So Priceline was having a buy one get one free promo on their lip and nail products, and pretty much the whole aussie beauty blogosphere were excited because that meant that the Revlon Lip Butters were included in the sale! Yay :) No one was really going to pay $21.95 for 1 lip butter....right? I mean, they're only around $7 in USA! So the buy 1 get 1 free was pretty good, equating to $11 each which is about how much you can get them on ebay, I think.
I only bought two colours from the Lip Butter range, even though there are well over 15. I just found that a lot of them were somewhat the same-ish shade and majority had shimmer....so I just picked up Peach Parfait and Berry Smoothie.
Swatches on the hand looked different (at the time) but now that I have them in my hands, I find the two shades to be so similar on swatches, that I regret not getting the more pinker colours, like Sweet Tart or Cotton Candy.
As always, Revlon packaging is gorgeous. They close with an audible click and I like how there's different cap colours.
In the following photos, Peach Parfait is on the left, and Berry Smoothie is on the right.
You can see the amount of shimmer in Peach Parfait, and I know it might put you off cos you're scared of a disco ball party on your lips but all that glitter/shimmer kind of looks like a sheen, and it's really pretty. Kind of reminds me of Nars Orgasm blush and that whole rose gold shimmer thing going on :)

It's in the below swatch that you can see the shimmer. Berry Smoothie has some shimmer as well, but not as noticeable
I really like both colours, they're really wearable, they're really moisturising and the colours I got where pigmented to a degree where it wasn't a lipstick :) I really like Berry Smoothie. It's leading me to the way of darker lip colours without going overboard. One little step at a time...hehe.
I really want to go back and get some other pinker shades. If I can find them.
Did you guys grab any lip butters? (from Aus) or which is your fave shade? (international readers) :)
