Revlon Matte Balms || Review


 Hellooo my lovelies,

 In my recent haul I picked up two of the new Revlon Colourburst Matte Balms. I'm usually not a fan of matte lipsticks because I find them quite drying and prefer the look of creamy lipsticks but these were such beautiful colours that I had to give them a try. I got the shades 'Mischievous' and 'Unapologetic'.

 Mischievous is a muted orange shade which is ideal since orange is the on trend colour for this season. I'm not too sure how I feel about orange lips on myself yet and whether I suit it or not so I thought I'd try out a more muted orange first. ONE DAY I WILL BE BRAVE ENOUGH TO WEAR ORANGE ON MY LIPS!! The second shade Unapologetic is a gorgeous pink shade which is pretty much an exact dupe for Impassioned other than the matte finish. Impassioned is undoubtedly of better quality and looks better and I think has a nicer finish BUT they are identical in colour. If MAC did a matte version of Impassioned this would be it!


 The formula of these lipsticks is really nice, they aren't in the least bit drying which I was worried about with it being a matte lipstick. They have really good pigment which transfers to the lips in the same colour that you see swatched unlike the ones that as soon as you put them on your lips, the colour from them vanishes. They're really creamy too so they glide on your lips rather than dragging across them which is another thing I'm relieved about. The only thing I find is they can look a little 'chalky' on the lips almost especially with 'Mischievous' but I still like wearing them and it's not enough to put me off.

For only £7.99 I think these lipsticks are worth the money although I do think they need more shades in the range as a few of them are very alike each other e.g. 'Audacious' and 'Mischievous'.

 Have you tried the Revlon Matte Balms? What did you think of them?
