Swatches of Revlon Color Burst Matte Balms in 250 Standout Remarquable and 225 Sultry Sulfureuse

11:50 AM

After reading numerous reviews of the Revlon Colorburst balms, I decided to use some CVS Extra Care Bucks to put towards two of the matte shades called Standout Remarquable (250) and Sultry Sulfureuse (225).

Standout is a bright, neutral, red.  On my skin tone, it appears a bit cooler, but I think overall this is mostly on the neutral spectrum.  Sultry is a deep mauve shade. Both are matte, and have a smooth, almost velvety texture when applied.  

I have found over time, that a lot of the matte lip colors out there are either drying or cakey.  These most definitely are not.  The Revlon ColorBurst apply so smoothly, evenly, and with precision on the lip.  Pigmentation is stellar - comparable to a lipstick - not translucent or waxy like a lot of the crayons on the market right now.  Truly a great product, I would certainly suggest you grab one for your purse in a color that you wear the most.  If you are looking for a good, go-to red, pick up Standout.  It is quite honestly the most perfect red I have in my bag right now.  

Below is a FOTD using the Sultry.  Love it.  

What color have you picked up?  I am going to snag some of the other shades/types and swatch them as well.  These really are great!

These are available to purchase at your local drug stores and mass merchandiser - retail for approximately $7.99-8.99 depending on the location.

  1. Pretty colors! Long-wearing? Do they bleed?

  2. Yes, these are very long wearing. I will say, the bleeding factor depends on the color - the red bleeds a little bit, but the mauve not so much. I haven't tried any other colors, nor have I tried the non-matte version, so I can't speak to those either.

  3. I picked up Mischievous and I love it! I almost picked up sultry, but It's literally sold out everywhere I go!
