Believe it or not but I'm not usually one for big bold, bright lip colours. I sometimes feel like I'm not confident to pull them off. This all changed when I laid eyes on the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in the shade #220 Showy. It was just screaming 'BUY ME!'
The first two things that hit me about this particular one were; colour and smell. The colour is a very bright bubblegum, barbie pink which is very much blue toned. The packing makes it seem like it would be a bit more warmer toned than what it actually is. The smell is this amazing minty peppermint that just floods the air when I take the cap off the stick. I love peppermint. I leaves me feeling so fresh and bright after applying this.
The texture of this on my lips is very smooth and velvet-like. It just makes my lips feel oh-so very soft. The matte balm has amazing staying power; when I put this on it can last up to, and most often, over four hours. The pigmentation is strong; a single swipe can be sufficient for the shade to become opaque. It leaves behind a soft, bright pink stain behind after most of the product worn away.
I'm in love; I really want to try the other colours now!
