Makeup Revolution Retro Matte Lip Kits

Liquid lipsticks are very popular at the moment, especially the Kylie Jenner lip kits. Many different brands are bringing out liquid lipsticks including Makeup Revolution, which is a budget brand that has been known to try and dupe some high end brands. One product it has brought out lately is the Retro Matte Lip Kits. These basically come in a box with a liquid lipstick and lip liner. At first glance they do look a lot like the Kylie lip kits. I haven't tried the Kylie ones so I can't really compare them. I bought 4 of the Makeup Revolution ones and have decided to review them here.


Glory, Regal, Noble, Grandee

These seem to be quite a popular product from Makeup Revolution right now. They can be bought online or in Superdrug. In store most of the colors do sell out, although I did manage to get 4 of them. There are more colors available online. The colors I got were - Glory, Regal, Grandee and Noble.

The packaging is great and comes with a doe foot applicator for easy application. It's easy to see these are designed to look like the Kylie lip kits and whilst they are obviously not going to be the same, they do look similar. I haven't tried the Kylie ones, although I do like the design on the packaging of hers better as the packaging of these does look a bit plain.

I do have to say the lip liner is fantastic. They feel really nice and creamy and have a good amount of pigment in them. I didn't have to press down at all, which is a great thing. The lipsticks do have an amazing amount of pigment in them and don't need much building up. They also glide on nicely too and give a matte finish. 

As they are matte, it is a good idea to put some lip balm on before applying. They aren't very drying but if you do have dry lips they can feel a bit on the dry side. It isn't really noticeable, although later on in the day they did need a bit of reapplying. Some of the colors can have a bit of a sticky feel to them too. It wasn't much of an issue with me and for some reason only Grandee and Noble felt a bit sticky. Glory and Regal didn't feel sticky at all.

For £6.00 each these are really not that bad. I recommend these and I do want to try the other colors in the range too. Makeup Revolution have also brought out metallic lip kits along with gloss ones too.

  1. they somehow remind me about the kyle jenner ones, maybe for the packaging. i like how you look with the red one and the shirt you are wearing in that pic, cause it pairs so well with the lippie.

  6. Lovely colour choices, I don't tend to buy much from Make up Revolution and those brands as I'd rather one or two higher end liquid lipsticks than a load of cheaper ones because I can't get them to work for me, but great if they work for you x

  19. Matte lipstick are really on trend, may it be students, working girls or mommies. They love matte lippies! Well, I must say I am one too! Still checking on shades and sometimes I am experimenting by blending the different lipsticks. - ANOSA
