Hi Lovelies ♥
This post was actually suppose to be posted on Tuesday, but I really am not happy with the quality of my pictures that I post on my blog. So I am looking into getting some lighting. Hopefully this will help me.
Anywhooooo haaaaah….on to the topic at hand.
When I first saw these ColorBurst Balms being talked about on YouTube. I knew I wanted too try them. These would be my first ‘lip balm’ type of product. I like that fact that they actually had colour to them and they are not just a lip balm, but provided colour as well.
The colour that I really wanted was from the Matt collection was ‘Shameless’ the lovely purple colour. But let me tell you I had the hardest time finding it at the drugstore, and when I did people had already opened and tried them. Why do people do that??? Anyways…. I eventually was able to find it unopened 🙂
Back to the post…..
There are 10 matte shades and 10 lacquer shades in the colorburst collection. I have 2 shades from the matte collection : 215 Shameless & 230 Complex. I don’t think I would purchase a lacquer balm, just because I do prefer matte looking lip products.
♥What Revlon Says:
At Target they are $6.49 and at Walgreens they are $8.49 – don’t ask me why they are so expensive at Walgreens
For the purpose of this blog post I actually had to take note of how long this lip balm would last on my lips. Where as other times I really didn’t pay attention to it. I applied it, ate a grape fruit and it basically was gone. Now if you don’t eat something like a grapefruit, it will last a little longer. Will my experience with mattes like MACs Ruby Woo. That lipstick has some awesome staying power , you can eat have a drink and you will still have product on your lips- cause usually matte lipsticks do stay on the lips a little longer, before you have to re-apply. But we have to keep in mind that this Is a matte ”balm”, so I am not to fussing about having to re-apply it oh so often.
And they do not claim to be long lasting- so we can not be mad at that …right?
♥Colours I Picked Up:
215 -Shameless – word was that this was a dupe for M.A.Cs Heroine. I like this shade ALOT only problem I have with it is that it applies patchy. But I think if I were to apply it with a lip brush, it would go on so much better.
230-Complex – And this shade is just a my lips but better colour. Its a browny nude – With this shade I actually do apply a gloss, but not cause it is drying but it just looks better with a gloss on my lips
I still want the one more colour from the matte balm collection and its the colour Elusive. But guys let me tell you either that colour is sold out or its already been opened…aggggggg
