I personally don't love the packaging, I think the plastic does look a little cheap. However I do like the fact that the tops are coloured for each shade making it easier to find the one you're looking for.
Allthough saying that a bright purple top doesn't really represent the colour that much but it is a nice idea.
Onto the actual product, unlike some of the Revlon Lip Butters there is no glitter in these at all which I do like. They are very 'balmy' on the lips, when I first tried it I think I applied too much becuase it did feel a little greasy. I wouldn't wear a lip balm underneath these because again I think it would make it feel greasy.
The shade Tempting Lilac is truely beautiful, it is the perfect pink/purple shade and looks lovely on the lips. I don't find it lasts long on the lips but it does leave some colour behind when it has worn off. I would say 1-2 hours maximum wear if you're not eating or drinking.
So are they better than the Revlon Lip Butters? For me I do prefer the formula of the Lip Butters but the colour range of the LorealRouge Caresse Lipsticks are more suited for everyday wear. So it is hard to decide between the two! This lipstick has been in my handbag every since I bought it and i've worn it most days because it is so easy to apply and wear which proves to me that it's a great product!
Loreal Caresse Lipsticks retail for £7.99 (same price as the Lip Butters!) and is available here.
