Revlon Lacquer Balm in Enticing

Okay, despite the mixed reviews of this product from fellow blogging friends…I caved and bought the new Revlon Lacquer Balm in Enticing ($7).What? It was red…and shiny…and reminded me of Christmas. Guilty as charged.

I just couldn’t resist the pretty display, and I chose Enticing, which I thought would look like the outside packaging.But in fact, it is much more subdued.

I like the way this smells/tastes. Kinda minty (think the Tarte lip crayons) and it feels nice going on the lips.

The red, however, is not very lacquer-ish or shiny. This is a plain ol’ lip balm crayon in a subdued red. I am very sad the shimmer didn’t translate well to the lip and I was hoping for a wow-finish (against my better sense, of course).

Oh Enticing, how you look so pretty and yet, very different from my expectations. 
But this isn’t necessarily a bad thing!I am thinking this would be a good base for a lip gloss of a similar color…or maybe I can try it as a cheek stain? It slips around a little bit on my lips (making the wear 2 hours or less), but I do like the moisturizing feel.I recommend Enticing if you do not have something similar in your stash! Anyone else love/hate these?

  3. Aww not awkward AT ALL Meesha, I consider you a blogging bestie too! I wanted Standout, but they didn't have it. I am feeling like the places around me are really low on stock! I will wait patiently for more of your BITE reviews! And no…the Elixers haven't shown up in my neck of the woods (frustration face). Thanks and I wish you luck on your as well!
