It may be summer time, but purple lips are always a go for me! Continuing my lip crayon reviews, I will be sharing the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Shameless with you guys. I actually picked up this guy through one of the CBB meet ups. It's always such a fun time to get together with other beauty bloggers, share stories, and swap makeup!
Name: Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm

Packaging: The lip crayons that I've been reviewing have all been pretty standard. Same with this one, it's a pretty standard size with an outer packaging that matches the color inside! There's no other designs on the packaging other than the product information.
Color: If you love purple lip colors, this is going to be for you! I think for some people, purple is a daunting color but for me it's one of the more flattering colors. Shameless swatches a true purple! But I think since my lips are so pigmented, it comes off as more of a deep magenta when worn. The color is definitely pigmented so you'll need a q-tip to touch up or use lip liner first.
Formula: Since it's a matte lip crayon, I was expecting it to be quite drying. However, it's actually quite light weight and almost moisturizing feeling when you apply it. There's a nice mint scent to the product that fades after about 10 mins. The wear time is a bit short considering how deep this color is. I noticed fading after 2.5 hours with light drinking. But overall I'm very pleased with how it feels on the lips and how it looks.
It looks a bit patchy here but in person it looked quite good. I think I went too light handed.
Total: 36/40 A
This is definitely the winner of the lip crayons I reviewed so far! The scent, formula, and color are all top notch. It's hard finding a matte lip color that doesn't dry out the lips and this does just that and in a flattering color too!
