Currently Loving: Revlon Colourburst Matte Balm

27 March 2014

If you were to see my current stash of lip crayons you would be shocked at how many I have/need for just one pair of lips but since the new Revlon Colourburst Matte Balms launched there has literally been no other product on my lips. 

I wouldn't say I am usually a huge fan of matte lips, however these Matte Balms have definitely changed my views. They are so pigmented and glide on the lip so nicely without dragging the lip or anything like some matte formula's can often do. Although they are matte they still are so moisturising and creamy and never look dry or cling to any dry patches. The lasting time isn't as long as some other matte lip products that I've tried but they do last well and can always be touched up easily throughout the day.

I have four shades from the collection and they are Audacious; a bright coral shade perfect for summer, Striking Spectaculaire; a basic red shade that works well even with my pale skin tone, Elusive; a cool pink that I find so easy to wear for an everyday look and Showy Flamboyante; a perfect bubblegum pink. 

My favourite shade of the moment has to be Elusive as it's just the perfect everyday shade to perk up a basic makeup look. It is always in my makeup bag and is so handy for touch ups on the go. As I am so impressed with everything about the Revlon Colourburst Matte Balms I may have a do another cheeky purchase of the nude shade that caught my eye. 

Have you tried the 'newish' matte crayons? What one stands out to you?
