Nothing new to the blogging world but I did want to touch on these myself because of all the hype they have always gotten. I was really exited to try a lipstick that was moisturizing. And moisturizing they are! However, not all of these hybrids are lipstick material if you ask me. The 2 I bought were Creamsicle & Cotton Candy.
Creamsicle is my favorite so far. Not all nudes look good on me because I have a lighter skin tone but I thought this was good. It wasn't too dark or too light for me. Creamsicle is a lot more opaque then the others that I have found so far
Now for Cotton Candy: That swatch is misleading because it looks a lot more sheer on the lips and instead of a pink sheen on my lips, it was more or less just an off colored shimmer. I ended up taking Cotton Candy back and grabbing Cupcake..bad idea, for me! Cupcake was the same. I just returned it was was going to go for Strawberry Shortcake but I ended up not grabbing it because Ulta was having a sale and I had my eye on another lipstick. My little cousin would love this color I think because of the fact that it's more shimmer then it is a pink color, if you know what I mean. However, after looking at swatches, Strawberry Shortcake looks pretty opaque- I am determined to find a nice pink I like in the collection so sooner or later I will have to grab it!
Staying power is the same as any other ordinary lipstick. I would say that if you can get a good opaque color, then they are the perfect hybrid. If you like sheer lipsticks, I think you will find plenty there.
On a side note: I am going to Pittsburgh for the weekend and I am all done with my first part of the Spring Trends series!!! Depending on my mood, it will be up either sunday or monday. You guys are gunna love it! for now....
Do you have any of the Revlon Lip Butters? What one's have better color pay off than Cotton Candy? Please me know!
