Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balms: Review + Swatches

Revlon Matte Balm in Standout
Revlon Matte Balm in Audacious
Revlon Matte Balm in Unapologetic 

After hearing and reading a lot of people rave about them for months , I finally caved in and bought a couple of the Matte Balms that released earlier this year. They come in plastic twist up style packaging, in the same colour as the shade, which has been very popular amidst a lot of beauty brands ever since the success of the Clinique Chubby Sticks. They have a very creamy consistency and don't appear chalky or dry looking on your lips unless it's very dehydrated. The colours are quiet pigmented and apply very evenly if your lips are well exfoliated. Matte lipsticks tend to accentuate your dry lips and show lines, but it wasn't the case here. Like all Revlon Balms, these have a peppermint flavour and you can feel a slight tingle on your lips when you first apply them, which thankfully goes away after few minutes. You will not notice it once you get used to it,  and it is actually quite refreshing in the hot scorching summer.  These don't stain my lips, and the creamy finish doesn't really set, which makes the lipstick appear fresh and bright even after few hours have passed. They wear for about as long as you don't eat or drink. So prepare for reapplications after your meals. These are priced at Rs 700/-.

I picked up 3 colours:
  • Standout; Warm Red
  • Audacious; Bright Coral
  • Unapologetic; Reddish Pink 
Which is your favourite Revlon Matte Balm shade and your favourite "twist up" style lipstick?
