Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm

I need another lip shade like I need a hole in my head. But here I am, yet again, with some new Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm shades.

These were on the same display as the Matte Balms, which I reviewed already. These ones though are glossy and have a lighter, slightly more see-through finish.

So again I found myself having to choose just four shades. I think there were eight in all, but I can’t remember for sure. The barrel shades match the inside pretty much, so that helps with choosing!

Overall: I liked these but they weren’t what I was expecting. Somehow I thought they were going to be super pigmented glosses. They are on the softer side but still really pretty. I especially like Vivacious and Flirtatious, but I could see wearing Demure with a smoky eye.

Availability: Walgreens, drugstores.

Pricing: $9.49 (I got mine at buy one get one 50% off).

What do you think about these? Do you prefer the Matte Balms better?
