£5.99 (current offer) at Boots
After months of seeing these on US YouTube channels and blogs I eagerly anticipated the mid-march release in the UK. Endless blogger hype is something I find really hard to ignore. I usually prefer a more subtle lip for every day so this type of product always sparks my interest. The Lip Butter is just that - a lip butter! It's a gorgeously nourishing lip balm with the colour of a lipstick. Boots offer 14 shades with a current price of £5.99. These are still quite hard to scout out in person as they're not in every store.
I looked at a ton of swatches online before making my choice and picked out 'Berry Smoothie' with the intention of purchasing more shades should I like the consistency. It turns out perusing swatches was no help whatsoever as Berry Smoothie looked entirely different on my lips. For me, it's actually quite pigmented and gives a deep, but not overpowering, berry pink shade. Some bloggers reported this colour to be the most natural but I found it unexpectedly pigmented and noticeable with just one layer.
I loved the colour and loved the product itself. I found it really hydrating and easy to wear and it's definitely become one of my day to day favourites. The only let down is the staying power which is similar to a lip balm coming in at around the two hour mark. With constant application this baby aint gonna last long so the full RRP of £7.99 makes it a little less appealing.
Now, over to you - which shades have you tried? Any faves? What do you think of the consistency and staying power? Leave a comment and tell all!
