Revlon Lip Butters - Swatches and Review

Over the past few weeks I have become a little obsessed with the Revlon lip butters. I have four shades to show you today:
- Tutti Frutti (015) an orange colour - lovely  for spring/summer but not too bright
-Pink Truffle (001) - a gorgeous brown -toned nude.
-Berry Smoothie (050) - pink - berry colour with a little bit of glitter
