So whilst out and about in town I saw these new lip kits by makeup revolution for only £6 in Superdrug and I knew I had to review one for you guys!
I wanted to try out one of their metallic lip kits as I’ve never gelled very well with the metallic lip trend. It never seems to work for me so I wanted to try this one on for size. I chose the colour We Rule which is a rose gold shade.
Each kit comes with a liquid lipstick and a lip pencil.
When swatched on the back of the hand both products are gorgeous and very pigmented.
However, I wasn’t blown away by these products on the lips.
The lip liner is crumbly, I’m already quite far down the nib and I only bought it today. Its so soft it just tends to break off. It also applies quite greasy and doesn’t really cling to the liquid lipstick the way a liner probably should.
The liquid lipstick itself I quickly discovered is not my colour at all! However, I think this shade could work well on deeper skin tones. Because it wasn’t working for me on its own I decided to try a few other applications.
First off I tried it as a lip topper on my NYX soft matte lip cream in the shade San Paulo. The result was underwhelming. The lipstick acts more like a gloss and remains quite sticky and greasy which results in strings of products between the lips when you open them.
So I attempted to use the liquid lipstick on top of a layer of the NYX Wonder Pencil in light to see if this had any affect. Aside from making the colour even lighter it didn’t help.
So for the sake of it I then tried it over a matte Smashbox be legendary lipstick in the shade Screen Queen, to see how it worked over a darker colour. Again, to me it just looked like a gloss and didn’t really add anything.
In conclusion then guys, I still don’t like metallic lipsticks very much. These are no different. I would however be interested in trying one of their Makeup Revolution matte lip kits to see if they are any good because the pigmentation of this product was fine, it just didn’t work for me.
Have you tried the metallic lip kits? What do you think of this trend in general? Do you like my messy af lip photos? Let me know!
