Revlon | Unapologetic Colorburst Matte Balm

CLAIMS:
Let's take a look at what the product claims to do and whether or not it lives up to these claims.

**Velvety Matte Color**

I have developed a strong liking for a matte finish on the lips, and in my opinion - the Colorburst Matte Balm, doesn't deliver as well as I had hoped it would.

**Balm like feel**

When I was applying the balm onto my lips, it almost felt like I was applying a bit of buttery cream onto my lips. When it's on my lips, they feel moisturized - just like when I wear lip balm.

PIGMENTATION:
Due to the fact that I have darker skin, the balm is a lot more pigmented on my lips and I love it!

FINISH/TEXTURE:
The formula of this balm, gives it a buttery creamy texture with a minimal matte finish.

LASTING POWER:
I am yet to wear this for a full day to test how long it lasts. The longest I have worn it was 2 hours and it was quite hard to take it off. I am going out on a limb here and saying it will probably last you a full day, with one or two minor touch ups required?

PACKAGING:
The packaging complements the balm color and the matte finish. I view it as being sleek and elegant, but not unique as this type of packaging seems to appear on pretty much all balm crayons nowadays.

PRICE/AVAILIBILITY:
I purchased this balm from Edgars and I paid R120.

From what I've seen online, you can buy it at just about any store worldwide that sells drugstore makeup. You can also opt to purchase it online.

LIKES:
The balm has a strong pepperminty scent to it.
It does not dry out my lips.
The color is quite bold.
This color can be worn by women of all complexions.

DISLIKES:
When I applied the balm, for a second I had a burning sensation on my lips due to the pepperminty vibe.
The finish is not quite as matte as I had hoped.

OVERALL:
For the amount of money that was spent on the balm, I would say that it was a good buy and I got my money's worth. I am definitely in the process of considering going to the store and purchasing another matte balm in a different shade.
