Revlon Colorburst Holiday Set - Elusive, Sultry, Whimsical, Demure, and Provocateur

Today I have Revlon's Colorburst holiday set to share with you. Mr. Juice was very kind to me this Christmas! This holiday set contains four pinks and a red. The four pinks are all very different from each other, however. 
These shades are all very easy to wear shades and would be suitable for any occasion. The formula on these things is AMAZING. I haven't had anything like them before. They're smooth like lip balm but have the colour pay-off of a lipstick. They also feel a bit minty on the lips, and have a pleasant smell.

Above is Revlon's Colorburst matte balm in Elusive, a pretty pink lipstick - close to being my absolute favourite of the bunch!

Above is Relvon's Colorburst matte balm in Sultry - this reminds me of my go to MAC lippy, Mehr. This one is deeper and darker than Elusive.

Above is my favourite of the set, Demure. Revlon' Colorburst lacquer balm Demure is a lovely light sheer glittery shade, that makes full use of my naturally light pink lips. I adore it. I can see that this will be the first one to go!

Revlon' Colorburst lacquer balm Whimsical is a gorgeous fuchsia lippy, it's just sheer enough to suit any skintone without being too overpowering.

Provocateur was the surprise! As the other shades are all somewhat sheer or matte, this one really makes the best of both worlds. A delightful bright red that just glides on!

Stay tuned for more lip swatches!

Revlon Gel Envy - All Or Nothing

 
All or Nothing - another surprise favourite! This one definitely didn't take my fancy at first glance, but once I had tried it on, it looked like that beautiful fresh linen white. Beautiful, a nice fresh shade for Summer.

All or Nothing is a pink toned white. Depending on your skintone, it may look more white or more pink.

Another fab formula from the Gel Envy line. This is two coats worn here. Three gives you full coverage, no visible nail line.

See you again soon!

Revlon Gel Envy - Checkmate

Checkmate, my very first Gel Envy. Where it all began! I looked into the Gel Envy line because I was tired of my little nails never getting to grow. Between Checkmate and High Roller (dark purple) - I wore these two shades weeks on end. A month later here I am, very happy with my nail length.

Two smooth as butter coats. Another beautiful formula in the Gel Envy line. Checkmate is one of my favourite nudes of all time.

The perfect shade for when you're trying to grow your little nails out!

See you again shortly with more Gel Envy!

Revlon Gel Envy - Showtime

Showtime! Wow! Look at this beauty glow! Definitely the sparkliest in the Gel Envy line.

This is just one coat of Showtime over High Roller. Showtime can take a few coats to build up colour on it's own.

Purple, pink, navy, red, gold... *drool*

Even glorious in the shade. 

See you shortly!

Revlon Gel Envy - High Roller

High Roller was one of my first Gel Envys, and I am so glad because I have worn this shade for weeks on end. I adore it!

Super smooth formula, again with hidden blue shimmer which shines in direct sunlight.

The bottle shows quite a strong blue flash - which I was a bit iffy about, but swatches online reassured me that it did look like a creme finish.

This colour looks quite black in most lighting situations, but compared to black, High Roller is that little bit softer.
