Revlon’s Colorburst Matte Balm in Sultry (225)

I was thrilled to see this color in the lineup! Not a full-on red, not a super-soft pink either, just the right amount of mauve to give the color some depth without steering too far into “neutral” territory. It's easy to take with you, easy to apply on the go, all the standard “yay”-bits about the Colorburst Balm lines.

The color applies great, and is non-drying. Unfortunately…this is not a colorstain, so I have to touch up a bit more frequently than I'd like.

Photos that show how the product actually performs...! See how I create my swatches

A montage of three images: top left, close-up of the lip color in the tube; top right, the color applied over bare skin, to better show the shade; and below, the color applied to the lips.

I do love the color, and I'm glad I got it. I just wish that it lasted longer. If these were actual stains, I would possibly not be tempted to try other lipstick lines at all. (Revlon…are you listening???)
