Review: Revlon Lip Butter in Peach Parfait

4 years ago

I was so excited to finally get this (just about the last person on Earth). I`ve been looking for a natural, peachy shade for the summer, so I finally had a justification for buying new makeup. I picked Peach Parfait because I saw Emma Stone wearing it in the Revlon ad that everyone`s seen. The lighting of the ad, plus her fair skin made the shade look a lot more orange, but I`ve heard that Peach Parfait`s that shade that just complements everyone.

Peach Parfait is a sheer peachy pink with golden micro glitter. There isn`t too much glitter, but you can spot them lurking in the tube and when they catch sunlight. Even with the glitter, I think this shade is very natural looking. I did find that it applies patchily unless my lips were perfectly exfoliated and moisturized. I didn`t even know I had dry flakes until I put this on.

I`ve heard people rave about this as the miracle product looks like lipstick, feels like gloss. I don`t know what shade they were talking about, but it wasn`t this one. <strong>Picture 3</strong> shows a normal application, and a heavier application. I had to press down harder, and swipe the lip butter twice to get the color intensity of the heavier application.

<strong>Picture 4</strong> is a picture of my bare lips. I`ve been sick, so my lips have been paler than usual this week.

<strong>Picture 5</strong> shows a heavy application. It restores to my lips a lively, natural pink. I do like that while the glossiness fades away in about two hours, the product is able to stain my lips that pink color. The stain stays put even when I apply lip balm over it, so I can get that glossy feel back without losing the color.

I`m not sure how to feel about Peach Parfait. It`s definitely a lovely color, and without it, I couldn`t have looked anything but pale and sick, but it`s definitely nothing special, and nothing worth raving about. For something that`s supposed to be a lip butter, it doesn`t apply very smoothly. It doesn`t carry much pigment, and is at best a tinted lip balm a common drugstore find. Was it worth the $7? Not really. But do I regret buying it? Not really. It`s wearable, it`s cute, and that`s what I was looking for.
