Revlon Colorburst Matte and Lacquer Balms!

Hi Guys,

I've been so excited for these to launch in the UK! Now they're here!, Plus they're a week early! They technically don't launch in the UK till the 22nd of January, but they're online at and I found some in store!

Theyve brought out two new types to go with the originals, Matte and Lacquer. There are in the Matte Range and then in the Lacquer Range, I think I may have a new love in these!

Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in 105 Demure

Demure is a very sheer light pink and after looking at one or two of these in store they seem to have a slight shimmer in the bullet, when swatched though its not like a shimmer and glitter overload it just looks glossy and shiny sort of like a gloss, basically exactly what it says on the tin. The packaging is lovely, I'd say they definitely look more high end than they are. The only downside is they're a nightmare to photograph haha!

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in 205 Elusive

Out of the Matte offerings I picked up Elusive which is more creamy and just what it says, matte. The packaging a long side it is also matte, which I love, I do find it doesn't slip when you hold it as much, not that that's usually a problem anyway. The actual shade for me is just sort of like a your lips but better yet matte shade haha. its a light Rosie pink, I'd say its more brown toned. 

(Swatches: Left to Right - Demure and Elusive)

I really want to pick up Complex from the Matte Line which is a nude and Standout also Matte which is a red, but do I really need another red matte lipstick? I will definitely need to get my hands on Complex though! They both also have a peppermint scent to them which is rather nice. 

Both are available at for £7.99 - HERE

  4. Loving the look of these, looks so good and well pigmented. I prefer crayony type lipsticks as well because I find them easier to apply! Lovely review!
