Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm Coquette Review (4) Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Coquette: Swatches & Review

Product Description:  High Shine Lacquer. Moisture Rich Balm A lacquer finish that’s beyond brilliant. Balm that’s beyond comforting. Our Triple Butter Complex of Shea, Coconut and Mango butters nourishes lips. In 8 collectible, craveable colors.

Revlon makes some fantastic lip products and  I absolutely adored their Lustrous Lipsticks range as well their Lip Butters and had super high expectations from their offerings called the Lacquer Balms . Recently I picked up the Lacquer Balm in Coquette expecting it to be winner but it didn’t quite live upto my expectations.  Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm is supposed to be  a high shine crayon lipsticks but on my lips it does deliver the ‘high shine’ claim. If by shine, Revlon means the tiny silver glitter particle then that’s not very impressive, what I was expecting was atleast semi-glossy finish.

Revlon Lacquer Balm’s packaging is cute with a metallic & shiny finish body reflecting the actual color but these tubes look really old & the label has been placed in a crappy way on the cap maybe because these are not manufactured here but are imported. This makes me question the authenticity of expiry dates mentioned on the label. Coming to the color, Coquette is a cool toned, candy pink color, which is a difficult color to pull off for Indian skintones. I am between NC 30-35 in MAC, it looks kind of ok on my skintone. I think if you are really fair then this color would be a great pick. Coquette has tiny silver shimmer particles in it which actually adds to the color but it goes all over while removing the product.

Coquette has a very comfortable balm like texture; it glides smoothly & even nourishes the lips. Only hitch is the peppermint like smell & tingling sensation you experience immediately after application. It takes a good 15 minutes for the sensation to subside. It might not bother many but I hate that feel on my lips. Coquette has a sheer finish; it is not highly pigmented, so it doesn’t cover any blemishes on the lips no matter how many times you swipe it.

Pros:

  1. Balm like texture, nourishes the lips
  2. Coquette would be most suitable to fair skin toned girls
  3. Easy to use twist up packaging
  4. Easy to identify if you own multiple colors from this range

Cons:

  1. It has a weird peppermint smell & sensation to it
  2. Its expensive
  3. Color payoff is average
  4. Does not cover any kind of lip pigmentation
  5. Does not give high shine glossy finish

Rating: B-

Price: Rs. 800

Recommendation: Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Coquette is a light candy pink color which I think is a difficult color to pull off for Indian skintones unless you are really fair. It has smooth texture but it lacks in shine (glossy finish) department. It has a weird peppermint smell & sensation to it which I think won’t be suitable to many. Revlon Lacquer Balms are not really a winner overall in my opinion.
