Lip-smack­ing colour

Revlon Color­Burst Crayon Col­lec­tion has come up with a set of mois­ture-rich balms in play­ful, soft, pretty as well as bold colours. Here’s a first-hand (or first-lip!) ex­pe­ri­ence of a cou­ple of shades …

W hen you see a range of lip colours with names as ex­cit­ing as the shades them­selves, you have just got to try them. So I did and Revlon, as al­ways, did not fail to im­press. The Revlon Color­Burst® Crayon Col­lec­tion comes in 16 colours in two on-trend fin­ishes: lac­quer shine and matte vel­vet. Both fin­ishes come with a Triple But­ter Com­plex of Shea, Mango and Co­conut But­ter. If a high-shine look is what you like, pick up the Revlon Color­Burst® Lac­quer Balm. It comes in eight al­lur­ing shades — In­genue, Coy, Co­quette, Vi­va­cious, Flir­ta­tious, Whim­si­cal, Tease, and En­tic­ing. Now, how’s that for nam­ing lip colours! I tried En­tic­ing — a pretty, bright red that can light up your face in a jiffy! The balm is very pig­mented and just one stroke gives a highly vis­i­ble wash of colour. Un­like lip­sticks that might need you to ap­ply a lip balm as well, these crayons are su­per moisturising. They have a minty fra­grance and you can also feel some tin­gling on your lips. The best part? For all the gloss and mois­ture, the colour doesn’t bleed and stays put for a cou­ple of hours. Re-ap­pli­ca­tion is a cake­walk with these easy-to-use re­tractable crayons. For those who pre­fer a vel­vety matte fin­ish, the Revlon Color­Burst® Matte Balms come in eight off­beat shades — Elu­sive, Sul­try, Un­apolo­getic, Shame­less, Mis­chievous, Au­da­cious, Strik­ing and Stand­out. To be hon­est, I am more ob­sessed about the names than the colour, and may have picked up shades just im­pressed by the name! Mis­chievous found its way into my bag and it did ex­actly what it claimed. It gives a soft matte fin­ish and feels re­ally light on your lips. This one is a pale peachy-orange shade and can wash out a face with the wrong com­plex­ion. Not easy to carry off, the shade is nev­er­the­less very off­beat and can be built up for a neon touch. Com­pared to the lac­quer balms, these seem less moisturising (for ob­vi­ous rea­sons) and you might just need a lip balm un­der­neath. So, if you are bored of the same old shades (and same old names), go ahead and pick one of these.
