REVLON Colorburst Matte Balm #225 Sultry : Review/Swatch/FOTD

Posted on Apr 3 2014 - 10:49am by agnibanya
REVLON Colorburst Matte Balm , Rs 800/2.7 gnow available in stores across Delhi/NCR 

Velvety Matte Look. Moisture Rich Balm
A Matte finish that’s beyond plush. Balm that’s beyond comforting. Our Triple Butter Complex of Shea, Coconut and Mango butters nourishes lips. 
Originally available in 10 shades, out of which only 8 have been launched in India, these COLORBURST Matte Balms ,along with the Lacquer Balms recently hit the shelves here in India and the blogging world can’t stop raving about it. I was equally excited about these lip colors and I liked the shade selection much better in this range as compared to the Lacquer Balms, and though I was tempted to pick more than one, I got only one to first try out the product and here’s my review on it.
The REVLON COLORBURST MATTE BALM in Sultry is a neutral pink with an underlying plum tone to it . It looks deeper in the arm swatch, however , on my lips it comes out as a pretty neutral pink with a soft matte finish.

The packaging is matte plastic and in the same color as the product inside. It is a twist up crayon so you don’t need to sharpen it and is travel friendly too as the cap closes tight.
The formula is creamy, lightweight and applied smoothly without any tugging. It gives opaque color coverage . It applied evenly without any patchiness although it is a matte crayon and I was expecting it to be hard and dry. The formula actually surprised me (in a good way though!)because a soft matte finish with a hydrating feel on lips wasn’t exactly what I had imagined!, but that’s exactly what these Matte Balms give :)  Lips feel soft and supple even after hours of wearing this color.It has a minty fragrance to it and I did feel a slight tingling and cooling sensation on my lips post application, just like the Lacquer Balms.
The color lasts for more than 4 hours and fades uniformly leaving a tint behind.
Do I recommend these?
For ladies who suffer from dry lips and shy away from Matte Lip colors, this lipcolor is like a soft suede cushion for your lips. It is hydrating, color saturated and have amazing staying power. You can carry it in your bag and take it anywhere and do a touch-up on the go because the crayon style makes application a cakewalk. I am in love with REVLON colorburst Matte balm in Sultry because after a  long time I’ve found a color that’s neither TOO pink, nor a mature Plum…It’s somewhere in between, and that in-between is where my comfort zone lies! :)
