When Lip Products Get Shadey

One part of my make-up routine that I just can't get down - and believe me I try - is lips. Glosses, balms, lipsticks - I suck at them all. Matching shades is a fail for the most part (as-well as not being brave enough to wear a bold colour - see my issue?) and my general inability to pick up a lip offering that suits me means I've come across a few bloopers along the way.

Revlon Lip Butter - Sweet Tart//

Revlon is my go-to when it comes to lips, they're 'Super Lustrous' line is awesome and I love the formula of they're lip butters as they are a hybrid between a balm and a lipstick. The pigmentation is spot on and they aren't too glossy but leave my lips nourished. I already have 'Berry Smoothie' but 'Sweet Tart' is just too pink for my liking. I can just about pull it off as a full on lip but I just don't feel comfortable wearing it this way so I dab it on the lip to just get a slight colour. I love these lip butters, maybe when I am braver in the bold lip department it may make a reappearance?...

Revlon Colourburst Laqure Balm - Demure//
Again - the formula is of this balm is great and I didn't get the shade that far wrong (Hallelujah!) but this stick just holds too much glitter for my lip liking. When swatched on my hand in store I didn't notice the shimmer but when in the sun it made an appearance. The shade works a treat, but I ain't a glitter gal.

Tanya Burr Lip Gloss - Afternoon Tea//
I SO wanted to love this product but as a first time lip gloss wearer this product was just too thick and application was far from smooth. Maybe its my lips? But when applied it blotted on my pout and highlighted the creases in my lips - if that makes sense at all? - I know many bloggers rave about the range and as a regular watcher of her Youtube videos naturally I made a b-line as soon as they hit stores, but this tube is being donated to a friend - I couldn't let it go to waste, could I?

Back to square one - back to boots...
