So I just recently added the Revlon Colorburst & L'oreal Lipbalm series to my purse, but I decided to take a take a picture of all the lip products that I currently own (and haven't given to my sister).
The new Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter series seems to be really good for my lips, especially because I have a tendency to bite my lips, which when added to the lack of moisturizing, makes my lips look really not smooth (--the reason why I only wear balms). I don't wear lipstick because it feels and looks unnatural. Which is why I sort of gave away my Revlon 613 to my sister, (even though she's only 15, lol). But the Colorburst series is like a mixture of lipstick + balm so it's perfect. It doesn't feel AS unnatural, looks like lipstick, is of a nice texture, and is balmy enough at the same time. So it's nice. I can appear more sophisticated (ha!) while still feeling comfortable.
I'm kinda tempted to get the Creme Brulee or Berry Smoothie, but I know I shouldn't... it's not a necessity, per se... and I already spent like $30+ on the three new additions. (Which, if my friend Charlene heard about, would shake her head and give me a huff at)
Now the L'oreal Lip butter series... I only have the 418 Caring Coral.
The Korres definitely lasts longer than the L'oreal Lip Butter though. It's more moisturizing and the color is more prominent. The lip butter is more like a gloss, but without the stickiness of a gloss.
If I were to rank the three...
2. L'oreal Lip Butter
3. Revlon Colorburst
1. Revlon Colorburst
3. L'oreal Lip Butter
There's also the Miss Tangerine Follow Me lip tint in the Orange colour, but I don't use it anymore, to be honest. Especially because it's a -tint-, and because my lips are already more of a red shade than pink... I stopped using it. It IS an orange shade... but when it melts, it's pink. And I mean BRIGHT pink. I ordered it hoping for more of a coral-y orange result, but it makes me look like I'm wearing orange-ish red.
And then there's the old Mac Tinted Lip Conditioner from maybe two years ago (><). Like I said before, I hardly EVER finish my products, so yeah... this is another one of them... (><) and I hate throwing things away, so it's just... been in my makeup pile. =_=. I still like the colour of this, but it doesn't feel good compared to the newer products, so it's another one of the "I-don't-use-it-but-keep-it-to-make-my-collections-look-bigger" type of things. It's probably expired too, but... anyway, moving on.
|My arm is so pale, the mauve pink looks even more bright =_=|
|The Miss Tangerine tint is so bright here, it actually tinted my arm pink after just 5 minutes of wear, lol.|
|The Korres swatch looks so brown here, but it's not, it's just the lighting.|
Anyway, so yeah... those are the products I have for 2012! Archiving :P
