Review | Revlon Colourburst Matte Balm in Striking
18 Mar 2014
Its official. I've found my go-to Spring lip. Initially I wasn't going to buy any of the Revlon Colourburst Matte Balm's as to be honest I already have lots of balms from different brands in my collection. But, a few good reviews here and there and I was sucked in. I picked up the shade Striking and I'm literally in love with it.
Its a beautiful red, that has slight orange undertones on me. Its quite a bold colour, but is definitely buildable to create a subtler or stronger look depending on your preference. Its such a great colour I really think it would suit most skintones!
Despite being a matte finish the formula is super moisturising as the balms are made up of a Triple Butter Complex - shea, mango and coconut butters. I've found that the balm lasts really well throughout the day, and I only had to reapply once or twice after eating! The balms also have a (really) slight peppermint scent which is great for the mint lovers out there, myself included.
I think its such a perfect shade for spring/summer, and they're great to use on the go. Can you tell I love it? ;) Now my only question is which shade I should try next! Any suggestions?
