Revolution love to launch new lip products, and they even have a Lip Boutique where they offer four different lip product finishes with an insane 88 different shades. I have to admit I find the whole lip boutique concept a little overwhelming, but when I saw the Revolution Powder Matte Lipstick collection launch with just twelve shades, I was a little more interested. I’m not the biggest matte lipstick fan, but the description of this new range sounded a little different to their typical matte lipstick range.
The Revolution Powder Matte Lipstick collection are £5 each, and as I mentioned above, there are twelve different shades. There are a good range of shades to choose from, with a selection of nudes, pinks, reds and berries. The packaging is so sleek and lovely for a £5 lipstick, with a rose coloured matte finish to the casing and a colour co-ordinated ring around the centre. On the centre ring, there’s an ‘R’ round disc which is a nice extra touch, and it really doesn’t look or feel like a £5 lipstick.
The lipstick bullet has a velvet appearance which looks remarkably similar to the Huda Beauty Power Matte Lipsticks, and the fact that these lipsticks are called the Revolution Powder Matte Lipstick – it’s clear that’s no coincidence. I’ve never tried the Huda Beauty Power Matte Lipsticks, so I can’t comment on whether they’re similar in terms of formula but for £5 they’re well worth a try if you have been dying to try the Huda lipsticks.
“Matte is back! This time, we’ve created the Powder Matte Lipstick collection of crushed velvet shades. Whether you’re a fan of more natural nude tones, or you want to make lips pop with bright reds, fab fuchsias and bangin’ berries – we’ve got the lot.
The rose gold case is so chic, they’ll become part of your handbag essentials – day or night!
Cruelty free and vegan.“
All the nude shades within the Revolution Powder Matte Lipstick collection were tempting to me, a nude lipstick obsessive so it was hard to choose which one to try first. I didn’t want to buy more than one at first, incase I didn’t like the formula or I found it to be too drying on the lips. I finally settled on the shade Naked after looking at the swatches on the Revolution website.
I also liked the look of Teddy, Frost and Love which I would definitely consider after liking the formula so much. It’s the perfect pinky nude shade, with just a touch of warmth and it really reminds me of a slightly nuder version of Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk, and it’s the most comfortable matte lipstick I’ve tried. It’s not drying, and this shade is opaque in a couple of swipes.
