Makeup Revolution Rose Gold Lipsticks
Makeup Revolution is an inexpensive makeup brand that I have been lucky enough to work with since they started, about two years ago and I cannot rave about their products enough, especially their eyeshadow palettes which are my go to halloween staples and their lipsticks are also fantastic. I was very excited when this package arrived a couple of weeks ago with the new rose gold collection and you know me, I adore rose gold!

I have the full *Makeup Revolution Rose Gold Lipstick Collection (£3 each) which is definitely made with bloggers in mind as if there is one thing bloggers love it is rose gold and combine that with a lipstick and you're in the money - obviously I'm generalising but look at them *squeals*.

There are five shades in this collection and all but one are so gorgeous and I know I will get a lot of use out of them. Makeup Revolution lipstick formulas are so creamy, pigmented and comfortable on the lips and these are no different. They have a sheen but they aren't very glossy so they don't emphasise dryness which is a big plus for me!

The shade swatches from top to bottom as are follows - keep in mind that the swatches above are a bit brighter than in real life:

- Diamond Life: In the tube, this shade looks like a deep purple with red undertones but when swatched and applied to the lips, it looks a little brighter but not as bright as the swatch above *sorry*. It leaves a shade on the lips that looks like I have been eating lots of blackberries, I love it and it will be perfect for autumn/winter.

- Chauffeur: Now this is my kind of shade, it is a browny nude shade in the tube but on my lips it is more of a cool toned mauve shade that is close to my natural lip colour but less pink. I have been wearing this shade the most and it will be one that most will love!

- Girls Best Friend: This shade is not something I would ever reach for personally as it is an almost neon cool toned barbie pink that does not look right with my skintone. I won't get much use out of this one but that's just because the shade doesn't suit me at all.

- Red Carpet: I do love a good red lipstick but I don't wear them that often as I'm so conscious of it getting on my teeth or smudging but this one is so gorgeous. It is a classic red that I think will suit a lot of people - it isn't nearly as bright as the photo above shows.

- Private Members Club: It is such a shame that winter is almost at an end as this shade is the ultimate winter shade! It looks black in the tube but it is actually a gorgeous deep grape shade - it is very purple but not so dark that it looks black. I love it and surprisingly so does my mum!

Overall, the lipsticks are better than the other Makeup Revolution lipsticks I own as the packaging is more sturdy, the lipstick longevity is better *although not amazing* and the creaminess and comfort is very impressive. I adore the Red Carpet shade as it is so classic and it somehow brightens my complexion and I also love the Chauffeur shade as it a perfect 'my lips but better shade'. Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5.

Have you tried anything from Makeup Revolution? What do you think of this rose gold collection?

  1. I have a few MUR lipsticks and while I don't reach for them all that much, I do absolutely love them when I wear them. The packaging for these is perfect! I love the look of Diamond Life : ) xx

  2. They look waxy in the swatch, but since you gave them a 5 star review I might just have to try them myself. The packaging is just too darn cute

  5. These are so pretty! I totally get sucked into the whole rose gold thing and I don't even care - it's just so gorgeous! The lipstick shades look lovely too. I would wear all of them except maybe the bright pink, like you. x

  8. Love the packaging, very luxurious and in theme with what everyone is loving these days, rose gold. Not so keen on the shades though, Diamond Life is probably the only one I would wear x

  9. I would love to try Chauffeur - but I just feel that with my skin tone it wouldn't go and would look too light for my liking!
    Packaging is so pretty though.

    1. I think it would suit very pale skintones the most but I still think it would look good on darker skintones x

  11. The lipsticks look so pretty, but from your swatches, I am not too impressed. I feel like their formula doesn't improve at all.
