Tried Tuesday: Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm

tt-revlon-thI think I am getting into the swing of autumn colours now (yes, I know it’s only been September two days) as yesterday I put a lovely berry shade on my nails, and today for Tried Tuesday, I have a lovely berry shade for my lips to look at, in the form of one of the Colorburst Matte Balms from Revlon.


I have a number of these now, which started with one of the Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains, but this shade hasn’t seen much love. I liked the shade (otherwise I wouldn’t have bought it) but as it has been summer, I have been avoiding darker shades for a while. But it is time for me to embrace richer darker shades for the next 6-9 months (the typical duration of an Irish winter) and so I am happy to introduce you to shade 225 – Sultry.


In keeping with the rest of the range, it comes in the form of a crayon (thank you Clinque for introducing the world to this idea) which makes it very portable and easy to apply. It is really almost foolproof. I would say totally, but unfortunately someone would manage to prove me wrong. The case for it comes in a colour co-ordinated matte finish, which lets you know at a glance what colour and finish it is, brilliant for when you are rooting around a drawer of these and their sister lacquer balms. Then you just pop off the lid to reveal the product inside, which again tapers off to a rounded point like a crayon. I find the shape to be ideal for working around the curve of the lips without needing extensive time or correction after, a definite plus!


And of course, I need to show you how it looks in use. Isn’t it such a delightful colour? It is the ideal level of richness without being too dark, which would make it great for office to party looks. I can see this getting a lot of wear in the next few months!

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms are €10.99 and are available from Revlon Stands nationwide.
