Here is part two of my little Revlon Rave. If you haven't already seen it I also have a post on the recently launched Colorburst Balm Stains (here), which are gorgeous too. The Lacquer Balms are a bit of a different animal - here you get shine & glossy finish. It isn't as glossy as I thought it would be (Revlon website says vinyl finish) but to me that is a good thing - it doesn't feel sticky or gloopy on the lips. The formula is lovely & moisturising, it contains, as do the matte stains, Revlon's triple butter complex of of Shea, Coconut and Mango butters. The color payoff is quite strong and the balm, at least the shade I have, comes out quite opaque. I went for colour 120 Vivacious, it's quite a warmish pink/red and has no shimmer in it, like some of the other Lacquer Balms do. I was really impressed with the staying power of this product and, like with all lip crayons, it is so easy to touch up your lips on the go. There is 10 lovely shades in the collection & I will certainly be going back to pick up a couple more.
I am generally not a huge fan of very glossy lips but find that this product can be blotted down with fingers for a slightly more natural finish. I definitely prefer the matte version of these but for those of you who prefer a more glossy lip, this is a great product, very much worth checking out!
Have you tried any of these yet?
