Revlon ColorBurst Crayon Matte Balms



Revlon ColorBurst Crayon Matte Balms: £7.99 each*
(L-R): Elusive, Unapologetic, Shameless, Showy, Sultry,
Complex, Mischievous, Striking, Audacious, Standout

Following on from this post on the new ColorBurst Crayon Balm Stains, I wanted to show the most exciting from the new lineup - the mattes. With a balm feel and a velvety finish, these babies have the same Triple Butter Complex (shea, mango & coconut butters) and also have a light peppermint fragrance.





Revlon ColorBurst Crayon Matte Balm: Elusive

Elusive is a cool-toned light to medium pink that suits an every day look. Really easy to wear and it has that nude feel but with a little extra life thrown in.



Revlon ColorBurst Crayon Matte Balm: Unapologetic

Unapologetic is a bright reddish pink that brightens up the whole face without taking over. So lovely!



Revlon ColorBurst Crayon Matte Balm: Shameless

Shameless is a deep purple shade that is the most intense of the lot - for this reason I can see it being quite intimidating but also selling really well as it's a great colour for a night out if you want to try something a little different. It makes my lips look a bit smaller/thinner but with an invisible lip liner and going beyond the natural line it could look awesome!



Revlon ColorBurst Crayon Matte Balm: Showy

Showy is a bright blue-based bubblegum pink. Extra lovely with a tan I'm guessing (which I don't have right now!).



Revlon ColorBurst Crayon Matte Balm: Sultry

Sultry is a brown-pink with hints of plum and whilst it looks quite daunting and - dare I say it - mature in the bullet, I think it looks quite pretty on and has a vintage feel about it.



Revlon ColorBurst Crayon Matte Balm: Complex

Complex is a peachy caramel nude shade, which I'm guessing will be one of the bestsellers since it's great for every day. Again it's a lot prettier on than it looks in the tube if you ask me!



Revlon ColorBurst Crayon Matte Balm: Mischievous

Mischievous is a bright (but almost muted?) orange - it's really punchy and is probably the closest thing you'd get to a neon pastel if that makes any sense. It's a great colour for getting into spring!



Revlon ColorBurst Crayon Matte Balm: Striking

Striking is a neutral red shade that would suit pretty much any skin tone. It's not really a 'new' shade of sorts so it's not the most exciting, but it works!



Revlon ColorBurst Crayon Matte Balm: Audacious

Audacious is a bright, creamy coral shade. I really love this one! It's a perfect summer shade but it's not so distinct that it can't work well right now either. Probably one of my favourites!



Revlon ColorBurst Crayon Matte Balm: Standout

Standout is a deep red berry hue, obviously great for this time of year and really bring a polished vibe to a look. The matte finish makes this really quite retro!

If I had to pick favourites, it'd be between Audacious, Elusive, Mischievous and Complex. No surprises there really! They're all so lovely though and the formula sits comfortably on the lip; no drying out, which is especially surprising with a drugstore matte. The scent isn't overpowering - to be honest I had to go back and sniff them after reading the press release again as the smell really wasn't that strong! They don't leave a stain to my experience like the original range, but are easy to use on the go and last for a good few hours before there's a need to reapply.

All in all, these have really impressed me. There are enough shades that there'll be something for everyone's fancy, the colour pay-off is excellent and they're under a tenner each. They seem to have been released early (online at least!) so you can take a peek here. Do you have your eyes on any shades in particular?

  1. aw what a great review! it's great to see how the product looks on the face. will you also be reviewing the new glossier balms too? i really like the look of sultry and shameless for my skintone, quite unique shades for the drugstore. in fact, the range in general is very impressive. im not the biggest fan of matte lips, so looking forward more to the other balms... hoping for a cheeky 3 for 2 at boots on these bad boys...

  2. One of the many reasons i love your blog, true swatching dedication! I think my favourites are sultry (old woman at heart) and standout, the nudes look gorgeous on you though! Great review x

  5. THANK YOU for actually taking photos of all of these on your face, with make up! So much more helpful than the usual swatches on the back of hands. This has definitely sorted out which ones I want to pick up next week - although I'm not sure my bank will thank you for it!! Hahhaah, lovely post T xx

  12. The only colour I was interested in was Shameless and I did not like that one at all. Formula was just awful.

  25. I've wanted to try an orange lip product for a while now so Mischievous could be the one. Such a good price too.

    1. I wouldn`t go for Mischevious, the formula is really patchy! I found Elusive, Striking and Standout to be the best and smoothest. All the others have issues.
