These badboys dont launch in the UK until Jaunary 22nd 2014 but as promised in my sneak peek post I've been swatching them up for you guys to get you in the mood. I didn't dislike the Just Bitten Kissable Stains but they just werent my cup of tea. I prefer matte lips and a much bolder shade range, and what do Revlon go and do... bring out 10 new matte shades.

All the Revlon ColorBurst Crayon Matte Balm's have a creamy matte texture. I didn't find them particularly drying on the lips and they are a lot less clingy on the lips compared to other matte lipsticks. I found the finish to be quite satin like, similar to the Topshop Lipsticks or the Kate Moss Rimmel Lipsticks.The colour pay off is really good, opaque in one swipe for the most part. All of the Revlon ColorBurst Crayon's contain a "Triple Butter Complex" of Shea, Mango and Coconut Butter and have a light peppermint fragrance. Twist up crayon style packaging means you don't waste product and there is no need for a sharpener. My personal favourites from this range are Shameless (shocker I know, but I was instantly drawn to it!), Complex (even though the formula is a bit patchy) and Striking. I found the formula was much better on the darker colours than the lighter as they applied a little more evenly. With all matte formulas you should prep your lips with a scrub and before applying, but the moisturising complex means you don't need to prep with a lip balm.

Shade Descriptions:
Revlon ColorBurst Crayon Matte Balm in Complex: A peachy brown nude
Revlon ColorBurst Crayon Matte Balm in Shameless: A deep dark true purple
Revlon ColorBurst Crayon Matte Balm in Standout: A dark berry red
Revlon ColorBurst Crayon Matte Balm in Elusive: A blue toned light pink
Revlon ColorBurst Crayon Matte Balm in Audacious: A orange coral red
Revlon ColorBurst Crayon Matte Balm in Sultry: A brown plum
Revlon ColorBurst Crayon Matte Balm in Unapologetic: A super pinky red
Revlon ColorBurst Crayon Matte Balm in Mischievous: A punchy light orange
Revlon ColorBurst Crayon Matte Balm in Striking: A neutral cherry red
Revlon ColorBurst Crayon Matte Balm in Showy: A blue based bright pink

I can see these going down really well in the beauty blogging world once they launch officially. I think they are something a bit special. It's nice to see more matte finish lipsticks available on the UK highstreet too, especially in such a wide shade range. It covers everything from deep dark purples to a nude. Definitely something worth looking forward to for the new year!

  22. I like the *Striking* shade. What's interesting about this post is your lips almost seem to change shape and size depending on the colour your wearing....the right shade does make a difference girls!! ;)

  26. I'm super excited for these! I really like the Kissable Balm Stains, but I think I'm going to like these even more as I much prefer matte lips too. They probably won't be released in Australia until ages though. :( I'm really liking the look of Complex. Looks like a really lovely nude!

  41. even though i'm yet to try any of the revlon lip crayons and i'm not the biggest fan of matte lip colours, i'm really drawn to these. there's such an extensive and gorgeous colour range that i really do need to try a couple. they all seem so bright and opaque and the consistency/formula sounds lovely! i'll probably only end up going for the nudes and the reds but i like that there's the option of a purple shade which does actually look really interesting and probably something i'd try nearer to christmas and the party season so it's a shame they don't launch until the new year! i absolutely love these and i can't wait to try them though! :) X
