Last Sunday, I found myself at the Mall of Asia after the make up trial of one of my May brides. I didn’t know that there was a 5-day sale going on so imagine my delight when I saw the giant banner. I love sales because I end up walking away with pretty great deals although to be quite honest, I don’t really enjoy the whole process. Especially if you go to the department store, it’s a riot all the time. My sister and I went to the shoe department because she wanted to get a pair of Grendha’s and the place was so disorganised. The displays were a mess and it looked like one big ukay LOL.
Anyway, as we were walking out of the mall, I saw the Revlon counter and found out that their Lacquer Balms were on sale at 50% off. There were only 4 shades left, 2 of which my sister already had (a red and a deep pink), so I ended up walking away with just two. I originally wanted the plum, the orange and the nude brown but only the orange (Tease) was available out of the three. And because it was a 50% off sale, I decided to get Coy (a deep brown) as well.
I love the shade Tease. It’s a beautiful and vibrant orange that is perfect for the summer. I love using MAC’s Morange in the summer time and this is a great alternative to that. Another great thing about this is that it’s more moisturising than Morange since it is a lipbalm/lipstick hybrid.
Coy was a last-minute purchase. I was about to walk away from the Revlon counter with just Tease when I decided to grab Coy as well. It’s not a shade I normally wear now (I used to wear a very deep brown back in my late Grade School years and early High School. So 90’s LOL.) but I figured it would be a great way to experiment and see if this shade works for me.
Definitely watch out for sales from Revlon. I think they put these Lacquer Balms on sale quite often – check their Facebook or Instagram for more deets. I find that these are quite expensive (for department store products) when they are full priced (Php575.00) so if you can, try to wait for a sale so you can get more value for your money. 😉
