Howdy friends! I’m back today with a review of another Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm. After searching far and wide (ok, just Walmart & Ulta), I finally got my hands (well hand…it’s not that giant) on a tube of Standout. I totally fell in love with Sultry, so I was psyched to finally find this color to try!
This is a classic, beautiful red. I’ve looked for and tried other red lipsticks before, and I find that so many are either a coral red or a pinky red or an orangey red, but not just a true, RED. Yes, I know that sounds dumb. Trust me though. Go look for a true red lipstick, and you’ll see how hard it is to find! First world problems, I know.
As I said before, I love the Revlon Matte Balms. Between these and the Balm Stains, Revlon is quickly becoming the holy grail of lip products for me! The Matte Balm is matte (duh), highly pigmented, and very long-lasting. It does tend to sink into cracks and crevices on your lips and is obviously not moisturizing. Make sure your lips are smooth and moisturized before enjoying these rich, beautiful shades.
BAM. Did I tell you, or what? A true, classic red! Love it! I know it’s kind of bold, but I’ve been wanting to try red lips for quite awhile. Standout Matte Balm sealed the deal for me.
Don’t commit to this color if you don’t want it on for a LONG TIME. Seriously, today, I ate pigs in a blanket, went to church, drank water, took a nap, and ate chipotle over a span of several hours, and this stuff DIDN’T BUDGE. And no, I wasn’t eating super awkwardly trying to avoid messing up my lipstick or anything. I reapplied once to the inner area of my lips just to ensure the color remained even, but it really wasn’t necessary.
I kept my eye makeup simple, so Standout could be…uh…the standout.
The one small issue I did have was some bleeding around the edges of my lips. I think that’s pretty typical of several lipsticks, but it’s still a pain. I may invest in a “clear” lipliner and use that underneath as I’ve heard that eliminates bleeding and increases wear. Worth a shot!
For good measure, here are a few shots of me looking like a fool trying to take pictures…ridiculous. 😉 All for y’all. Get your own tube of Standout here!
