Review: Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Shameless

It. Has. Happened.

I got my purple-loving paws on a tube of Shameless!

I bought one online, and someone gifted me a second tube. How lucky am I?

Not lucky enough to get out of writing this paper on U.S foreign policy, but at least my lips are bright purple!







It’s a twist up pencil. No sharpener needed.

The color is matte purple with berry tones. It’s more berry than actual red.



In sunlight:




It’s not exactly Barney purple. Who invited that dude? Not I!

The application was quite smooth. It wasn’t drying at all. That’s an accomplishment for a matte lip product! I also didn’t have to apply loads of product on to see color on my lips.




It’s a little more berry in person. I’ll be rocking this for sure. Most purple lipsticks I’ve tried are too blue on me. This one is just right.
My one complaint is that it doesn’t last terribly long. I get maybe 3 hours of wear time. If I eat or drink anything, it fades even faster.

Pros: GORGEOUS color, easy and convenient packaging, smooth texture, not drying, fits nicely in your bag.
Cons: Does not last very long when applied.

Grade: A-

  1. That is a bold shade you got there! But you seem to wear it well and with confidence ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Shameless seems to be THE color. Perfect purple.

    I generally love the Revlon matte balm formula. In fact, I have this very same shade but I don’t get to wear it often. Such a beautiful purple that’s not too over the top! ๐Ÿ˜€
