REVISITED | Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Standout Review

November 20, 2015

I am compelled to tell you how wonderful the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Standout is!

It is a such pretty red which reminds me of MAC's Russian Red in terms of color pay off. But Revlon wins in terms of its formula I think. Let me tell you the reasons why.

First, it is superbly opaque and would flatter almost any skintone. It is not a red lippie with a bluish hint on it. Instead, it leans towards the brownish-red tones if you know what I mean.  Also, it is never drying on your lips.

But let me share a trick or two: upon application, take a tissue and give it a quick smack to take away most of the pigments. Now pack on some more color then smack on tissue again. By then, your lips should be matte with its color.

It is impressive too in terms of longevity. I personally can get 6-8 hours of wear and it is real so don't think I am exaggerating! It is packaged much like your childhood crayons back in the days. Application is super easy you can draw your cupid's bow without a miss. 

Overall, I am superbly impressed how this product works for me. So far, I'm hooked on another shade called "Sultry" which is a true your-lips-but-better-shade.

Overall Verdict:

5 Lipsticks

I would definitely repurchase for Php 575.00 (though Revlon counters had these lippies on sale recently which I missed by a day. Bummer.).

Next up: I'll review the "Sultry" shade.
