Happy Easter guys! I hope you're all having a wonderful bank holiday weekend.
I thought I'd get a good old review+swatches post up today incase you guys want to take a break from eating all that yummy food and Easter eggs and have a little read; I on the other hand have no intention of putting this chocolate down because the Royal Challengers Bangalore aka my team are playing today, so I need all the chocolate in the world to keep my energy up as I scream at the top of my lungs.
I will be talking about the Makeup Revolution Renaissance lipsticks today. You may have seen these making the round on Instagram and also causing a fair bit of controversy as they do resemble the Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks. I won't go into this too much but in my opinion, I love a good dupe. If I really want something high end I will go out and get it, no questions asked, regardless of whether a dupe is available or not. I think purchasing something designer or high end is an experience in itself. Of course not everyone can afford to spend a huge heap of money on a lipstick and you shouldn't have to. A lot of the time the dupes are better than the high end products and sometimes the dupes just can't match up to the high end products and that's just the way things go sometimes, but it's great to have some inexpensive alternatives out there, especially for someone that is just starting to dabble into makeup. I have been a huge fan of Makeup Revolution ever since I read about them on Daily Mail (this was before they had released any products) and I sure do own a fair bit of their products. They're great for everyday use when you don't want to rub £50 in the form of a lipstick on your face. Their products are really affordable and sometimes, just as good as some of the high end products on the market.
The Makeup Revolution Renaissance lipsticks are INCREDIBLE for just £4, they're very pigmented and don't dry out your lips, of course they aren't as long wearing as liquid lipsticks but that can be expected from any lipstick in bullet form, so you may find yourself having to reapply it throughout the day. The packaging is beautiful and has a fair bit of weight to it, so you don't have to worry about it breaking or the lid suddenly falling off and finding your makeup storage in a right old state and assuming it has been vandalised.
The shade range is pretty impressive too, I believe there are 20 shades in total, a lot of these are nude/brown shades, which is right up my street, so I am not complaining.
Below are swatches of the 6 lipsticks that I own from the range.
Top - Bottom: Vintage, Vow, Breathe, Class, Rebirth and Finest
Enjoy the rest of your Easter bank holiday weekend!
