Revlon Matte Balms Review – Showy, Stand Out and Elusive

The most anticipated release of 2014 so far, had to be these Revlon Matte Balms. When I first read about them at the end of last year, I knew that they were going to be a huge hit amongst the blogging world and quite honestly, they’ve definitely lived up to it’s hype. I’m going to make a big statement here and say, they’re the best matte lip products I have ever tried. The application is so smooth, which, mostly of the times, is quite hard to get with matte lip products, because they’re either too dry or too creamy, but these are just absolutely spot on.

I picked up three shades, a vibrant pink named Showy, a cherry red titled Stand Out and a peach pink called Elusive

Showy – a vibrant pink with blue undertones.

Stand Out – a cherry red, with a slight orange hue.

Elusive – a muted peach pink.

There are ten shades in the range, priced at £7.99 each and available at all leading drugstores and online. Have you tried out any of the matte balms? Which one is your favourite?

    I love standout, it's gorgeous. I am yet to try any of these (!!), but they are on my wishlist, especially as they're on 3 for 2 at Boots.

    I've been wanting Elusive for a while now. It looks lovely on you! x

    I have Elusive. I love it, naturally. It's so different to anything I've owned before and I had a pretty hard time trying to describe the shade. I said a pinky coral but your description is bang on! x
