Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm (Rs 800) available at Revlon CountersI have reviewed Revlon Standout Colorburst Matte Balm before and raved about it. Revlon has recently extended its range of colourburst lip products and have added Matte and Lacquer Balms. Both the variants are available in 8 shades across the country.
Shades – I am reviewing two more shades from Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm range. Revlon Striking is a red with warm undertones. I like the color and its less darker and more wearable then Standout. Audacious on the other hand is a orange shade that appears neon on me.
Texture & Formula – Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm has a matte formula with velvety finish. Texture of both Striking & Audacious is creamy and smooth, though I find audacious a bit streaky, I mean it doesn’t apply smoothly in one go. I have worn both the shades without a lip balm and none of them made my lips uncomfortable. Striking leaves stain so its best to exfoliate your lips beforehand or wear it only when your lips are in perfect condition. The satiny finish of both Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm turns matte after half an hour.Pigmentation – Both the shades Striking & Audacious are very pigmented. They cover lip darkness/ discoloration and even them out. I find Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm striking very flattering against my complexion. I have worn all the shades in my latest Video, you can check the same HERE.Staying Power – Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm Striking stays on me for good 4-5 hours and leave a strong pink-red stain behind.. Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm Audacious stays on for 4+ hours and leaves a slight tint behind.
Only downside is that once the formula wears off that dry chapped feeling seeps in. I have to apply lip balm after 4-5 hours.
I like the formula and finish of Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm. A velvety smooth finish and moisturizing formula. Both Striking & Audacious feel minty on lips initially. I like striking more since I am not a fan of orange shades.
