As soon as I rediscovered these beauties in my collection, I knew I had to dig them out and start wearing them again, as I do like a lip crayon; especially these ones. This is my Revlon ColorBurst Balm Stains Review.
People compare these to the Clinique Chubby Sticks, but as I haven’t tried them I won’t be able to compare. These however have incredible pigmentation. They aren’t at all drying, but they do tug at the lips a little on application.
As this product is a stain, it means that not only is it moisturising, pigmented, but it also has amazing lasting power too! (After a trip to Costa, I did need to reapply for an even finish).
I have four colours all together:
Honey: A true nude, definitely a My Lips but Better shade
Rendezvous: A bright coral, that applies orange
Sweetheart: A bright fuchsia pink
Cherish: A cool toned baby pink
Left to right: Cherish, Sweetheart, Rendezvous and Honey
A downside for me is the smell, as I don’t like the smell of mint and these are peppermint scented. Luckily for me you can smell it on application and that’s about it.
If affordable makeup is your thing, then you’ll probably love NYX. I have a haul, full of swatches of pretty lip colours.
Have you tried any of the Revlon Balm Stains?
Thank you for reading!
