Revlon Shameless ColorBurst Matte Balm review

This is one review I’m definitely excited about. It’s a long time coming but I didn’t have a complete set of what I needed, that’s why it’s taken so long. But it’s here now!

This week went by so fast and it was Thursday before I realized I hadn’t blogged this week. My apologies 😩. Let’s go!


I got this on Christmas day 2015 from the westhills mall. I was there with my mum and little brother and I was doing a spot of window shopping when I noticed it and I HAD to have it, and I did !

Product description: Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm offers velvety color with balm-like moisture. Infused with a Triple Butter Complex of Shea, Mango and Coconut Butter. This retractable chubby crayon requires no sharpener.

Shameless is a beautiful dark purple with a matte finish that comes in a corresponding matte purple tube. Even though it’s matte, it’s not in the least drying. It is a velvety matte that is a dream to apply.

There are 9 other colours in the ColorBurst Matte line and ten Laquer balms.


The name of the product is under the tube along with a french name. I don’t know if it’s a direct translation, but Desinvolte sounds mighty sexy to me!

I’ve seen other reviews that say that shameless applies patchy but I experienced none of that. It’s not as dark as I hope it would be but this is most likely due to my natural lip colour.

It can be layered on to darken the colour a bit but then it tends to feel a bit heavy when it’s layered too much so blot then apply another layer to prevent that heaviness.

There’s full opacity in one swipe and it has a cooling sensation that I love so much! It feels so soothing to me. If you’re not a fan of smells, don’t worry, it goes away soon.

It lasts and lasts, and once it sets, it’s almost transfer – proof.


One swipe of shameless. It’s intensely pigmented, as is obvious in the picture.


You get 0.095oz/2.7g of product, which is enough to last a while. Oh and did I mention there’s no sharpening required? Just twist the silver bottom for more product!

I definitely recommend this, and I have my eye on Standout and Sultry.


I’m wearing shameless in this picture (I was supposed to be taking my brother to school but we had a mini photoshoot first ☺)

Unlike in the US, this isn’t so affordable. I got this for 43 cedis (don’t tell my mum how much it costs) at Foschini in the westhills mall. It’s pretty steep but you need to get it now!

Tried this? Loved this? Hated it? Share!

Watch this space for my first giveaway coming soon!

Love and hugs,

Beverly xx
