GOD INGENUE IS BEAUTIFUL. The most flattering, wearable, moisturizing nude color I have ever used. I lost it and I'm going out tomorrow to buy another, I love it that much.
Have this in whimsical and the rest are mattes and whimsical is a cute colordark fuschia color with blue undertones. Has a litle shimmer but not bad at all or have you looking like a disco ball. This os cute for a teenager or someone starting out with makeup other than that, I would not repurchase because the color did not last on my lips, Iit starts to wear off an hr or so after applying even if I dont eat or drank anything. I will be going back to my MAC and Sephora lipsticks, no more drug store lippies for me,
I wanted to give this 3.5 lippies because I like the ones I have but I wouldn't purchase any more shades or repurchase if I ran out (which is very unlikely)
Shades- 10 total, I have the shades Coquette (a light bright blue toned pink) and Flirtatious (fuchsia). Coquette is my favorite of the two.
Claims- Revlon claims, "A lacquer finish that's beyond brilliant. Balm that's beyond comforting. Our triple butter complex of Shea, Coconut, and Mango butter nourishes lips."
Scent/Flavor- Peppermint but I don't think it's strong and it doesn't linger on the lips.
Pigmentation- light to medium depending on the pigmentation of your natural lip color
Texture/finish- Smooth shimmer (some shades have glitter). These tend to stick to dry patches and accentuate lines.
Lasting Power- 2 to 3 hours with out eating or drinking. Will disappear when eating. Not kiss proof. These may leave behind some shimmer on the lips.
Packaging- Twist up jumbo lip pencil. Metallic packaging that isn't the most accurate representation of the actual color of the product (It was a turn off at first)
Price/ Availability- $6.50 at Target $10 at CVS (may vary depending on store and location)
I do personally think this is a dupe for the Tarte LipSurgence Lip Luster because they both have sheer/buildable coverage, contain shimmer, do not stain. I am not sure if any colors are dupes but the formula is super duper similar. (I own both and compared them on my lips)
Great product. I got the shade Enticing and it's a deeper red with blue undertones. The pigmentation is decent. The colour looked darker than how it applied but it was still a nice buildable colour. I didn't expect it to be super pigmented anyway because it's a "balm". I especially love how moisturising and comfortable to wear it is, I also love the glossy finish. The packaging is great and there's a nice minty scent to it. It's not that durable, however. I would definitely try this out if you want a glossy lippie that's moisturizing and easy to apply and don't mind reapplying it during the day.
I bought one of these in Enticing after lusting over them online.
Compared to Revlon's original balm stains, this is much more slick. They are somewhere in between the original balm stains and the lip butters. They have the same, minty scent of the original lip balms stains, and no minty feel.
Enticing is medium red. It almost looks like it has a very slight, cool tone to it. This does have a slight shimmer to it as well (maybe even glitter, but not overpowering or cheap looking), and leaves a somewhat glossy look on the lips, which is exactly what it's going for. This feels really great on, and lasts a long while. Once the glossy look wears away, I find myself left with a hint of color left on my lips.
These are great on the go. I can usually apply one of these without a mirror. The packaging is identical to the original balm stains, and the matte balms, but it's shiny on the outside.
As much as I think these are great, they are very similar to the lip butters in feel and appearance. Since I have products this is similar to, I probably wouldn't repurchase these. All of the colors I would lean towards are very similar to the Revlon Lip Butters I already own. If they came out with brighter colors, I could be on these in a heart beat!
I hate the shimmer they put in these, so I took a lippy off. Once the color fades, there's always shimmer left behind.
I got the color "Enticing". I am not impressed at all. I thought it would have more pigmentation than it did. Turns out I got the color mixed up with another I had seen a review on. It's a sheer red that reminds me of ketchup. Not something I want on my lips as a color. The "lacquer" wasn't impressive either. It didn't look any different to me than the normal balm stain but without the pigmentation and staying power. I would not be willing to try any more of these lacquers but I will be trying the "matte" version.
I got the lacquer balm in Coquette.
It feels too slippery on the lips for it's long wear claims, so the formula doesn't exactly inspire confidence in "staining" abilities of this product. Very pepperminty, and noticeably dries out my lips after about half an hour of wear....so there goes that moisturizing balm part.
Coquette is your typical fun, bright pink. But DAT GLITTER. So many sparkles, and as sparkles are wont to do...they travel. I decided to put this on while I was studying as a little make up break, and about an hour later - of not eating, speaking, or even drinking - there were sparkles everywhere. You will get sparkles on your chin, your lower cheeks, your jawline, above your nose...I have no idea how. Why does Revlon put glitter in everything!
The actual colour itself also travels. The only thing this balm is staining is the outline of my lips. And then there's random glitter in the center of my lips. Really not a good look.
I think I was drawn to the packaging of these new lacquer balms (also, it was on sale). It's the cute little chubby pencil packaging of the original Revlon balm stains...BUT SHINY. Soooo shiny, so pretty, but not overdone. And you can twist the end to get more glittery, pepperminty product. The lid stays on, and even my original Honey hasn't cracked (ahem, NYX), so that's nice..
Would never recommend. Waste of money (even on sale) because it does not even TRY to live up to its claims, colour (Coquette) is not unique, and too many sparkles lend it a dated, frosty look.
Wish I got the matte balms instead!
Love these! So fun and the packaging is so cute. I got the lightest pink shade and it's super fun stays on well and I like the sparkles. I also love the original balms for their staining effect
I love these... perfect sheer color that has decent staying power. Nice minty smell/taste, I like the tingles. Everyone hates the glitter but I actually like it in this product. I did not feel over-glittery at all. I got Demure, Coy, and Ingenue. Ingenue has very little color, just as a heads up. Coy was comparable to Clinique "Black Honey". Demure is peachy-pink nude and my fave. I just love these.
This collection looks to be a permanent part of the colorburst line. I saw these at Walgreens picked up two of the Neutral shades in the shinny formula and the purple and orangy shades in the matte.
Look for my matte review under that catagory. Plus with these is they go on very smooth and feel buttery. The lighter nude took several swipes to get any color other than a clear balm look. The darker one did show quite a bit of color in one swipe and in that, these were very good.
The staying power of these is not good at all. I found myself constanly applying them to keep my lips covered. And the silvery glitter residue is nasty. I like a little shine but I felt like I was applying a color that a 9 year old would wear
For me and my age group can't recommend the shinny line. I'd rather buy 1 lip queen butterfly ball or saint line for the money then spend the $6 plus for these.
