One fact about me: I hate papaya. I've tried eating it so many times, because people keep saying how beneficial it is health-wise & beauty-wise, but I just CAN'T. I think it smells a little like butter, which I also hate. The cluster of black seeds in it also kind of creeps me out, I always get goosebumps when I look at them.
Okay, enough about the fruit, and let's move on to a different kind of papaya that I don't mind getting near my mouth and nose ~ Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Juicy Papaya, which is one of the 4 new shades that were launched recently. It's a lighter & less orange version of Tutti Frutti.
Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter Juicy Papaya Swatches
I find Juicy Papaya harder than the other Revlon Lip Butters I've used, so it's not as pigmented and doesn't glide as smoothly on my lips. I have to layer it 3-4 times for it to look somewhat opaque. It emphasizes dryness and doesn't feel very moisturizing. I exfoliated my lips very properly before applying it in the pic there, but it still refused to look perfect. However, the harder waxy texture makes it last longer on lips. It is tasteless & fragrance-free.
Price ~ £7.99 | Rs.756. In India, they cost Rs.600.
My Rating ~ ♥♥♥♥♥ 3/5.
