Hey guys. It's another very hot Monday. The summer is very grueling, and I am sweating bucket as soon as I step out of the shower. These days, drinking a gallon of water and three baths in a day is minimum. With the hot and humid weather, I have sworn off any heavy-feeling makeup. I stopped wearing foundations. I also have been ignoring my matte lipsticks these days as I find them too cake-y and melt-y on my lips.

I find myself reaching for more lightweight makeup: tinted moisturizers, cream blushes, lip stains and glosses. This is where Revlon's Colorburst Balm Stains come in. Last weekend, they had a 50% off promotion so I grabbed one. I chose Honey, a neutral color I could use everyday, especially this summer season. *Note: For Iloilo City, the sale is still ongoing every Friday, Saturday and Sunday of May.

Honey is a light/medium mauve pink, with warm undertones. I don't know why it's called "Honey" though as it looks nothing close to the golden, brown color that traditional honey is supposed to be. Otherwise, this color is a shade (or two) darker than my natural lip so it is a very pretty my-lips-but-better color for me.

As with what you can expect from a stain, the pigmentation is sheer. You would still see a bit of your natural lip color come through if you apply this on your lips. Particularly, for me who have pigmented lips and this color being lighter, the balm stain gave just enough coverage to even out my lips and add a hint of color to it. If you choose a darker shade from this line, you can certainly expect a more opaque coverage (See: Revlon Balm Stain in Crush).

Honey felt and looked natural on my lips. It almost felt like nothing that I sometimes forget that I have any lipstick on. This lightweight formula is definitely suitable for the warmer season like we have here in the Philippines.

Revlon's Balm Stain formula aren't really drying. I can't say that these stains are very moisturizing as claimed but they did have some moisturizing quality so my lips don't look dry and chalky.

The lighter pink color of Honey wore off evenly and avoided the dreaded the lip liner effect. The main color lasts for up to 2-3 hours, but the stain it leaves behind practically lasted thrice that. I don't mind reappling this though as it feels very smooth and creamy on my lips.

Overall: Revlon ColorBurst Balm Stain in Honey offers another great option for those looking for a wearable, everyday nude lip shade with a lightweight formula. The stain has a sheer and semi-opaque pigmentation that can be buildable up to a point. The lasting power of this balm stain is commendable, as the color it leaves behind lasts for more than 8 hours.
