Hello!  Today I just thought I would just give a quickie review of the already infamous Revlon Colourburst Matte Balms.  I bought two, in the shades ‘Unapologetic’ and ‘Elusive’.  ‘Elusive’ is a daytime/work-friendly shade that is a dusky, soft pink and ‘Unapologetic’ is a bright coral pink that just oozes summer.  I bought them when browsing Boots’ 3 for 2 offer, these were the two shades that stood out most to me and I preferred the finish to the lacquer balms. 
The pigmentation of these products is excellent, the level I would expect of a much higher end lip crayon so that is a massive bonus.  The worry I had with these was that they may be drying on my lips because of the matte finish, and as someone who is forever battling dry lips I can say that this is thankfully not a problem at all.  They feel incredibly soft on application and you can tell that they are balm based.  The matte finish is perfect if you prefer a more subtle look, or just favour it over a glossy finish.  ‘Unapologetic’ is definitely my favourite, I already know that I will be using this all over spring/summer! ‘Elusive’ will be my go-to for work days, it is subtle enough to just add a pop of colour but it can be built up more for a bolder look too.  Photos will follow on my FOTD post!
Have you tried any of the Revlon Colourburst Matte Balms? xx


  1. I haven't tried this yet but I did do a quick swatch on my hand and the pigmentation is amazing! But I'm not a massive fan of matte lips on myself anyway! xx

  2. I loooove matte lips, but even better if it isn't going to majorly dry my lips out in this weather xxx
