Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm

Recently I did a post on a Clinique Chubby Stick, which was the first time I've ever bought one of these lip 'crayons'.  Needless to say I love it, and how easy it is to use.  Since then I've been scouting around and trying some different brands.  One of these has been the Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm.

Picking this up in the pharmacy I decided to step outside my comfort zone and go for a berry red!  How festive of me!
The red I went for is number 150, which is called Enticing.  And that it is.  Put it on and even I want to kiss me.  Wait.  What?? 
Ok so I might want to give myself a big old pash but I'm not too sure that my husband would want to.  Yes, my lips do look really pretty in this, and I love the colour.  I also like how it is easy to apply and it has just the right amount of shine without being glossy or anything like that.  I just know my husband would be a bit...well...scared of lips this red on me.  (He's not really used to makeup on me yet!)  But, you know...I think he might get over it!
The colour actually looks a little more berry red than this, but it does have a hint of pink through it, which I think makes it a more doable red for those of us who are a bit terrified of dark lips.
 
Now I just need a festive occasion or a big night out and I can wear this!  Christmas party anyone?!

  10. This is such a pretty shade. It'd be perfect for a Christmas party! I love the Revlon Colorburst formula, I have never picked one up in a bolder shade though.
