*just got word these will be permanent and should be in all drugstores starting December!*
Revlon recently released some new lip colors. Two formulas, the Matte Balm and Lacquers (metallic shades) were on special displays. There doesn’t seem to be any info on Revlons site about these newbies so I’m not sure if they are limited edition but I’m going to assume they are.
I’m loving drugstore makeup more and more. They come out with some amazing and affordable products.
All four Colorburst Matte Balm were smooth and pigmented. They are moisturizing and long lasting. Shameless (the purple one) had the best formula and it didn’t settle into lines or require a good lip exfoliation like the other three. The two lighter colors, Showy Flamboyante and Mischievous were very creamy so I had to apply more in order to get it look even. All the shades are great and I really like them but they don’t look completely matte to me. They don’t have any shine or simmer but you won’t see a true dry look.
Not only do they smell like peppermint but you get a massive amount of product. They also swivel up so no need for a jumbo lip pencil sharpener.
Shameless was the hardest to find. I went to Bed, Bath & Beyond first and I got Showy Flamboyante and Mischievous ($6.99 each) and I decided to stop and look for the purple one and I got the last Shameless along with Unapologetic from Rite Aid ($8.99 each but on sale this week).
Shameless is my absolute favorite, I instantly felt like a diva when I put it on. Unapologetic is second pick, great shade for all skin tones. Showy Flamboyante and Mischievous would probably look best on light to dark skin tones, it might look too milky on my deep toned divas.
