Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm Ingenue - Swatch and Review

Has anyone had any luck finding these new Revlon Lacquer Balm and Matte Balm? I was only able to find them at Bed Bath and Beyond but by the time I made it there, most of them where already gone so I managed to only get this lacquer balm.


  • It's a retractable chubby lip pencil, pretty much the same size as the Revlon Balm Stains but the packaging has a metallic foil look to it. It's kinda cool actually.
  • 2.7 g or 0.095 oz


  • Ingenue is a medium beige nude, semi-sheer color with no shimmers. It's a nice nude color that most people won't have any trouble pulling off. 
  • The formula of this lacquer balm is light-weight, emolient, and has a bit more slip to it than the regular balm stain. I didn't find it hydrating but didn't find it drying either and it will highlight dry skin so you definitely want to exfoliate before use. 
  • It lasts about 2-3 hours without eating or drinking. 
  • It has the same minty scent as the balm stains. 

Final Thought

I neither loved or disliked the product. I think overall it's just an average lip crayon with a nice packaging. I heard great reviews about the Matte Balm so I'm still a bit sad that I didn't get at least one.

Rating: 7.5/10

Price: $6.99
Availability: Bed Bath and Beyond (not all BBB have a beauty/drugstore section)

Have you spotted these in other drugstore?


  1. That's really pretty--it's much more neutral than I would have guessed based on the packaging. I guess I expected it to be more metallic or something.

    1. Yeah it would have made sense if it turned out metallic.

  2. This actually looks quite nice, but I don't like the lacquer balm formula! Hope you find the matte ones soon!
