When Makeup Revolution originally launched the Makeup Revolution Renaissance Lipsticks, I didn’t buy any as I wasn’t wowed by any of the shades even though I read some really glowing reviews of the formula. I have always wanted to try them as the packaging looks stunning, so when Makeup Revolution launched their newest shades I decided to buy three which were my kind of shades and they’re only £4 each. The Makeup Revolution Renaissance Lipsticks are now available in 26 different shades, and the packaging was recently upgraded from the original Renaissance design with the tubes now having a colour coded base section.
“Smooth and creamy and comfortable on the lips, with high colour payoff. Encased in a beautiful rose gold container. Shades to suit any occasion from light nudes to deep vamp shades – You’ll be sure to love everything about these lipsticks.”
I bought three of the new Makeup Revolution Renaissance Lipsticks shades in Blended, Higher and Untoward which looked to be the palest shades. The shade range is lacking some lighter nudes and pinks in my opinion, so I’m happy there’s a couple within the new shades which launched but there’s definitely room for more lighter shades in my opinion. According to Makeup Revolution’s descriptions, Blended is a ‘pale pink nude’, Higher is a ‘peachy pink light nude’ and Untoward is a ‘peachy toned pink nude’.
I would however describe the shades a little differently, as Blended to me is a light pink rather than pale so don’t let the pale description put you off as it’s not very pale at all. Higher is more beige than peach, and is a warm toned light brown nude when swatched and on the lips and lastly, Untoward is a peachy coral and not at all nude – it’s actually pretty bright, and reminds me of MAC Ravishing Lipstick.
The formula of the Makeup Revolution Renaissance Lipsticks is very creamy and smooth, and it reminds me of the MAC Cremesheen formula with the same comfort and shine. All three shades are decently pigmented and require a couple of swipes, and they wear for around two hours before I need to touch up although I can get away without touching up Blended and Higher for three to four hours as they’re lighter in tone and thus a little more forgiving. The only downside for me is the scent, they don’t smell great which is a shame as I like the scent of the rest of the Makeup Revolution lip products, but scent aside I really like the formula and all three of these shades.
Have you ever tried any of the Makeup Revolution Renaissance lipsticks?
