Last week saw yet another exciting new release from Makeup Revolution - a range of five amazing liquid lipsticks in beautiful vivid shades. I'm incredibly impressed with the formula, pigmentation and staying power of the Lip Lava liquid lipsticks, and they're only £2.99 each!
Considering the bargain price, I'm rather surprised by the quality of the packaging of the lip lavas. Each comes in a squeezy tube containing 12ml of product, they have a sponge tip applicator and come boxed in pretty self-coloured packaging.
All five shades have intense pigmentation and the texture of a fluid lipstick with a glossy finish. They feel really comfortable on the lips, but stay in place for hours and the sponge tip applicator is just the right size and shape for an easy but precise application straight from the tube.
Tremor, Shockwave and Firestorm are my favourite shades, but all five are beautiful stand-out shades.
The design of the lip lavas is fairly similar to the Too Faced melted liquid lipstick range, so I compared them to the ones I have in my collection to see if I could find any dupes for the textures and colours. Tremor and Melted Peony are exact dupes in colour, and are also similar in texture, with the Makeup Revolution version being glossier in finish. There's no dupe here for Melted Fuchsia, although if I owned a few more of the Too Faced melted lipstick shades I imagine there might be a couple more with similarities - I think it's likely Shockwave and Melted Violet would be close in shade.
Despite the price of the Too Faced melted lipsticks (£19) making them a more high-end purchase, the quality of the Makeup Revolution lip lavas really is comparable. Too Faced has a wider range of colours to choose from, but in terms of the look when I apply the pink shades tremor and peony on my lips, I really can't tell the difference between the two brands.
The Lip Lavas from Makeup Revolution are available now at £2.99 each.
