I was really interested in the new Revlon ColourBurst Matte Balms when I saw them. They are lip products that look like chubby crayons and are retractable. They are supposed to give your lips a velvety matte finish. They contain shea, mango and coconut butter to moisturise your lips.
The shade I picked up to try is a super cute watermelon pink colour called Elusive (Shade 205). I think this a really wearable colour that will suit lots of different skin tones. It’s a great shade for spring. As you might expect, it has a matte effect.
The product is really easy to apply, as it has a super creamy texture which just glides onto the lips. The crayon shape actually really helps with swift application. I can virtually do it without a mirror.
The first time I used the product, i was concernes as it left my lips feeling tingly as if I had rubbed fresh mint or menthol or something. It’s odd, I’m not really sure why anyone would want that. However, luckily the tingly sensation disappears after a while and just leaves a normal lip product.
The colour stays put really well. There is a slight transfer onto cups and things but not much at all, and the colour lasts normal day to day drinking etc.
Overall, I’m really pleased with this product and will definitely consider getting more colours.
