Review: Revlon ColorBurst Lacquer Balm, Shines & Light-Weight Effortless Balm

Fell in love with Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm and now time to turn my head over Revlon ColorBurst Lacquer Balm. How is the Lacquer Balm different than Matte Balm? You’ll find out from this review. Lacquer Balm is also part of the Revlon ColorBurst™ Crayon Collection and they are only available just this month, comes in 8 different shades.

Revlon ColorBurst Lacquer 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 8 collectible, craveable colors.

• 8 shades of high shine, shimmering lacquer and balm-­‐like moisture

• Light peppermint fragrance

•Propel/Repel crayon means no sharpening required’ – Revlon

Revlon ColorBurst Lacquer Balm 140 Coy Timide

The shade that I received is 140 Coy Timide and the packaging is exactly like the rest of the collection. However, it comes with shiny layer on the outside to indicate that this is the Lacquer Balm. For this shade, I do notice that there are slight gold shimmers just by looking at the balm. No sharpening needed from its propel crayon and retractable.

Coy Timide, is a brown shade with red undertone. The gold shimmers are unnoticeable from the swatch and the texture is light and finishes off glossy. It is quite pigmented and this definitely reminds me of the texture for Revlon Just Bitten Kissable.

Revlon ColorBurst Lacquer Balm On Lips

I could definitely tell that this gives a great color to my lips. Despite of being dark and brown, I liked how it looks more red instead. Again, this has that refreshing slight mint scent just like the rest of Revlon ColorBurst Crayon Collection. Also the gold shimmer is unnoticeable while having it on the lips but I believe it helps to reflect light to give more shine to the lips.

At first, I was really worried if Coy Timide could be too dark for me but I guess everyone could pull off dark shade depending how you wear your makeup. In this review, I’m your vixen, RAWR~ I guess this shade is good to go if you are feeling bold and sexy. You could also see how shiny it is on my lips and the reflection of my ring light.

Revlon ColorBurst Lacquer Balm Ingredients

In the ingredients listing, there isn’t alcohol or paraben. This is definitely a plus point!

Above all…

This is almost the same version of Balm Stain, without staining your lips. I believe not everyone like their lips to be stained and I think this is suitable for them. The texture is light and easy to use. Because it is so light that you can’t really tell that you are wearing it. I wouldn’t say this gives the best shine but it’s shiny enough to make your pout look kissable. Upon wearing this, it doesn’t dry my lips and it wears off after having a meal. This may not be your shade but there’s other shades to choose from!
