Thursday: Favorites from February

This month, I revisited my monthly favorites from 20122011 and 2010.

My favorites products from February 2012 were:

This was a great inexpensive eyeliner which did not transfer!  I really enjoyed it, even though I did not like the brush or the packaging.
Unfortunately, I don’t wear this anymore since I switched to brown pencil eyeliners. I found that the combination of using the color brown and using a pencil eyeliner gave me a softer look.
This was an impulse buy while I was meeting up with another blogger.  I haven’t repurchased this product since Maybelline comes out with so many mascaras each year!

 

My favorites products from February 2011 was:

Lush Glogg Shower Gel (link goes to my review)

This product was a favorite over the holidays because the scent reminded me of mulled wine. While this product was re-released for the 2011 and 2012 holiday season, it was not released for the 2014 holiday season.

My favorites products from February 2010 was:
MAC 219 brush 
I remember being so excited about finally getting a MAC 219 brush. I still love this brush and use it every day.  I have bought another 219 brush, and the shape is totally different. Since these are handmade, I strongly suggest that you take each brush in your hand and test it out before buying it.
Hope you enjoyed this trip down memory lane!

Review: Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero

This is a review of the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero.

I am not really sure how I got this product. I usually don’t buy expensive eyeliners, because there are quite a few drugstore products that I like. The UD eyeliner was hyped up a lot online at one point, so that may be why I decided to try it.

What it does: (from the Sephora website)
Glide on color that stays put for the duration of your nonstop, on-the-go day! These cushiony, creamy eye pencils deliver powerful, vibrant color that slides on smooth and stays soft and creamy for blending (about 30 seconds), then dries to a long-lasting finish that won’t budge. Line eyes with a hint of color or go for the full artistic, multi-hued effect. Truly inspired, these pencils go all day and all night.

 

Price: $20

Availability: Urban Decay products are available in the US at Sephora, Sephora.com, and on the Urban Decay website.

 

Pros:

  • This is an extremely creamy eyeliner
  • Because it is so creamy, it applies easily without dragging the skin.
  • The color Zero is very black
  • This product comes in a very wide range of colors

 

Cons:

  • This product transfers under my eyes… A LOT.  I need to wipe my undereye area multiple times a day.
  • The price!

 

Would I repurchase? No.  I am not sure why everyone loves this eyeliner. It gives me massive transfer under my eyes and does not set.

 

Instead of this product, I recommend the Jordana 12 HR Made to Last eyeliner.  It is just as creamy and pigmented, but does not transfer… and is only $2.50!

 

 

Hope you enjoyed this review!

I’m writing this post as I am waiting for my flight to Hawaii!! Woohoo!

Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to write enough drafts for the duration of my trip.  Maybe I’ll have time during this trip to write something… or maybe not.
