Review: Revlon Lip Butter in Sugar Frosting

I know the Revlon Lip Butters are old news in the blogosphere and have been blogged to death already, but they're one of those products which I've been meaning to purchase for ages but never got round to it. Now that I finally have and I've used it a few times, I thought I might as well do my own blog post on it!
There was so much hype around the blogging community and I was really excited to try them out out for myself, but when I went into Boots to actually buy one I have to admit I felt a little underwhelmed. My Boots store is fairly big and (I believe) they stocked all the colour of the Revlon Lip Butters, but despite me going through and swatching every colour on the back of my hand, none of them really appealed to me all that much.
I was determined to buy one though as I had a voucher for £3 off any Revlon product from Boots so I eventually went for Sugar Frosting. The colour itself I would describe as being a pale, blue-toned pink and when applying it, it didn't look very pigmented which was a little disappointing. When applied, I think it looks more of a lipgloss style product as opposed to a lipstick, as it has a very glossy finish, and I'm also a little undecided whether they're slightly overpriced for what they are.

They are however beautifully moisturising because of the Shea Butter in them, and leave my lips feeling soft and smooth. It's also longer lasting than lipglosses and is even on parr with some of the lipsticks which I own! Despite my doubts Sugar Frosting is still a nice, more neutral colour on my lips, and is a nice shade to use if you want a hint of colour for a more natual look.

I'd be interested in trying out some of the other colours to see if they have a better colour pay-off than Sugar Frosting. Does anyone have any recommendations for me to try? :)

What do you think of Revlon's Lip Butters? Do you think that they live up to the hype?
