Lots of talk and rave about the Revlon Colorburst lipbalms, so, I couldn't resist the temptation to order a few. Since I couldn't find them on an online store, I decided to get them on eBay. I usually purchase drugstore items on eBay, I was never dissapointed.
The shades I chose are:
001 Pink Truffle
015 Tutti Frutti
070 Cherry Tart
Here they are swatched on my hand, it the same order
On my lips, Pink Truffle is a medium berry pink, Tutti Frutti is a very wearable, discreet orange (if you're afraid of orange but want to try it, this is an option) and Cherry Tart is a pink red.
Do I like them? Yes, very much. The reasons are:
-they do feel very moisturizing, rich and luscious, it's quite difficult to describe the sensation.
-the shades that I chose are really pigmented, but, being a lip balm, they are not harsh or too intense, in the way a lipstick can be. I would call them a soft focus kind of pigment, meaning that it is apparent but not screaming in your face. Be aware though that not all of the shades are pigmented, I looked at a lot of swatches before deciding to buy these three.
-I like their packaging a lot, because I can see at a glance the color I'm looking for, since the caps are color matched to each shade. Do you hear Mac?
Would I buy them again? Yes, there are 1-2 more shades that I'm interested in (Candy Apple for sure since I' m becoming a red lip maniac, LOL!!!)
Do I find them indispensable? No, I think a clear lip balm and a lipstick will give you similar results.
The only thing that hinders me from getting more is that I don't know how they will react to the hot Greek summer. I'd hate to buy a bunch of them only to discover that they melt in my makeup purse!
That was it for now, please once again excuse the crappy photos, I hope that at some point I'll get a thingy to connect my camera to the iPad.
Hope you're all well and thriving!
