Hello everybody, apologies for the lack of posts. A mixture between Ramadan lathargic-ness and feeling very deflated by the ongoing genocide in Palestine really hasn’t inspired me to blog. Anyway more on that in the update post.
Makeup Revolution is the new MUA brand of the internet. Its been raved about by so many beauty bloggers, around a month ago I couldn’t resist picking a few bits up myself! Instead of doing a haul, I’m just going to be posting reviews as and when I’m ready. I will say though that I’m not super happy with my swatches, and will try and rustle something up on the instagram to show you clearer swatches later on!
So starting with the packaging, you get what you pay for - you’re spending £1 so expect a lippie that could open in your bag, and isn’t the most sturdiest. They do the job however and for the price I really can’t complain. They do look very similar to MUA’s lipsticks, BUT I don’t think you can open the transparent part on the lid (please let me know if you can I’ve been trying so hard haha.) I do like the rose gold font however! It shows that the brand is on trend ^_^
The One- The palest colour lipstick in my whole collection, this will definitely give anyone with a warm skin-tone an ill look, however it is perfect for lightening-up any shade so I will be getting my moneys worth from this one! The texture is soft, and pretty pigmented, although it does have the tendency to sit in the fine lines on my lips, so again used alone this wouldn’t be the most flattering shade!
Treat - My favourite of the bunch! This is a gorgeous my lips but better shade MIXED with a touch of brown. Upon first application I instantly thought of the famous Kylie Jenner look just not matte! On reflection i wouldn’t say that this is the PERFECT shade if you’re going for her exact look, but the touch of brown adds a classy 90’s edge to any look and I honestly have had nothing else on my lips since I bought it! The formula again is fabulous, very moisturising and after 2 hours its still there as more of a stain which I quite like too! This is the only shade that I will be repurchasing in the future :)
Devine - The only matte lipstick I picked up, and I’m glad I didn’t venture into other shades. The formula is the standard drugstore matte type, a little difficult to apply and you do have to tug on the lips. The colour is quite a bright/loud coral and not as similar to the one in the bottom of the packaging! But annoyances aside this is a ok matte lippie, one I’ll probably try and mix with another shade to subdue it a little, but still wearable..just about.
Chic - This one I was the least prepared for because it has bit of glitter in it! NEVER something I go for ever (I mean maybe for a fancy dress?!) I prefer glitter on my eyelids for a special occasion, and so I wasn’t massively impressed with Chic. Having said that they aren’t as noticeable on the lips, and the colour itself is a nice neutral pink, but if you were having a conversation with someone face to face they probably WOULD notice the specs of glitter...at least the formula is fab!
So all in all fairly hit and miss I would say! But for £1 a lipstick, I have enjoyed my first introduction to Makeup Revolution’s lipstick selection, and if you head on over to their website you’ll discover they have an amazzzzzing range of colours to choose from! (Even blues and yellows!)
Have you tried any of these Lipsticks? Any shades you would recommend?
Thanks for reading!
