I’m not at all a “Purple” person. I have never liked the color, I don’t know why but it is the only color that I have stayed away from. I like pastel lilac but never a deep violet or a purple. But lately, since when Revlon came up with the matte balm crayons, there is this specific violet that has stolen my heart. Strange! So, I got it and oh! Boy, I’m glad I did! Presenting the Revlon matte balm in the shade 215 Shameless. Ok, now lets see how it has scored.

My take on Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm 215 Shameless:
The first thing that I loved about it is the adorable packaging. It comes packed in a color coded chubby stick with a sturdy cap I just hate caps that keeps slipping off, I have had experiences where my bags got totally messed up because of that. Anyways, the pencil comes with a twist up mechanism. It has a fresh minty smell and feels tingling for a while.
215 Shameless is a warm toned deep purple/violet color with a pinkish undertone to it.. You can play around with the intensity if you want a toned down look. It is said that shameless is a dupe for mac heroine. And yea, it is! The pigmentation is bang on! Superbly pigmented and gives a full coverage in just a single swipe. The texture is a velvety matte, which is perfect for me as it hydrates my lips but still gives that shine free matte look.
I usually wear a lip balm before applying a matte lipstick and this is the first time I have not used any. This matte baby just made me happy. It is quite creamy and glides well without making lips patchy at all, as many matte lipsticks tend to do that. The only downfall is that there isn’t enough product in it and is quite pricey for that little amount they offer.
Staying power: Glides smoothly and stays put for 4 to 5 hours, as it is a creamy matte so it tends to fade away. But that’s all right!
Price: 800/- (2.7 gms)
