Ugh, have you seen that new ad with Emma Stone running around with a bunch of balloons and looking chic and absolutely gorgeous wearing Revlon Lacquer Balm? Lemme remind you…
Well of course I thought if I were to get some Revlon lippy I would magically transform into Emma Stone and look this fabulous! That’s how it works right?!
I loved the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm so much that I couldn’t wait to try the Lacquer Balm. These contain shea, mango and coconut butters so you know that all that goodness will leave your lips feeling as soft as a baby’s bottom! Currently they’re on sale for $10 from Priceline, so hop to it! Whimsical is super glossy and easy to apply and like the Matte Balm it has a lovely soft minty smell to it that isn’t too overpowering. It is also retractable, so you don’t need a sharpener! PERFECTION. My favourite thing about it is the tiny flecks of glitter (you can see it better on the swatches above) which adds another dimension of shimmer. I was a little disappointed in the colour (don’t get me wrong, I love it) as I was expecting it to be more on the purple side, like Emma’s, than pink. As it’s a balm I found I had to reapply more often than a regular lipstick.
One of the lovely girls at work bought Wild Orchid on one of those online deals for something ridiculous like $4 but when it arrived it wasn’t the shade she was after so she gave it to me seeing as I am a lipstick ‘ho! Isn’t she gorgeous?! I absolutely love this colour although it’s totally similar to Whimsical, oh well, you can never have too many lipsticks right? RIGHT?! Like Whimsical, this is very creamy and easy to apply. I can get a good four hours wear out of it before having to reapply.
Happy Monday dollfaces! Are you a big fan of Revlon lipsticks? Do you end up buying products after seeing beautiful people wearing them?
