I actually wanted a Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in orange but it came up too peach on me.  I was so impressed by the texture and pigmentation that I refused to leave the shop without finding a Matte Balm that I could wear, which was not pink!

 

I really need purple lip colours so I chose Shameless.

 

I really love this purple. It’s almost the same shade as a pair of glasses that I have.  I would call a true purple – equal proportions of red and blue so that you wouldn’t know it was made from those two colours.

 

This is the first time I have used a lip crayon and I’m hooked.  This crayon glides on and effortlessly deposits a  highly pigmented colour in one swipe. The crayon shape makes it easy to follow the contours of the lips so even though this is a dark shade, there is no need for lip liner. It’s a doddle to apply!

 

Once on the lips it doesn’t feel like a matte colour.  There is absolutely no hint of drying at all.  In fact, I found it soothing and comfortable – that would be the balm! I didn’t used to be a matte lip person because of the drying aspect but now I’m really happy that I can wear matte lips which  as they feel moisturised!

 

It lasts for a good amount of time on the lips – I managed couple of hours without needing to touch up but I put some on anyway!

 

There is one slightly bizarre attribute which might put some people off- it has a mint scent! Normally I don’t like scented products on my face but I managed  to get used to this quite quickly.

 

So, yes there is a burst of colour, yes this is matte and yes it feels like a balm. I’ve already picked out my next two Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms – Unapologetic which is hot pink and Elusive which is a soft, medium pink!
