ColorBurst Balms: Matte, Lacquer, and Stain

The original line of Balm stains from Revlon has been around for a while. I remember trying out their just bitten line when they first came out and really hating it. The color payoff was terrible and they were not moisturizing in the least. Which In a balm I would think moisture would be a key factor. Years later (present day) Revlon released these ColorBurst Matte Balms and Lacquer Balms that have been receiving so much hype all over the beauty blogosphere.

On my most recent trip to Ulta I caved and decided to give these new pretties a go (I even picked one up in the original balm stain). I picked up the Balm Stain in Crush, the Matte Balm in Unapologetic, and the Lacquer Balm in coquette.


Something that I noticed with all of these was the amazingly rich texture and high pigmentation. They also all have a hint of mint in them that adds a nice refreshing feel to the lips. These are a far cry from the original balms released years ago (in the best way possible of course).

Balm Stain: I decided to go for a deeper berry color when choosing the shade Crush. I really like this type of crayon style lip color it makes for super easy application (this goes for all 3 in the ColorBurst line)! The style definitely has longer staying power since these actually stain the skin when the balm wears away you are still left with tinted lips. I like the idea of this as it makes for touch ups less frequently.

Lacquer Balms: These are the super high shine which I really love for a fun night out. The only thing that isn’t my favorite about the Lacquer line is the glitter in them. I instantly fell in love with the color Coquette. A beautiful bright Barbie pink is perfect to compliment tanned skin in the summer.

Matte Balms: The matte balms have received most of the fanfare among beauty gurus. Matte lips have been a popular trend for a while now and it is quite hard to find a formula that isn’t drying on the lips (nothing is worse than cracked lips with matte lipstick on top). I have to say these are my favorite out of the bunch. They are so moisturizing and glide so effortlessly over the lips leaving them with the perfect velvety matte finish. I picked this one up in the color unapologetic and it such a fun bold color I can’t wait to wear this all the time.
