Revlon Laquer Balm in Demure




Shining shimmering package caught my eye.


Application is smooth although you can feel like tiny granules or I’m not sure if it’s glitter pieces, but I can feel the shimmer particles when I’m applying the balm. It also leaves a mint feel after a few seconds on your lips. VERY VERY moisturizing. Color is very sheer but buildable and I find that the color fades very quickly.

I don't find anything really special about the Revlon balm stains. I've tried the regular ones, the matte ones and these lacquer balms. I don’t think it’s worth PHP 525. Please do buy it online or sales or online sellers if you’re in the Philippines to get it cheaper.

First edition balm stains = best product out of the three. Wear time is the longest.
Matte balms = pigmented but leaves the lips looking dry and chappy.
Lacquer balms = looks very natural. Fades easily but still moisturizing.

Worth the hype? For me, not really. And if I were to choose between the three, I’d pick the first Revlon balm stains and I would just skip the matte and lacquer ones if you’re into wear time like me. Gorgeous packaging but I wouldn't repurchase another one of these.

    1. well thats kinda gross and you're never ever gonna get to buy one if the stores dont keep a close eye on them :P the first balm stains are the best out of the three :)

  2. I bought 3 (or 4) of the balm stains before and I initially thought I liked them. Pero, my hair sticks on my lips when I wear them a la lipgloss and the stain they leave is not even close to the color it's supposed to be so I feel out of love.

    I didn't like the matte balms that I tried because they have slip that makes even application patchy on (the anatomy) of my lips.

  3. I actually love the lacquer balms because they are moisturizing even though they dont last as long on the lips
