I Heart Makeup Lip Lava in Shockwave Review and Giveaway

I Heart Makeup Lip Lava in Shockwave Review and GiveawayI Heart Makeup Lip Lava in Shockwave Review and Giveaway Swatch

Ever since I Heart Makeup (Makeup Revolution’s sister brand) released the I Heart Makeup Lip Lava in Shockwave, I knew it had to be mine. The Lip Lavas in general are said to be dupes for the famous and much loved Too Faced Melted Lipsticks. I haven’t tried any of the Too Faced lip products but I’ve always been intrigued by them however, the price tag has always put me off purchasing. As the I Heart Makeup versions cost a fraction of the price at a mere £2.99, I thought it was time to try this type of formulated lipstick. Despite I Heart Makeup offering a great range of tempting shades, one shade stood out from the rest and that shade was Shockwave. Shockwave is a colour that is said to be a dupe of the Too Faced shade Violet. It is a very bold, bright, fun and creamy purple shade. I personally love it however, I do think a lot of people might be a bit apprehensive of wearing this as it is a bit “out there”. What I love about it is the contrast between my pale skin and the shade however, I also think this would look absolutely amazing on those with dark skin. In terms of the formula, it is really good. The pigmentation is strong but not stupidly intense. The lipstick also applies really well via the angled tube, it glides on, almost like butter and requires minimal effort to achieve a clean application. For the most part the lipstick sits really well on the lips which is no doubt down to the Vitamin E that it contains but it is worth mentioning that the product does have a ever so slight sticky finish to it. I hate sticky lip products but I found this to be very bearable and comfortable to wear. All in all I like it. Since trying Shockwave I feel that I definitely need to try some of the other shades in the range.
