Revolution Lip Lava Liquid Lipsticks

Last week I talked about the Revolution Radiant Lights Palette. This week I wanna talk to you about the Lip Lava liquid lipsticks (AV).  I think these are supposed to be a dupe for the Too Faced ones, but those are hella pricey so I don't have any of those yet to compare.  

I love these though.  

There are 5 shades available at £2.99 each, or if you buy all 5 together, you get all 5 for £11.96, so one free! Win.  Obviously I bought them all.

They are very pigmented and easy to apply with the applicator and they are great for mixing.  Some of them went onto my hand a bit chunky but I haven't found that when applying to the lips.

Here's a pic of the applicator, a kind of doe-foot applicator but the product is dispensed through the centre rather than it being a wand.

As such...

Hand swatch: these swatches are mostly a bit more true to life than the lip swatches, which got a bit more washed out.  They look super opaque, right? They are.  And you can see below how much I used to get each lipswatch.

Shades L-R: Unleash, Firestorm, Forgiven, Tremor, Shockwave

Bit of a crap blurry pic but just to demonstrate how much I used for each lip swatch, a diddy amount!

Lip Swatches

This shade I was nervous of when I swatched it on my hand as it's quite orange, but it's a gorgeous peachy coral. It's bright though so not one for the timid. I love it.

Gorgeous, blue-based red. Crap rushed application, sorry. I love this colour, it's gorgeous. It needs a bit more work and is not as opaque as the other shades but it's worth it.

OK I totally expected to hate this one; it's really brown! I don't like brown lipsticks (flashback of terrible teenage makeup blunders in the mid-late 90s!) but I actually like this on. It's a lovely browny nude and I have surprised myself by wearing it and liking it!

This is my favourite; not because the colour is anything mind-blowing, it's just a nice pink, rather because it's the most wearable. Also, it's brilliant for mixing with any of the other shades to tone them down. 

This is the crappest lip swatch (think the light was fading at this point), it's much more vibrant and true to the hand-swatch than this. If you love purple and are not afraid to rock it, go for this one. 

The first thing I thought of when I swatched this colour was OCC's Hoochie Lip Tar. So I swatched them together for ya! Shockwave is more pinky than Hoochie so if Hoochie is a bit too grey/blue for you, then this might be a good alternative. They are quite similar in texture too.

That's all for today. Have a fab week all!
