Today I’m reviewing the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in shade Sultry! If you have medium to deep complexion and are looking for an everyday wear color, this one is for you!
Price : Rs 800
My take on the Product
The Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm comes in a twist-up crayon packaging, the tube is the shade of the lipcolor which makes them easy to locate. I love the fact that its a twist-up! I hate sharpening crayons and losing so much product in the process. The texture of the balm is very smooth, there is no tugging and it glides easily on the lips. The pigmentation is great – you don’t need multiple swipes to get the true color on the lips. It has a mint scent which I find refreshing. The product has a satin finish on the lips and despite the matte formula, it doesn’t parch out the lips. However, it does slightly emphasize lip lines like most matte lipsticks do. I found the formula comfortable to wear and fairly long lasting. I won’t say its moisturizing but its not drying either. After about 4 hours, there was a little fading but there was no flaking or excessive drying. I did feel like applying a little balm at this point. It lasted another 2 hours on me leaving a light stain.
Overall, a decently comfortable matte formula that wears long without being unforgiving on the lips, I like it! If you have very dry lips, a little lip balm before application would help solve any potential dryness you might feel with this. I don’t personally love matte lipsticks, I prefer creamy/glossy finish lip products on myself but this is one of the good matte formulations I’ve tried.
Sultry is a dusty rose color that would be beautiful on medium-deep complexions. On very fair skin, the earthy plummy tones might take over giving a dull look but on deeper skin, the rose tone comes out adding life to the face. Great color for everyday wear/work wear. Highly recommended!
