Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Shameless Review

I FINALLY FOUND SHAMELESS. I have been looking for this shade of Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm for months. In my Project 10 Pan a few months ago I decided not to buy any makeup, and I even said in that post that if I find Shameless then that will have to be an exception to my No-Buy. AND I STILL NEVER FOUND IT... until two weeks ago!

I was extremely excited about this shade because whenever you can find a lip color that's actually purple at the drugstore its a big deal to me. And by 'actually purple' I mean a color that isn't berry, fuscia, mauve- I want Barney the Dinosaur purple!

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Shameless
Price: $6-$9
Available at most drugstores and websites selling drugstore/Revlon products

The packaging on this product is pretty much the same as the balm stains and lacquer balms except it has a matte finish like the product inside. It's also nice that the color of the tube reflects the color of the product. This product does not require sharpening- just twist up the silver part of the tube to release more product.

The Matte Balms come in 10 shades; this on is a gorgeous, very cool-toned medium purple shade. From the swatch below you can see how great the color payoff is on this product! I was really impressed!

The lasting power on this product is comparable to most lipsticks. It doesn't last as long as the Balm Stains (and it doesn't claim to), but it lasts a good 4+ hours on my before I need to reapply.

This color can be slightly high maintenance because after I wear it for about 4 hours it gets really patchy and uneven. But the whole time I wear this my lips feel soft and smooth. This product isn't drying at all unlike most of the matte lip products that I own!
I'm so satisfied with this particular Matte Balm! The price point is good, it feels good on the lips, and the color looks great (AND ITS ACTUALLY PURPLE). I plan on buying more shades of this product- maybe some more neutral shades. I'll keep you guys updated on any new shades that I try.

Have you tried any of Revlon's Jumbo Balm products? Which is your favorite?


  1. Love how this color looks on you! I haven't tried the newer jumbo pencils, but I have the older ones (which I adore a lot!)

  4. Hey, Aaliyah ! I'm a new follower on GFC! The color looks awesome on you. It also kinda matches your bloglovin header. Lol. I've never been a fan of makeup but I have recently realized its wonders. Can you suggest a good brand for liquid eyeliners?

    I'd love it if you can follow me back! :)

    1. Thanks for following! :) My favorite brand for liquid liners for a long time has been maybelline! I really like the Master Precise Ink Eye Pen because it's really easy to use and it's really black

  5. I saw this on your Instagram and I went to the store and I looked for it and I couldn't remember the color :( so I had to stop by and this time write it down!! I love purple so I want to try this shade out!


    1. Oh my gosh really?! I love this shade so much, I really hope you enjoy it!

  6. I don't really like purple lipstick but you make this look good!
