Last week I paid a little visit to 'Boots' and 'Superdrug' (drugstores) I wanted to have a little scout around the make up isles and see what I goodies I could haul. I didn't really know what I wanted, although I did want to check out the Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balms. I'm always a little late when it comes to products that create hype in the beauty world - but hey I prefer to go at my own pace - Haha!
If I'm honest I wasn't overly blown away by the colours in the new Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm collection, I swatched away but nothing stood out for me UNTIL I came across 'Shameless' It was LOVE at first sight, no exaggeration - An amazing purple; not berry, not burgundy, not wine BUT PURPLE! I didn't know if the strong blue undertone would work against my skin tone for me but I was already attached so into the basket it went.
I applied 'Shameless' and was completely WOW'd by it - it's vibrant, it's bold and it really is such a pretty purple. I don't think I have anything similar to this in my forever expanding lip collection, everything similar is more on berry side.
The texture of the ColorBurst Balms is similar to most on the market - The're hydrating, nourishing and feel so comforting on the lips. I wore this out on Saturday night and I was really surprised at the intensity and longevity of the colour - I applied it around 9 pm, didn't touch it up once and at 4 am when I came home it was still perfectly in place - Result!
ADORE Shameless! Have any of you checked out the Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balms? Check them out HERE.
