Makeup Revolution Salvation Velvet Matte Lip Lacquers

Hello my beauties I hope you are all well 
Today I bring you another Makeup Revolution review this time on the Velvet Matte Lip Lacquers 
I have 2 shades of these to show you but there are 7 shades to choose from 
So grab a cuppa sit back and I hope you enjoy my review :) :) 
They cost £3 each which is a great bargain for these If i do say so myself 
Makeup Revolution claims:  This is your salvation to get perfect matte lips that are touch proof. A long lasting lip gloss that goes on as a liquid and dries to a highly pigmented, bold matte finish which stays in place for hours! Easy to apply with the applicator to completely cover the lips. Completely touch proof! Revolution tip: Even lasts all night when you are eating and drinkin

I have to say I am impressed with the outer packaging of these beauties I love the rose gold packaging which makes look like you have paid more than what you did for them.  
The Lacquers themselves come in a lipgloss type tube with a doe foot applicator.  As mentioned above there are 7 shades to choose from I of course went for one safe shade and one crazy shade haha 


The first shade is 

What I believe:  This is a beautiful peachy nude with a slight pink undertone a very warm shade that is perfect for a smokey eye look :) :) I have to admit this is alot brighter than some peachy nude lip products I have but its stunning :) :) 

Next up is 
I fall in Love :  Oh yes this is the shade I posted on facebook yesterday for all of you who are wondering :)  So bright So beautiful and Sooooooo Noticeable.  This bright cool toned cerise pink is perfect for a no makeup look day when you are not bothered about eye makeup just apply this little beauty to your lips and no one will notice you are not wearing anything on your eyes 

Well now that I have you well filled in on these shades let me tell you about my experiences with them. 

Application 
 Well as I am not one to wear matte lip products often simply leaving the matte lip wearing for special occasions etc.   I did all I was supposed to do in the sense of prepping my lips my ex-foliating them and wearing plenty of balm prior to application.  Of course dabbing off the excess oils from the balm and applying.  Applying the Lip Lacquers were a dream thanks to its lovely sized doe foot applicator you have more of a chance of not making a mistake.  Even though the Lip Lacquers dry matte they do give you time to tidy up before they dry completely on your lips 

Pigmentation 
I have to say the product is very pigmented and you would not need one layer to do get the shade you see in the tube 
You can build up the intensity which is more of a bonus but in my eyes its perfect with one layer 

How it feels 
You have to allow your lips to dry before you smack your lips together or the product will become patchy.  When you apply it first it feels smooth and soft like a moisturising lip cream.  Then after about 7 seconds you will feel the Lacquers starting to dry and become sticky.  Another few seconds and yours lips are completely dry.  Apart from that you are left with the most irresistible lips ever :)  
If you cant stand the dryness of these simply apply a layer of gloss over the lip product and it looks amazing :) :) 

Lasting Power?
The Matte Lip Lacquers do last a long time and I find the brighter the shade is the longer they last.  I found I still had some colour on my lips after about 6 hours of wear without touching up.  Mind you if you do not top up you will find patchiness.  If you eat anything oily while wearing this I would advise to check you lippy after as the oils from the food can remove the colour a little.  Apart from oily foods drinking and eating will not disturb your lips.  I have also tried these with gloss over it and the lasting power is a little lessened because of the gloss.  With gloss over the lip lacquers they will last about 3 hours before you feel the need to top up.   Now for some lip swatches :) These pictures were taken in direct sunlight :) 

In the photo below I am wearing a gloss the NYX Mega Shine Gloss in shade Perfect (which has a slight pinky shade with gold specks of shimmer)  over What I believe to be honest I have been wearing this alot lately :) 


Would I recommend these?
Yes 100% to those you do not mind matte lip products :) you will love them no doubt.  Those of you who does not like that dry feeling on your lips im afraid you will not enjoy these as your lips will feel dry the whole time you wear these.  Try to stay away from these when you are suffering with dry cracked lips as this product will soak into your dry patches and lines on your lips making your lips not look so great.  In other words you have to have good conditioned lips to pull these off.  
  I for one am 50/50 when it comes to matte lip products as I have in my time tried out so many matte lip products alot has not impressed me but I have to say Makeup Revolutions Velvet Matte Lip Lacquers have :)  
Well I hope you enjoyed this review Let me know what you think.  Have you tried these yet 
Until next time 
Lots of Love Luck and Laughter

These are both stunning shades, shame the formula isn't quite there! I'm so bad with lip products, if I can tell they're on my lips they drive me mad so I don't think I'd cope very well with these!
