SHADE-Medium

Price-Rs 700 (10.42 usd)

Quantity-10grams

Packaging-the packaging is much similiar to nyx brow tint.it is packaged within a squeezy plastic tube, with a nozzle.The packaging is quite classy…but there’s no brush to go along with this product.

The Application.

The first thing I’d say is that you need the smallest amount of this stuff for both eyebrows, below is about as much as I use (one dot).

 Lasting Power-

With powder I often find that it fades through the day but this stuff doesn’t, it sets to a natural looking finish, it’s not crispy or waxy but it doesn’t budge, I still definitely have to remove quite a bit at night when I’m taking off my makeup which is good. I wear my makeup for around 12-14 hours a day and I never feel like I need to touch it up.

MY EXPERIENCE-

. Once applied to the brows, it really doesn’t budge and it is completely smudgeproof like it claims and it’s even waterproof too so it would be the perfect brow companion in the summer or on holiday as your brows would stay in place all day. I think this would be the perfect brow product if the shade range was a little more diverse, so I really hope Makeup Revolution create some cool toned fair and dark shades as three out of the four shades are warm toned.

THUMBS UP-

  • Great pigmentation
  • easy to use
  • medium shade is a bit reddish ,,..not so good for indian skin tone
  • feels light
  • smudge proof
  • affordable

THUMBS DOWN-

  • no brush is given with it…so you have to buy a brush for its application
  • limited shades
  • easily available only online

My experience-

These lipsticks come in a set of six (at  Amazon) containing brown ,nudes ,pink and red shade.these shades are even sold separately on ebay.

These lipstick have “Numbers” mentioned on it for different shades…instead of names.

The nude Shades in this set are “Kylie Jennerish” shades 🙂

These are incredibly smooth powdery matte lipstick…Pigmentation is really good…so good that it won’t come off even on waashing.Only makeup removers or oil can remove it…Hence kissproof i guess 😛 as the name says.

But it might feel dry for people with dry lips.

when applied over any other lipstick it makes it look matte.

these act as great lipliner for liquid lipstick…especially shade 5 and shade 9 which helps in concealing dark pigmentation on lips.

No doubt that this product does stands out to what it claims to be.
It is a super soft and smooth, even the colour pay off is very good.
It can be doubled up as an eyebrow pencil as well as eyeliner….. Though personally i use it as an eyeliner ☺…
It just glides on…. Without hurting your eye…. Good for applying over waterline.

MAKEUP REVOLUTION LIP LAVA

Hi guys,

As soon as i discovered that TOO FACED MELTED LIPSTICK’s have a dupe …..i knew that  i had to get my hands on these- MAKEUP REVOLUTION LIP LAVA.

PRODUCT REVIEWED– MAKEUP REVOLUTION LIP LAVA

SHADE REVIEWED– Firestorm

PRICE-RS 700( 4.59usd /2.99GBP) for 12ml

IT COMES IN FOUR SHADES-

AVAILABLE (mostly online)-

IMG_20160117_122055

PACKAGING-

It comes in pretty chic cardboard box which shows quite a close resemblance to the “too faced melted lipsticks” quite sturdy enough to store in the squeezin tube containing the lipstick.

IMG_20160117_122204

This is how the red plastic squeeze-in tube  with a black cap  looks like this.The tube represents the colour of the lipstick,which is quite helpful in selecting the shade ……thought the name of the lipstick “FIRESTORM” is not mentioned anywhere.It has a soft sponge applicator tip which i feel might be unhygienic so it cannot be shared ,if used directly on lips by one person.IMG_20160117_122405

WHAT THE PRODUCT CLAIMS-

The Lip Lavas are described as an Intense lipstick formula, melted to create our most impactful gloss. Smooth and comfortable wear, with long lasting formula with Vitamin E

DUPE of too faced melted –

Too Faced MELTED LIPSTICK came out with a lot more shades, but, the Lip Lava’s have pretty much exact color dupes for

Melted Nude = Forgiven,

Melted Ruby = Firestorm,

Melted Coral = Unleash,

Melted Violet = Shockwave and

Melted Peony = Tremor

REVIEW-

The collection contains five shades in gorgeous bright and vibrant colours.

When the Lip Lavas are first applied to the lips, the finish is very glossy although over time the glossiness does reduce slightly but it stays relatively glossy whereas the Too Faced Melted Lipsticks dry down to a matte finish which is probably the only difference between the two products.

I am quite happy to see  the pigmentation, these Lip Lava’s are very pigmented, just like as i had expected and heard about it.

FIRESTORM being a “BLUE-TONED RED” looks gorgeous on my skin colour(wheatish skin).i love wearing it all the time …even a small amount of the lipstick looks like a stain which a prefer. 🙂

Smell– The Lip Lava lipsticks don’t have a scent which is a plus point 🙂

Texture– it’s smooth and creamy but feels stick at first on application.

STAYING POWER-It stays all day long  unless you remove it.i have noticed that even after removing it off with a baby wipe it tends to remain as stain on lips which looks lovely on its own.

TRANFER-The only downside of this product is that it tranfers a lot….like hell. But even after transferring, it remains on your lips forever.:)
