Revlon Colorburst: Unapologetic & Enticing

I'm a huge fan of Revlon's Lip Butters (which are also part of the Colorburst family), so you can imagine how excited I was to finally see this display at my local Rite Aid last week!

This new collection features two finishes: Lacquer and Matte! The 10 Matte shades come in matte packaging and the 10 Lacquer shades come in shiny packaging. Believe it or not, this actually took me a minute to figure out because the shades were all out of place in the display....I know, no excuse. Brain fart moment for sure! As you can tell by the picture, the matte shades seem to be very popular because there are only 3 left compared to the reasonable amount of Lacquer colors available.

I only picked up one from each section to see if I liked them before going crazy and buying everything. (Who am I kidding though, I know it's the inevitable ending) Anyways, without further ado, here are some photos!

I picked up the matte shade in Unapologetic and the lacquer shade in Enticing. The balms are sealed by a clear sticker which is a nice effort, but it doesn't really prevent tampering with.


I found the formula of this balm to be very smooth but also quite slippery. The texture kind of reminds me of NXY's soft matte lip cream's. Although smooth, the almost whipped/butter cream consistency can be patchy and not flattering on dry lips. Definitely exfoliate!


I loved the formula of this one! Super smooth, shiny, and the consistency has a bit of tack to it. They aren't sticky at all but they have a really nice feel to them. Super shiny but not greasy at all. It reminded me a lot of Urban Decay's Super Saturated High Gloss lip color

Other things to note:
Scent: Subtle minty scent
Packaging: Exactly like Revlon's Kissable balms- twist up tube, no sharpener
Lasting Power: These are not long lasting at all. I would say 2-3 hours if you aren't eating and drinking and much less than that if you are. They also will transfer so that's something to keep in mind.

Both finishes are very pigmented and there are great color choices from both lines. I have to say that I really love the lacquer line and prefer that over the matte line based on formula. I didn't see anything mentioned that these were limited edition, so I'm excited that these will most likely be permanent items!
