Beauty Blurbs: Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Unapologetic


My love affair with Revlon lip products is no secret. This past weekend I broke my bronzer, so to cheer me up my sweet husband took me to Ulta to replace it and pick up a few more things. 😉 He actually picked out this Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Unapologetic for me, and I love it!


This BRIGHT pink has a slight mint scent and is super pigmented. It is totally the perfect color for the fun, summer months to come.


You can see below the matte balm does slightly sink into the crevices of my lips, but it’s not nearly as bad as Mischievous. Once I layered it, it was a lot better. I think with a good lip primer or some balm underneath the problem would be solved.


The wear-time is okay. It stayed on really well until I ate lunch, so I’m pretty pleased. It’s definitely not moisturizing though, so if you have dry lips, I’d stay away or invest in some great primer.


You can see in natural light Unapologetic is a really beautiful pink color. I wore it shopping the other day, and the sales associate complimented it and couldn’t believe it was Revlon! She told me it looked much more expensive and thought I was lying until I pulled it out of my purse. Guess that’s a good sign??


The great thing about the Revlon balms is that they come in matte balm, balm stains, and lacquer balms, so they have something for everyone! Plus, you can pick them up anywhere, which is great. Hope if you try Unapologetic you like it as much as I do!

6Also, in the spirit of full disclosure (in case you couldn’t tell), I took the last few pictures in my shower. Like literally, standing in my bathtub, taking pictures of myself. What? It had the best lighting at the time! Hey, when you live in an apartment and are working with a point-and-shoot camera, desperate times call for desperate measures.

On that note, I’m off to enjoy Seinfeld reruns with my perfect lipstick-selecting hubby! Hope you had a great Wednesday!

You may enjoy these, too!


  1. Love the bathtub pic!! Hey if that’s the best lighting I say, “Go for it!!!” You look beautiful in that lipstick!!!!!

  2. I knew it! (The lighting thing)

    It actually works really well if you have a primer and use the 8 hour Chapstick, I personally use vanilla scented bc I think it compliments the mint, but that way it keeps it from making my lips look old and stays smooth! Just a tip! I love reading your blog btw, lol


    1. Oh yay! I’ll have to try! What primer do you use?? I’ve been looking for a good one! And yes on the lighting…a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do. Haha! Thank you for the tips and for reading!!

  3. i love so much that color on you! i need it!! I just discovered your blog and its amazing! xoxo
