Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm In Unapologetic Review – Hey all beauty geeks!!! Hope all is well with everyone. After I bought Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Showy, I considered to buy another color in the collection. I thought may be a darker color might not emphasize lines on my lips and make them look super dry. Also, this was my second and final try to check if lip balms/stains/glosses can replace my lipsticks

My take on Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Unapologetic :
Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Unapologetic is a warm coral pink color that looks a bit neon, but nothing too scary. The finish on the lips is a satin-matte. These lip balms may emphasize lines on the lips and stick to dry patches. So, please use a lip scrub to exfoliate your lips before the application. Also, you may wear a moisturizing lip balm underneath. (Please excuse my dry lips while looking at the lip swatches).
Texture: The balm applies smoothly and feels velvety on the lips. However, the lips still look dry.
Pigmentation: The color is really intense and applies well in just one swipe. You can further build it up for a bold look.
Staying Power: Stays for long time and wears down as a stain after 4-5 hours.
Packaging: Cute chubby crayons with twist-ups.
Smell: Have a peppermint smell.
What I like about Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Unapologetic:
- Bright coral pink color!!!
- Satin-matte finish.
- Lasts for 4 hours.
- Easy to apply and travel with.
- Velvety feel on the lips.
- Cool crayons packaging .
- May suit more skin tones compared to Showy.
What I do not like about Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm in Unapologetic:
- Enhances the dry patches on the lips.
- Creases in my lips.
- Need to apply lip scrub and moisturizing balm before application.
- Unavailability in India.
I love this color as well. The pigmentation is awesome and stays long. However, even this makes my lips look chappy and super dry. If you have smooth lips, go ahead and buy it.
