Revlon ColorBurst Matte & Lacquer Balms

Before going out and buying one of every colour (as I have done in the past), I thought I would try just one of each balm to see if I like the product. I've heard a lot about the new range, and I am generally a fan of all Lip Crayons.
For the Lacquer Balm, I chose the shade Coquette, a super girly & pretty pink that is quite sheer and can be built up for a more striking look. I absolutely LOVE this Lacquer Balm, it applies so smoothly and really nourishes the lips.

For the Matte Balm I chose the shade Unapologetic, which I thought looked like a perfect Spring coral shade. It's actually quite a vibrant Barbie Pink, which doesn't show up on camera (true colour is better shown a few photos down), and is a shade I wouldn't normally have the confidence to wear. I found the Matte Balm to be extremely drying and actually emphasised my dry lips - (my fault, I should have exfoliated and moisturised properly before application). I would like to give this product another go when my lips are in better condition and not so dry from Winter.

I must say that I much prefer the Lacquer Balms and I think I will pop back to Boots and take full advantage of their current '3 for 2' offer at the moment. I think these products will be perfect during Spring and Summer, and I can't wait to try all the shades.

Have you tried the new Revlon ColorBurst Balms? ... If so, what is your favourite shade?
