Make Up Revolution’s Cheek & Lip Sticks

A couple of weeks ago, I had a major Make up Revolution blusher haul. These lip and cheek sticks were the first I started trying out, as they’re something different to the usual powder blushers that I use.

Firstly, these sticks are just great when you’re out an about. Want to touch up your blusher without having to carry a blush brush around? Want a pop of colours on your lips too? Just pop these in your handbag, top up using your fingers and you’re good to go.

I got four of these to try out: Malibu, Dream, Rush and Matte Dream.

Packaging: All these come in a glossy black tube stick that has a cap on top and twists the product up or down from the bottom.

Texture: These are all extremely creamy and hydrating. The glide on easily and also seem to be water resistant which is great is you’re using these as a blush on a very hot day. That being said, they cannot be left in the heat for long as they’ll melt slightly and get all messy (as seen in the last photograph!)

Application: The application of these could not be any easier. Whether using a brush, or just your fingers, the product can easily be applied quickly and effortlessly.

Cost: These sell for £5.00 each on the Make Up Revolution website, which is quite well priced for such a product. However, you can get entire palettes with 8 colours for just £1 more from the same site!

Verdict: These are quite nice but not really my favourite from the MR brand.

As a lip product, these do not work for me. As they’re so creamy, they end up forming a white line around the inner part of the lip which I hate, and they are also quite shimmery which is not what I like on my lips. The matte formula is much better but there is still the issue with creases and lines showing through.

However, as a blush, these work very nicely and are great for carrying around with you. They’re easily buildable and give a very pretty, subtle glow to the skin whether applied with your fingers, a stippling brush or a sponge. There’s quite a good choice of colour available to suit most skin tones and the website offers photo swatches that are quite close to the true colour. At just £5 each, you can’t really go wrong!

  1. These look amazing, I think they were the review I was must looking forward to from your recent haul. Love the colors in the swatches, but I can imagine they won’t work as well as a lippy.

    Matte Dream looks like such a lovely shade! I think I would love that one! These are very different looking and I’ve never tried anything like them before. Thanks for sharing and for the review! 🙂 xo
