Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Demure

Revlon Colorburst Demure

I posted last week about  a Revlon Colourburst Matte balm, and so it only seemed fair to give its glossier sister a moment in the spotlight this week. The Lacquer Balms come in the same crayon format, but are easily distinguished by their shiny packaging; like the Matte Balms, their tubes match the colour inside, making it easy to spot the shade you are looking for. They also contain the same Triple Butter mix of mango, shea and coconut butters, which makes them lovely and soft to apply, and really moisturising. 

I chose the shade Demure, as I wanted a really wearable everyday shade. This pretty nudey-pink is definitely that, and I can slick it on at any time (not even needing a mirror) and be good to go. I didn't find this one as pigmented as the Matte Balm I tried, although in fairness that one was a very bold shade, and this one is obviously meant to be far more subtle. Demure can be worn very sheer (barely there) or built up a bit for a stronger pink colour. The Lacquer Balms also contain large shimmer particles, however although I can see them in the crayon and when I swatch on the back of my hand, I really can't see any glitter on my lips (which is fine by me). 

My one criticism of this product is that this does not have a great wear time; like an actual lip balm, it needs to be reapplied quite frequently throughout the day. I would say that in that sense, it is rather like a glossier version of the lip butters, and as with those, I like applying it so much that I don't mind having to do it a bit more often. It also fades very evenly, so I don't have to worry about walking around with patchy lip colour.

Overall, I am really happy with this new little addition to my lip collection, and would love to try a few more from the range. Next time I'd give one of the brighter shades a go, such as Flirtatious or Tease.

    1. Thank you. It is very light on me (I have seen paler girls swatching it on lips, and it seems brighter on them) but it is so easy and wearable. x

  7. I've been considering this shade for a little while. I think this is my favourite shade of the range as it's the most wearable and suitable for my skin tone. xx
