While the Drew Berrymore’s range has existed in the States for a while now, I gasped when I saw this at my local Wal-Mart. Not only was truly impressed by the vast selection, but was surprised to see the range of products here in Canada. With a handful of products to try out I finally settled for the lip butter in Petal to Metal.
My biggest problem with this lipstick is the packaging. While it the packaging is undeniably cute the lid does not stay on. I’m not talking about it falls off after you drop it I’m saying it falls off even in the comfort of your own makeup bag. As for the product itself Petal to the Metal does pack a good punch of color. The texture of this lipstick is buttery and smooth as the name suggests. On me this lipstick wore for about an hour after that things began to look patchy. With color only on the edges of my lips it looked like the lip liner trend gone horribly wrong.
I now have a pink stained makeup bag and memories of hot pink patchy lips. Basically what I am getting to is I don’t and I can’t recommend this lip product to you. Hope is not lost, because there are some fantastic, buttery lip products from the drugstore with effective packaging. If you were looking for a buttery lipstick from the drugstore I highly suggest the Revlon Lip Butters.
