Lip creams as fast becoming one of my favourite kind of lip products. I love the Collection editions and I’m a big fan of the super affordable lip creams from German brand Manhattan but I’ve been reaching for the Makeup Revolution offerings the most. One of my most used shades is definitely the Makeup Revolution Lip Cream in Don’t Bring Me Down. Now firstly I’d like to point out that the formula of this lip cream does differ quite dramatically in comparison to the other lip creams I’ve tried. When it comes to lip creams I tend to find that they apply silky smooth and dry to a sort of powder matte formula which is often fairly long-lasting however, when it comes to the Makeup Revolution Lip Cream in Don’t Bring Me Down, it doesn’t exactly have a matte finish. For application it applies nice and smoothly, it can sometimes go on a little patchy but this is something that can easily be solved with the help of the doe foot applicator. When on the lips the product feels smooth and comfortable. You can feel it dry like any other lip cream however, the Makeup Revolution Lip Cream in Don’t Bring Me Down has an ever so slight sheen to it. Also, unlike many other lip creams, it doesn’t ever seen to fully dry. Instead, it feels very creamy on the lips. A downside of this is that it does transfer and the lasting power isn’t amazing, however, it isn’t a terrible formula, it is just different to what I am used to and not what I expected. A great thing about the Makeup Revolution Lip Cream in Don’t Bring Me Down is of course the colour. The shade is a lovely pink. In the tube it looks very bright and a little daunting but take my word for it, it isn’t difficult to pull off as it doesn’t appear stupidly bold on the lips. The colour isn’t quite your typical fuchsia as it is a smidgen more red toned but when blended out in does appear as more of a berry pink colour. Personally I like the shade as it works with my pale complexion without washing me out and it is a fun shade. When swatched on the skin it appears to have very strong pigmentation which many might find a little overwhelming however, when applied onto the lips it oddly appears a little more toned down and very wearable. Now although the formula isn’t really drying, I do think it is essential that you prep your lips thoroughly before to ensure that they’re free from dry patches as this is a product that is going to clinging to dry areas. It’s also good to be aware that if you are someone who has a lot of fine lines on your lips, this is something that is going to accentuate them. All in all, the formula isn’t flawless but for the price (£3.00) it isn’t bad. Also, I have a brand new Makeup Revolution Lip Cream in Don’t Bring Me Down to giveaway to one lucky person.
