Last week I decided to pop into Superdrug and ended up “accidentally” buying some new makeup to try, including these gorgeous Makeup Revolution Salvation Velvet Lip Lacquers.
Honestly, these were just a complete impulse buy and I haven’t heard anything about these lipsticks before. I saw the pretty colours and amazing price (£3!!!!) and couldn’t help myself. Overall, the colours in this range are absolutely gorgeous but I’ve gotten some very mixed results with the 3 different shades I picked up.
Keep Crying For You
I love this colour! I don’t usually wear bright colours at all and I’m definitely more of a nude lip gal than a pink lip gal – but I have to say this is beautiful! I feel like it’s the perfect shade for going into the warmer months because it’s just so light and bright. I love wearing this with minimal makeup because I feel like it really brightens my whole face and I don’t need much else on my face. It’s super easy and precise to apply and just one coat lasts for so long. I’m so happy I picked this up!!
Velvet Black Heart
This is probably my favourite out of the three. It’s so easy to apply, lasts for ages and is such a gorgeous colour. I also love how white it makes my teeth look and it just makes me feel so confident when I wear it. As I said, I’m usually a nude lip kinda gal, but I love seeing darker lip colours on other people – I just don’t usually have the confidence to wear them myself, so I have surprised myself with this one! I’m not sure if it’s just because I have really pale skin or if it’s just the amazing pigmentation but this looks super dark on me and it shows up more black than purple, but I definitely love wearing it. I think this would be a really good shade for going out because it is just so dramatic and beautiful, although I have worn it during the day as well with a little cat eye! This has definitely convinced me to try other darker lip colours and I am so sure this will be in my makeup collection for a really long time!
This is the shade I was most excited to try because of how gorgeous it looks, but it’s the one I’m most disappointed in! I find it really hard to apply – it just goes on really patchy for me and does not stay in place at all. I’m so disappointed with this one because colour-wise it is definitely more ‘me’ than the other two, but I just don’t enjoy wearing it. I honestly haven’t reached for it since testing it out when I first got it, because I just don’t feel like it’s worth the mess and the hassle! Since the other two are so pigmented and long-lasting, I feel like I’ve maybe just picked up a dodgy lipstick so I may have to repurchase this shade and hope I can find one with a better formulation.
