Makeup Revolution Lipsticks

Makeup Revolution is aptly named. They have really shaken up the beauty community with budget products and some pretty obvious dupes, more on that another day. This UK online store had me at "budget prices".

When I made a decent sized order with Makeup Revolution, I included some lipsticks. Now, I've been on a red lipstick craze of late, so if you're not keen on this colour, I apologize because this post will be very disappointing for you...


Slick black tubes, with a helpful addition of the lipstick in clear plastic on the bottom. (can't seem to get into it, though)









Atomic Ruby. The "Atomic" range is brighter and more intense in colour.







 A little pink intermission with Dazzle













Rebel With A Cause. I can't compare, but this shade is said to be a dupe of MAC Rebel.

These lipsticks are creamy and feel nice on the lips. With the exception of "Rebel With A Cause", (I did find it applied a little patchy) the lipsticks applied beautifully. About Aus $3, I'd say a great deal!



 "Now, why did she get 2 glosses the same?" Well, one is a matte :)






The Intense Lip Lacquer has a lovely glossy finish, easy to apply with the doe foot wand. Also with the same packaging is the Velvet Lip Lacquer. This one is my fave! It dries to a velvety matte finish. It does feel slightly dry on the lips, but I don't find it uncomfortable. Obviously, it will last a lot longer than the gloss.

Well, that comes to the end of this post. You are probably all "red-ed" out by now!

What's your colour obsession at the moment?

  1. That definitely looks matte on the lips, not so much the swatch. I love the look of those lippies! Very smooth and pretty.

    1. I think what happened with the swatch is I had not left it to "dry" before taking the photo. It is really nice, I'm liking mattes above glosses lately :)

  4. I really want to make a Makeup Revollution order soon! These lipsticks look really nice and pigmented, and so affordable :)
    The salvation intense Lip Lacquer "A Love Like That" was my favourite pick. It looks great on you.

    1. Thank you, Di. The down side is not being able to see them before you buy, but at that price point it's really worth taking a chance :)

  6. They seem really nice (especially considering the price) and look great on you. I was never really that interested in getting MUR products but after seeing those I may give them a go.
