Review || Revlon Lip Butter in 'Strawberry Shortcake'

I've been wanting to try the Revlon lip butters for so long now but two things were putting me off: 1) I was worried that the formula would be a bit sheer for my liking as I like a lot of colour pay-off from my lip products and 2) every time I went to swatch them in stores, the testers were disgusting, they were always really melted and mangled and that really put me off purchasing one - no one wants a melty mangled lipstick do they?

However, I called into Boots this week and saw they had a 3 for 2 offer on, so I thought that would be the perfect time to try out some products that I've been meaning to purchase for a while. So I picked up the lip butter in 'Strawberry Shortcake' which is a pale pink shade.
I have to say, the Revlon lip butters are so different to any other lip product I've tried. They are essentially a lip balm but the colour pay-off is actually really good (in this shade anyway). They are really hydrating and moisturising on the lips whilst also adding a fairly subtle but noticeable wash of colour to the lips. I hope it won't end up in the same state as the testers as the bullet is pretty firm, though a little bit did chip off the top when I was applying it to take the pictures below (bad sign!).

The colour is buildable so you can apply more product if you want the colour to stand out more. I wouldn't say these are my favourite lip products I've ever tried but I do really like them, and I probably will buy another shade from the range, though I'm not in a massive rush to do so as at £7.99 they're not the cheapest lip products around. I think this shade will be really nice for Spring and for days when I'm looking for a bit of colour on my lips but don't feel like applying a heavy lipstick.
Have you tried the Revlon lip butters? Which other shades would you recommend?
