I just found a new go-to lipstick! And I wasn't even planning on getting a new lippie at all!
Revlon Colorburst Balm Stain in Crush Beguin
Got this at 50% off. The original price was PhP 575.00.
I was at the department store one day and saw that Revlon was on sale. I saw that the prices were hugely discounted and I just thought, "why not take advantage of this?" It has been a while since I have used a product from the brand anyway.
I've tried their balm stains before and I think they are pretty good. Since they were at 50% off, I decided to get one, and the shade that was most interesting to me was Crush Beguin.
I'm into darker shades lately, but this one is not too dark. It's pretty wearable actually. I just think that I want a break from the bright reds and pinks I usually wear, as well as nudes. I'm all for berry shades, plums, and deep fuchsias now.
This one is a violet red shade.
A swatch on my hand
On my lips, it looks so good because it compliments the warm shade of my skin really well. It has this slight glossy finish that make my lips look so healthy and moisturized. I failed to take a pic of the stain it leaves on but it is pretty close to the color when I just apply it. Just imagine it without the glossy effect. ;P
I'm currently using this the most often among my lippie collection. It gives a bold color to my lips and it is soooo long-lasting because it's a stain, but still keeps my lips moisturized I usually complain that some stains dry my lips, but not this one!
I would love to try out more shades from this line, and maybe the matte balms if they're good too. Any recommendations? :)
