Last month I made a rather large Makeup Revolution order, (you can read my haul post here) which included loads of goodies that had been on my wishlist for a while. At the top of this said wishlist, was their #LipHugs, which I had been so excited to try for sometime. I managed to get my hands on five of these Lip Hugs, which I’ll review and swatch for you today.
I ordered 4 shades – Insatiable, To Get Lucky, Save Me From Yourself & Love Can Set You Free. Makeup Revolution also had an offer on at the time, of a huge free gift, which also included another Lip Hug, in the shade I Think You’re Amazing.
Firstly, how gorgeously packaged are these lipsticks? I absolutely love the way Makeup Revolution have done it, they look so sleek and pricey, you’d never guess they only retail for £2.50! I love that the quirky names of the shades are on the bottom, so if you own multiples you can tell which one is which without having to open them all.
I’m super impressed with the creamy formula of these liphugs – even more so for the price. They apply really nicely, without tugging at the lips at all and are super easy to wear. They’re incredibly hydrating and leave a gorgeous sheen finish on the lips, and with 20 different shades, there is one (or more) for everyone.
As these are a more moisturising, sheen formula the staying power isn’t exactly the best, but it’s what I would expect from this type of lip product. I would say I got about 3 hours of wear from these, which doesn’t bother me at all as I actually enjoy re-applying lip products.
As you can see from my swatches, I Think You’re Amazing & Save Me From Yourself are very similar shades – I wouldn’t say you needed to pick up both.I Think You’re Amazing was my free shade, so I can’t complain that they’re very alike, just means I can have them both in different handbags! My favourite shade from the ones I picked up is Love Can Set You Free, which is a gorgeous nude pinky mauve colour, perfect for everyday wear.
I haven’t stopped using these Lip Hugs since I got them, I honestly think they’re amazing – I really need to pick up some other shades! What do you think of these? Have you tried any lip products from Makeup Revolution?
