This year Makeup Revolution have brought out their own version of the liquid lip kit. Called Retro Luxe, the brand offers matte, metallic and gloss kits. I've tried the matte kits and think the colors looked great. The only downside to them was that they have a sticky/tacky finish to them.
Not so long ago the creator of Makeup Revolution - Adam Minto, announced on Instagram that there is a new version of the matte lip kit out, with a brand new improved formula that is non sticky. I really like how the brand has listened to it's customers and changed the formula.
So the other day in Superdrug I saw that there were a few of the new and improved lip kits for sale. I decided to get one in a color I haven't tried before - Reign, which is a nude pink color. The new and improved kits have a slightly different design on the packaging and even say new improved on them. I think the new design on the packaging looks a lot better.
The liner seemed identical to the one from the original lip kits, so it seems as though only the lipstick has been changed. Like the old formula these ones are still nice and creamy and have a good amount of pigment in them. They didn't need much building up as the pigment was very strong. I could definitely notice the difference to the formula as once on they didn't have that sticky and tacky feeling that the old ones did.
This is definitely an improvement from the original formula as the sticky finish didn't feel great. This one stayed on for most of the day too and only needed a bit of reapplying. It also felt non drying too. I like how Makeup Revolution changed the formula of this product. It was a good product before but it just needed that slight to change to make it fantastic.
