|From Top to Bottom: Heavenly Berry & Caring Coral.|
Ever since the Revlon Lip Butters were released last year, other drugstore brands have jumped on the bandwagon and launched similar products, creating a deja-vu kind of experience. As I mentioned in my last post, I didn't like the Revlon lip butters because they didn't really do anything for me. The colour range was horrible and the butter itself was too soft resulting in half of the product to go on in one application.
The Colour Riche Balms however provided a much more positive and pleasant experience. While looking around in the makeup isle at Walmart, these balms instantly caught my eye and I ended up buying two colours; Heavenly Berry & Caring Coral. The formula has SPF 15, which is something I appreciate since it's nice to have extra protection. Although the sunscreen does give them a funny taste, they smell amazing; a mix between cotton candy and tropical fruit (delicious!).

As you can see based on the swatches above, even though both are different shades, they appear slightly similar and while layered don't show a greater difference. However, when applied to your lips, the shades show up better and since my lips aren't very pigmented, I love the fact that they add natural colour with a light glossy finish.

I really hope you guys enjoyed this review. Tell me, what do you think of these balms?
