I’m feeling particularly lethargic this weekend. I’m hoping some more Diwali food is going to cure that!
Meanwhile, here’s something from my lipstick stash, Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Tease. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate lip crayons. The fact that I feel like I’m applying markers to myself is enough to make me giddy.
Tease from the Lacquer Balm range is a burnt orange kind of shade with zero shimmer. The orange is a bit deeper which, I feel, makes it easier to wear. I have comparison swatches below but as you can tell, I don’t really have a dupe for it.
I have a few of these and the pigmentation does depend on the colour. I find Tease is more sheer than some of the others (much like Ingenue) but it looks better with 2-3 swipes. It also has a minty scent and a slight tingle which is annoying but you do get used to it.
It’s very light on the lips and the glossy finish stays on for 2-3 hours. It’s not very long lasting, stays on for 3-4 hours. It does transfer and will come off if you eat or drink though. This is definitely one to use if you want to quickly slap on something or if you don’t mind reapplying.
Not the most economical at Rs. 800 (2.7g) for a average sheer lip product but the colour itself is nice and you can find this on sale if you look hard. I really like the packaging, it’s very convenient and I like that it indicates the colour and the finish. It’s also retractable which is nice.
