I've had these photos on my laptop for yonks (hence the long hair) but for some reason have never actually gotten round to blogging about the greatness that is the Revlon Matte Balms. It wasn't until I used them last week that I thought I best get my blogown and do a post.
So the Revlon Matte balms came out at the beginning of the year and there was major hype about them, in my eyes the hype was justified as these are the only products specified as "matte" that haven't made my lips look all crumbly and gross.
Jumping slightly on the chubby stick bandwagon, Revlon provided us with a matte alternative for those who prefer higher pigmentation and longer staying power. But halt. Not only are the colours vibrant and eye-catching, they also contain Shea, Mango, and coconut butter to keep your lips hydrated along the way. Wins all round.
I reckon the reason I fell surprisingly in love with a matte product was because they're not entirely matte, it actually applies quite creamy but dries to a lovely velvety texture which does an ok job of hiding dry lips!
With the onset of dreary (barlow) weather in the uk I can tell Standout is going to be one of my best buds, the gorgeous deep red colour comes off as a berry tone against my fair skin, and who doesn't love berrys in the winter? Especially if they're in a pie. With custard. And a fire. Mmmmm.
