"Why are you trying so hard to fit in when you were born to stand out?"

Hello beauties! How are you??
Today I have a review of two shades from the new Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm's! I plan to grab a couple more shades soon so keep your eyes open for another review :)
These "balms" cost around $8.99 at the drugstore and there are a ton of shades to choose from! Along with these matte shades, there are also lacquer balms which have sparkle and shine to them!
These are super duper creamy (get ready to hear that a ton of times!).. I could not believe how smoothly they apply, especially for a matte lip product. They smell minty and even give a slight cooling feeling on the lips.
The first shade I have is Unapologetic (210)... Thanks for this shade, Amanda!:
As with most mattes, you absolutely need to exfoliate your lips before applying. You can see how patchy it gets here... Also, this shade does feather out a little bit for me, but it's definitely because they are so creamy. I think a lip liner would easily prevent that from happening. This color is crazy pigmented and bright!
The second shade is Elusive (205):
Overall, I'm really impressed with these. I love how smooth and creamy they are - I did not find these drying at all (YAY!!!!). I also love how travel friendly they are and that they are so easy to apply, and the pigmentation is phenomenal. The staying power isn't the best, but I enjoy applying them so much that it doesn't bother me at all. I can't wait to pick up more shades! :)
