Hello everyone! So i finally got my hands on the Revlon matte and lacquer balm, i feel like I’m the last person to talk about these, but better late than never, right?!

I picked up two matte and one lacquer balm, now i don’t know for sure but if you’ve been reading my posts for a while then I’m sure you’ll know that i have an undying fascination with purple lipstick, and you’ll also notice a pattern here that i always get the same type of pink, the pattern holds true in this case as well, now that I’ve put it out there lets begin!

The matte balms have a different packaging, that is of course they have a matte finish, whilst the lacquer balm is very shinny and lacquery.

I picked up Shameless which is a true purple color, it has a matte finish which is EXTREMELY comfortable on the lips, it smells like toothpaste just like the revlon balm stains, and has the most pigmented color payoff, its insane, the finish is as close to that of a lipstick except for the fact that its a lot more comfortable than a lipstick.

Elusive is another matte shade, its a nudey pink color and again the color payoff is insane, its a beautiful color for everyday where unlike shameless which you can’t wear everyday, it would be a bit odd.

Elusive i’ve noticed is a not as long lasting as shameless, it does disappear after a while but leaves behind a nice stain on the lips.

Coquette has a glossy finish being a lacquer balm, it is very similar to elusive, and looks exactly the same on camera, but it is more pink than elusive. The thing i don’t like about coquette is that its glittery, after disappearing it leaves behind glitter on my lips, which i’m not a fan of. Glitter on my eyes is the only place where i appreciate it, other than that no thank you please. However i do like how the color looks on, its brilliant for everyday wear and i wear it a lot! its extremely comfortable on the lips!
