This is my first review on IMBB and it’s really a dream come true for me . Since many days I was planning to buy a lip product which would give the effect of lipstick and lip gloss at the same time. My lips were looking dry with the normal lipsticks and applying lip gloss over it again and again to make them look vivid was an added job for me. Finally I came across this wonderful product and I loved it so much that I wanted to write a review on it then and there. But then I decided to wait so that I could find other interesting features of this balm (as they say). After using it for a while, here I am all ready with my first review about the Revlon colorburst lacquer balm-whimsical fantaisiste.
WHAT THE PRODUCT CLAIMS:
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. In10 collectible, crave –able colors.
EXPERT TIPS LIPS -:
For a polished and perfect lip look, apply foundation on and around the lips before lip color. Foundation helps to prep the lip area for a more flawless application and helps lip color last longer.
Price: Rs. 800/-
My Experience with Revlon colorburst lacquer balm-whimsical fantaisiste:
It is an amazing lip product and the best one I have ever tried. I even love my pro long wear lipstick from MAC but then I love it more because of its beautiful color and moisturizing effect. The feel of the balm is lovely, so easy to apply and slides onto my lips leaving them soft and moist also gives a good depth of color without making them feel heavy. The shade is very shimmery and sparkly. They come in about 10 different colors and all are lovely in their own way though not all are sparkly.
When I first applied this color on back of my hand it looked like any other normal pink glossy lipstick so got confused about buying it but then it played the trick when I applied it on my lips, it looked brighter and more glittery .I personally feel lipsticks or lip glosses cannot be judged without applying it on your lips.
You might feel a light tingling and cooling effect due to the presence of mint component which makes it more perfect for summers. You need to apply 2-3 coats of whimsical to bring out that perfect magenta color with silver shimmers.
It covers any pigmentation and here is the best part you don’t need a lip pencil to bring the perfect shape of your lips, it even does that work and makes your lip look fuller. I have a wheat-ish complexion and when I apply this awesome balm on lips, my skin tone actually looks lighter .I feel it will suit all skin tones. The color looks different depending on various lighting conditions.
I also love the attractive crayon packaging of this range which is very convenient to use. Staying power on lips is about 2 hrs which is obviously less but then it manages to leave a little stain and glitters on the lip which is really nice.

Cons of Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm – Whimsical Fantaisiste
