with the right colour of lipstick and a smile, i can change the world.

A little while back, I set a self-imposed ban on buying anymore lip products. Why? I have an absolute ton of them! I wanted to focus on using up the ones that I already owned, rather than buy more and more new ones. I was doing pretty well with that....until I saw the display for the new Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms. (They had a display for the gloss version of this as well, but it seemed rather sticky and goopy to me. Pass!)

I was instantly struck by the beautiful colours, the sleek packaging, and the fact that they were totally matte shades. So, I splurged on a couple of the colours. I ended up buying Elusive, which is a bold pink, and Striking, a bright red. I love the pink colour for a date night in or a fun shopping trip, while the red colour is perfect for a night out.

As for the formula, it is super creamy and has a nice amount of moisture. Also, the colour is nicely pigmented. It builds really well, so the colour can be as intense or neutral as you like! When it comes to the packaging itself - I absolutely adore it. It's essentially like a lip crayon, and the product twists up from the bottom. Super easy to use and easy to carry around with you as well.

Since adding these to my makeup collection, I've been wearing them a lot. These shades are really versatile and just plain gorgeous. Ready to see them in action?

Bottom: Striking

So, there you have thoughts on these gorgeous new matte balms. Overall, I am super happy with these. Even though I broke my lip product ban, I don't regret it for a moment. I am totally obsessed with both of these colours. 

Have you tried the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms yet? Which colour do you like best?
