I loved my Lip Butters so much that when I first heard about these I just knew they would be right up my ally. I got these from Ulta for $7.49 and they were on a buy one get half off sale, I used hopshopgo.com to forward them to me. Just like the Revlon Lip Butters these also come in 20 shades, so there is bound to be one that will catch your fancy. The shades range from nudes to plums and some colours are more pigmented than others. I ordered six shades but it turned out that they had sent me two of the same shade *sad face*.
The packaging is really cute, the caps are tinted to the lipsticks shade. They are also slimmer than the Revlon Lip Butters. They also have a pleasant fruity scent but is does not linger, so that is a good point.

The staying power is not great I can go for two-three hours without eating but if you do have luch or dinner you will need to touch up. The big question are they similar to the Revlon Lip Butters, to me they are not very comparably. The Revlon Lip Butters are much more pigmented than the Maybelline Color Whispers. I think that they are much more closer to the L'oreal Colour Riche Balms, in terms of texture and pigmentation. Saying that I still like my Maybelline Whispers and I have been reaching for them a lot more than my Lip Butters. But that's just because I really love sheer, no fuss and easy to apply lip products.
Recommend? Yes, these are great for those who are just starting out with lipsticks or want a sheer wearable lipstick.
Repurchase? I would but they are not out in Australia yet.
