Revlon ColorBurst Lacquer Balm in Whimsical £7.99
Like every beauty lover around I was far too excited when Revlon announced they would be launching a new range of Matte and Lacquer balms. I am a big fan of the Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains and ended up with almost every shade when they launched last year, so my hopes were high and my purse was ready for these to launch! I have picked up a few shades of both the Lacquer and Matte formulas so will add swatches over the next couple of weeks, pretty sure I will be buying the rest of the range too if I can find some spare money!
I love this sort of product because of how quick and fuss free they are to apply, it can be done wherever you are and without a mirror if (yep I've tried!) The chubby twist up pencil means it's super easy to use and there is no need to sharpen, perfect packaging! The Revlon ColourBurst Lacquer Balms have a high shine finish and are infused with shea, mango and cocoa butter to keep lips soft and hydrated. Like the Kissable Balm Stain's these have the slightly minty taste and scent, which I personally really like but probably isn't something everyone would be a fan of. They swatch sheerer on the skin but are easily built up to a strong pigmentation with two coats on the lips, but you can build them to be as sheer or as opaque as you want.
I really like Whimsical and am actually a big fan of how shiny it looks. It's moisturising and comfortable to wear, I forget it's there most the time! Now someone take my purse before I go buy all the other shades...
You can pick up the Revlon ColourBurst Lacquer Balms here. They retail for £7.99 but are pretty much always on some sort of offer. Are you a fan?
