Hello, lovelies. My name is Frederica, and I'm a mom to three who lives in the States. The very sweet and generous Ashleigh has offered me a chance to return to the world of blogging once more and feature a guest post on her lovely blog. Since Ashleigh lives in the UK and I'm in the Pacific Northwest, I thought it might be fun to write about a newly released product that I have personally confirmed with Revlon will be available in the UK come January 2014.
Last year, Revlon released the Just Kissable Balm Stains which everyone and their mother went crazy over here in the US. I have two which I have mixed feelings over. I like the colours but I find the actual texture kind of hard and waxy, not terribly balm-esque. Cue last month.... I started seeing some of my favourite beauty bloggers talk about the newly released Lacquer Balms and Matte Balms which are the newest incarnations of the crayon lip colour trend. I found a display at my local drugstore/highstreet that for once hadn't been picked over and had all 20 shades available. I was instantly drawn to the Lacquer Balms as I'm not a huge fan of matte lip textures, and I picked up both Coy and Ingenue.
Coy is a gorgeous ruddy brown with beautiful gold micro-shimmers (which don't really translate to the lips). I ADORE this colour, and I've been wearing it nearly every day. It is the perfect autumn red for a super fair lass like me. If you are a ginger like me, this is definitely a great red to try.
Ingenue is a perfect nude as it is a pinky brown that's glossy and very ladylike. Almost a baby pink with a touch of brown which saves me from the dreaded concealer lips look. I like this colour for the days when I can't be bothered to do a full face of makeup. It is such a pretty light colour, I don't even need a mirror to apply it. It also goes great with any heavier eye makeup look as it doesn't steal the spotlight.
If you come across these next month, definitely take a look and see if any strike your fancy. The Lacquer Balms are glossy and somewhat moisturising. A lot easier to wear than their Just Kissable Balm Stain cousins with a much better shade selection in my opinion.
Thank you for taking the time to read my little post today, I hope that you found it enjoyable. Like what you see and want more? Be sure to follow me on Instagram @delicatewhispy_.
