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?

  1. I think that the matte shades from this collection are much more unique than the lacquers.

    1. I totally agree with you Miranda...the set up for the mattes was completely empty so I have to go seek them out at other stores!

  3. Hey Margo! Thank you for always checking out my posts, commenting, and showing your support. I consider you a blogger bestie fyi so if you get super famous in the future do NOT forget about yours truly. Haha! Awkward! I'm surprised you picked up Enticing instead of Standout. Yes, def try BITE... I'll be posting a review on two more BITE lippies so wait up for that... And did you try any of the Maybelline Elixirs yet??? Btw best of luck w/ any upcoming final papers or exams you may have!!!

    1. 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!
