My Take on the Product : 
Packaging : 
The packaging is really cute for the balm where the outer cover is same as the color of the lip balm. We need not sharpen this and the quantity is so much that it will come for months for sure. You just push the cap and the lip balm is there in a perfect shape for easy application.

Color :
This shade standout has got a medium red and not a deeper red. Its kind of pinkish red shade.

Fragrance :
It just has the mint flavor and its a refreshing fragrance.
Texture : 
The texture of this lip balm is so creamy and smooth. You can feel this while you apply it. You would not feel heavy on wearing this lip balm.
Finish : 
On applying one swatch you will feel you are done hence getting them right is so easy. The standout color is kind a bold and I applied a little here and there and used my fingers to glide it well. Yes it gives a super matte effect but see to that you don't apply a lot, if so it tends to show your lips so much bright. Its best with one swatch itself applying too much will not get you the look and especially in photographs you cannot get it right with too much of this.
Longevity :
It stays the same for 3 to 4 hours but if you have food or drink something then a little is gone and you have to reapply it.

Sensitiveness :
I have a very sensitive skin tone and this made my lips a little darker so you have to do some regime to your lips like applying honey and do not wear this so long.

Pros :

  • Excellent lasting power
  • Gives the matte effect as claimed 
  • Travel friendly package
  • Does not feel heavy at all
  • Blends easily 
  • you don't need a base to make it stay longer

Cons :

  • Fingers are necessary to glide it correct
  • Will not cover fine lines
  • Darken the lips if wearing long (I hope most of the lipstick has this problem)
  • Cost is too much for a lip balm
Availability : Online and in stores Buy Revlon Color Brust Matte Lip Balm, Unapologtic, 2.7g

F&M Rating : 4/5
Overall I recommend this lip balm for a perfect matte effect and for its different color shades.
