REVIEW & SWATCHES: Revlon Colourburst Matte Balms!

I was recently invited to the launch of Revlon’s new lip products and being a lipstick queen, I had to attend!  Now I’m really, really excited about these products so I’m going to skip all the small talk and get straight into the photographs!
















L-R Elusive, Unapologetic, Shameless, Showy, Sultry, Complex, Mischievous, Striking, Audacious, Standout




I definitely favour matte to sheer in most aspects, especially when it comes to lip products so I was practically squealing when I spotted the matte casing of these balms, in the most beautiful array of shades ever!

These products are super pigmented and have a minty taste & scent once applied.  Some of the lighter shades can emphasize dry patches on the lips so be sure to coat them in lip balm to get them up to scratch beforehand. They wear well and the packaging is gorgeously chic and simple; I adore having these in my makeup bag!

My favourites are:
- Complex: a caramel nude which suits my pale skin gorgeously (despite being prone to show chapped lips)
- Mischevous: (probably my favourite out of the lot) which stood out to me initially for it's peachy orange.
- Audacious: a bright, orange toned red (this was the first one I wore because it reminded me of MAC's Morange, my favourite red lip shade)
- Standout: a super vampy, mature red with a hint of berry!


Good news is they launch in Boots stores TODAY (and in Superdrug from Feb 18th) for £7.99 each so go and check them out if they look up your street; I promise it’ll be well worth it!

Will you be picking any of these up? Which shades are your favourites?

  1. These look great, and thank you for showing how these look on your lips! I haven't seen many posts showing how they look on, or they just show the lips whereas I like to see the whole face for the overall look :)

    I like the look of Sultry and Standout, I'll have to see how they look on me.

  27. I went and bought Standout at the weekend, and I really want to try Elusive but they were already sold out! I wore Standout for the first time today and was very impressed - even on my dry lips it looked good for at least five hours!

  28. I rushed to buy Standout at the weekend (Sultry was also on my list, but completely sold out) - tried it today and am totally impressed! Even on my dry lips it looked good for well over five hours, and the colour is perfect. Will be keeping an eye out for the other shades I like the look of!

  43. Saw these yesterday at my local Walgreen's !! However, I did not pick one up. I wanted to try the Jordana twist and shine balm stain for.. $2.99.ea.... they go on with a slight shine, however they are matte as can be within a few minutes.... If you are going for the matte look, in a certain shade you might want to try some of the Jordana shades and save a few bucks... I have the shade cranberry crush and its very similar to showy...has great staying power and is a gorgeous shade :)

    anyone else tried the jordana ? what do you guys think ?

  63. Ahh these are my favorite ever. I have been addicted to Nars pencils for such a long time and I love how creamy yet matte these are. Shameless is probably my favorite, but I also like the neon pink colors layered over a darker liner for depth.
