Revlon Lip Butter Set

Picture stolen from Myer Website!
This was one of my Christmas presents to myself, and I absolutely love this set! It was really good value for money (if I recall correctly, it was only $29.95 and I had a $20voucher so technically only paid $10 for it!). It came in a really useful box (I keep all my samples in the box) with three shades of lip butters and a great compact mirror that has an enlargening (is that a word?) mirror on one side so I can see all my pores properly :P

The three shades I received, from left to right, were Sugar Plum, Lollipop and Peach parfait.

Sugar Plum is the lip butter I reach to whenever I go out at night! Its a gorgeous colour that is a shade darker than my natural lips. I know I'm very late on the whole lip butter band wagon, but the formula is SO HYDRATING. I can't get over it! HAHA I knew I should have gotten some a lot sooner!

Lollipop is a bright shade of barbie pink. It's great for when I want a pop of colour, and is quite bright and opaque on the lips. Only issue I have with Lollipop is that it has tiny glitter/shimmer in it - I prefer my brighter lip colours to have a more matte finish. This gives a very glossy effect - almost as if I had lipgloss over it.

Peach Parfait is definitely the most used lip butter. As you can see from the swatch on my lips below, it gives a my-lips-but-better effect. I love this one so much, and now understand why the testers for Peach Parfait are always completely used up! I pretty much use this everyday as a lipbalm, because it's so moisturising and has such a natural look. I will definitely be repurchasing this colour!

Swatches on my arms - as you can see Sugar Plum looks like a darker version of Peach Parfait, which is probably why it suits me so well!


  1. I thought this set was a great idea - I ended up buying one for a friend for Christmas. I have Peach Parfait (Although it's gone missing!) and Sugar Plum and love them both.

    1. HAHA there seems to be a case of the missing peach parfait! I'm sure I read that another blogger was missing that shade. In fact, I lost it for about 3 weeks, and then never found the time til now to blog about it!

  2. these are all very pretty I got one of the revlon gift sets before christmas when they had the GWP offer. They had some really great ones this christmas

    1. Their Christmas packs were amazing! I wish I stocked up on more :P
