Simply Lippy Challenge Day 285 | Revlon Colourburst Lacquer Balm in Shade 105

The lippy I chose for today is a balm from Revlon, a brand I really haven’t worn much of throughout my challenge. For some reason, it’s not a brand that really comes to mind for me when I think of what to try out next so when I spotted it last week I decided to buy it and give it a go.


The shade I chose is from the Michelle Keegan collection for Revlon and is a lovely pink peach tone that has a shimmer finish to give an extra dimension to the lips when you apply.


The shade is very pale so it’s a barely there kind of shade, but one that would be a great choice for a relaxed or natural makeup day. In saying that, I did have to layer it up quite a bit to get a nice amount of colour so do keep that in mind if you decide to try it out.


I wasn’t sure how moisturising it would be with the shimmer particles, but the mixture of Shea, Mango and Coconut butter in the ingredients means that your lips are kept incredibly soft and moisturised while you wear this, as well as staying hydrated.


As it has a gloss finish, the staying power isn’t great and you do have to reapply this regularly throughout the day. Because the shade wasn’t full coverage to start with, I did find that a little annoying, but my lips felt so smooth by the end of the day which kind of made up for it.


I’m not sure whether I’d reach for this too often again after wearing it today, however, it would be a good option for when I’m having a particularly dry lip day.


Have any of you guys tried Revlon lippies? I’d love to hear your thoughts so as always, let me know by commenting below!
