Review + Swatch: Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm & Lacquer Balm

Disclosure: This is not a sponsored post. I bought all these products myself.

I have a problem. Lipsticks, balms, lip lacquers, lip tars, lip gloss, lippies… I love them all. Plus I am on the ultimate quest to find the perfect nude lip for my skin tone. So a trip to the drugstore is incomplete without at least 1 lip product to try.

Today we’ll be talking about the Revlon Colorburst balms. I have a smattering of their matte and lacquer (glossy) balms.

They’re awesome because:

  1. Packaging: Chubby, pen-like product fits comfortably in the hand, makes it easy to hold and apply, and also the secure cap and twist-up bottom make it a nice addition to the purse. The colors of the product match well with the colors of the packaging — so you know what you’re getting.
  2. Product: Both the matte and lacquer types are in a fat, crayon-like shape. They both glide on very smooth. Color payoff is excellent, as is the buttery feeling of the product on the lips. There is some transfer due to normal eating, drinking, and daily life, but for the most part it stays vibrant throughout the day. Additionally there is a subtle, pleasant, peppermint scent on each type when you first apply.

Things to consider:

  1. Price: $9.79 at CVS Pharmacy. A little on the spicy side, but they last FOREVER.

To the swatching!

Swatching these babies was fun in that they glide on super easy. And they came off clean with one or two swipes of a cotton round with micellar water.

When you look at these colors, just keep in mind that I am probably the palest Floridian in the state (and I’m from here).

So I have six now and I love them all. I definitely would recommend you try at least one of these for yourself! 🙂
