Is everything that is old new again? I was pondering this as I was playing with my Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Flirtatious the other day. I feel like I spent a significant amount of money chasing down a lip finish that we now so casually call metallic. I would have killed for this metal look back then – but only in a nude-pink-brown. Flashy colors were not my jam back in the day.
But they kind of are now, and I’m having fun with the Colorburst Lacquer Balm. This is your crayon style lip balm/gloss but it’s infused with a bit more pigment than you’re used to seeing in these crayon balms, and lots more shine. And a metallic touch. Very faint, but noticeable. What you’re really going to notice, however, is the amazing shine.
Did I mention the shine? It’s not gooey like other glosses, and you don’t have to spend an hour trying to get it on with a crappy brush. I just use the crayon after outlining my lips in a nude pencil, and go back afterwards with a brush lightly dipped in makeup remover if absolutely necessary. But this is serious color, so you won’t be able to get away with a little smudge outside the lines. Unfortunately.
Grab your Colorburst Lacquer Balm anywhere for about $8.99. There are 10 colorful shades to choose from – everyone will find something in the line.
