|Revlon Lip Butter in Creamsicle, Peach Parfait, Tutti Frutti, and Berry Smoothie.|
I purchased Berry Smoothie next, in the hopes that I would like it more. And I did. I loved how it applied and how natural the colour looked on my lips. My lovely friend Cat (www.khatsii.com) gave me Creamsicle as part of my birthday gift last year, while I recently purchased Peach Parfait which is apparently everyone's favourite - including me. The lip butters are all very creamy, smooth, and moisturising with sheer pigmentation.
Okay, so let's get down to the swatches and individual reviews!

Creamsicle dampens down my natural lip colour when applied. It is a nude colour for a natural look. There is no shimmer or glitter to it, but it gives a glossy finish. The only thing I do not like is how it tends to emphasise the lines & dryness of my lips. They would have to be fully moisturised before applying this shade, to really pull it off.
Just gonna say, this is my favourite out of the four. It gives my lips a natural tone plus shimmer. As you can see on my arm swatch, it has micro gold glitters which leaves a 'gritty' feeling on some people, but I personally did not find this the case at all. It applies smoothly and leaves my lips looking fresh and natural.
As I mentioned earlier, I was not happy with this one since it is way too bright for my liking. But now, I actually reach for this shade quite often for my daytime look. There's no glitter but is glossy. I use it interchangeably with the Lancome L'Absolu Nu in 107 Corail Tutu for my daily uni look. They are both coral in colour, moisturising, and sheer. But I find myself reaching for Tutti Frutti more than I do for Corail Tutu.
I would describe this one as a darker version of Peach Parfait. It has red micro glitters compared to gold ones for Peach Parfait, which gives it a deeper tone. I don't wear this colour during the daytime though, because it is more on the mature side. I wear this colour when I have to dress formally for an event or for a night-time look.
Here is an arm swatch of all four. They are all very smooth and sheer.
