Revlon Matte and Lacquer Balms + Swatches!

8 Feb

Hello lovelies!

A little post on the new Revlon Balms. They’ve just recently launched in the UK, and there’s a huge selection of lovely shades. I picked up a couple of matte ones, but only one of the lacquers caught my eye. A lot of the lacquer balms had tons of glitter in them, and that just isn’t something that I look for.

ImageI picked up Standout (250, matte burgundy), Elusive (205, matte pink) and Vivacious (120, lacquer pink).


Standout is a warm toned deep red, it has a minty scent that is similar to the original Revlon Balm Stains, but definitely toned down.
ImageElusive is a dusky matte pink that is relatively natural on the lips. It’s smooth to apply, just like the darker colour. It also has a minty scent, but it seems a little more opaque than the darker colour. The matte formula balms are relatively long wearing, with the darker colour wearing off nicely after about 6 hours.


Vivacious is a hot pink that is super shiny. The shine definitely dims the longer you wear it, with the formula turning to more of a creamy finish. It’s pretty long wearing, I can get up to four hours without having to touch up, which is awesome for a product with shine.

So, I’ve resigned myself to buying about thirty more of these until my collection is complete. I give them a solid 4/5, the only thing that could improve them would be if the lacquer range had less glitter in them. And if they smelled like marshmallows or fruit instead of mint. But that’s personal preference.

Are you guys gonna go out and grab these while they’re hot? Or have you already taken the plunge and picked up a couple? Let me know what you guys think in the comments! 🙂

Have a lovely day or evening, wherever you are!
