Beauty on a Budget: Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm


Revlon recently expanded their collection of lip crayons, by adding two new finishes: matte and lacquer.  i kinda stumbled upon these a few weekends ago on my way to a hair appointment. those pit-stops at the drugstore always lead to accidental hauls. i wasn't as interested in the lacquer finish, but it was hard to pick from the beautiful selection of matte shades. i eventually selected 4, even though i really wanted to take them all home with me.

as you can see from the swatches the pigmentation is great, but i wouldn't describe these balms as having a true matte finish...more semi-matte if you ask me. with the first swipe they were all pretty bold and intense, although Complex was a little patchy and took a bit more work to get an even application. these have a slight peppermint scent, but nothing too overpowering and honestly the scents fades fairly quickly. i'm able to get about 4-5 hours of wear before i need to reapply, which isn't half bad, especially for a drugstore brand.

the new Revlon ColorBurst Balms are available in 20 new shades: 10 matte and 10 laquer. they retail for around $8 and are available at your local drugstore.

have you seen these in your local drugstore? which one is your favorite?
