The Butter Pang (I might have missed something by not knowing Korean...Is it supposed to sound like smacking?) is another item mom got me from her trip to Korea.
The packaging is equally juvenile but the relative simplicity is easier on my eyes. I mean, it's plastic but it feels thicker and more solid than lip balms from Nivea and Maybelline. Anyway, I kind of like that it gives a satisfying snap-click when I close this.
There are three colors in this range, a clear soft pink that adapts to your pH, an orange peach and this bright juicy pink call Pink Butter. I suppose this also has that skin-adapting chemical (forgot the name but it's the same one used by different brand, that's why they all turn glaring blue-pink on me) because it appears brighter and stains a little.
Pink Butter has a thicker jelly-balm formula (kind of like Fresh Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment but more condensed/solid without the slip and wobbly)that deposit a nice, thick (enough)layer of tint. It has a plush translucency but it stays on the lip much better than all the tinted balm and many of the sheer lipsticks I have tried. The smell is a synthetic peachy floral that's much more pleasant than the plastic-sweetness from the Peritint Crayon.
Pink Butter, Peripera Peritint Peritint Crayon Fruity Mint and Maybelline Baby Lips Crystal in Pink Quartz
Butter Pang Pink Butter on Lip. The shine has a decent staying time for a balm (within an hour) and when it wears off, the tint remains. The color is nice and bright...I am just sick of these translucent hot pink from all the pH changing products.
Anyway, I really like the formula but I don't think I will be repurchasing, as the cheapest option from eBay is around 9 bucks (I thought 5 is my mental max, 3 is more like my idea of reasonable price). Unlike Peritint,this isn't available at Urban Outfitters.
