REVIEW & SWATCHES || Makeup Revolution #liphugs (+ a MAC Lustre Dupe!)


The most exciting new products from Makeup Revolution for me were the £2.50 #liphugs! Now it's been mentioned they are very similar in  packaging and consistency to the Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Colours. I normally wait a little longer before reviewing, however I've been wearing these every single day since they arrived...

Also I've now swatched even more shades - you can check them out here :)


I chose the shades Save Me From Yourself, Keeps the Planet Spinning and Still Missing My Baby (it wouldn't be MUR without the cheesy names!) The packaging is actually really nice and sleek (reminiscent of the Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Colours, in fact...), even from Makeup Revolution I would have expected to spend at least £5 on this sort of product. The only negative for me is that for the first few uses these took a bit of wiggling to get the product to wind up and down properly; I found this with all the shades. 

Here's how they looked swatched with 3 layers:


 

At least with the colours I picked, I couldn't see any shimmer at all. I found they glided out much more easily than my Topshop Sheer Lips and they feel really nice and hydrating. You know sometimes cheaper sheer lip colours can feel really thin and greasy? I don't get that at all with these, they honestly feel like the MAC Lustre formula which brings me onto the dupe I spotted!


As you can see Save Me From Yourself is extremely similar to my favourite MAC Lustre Lipstick: Jubilee! Save Me From Yourself has a very slight terracotta undertone and is a little less glossy and more pigmented, but apart from that the two look and feel very alike. I'm really pleased to have found a dupe for my perfect caramel-nude! I hate taking expensive lipsticks on nights out so I'm relieved to have something I can create the same look with that I can easily replace if it gets lost. Also, if you've considered getting Jubilee I think you should try this instead.


                     SAVE ME FROM YOURSELF                                        JUBILEE



Keeps the Planet Spinning is a sort of 'berry for people who don't do berry'. If Still Missing My Baby is blackcurrant then this one is raspberry, if that analogy made any sense! I found this did do the 'lipliner' fade a little after a while, which is odd as the darkest shade didn't. 

                                                                  KEEPS THE PLANET SPINNING

Still Missing My Baby is the full-on vampy berry/wine shade. When it wears off you do still have a nice stain, which is always good as I hate the 'lipliner' fade!

                                                                   STILL MISSING MY BABY

Obviously the only downside is one that comes with all lip colours of this type - whether they're £2.50 or £25 - and that's the staying power. To be honest I just wouldn't expect this kind of product to last more than a few hours so it doesn't bother me but I guess it's still worth mentioning. From the ones I have the lightest shade wears off the fastest, followed by the medium one and the longest lasting is the darkest.

Honestly, for me Makeup Revolution has always been about the eye products and I've been hesitant in the past to order lip colours online. However the Lip Hugs are a stroke of brilliance and I can't wait to get my hands on more shades! I love wearing Save Me From Yourself in the day then switching to one of the more berry shades for the evening.

I've since got even more of these so keep and eye out for more swatches! (I'll post on Twitter when they're up!)
