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-
- Unleash(peachy shade)
- Shockwave(neon purple)
- Firestorm( True red)
AVAILABLE (mostly online)-
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.
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.
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.
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.:)
Thumbs up 👍 –
- Superb formulation
- stays all day
- Great pigmentation
- Blue-toned red(Shade “FIRESTORM”) looks best on women of colour.
- Stains lips even after removing
- doesn’t have any smell
Thumbs Down 👎 –
- Transfers a lot
- Mostly available online in india .
- Drugstore price.
- Great dupe of “Too faced melted “
- Shade name is not mentioned on the tube
Overall, i love it because it is quite affordable dupe when compared to TOO FACED MELTED (which is $19 each). i love its formulation and the fact that it stays on forever . 🙂 i would love to see more shades in this lip lava range of makeup revolution.
