Rose Truffles

Thesis writing is taking over my life along with applications.
I have to admit though, I love to keep busy. :P

Anywho, a while back I was curious to try one of these lipbalm/lipstick combos. So I picked up one of Revlon's Lipbutters and tried it out. I was going to go for a super cute candy pink colour but instead I chose Pink Truffle 001.
I know you guys have probably already tried these guys but I still wanted to talk about it!



Pigmentation: For a lipbalm lipstick hybrid it gives a very nice sophisticated dark rose colour, and has GREAT pigmentation! 
Packaging: I love the packaging, every lipbalms' packaging corresponds to its actual colour. The diamond pattern appears on two side of the cover, the other two being smooth. I love the modes "Revlon" symbol at the bottom. The only thing I don't like about this packaging is the little piece of clear plastic at the tip of the cover; it cheapens the look!
Wear and Texture: The wear is about 2-3 hours for me, 4 hours on a good day. It's short wear but it is a lipbalm/lipstick hybrid so its not too surprising. The texture is super smooth and its very comfortable to put on! 
Product: The product itself is great, it gives me a bit of colour and hydration while not being too sloppy to put on. Alot of the time I find tinted lipbalms too soft and its easy to look like a clown putting them on. But this has just the right amount of balm and colour to keep the texture correct and comfortable.
Price: In Canada its about 8-9$ and In the States about 5-6$ 

Would I purchase this again? Yes definitely, I would try another colour though :) I'm very eager to try "Cotton Candy" it looks like a very bright doll pink! 

Have you guys tried any balm/lipstick hybrids? I want to try L'Oreals' next!
