Before Christmas I was lucky enough to try out and test the gorgeous new Makeup Revolution Ultra Velour Lip Creams, as you all know I love my lipsticks, especially ones that leave a velvety matt finish and are highly pigmented. Just looking at these, I knew immediately that these lip creams would be right up my street. I seriously think Makeup Revolution can do no wrong, they just continuously keep surprising us with new beauty collections and I have to say that the release of the 'Ultra Velour Lip Creams' have been some of my favourite.
As the name suggests, these lip creams have a gorgeous cream like velvet texture to them and leave a stunning semi matte finish on your lips. However because these lipsticks have this rich cream formula, they don't dry your lips out in anyway and almost gives the combined look of a wet lipstick too. These lip creams are totally different to the other lip creams that I've tried before, and they really do give that illusion of having 'velvet' lips. You will see from the swatches that these lipsticks are highly pigmented and look amazing on.
Finding the perfect natural nude shade can be pretty difficult, but if your on the hunt for a nude that creates that 'your lips but better' look then I would definitely suggest you pick up 'Their Eyes Can't Find Us'. This shade is just so perfect for everyday wear, it works with every makeup look and is perfect for those minimal makeup days. What I really love about this is how understated it is and it gives you a perfect healthy pout without looking as though you've tried too hard.
For me the perfect nude is a rosy pink toned one and 'Can't we just make love instead' has that perfect pink undertone to it. Wearing this lipstick just makes my lips look really full and creates that perfect pout. If you were to pick up any of the Ultra Velour Lip Creams, this is the one that I would recommend you pop in your basket, its just gorgeous and will suit everyone,
Out of all the shades in the Ultra Velour collection, 'move your mouth forever' was probably the shade I was the least excited about as its extremely light and I think you have to have the right skin tone to pull it off, you fair skinned girls I'm looking at you! Whilst the shade is a bit too light for my all year round tanned skin, I do think that this is a stunning nude, and if angels were to leave behind kisses, they would be in this colour and shade - it really is beautiful.
Deep berry red toned lipsticks for me were so last season and since the new year began I've loved switching my lipsticks around. A great way to make a statement with your lipstick is to go purple! I always think that a purple lipstick is a little more daring and is a great way to shakeup your makeup look. Pink toned purples are always a great to have in your collection and 'Not one for playing games' is one of the most stunning purples I have come across, I love wearing it and get nothing but compliments every time that I do. This lip cream is not too dark, no way near boring and instantly livens up you're makeup look, I love it.
Again when it comes to the purple shades in the Ultra Velour collection, Makeup Revolution have gotten it spot on; 'All I think about is you' is the perfect plum shade that has pink berry undertones to it and it is seriously stunning. I think this lipstick is the perfect transitional colour from winter to spring, it's one of those shades that would never get bored of wearing and looks flattering on so many skin tones.
Every lipstick collection needs a classic pillar box red and the Ultra Velour collection has theirs with 'you're not the best, you're not the last'. I wore this colour non stop over the Christmas period, which is really surprising for me as I don't usually suit this shade of red. I would describe this red as a 'true' shade of red with slight orange undertones to it, making it perfect for all year round - It's bold, fun, vibrant and beautiful.
Out of all the swatches that you see in this post 'say yes, it's what we do best' is probably that one shade that hasn't photographed true to colour. In real life its actually a lot darker and is more of a brick red with slight brown tones to it. I find this to be such a unique shade of red, and its so refreshing to find something a little different. It's definitely more of a vampy red, so if you love your lips dark, you'll want to add this to your collection.
It's pretty obvious to you all that I love my lipstick, but its pink lipstick that is really the way to my heart, which I think is only natural given that I'm a total girly girl. Coral shades are such a perfect spring colour and 'don't bring me down' is one of those perfect girly coral shades - This one is such a vibrant pink and although its bright its really wearable and looks gorgeous on.
If you love your neon lipsticks, then I can promise you you'll adore 'sweet boy, with a big mouth'. This bright bubblegum pink shade of lipstick seriously makes a statement; It's one of those shades that are really fun to wear and will look amazing with a tan. This lipstick has a really light lilac/blue notes to it which really makes it different to anything else in my collection, its beautiful.
Last, but by no means least, completing the Ultra Velour collection has to be the shade 'what will it take to make you want me' which is possibly my favourite shade in the entire range. This lipstick is neon bright, its the perfect barbie pink shade and it looks stunning on. When summer is in full swing I know I'll be reaching for this daily. This hot pink has blue tones to it, which is great if your wanting to give to appearance of whiter teeth and it will work perfectly from day to evening. If there is one lip cream that you need to pick up, I would definitely recommend this one.
If you couldn't tell already I'm a huge fan of the Makeup Revolution Ultra Velour lip creams, the colour payout is just amazing, they wear beautifully on your lips, the doe foot applicator makes for a really easy application and not to mention they all smell like caramel which makes applying them dreamy. If your looking to introduce some new shades into your lipstick collection I can't recommend these enough.
If you've tried any of these lip creams, be sure to let me know in the comments below which one is your favourite.
Lots of Love
