Revlon Colourburst Matte Balm Review.
If you follow me over on You Tube you'll have noticed that these are pretty much the only thing on my lips for the past few videos. I'm already a huge fan of the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains so when I heard Revlon were coming out with a matte version I was more than a little excited.
I really didn't need any more red lipsticks, but I have a problem. If its new and it comes in red I'll almost always buy it!
I picked up three shades from the range, all brights as that is what I'm naturally drawn to- they do have a selection of brown and pink toned nudes as well but I don't find those shades flattering on me!
From left to right on the swatches below we have;
Audacious: I would describe this as a true orange shade. Its not got any pink or red in it, its just a straight up super-bright orange. I haven't been brave enough to wear this yet as I think on my pale skin it could wash me out. When the sun comes out and I have a bit of a tan or am wearing bronzer I think this will look gorgeous.
Standout: The middle shade below is the colour that, so far, I've worn the most! Its a beautiful deep cherry red that is very flattering against my pale skin tone.
Striking: Lastly, we have what I've described over on my channel as a strawberry red. Its one of those shades that I think would suit any skin tone, light or dark!
Overall, these really lived up to my expectations! They're long lasting but also feel incredibly creamy and moisturising in the lips.
