Review| Revlon's ColorBurst Lacquer Balm in #135 Provocateur!

Sunday, 2 March 2014  at 8:45 pm

Tonight I have the pleasure of reviewing Revlon's ColorBurst Lacquer Balm! Ever since I saw the review on Fun Size beauty's blog, I've been itching to get my hands on one! So, for all you South African readers out there, they launched sometime last week (I bought mine last week Friday!). Need I say that I'm absolutely in love with the lacquer balms and specifically the lacquer balms. When I swatched the matte balms in store, they were so chalky and unflattering! I guess it only happens for certain colors such as the light pinks and orange hues because those were the one's I swatched in store. I love the glossy finish of the lacquer balms and that they are super hydrating (unlike the Just Bitten Kissable balm stain range)! Coming from someone whose lips are constantly chapped these balms did not disappoint. I wore them for a full three hours and not a speck of dry, flaky skin in sight! Revlon's colorburst lacquer balms are definitely worth the hype! I hope you enjoy tonight's post! :)

I adore the shiny finish of the lacquer balms which is in stark contrast to the matte finish of the colorburst balms. I feel like the colorburst range is much more fun than the "Just Bitten Kissable" balm stain range which Revlon had originally (the packaging was boring in my opinion).

I didn't experience any bleeding after 3+ hours of wear with this lacquered up baby! When I first applied it, it was somewhat sheer, but after oxidation it went a shade darker. I did although experience some fading after I first applied it, so bear in mind you'll have to touch up (this only happened after some talking and laughing). I only touched up once though and the color was as good as new again on my lips. It has the familiar scent of mint which pays homage to the "Just Bitten Kissable" balm stain range. I don't like the minty scent or the tingling sensation it gives my lips, it reminds me of toothpaste (the scent) when I apply it on my lips *laughs*. Other than that I can't wait to get my hands on another lacquer balm which I'll be purchasing at the end of this week!
