#30in30 Revlon Lacquer Balm Fliratious

IMG_0278

 I forget now where I bought this, I was in New York when they launched in the UK and I remember buying up the matte balms like a maniac incase there were any US exclusive shades I wouldn’t be able to get but the Lacquer Balms weren’t really of interest to me. I think I picked this one up for review while I was on my rampage but until recently hadn’t even opened it. I do like it, I’m a big fan of lip products in crayon form, they’re firmer and less likely to melt so great to keep in your bag/car but honestly this formula just doesn’t excite me. I’m not a huge gloss fan, it’s sticky and gets in my hair so I don’t usually choose lipsticks with such a glossy finish – there’s nothing wrong with them (or this) it’s just personal preference.

The colour is nice but I have an almost identical crayon in this colour from L’Oreal – see here – which I actually prefer the formula of, less glossy, more balm. It’s nice enough but nothing’s going to beat the matte balms for me, I know they’re love/hate and some people really cannot get along with them but they’re the best matte lip products I’ve ever tried and THOSE I would definitely recommend you try.. these are really nothing special.

Available online here for £7.99

    I much prefer the matte balms too but this is a gorgeous colour. I only have one of the lacquer balms already as gloss isn’t really my thing. The matte balms are so long lasting compared to the lacquers!
