Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms | The Review

 So I wanted to wait a couple of weeks before expressing my undying love for these recently released Revlon Matte Balms as I wanted to make doubly sure I was actually in love with them rather than the idea of them. I had a feeling that they would be pretty much made for me as I already loved the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains - yet these were the matte version and I love anything matte because in my opinion, matte = longer staying power.

However I was right (as I always am) and I'm absolutely head over heels in love with these lip products. They have the same minty smell as the JBKBS which is off-putting for some although I don't really mind! I took the swatches of them on my hand photos earlier this evening and the swatches are still very visible! I think they're lasting power is amazing!

So as you can see from the photos above I chose two pretty brave colours and one neutral just to be on the safe side. I had no idea what to expect as I ordered these online from Boots and their images of swatches are abysmal, but I went along the photos from other bloggers who were very lucky to be sent them. However I'm really happy with the choices that I made, although saying that all the colours in the matte range that they've released are all very wearable.

 I was a bit wary of Shameless as I'd never ventured into purple lips before but I'm glad I as I actually really like it! Standout - is probably my favourite as it allows me to make red lips so easy to wear as I'm usually so scared to wear one in case it smudges! And finally Elusive is a beautiful brighter than your average everyday colour which is perfect for Spring!

I'm addicted! How about you guys? Have you tried them? Are you as in love with them as I am?
