Revolution London is a cruelty free brand with the drugstore price tag. This week I am using Revolution’s Unicorn Dream Lip Kit. With a metallic purple lip liner and a holographic lip gloss, this lip kit is interesting to say the least. It’s not the most outrageous lipstick I’ve tried as it is surprisingly subtle. To achieve this look, I layered the lip liner on the edges and shaded in the outer parts of my lips. Then I blended it in using the holographic lip gloss. Okay, this isn’t the best quality lipstick I have encountered, but for £6.00 you can’t go wrong, especially if you’re feeling brave and want to try new colours.
Revolution Luxe lip kit is a serious bargain. It’s a drugstore brand and it’s pretty decent. The Revolution Luxe Lip Kit includes a lip liner and a lipstick and comes in matte, metallic and glossy. The liner is quality, it’s pigmented and creamy. The matte lipstick is good, although it doesn’t have a nice fragrance like other brands it is not something I’m going to cry over because this kit costs £6. If you love collecting cute lip colours you would love this. And you wouldn’t be breaking the bank either.
I am a fan of Ciaté, a cruelty free and vegan friendly brand. This week I’m using Ciaté Glitter flip in the colour Whisper. It comes in many gorgeous colours, but what is really cool about this lipstick is that it becomes glittery the more you pucker your lips together! To use this, you apply one coat and allow it to dry for a couple of minutes, then the best bit, you press your lips together and watch as the glitter reveals itself! It’s magic! The more you smack your lips together, the more sparkly your lips become. It’s so fun and pretty, I love it.00
My Lipstick Of The Week is Ciaté London, Liquid Chrome Metallic Lip Gloss, colour Luna. I’ve always known Ciaté London for their cute nail polishes, but they actually sell many products from lip glosses to eye shadow palettes and they are cruelty free. Their prices are very reasonable and this lip gloss is beautiful. Chrome lip glosses are great for creating fuller lips and also making a statement. This range comes in six gorgeous colours and retails at £15. This colour is the perfect rose gold on its own and can be used as a topper too!
After loving the last Matte Me Up lip set I got from Barry M, I had to get another set! I chose this amazing colour called 24 Carat. This matte chrome effect gives the illusion of fuller lips. The quality of this product is very good, especially for £6.99. For £6.99 you get a full sized lip colour and lip liner. A lot of brands are now selling chrome lip toppers, this colour is so metallic you won’t need to use any chrome lip topper to get this beautiful metallic sheen. Thumbs up Barry M for another gorgeous lip set.
NARS Velvet Lip Glide is so dense and rich in pigment that it leaves your lips looking deliciously glossy. It comes in a cute and understated packaging. I’m using this beautiful vamp colour called Unspeakable. To get this really glossy look I applied on a few layers. I love this gloss, it comes in many shades from nudes to vampire. I already have the colour Stripped and I will be adding more to my collection. It’s so worth the £23.00, I highly recommend!
I am loving this colour!! It’s the perfect vampire shade. However I had to be generous, applying on a few layers to achieve the full potential of this lipstick. Retailing at £26, it is a little on the high end of lipstick prices. Yes, the packaging is slick, the lid is magnetic and snaps on in a very sophisticated way. But does this warrant spending £26? The sensible part of me says no, but the naughty side of me says this colour is banging. It’s a good lipstick, it is moisturising and goes on very silky giving your lips a beautiful shine. NARS claims that this lipstick gives a full coverage in a single stroke, but I disagree with this claim as I had to apply quite a few layers to get full coverage. Although I like this lipstick, I’m not in a rush to buy more shades from this range as I feel that there isn’t anything majorly special about it that makes it stand out from other lipsticks.
