Lip Butter-ed

Butter makes everything better.  And Revlon proves that lips are no exception to this rule.  I know there are about a gagillion posts on their Colorburst Lip Butters, but these shabby-chic works of art deserve all the attention they get.  They're moisturizing, smoothing and full of color.  Plus, I'd be amiss if I claimed to be a lip product addict without reviewing these. I have four already, but wouldn't think twice about going back for more.

Here are a few lip swatches of the four colors I have.  First up is a nice nude, Creme Brulee.

Next is my absolute favorite - a bright red-orange, Tutti Fruti.  This gal gets 2 swatches.

 I like this pink, too.  Sweet Tart.

Last but not least, a very pale lip color called Creamsicle.

Here's a class picture of the packaging, in the order presented above (L-R): Creme Brulee, Tutti Fruti, Sweet Tart, Creamsicle.  Go A's! ;)

Feeling Pinkie

I think pink gloss is an essential tool for prettying up lips in the summertime.  We've been experiencing an early onslaught of hot-hot-hot weather in Northern California (it's projected to be in the 90's tomorrow!), so I've been busting out all the pinks in my stash.  Holding auditions for my go-to pink of the season!

Below are a few shots of one of my favorites - InFATuation in "La Lip Jolie."  It's part of the now discontinued Fusion Beauty line, but you can still find it on
