I was super, super excited when these came out. I was very happy with my Colorburst Lip Gloss plus I read nice reviews about these lip butters. I wanted to buy all the colors! Well, good thing I didn’t.
I got Sweet Tart, Cupcake and Gumdrop. I bought Gumdrop to replace my favorite Avon Berry Mauvy which is running out.
First things first, nice packaging. The design works for me and the cap stays on. It’s actually a bit hard to remove the cap at times, especially with one hand.
No weird smell and no allergies. They glide on like butter but I feel that they dry out my lips after a couple of hours. So I still use a lip balm with these.
Here are swatches:
As you can see, they don’t look very nice. They don’t leave a clean, smooth finish when they should because, well, they’re lip butters. They look terrible especially if you have dry, chapped lips. Avoid these when you have dry lips. Or choose the darker shades. I swiped these after giving my lips a thorough scrub and they still look like that. Oh, and no lip balm base.
Obviously my favorite is Sweet Tart and no, Gumdrop cannot be a substitute for my Berry Mauvy.
They’re 500+ pesos a tube and no, I will not buy more shades again.
