Layering Revlon Lip Butter & L'Oreal Colour Riche Balm

I love Revlon Lip Butters and L'Oreal Colour Riche Balms equally and I personally think they deserve all the hypes indeed.
However, they are not perfect and both leave a little bit something to be desired.

For L'Oreal Balms, I would like a bit more color and lasting power although I adore how moisturizing they feel on my lips with glossy finish and added sun protection.
For Revlon Lip Butters, I love how they go on as if they are hugging my lips, but I want them to be more moisturizing and consistent in coverage.  The biggest problem I have with Lip Butters is that they seem to vary in coverage and moisture level depends on colors. 
I know some of you are praising Lip Butters for their good pigmentation, but I kinda wish the darker colors went sheerer cause they look a bit much on my pigmented lips. 

So I thought...why not layering them?  :)

I layered similar toned L'Oreal Balms over the darkest colors of my Revlon Lip Butters, and I am very happy with the results!

Colour Riche Balm in Heavenly Berry
very pretty but super sheer!

ColorBurst Lip Butter in Raspberry Pie
also gorgeous but the color is too intense for me to pull easily.
This particular color is just like a regular lipstick to me. ; /

the layered happy medium :)

L'Oreal Colour Riche Balm in Rose Elixir
+ Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Cherry Tart

Colour Rich Balm in Rose Elixir
gorgeous pale pink but no staying power

ColorBurst Lip Butter in Cherry Tart
It is quite sheer but the coverage can be blotchy sometimes

When layered, the color is softer and it covers very evenly.

I would highly recommend layering these two lippies. ;)
Revlon Lip butters provide good color base and the Colour Riche Balms add moisture and shine.
There are many shades available from the Revlon Lip Butters and the L'Oreal range covers pretty much all color palettes with minimal pigmentation, so the possible combinations would be endless. :)
