Beauty | Revlon Matte Lip Balms



Matte lip products hold a strong percentage of my entire lip collection. There's just something about the suede like appearance that I long for. I've never been one for going crazy over new releases, but when the likes of Lily and MilkTeef wrote about the new Revlon Colorbust Matte Balms, I knew I had to get my hands straight on them. I swatched them all (no shame) and decided to pick up two shades that I thought would suit me the most; Standout, a deep red and Unapologetic, a beautiful fuscia. 

They glide on with super ease and the pigmentation (of these shades) are pretty much 100% opaque within one application. This means you don't need to use a lot of product, making it last longer. Upon application they do seem to have a slight gloss however they do dry to a suede-matte finish. Due to the intense colour I find that the lasting power is good, around 4-6 hours. My only problem is that these shades did tend to bleed on the lips, but hey, at £7.99 a pop I don't mind touching up every now and then. 

Let me know in the comments below if you've picked any of these up and if so, in what shades? Have you tried the 'laquer' version too? They're next on my list! Until next time, thanks for reading!

  15. I tried Shameless, which was the only colour I was interested in, and hated it.

  21. I bought some of these in Boots the other day on the 3-for-2, but totally regret not getting Standout because it looks absolutely gorgeous! I really love Audacious too, it's a lovely coral that actually suits a pale skintone which is brilliant because I'd struggled to find one that did x

  23. I have Audacious and I love it! Unapologetic looks lovely, that might be next on my list. The laquers are lovely too, they aren't as bold, but they are so easy to wear and really hydrating. x

  26. I have the red shade and I love it. I'm not a massive fan of matte lip products but it's not drying at all.

  27. They've either been sold out in the shades I want or opened when I've been at Target/Ulta but as soon as the shades I want are in stock, I will definitely be getting some! I'm a matte lips kinda girl and these sound amazing.

  30. I've been so obsessed with these coz I wear matte lips most of the time too. They're comfortable to wear and I love the pigmentation so I'm definitely looking into getting more shades! xx

    ReplyDelete
  31. I wasn't particularly interested in these at all before they were released as my lips don't like matte products, but I've still lusted after them since they were released and based on the reviews I've read these are easy to wear so I'm sure I'll pick one up at some point. I think Standout would probably be my choice x
