I’ve been wanting to do some on lip swatches of the Revlon colourburst matte and lacquer balm pencils since I got them but I’ve had to wait until my lips weren’t horrendous, or the light was ok or any variety of factors that kept being less than favourable. But, finally, here they are – They aren’t quite perfect but with the weather as grey and icky as it is, this is probably the best I’ll get in a long time.
You can see my initial photos HERE, these include swatches on the back of my hand and photos of the product packaging.
These are my lips with no product, as a point of reference – Though they have a tendency to show darker at different times, they were a little darker looking today which helped with the look of ‘Coy’.
Here’s the first product on the lips:
This one is the matte balm in ‘Sultry’ – As you can see, really rather beautiful. I’m really rather glad that they sent it accidentally!
This one doesn’t sit quite as nicely on my lips but I still really like it; I was hoping for a slightly more pigmented, matte version of ‘Honey’ and I am quite pleased with how well this matte balm in ‘Elusive’ works in that respect.
On to the first of the lacquer balms, this is ‘Coy’ – As you could see in the previous post, the packaging makes it look a bit brown. It is still a little brown on the lips, but the pigmentation of the lips helps it become of a more mauve shade – I like it a good deal.
Lastly we have the lacquer balm in ‘Demure’ – It’s looking a little too pale in this photo as the shimmer reflects back a little. This shade is a very very sheer pale pink with a large amount of shimmer. It’s nice, though, very easy to wear.
