First Impressions | Makeup Revolution Lipstick in Crime

Wednesday, 29 July 2015

I picked this lipstick up on a whim.

I was in Superdrug, I needed a third item for my 3-for-2, and I was feeling adventurous. Crime caught my eye, and that was that.

This is so far away from the pale pinks, pink-ish nudes, and classic reds I usually reach for. A pink and purple hybrid, Crime is the perfect example of a statement lip colour and it's surprisingly flattering.

It's too pink to be gothic and too purple to be Barbie, and it looks wonderful when worn with defined brows and a polished, semi-matte base. It also works a treat paired with the pink eyeshadow shades from the Iconic 3 palette  a look that's become my go-to for summer nights.

In terms of formula, you wouldn't think this was a £1 lipstick. It feels lovely on lips  smooth application; sits well; a hint of creaminess, almost like a balm  and its staying power ain't bad either.

It does disappear slightly after eating and/or drinking and leaves quite an impressive mark on glasses (much to the chagrin of my friend Dominic) but it fades evenly, leaving something stain-like in its place.

If you're looking to experiment with bold lip colours then I'd highly recommend the Makeup Revolution lipsticks. At £1 each, you can afford to be a little daring, plus they have colours like blue and black on the website (I'm thinking fancy dress for Freshers). Go crazy, my friends.
