Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm Review

Revlon Matte Lip Crayons

 See it through my Eyes

Revlon has some real gem of products; the last one I shared here was this foundation. It is my ultimate favorite. When I like a product in a brand, I tend to like the brand as well. Thus, in my quest I tried these lip crayons too.


The first thing to notice in these lippies is the crayon/chubby stick packaging. The body is matte and color coded for easy identification. The metallic touch on the body gives the otherwise matte body an edge. Unlike, most crayons in the market, these are twist up mechanism and thus we don’t end up wasting any product.


The name speaks of matte bringing in the fear of dry lips. These indeed are the smoothest and buttery lip products I have tried. They glide so easily and are velvety in texture. They transform into a matte finish in matter of minutes and stay put for upto 6 hours. Post 4 hours , they might dry out the lips. When that happens, I quickly dab very little lip balm on the center of the lips and press them together to let it spread.
One special thing in these lips crayons, is the minty fragrance on application. The fragrance lingers for a few minutes after which it seems to vanish. Some people might like it and some wont. I fall into the second category, I don’t like my lips smell like that.

Shades & Pigmentation

I got two shades, an orange and a pink.

Audacious – This is a beautiful wearable orange. If you are new to orange lipsticks, this can be a safe bet. The color is not over powering yet gorgeous, it doesn’t wash out my NC 37 skin tone. This will suit NC 30 to NC 42 skintones well. The pigmentation is buildable. This shade is sheer when compared to the other shade. My pigmented lips need two glides to show up well.

Unapologetic- This is a coral pink shade with neon undertones. It is one of those pinks which every girl would like to have in her vanity. If you remember my post on Mac Relentlessly Red, this is a close dupe. The shade is pigmented decently and shows up quite well on my pigmented lips. I prefer two swipes to bring an opaque finish. This shade will suit NC 30 to NC 40 skin tones I feel. It might look too stark on olive skintone. But the choice depends, one cant generalize that.

Staying Power

These stay put for good 6 hours. Beyond 6 hours they fade a bit and reapplication is required. I feel on reapplication, the previous layer flakes up slightly. To avoid this I use my finger tip to even it out.
