Having gone cruelty free this year, I’ve been looking for some different products to use whilst trying to avoid spending a fortune replacing my old make up!
Makeup Revolution is a brand that’s very popular in the blogging community because they always bring out good dupes of higher-end make up, so I was having a nosy at their eye shadow palettes when I came across this lipstick for £1!
It had really good reviews, 25 of them, with an average of over 4/5 so I decided to give one a try – here’s my review:
Makeup Revolution ‘Amazing Lipstick’
The Claim: “… creamy, long lasting lipstick with high colour payoff”
Comes in 20 shades…
The shade I bought was ‘The One’..
I would describe the colour as a peachy nude…
The lipstick felt soft, really creamy and has no taste or smell which is great because I hate it when lipsticks are perfumed!
The formula actually reminds me of one I used from Estee Lauder a few years ago (minus the horrible smell).
I initially put it straight onto my lips but it looked a tiny bit streaky and was gathering in the lines of my lips, so I took it off and put some foundation on as a base, which I then blotted and applied the lipstick again.
That made it smoother and more even – but it did make the colour slightly lighter and as I’m so fair it made the shade a little too light for me. I think I looked washed out:
The colour stayed on really well after eating lunch:
….. but later I had a cup of coffee and an apple, then most of it had worn off…. but does it bother me to reapply it once a day? No not really.
Right lipstick formulation, wrong colour for me!
I’m really impressed with the feel, look and performance of it, especially considering it’s just £1 so I would definitely buy another shade and the colour I did choose would look beautiful on most skin tones, I’m just too pale!
There’s a lovely hot pink and rich red I fancy trying so will definitely be making some more purchases from this budget brand.
If you fancy having a look at the other shades you can find them here and here …. they also do a rose gold, more luxurious collection for £3 and lip glosses too (which are very ‘back on trend’ for 2018) that are also £1.
