Cruelty Free Beauty: Makeup Revolution Lip Lacquers

Cruelty Free Makeup Revolution Lip Lacquers Review

Makeup Revolution are a brand I've used regularly and religiously since before deciding to switch out to cruelty-free cosmetics. Not only are their products considerably cheaper than most other brands with eye shadow palettes sitting at £4 and lipsticks as little as a £1, but the products I've used from their range so far, predominately eye shadows, bronzers & blushers, have impressed me.

Liquid lipsticks are EVERYWHERE at the minute, and I'm a newbie to the whole game. However, when browsing through Superdrug I noticed Makeup Revolution were serving up their contribution to the liquid lipstick game at only £3 a pop. It seemed like the perfect opportunity to try out a liquid lippie, so I walked away with two in my basket.

The pigmentation on this lip lacquer is insane and stands out a mile off! Liquid lipsticks really take the grain when it comes to extravagant, exciting colours and Velvet Depravity is the most vibrant of the collection in a cool, purple tone. I absolutely adore this shade and found it applied evenly. I haven't yet put it through the eating test (I'll update this post as soon as I have), but it seemed to last a decent amount of time considering it was only £3.

Unfortunately and strangely, I found the Rebel shade difficult to apply evenly as you can see from the above photo. As well as drying into a patchy mess, it started to flake away almost instantly and was pretty much gone within thirty minutes. It's also really uncomfortable on the lips and I found myself pursing them quite a lot, which is probably the reason as to why it flaked away so soon.

After the first application, I did reapply the lacquer with a little more success. Patience is key when applying this lip lacquer in order to achieve an even finish. However, I still found it a little uncomfortable and flaky on the lips, so I won't be re-purchasing it.

Other people seem to love these lip lacquers, but unfortunately they just don't 'do it' for me.

Have you tried Make Up Revolutions lip lacquers?
