Let me begin by saying I love Revlon Colorburst Balms. They do feel nice and soothing on the lips, more like a balm, less like a lipstick. But the colors are strong and lovely. Flirtatious is great for evening, as the color is strong and shiny. The only negative is that it does need to be reapplied, as it is not a long-wearing lip color. But the pencil is perfect for throwing in a small purse and just putting it on anytime.
