Revlon Matte Balm Review

I think I may have found the perfect matte color stick today! The Revlon Matte Balm comes in 10 beautiful shades and has great coverage.

What’s to love?

I got the Sultry shade which is a nice dark mauve/pink. This one is also comparable to the Clinique Chubby Stick and the Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick only it’s a matte finish and I felt like it had great moisture.

The stick goes on super smooth and it’s got the most delicious mint scent. I was so glad it wasn’t mango this time! So the scent is a huge win for me. The packing is nice with a thick tube and a twist up design.

I didn’t feel like the matte finish was as matte as a liquid lipstick. I don’t think you can get that true-on matte finish in a cream but this one comes darn close. The pigmentation is amazing with no streaking or thin areas which was good too.

It did not have terrific staying power for me as I had to reapply after I ate but that was fine with me. I don’t mind reapplying if I get good moisture. It also didn’t pass the kiss test on my glass.

Overall I liked it.  I would buy the Matte Balm in another shade. I thought my lips looked pretty and plump which is always a win and the price is nice at $8.99.
