If you like lip products that provide great pigmentation, matte finish and comfortable wear then the new Colorburst Matte Balms are for you! Revlon has launched 10 gorgeous shades ranging from bright, neutral and deep.
The balms are packaged as fun, colorful pencils that twist up to reveal beautiful pigment with no need to sharpen. The tapered end is ideal for lining the lips and for precise, tidy application but rubbing your lips together does help spread the color for better consistency. I like how smooth the formula glides on for long-wear coverage with no feathering.
I have the balms in 3 shades: Striking- is a pretty orange red, Elusive-a subtle pink nude and Showy- a bright fuchsia.
I am usually a bit hesitant to purchase matte formulas because they tend to be more drying but these balms are creamy and light-weight. Shea, coconut and mango butters provide rich hydration to keep lips moisturized without stickiness, shine or glitter and I recommend wearing the brighter hues when lips are exfoliated to avoid accentuating chapped skin.
The balms provide medium to full coverage and the colors can be layered and built-up to your desired saturation. They also feel alleviating and cool with a slight tingling sensation due to the peppermint oil in the formula.
The Colorburst balms retail for $8.96-$9.99 Canadian and can be found at most drug stores. You can check out the rest of the line by clicking HERE.
