Well hello there!
I really enjoy doing reviews for you so I am coming at you again with another one! This is for the Makeup Revolution Retro Luxe Matte Lip Kit in the shade Echelon. I will also be doing a wear test as well, because this is matte I expect it to last a long time. Makeup Revolution have 3 different types of lip kits: matte, metallic and gloss, and all of their lip kits retail for £6 which is such good value for money. Lip kits all started when Kylie Jenner released them, but they are so much money and because I'm in the UK the shipping would cost a fortune. If these lip kits are good, then I am going to stock up!

The matte lip kit boxes are matte black with gold accents, it is quite small and not an overly bulky box which I like. It has the shade name on the front and the top, but what I have noticed after taking the products out of the box is that the shade does not match the colour of the lips on the box. Which can be a bit confusing, so maybe try looking up swatches online before buying. I love the lid of the matte lipstick, it is copper/rose gold and at the end of the lip liner is also the colour of the product. These lip liners are ones you have to sharpen which is not my favourite but for how cheap this lip kit is, I can deal with it. As it is a lip kit it comes with 1x matte liquid lipstick and 1x lip liner, the packaging for them is very simple and basic but I like that.

Even before I applied this, I love the dofer applicator! It is not too big so it is perfect for distributing the product on your lips without accidentally over drawing them. It feels super creamy when applying and omg these are so pigmented, I didn't need to dip the dofer back into the tube as it covered my lips with the first dip. Once applied, it took about a minute or so to dry down completely. It is completely transfer proof and budge proof so if you need something that is not going to move around, then this is the sort of lip product you would need. I also love the colour of this lipstick, it is a pinky brown nude shade. There is a slight scent to it but it is very subtle.

As this is a matte lipstick, it is going to be drying which it was but I was expecting that. I tested this on a night out and it was on for about 8 hours. The pigment was on my lips for a long time, which I was very impressed by but by the end of the night it had faded around the lines of my lips. The colour was still there on my lips but not fully opaque like it was at the start of the night.

For starters the price is amazing, £6 for a matte liquid lipstick and a lip liner?! I would buy this over and over for that price. Also for us in the UK it is very easy to get hold of. I would honestly buy these over the Kylie lip kits, they are too pricey and with shipping fees you end up spending a fortune. I love the colour of this lipstick, it is very me and I don't usually like drying matte formulas but this is really long lasting. The only thing I don't like is the fact that the lip liner needs to be sharpened, which is so lazy of me but nobody got time for that. I need to pick this up in a couple of their other shades because these are amazing! If you are interested you can buy these here.

So that was my review on the Makeup Revolution Matte Lip Kit, let me know if you would like me to review the glossy lip kits and I am very keen to try them.
Thank you so much for reading,
