Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Shameless

Velvety Matte Look. Moisture Rich Balm
A Matte finish that’s beyond plush. Balm that’s beyond comforting. Our Triple Butter Complex of Shea, Coconut and Mango butters nourishes lips. In 10 collectible, craveable colours.
After falling in love with Revlon ColorBurst Lacquer Balms and Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains I could not wait to try out the Matte version - I was not let down. I have always been a gigantic fan of matte lipsticks but these balms are in a league of their own. They go on thick, rich and velvety.

I got the colour 215 Shameless which is a dark purple-pink. It is an extremely bold shade, but it is amazing with a lilac eye look.
Application is easy and mess free because of its great pencil shape, no going out side the lines, not lip brushes needed. The pencil also retracts so you will never need to sharpen it, there really is nothing not to love.
One other strange thing I noticed that I am loving is that it didn't seem to smear on me at all! Most of the time bold or very pigmented shades will smear on me, but not this time.  I found no matter how much I ended up touching my face I never smeared it.

As for the claim that it comfortable and that all the oils and butters won't dry out your lips ----it is all true. My lips were super dry (chapped, peeling, bleeding) at the time when I chose to wear it, I immediately thought this is not going to end well. Well I was wrong, not only did my lips feel great, they looked great, the chaptness wasn't emphasized at all and my lips were actually softer.

I'm definitely going to pick up a few more of these some time soon.

Have you tried Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balms yet? What do you think of them?

I received these products for consideration, it dose not influence my views on them.
