You’ve probably guessed that if there is a review for Revlon ColorBurst Matte Lip Balms, a review for Lacquer Lip Balms would most probably follow suit. If the Matte Balms are the lipstick counterpart then the Lacquer Balms would be the lip glosses. By the way, ColorBurst is actually the new name for all the crayon-like products of Revlon – the Just Bitten Lip Balms before would soon be renamed, if I’m not mistaken. 🙂
High Shine Lacquer. Moisture Rich Balm A lacquer finish that’s beyond brilliant. Balm that’s beyond comforting. Our Triple Butter Complex of Shea, Coconut and Mango butters nourishes lips. In 10 collectible, craveable colors.
Just like the Revlon ColorBurst Matte Lip Balms (Read review HERE)
, the lacquer version also comes in the same crayon-like tubes with the twist-thingy on the bottom. The only difference is that this range has metallic packaging unlike the matte ones from before. The metallic tubes make it difficult to photograph with any reflection covering the brand name but they look so pretty and elegant.
These Lacquer Lip Balms also have the same triple complex of Mango, Shea, and Coconut Butter but more moisturizing on the lips than the matte ones, of course. They don’t moisturize the lips per se but they don’t worsen already-dry lips, too.
Revlon ColorBurst Lacquer Lip Balms are soft and they apply on effortlessly especially compared to matte lipsticks. It has a nice and shiny finish – much like lip glosses but lighter and less sticky. It doesn’t settle to lines but because of its texture, there’s a fat chance it could sink in cracks and highlight them way worst than the matte ones.
Much like any other lip product, the light shades don’t show off as much as the dark ones but they’re all equally smooth and light to wear. Although for something so light, theses Lacquer Lip Balms are still pigmented. I included a photo of my bare lips with the swatches below to show that even with just these, they can hide the dark rim around my lips and even out the color as well. They don’t have much staying power in them, though. With eating and drinking, they could last for a good 2-3 hours.
is a deep brown shade with a slight brick red tone to it when applied lightly. For those with dark lips, this could be their “my lips only better” shade. 130 Tease
is this dark coral shade that’s perfect for this summer – a bit hard to pull off for me but still a very pretty color, nonetheless. 125 Flirtatious
is a cool-toned pinkish red color. If you’re not yet ready to rock a scarlet red lipstick, you can ease your way to reds with this lovely shade. 110 Coquette
is a bright pink color with a hint of blue base – could probably the lacquer version of Revlon ColorBurst Matte Lip Balm in 220 Showy (See swatches HERE)
. 105 Demure
is a gorgeous nude shade that has a peachy-pink undertone. This is the kind of nude better suited for those with fairer skin or in my case, I use it as gloss over other lip colors. 🙂
Below are two of my favorite shades: Coquette and Flirtatious. I also used several other Revlon product for these FOTD’s: Revlon Nearly Naked Liquid Foundation (Read review HERE) in 180 Medium Beige and Powder Foundation (Read review HERE) in 30 Medium. Other products include: Maybelline Extreme Stiletto Mascara (Read review HERE), ELF Blush & Bronzer Duo (Read review HERE) in St. Lucia and IN2IT Brow Powder.
