Revlon ColorBurst Lacquer Balms

These are Revlon's most recent launch (I covered the matte balm's previously here) So I had to go out and buy them and see what the hype was all about.

I have 2 (at the moment), the range consists of 10 balms ranging from browns to pinks. I have the 2 brown shades here to review.


Ingenue is a light brown shade and when applied to the lips it is a very sheer colour and only gives a hint of colour. I noticed when applied to the lips it also gave off a tingling sensation (so unsure if the balms have a thing in them to plump up the lips.

This would be good for when you just want a hint of colour on the lips and nothing to dramatic or bright. I would wear this for a natural look or a 'I'm not wearing make-up or am I?' kind of days.


Coy is the darker of the shades and shows up a lot more on the lips then Ingenue. The balm applies easily and smoothly to the lips. This has to be my favourite out of the two as it adds a bit more colour then Ingenue does.

Overall they are nice on the lips and apply fantastically, but if I had to choose between these and the matte balms, I prefer the matte balms a lot more then these.

Thanks for tuning in
