So if you’ve seen on twitter lately you’ll know I’ve just been loving wearing lipstick at the moment. I just feel like I want to own every colour possible! I’ve been asking around which ones I should try and I’ve received lots of suggestions. When I was shopping the other day in Superdrug I saw the ‘Makeup Revolution Salvation Velvet Lacquers’. I’d seen so many mixed reviews on these and honestly I wasn’t sure. For £3 each though I thought I’d give them a go and get back to you what I thought about them. I picked three shades up a coral orange, a bright pink and a purple shade. I’ve tried each one and photographed what they look like below!
This first shade is a coral orange colour called ‘Keep On Flying For You’. Looking at the product at first glance I loved the colour so much. I do warn you though it’s a lot brighter when applied on your lips. In general I liked the way this looked and I think it’s a really pretty summer colour. I think I’d struggle to pair this with an outfit but that’s purely because of my wardrobe. I found application was easy with this colour. However I do recommend putting on two layers which is what I had to do. I found that it was a little patchy with only one coat. Overall I do like this one and if you’re looking for a bright coral colour for summer then go for this one!
This is a purple shade called ‘Velvet Rebel’. I generally tend to reach for the more purple shades so I definitely loved the look if this one. You may be able to see this in the photo but I really struggled to apply this one. It took me a couple of attempts but once I got it on I really liked it. The colour is pretty much the same as you see in the bottle. I only had to uses one coat of this colour on my lips also. I probably would be reaching for this colour more in autumn/winter though!
The last one I picked was this bright pink called ‘You Took My Love’. I kind of fell in love with the name of this one! I don’t own any bright pink lipsticks so I thought I’d give it a go. I was really not sure on the colour I thought it may be a little too bright. Once I’d tried it though I actually fell in love with the colour! This was my favourite one out of the three I chose. It’s a gorgeous bright pink that I’ll definitely use on a night out soon. I think I’d probably struggle to use this colour on a daily basis though. I only had to use one coat of this and it was super easy to apply. If you looking for something really out there go for this shade.
Overall for £3 I was super surprised at the quality of these! I would purchase these again. They do take a while to dry but I have found they last for several hours. If you are wearing them all day I would say take it with you because you may need to touch it up maybe once. A lot of reviews I read had said these were super difficult to remove from your lips and they left your lips stained. I didn’t find this at all. They came if straight away with makeup wipes and left no colouration on my lips. So if you’re on a budget and looking for a liquid lipstick to buy definitely try these! There’s a link below to the online store where you can find and purchase them.
