Review: Revlon Lip Butters

 The outside packaging is extremely cute. I think that might be my major draw to them was the packaging; besides that everyone has been talking about them like crazy talking them up and such. I have Four of them, from left to right they are: Creamsicle, Tutti Frutti, Cotton Candy, and Sweet Tart. They were extremely hard for me to find. Everywhere I went they were sold out, and I want to say it's because the displays only hold two or three at a time (Except at walmart) and they were sought after products, so bad decision Revlon!
 I find that the color pay off is great in all four of the colors. The way they rank in my book is Sweet tart, Tutti Frutti, Cotton Candy, then Creamsicle. Which would make sense if you look at them, the darker colors show up better than the lighter colors. Tutti Frutti is a little scary in the beginning, but you can actually use a light hand with these and then it'll look amazing. They aren't as moisturizing as everyone made them seem, which was disappointing. In fact, they are drying on my lips. About 5 minutes after I put them on, I feel like I need chapstick. Also, when using a straw, they stay on pretty well. They WILL  come off, but not right away.
Bottom Line: The color pay off is amazing on all four shades, but they are pretty drying for my lips. Would I purchase more colors? Probably not. But I do like the four that I have. The other colors don't interest me.

Haul: BH Cosmetics, NARS, Lovestruck, MAC

Corresponding video: COMING SOON! My eyes are really irritated so I decided no makeup today, which in turn means no filming. Tomorrow I shall most likely put up the video.

^^Sneak peek! Can you guess what I got?! ^^
Valentines gift from the husband is above! He so sweet. 
Lovestruck by Vera Wang perfume.

  Torrid Blush by NARS. You may recognize this blush from my wishlist. I decided to bite the bullet and get it the color is absolutely gorgeous.This blush has a some shimmer to it and is pretty true to the picture I took to it, but because of varying pixelation colors on computers, it's a coral-pink color. Very pretty.

 This is my first blush from NARS, and I decided not to get orgasm or super orgasm only because I've heard so much about them, I wanted to try something different and I've been after this color for a while. So happy about my purchase. In the swatch you can kind of see it above the eyeliner swatches. It shows up pretty well on my skintone. I love it. :D

 This is an Ombre Blush from MAC in Vintage Grape.  This picture is not color correct it appears much more purple in the photos than it actually is. It goes from a light pink and then fades into a dark purple and the purple is maybe a third of the blush. I'm excited to try it out as it swatched pretty pigmented but I think a light hand would be best with this blush.  This is my first MAC blush and product. Also pretty excited about that.

 Next up is the BH Cosmetics Contour and Blush palette. It has six colors in it. A white highlight, two pink blushes, a tanner highlight and two contouring shades.
 The white swatched well, white. The two tan colors didn't show up. The two pinks came out pretty much the exact same color and the darkest color came out pretty splotchy. It's not looking good for this palette. But I'm going to give it some time to see if I actually don't like it or not.
 The 26 color palette which contains 21 eyeshadows and 5 Blushes. Unlike the above palette most of these colors swatched very well. They all were pretty  pigmented except a few of the pastel colors, they didn't show up and they were powdery.
 Top row in the palette. You can see the pastel pink didn't show up very well. The color is there, but it's very faint.
 Second row, all the colors showed up well. You can also see the shimmer in this picture.
 Bottom two rows with the blushes at the end. These blushes were very pigmented on swipe was all it needed to transfer on to my skin.
 BH Cosmetics stippling brush. Much more dense than my e.l.f brush. This brush seems like it would actually stand up to the foundation or powder instead of just flopping over like the e.l.f one.
 BH Cosmetics 10 piece brush kit. These brushes are very soft, much softer than I would of pictured.
 Fluffy Powder Brush
 Blush Brush
 Foundation Brush
Blending Brush
 Angled Definer Brush
 Smudge Brush
 Fine Eyeliner Brush
 Eyeshadow Brush
Precision Brush
 Brush bag they comes in.
 Pen liquid liner.
 Showing the applicator.
One swipe over the hand. Very pigmented and it stayed on even after trying to wipe it off. 
 Free gift for spending over a certain amount of money. The Waterproof pencil liner in Onyx.
 Typical Pencil liner.
In comparison to the liquid eyeliner it is not as black, but it is waterproof so this one was a fight to get off even with the makeup remover.
