Makeup Revolution Lip Lacquer || Review and Swatches - Guest Post

This is my third post in my Makeup Revolution series and I'm really pleased that I've had the chance to post it on the amazing student-stylexo! Today's review is for their Salvation Velvet Lip Lacquer which I have in the shade 'What I Believe'.

When I saw this on the Makeup Revolution website there was no way that I could not order a lacquer to try as I'm in the grip of a serious matte lips obsession at the moment. This lip lacquer applies as a very pigmented liquid lipstick and quickly dries to a matte finish.The applicator is pretty standard for a lipstick or gloss but is easy to work with and allows you to get precision application - something you'll need because the colour payoff is excellent.

'What I Believe' is a peachy pink that swatches darker on my hand than it appears on the lips - I'll post a shot of the product on below. I'm not too sure if this colour suits me or not - I think it would work really well with a smokey eye for evening but it's a little off for daytime wear.

You can feel the lip lacquer as it dries on your lips but it's not an uncomfortable sensation and I soon forgot that I was wearing this product. The closest product I can compare this too is Max Factor's Lipfinity so if you've tried that hopefully you know the feeling I'm trying to describe.

Like Lipfinity, once Salvation Lip Lacquer is applied then it ain't gonna budge! I can apply this in the morning, make my way through cups of tea, much talking, lunch and yet more tea and still have a decent looking lip at the end of the day. The product is a little drying for long term wear but a slick of clear lip balm over the top solves this problem and doesn't effect the longevity of the colour.

The packaging of this product is another plus point for me - I love the rose gold finish which looks a lot more expensive than it is. Makeup Revolution's Salvation Velvet Lip Lacquer is available in 7 different shades here for a bargain price of £3.00 each.

If you want to read more about Makeup Revolution's products then I've also reviewed their lipsticks and an Acid Brights eyeshadow palette that's a budget take on Urban Decay's Electric Palette.
