Revlon’s Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Demure (105)

Very sheer wash of color and a shine…neither of which stays around for very long, and definitely not through anything like eating, drinking, or even having a conversation.

(Have I mentioned my utter disappointment with the Lacquer Balms' total lack of longevity yet this year? Because it's really truly horrid. Especially when compared to the original Balm Stains.)

Photos that show how the product actually performs...! See how I create my swatches

A montage of three images: top left, close-up of the lip color in the tube; top right, the color applied over bare skin, to better show the shade; and below, the color applied to the lips.

This is a pretty enough color, but…it's almost invisible on me. I can only really tell that it's gone because the shine is completely missing, and so I deduce - yep, it's all worn off now.

There may be some people for whom this color works really well. I am definitely not one of those people.
