A lot can change overnight! After my frenzy of posts last night about the new shades of Revlon Lip Butters currently being spotted "in the wild," I received some extremely helpful comments and I want to set the record straight about the current Lip Butter shade Peach Parfait.
After comparing what's currently on the Ulta website (the original shades and new shades) and seeing that the original shade, Peach Parfait, is not on the Ulta website, I said that it MIGHT be discontinued, with a new shade in its placed called Pink Parfait.What led me to believe that this MIGHT be the case is that, in the frenzy of what was happening last night, I thought that some readers said they actually spotted Pink Parfait in person (going back over the tweets/emails/Facebook messages this morning, this turned out to NOT be the case). Also, if you'll recall, Peach Parfait was one of the shades that was on clearance at some CVS locations during the last Beauty Clearance Sale (yes, I realize that not all CVS locations had Lip Butters on clearance--but Peach Parfait was on clearance at some locations).I agree that the names Peach Parfait and Pink Parfait are quite similar, and it crossed my mind that maybe Ulta just had a typo on their site all these months and that Pink Parfait was actually supposed to be Peach Parfait all along. But that seemed a bit strange to me and, coupled with the information above, I felt fairly confident that Pink Parfait was a new shade.BUT, then I received a comment from reader schwabj, who informed me that she noticed the shade Pink Parfait on the Ulta site about six months ago. And if you look at the image of Pink Parfait, it does look similar to Peach Parfait--I'm looking at my tube of Peach Parfait in person and they do look alike.Therefore, I'm going to go ahead and say that, as of now, I don't believe that a new shade called Pink Parfait exists. I believe that the shade on the Ulta website is in fact Peach Parfait, and that Peach Parfait is NOT going to be discontinued. To further support this, many of you have said that Peach Parfait is still very much on the Revlon website (usually when a shade is discontinued, brands are pretty quick to remove the shade from their website).I could very well be wrong, but this is what I believe to be true as of the time of this post.
Part of the danger in trying to bring you the latest news in the world of drugstore beauty is that sometimes I'm processing a lot of information at once, and none of it is official (directly from the brand itself). If I receive numurous tips and info at the same time (as was the case with the new Lip Butter shades last night), it can be a challenge to sort through information and bring you a summary of the info I've received. I try very hard to be 101% accurate with everything I post here, but I do make honest mistakes that I try to correct as soon as I'm made aware of them. Thanks for your understanding, and thanks so much to all of you for willingness to offer your insights, information and opinions here. I could never in a million years do this without you and I'm forever grateful.
