The folks at It Cosmetics very generously provided me 3 of their Anti-Aging Lip Balm Vitality Lip Flush Lipstick Butters a while back to try out.  These lipstick butters are sheer lip colors that combine the light weight, lip-friendly nourishing properties of a lip balm with the creamy pigmentation from a lipstick.  As with all the It Cosmetics products I have tried out so far, the packaging is sleek and stylish.  The lipstick butters come packaged in slim gold and silver metallic tubes.  It Cosmetics Anti-Aging Lip Balm Vitality Lip Flush Lipstick Butters are available in 3 shades - Darling (pink), In Love (berry ?), and Pillow (nude).  Scroll on for more photos.

The It Cosmetics Anti-Aging Vitality Lip Flush Lipstick Butters definitely feel soft and creamy on the lips, and while the pigmentation is on the sheerer side, even with my pigmented lips, the colors do show up up pretty decently.  I have to ensure my lips are smooth before using these, though, since the product is so creamy that it gets stuck on to any flaky bits and makes them so much more obvious.  That apart, these lipstick butters are perfect for anyone looking for soft, easy washes of color and a moisturizing finish.  I get about 2-3 hours of staying power with these, but of course, the color will need retouching if you are planning or snacking/kissing :P  Because of their very soft and creamy texture, it's quite easy to accidentally smash them, and I definitely won't leave these lying around anywhere too warm.  Here's a look at the swatches and how the color looks on me.

Overall, I find that the It Cosmetics Anti-Aging Lip Balm and Vitality Lip Flush Lipstick Butters live up to their claims of being hydrating and conditioning while providing beautiful, soft color.  It also helps that the product is paraben-free (and cruelty-free).  My favorite way of using these, especially the nude/neutral Pillow, is to top it with a lipgloss.  The colors stay on longer because of the layering, and my lips feel quite hydrated and soft.

  1. I love the names - In love, Pillow and Darling. But why 'pillow'?

  2. These are so gorgeous - I already am loving the Vitality Lip Flush Stains, so I thought that maybe I don't need these as well, but I might need to get them anyways! Thanks for the review!

    1. I haven't tried the stains - am assuming they are longer lasting colors..these don't last very long since they are more balmy :)
