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!
Which shade is your favourite?
