Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm

Hey Beauts! I'm going to be reviewing Revlon's new release to the UK - Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balm.
A while ago, Revlon brought out a lip tint in the shape of a chubby crayon. This was the 'Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain' that took the beauty world by storm. I only have one of these but I can say that it is quite sheer and sticky although it does last a while. Whereas these new balms are matte as it says in the name so they aren't sticky and they are also a balm! This means it has all the benefits of a long wearing lipstick with the added benefits of moisturizing and easy application with the chubby stick shape. 

The product comes in a plastic casing with a silver base to turn for more product. It leaves a buttery feel on your lips and doesn't feel thick or cakey. They all have a light peppermint smell and as I don't usually like scented lipsticks, I was quite skeptic. But seeing as though everyone in the USA had been raving about these I thought I might as well give them a try. Luckily the scent is very subtle and if it hadn't been pointed out to me I honestly wouldn't have noticed! The peppermint in the lipstick formula gives a slight plump to the lips as with all lip products that contain this. Unfortunately, I only have 3 shades, though I will be buying more! They are all quite similar in colour. I own the shades 205 - Elusive, 240 - Striking and 250 - Standout.

 From top to bottom the shades are: 250 - Standout, 240 - Striking and 205 - Elusive.

Who Am I?

Hi guys!
So I saw my friend's blog the other day and thought it would be a really cool way to share my thoughts and queries with everyone.
I will mostly be talking about all aspects of beauty though there may be some other randoms in here...
I am a 16 year old girl so I'm basically the cliche for all bloggers these days.
I love beauty, acting, singing, listening to music and watching TV. Yet another stereotype I'm following up on!
I'm not that much of an expert on makeup YET but I'd like to do my best in teaching you all tricks, giving you reviews etc.
I hope you enjoy and I can't wait to start blogging!
