NEW TO MY WARDROBE

The Review: Revlon Colourburst Matte Crayons


Matte lip crayons and I have got a good thing going on at the moment. It all started with the Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencils, and with the release of the Revlon Colourburst Matte Crayons last month I can safely sat I'm set for matte lip pencils for the rest of 2014. When they announced the release of the matte crayons I spent the entire last half of the month waiting for them to come into store, and even managed to have a swatch pre-release date after cornering one of the poor girls in my local boots. Come release day I knew what shades I wanted and it was more of a sweep and grab operation before work. 

Instead of filling this post with copious photos and swatches, I thought I'd put all the swatches into a mid-week video for you guys (hence why this review has taken so long to action) - call it a belated Valentines gift. In addition to the matte balms I picked up there's also a Lacquer Balm in there too as the shade Demure was too pretty to pass up. 

Despite being matte they're no where near as long-lasting as the Nars matte pencils, but they are a great alternative if Nars is a little out of your budget. Revlon have also released some really beautiful colours that I haven't seen in matte form anywhere else. The ones I featured in the video are:

Complex: 
Nude with a hint of peach - my favourite of the bunch.

Elusive: 
A cool toned, natural pink.

 Mischievous:
A very light peachy red - the little sister of Audacious.

Audacious: 
A bright orange-y red. My second favourite.

Standout: 
A deep red - like MAC Ruby Woo, but slightly less vivid and not so matte.

Demure: 
A glossy pink-y nude with a hint of shimmer.

Safe to say I love them and I'm pretty certain I want the full collection - any recommendations?

  3. I've also been using Elusive. It's such a lovely colour but a real pity it doesn't last longer.

  5. I'm so impressed by the matte formula so far. I agree that they're not very long lasting, but the color and finish is so lovely :o) Xx

  44. I've been waiting to read a review on these as I wasn't sure if they were actually worth it. I swatched them when I spotted them in Boots and they felt a little slippery and if I touched the swatch with my finger they smudged really easily. Saying that though, you've made me want to get Standout, Elusive and Mischievous!! Those colours are so pretty and as you said, cheaper than a NARS Velvet Matte or MAC I suppose! Notice my attempt at self persuasion hahaha! Thanks for the post :) x

  52. The Matte Balm in Striking is a lovely color if you're still itching to add to your stash!

  53. I was so close to buying one of these the other day as they come in such pretty colours and I wanted something new and fresh for Spring/Summer. I am so indecisive so I ended up buying old faithful MAC Ruby Woo haha. I'm going to bite the bullet on my next shopping trip and just buy these!

  54. I just got Striking and it was love at first application. As of right now I only have one though. Have you tried using two at once? Kind of mixing and matching the colors? I'm trying to decide if I should get one that compliments the bright red I've already got, or just go completely different.
