Makeup Revolution Lip Lava

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWhen these new lip products landed on my doorstep last week they were a complete surprise, I hadn’t heard anything about them but they bore quite the resemblance to the Too Faced Melted lip colours I already loved. I have fast become totally obsessed with these Lip Lavas and for £2.99 you ALL need to try them! I’m NOT a lip gloss fan AT ALL but the glossy sheen wears away to leave a matte colour that lasts all day, amazing when you consider the cost! I experienced a little bleeding with the bold red shade but that’s par for the course with a vibrant red, wherever it’s from.. lip liner would be advised.. the rest are just perfect. Excellent formula, so comfortable on the lips and long wearing, can’t ask for more. I generally like most of what Makeup Revolution launch (with a few notable exceptions) but I haven’t been so enamoured of something new for a while and regardless of cost these are just good. I only with they offered more colours!


For everyday Tremor is my pick but my favourite of the bunch has to be Shockwave.. not a colour I’d have picked up, a little ‘out there’ for me but one that’s made me reconsider a purple lip, for sure! I also wouldn’t have chosen Unleash.. very orange as peachy/corals go but I love it and I think it actually suits me.. just goes to show you have to experiment! These Lip Lavas are already available online (and in select Superdrug stores) – here’s the link

    I love the makeup revolution brand, such affordable prices. My favourite products are the eye shadow and contouring palettes. Will also have to give these lip glosses a try, very pretty!

    Makeup revolution is a great brand but for some reason it really bugs me when a budget brand copies the packaging of a high end one. I love the fact they do similar products for cheaper its just the copycat packaging that winds me up. I wish they would come up with their own ideas and dont ride on the back of another companies success. Bar that these look amazing! And for £2.99 a total bargain!

    I must have them all!!!! Spending ban be damned. I am being a good girl and waiting till payday but I am literally chomping at the bit to get my hands on these and been lusting after them on the Makeup Rev Instagram page. I was also waiting for you to review them. Glad that they eventually mattify. I was worried they might just be another gloss. Getting the whole set, for sure. X

    These look amazing! I loved the second colour, can’t wait to pick some of these up! Also I really appreciate that you always do lip swatches and a picture of your whole face, it’s so helpful to be able to see it both close up and also how it works with your complexion.

    I recently did an order in the makeup revolution website but for some reason missed these. They look great I may need to do another cheeky order 😉

    These are beautiful. I love the consistency and the way they look on the lips . My favorite is the pink one and the plum colored one at the bottom
