Beauty Fave: Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm

lipstick, revlon, red lips, lip balm, lip product

Today I wanted to share one of my new favorite beauty buys, Revlon’s ColorBurst Matte Balm in Standout. I think these have been out for a couple of months now, but I just discovered them in December when I was home in California. I spotted the display in the beauty aisle during one of my many trips to Target (I certainly took advantage while I was home- I went five times in one week!).

I’d been meaning to try the Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain, but instead I grabbed this new matte balm. Since my lips are big, I think that anything that’s too glossy can be a bit much on me. I gravitate towards lip products with a matte finish and I usually I don’t go for anything shimmery or glittery.

love this matte balm. First of all, it’s easy to apply and I can get great color with just a few swipes. It doesn’t dry out my lips and there’s just a hint of minty tingle when it’s first applied, which I like. I’ve found that it lasts about 2-3 hours on me and it fades nicely. If you prefer a glossier finish, you could also try their new ColorBurst Lacquer Balm.

Tell me: Have you tried any of Revlon’s lip balms?

    I’ve been wanting to try these! I’ve used the Balm Stain, and I really want to try the new matte ones.

    • I still need to try the Balm stain! If you do try the matte ones, let me know which one you like better! :)

    The color looks great on you! Do you use a sharpener once the stain has gone down?

    • Thank you Jenmarie :) These are twist-ups- so easy!

  • It can be so hard to find great opaque colors that don’t dry out your lips. This one looks great on you!

    • Yes, I hate when my lips are dry! Thanks Lydia :)


    I havent tried any revlon products, but I did just purchase the color whisper lipstick by Maybelline and I likeee!

    • Oh, I like those too! I wrote a little review about them a few months back :) Which color(s) did you buy?

  • Great color on you! I always discover things when I visit family and have a chance to go to Target lol NYC’s major dept selection is lagging

    • Thank you Kim! Yes, so true- I never go to Target in NYC, even though it’s technically not soooo far away… I used to live right by the Kmart in Astor Place and I always thought, “I wish this was a Target!!”
