Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in 245 Audacious and Lacquer Balm in 135 Provocateur
Whoever decided that lip crayons would be a great idea, I bow down to you! Ever since these babies were first released, they have been my saving grace on my lazy make up days (and heaven knows how many of those I have). I find lip crayons to be so easy to use and much much easier to apply sans mirror versus regular lipstick. So when Revlon released their newest additions to lip crayon party, Lacquer and Matte Balms I was all over that. I bought these two in a Priceline 2 for 1 sale many many moons ago and I have been wearing them both regularly since. I've got to say, these balms really satisfy my obsession with coral and bright pinks! With so many variations of the shades it was so hard for me to just pick two to trial (I will definitely being go back for more though not that I technically need more but you know ...)
Out of the two formulas I was most impressed with the matte balms mainly due to my internal and irrational fear of matte lipstick. Now don't get me wrong I love pretty much everything matte - matte eyeshadow, matte foundation, all things that I adore. But matte lipstick? Honestly that scares me just a tad. But these Revlon Matte Balms, ahhh-mazing! They applied really well and didn't dry out my lips at all. I think they are also just a bit moisturising that I almost forgot that I was actually wearing matte lipstick (thumbs up from me). The colour pay off is great and they last a really long time, and even when they start to wear off they leave a stain just like the original Colourburst balms.
The Lacquer balms on the other hand I find to be very similar to the original, though slightly more moisturising and glossier. Both the matte and lacquer balms have the same peppermint scent as the originals, though I find the new formulas to have a better colour pay off. Overall, I am thoroughly impressed with these balms and I'm seriously itching to purchase some more.
What formula do you like best from the new Revlon Colourburst balms?
