Revlon’s Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Ingenue (145)

Sheer, very soft shade, and the color doesn't stick around for very long. It isn't as “nothing-there” as Demure (the pale sheer pink). It does give my lips a slight hint of color for just over an hour. But…it's just not all that great. There are other ultra-pale tans that actually do stain, and so last a bit longer. The shine on these - the “lacquer” finish - is one of the first things to go. I get maybe 20 minutes out of that if I don't move my lips at all. But the first time I eat, drink, or speak…there goes the finish.
