Still love the packaging, though I must report that the base of my other Lip Butter split after being dropped once (sad face), which for a clumsy girl like me is not a bonus.
They look like completely different products but I can assure you this is the same item!! I would say it is a baby pink with a gold shimmer through it which is effective but subtle at the same time. The formulation is still buttery and lovely, very moisturising and feels so pleasant on your lips. It feels like you are just wearing lip balm, but looks like a lipstick, magic!
As you can see this is a far cry from my usual bold style, it's a very feminine gentle shade. It's like the fairy cake of lipwear, where I normally go for a Black Forest gateaux. But I like it, in a pretty, girly way. It's not as highly pigmented as I would like, but its shimmer is subtly enhancing and I love that.
It's light but not in that horrible way that looks as though you have smothered your mouth with foundation. Sorry about the nostrils haha!! PIG NOSE lol.
I still feel like this clings to any dry bits you have on your lips, which does annoy me a tad as a lip balm would smooth them down and soothe them rather than highlight them. I can see why this shade was named "Cotton Candy", it does have that candy floss look to it and is just as fluffy and whimsical. I think over the coming months, with the bright eye looks we are seeing, a shade like this will get a lot of use! Overall I'm glad I picked this up, it's not my favourite purchase of the past few months but it's a good staple.
8/10, will I repurchase? Maybe, let's see how I get on with it.
