REVIEW | Revlon Matte & Lacquer Lip Balms + GIVEAWAY!

I tried my hardest to steer my eyes away from these new releases from Revlon but I succumbed to the 3 for 2 offer in Boots and got my mits on 1 of the matte balms, 1 lacquer..and 1 for you guys, I'm giving the matte red lip balm in Striking away!


I first saw these in my local Boots at home, which is the size of a postage stamp, so there was only 4 shades to choose from, however everyone knows I'm a sucker for a pinky nude so when I saw 'Elusive' and 'Demur', I just had to have them!

Elusive is the perfect 'your lips but better' shade - a matte pinky nude with an extra kick to it and is really easy to wear for every day use.The matte balms are very creamy and can be applied like an absolute dream leaving a velvety finish which stays put for hours!


Demure is a glossy nude, with teeny particles of subtle glitter, which if anything, just make the shade look even shinier, and is has the same texture and consistency as a lip balm, with it almost being as hydrating! I absolutely love this shade, it's such a beautiful nude, and I know this will be getting  a lot of use!


Like the Revlon lip crayons released last year, they have a minty scent and taste, with the balms being able to be twisted upwards to get more of the product - yay, no messy sharpeners needed! At £7.99, I think they're such a great price as the quality of these lip products can compete against many high end brands!


As soon as I get back upto Newcastle, I am heading straight to the biggest Boots store, and picking up the matte balms in Mischievous, Sultry and Complex!
