The Makeup Revolution Salvation Lip Lacquers have been around for a little while now, so some of you are probably familiar with its rich intense and ultra glossy formula. If you've had some of these lip lacquers in your collection, you'll be pleased to know that Makeup Revolution have added four new shades to the line and they are quite simply gorgeous.
First of all what I really love about these lip lacquers has to be that they feel so lovely on your lips. Often a worry with having a lip product so glossy and shiny is that it can be sometimes sticky. However as shiny as these are, they're not really sticky and make such a comfortable wear. The only time I notice any stickiness is when I get that dreaded bit of long hair which has landed onto my lips because of the wind - Haven't we all been there? For more of a lip gloss product, they actually keep my lips pretty hydrated and its really nice wearing them this time of year, especially when my lips are prone to getting dry.
I absolutely love the smell of these lip lacquers, whilst they're not overpowering in scent, you do get a lovely warm vanilla smell coming though which is always great when applying them. The best thing about them though has to be the colour payout - Oh my gosh guys, the colour you get when using these is just amazing. Whilst they are not totally opaque like the Lip Lava's that I reviewed the other week (here) they are not as sheer as a gloss, which is great if you're not completely great with wearing super bright colours. You can definitely build up the intensity of these lip lacquers which is great.
As for lasting time, the gloss won't last hours on end, which is to be expected for such a glossy formula. Even though the gloss fades, the colour definitely doesn't and as wear time goes on you're still left with a lovely stain that has faded evenly.
Left to Right - Depravity, Rebel, Barley There & Paparazzi
Depravity is probably the most daring shade out of the new releases in this collection just because it's such a bold bright lilac shade. It's definitely one of those perfect colours if you're looking to make a statement lip. I find that this lilac has a slight grey undertone to it though, which my camera doesn't pick up - So if you love wearing cool toned eye shadows, especially silvers or greys this lip lacquer will work amazingly with it.
Out of all the shades, Rebel has to be my favourite and probably the lip lacquer I'm getting the most wear out of. Whilst it's still winter I'm still making the most out of the berry red lip and Rebel really is the perfect shade. I would describe it as a cool toned berry shade that has pink tones to it. It actually reminds me a little bit if MAC's Rebel just a lot more glossier.
Barley There is the nude of the group and I love it. I'm a little obsessed with nude shades at the moment, which is quite unlike me as I'm normally one to choose bright colours all the time. Barley There is the perfect brown toned nude that really gives you that 'your lips, but better' look. It's great for everyday and really wearable. If you're looking for something subtle in terms of colour, but something with great shine, Barley There will be perfect for you.
Paparazzi is that stunningly bright hot pink shade that just screams out summer and I know it's one of those shades I'll reaching for non stop when that time of year comes around. I love how this bright barbie pink lip lacquer has blue undertones to it, so it does that little trick of making your teeth look a lot whiter too. Combined that and a tan and oh my gosh, you will look amazing!
So there you have it, the new Salvation Intense Lacquer shades! Beautiful don't you think? If your planning on adding any of these to your collection, let me know in the comments below.
Lots of Love
