From L-R: Matte Balm in Mischievous, Matte Balm in Standout, Lacquer Balm in Coquette, Lacquer Balm in Demure, Balm Stain in Honey, Balm Stain in Crush
I had to write a post about my favourite lip products of the moment as I've added a few more to my collection. The Revlon ColourBurst Balm Stains have been out for a while and are sold as a lightweight lipstain and moisturising balm, however more recently they have introduced their Matte Balm Stains and Lacquer Balm Stains. The Matte Balms have a velvety matte finish (shocker) and so you need to make sure your lips are nice and smooth otherwise it doesn't apply evenly. The Lacquer Balms have a glossy finish and so the colour isn't as pigmented.
I was really excited to try the new balm stains and so purchased four when I was in Florida- Mischievous, Standour, Coquette and Demure. They are so easy to apply and I love the creamy formulation. I don't wear lipstick a lot so these are very appealing to me!
I thought I would prefer the Matte Balm Stains but actually ended up liking the Lacquer finish more- the Demure shade is my absolute favourite as is a 'your lips but better type gloss'. I also enjoy how you can apply it without a mirror.
Do you have any of the Revlon Balm Stains?
You can buy the Revlon ColourBurst Balm Stains from Boots for £7.99.
