So I caved! I saw the hype on these Revlon colourburst matte balms and I just HAD to try them out for myself.
I must of walked into my local Superdrug store about 4 times, swatching colours and ohh-ing and ahh-ing over the range, and then I opted for a lacquer balm instead.
Then I went in this week and purchased two out of the colourburst range as they had a buy two get the third from the Revlon range for free. I was sold!
I chose two shades -
220 - Showy Flamboyante - a rich pink shade
205 - Elusive Insatiable - a richer than nude shade with a hint of peach
This innovative Chubby lip pencil takes your look from day to night with this velvety matte finish, infused with Balm like moisture.This on trend finish comes in 10 shades take your look from soft and pretty to bold and glamorous.
Velvety Matte finish
Triple complex of Shea, Mango and Coconut Butter
Retractable chubby crayon, no sharpener required
I chose these two shades because I thought that they weren't like anything else that I had in my lip collection, and they seemed very spring / summer like.
Here's 220 - Showy Flamboyante in the top and bottom pictures
And here's 205 - Elusive Insatiable
Both shades although matte aren't drying. Upon first application you can smell and feel a slight mint fresh sensation, and then they settle and just moisturise your lips in a really hard way to describe -
The colour stays matte but without drying or dehydrating your lips. Your lips feels balmy in texture but matte upon appearance!
I can really see what the appeal of these are. I have tried i(n my 33 years) many long lasting matte lip colours and I have always found them drying, cakeing and just not up to the job. But these Revlon Matte Balms just offer a unique formulation with ease of use and amazing colours! I am converted!!
You can pick up the Revlon ColourBurst Matte Balms for £5.99 instead of £7.99 'Here'
