Although I used to sport a red lip daily in the past, I’ve steered away from the bold lip color and have opted for pink lipsticks and glosses instead. I’ve gotten good use out of my tinted balms, cremesheen lipsticks, and lightweight lip glosses to tie in the whole ‘no makeup makeup’ look I’ve gone for recently. As if on a whim, I picked up the Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in the shade Provocateur, which is an amazing red shade. I tend to go for the deep, matte reds but I was quickly drawn to the sheeny finish of the lacquer balm. The hint of shine in the tomato red shade adds a freshness to a rather boring red lip. I’ve really been enjoying the formulation of the balm as it’s blendable but it doesn’t slip and slide around the lips. While eating and drinking, I get a good 3-4 hours of wear time out of the lacquer balm and I know that the lippy will be perfect for the summer time!
