Makeup Revolution Retro Luxe Lip Kits // Review.

Hello darlings

As usual i'm sorry for my absence i still don't have wifi in my new house (booo!) but for the next week i'm cat/house sitting for my friend who has gone to Canada so i have her wifi woo! So hopefully i can get a few posts up as i'm bursting with motivation! Last week i popped into Superdrug and i pick up one of the much talked about Makeup Revolution Lip Kits. I love matte liquid lipsticks so i was so exited to try a new one and i'm a massive fan of Makeup Revolution so i had high hopes. 
 I really like the packaging, i think it looks really smart and professional. Looks more expensive than drugstore, i really like when products have outer packing it looks so much better and you want to pick them up and collect them all. Opening the box inside is a lip liner and liquid lipstick similar to the Kylie Jenner lip kits. Opening up the tube there wasn't really any scent which is good. 
The pigmentation of the liquid lipstick is fantastic its thick and opaque after one applicator. Its didn't apply patchy which can be an issue for these type of products. The liner was creamy and glided on to the lips really well, so far so good! I choose the colour reign as it looked like the perfect nude, i don't think my pictures are the best. Its much paler than i thought, although its not the worst nude (not concealer lips!) it doesn't match my skin tone. the liner is a lot pinker than the liquid lipstick, i have to say i do prefer the colour of the liquid lipstick more than the liner pencil. I really want to try Echelon which is more of a brownish nude and more my skin of tone.
The longevity was really good but came at the cost of comfort, GOD my lips were dry after  only an hour or so. At first it felt really good, it didn't sink into the lines in my lips or feel uncomfortable. Its good to put on to take a picture but to wear for work or uni its not the best. I'm so disappointed Makeup Revolution. 

I'd love to know have you tried any of these lip kits?
What are your thoughts? Am i the only one who didn't get on with them?

  1. I was disappointed with these lip kits too! I picked up Echelon and the dark purple shade.. The purple lipliner was way lighter than the liquid lipstick which was annoying.. I found mine were sticky on the lips.. I've heard they redid the formulation so I guess they are drying now

  2. Ah - fabulous and honest review babe, as I've heard a lot of negative things about these. I've heard that the shades on the website are completely different to the real thing and that the formula really isn't great and sticks! Better stick to Kylie haha! x
    Lots of love,

  7. That's what mainly puts me off liquid lipsticks, my lips are dry at the best of times! It's a shame it was so disappointing, or it could have been a good affordable alternative :) xx
