I wanted one of these so badly. Some says they are better than Revlon lip butter. Personally I prefer Revlon’s. I don’t know how to categories these, so I will just put them as lip butter. It is just more of a colored lip balm. It feels like that. They feel light, really like a whisper on your lips. Pigmented yes, but not all of them. I get the colors people said are the most pigmented. I also think that they swatched beautifully but lacking in reality. On the lips, they are quite sheer and doesn’t feel as nice. Cause they are just so thin, it’s like a layer of something, not that comfortable. I mean it’s thin but you can feel it. It’s hard to explain.
Anyway the colors I have here are beautiful nonetheless. This is a purple shade A Plum Prospect. It’s very sheer pinkish purple. I guess cause my lips are pigmented, that’s why the color will show more as it is just deeper.
Red Around Town is a sheer red, that is more warm and towards the orange side of the spectrum. I am crazy about red, that’s why I kept buying red lips. But I don’t wear them for work. So it is nice to have a red that is not so bright. This is just light enough for daily. The appearance is more of a jelly.
Who Wear It Red-er is a magenta red. It doesn’t look so red in picture, but in real life yes it can fall under the reds. This is really in your face bright. Even though it is not a lipstick consistency, but like a lip balm, it just has a good color payoff. Not bad, but I do not like it as much as I can’t use this for work but it is too weak as a going out lip product. I will only use this if I need color just to go down or when I just don’t bother much.
Now, let’s talk about color whisper in general. I heard that people say the colors are sheer, that’s why I choose the three that is supposed to be more pigmented. I guess I am not disappointed in that. But I can see how other shades can be sheer, I mean I can just imagine it. The consistency of these, I’ll call them lip butter, as I don’t know what category to put them in. They are just more like a lip balm. Personally I prefer Revlon lip butter, as they are just nicer on the lips.
Color whisper is just a bit overprice when the feel of it is more like a balm. It just that the result on the lips is more jelly-like. So it look nicer than lip balms. But I do have a lipstick from 17 which is so much nicer in texture. (note to self to post on 17 lipstick :p)
So overall, I do not think it is worth to pay so much for this. If the price is like $5-$7 then sure cause lip balms are priced that much. One thing I do think this is good for is on days you need color on your lips but your lips are chapped. These cover those dry lips. So that is the advantage.
