Makeup Revolution Review

Hello everyone, and happy Good Friday! :)

Over the past couple of weeks, I've been seeing loads of reviews pop up on products by Makeup Revolution, and all of them were positive. I'd personally never heard of them, but based on all the wonderful reviews, I decided to make a little online order and try a couple of things. Everything shown on the website is so well priced, and in the end I settled on a lipstick (only £1) and an eyebrow kit in medium (£2.50). Here's what I thought....

First off, we have the amazingly priced lipstick, in the shade Crime. This is a lovely and well pigmented bright pinky purple colour, which has quickly become one of my favorites for spring.  The packaging is very similar to that of MUA lipsticks - sleek, simple and sturdy - but what more do you need? I quite like the simple packaging. In terms of the product itself, the lasting power is amazing! For me, it lasted around 6 - 8 hours without needing to be reapplied, and was still visible on my lips up to 10 hours later! I was amazed. It's also quite moisturising too. I still used a lip balm underneath as always, but I'm not sure you'd need to. 

When I saw a brow shaping kit for only £2.50, I knew I'd end up buying it. I chose the shade medium, as the colour still looked quite dark, and I was glad I did as they are also really well pigmented. Also, even though I would prefer to use my own tweezers to remove stray hairs, how cute are the mini ones you get in this? They are possibly the sweetest thing I've ever seen. I also chose to use my own brush to apply this, but I did try the brush that came with the set, and it's pretty good. Obviously it's only got a small handle which means you don't get as much precision, but the brush head seems pretty good quality - great if you want a top up while out and about. 

Overall I was really impressed with both of these products, and I can see myself making a few more sneaky purchases soon. Have any of you tried any Makeup Revolution products, and if so what did you think? 

Love to you all x
