    Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm: Unapologetic, Striking, Standout, Fiery

    As much as my love for makeup go hand-in-hand with my passion for fashion, I'm just not a regular makeup-purchaser anymore, with me rather always choosing to rely on my regular makeup favourites.

    But I was really excited when I saw Revlon Colorburst matte balm lipsticks in Sasa at Mitsui Oultet near KLIA last month; I've been wanting to test out Fiery for a while after reading Kate of Kate La Vie's many praises for it (that girl can really sell makeup), but I never got around to it. There were also three other discounted shades (for less than half the retail price!) so I thought I might as well give all four shades a go!

    Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in 210 Unapologetic
    Shade: Bright pink - almost bubblegum-like (on me, anyway!)

    Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in 240 Striking
    Shade: Warm orangey red

    Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in 250 Standout
    Shade: Vibrant cooler red

    Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in 270 Fiery
    Shade: Plumy red (it appears more plum IRL though!)
    I'm a fan of Revlon's Super Lustrous range, and now I'm pleased to find another lip range from Revlon to love! I honestly adore these matte balms - I really should have acquired them sooner. I was wondering how Revlon would come out with a moisturising balm that's matte, but I think they've done a pretty good job - although it should be noted that these matte balms are not completely matte. They are however a fantastic option for those who crave for a mattifying lip result that would still be kind to dry lips.

    They're surprisingly pigmented, too; Unapologetic and Standout come out particularly strong on my lips compared to the other two. I can't decide which is my most favourite shade, but it's definitely between Striking and Fiery. All four are such beautiful colours, though.

    Have you tried any of these matte balms?

    Note: If anyone is wondering, buying makeup at an outlet - where things tend to be out-of-season and are unused old batches - is actually not a bad idea at all, providing the MFG date (manufacturing date) is recent enough; all of these Revlon lipsticks were made late last year.

    1. Striking and Fiery look like they would be my favourites too! Unapologetic is a bit too bright for me, and I think it would look OTT against my skin. I love the idea of the thick pencil-esque applicators - I really want to give these a go now!

      1. Hi Stephanie! As much as I like the bright pink, I see Unapologetic as the one that I would wear the least, actually, since it is SUCH a statement colour - perhaps too much, for my skin tone. I love the pencil-esque thing too, but I'm at a loss on how to sharpen them when they get too blunt. Any idea? I'd have to Google that one!
