Great pink to have in your lip product collection!
I know I've written separate reviews on these puppies- but I can't help but want to give them breathing room in their own separate reviews- they're that good! I have Sweet Tart, which is great, although I had originally wanted Cupcake (However, Revlon's Matte Lipsticks in Sky Pink and Pink Pout are similar in color, both are faves atm). I didn't go back to get Cupcake or any other ones (until I got Creme Brulee- HG nude lip right there) so I was pleasantly surprised and had to laugh when my bf's mom asked if I wanted it- it was a little too young looking for her... and I loved being gifted with it...C'mon, another lip butter, this time for free!?! I think Strawberry Shortcake is very cute, and I must have underrated it because it wasn't on my original lip butter list. Its a very cute and girly pink- but with a cool pearly shine. If you don't like something with a little frost, this might not be for you- but again, its very minimal. This is not a must have shade in my lippie wardrobe, only because I have other lippies similar in color- but it makes a great addition and is a good staple girly girl pink. Plus, who can only have one pink lippie? (I can't! ) All in all, love having this in my Revlon lip butter collection, and glad my bf's mom asked if I wanted it....of course I did! :D
Cheap but great!
This lip stick is smooth, non sticky, and lasts all day. It is just as good as the high end lip sticks that I have tried. But this is better because it's only half the price of the others.I definitley think anyone looking for a new lip stick should try this one. The colors are absolutely beautiful!
I like it..now.
When I first got this I was really excited to try it out because when I saw swatches of it it was a really nice light pink color. Then when I got home and put it on it was so much darker (I have pretty pigmented lips) and I was really disappointed, pretty much gave up on it.
Recently I tried putting a concealer on my lips and then wearing it.
Much..much better. It was just what I wanted/expected when I first tried wearing it.
No longer disappointed, it feels really good on my lips and I love the color.
It does fade rather quickly but it's like a lip balm so I don't expect it to be long wearing.
I am a huge fan!
I am in love with this shade! It is so beautiful! Its not to bold of a pink which I love. They have a great selection as well! It compliments all skin tones and is super hydrating. I love the sort of purple undertone it gives. The only problem I have with it, is that it doesn't last that long on my lips.. But overall I love the formula of this product.
Favorite Lip Color For Summer
I absolutely love the Revlon Lip Butters and especially love this shade. It's the perfect shade for summer and the consistency of the product is extremely smooth and creamy. You get the moisture of a lip balm and the color pay off of a lip tint. The color pay off of these Lip Butters is extremely exceptional. You're spending a little extra, but it's worth every penny!
Overall it was good but...
Over all this product is a good product. I purchased this product in the shade Strawberry Shortcake thinking it was going to be pigmented and very moisturizing. The first time i applied it, it went on smoothly, then around 30 minutes later i felt as if the moisture disappeared. They tell you it is very moisturizing... but i dont really think so..The pigmentation was pretty good but it doesnt stay very long. i had to re apply it several time to keep the rich bright color. The packaging is very cute though! You dont receive too much product in the tube but thats alright i guess for the price of the product. What i recommend doing is applying a good coat of lip balm before you apply the product and as for the pigmentation...theres not much you can do but re apply often.
Cute, but doesn't live up to the claim
I first purchased Strawberry Shortcake around the holiday season. My initial reaction to the application is that it was pretty smooth, the color was a bit sheer but pretty, and it felt a little hydrating, but after about 30 minutes I noticed that the hydrating feeling had gone, there was a gritty texture, most of the product had worn off, and what color was left had settled into the lines in my lips. I wasn't impressed. I later bought Tutti Fruitti in hopes that a different shade would offer different results and it did... but not in a positive way. Tutti Fruitti had more of a tug to it during application and I didn't notice a hydrating feeling at any point of wear with this (if anything it was pretty waxy). Fortunately the color didn't settle into lines, this shade wore longer, and it didn't have the gritty feeling like Strawberry Shortcake did. Although this one had a few more pros, I still didn't like it that much because of the somewhat drying formula (which is the exact opposite of what it is supposed to do).
These aren't horrible products, but they have a lot of room for improvement and there are better (and cheaper) moisturizing lip products out there.
