Hello everyone, today’s review is on my favourite of the Revlon Matte Balms and it is the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm Sultry. If you are following me on FaceBook you would know I have shared a picture of a Shopperstop package and asked you to guess what I got for myself. Today, I am sharing it. How can I be left behind while the whole nation is raving about the Revlon Matte Balms that has been recently launched in Indian market along with the other variant i.e. Lacquer Balms! When I first saw international beauty bloggers reviewing Matte Lip Crayons and swatching the Matte Balms, I was head over heels in love with the lovely shades. As I was preparing my list for the shades I was about to procure from the U.S., I heard the good news. The super-gorgeous lippies were introduced to India!
I have used their Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains and loved them. As a matte lipstick lover, I got to try out the Matte Balms. There are 8 scrumptious shades, from pinks to reds, plums to browns. I had shortlisted 3 shades from this range, among which, two were pink. Not all pinks suit my skin tone so without taking any risk I chose the 3rd one, which is named as Sultry.
Product category: Lipstick/ Lipstain/ Lipbalm
Packaging: These Matte Balms come in a wonderful matte packaging. It comes in a pencil/crayon kind of form with a twist-up bottom and a tight cap. You don’t need to sharpen them, only twist the bottom.
Shade: I am really bad at describing colours, but I will try to do it for you. Sultry is actually a mixture of matte pink, plum and brown, as my eyes can identify. Whatever it is, I like it very much. It will suit almost all Indian skin tones.
Product (Texture, Pigmentation & Staying power): The product is very creamy in texture and easily glides on the lips. It gives a decent coverage in a single swipe and goes absolutely opaque in two swipes. You don’t need to layer it but if you want to make it more intense, you can always layer it up. It doesn’t give you the powdery, drying matte effect, it actually has a velvety matte formula which doesn’t let your lips dry out. I have a tendency to eat up my lipsticks, nothing stays on my lips more than 2-3 hours, does that happen to any of you or I am the only one with this feature on this planet?!
Anyways, this lipstick stays on for good 3-4 hours on me, can stay a little bit more on others. It transfers a little when touched. Doesn’t feather out or doesn’t leave any stain behind when wiped off.
Stylish, sturdy, matte packaging.
No need to sharpen.
A lovely shade that would suit any Indian skin tone.
Creamy yet matte finish, good for Indian summer and this horrid humidity.
Decent wear-time, almost 3-4 hours.
Nice coverage, eliminates dark patches and uneven tone decently.
Easily available on any Shoppers Stop outlet, can be found online at Shoppersstop.com.Downs:
A little transferrable.
Will make a hole in your pocket.
My Rating: I will deduct 2 points for the excessively high price. Thus, it will get an 8/10 rating from me.
Will I buy it again?Though I love the shade and the formula very much but I don’t have any plan to buy it again. If I make my mind, I will mind any other shade from this range. I am waiting for a discount now.
