My experience with Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm 135 Provocateur :

Shade – PROVACTEUR is stunning shade of medium to dark Bright Cherry Red with no shimmer or glitter just a high glass like shine to it. I find the shade is easy to wear and will work across all the skin tones effortlessly. This is by far my favourite shade from this range as it adds a brightness and lush wet look to my lips.

Texture – All the 4 lacquer balms I tried, have soft easy to glide texture which is light weight on lips even if you layer them. They don’t settle in fine lines nor do they bleed and that is the best part of these handy chubby balms. I feel my lips are not very moisturized once it comes off nor do they feel dry; a very neutral feeling for a product which is labelled as BALM.

Pigmentation – It has decent pigmentation and needs very few layering, my lip pigmentation is covered nicely in very few swipes. The lighter shades needs heavy layering but this was good enough in two to three swipes.

Staying power – Now this is major issue with all the lacquer balms , where darker shades tend to stay around 4 hrs some lighter once comes off in 2 – 3 hrs without any tint . This falls under medium to dark range hence manage to stay and look good for somewhere around 3 hrs.

What I like about Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm 135 Provocateur

  • I adore the bright cherry red shade which will look flattering on all skin tones.
  • The texture is superb, soft, creamy and easy to glide.
  • I love the handy twist up pencil.
  • The pigmentation is good and it layers opaque in very few swipes and make my lips lush and wet.
  • It doesn’t settle in fine lines nor does it bleed.

What I don’t like Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm 135 Provocateur

  • The staying power is too low.
  • The price is steep for the quality.

Ratings 3/5

As much as I love these the staying power is really low for the price you pay. The shade range is great and so is the texture, if you love glossy lips and don’t mind about staying power then this may interest you.
