Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm Review

   Let me introduce you to one of my favourite purchases of the decade - Revlon's newest addition to their lip product range, the Colorburst Matte Balm!

   My skin is naturally slightly dry, which means that my lips are prone to cracking when I put on lipstick. I've gone through a ridiculous amount of lipsticks, balms, crayons and glosses, but the only ones that have any moisturising qualities seem to be the most expensive. I completely understand that you get what you pay for with certain lip products, especially lip balms, as some manufacturers place an ingredient in their products that deliberately dries the skin on lips to trick the consumer into buying more. 

   But surely there are some excellent lipsticks skulking in the shadows of the makeup counters that really do a great job for a low price.

   At £7.99, Revlon's Matte Balm proves this theory correct! I couldn't stop myself from smiling, as that makes it the cheapest high quality lip product in my makeup bag.

   I purchased three similar shades, as Boots had a 3 for 2 on all Revlon products. I've swatched these in the photograph below:

   It's unusual for me to wear red lipstick, but I can honestly say that 'Striking' makes me want to wear it everyday. The two pinks, 'Showy' and 'Elusive', are the definition of pretty, and would look stunning for a day or night look!
