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.
I 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?
