Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Vivacious

Hey Lovelies, hope your all having a nice weekend, I have had this Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm for ages now but I completely forgot about it and so I thought I would share my thoughts with you, even if I'm late on this bandwagon of reviewing it.

I had already tried the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains and then the Matte Balm Stains and I wanted to try the Lacquer Balms, when I looked through the Lacquer Balms the shades and the shimmer through some of them didn't appeal to me but Vivacious looked like a great shade and I instantly wanted it.

Vivacious is a deep but a bright pink with red undertones which is a perfect shade for summer with minimal eye makeup. The Lacquer Balm is really pigmented and quite long lasting as well, it last about 4/5 hours on my lips and then starts to fade but it still leaves a stain to the lips. This shade doesn't have shimmer like some of the other shades. This is a shade that will look great on a variety of skintones.

The Lacquer Balms are easy to apply and are really glossy, they feel really nice on the lips and do not stick to any dry patches and are quite moisturising.

The packaging is like most of the other lip crayons in a bullet and these Lacquer Balms have a shiny and metallic packaging instead of just coloured ones, I think the packaging is really nice. The packaging also reflects the exact colour of the lip crayon.

These Lacquer Balms cost the same as the rest of the lip crayons at £7.99 and you can buy them from Boots or Superdrug, I think they are a reasonable price for what you get.

Overall I love this Lacquer Balm it is really pigmented and glossy and it is a gorgeous shade that I love wearing. All of the different formulations of lip crayons are great and I can't choose what my favourite is, I like them all in different ways.

What are your thoughts on the Lacquer Balms and What are your favourite shades?

Hope you enjoyed reading.
