I love lip hybrids. Take a balm, and a gloss, and lipstick and smoosh it all together? Yes, please! I know, that's likely not how such products are made, but you get the idea. Mark. All Butter Now Lip Treats have that wonderful hybrid thing going on, and they now have four new shades. I wasn't the biggest fan of the original shades I tried, but I've got to say, the newbies are kind of perfection. Read on for a closer look at Terra Hotta, Mauvelous, Razamatazz, and Fired Up.


Mark. All Butter Now Lip Treats have a soft, balmy feel with the shine of a gloss and the pigment of a lipstick. Some shades have a more transparent, squishy texture, while others have a creamier base, but both styles pack a lot in the colour department. The formula is very easy to wear and apply, and is quite hydrating during wear. The formula is enriched with shea, cocoa and mango seed butters plus vitamin E to give lips that extra moisture boost. 


Terr Hotta is a creamy, natural tan-pink. It looks more nude in the tube, but is a really nice everyday type of shade. Mark. calls this shade a sheer to medium, in terms of coverage, but I found it to be much closer to full, as it hides the scar on lip quite well.


Mauvelous is a plummy shade with a bit of a neutral twist. The shade has a creamy base and a light smattering of golden micro-shimmer. Mark also calls this one sheer to medium, but it's definitely full coverage.


Razzmatazz is a vivid raspberry shade with a transparent, squishy texture. The shade is bold, but not too bright, with a nice dose of shine.


Fired Up is a vivid, orange-kissed red, with a cream meets jelly texture. It's got some transparency, but is also buildable to full coverage.

Overall, I really like these! It would be love if they didn't have a watermelon like scent (I'm not a melon fan) but the scent isn't overpowering and doesn't linger. I just don't like it. I know Mauvelous and Terra Hotta will be a staple shades for me, but you really can't go wring with any of them. What do you think? Do you like hybrid formulas?
