Revlon Matte Balm(s)

I had to make a four hour round trip to get my mitts on these lippies (dedication or insanity?). I jest, I jest... I did make a four hour round trip, but its sole purpose wasn't these lippies.

























I'm a huge fan of the original Revlon Balm Stains so its needless to say that I was so excited to hear they were releasing matte versions. I picked up the shades 'Elusive', 'Showy' and 'Striking'. The top pick for me is definitely 'Striking' I've been wearing it almost everyday to work and I've had so many compliments. They are super pigmented but the real show stopper for me is the formula. They're incredibly smooth to apply and give a true matte finish without clinging to any dry patches. Sounds to good to be true, no? They don't last as long on the lips as the original Balm Stains but they smell so good I have no problem having to reapply every now and then.
To make things 10x better I bought all three of these with my Boots Advantage Card points and they're currently on the 3 for 2 offer. Snap them up while you can girls!

  6. Glad you love their formulas! I've seen all the shades on other people and do think almost all of them are so beautifully bold! But for myself, my lips are often too dry no matter how much vaseline I sleep with on them so I avoid stains and matte formulas!

    1. The shades are bold for sure! That is such a shame that you have to avoid matte formulas. Have you tried lip scrubs before? They are a god send xx
