New Revlon Colorburst matte & lacquer balms

Now, i'm sure you've already heard a ton about revlon's new release, but i thought hey, why not put in my two cents. Revlon has recently extended their chubby stick balm range to include 10 new matte balms, and 10 new lacquer balms. After a long swatch session at my local boots, i came out with the shades tease, standout and sultry (pictured in that order). Here are my thoughts...

The new Revlon colorburst matte & lacquer balms are very different from their balm stains, in that these are much more pigmented, and non-staining. The matte balms are the most pigmented out of the types, with a buttery soft formula and subtle sheen, which stops them from being drying or overly flat. The lacquer balms are sheerer but still very pigmented, and leave your lips with a gorgeous glossy finish without any stickiness. They have the usual minty scent which i really do not like, but i guess it's good for freshening up! My favourite shade has to be sultry, as its a great everyday shade for me for when i don't fancy a nude. Saying that, i can see myself getting a lot of use out of tease come spring-time. Then of course everyone needs a red lippy - how could i not pick it up? 

The pencil style means that they are ridiculously easy to use on the go, and they apply like a dream. One swipe over the lips and you have opaque colour which will last a good few hours without fading. The matte balms last a lot longer on the lips than the lacquer's, but that's usual for these types of formulas. All in all i'd definitely recommend checking these out, there's a shade for everyone in the range and i'm currently having to stop myself from buying more...
