Just a warning to you all that this post is extremely photo heavy! I got a bit over excited! The other day I ordered a few (a few means 7) lipsticks from Makeup Revolution, all for just £1 each. Bargain, bargain, bargain alert.
First things first, I'm sure you're thinking "well, these look a lot like another budget makeup brand...what's up with that?" and you would be correct. It's hard not to draw parallels with MUA, not just in how they look but in fantastic quality. Each of the lipsticks are glossy, apply beautifully and they have that nice vanilla-y smell that sort of reminds me of MAC lipsticks but not as strong, it is the same sort of formula that MUA use in their lipsticks although I do think I prefer Makeup Revolutions formula better, it seems to me that the colours are a lot stronger. All of them are extremely moisturising on the lips and you can tell that they are of high quality. Another amazing thing about these lipsticks is that they last for such a long time once applied. I wore the nude coloured one all day yesterday without once having to reapply. I was seriously amazed!
Now to each individual lipstick:
Dusky is a stunning, shimmery pink colour that looks so pretty on my pale skin. I think that this is the perfect colour for Summer.
Reckless is a very dark, almost glittery red. It really packs a punch on the lips, great for those days when you're feeling dark and dangerous. I adore this shade, it's definitely my favourite of the bunch.
Crime is one of two lipsticks I bought from the Scandalous range. It's a very bright fuchsia colour with a purple undertone.
Bliss, another one of my favourites! It's such a gorgeous pinky nude colour. Perfect for casual days when you just need a slight pop of colour on your lips.
Vice is the second lipstick I ordered from the Scandalous range. It's a very bright orange colour that reminds me a little of MAC's Morange (only less pigmented).
Nude does what it says on the tin. It's a very pretty nude shade that I feel could be worn nicely with any skin tone. Such a pretty shade.
Divine is last but not least. This is a gorgeous nude-pink colour.
What do you think of these lipsticks then? Have you ever tried anything from Makeup Revolution? If not I urge that you do because for the price they are fantastic. You can get them at Superdrug or online here.
