My Experience with Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm
Don’t enjoy wearing lipstick on a daily basis – especially to work or when I’m out running errands. I have pretty dry lips, and they always need a little boost of hydration to keep them looking and feeling good. When I came across the Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm on a trip to the makeup aisle of my local drugstore, I had to give it a shot – it’s tinted, it’s balmy, and it’s matte, so I thought, why not? Here’s my experience. Read on to find out if this is a hit or a miss!
Texture And Fragrance
This matte balm by Revlon has a velvety, creamy texture that glides smoothly on the lips without tugging or pulling your lips. It’s so smooth and buttery that it has the power to make one crave for some mint chocolate. It feels comfortable to wear, and it has a fresh minty fragrance. Because this sets into an almost matte finish, it does not transfer much.
This balm stays on for a good 4-5 hours without heavy meals, like most lip products. It can survive coffee or drinks, and touch-ups are easy.
Pigmentation And Efficacy
I was quite impressed with the pigmentation of these matte balms. Some shades apply beautifully while you may face some difficulty with others. Since it has a true matte finish, it can accentuate the appearance of lines or dry patches on your lips, so make sure you exfoliate well before you go in with it. The peppermint flavor may also irritate extremely sensitive lips.
On the whole, the Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm glides onto your lips effortlessly and imparts an even color on the lips. It leaves your lips with a slightly tingly feeling when applied, which helps in subtly plumping up your lips. Also love how conditioned my lips feel when I wear this.
Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm Shades
· 255 Enchanting
Enchanting is a brownish nude, and if you’re into neutrals, you might just love this one. It flatters all skin tones.
· 260 Passionate
Passionate is a combination of magenta and warm purple shade. Yes, it’s a bold color, but this won’t wash you out due to its warm undertones.
- 265 Fierce
This is a cinnamon brown with warm red undertones. This shade is super pigmented and is an ideal choice for anyone who likes earthy shades.
- 270 Fiery
Fiery is a dark burgundy shade, and it’s perfect for fall or winter. Even after fading, it leaves a lovely stain behind.
· 205 Elusive
This is a milky pink, and I’d recommend this color for cooler skin tones. It’s a very painty pink and could wash you out.
· 225 Sultry
Sultry is the most popular shade from this range. It’s a cool mauvey pink that looks wonderful on every skin tone. It gives you that ‘natural lip but better’ effect.
· 215 Shameless
Shameless is a cool-toned violet – not a color for everyone, but if you want to try something different, this one’s a great option. It suits medium to dark skin tones best.
· 220 Showy
This cool-toned barbie pink will suit lighter skin tones. It takes two coats to achieve a fully opaque finish.
· 250 Standout
Standout is a hot cranberry red and is one of the most popular shades from this range. It’s one shade that will look gorgeous on just about any skin tone.
· 240 Striking
This one’s a reddish-orange shade and makes for a great color for summer. However, it’s disappointing that this shade applies unevenly and is least pigmented when compared to the rest of the shades from this range.
· 210 Unapologetic
This shade is a gorgeous medium bright pink that looks flattering on all skin tones. If you have a medium to dark skin tone, this will look all the more stunning.

This is a pale coral color and would flatter deeper skin tones so well.

This bright orange will instantly brighten up your face. It suits most skin tones and is great for spring or summer.
