Revlon has really upped its game in the last couple of years, bringing out lip products that rival those of well-known high-end brands not only on price, but also on performance.
The UK is unfortunately lagging behind the US when it comes to the timing of new launches and the variety of colours, though. Even so, whenever one of the new ranges is launched on these shores it gets me excited – and that is particularly the case with the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balms.
Four shades of these matte balm pencils were available in my local Boots: Audacious, and orangey-coral; Striking, a yellow-based red; Showy, a blue-based fuchsia; and Elusive, a mauvey-based pink. All colours are vivid and pigmented.
