Hey hey gorgeous! I'm back! It's been super hectic lately with the end of school year so close, and while I wish I could blog more often, it just doesn't happen sometimes! Anyways, sharing these really exciting Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms that I hauled some months ago for my birthday! It's no secret how much I love the Just Bitten Kissable version of these, so let's find out if I fell in love with these just as much?
To start off, the packaging is pretty much the same but completely MATTE, just like the product inside. I've noticed that the plastic on these is not as sturdy as the previous lip crayons by Revlon and I have had one of the lids on mine crack although I've never had such a thing happen even with the cheapest of cheap drugstore products. It doesn't bother me too much since the damage isn't great. I also dislike that the bottom twisty thing on these is a lot looser than the previous versions. It tends to twist up much easily with just a touch which may be a problem for some.
The texture on these is so UBER buttery smooth. It's lovely! They glide on and are very matte indeed and also pigmented beyond my expectations so definitely true to their claim of being "colorburst, matte balms" because you get all three in one. Extreme color pay off, brilliant matte texture and that buttery smooth balm like application.
I get about 4-5 hours of good wear on these and a slight hint of color is left behind but it's nothing like the gorgeous even stain the Kissable versions had. Then again, Revlon makes no such claim of any staining powers for these so it's all good.
The shades I got are Sultry, a gorgeous rose color with mauve tones, Unapologetic, a warm, vibrant cross between a coral and a pink and Standout, a deep, true neutral red. In LOVE with my picks! My favorite is Sultry, then Standout and Unapologetic (also said dupe of MAC's Impassioned Lipstick). I do get much more longer wear out of Standout and Unapologetic since they are deeper colors but without eating or drinking all of these last incredibly well on my lips. They are comfortable to wear and lock in moisture instead of drying out your lips after a few hours atleast for me. Anyone with dry, chapped lips will need to exfoliate and apply a balm before hand. You also get the same minty scent and tingling for the first few mintues of wear as with the Kissable versions so if you were not a fan of that feature, this may bother you. I, however, couldn't be happier with these!
All in all, I am in love all over again! Revlon has me wrapped around their finger with their chubby lip sticks! Exceeds expectations! I might get one more, possibly Showy or Audacious because these are so good! You can get yours via Beauty Hub on Facebook!
