Revolution is one of my favourite brands and I’m a self-confessed lipstick addict. Who knows why it look me so long to try some of their lipsticks?!
That’s right, I was browsing through the Superdrug website and suddenly thought to myself. Wait, why have I still not bought any Revolution lipsticks? I do absolutely love my MAC lipsticks, so admittedly I do buy less lipsticks from the high street than I did a few years ago. However, these are so affordable that I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to give them a whirl!
On the left (referring to the photo above) we have the Renaissance Lipstick in ‘Vow’. For only £4, I am seriously impressed with the quality and overall look of this packaging. It feels really sturdy and it’s giving me serious Charlotte Tilbury vibes!
On the right is the Rose Gold Lipstick in ‘Chauffer’. Again, I am loving the packaging. This one feels and looks a little less luxurious, however I still adore the rose gold.
I also like how you can see a sneak peek of the shade at the bottom of each of these lipsticks. If you were to have a variety of Revolution lipsticks in your makeup drawer, it would make finding the exact shade you want so much easier!
In terms of the shades, Vow is a warm medium nude brown. On my natural (very pale) skin tone, it’s a little too warm and doesn’t 100% suit me. However when paired with a more pink-toned nude lip liner, or when I’m wearing fake tan, it transforms into the most beautiful brown nude, which looks a little cooler and suits my skin tone a lot more.
It has a matte formula, yet still feels beautifully creamy and easy to apply. The shade is also very opaque, so it lasts for a good few hours on the lips.
Chauffer is a gorgeous neutral pink shade. To me, it does look a slightly darker and more of a reddy brown shade in the bullet, however on the lips it’s a gorgeous neutral nude pink. It’s really flattering actually, not too warm, not too cool and not too bright.
It has a creamy formula with a glossy finish, which I absolutely love for putting over a lip liner or just wearing alone when I want a more natural look. It’s also quite a buildable shade, you can apply one swipe for a wash of colour or build it up to achieve full pigmentation and gloss.
Due to its creamy formula, it doesn’t last as long as the matte however I have noticed that a bit of pigmentation stays even after some of the glossiness has worn off. This is also only £3, and you really can’t go wrong for the price.
I’m absolutely blown away by the quality of both these lipsticks, especially since both of them together cost me under a tenner – BARGAIN! I’ve been reaching for them frequently ever since I bought them, so I think we can call this a success!
