Revlon’s Colorburst Matte Balm in Complex (230)

Not my favorite lip color ever…but also a little better than I thought it would be. I have the same concern with this matte balm that I have with the other Colorburst Matte (and Lacquer) Balms: the color doesn't stick around too long, there's no “stain” element that made the original Balm Stains so wildly popular.

This color does lean just a touch warm, a little more “pale terracotta-tan” than “gold-tan”. It looks just a little bit orangey on me, but then again…I think it's supposed to. Application is fairly easy, and longevity is a teeny bit longer than the Lacquer Balms, but it still doesn't stay around more than about an hour. (Less if I eat or drink anything.)
