Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm Pencil in Striking

The latest (dare I say hyped) beauty product on the highstreet are the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm Pencils - £7.99 (currently 3 for 2 at boots). Officially, they're released today but they've been on some stands since last week. As Revlon are my favourite 'drugstore' brand, I picked up the shade striking.
Striking is a bright red, leaning slightly towards a coral/red tone. The colorburst matte lip pencils are a chubby, twist up pencil with a soft, smooth and pigmented formula.


Striking applies evenly in one or two swipes over the lips, with a matte finish. I'm not the biggest fan of matte lips but this shade is easy and comfortable to wear, though the formula isn't either drying or hydrating. If you're a fan of matte lips then I would definitely recommend these. Striking wears well and doesn't transfer like the max factor lip pencils do. There is a glossy version of these, though I've heard the matte ones are  far better. 

Will you be giving these a try?

  9. These look like the matt version of Rimmel Colour Rush, I hope they are as good Colour Rush. Can't wait to get my hands on a Colourburst.

  10. That shade looks gorgeous on you, I have unapologetic (it's perhaps a tad too pink for my liking) - but the texture is to die for!

  12. This looks gorgeous on and I love how it's matte. I think with really bright colours a lot of the time they look better matte xxx

  15. This looks and sounds awesome! Beautiful shade, and I love the idea of a matte lip product that actually doesn't dry out your lips. Wendy xx

  16. I keep swatching these like crazy and I actually love the majority of both the matte and lacquer balms - I want them all!! Therefore I've resisted buying any so far! LOL!

  20. This shade looks gorgeous on you! I love lip crayons because they're usually quite hydrating on my dry lips but haven't tried these yet because I usually find matte products to be quite drying on the lips :) xx

    I am having a giveaway on my blog and would love for you to enter :)
