I thought I’d start a new feature about what’s in my diaper bag. Rather than wipes, diapers, or toys, I will feature something small for me that I keep in my diaper bag. Let’s be honest, it’s probably some sort of makeup.
I’m going start with something I found out about from my sister at Glitter and Vodka. She wrote a review of Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter and I was intruiged by what she wrote: “They are super moisturizing. I highly recommend if you are not a lipstick person, but still want some color on your lips.” This is me. I barely wear lipstick, but I have issues with gloss being sticky and not providing enough color. I knew I had to try them.
I was at a pharmacy over the weekend and snagged a couple of colors: Candy Apple (reddish orange) and Raspberry Pie (bright pink). I was thrilled at how moist my lips stayed while wearing these and very surprised at how pigmented they are. The tube is cute too.
Candy Apple was more orange than I thought it would be and it will take me some getting used to. Raspberry Pie is a gorgeous fuschia that is surprisingly flattering on my yellow undertones. Both are great colors but not appropriate for every day. I went back and bought Sugar Plum and it fits the bill perfectly.Here’s a swatch of the three colors on my wrist:
Top to Bottom: Raspberry Pie, Candy Apple, Sugar Plum
Long Story Short: Great for the price of about $7 per tube, widely available (CVS, Target, Walmart, Walgreens, Ulta), very moist, lots of color. Some of the shades are not for the faint of heart!
