Revlon – ColorBurst Matte/Lacquer Balm

It’s probably not THE new product across the Atlantic, but it’s just came out in France and I absolutely fall in love with these little colored wonders : ColorBurst Matte/Lacquer Balm by Revlon ! How couldn’t mention them ? No way !
The lip jumbo as I have renamed it, is THE big trend since last year, can be found in many brands : Clinique/Chubby Stick ; Tarte/LipSurgence ; Covergirl/Lip Jumbo Gloss Balm etc …

I’m a huge fan of Revlon and its products and I should say thank you to American’s bloggers for their presentations of Revlon’s products. To show you how much I love them, when Lip Butter appeared, a few months later I had acquired almost all colours ! ” Whaaaaaaat ?! This girl is crazy !” No-I’m-not-but-you-can-call-me-beauty-addict 😉

The ColorBurst balm’s are real small colored bombs. It exploses, sparkles and dresses subtly your lips. What’s new : two different finishes, one matte and one lacquer which is almost the same that the first lip jumbos (Color Stay Just Bitten Kissable).

How could I say that … I LOVE THEM ! It’s a great finding and a true favorite ! Pigmentation is at the top, it stays on lips and doesn’t dry them. You can feel a minty side but it’s almost imperceptible and doesn’t last.

Great surprise too, I really have the impression that Revlon has improved the quality of it’s product’s pigmentation. For the finish I will say it’s between shiny and glossy and it leaves your lips perfectly colored.

Let’s continue with swatches, four shades : two mattes and two lacquers.

Fall and its surprises …

Fall is officially going to settle down, and with it a lot of festivities ! Personally I really like this season for some simple reasons :

  • FINALLY I can wear AGAIN my sweaters ;
  • put makeup with more darker, deeper, pronounced colors ;
  • and I found my grandmother’s habits by drinking teas and infusions all the day long !

This year it seems that the trend is purple, it’s not my favorite color but I must admit a pretty intense plum on nails or a smoky tones on eyes, it can be very beautiful. I have some favorites more or less affordable. The first is for “Eye Graphic” from Sephora, which 4 nice colors for purple smoky. The second is focused on the collection Pure Chromatics City Drive, Yves Saint Laurent, the Classy one, which contains four smalls pretty colors like a beautiful champagne or a deep steel. Finally, I fell in love with two nail lacquers, one of them is the Holland Park, Nails Inc (a little pretty purple neon) and the other one is Destin, Dior (difficult to describe but let’s say is a pearly pink, swatch emergency !).
