What Lip Butters Are
They are lip products with soft, conditioning and moisturizing effects. They are buttery, smooth and soft when applied on the lips, almost like creamy lipsticks. Also, they help relieve dry, chapped or sore lips. Some lip butters are formulated with exciting and endearing fragrances, and others exist with no fragrances.
Furthermore, they have little to zero waxing, little staying power and are more moisturizing than lip balms and glosses. They are very comfortable, non-sticky and easier to apply.
Comparison Overview – Revlon Lip Butter Cherry Tart vs Candy Apple
The lip butters are great products, enriched with various natural butters like mango, shea, and coconut to soothe and pamper the lips.
These butters give them a smooth, creamy and soft texture, relieving dry and chapped lips.
Additionally, their coverage is buildable, sheer to medium, with a high shiny, glossy and glassy finish. And they are both tasteless and fragrance-free.
Their shades are similar, though. But the Cherry Tart has a deeper red shade than the Candy Apple, just like the Revlon Really Red and Certainly Red Lipsticks. They have pink and orange undertones respectively.
As great as they are, they have some downsides. One of them is their short staying power. They can only stay on for a maximum of three hours.
Besides this, their soft texture means a risk of smudging and messing up the tube.

Our Take – Revlon Lip Butter Cherry Tart vs Candy Apple
We like their shades, moisturizing qualities, and undertones. They don’t require the ceremony or seriousness that comes with lipsticks yet they can serve in their place.
But their quickness to transfer and their short staying power don’t sit well with us. We acknowledge they come with the territory of lip butters, though. So if you don’t quite mind, these two lip butters are quite the buy, especially if you have dry or chapped lips.
