Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Shameless Swatches

It’s no secret that I love a good dark bold lip. The burgundy, the plumy, the berry – I don’t discriminate and love them all. As of recently, I added a new shade to my ‘vampy lippy’ list and I really cannot get enough of it. Purple. Yes, as weird as it may seem to some (my mum and the boy included), I’ve actually fallen head over heels in love with gracing my lips with the shade. It’s bold, it’s different and could look rather classy if paired with the right cheek and eye makeup. The star of my purple lipstick collection is undoubtedly the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Shameless (here). It boosts my confidence massively and adding it to my most-cherished lippies was a no-brainer.

Shameless is one of those shades that you just slap on and either instantly fall in love with or you just take off immediately and never even go close to ever again. It looks scary, and it probably is, but for someone like me who adores to experiment with lip colors it is honestly perfect. Shameless must be the most unique lippy in my collection and I love everything about its medium purple shade and the beautiful fuchsia undertones. It is a hybrid between vampy and feminine and I love how edgy, yet sophisticated it makes me look. And how does it make me feel? Empowered. That’s a nice word. Also, the stunning satin-y matte finish tickles my fancy and I love the way it tints the lips after the first layer has rubbed off. Gorgeous!!

Shameless has a lovely velvety texture and I love how lightweight it feels on the lips. It’s matte but creamy to apply and even though I know it might be a deal breaker for some of you – I am actually in love with the peppermint scent. You need two thin layers to get the color fully opaque and once it’s settles it hangs around for ages. I even managed to chomp my way through a burger once and it did not move. Brilliant. Everything sounding rather fab so far but there are a few bugbears I need to mention. I find that Shameless tends to cling into dry patches and fine lines, so make sure you give your lips a good scrub and prep them with a balm. Also, after about the second hour mark it starts to dry out the lips slightly, which is to be expected from a matte lipstick and it’s honestly not that bad, so fear not! So my final verdict? If you fancy dipping your toe into the purple lipstick pool, look no further and go get involved with Shameless – it is awesome and will turn heads, that’s for sure!

Have you tried Shameless? Would you wear a purple lipstick or is it too bold of a color for you?

Lots of love,

  11. I did a review on this last year and am still in love with this lippie! I absolutely love purple lips and this Revlon Matte balm in Shameless is definitely my top 5 purple lip products. The best part is how comfortable it is to wear and I like the minty smell and the color is definitely nice and bold! I love busting out the purple lips in the colder weather since it is different from the vampy reds.

  16. I'd love to be able to wear a colour like that but they really don't suit my super pale complexion! 'Captive' by MAC is proabably as purple as I can go :(
