Review: Revolution (I Heart Makeup) Lipstick

I've been intrigued by these glossy pink bullets ever since I first saw them in Superdrug a few months ago. It doesn't say so on the packet- nor are they placed under the Makeup Revolution counter- but this I Heart Makeup range is simply a branch of the Revolution brand. They are in fact found on the Revolution website as well, which is useful seeing as I've only ever seen this line in one Superdrug store.

First things first- packaging! I adore the fact that these lipsticks come in their own individual boxes. The bullet itself is honestly what drew me to them- I think a row of these would make a great dressing table feature! The bullet is exactly the same shape as MAC lipsticks, though they're a bit bigger. Luckily this lipstick still fits in my lipstick stand, so there's no issue there. Another strange observation- you'll be surprised at how light this lipstick is. It weighs next to nothing!
These lipsticks certainly stand out from the crowd thanks to their appearance...but wait until you see the names. This particular one is called Ken Will Want Me. Urm, okay? Other names include Barbie Is Jealous, Totally Not Boring and Lips That Won't Lie. They remind me very much of the messages on Love Hearts- kinda creepy but kinda cute.
Onto the actual product... Here are my observations!
- The lipstick is totally scentless.
- The formula is creamy and has a somewhat sheen finish.
- Nevertheless....the pigment is incredible! This particular shade is a gorgeous bright pink and would look perfectly placed in any summer makeup look.
-Even with the great pigment, the somewhat sheen finish means that you barely notice you're wearing lipstick. It isn't drying nor is it too moist, so I am a big fan of this formula.
- Obviously, any non-matte lipstick like this isn't going to last all day, but the high pigment in this means that the colour definitely sticks around long enough to make it a non-issue. It may be a different story with a nude lipstick from the line but I am definitely impressed with this one.
I will definitely be getting my hands on more of these...don't judge a book by its cover, but when a lipstick looks as fabulous as this you should probably go for it! Til next time xo
