Revlon Lip Butter V. L'Oreal Lip Balm




These products have both been getting a loooot of hype lately. I finally purchased a Revlon Lip Butter & figured these would be great for a head to head comparison. Obviously, they're different shades so I won't really be able to compare that.
Revlon is right, L'Oreal left
Wear
Sweet Tart is more lipsticky than Rose Elixir. It's bright and matte. I end up blotting some off. 

Rose Elixir is lighter with a tiny bit of shimmer. Not frosty or glittery though. It matches my lip shade perfectly. I like that because I don't feel self conscious wearing a bright shade (still out of my comfort zone..) but what's the point of wearing lip stuff if it doesn't make a visible difference? This glides on easier than the Revlon also. The SPF is an added bonus.
R- Revlon  L- L'Oreal
Packaging 
I feel the packaging on both could be better. If you don't have them twisted down the whole way, the tops smush on the lid. 
The Revlon's quilt design is cuter than plain jane L'Oreal. For some reason they decided to only do it on 2/4 sides. 
Gold always makes me feel like a product is fancier. I know that's not always the case though. L'Oreal's top only goes on one way, snaps into place well.  

I think these products are both basically the same. If I had to choose one, I'd recommend the L'Oreal. I know you girlies have to have some opinions about this one...please share them in the comments!!
