Hello hello peeps

The Revlon ColorBurst Balms (both Just Bitten Kissables and Mattes) just glides dreamily on my lips. For those who have dry lips however, you might want to scrub your lips and put on a moisturizing balm before applying the Matte Balms because they tend to highlight the flakes on dry lips.

The Maybelline Lip Polishes are awesooommeee. They to glide on the lips and has a unique texture like I have never come across before. Very smooth, almost slick but not quite. You'd get an opaque color payoff with 2 swipes for the lighter colors. For a darker color like Glam 6, 1 layer is enough for the color to show. (I only used 1 layer for all the lip swatches above).

As for the ZA Pure Shine Lips in Red Coral, the color is not so opaque. As it's name depicts, it's more on the shiny (or rather, glossy side). It also has a moisturizing formula. I think that it is the perfect sweet shade for Spring Season and a great product for those who are just starting to wear makeup.

As I mentioned before, I love all of them but my ultimate favorites would be Sultry (it made into my Beauty Monthly Favorites for March 2014), Glam 6 and Sweetheart Valentine.
