Hi everyone! Today I have a quick lipstick review + it is the Revlon Matte Balm. I’ve got mine in the shade 225, ‘Enchanting’ + it’s such a wearable colour that I thought I would make some swatches + give it a quick review.
I chose ‘Enchanted’ because it is such an everyday shade, a pale
dusty-pink nude + because I wanted to try out Revlon’s line of matte lipsticks. I picked this up at my local Boots for £7.99 which is a really decent price.
In my opinion, this lipstick glides on smoothly, leaving an even coverage of colour with a velvety matte finish + after applying it, my lips don’t feel excessively dry. The only thing that I didn’t like so much about this product was that it accentuated dry patches on my lips quite a bit so I would recommend gently exfoliating and moisturising your lips beforehand.
Overal I would recommend this product because the matte formula isn’t too drying, it doesn’t settle in the fine lines of my mouth + because it’s a lovely colour. However, if you don’t like maintaining you lips I think that this may draw attention to any chaps and cracks.
Here are the swatches over bare lips (top) and concealed lips (bottom):
Have any of you tried this line, and what colours can you recommend? Happy Winter!
