[Friday Lipstick #1] My amazing Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in 225 Sultry

For my first Friday Lipstick participation, I wanted to show you a lipstick that I\’ve been wanting for some time and that\’s happily mine now : Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in 225 Sultry-Sulfureuse.
At a local drugstore, I have discovered several collections of Revlon lipsticks and that color has immediatly caught my eye. That\’s quite easy actually : I don\’t like luminous, shimmery or sparkly lipsticks, I only like to wear matte antique pink or mauve lipsticks.
Its color is a mix of pink and mauve and during some time, I swatched this lipstick every single time I went to the mall. I ended up buying it off Ebay for €4.99 with no shipping fees when its retail price is usually at least €7.


This lipstick crayon is a creamy jumbo that\’s easy to use. According to the description you can see when you go to an online store to buy it, it contains a triple complex of Shea, Mango and Coconut butter although the final smell is peppermint. Smelling peppermint when I apply it is always kind of surprising for I\’m used to lipsticks that smell of candy or vanilla. The fresh peppermint effect fades quickly on the lips, it won\’t stay all day.

There\’s actually not a lot of product : 2.7g, that\’s not much compared to a Golden Rose Matte lipstick Crayon (3.5g) or a Golden Rose Velvet Matte Lipstick (4.2g), to keep it in the hydrating and cheap matte range.

The color is hard to describe : a mix of pink and mauve that matches all kinds of looks. Here I\’m wearing it with mascara so all that really catches your eye is the lipstick.
It is just a tad darker that my lips natural color and I really think it would look beautiful on pale as well as very dark women.

PS : I have taken these photographs when I had been wearing the lipstick for 3 hours. I had some trouble photographing it but it\’s all for the best seeing as you can see that 3 hours later, it\’s still perfect !

It\’s really comfortable to wear and it lasts minimum 4 to 5 hours if you don\’t eat. Of course after 5 hours I just couldn\’t help myself from eating.
If you eat while you\’re wearing it, it\’s going to last for 4 to 5 hours. After a meal it\’s still here, almost as perfect as when it was in its prime.
It holds really well and I have not felt any drying effect while I was wearing it. I am in love and I hope to be able to buy one or two more and I advise you get this one !
Are you tempted by this range of matte lipsticks ? Tell me all about it ?
