    Fig Jam looks lovely on you! I agree that these Lip Butters aren’t very moisturising but lean towards being slightly drying but I’m just glad that the Lup butters I h e do not settle into the lines of my lips! Nevertheless, I still like them for their affordability thought! :)

      I must agree with you about the affordability – a nice wallet friendly pick me up!

    Yay! We both posted about Revlon Lip Butters today :) And actually, I’m kinda glad that we have similar thoughts about these babies. I thought I was the only one who didn’t fall in love with them.

    I just swatched them at BHG yesterday and Fig Jam looks straight up brown on me – nowhere like the shade you get. :( Guess my choice will be with Sugar Plum…

      How odd – it must be that Fig Jam reacts differently with our skin tones :) Its a very nice, unexpected colour, but perhaps not for everyone, based on the feedback here :)

    Of course we have to try this based on the online raves! Over the weekend, I got the Fig Jam. It looks really good on my lips and with my skin tone. Been thinking of picking up another one but the other colours available here do not appeal to me. Shall wait a bit and see if they are bringing in more colours. I am keen on Sweet Tart.

      Yay for Fig Jam! I’m glad you liked this one too – it was a bit of a sleeper hit for me in terms of colour although the texture pales next to the more opaque Strawberry Shortcake texture :)

      Haha you just have to see what the hype is about right? I bet you, you’ll pick one up soon enough! ;)

    I was thinking of getting this because of all the raves I have read! But when I tested it from the store, it seems too soft for me too … I hate it when my lippies get damaged like that :) but those colors you got really look good on you PB! :)

    • Paris B
      February 12, 2012

      Thank you Issa :) The soft texture does bug me although it only got that way when I swiped on my hand and not on my lips so there’s that to be thankful for!

    Fig jam reminds me of smearing raspberry jam on my lips to emulate “lipstick application” when I was a wee child.

    That is all. :D

    i also decided to get out of my rose/berry lip colours so i got Strawberry Shortcake. i’m not sure, but i find that the one with shimmer (peach parfait i’m looking at you) is a little bit more pigmented?

    fig jam was just a straight up brown for me when i swatch but it looks a bit brown coral on you?

    • Paris B
      February 12, 2012

      I thought the other way around – that Strawberry Shortcake was more pigmented than Fig Jam – for me anyway :) I hated Peach Parfait – it swatched nothing but glitter on my hand eww :P I think Fig Jam appears different on different skin tones, and for that, I must love it! :D

    I got both of these in Peach Parfait and Strawberry Cupcakes. And both of these have different texture as well. Not sure why but Fig Jam look very brownish on me. I am aiming for Cherry Tart or Sugarplum as well. Ahh..Can’t decide. But Malaysia has the best price for Lip Butters comparing it to Spore and US.

    I do agree is a bit drying after a few hours of application and it doesn’t really last long. So you have to keep re-applying.

      Yep I personally feel Peach Parfait has the worst texture out of the 8 we get, because its got that awful chunky glitter in it. Perhaps you have to keep applying because its meant to emulate a lipbalm which we are encouraged to reapply often too :)

    IT’S NOT JUST YOU, PARIS. I have the same complaint with these and the Clinique Chubby sticks and the Tarte pencils. They’re not moisturizing at all for me! I have just one of these (because I had to see what all the hype was about, too), and I don’t love it. I don’t hate it, but I definitely don’t see what all the fuss is about!

    • Paris B
      February 12, 2012

      I love you Larie! :D We must have similar fussy lips that can’t understand the hype and fuss about these lipbalm-lipstick hybrids

        I like the colour but it’s not as moisturising as I thought it would though :( Hmm…

    Hmm if u apply lip balm before u apply the rest of your makeup, then blot the excess off (after u apply the rest of your makeup) and apply lip stick or lip butters or chubby sticks, it might make a lot of difference.. just my two cents :)

    • Paris B
      February 12, 2012

      Yep indeed a lip balm before lipstick will help. But the point of these sorts of hybrid lipsticks was the lip balm factor so I did expect them to be more moisturising. I don’t usually use lip balm and I don’t have problems with other types of lipsticks but its always a good tip to bear in mind :)

    I think I might have just gotten over this sheer lipstick phase… I’m all for lipbalms but sheer lipstick, maybe not. Yaye! Got to save a little bit more :) Can you please blog about beauty boxes in Msia? I’m really curious:)

      I still like sheer lipsticks – always have since my Japanese makeup days. Now, if we’re talking sheer quality lipsticks, I look to the Japanese. They manage to make a lipstick pigmented yet sheer with gloss and shine so you look polished yet demure and best of all, doesn’t dry out the lips :D

    Me likey strawberry shortcake. Such a girly shade on you. I actually placed on order via a US spree for that color and cotton candy (unavailable here). As usual we have such limited colors unlike in the US. Did a double take when I saw it in Watsons last weekend, but it was priced at RM36 and not RM25 so now I”m wondering if it was a mistaken on their part in that store. If it’s RM25 then will probably pick up another shade or two :)

      Strawberry Shortcake is unexpectedly pretty on :D I think the price you saw must be an error. Its RRP is RM25 and in Guardian its RM24.90 – perhaps we can expect more colours in time to come :)

    Am I the only one who finds the packaging fiddly and annoying because it’s difficult to get a grip on the little black piece at the bottom? XD

    I’ve been wearing Lollipop and really like it! I find these lip butters to be adequately moisturising and didn’t really have issues with them drying out my lips as badly as some others.

      Good for ya! :D They don’t cause my lips to peel but they aren’t exactly drenching my lips in moisture either. Still for the price, I think they can’t be beat!

    Am I weird for not really wanting this? :-/
    It doesn’t really seem to intrigue me. Or perhaps I’m just not much of a balmy lipstick person?

    • Paris B
      February 12, 2012

      Not weird at all – I didn’t think it was your type of lipstick anyway! ;)

    I love how you added the Singapore price as well, you definitely catered to my needs :P

    anyway, the revlon lip butter sounds good, but this time i didn’t get the ‘please-buy-me-and-take-me-home’ feeling :) on the other hand… *runs over to read Day 5 of 30: Dior Addict Icone review*

    • Paris B
      February 12, 2012

      HAHA!! Had the opposite effect on you apparently! ;) So… did you end up picking either? ;)

      • Christina
        February 13, 2012

        Nah, I’ll give the Revlon ones a miss. As for the Dior ones… I’ll pop by and check them out as soon as I have time and the money (can’t decide now which one I lack more!)

        Thanks for the great review :)

    Hi Paris!
    My first time postin here ;)
    I wore macaroon for the 1st time yest n like how flattering it looks on diff skintones.
    Now ur makin me lem after strawberry shortcake! I wanted to get it before but was afraid it’s one of those mod whitish pinks that’s hard to pull off but ur swatches r makin me reconsider…

    • Paris B
      February 12, 2012

      Hi Nina! When I first looked at the colour of Strawberry Shortcake in the tube, I had the same thought you did! But on lips, it seems to take on some warmth from lip colour so it doesn’t look as washed out. That said, everyone seems to love Macaroon – I should have picked that one hehe… :)

    Think i might just be getting fig jam to give these a go. Looks good on you! But from my past lip products experiences with Revlon, i have issues with the scents. I hope this might actually be my first “i like it” lip product from the brand. Btw, as many online compares this to be a dupe for clinique’s about lipstick in black honey, I don’t think they are anywhere alike. This applies more brown than plum whereas black honey is much more plummy red.

    • Paris B
      February 12, 2012

      Ah from what I recall there is no scent in this one so you’re safe! ;) Would you believe that I’ve never tried Black Honey? We don’t get the colour here (I know SG has it and I know its really weird but there you go!) I never quite got into the Black Honey hype but perhaps I just might be missing out on a very pretty colour :D

    Strawberry shortcake looks nice. And I noticed Ms. Strawberry Shortcake herself in the background! Loved that cartoon though I don’t know why I can’t remember her having a cat :/

    • Paris B
      February 12, 2012

      Yay! You were about the only person to bring up Ms. Strawberry Shortcake :D She did have a cat definitely – a little pink and white one :D
