It is mid-June and that means summer is officially here (even if the weather outside as I'm typing this hasn't quite gotten the memo). In the past week I've noticed a definite trend when it's come to my makeup. My whole face is simple and natural but I've been gravitating towards bright fuchsia lipstick--specifically the Revlon Lip Butter in "Lollipop". It's no secret that I love the Revlon Lip Butters. Click here to see the review I posted recently where I show off all the colors I own and explain why I love the range. But this post is all about why I love "Lollipop".

"Lollipop" has the same great consistency as all of the other Revlon Lip Butters I've tried. It's smooth, easy to apply, and extremely opaque. The color is very true to the packaging and the look of the product in the tube. There is something about this product that you might not notice until you get it home, if you look very closely to my swatch you will notice that "Lollipop" does have some glitter in it. Now, normally I'm not a huge glitter fan--especially on the lips. I like a little glitter is some of my blush and highlight products but I find that glittery lipstick can sometimes look a little ostentatious. But with "Lollipop" the glitter is super subtle and hard to see unless you're super close up and looking for it.

In conclusion, I love-love-love-love this color. It is perfect for the warm days of summer. It would look great paired with a fun bikini on the beach or with a sophisticated dress for a night out. "Lollipop" is truly one of the most versatile shades I own. It's also the one that I get the most compliments when I wear it.
-Bold fuchsia color that works on wide range of skin tones
-Sleek, modern, and young packaging
-Moderate Price (around $6.00)
-Easily available at most drugstores
-Not long lasting (needs re-application after about an hour or two)
As you can see from the list above, the benefits of this product far outweigh the costs. "Lollipop" (and all the other Revlon Lip Butter shades I've owned) do not stay on the lips for very long. They tend to need re-application around an hour or two. These products aren't advertised as long lasting but I find that due to their soft and smooth formulation, the Lip Butters have a much shorter lifespan than a regular lipstick. But despite this flaw, I still love them. If you want to try a few shades I would recommend taking a look at "Lollipop", Sweet Tart", or "Gumdrop". These are all fantastic summer appropriate colors.
