IMG_0160 2 I can no longer hide the fact that I’m a lipstick addict, although you can’t beat that $12 sale price at Farmers! Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of talk about the Revlon Matte Lip Balms that were launched early 2014, and it is no secret that NZ gets these products later in the year, but I couldn’t resist not having one (or six) to try out after seeing them. I have had one of the older Revlon Stay Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains for a while and liked it well enough, but never really got another.  I thought I would share with you one of the little splurges I had thanks to Farmers.

These really pack a punch, they have a huge colour payoff and last pretty much all day,  they have that minty plumping feeling about them and are so easy to apply as they are smooth and soft (you’ve got to be careful putting the lids on these)

Matte Balm in 245, Audacious- a matte bright orange, very pigmented from the first swipe.

Lacquer Balm in 130, Tease- golden tinted brown, can be used as a wash of colour or built up.

Matte Balm in 250, Standout- highly pigmented berry red, pink undertones.

Lacquer Balm in  125, Flirtatious- berry shimmer, can be built up very fast.

Matte Balm in 225, Sultry- Kylie Jenner-esque deep pink with brown undertones.

Matte Balm in 205, Elusive- Bright baby pink, loads of colour packed in one swipe.

In the photo I have Sultry on- although I’ve definitely got to find the my lips but better shade in this range!

    • It is really pretty- perfect for UK weather at the moment, it’s coming into summer here and it’s getting to hard to rock a dark lip during the day. And to be honest, I still had these swatch pigments in my arm two days later (I shower twice a day) it was incredible!

  • The shades you chose are gorgeous! The formula sounds great too, I wish Revlon is available in Spain! XD
