When you Find your Holy Grail Lipstick…and it’s Been Discontinued
// not sponsored
Sometimes the universe and I aren’t BFF’s. Actually, make that a lot of the time. I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect lip color for a long time, now. Finding the perfect holy grail lipstick is no easy task – most are too red for my skintone or contain chunks of glitter (and it still ends up everywhere) so you can imagine how excited I was to snag a few Revlon Lip Butters on clearance over the weekend and one shade that was absolutely perfect: Lollipop. Too bad it was on clearance for a reason.
// When you Find your Holy Grail Lipstick…and it’s Been Discontinued
Lollipop is a juicy watermelon pink with a glossy cream finish. It has the tiniest hit of multi-colored glitter particles, but it’s very faint. At first it applies quite bold and bright but it wears down to a nice soft watermelon pink color.
Like I said, perfect. But do you know what? Apparently Revlon has discontinued their Lip Butter line.
Where was I when this news was announced in March? Honestly, I was probably binge watching the Mindy Project and didn’t care about anything else besides Danny and Mindy but I’m still a little miffed. I’ve been wanting to try Lollipop for ages but I kept forgetting to grab it when I was in Target, and when I finally did, I got the last one.
And it’s such a shame because I really enjoyed this lip stick/ lip balm/ lip gloss hybrid line. I think the formula is very creamy and comfortable while packing a punch of color. But it’s sadly officially over as stores are cleaning out the last of their inventory.
If you’re also a fan of Lollipop, here’s a few similar shades from other brands that you might also like:

I’d love to know, what’s your Holy Grail lipstick?
