They have completely dominated the UK drugstore domain with their high quality products at a (let's face it), cheapest price.
And while some people maybe sceptical that good quality and low, low prices don't really mix- just hear me out for a second. What I don't understand is why you are willing to pay sometimes, double the price for a product that a company can give you for a better deal but still deliver on quality.
I'm specifically looking at those who swear that MAC Cosmetics are the one and only- when at times the quality on some of their products- especially their polishes and eye shadows, don't really justify the £20 price tag!
I'm not here to ruffle feathers or cause any sort of beauty debate but I find this particular habit confusing.
(L-R: Nude, Dare and Divine)
So for the past couple of days, I have been really wanting to add more to my lip products, as all I have is mainly pinky lip glosses.
At first, I did pace up and down the make-up aisle of Superdrug, looking into many brands and their lipsticks- many of the ones I wanted to try, were sold out, (was the case with Rimmel and Loreal).
Then taking to Make-up Revolution section, I managed to swipe these lipsticks- that were too low on stock!
And being a mere £1 each, I would have brought more but honestly, there weren't anymore to purchase. At first glance, they look very classic in appearance, which gave me the impression that they may drag on the lips and/or give little colour pay off.
So let's test these babies, shall we?
First up is 'Nude'- which obviously is a pale nude shade.
In the past, I have tried on nude shades and was put off of it. Just like frosted pinks and bright peach lipsticks, that are totally unflattering on me.
This however, was subtle enough to not make me look sickly, but prominent enough to make an impact. With it's creamy consistency, it applied nicely onto my lips and the colour is buildable.
Next is 'Dare'. A blue toned red and isn't very daring in it's colour.
But then again, how do you make a red lippy daring?!
Stupid remark there, Sarah.
I found that this was very pigmented and applied on more smoothly than the other two and unlike my MUA Red lipstick, this has a less glossy appearance- which I prefer.
Last but not least is 'Divine'- this peach colour, also a matte shade.
I'm undecided on this colour to be honest.
As I mentioned, I struggle to get along with peachy lipsticks, despite wanting to wear them confidently without feeling like it makes me look sick or without making my teeth yellow.
Divine isn't exactly as bold as many others on the market and again makes a subtle impact.
So why am I so 'meh' about this one.
I guess it's personal. I have never used a matte lipstick before and it drags a little more than the others, the colour can sit in the cracks of the lips and it makes any dry patches FREAKING obvious!
But not every one person is the same. I'm sure more than half of you won't have the same issue.
Should you buy?
If you are looking for a good lippy, at a really good price.
I say, get them. Buy them all. There are so many unthinkable shades, that there is bound to be a colour there for everyone!
Once again Make-up Revolution doesn't fail to disappoint me!
What are your thoughts? Are there any lipsticks you recommend for me to try?
