I've been on a couple different missions lately, one of which is to find the perfect sheer red lippy. Revlon Lip Butter in Red Velvet isn't it, but it has become my favorite go-to, every day red.
I just love the quilted packaging on these things.
Obvi, I've used this a few times :) The Lip Butters are great because of how moisturizing they are. I've been using a couple of the lighter shades off and on for the past year and my only issue is the longevity, but Red Velvet doesn't have that problem-- maybe because of the red pigmentation. It's super moisturizing AND long lasting-- a red I don't need to wear balm underneath. Beautiful.
Red Velvet is a darker, bluer leaning shade of red with an ever-so-slight provocation towards brick. It's a great, wearable daytime red because it is very slightly sheer with a touch of gloss. It does require reapplication throughout the day, but as the glossiness fades from each wear, it leaves lips with the prettiest stain. Application is great. I've learned to use a clear pencil under all my reds, but as I reapply this during the day, I don't keep up with the liner and I don't get any bleeding. It's the most perfect, low maintenance red I've tried. It makes me want to put a gigantic dollop of cream cheese frosting on it and take a bite, too.
So, the mission continues for a nice, sheer red but I'm stoked to have Red Velvet in my life ♥
What about you? Got any favorite Lip Butters? or a rec for a sheer red?
Thanks for reading!
