First Impression: Revlon Matte Balm

I am taking any and every opportunity to try out products. I'd like to say that I finally bought this but a) I'm still on my spending ban and b) I swiped it from my sisters stash (not quite how it sounds, I asked to try it). I'm very happy that I got to try this because as you might have read in my Fixation Friday post then you know how desperately I want these, if you haven't then read it here

This is the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm. I want to say this is i the colour Striking but I'm not sure, really I should have made a note but oh well. 

Let's start with packaging. I'm a big fan of lipsticks/ glosses in a pencil format, they just look appealing as well as being practical. This particular product happens to look really sleek with the simple shape and silver/ colour finish.  

So these aren't the most matte things I have tried but they definitely give a matte finish. They are also a really creamy formula and they just glide on super nicely. 

The pigment is also there, I find with this colour (not sure about others) that there was no patchyness and the colour was so nice and even. 

They also have a bit of a minty smell which is a bonus to me. 

This is what it looks like on and I think it looks amazing. This colour isn't exactly what I would choose because it's orange based but I really do want to try more of these. 

Have you tried them? What do you think?

Speak soon
