Revlon Colorburst Lacquer and Matte Balms in 145 Ingenue and 250 Standout

RLMB1I picked these up way back in February, but I totally forgot to write about them! I have one lacquer balm, 145 Ingenue, and one matte balm, 250 Standout (both 575.00 Php as you can see on the stickers). I fell fast and hard for Ingenue and if I wore reds more often Standout would be a fave too. I have my eyes on a couple more shades from both the lacquer and matte lines, but I’m not in a rush to pick them up. RLMB4Swatched and worn. Ingenue is a peachy-brown with warm undertones, medium coverage, and a frost finish. I can’t believe I actually like a frost, but in this shade it is just so flattering on the lips because the shimmer is so fine that it looks almost like a gloss. I’ve even had people ask me what lipgloss I had on while wearing this. Feels like a lipstick though and it wears pretty well but will not last through a meal. Standout on the other hand is a beautiful classic red. It doesn’t lean too orange or pink, so I’d say it’s neutral toned. The funny thing about this “matte” balm is that there’s definitely a bit of a sheen to the finish. It does dry down to look more matte after a while, but it keeps the sheen for a couple of hours after application. I do wish it were truly matte, but if we’re not being strict about that, it is a fantastic red. It wears excellently even through meals and drinking, plus it’s very comfortable to wear.

What are your fave shades from these ranges? Any duds I should look out for before I pick up more shades? :)

    I love Standout! Even in a reconstituted phase (mine melted when left in a sunny place) it still is in a pretty good shape and makes a great statement! I would love to get other shades of it.

  2. Ingenue wouldn’t be something I’d pick up but the frost does look amazing. Aaaa I’m itching to buy it now! Been eyeing the matte balm in Shameless but was warned against it by Rae (Scatterbraintures). It’s really streaky, according to her.

    Ingenue looks so pretty on your lips! The color reminds me of the Happy Skin Crushing on You Lippie, but this looks smoother/glossier… ooohh.. I wonder how it’d look like on more pigmented lips like mine. :3
