Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm Review

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm Review


At the end of my Fiji trip, we were in the airport to go home and I had a small amount of money left to spend. Without thinking I walked straight to the makeup counters! After hearing all the hype about these, I thought I’d try them out. The moment I swatched them onto the back of my hand, I was impressed. They are really pigmented and rich, with a “balm” like texture, just as the name suggest. There is also a large colour range to choose from, so it made it hard to narrow down! I only have three currently, but I am keen to try some more colours. The staying power is also considerably good. I put some on before going out for a meal and towards the end it had barely moved. I also find that the crayon-like shape makes it much easier to apply and get a nice, defined lip line. If you’ve heard all the great reviews, but still aren’t convinced, check them out for yourself and I promise you won’t be disappointed! Please comment below if you have any other great colours that I might be interested in trying!


220 – Showy Flamboyant – A bright, blue-toned pink.


245 – Audacious – A bright coral, with a hint of orange.


210 – Unapolagetic – A muted pink, with a hint of red.


Swatched in order: 220 – Showy Flamboyante, 245 – Audacious, 210 – Unapologetic

Small Priceline Visit – New Makeup

Small Priceline Visit – New Makeup

A couple of weeks ago I went to Priceline with the intention of just buying a new foundation, but because the Rimmel counter had 3 for 2, I just had to buy two lipsticks as well! I would have bought a lot more, but I’m saving my money for Fiji!


The foundation I bought was the Rimmel Match Perfection in Light Porcelain, after seeing Tanya Burr give it a great review. It goes on so easily and smooth, and it gives fantastic coverage. It’s also the perfect match for my skin, so blending isn’t a problem. Then sticking to beauty guru recommendations, I bought the Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick in 107, after seeing it on the gorgeous Zoella. I also bought the same lipstick in 103, which is a more neautral pink colour. They are both super pigmented and long-lasting, which is a must when it comes to lipsticks! Below is a swatch of both of them. I’d definitely recommend both these products!
