Random parcels from Makeup Revolution containing some of their latest products always make my day. It’s been quite a whilst since I reviewed anything from their lip collection so I was incredibly excited to receive the new Lip Lavas! As I’ve previously mentioned, I don’t know too much about high end makeup, but as with most of Makeup Revolution’s collection, these are also dupes. If you’ve ever wanted to try the Too Face Melted lipsticks then you may want to give these a go first. At just £2.99 apparently they work exactly the same, but I can’t vouch for that, instead, I can just tell you what they’re actually like.
The pigments of the Makeup Revolution Lip Lavas are incredible, I would never expect a £3 liquid lipstick to be so bright and colourful. Unfortunately for me the texture was a little too sticky and glossy, as I much prefer my matte lips. The colours leak easily and can easily smudged if you aren’t too careful and put too much on. The liquid lipsticks act as a stain so even when a little is applied, the colour still lasts pretty well and they are incredibly build-able if you want a really strong, bold, glossy lip.
I was really surprised by the colours as from their tubes as they were a little different and I really didn’t expect to like certain shades. Tremor’s tube looked like it was going to be a dark pink and I thought it would be the perfect nude for me, but in reality, it was a very pale and bright pink, which didn’t really suit my complexion and hair at all. I imagine on somebody blonde this would look pretty incredible though.
I never thought I would put on a bright orange lipstick like Unleash and actually like it, but here I am. I felt like a mermaid with this bright orange on and I definitely think I’m going to attempt to rock it in Summer.
Shockwave was a colour that I thought I would love, but it was just too pink and not enough purple for my complexion. Again for blondes, this will look amazing or bold brunettes of course.
Firestorm makes me want to scream of happiness, it’s just so beautiful, the perfect red. If this came in a matte colour that didn’t move all day, I would wear it constantly. It’s just too sticky, but for pictures or fun days inside (as wind will be an enemy) it’s perfect.
Forgiven is the colour that I really didn’t expect to like or suit me, but I found it working really well as a subtle daytime look. It just makes me feel pretty!
You can even get the Full 5 Lip Lava Collection for the price of 4 at only £11.96! What do you think to the new Lip Lavas?
*Makeup Revolution sent these for review and now I wear their makeup every single day! PS – Made an effort with my pictures and now every little hair on my face has shown, I’m not bothered, so neither should you be.
