Today's edition of Frugal Friday features the Revlon ColorBurst Lacquer Balms. Revlon First came out with their Balm Stains which I discussed here. The Lacquer Balms have a bit more of a shine to them than the Balm Stains.
This is a retractable chubby lip crayon. They retail for around $8.99 depending on the store you visit.
I have 4 shades, Demure, Ingenue, Whimsical, and Flirtatious. These aren't as long lasting as the Balm Stains but they are just as pigmented. These also have the slight minty taste as the Balm Stains and feel very moisturizing on the lips.
These crayons have a bit of sparkle to them and a lot of shine. Demure is a pinky nude shade with a lot of shimmer to it. This is not my favorite color since I don't like frosty pinks on me. Ingenue is more a brown-ish nude with a sheen. Whimsical is a very bright pink. Flirtatious is almost a candy red with a pink undertone.

It's actually a very pale pink color. This lip crayon did not look good on me at all. It accentuated every line on my lips and my lips were freshly exfoliated and moisturized. I tried this lippie several times and never got it to look right. It looks like I took an actual crayon to my lips and it made my lips look very dry and crackly (trust me, not seeing a lip swatch is a good thing!)
I really love the Revlon Balm Stains and Lacquer Balms so I'm not too bummed that the Matt Balms don't work for me.
Have you tried these? Which one is your fave?
Have a wonderful weekend!
