MAKEUP REVOLUTION LIPSTICKS - RECKLESS & FUSION
L to R - Reckless, Fusion
Let me start with the packaging, as you can see its nothing too fancy and comes in a plastic tube package. I mean you did get them for £1 so you cant expect an expensive looking packaging. These shades were the two that caught my eye when I was browsing the Superdrug website. Lets get back to checking out them in more details.
Makeup Revolution Reckless Lipstick
Reckless is a bright red creamy lipstick. The colour payoff is amazing and actually quite moisturizing on the lips. The best part was that the lipstick didn't dry my lips out. The shades is actually quite a lovely red and I quite like it. I usually steer away from lipsticks that are that bright specially when it comes to red lipsticks, it can be quite over powering for my skin tone.
Makeup revolution Fusion Lipstick
Fusion is supposed to be a deep plum coloured lipstick but as you can see from the pictures and swatches its a very dull and muted shade. The lipstick felt moisturizing on the lips and didn't dry them out but the colour payoff is really bad, it looked more like a tinted lip balm. The lipstick just kind of gave the lips a slight tint of colour.
The Makeup Revolution Amazing lipstick collection has 20 different shades and some are supposed to me matte and some are creamy. It claims to have amazing colour payoff but I don't think that most lipsticks are true to this claim. Reckless is a lovely shade and has good colour payoff but Fusion on the other hand doesn't have good colour payoff and doesn't really look like a plum shade. Wear time I would say is around 3-4 hours for me and I have to say that I did notice that significant bleeding of the lipstick around the corners of my lips but if I used a lip liner as a base then the lipsticks stayed put and lasted a bit longer, close to about 5 hours.
However, overall for the £1 your paying I think its a pretty darn good and with the help of a lip liner it will last longer, stay put. You will have to expect some of the lipsticks like Fusion to be not up to standard and lack colour payoff. A bit disappointed with my experience but then again I don't feel guilty because I didn't pay a lot. I doubt that I will be getting any from this brand but I am intrigued to try their eye shadow palettes.
