Going Matte with Revlon

I have always been a creamy lip product kinda girl. I love how nourishing they can feel on the lips and how they give a fuller look and so much more kissable. However, matte lips are everywhere lately and a lot of people rock them so well. So, I took the plunge and decided to give the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms a whirl in a few different shades.

For me, matte lip products make me worry that my lips are going to be dried out and I'd have to keep applying a hydrating lip balm every half an hour. Although, when I applied the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm onto my lips for the first time I was pleasantly surprised. The formula is very creamy and very soft when applying. It also has a minty scent/taste to it which is something a bit different from the usual fruity/sweet flavour. Strangely enough, my lips didn't feel like all the moisture had been sucked out of them with a straw. They didn't feel nourished per se, but they definitely felt soft considering how matte the product looks. 


The shades I picked up are all gorgeous, the bright fuschia-toned pink 'Showy' is something I would never normally go for but it looks lovely on - especially for a daring look! 'Sultry' is gorgeous for the autumn, a dark pink with a hint of berry mixed in. My personal favourite is the shade 'Elusive' as it's a light dusty rose pink but it is more subtle than the other shades and I love an easy-wear lip product. Perfect for autumn as they're on trend with the matte look but provide plenty of colour to spice up your makeup look. I am now officially cool with matte lips.

  2. I have all three of these and yep, they're lovely! I'm definitely a fan of matte lips. I think a matte finish makes bold color a lot more wearable.
