Hey there you beautiful readers, some of you may already know that I recently did not one but TWO Makeup Revolution hauls, which you can read about here and here.
In one of the hauls I bought 9 lipsticks and before you say anything…
Yes I NEEDED all 9!
L-R Top: Lady, Sweetheart, Divine, Dazzle.
L-R Bottom: Dare, Encore, Beloved, Bliss, Flashing.
Some of the textures are extremely glossy or creamy, where as some are more matte and waxy. The matte ones have brilliant staying power but can also feel a little drying on the lips. The colours I chose are the more mainstream shades, which I can use on clients for shoots or bridal. I am very tempted to buy some of the bolder colours in another haul.
I love how they are designed with the colour code on the lid! However, I have to say there is one major flaw, there is no code on the base. When doing makeup bookings I will remove all the lids and then use the colours the client likes the most. When packing up I will be rushed and I can imagine that putting the correct lids on the correct colours to be a little time-consuming. Also the lids are slightly tricky as they wont all stay on.
As I mentioned earlier a couple of the shades are very waxy in texture, this is a bit drying and have quite a strange feeling. However they last much longer so that’s a positive which I think outweighs the negative. I think if your lips are very dry the addition of a balm or a swipe of gloss would be necessary. The more glossy textures are really lovely to wear and they have an okay staying power. They all have a wonderful fresh coconut scent which makes me love them even more!
From L-R: Bliss, Divine, Sweetheart, Beloved, Encore, Flashing, Dazzle, Lady, Dare.
As you can see I bought a range of peaches and corals, pinks and a couple of reds. I wanted to show you what the colour transfer is like, so I used a piece of white paper to blot the colours. I really like the range of shades I bought but I think I need more nudes.
The photo on the left is with natural light, and the photo on the right with flash. Can you see how the shimmer in Encore shows under the flash. It was really hard to pick up on camera. You can also see how the matte colours really didn’t want to come off from my lips, where as the glossy ones are very easy to smudge and transfer.
The price I paid was 1 pound each, which is brilliant value and I think I will get a lot of use from them. For the price I really can’t complain and the quality is pretty good, I have been wearing “Lady” most of today and I got some really nice compliments, it also matched perfectly with one of my GOSH lipliners.
How soon untill I can buy more? I think I am becoming addicted.
The colours are very close to the ones on the photos from the site, so you don’t have to worry about shades not being how you expected them to look (one of my biggest worries when shopping online).
Top L-R: Divine, Beloved, Dare, Bliss, Dazzle.
Bottom L-R: Lady, Sweetheart, Encore, Flashing.
I saw some photos of the blusher palettes and they are soo on my wishlist. I am really impressed by this brand. They are cheap and quality for the price is excellent. I hope to write-up some more post’s soon on some of the other Makeup Revolution products I bought… Lets just say I am IN LOVE with one particular highlighter.
