Revlon Colorburst Lacquer balm in Ingénue Review and swatches

Revlon Colorburst Lacquer balm In Ingénue Review 
Hi girls!
Yesterday, I reviewed Revlon's Matte balm in striking which was a hot red color and today the color I am going to review is totally the opposite of that vibrant red, not only the color but the texture and other parameters are different except for the minty fragrance. I am talking about Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Ingenue.

Price: Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balms are priced at 800 rupees each in India and have been launched in 8 different shades such as Vivacious, Enticing, Ingénue, Whimsical, Flirtatious, Coy, Coquette and Tease

Just like the Matte balms, Lacquer balms too have this chubby stick/lip crayon packaging. If you have noticed, Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balms have shiny glossy body whereas the matte balms had matte finished outer case that clearly says a lot about their respective texture. Barring the mint like smell and some cooling sensation both the lip products are very different.

The lacquer balm has a very balmy, glossy texture that feels very light more or less like a lip balm. As soon as you apply mild coolness engulfs your lips which I personally like. It feels as if you’ve had a Polo just now.

It glides well on the lips and is very smooth to apply with no patchiness. Just the dewy lips.
The shade Ingénue is a sheer warm brown with shimmer particles scattered loosely. The shimmer adds more dimension to its already glossy finish. The formula is very moisturizing. I remember, the first time I applied it, I haven’t even used a balm beforehand to deal with my dry lips but after application this has taken care of that dryness.  
If compared with Coy which is more like a dark cool toned brown, ingénue would be perfect N*de shade for girls who like to sport subtle dewy color with shine but nothing too obvious on the lips.

Out of the lot, Coy and Ingénue are from the brown family while other 6 shades belong to the category of Pink, Orange and Red broadly.
It stays on the lips for around 4 plus hours and then the sheen starts to fade off and only the color is left which starts of fade off too gradually. Unlike the matte balms they aren’t that patchy or would bleed. It is not sticky but still would stay in the place.

I am not a fan of browns as they don’t suit me. Well this is what I think; therefore, I mix it with some other bright color since I really like the texture and finish because of which I would really like to try some other shade like tease which is more my kind of color! This color will look a tad different depending on your actual lip color.

Take:  Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balms are light weight, non sticky, non bleeding with glossy balm smooth texture finish and some shimmers included. Pigmentation is sheer though buildable, comes in 8 shades out of which Ingénue is a sheer brown color that is perfect for  nud* lip lovers. They won’t leave a stain and keeps lips moisturized. If price and shimmers are not a concern then do give me a try!
