Go Buy Now: Revlon's ColorBurst Matte Balm
Lately I've been having a Goldilocks moment when it comes to what I'm wearing on my lips. Glosses seem too juvenile, sticky, and tacky. Lip stains are too drying for this time of year. Lipsticks are usually my go-to, but they take so much effort—lip liner and blotting. So when I randomly picked up one of Revlon's new Colorburst Matte Balms ($9), I wasn't expecting to fall in love—but I did.
The pencil is awesome in every way. It's lightweight and moisturizing, so it goes on like a balm, but it's highly pigmented and gives you the kind of color that you get from a proper lipstick. It's velvety and matte—the most sophisticated finish, in my opinion—and the chubby pencil is super easy to apply. Oh and the best part: it has a minty scent, which makes my mouth feel fresh and clean. Basically, it's perfect. My color of choice is Shewy—a hot pink—but all ten of the colors rule. Buy one today: I promise you that you, too, will think it's just right.
