Cake Beauty Strawberry Shortcake Lip Butter Review

It’s Strawberry Shortcake’s 30th Anniversary and as you know Cake Beauty has introduced Strawberry’s very own collection to celebrate.

Today I’ll be reviewing the Cake Beauty Strawberry Shortcake Lip Butter.

Let’s take a look!

A sheer lip butter that moisturizes and protects with a blend enriched with shea butter, pure coconut oil, aloe vera and orchid complex.

Of course, the packaging is what appeals here. The butter comes housed in a frosted jar with Strawberry Shortcake’s image on the front.

The formula is pretty hard textured so you’re not looking at a particularly creamy lip butter here. It applies thinly and leaves a subtle hint of shine behind. To me it tastes like I licked the head of a Strawberry Shortcake doll haha! Strawberries, cream, cake, and a hint of plastic are exactly what it tastes like.

For a lip butter it’s really not all that moisturizing and the formula is a tad disappointing since it applies so thinly and doesn’t do a ton for treating my dry lips.

The taste is very novel but worn too long it begins to have a cardboard paper kinda taste thing going on.

The entire collection is sold within Canada sadly.

  • Those seeking a lighter lip butter.
  • 80’s ladies who grew up loving their Strawberry Shortcake Doll!

  • Anyone who wants a highly moisturizing lip product.
  • Those want don’t want to go through the drama of tracking products down (you may need to swap for this one or head onto E-bay or take a trip to Canada).

Aside from the super cute packaging and darling scent I really wasn’t in love with the lip butter’s formula. The taste started out nice but quickly wore away to something odd and for something that’s called lip butter I’d have expected a creamy formula to sooth dry lips but it applies very thinly and doesn’t do much for dryness.

The novelty here is of course the packaging but that’s about it.

Sadly, Cake Beauty released this in Canada only so if you’re wanting it you might need to search it out on E-bay or perhaps head to a Makeup Forum to swap.

But honestly? Don’t bother, it wasn’t that great.
