*Makeup Revolution



Hello darlings! Today I have a long overdue post for you about Makeup Revolution. I'm sure by now you've all heard about this brand because it has really exploded in the beauty blog community. :) I was lucky enough to have been sent a few lovely products from Ličila.si (a Slovenian online beauty store). I decided to do a review of all the products in one post and also do a makeup look using them.


First off I thought we should get the bad part behind us... there was one product that left me really unimpressed - Amazing Lengths clear mascara. When I got this product I wasn't quite sure what to do with it really - a clear mascara? Still, I decided to try it out and see how it works, if it works. Unfortunately it turned out it doesn't really do much. It is what is says - a clear mascara and that's all. I tired using it on it's own or before applying regular mascara and there was absolutely no effect to my lashes, they looked exactly the same, just coated with a clear 'gel'. I guess you could use this as a brow gel/mascara, but it isn't marketed for that. All in all a big thumbs down for this product.




And then came the other products... First I decided to try out the Baked bronzer (I got it in the shade Bronzed Fame, but you can get in 3 other shades as well). I immediately loved the way it looked (I really like baked bronzers/blushes/eyehadows, especially those with a 'marble' effect to them, they just look so pretty), but I wasn't too sure how it would preform - some times baked products can be a bit more powdery/crumbly and can have poorer pigmentation. And with the marble effect you sometimes don't really know what color/shade you'll end up with after swirling your brush around in the product.

Thankfully this bronzer turned out really nicely on my skin. It is a tiny bit too orange for my liking (I prefer using bronzers that are a really neutral brown color and can be used for contouring as well as bronzing up the skin), but as I said it turned out great on my skin and blended out beautifully so I definitely didn't end up looking like and 'ompa-lumpa'. :) It had great staying power and stayed on my face practically till the end of the day when I took my makeup off. A lovely product! :)





The next product I got my hands on was the Amazing Lip Gloss in the shade Coral. This is a wonderful lip gloss that smells great - sweet, vanilla like. Consistency and quality wise it's your typical lip gloss - it gives a beautiful shine to your lips, stays on for about an hour and like most lip glosses, it is sticky so yes, your hair will stick to it. :) I myself don't mind that too much (I mean, I hate it when my hair sticks to my lips, but I don't expect lip glosses to be the same as lipsticks). 

I like wearing this on its own or over a lipstick in basically any shade since this lip gloss is pretty clear (even though it looks like it would be an orange/coral color). It has beautiful multi-colored shimmer in it that isn't really that noticeable, but gives a lovely, subtle 'sparkle' to your lips.






Last but certainly not least was the lipstick. I got the shade Passion which looks like a dark, almost oxblood shade, but turns out lighter on the lips - a true, neutral red in my eyes. Really pretty! This lipstick was probably the most surprising product out of all of them, I really didn't expect it to be so pigmented, so easy to apply and last for such a long time. At first it seemed a bit mediocre in the bullet and it looked like it was going to be really drying and hard to apply, but actually it turned out to be beautiful - it applied smoothly and even though I used a lip liner (as I do with all my red lipsticks), I could manage to apply it quite nicely without one as well. :) 

The staying power was probably the most impressive aspect of it - again, even though I used a lip liner to line and fill in my lips, that couldn't have been the only reason the lipstick lasted on me for almost 7 hours (and I ate and drank in between quite a few times). It was also pretty hard to remove at the end of the day, because it really stained my lips. :) A wonderful lipstick for such a great price!






So, as I said, I decided to do a makeup look using these products, so you could see how they actually look on me. The first look I did was a more natural one - with nude/natural lips, wearing only the lip gloss in Coral, along with the bronzer (and other face makeup of course). :)





And here's the more 'dramatic' version, wearing the lipstick in Passion. :) I actually really like both looks. What's your favorite?






You can find all these products and more on Ličila.si at amazing prices. These were my first products from Makeup Revolution so I can't say much about the brand, but so far it seems to me like you're getting some really nice makeup for a very affordable price with them. Also, I was very happy with the packaging - everything looks and feels nice and sturdy. I'm very intrigued and I wouldn't mind trying out more products from them.

What are your thoughts on these products? Have you tried anything from Makeup Revolution, what are your first impressions? :)

  1. Passion izgleda najs :) Saj ponavadi je tako, da so rdeči odtenki od praktično vsake znamke najboljši v kolekciji. Pri rdečih odtenkih je skoraj težko falit formulo :)
    Meni se pa zdijo embalaže preveč cheap kvalitete, še posebej šminke in glosi v primerjavi z drugimi znamkami v isteh cenovnem rangu.

    1. Res je lep odtenek! :)

      Meni je embalaža čisto všeč, ker pač za to ceno res ne pričakujem veliko. Je pa res, da nisem nič sprobavala od MUA in podobnih firm, da bi lahko primerjala...

  2. Bronzer in lip gloss sta mi všeč:) Zaradi otenkov. Jaz bi verjetno bronzer uporabljala kar kot blush:). Jaz tudi obožuje vse kar je baked, tudi zato ker se izjemno dolgo porablja:)

    1. Mogoče bom pa tudi jaz probala bronzer kot blush uporabit, čeprav imam raje pink blushe (ker imam tako tudi naravno obarvana lička). :)

      Drugače pa meni baked izdelki čudovito zgledajo, mi je pa bolj všeč, če lahko nekaj hitro porabim in potem novo kupim, kot pa če mi dolgo traja (ker se tako ali tako ne mažem vsak dan). :D

  3. Imam eno šminko, je še nisem testirala na dolgi rok, odtenka ne vem na pamet, jo imam nekje zakopano v torbici, pa se mi trenutno ne da it pogledat, je pa res presenetljivo pigmentirana in lepo mazljiva, čeprav je bolj svetla... ;)

    Pa dve paletki ravno probavam, Iconic 3 pa Romantic Smoked, nista slabi, obstojnost mogoče slabša, ampak mi senčke skoraj nič ne gredo v gubo, mogoče malo zbledijo čez čas, drugače pa so odtenki čudoviti, tudi blendanje je enostavno :).. Mi ni žal, da sem testirala... tale tvoja šminka pa izgleda fantastična!

    1. Ja, šminka me je res presenetila. :) Njihove paletke mi sicer izgledajo zelo zanimivo in bi jih z veseljem sprobala, ampak dvomim, da bi me navdušile toliko, da bi jih enačila z mojimi Naked paletka (kot to počnejo na veliko blogih).

  4. Meni je zelo všeč njihov cream blush, šminka mi je bila tudi ok, nad senčkami in maskaro sem bila pa razočarana. Sploh maskara je čisto brez vezna. Glede na vse poste, ki sem jih prebrala, zgleda da so vse takšne...

    1. Cream blush bi tudi jaz rada sprobala ja... No, saj, sem si kar mislila, da senčke sigurno niso tako zelo dobre kvalitete kot vidim veliko blogerk pisat. :) Sem na parih tujih blogih zdaj že videla kako primerjajo swatche od Makeup Revolution paletk s swatchi Naked paletk in so kao od Makeup Revolution še boljši oz. bolj pigmentirani... :P
