A Round-Up: Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Standout, Lacquer Balms in Provocateur and Enticing, Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Crush

Whoa….that title is really long! I just couldn’t think of a better way to name everything being swatched in this post.  It’s four lip products, but two are from one line, one is from another line, and the last one is also from another line. I couldn’t just list the names, and it would have been inadequate to call it a Revlon Round-Up.

Wait, why I am wasting time explaining my protracted blog post title? We should be swatching!



First up are the Lacquer Balms:



L-R: Striking, Provocateur


Top: Provocateur
Bottom: Striking

In shade:




In sunlight:




Provocateur is a bright candy red. It’s sort of neutral in the sense that darker skintones can pull it off. It doesn’t look garish on me at all. I quite like it.

Enticing: A brownish red. Predictably, I love this. It’s great on days when I want a more subdued red (if there is such a thing).

Both are fairly opaque and last for a few hours on my lips. The coverage is quite nice. The finish gives off a sheen  but is not as glossy as an actual lip gloss.

Matte Balm in Standout:



Standout is a neutral red with brown tones.

In shade:




In sunlight:



I love the matte balm formula. I own Shameless and I love it to pieces. Standout is just as awesome as Shameless.

Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Crush.

I’ve long been wanting Crush because I love vampy stains, I love berry colors and Clinique Black Honey never lasts long on me so I always keep an eye out for similarly colored lip balm/stain products.








It is pretty sheer. This is a few swipes on my arm.



It’s a lovely sheer berry color on me. It does need a touch up after a few hours, but it’s nice if I want a softer lip color on a neutral makeup today.

That’s all the swatches I have for you today! What do you think? Yay or nay on these?
