The Lip Revolution- A Makeup Revolution Review

Howdy y'all...

In Order Left to Right:

Today I am back with not only a beauty post (get me living up to that fashion/beauty blogger title) but a post I've been rather excited about. Now if you follow Superdrug on Twitter then you may have seen their tweets about a new bargain brand set to be sold in stores. This super reasonably priced brand would is called Makeup Revolution.  

Now Make-up Revolution haven't released much information yet about the brand (they only launched in March 2014) with it still being relatively new however given the products and the price range I would best compare them to  MUA or Makeup Academy which is also sold in Superdrug, and as you may know a favourite brand of mine.

Makeup Revolutions prices range from £1 lipsticks (such as the ones I'm going to review today) to £3 eyeshadow palettes and £4 mixable foundations available in 16 versatile shades.

If you've been here a while then you will know that I am a girl that cannot deny a bargain lipstick nor a purple lipstick for that fact so when I saw the ultra bright & ultra vampy collections of £1 lipsticks on the site I just HAD to make a purchase. Obviously this was justifiable as even though I have no money this was all in the name of blogger investigation!

And while we're on that subject can I just say that I would recommend waiting until the product hit stores if you can to feel the full bargain purchase affect of them all as I paid around £3 for P&P (that could have been another 3 lipsticks in store) however if you fancy blowing the boat out a little more then old cheapo skintpants here then Makeup Revolution are currently doing free shipping if you spend over £20 on their Facebook Page.

Now on to the actual review. So I was pretty impressed with these products overall I mean it is a £1 lipstick after all can you really complain. Also most of the lipstick I found to be build able and nourishing when applied, all that is but the shade 'Fusion' a dark red I just had to throw into my basket last minute even though it resembled 'Vamp' far too much to justify buying. Now this formula is matte and stiff to apply with hardly any colour pay off, I find this one quite similar to the MUA Matte lipsticks which also do this. Now I don't know if I just received a dodgy one as non of the others are like this however my others were from their collections with this being the only 'main line' lipstick so maybe it's a different formula. Also from what I've tried so far these lipsticks aren't going to last all day but the super creamy formula is super quick to touch up.

The only other minor issue I have is that the packaging is quite flimsy with the lids already seeming a little loose. I know, I know they're only £1 how brilliant can the packaging be, however on that note I have to compare them with my £1 MUA lipsticks which I've never had any packaging problems with. 

Overall though I would have to give these lipsticks a 3 1/2 out of 5 stars and I actually cannot wait to grab myself some more  Makeup Revolution products to share with you all. 

So that's it guys. I hope you enjoyed today's 'beauty' post. Let me know if you've tried any of the Makeup Revolutions product or leave me suggestions of what you'd like to see me review next in the comments below!

Also a little self promotion side note: I would love it (if you like it here) if you could take the time to vote for me in the Company Style Blogger Awards (click this link) under Personal Style Blog Newcomer. 

Until Next time
