Hi everyone, I hope your all having a lovely bank holiday weekend! I've actually been so exited to get this post up for you today because as a lot of you know I love lipsticks! Recently I have been obsessed with lip liners and finding the perfect shades to match my favourite lipsticks. Now that I've started lining my lips (Thanks Kylie Jenner) I can't stop and my lips don't look nearly as full without it.
Whilst I've made it my own personal mission to find those must having winning lip liners, I was beyond excited to hear that one of my favourite makeup brands Makeup Revolution have released eight gorgeous lip liners of their own and I was lucky enough to get my hands on them - Cue excitement!! I'm sure you all know by now but some of my favourite lipsticks are from Makeup Revolution (Ken Will Want Me - I'm looking at you!) Its great that Makeup Revolution have not only brought out some amazing shades to wear with your favourite lipsticks, but liners that will also match some of their lipsticks perfectly.
Before I go into detail as to why I love each shade I think it's important to go over why these lip liners are so fantastic. First of all I love the design of them, the pencils are coloured to match the exact shade of the liner which makes it easy to grab first thing in the morning. Secondly the pencil sharper on the lid of the pencil is just genius! There is nothing worst that using a blunt pencil, so it's really handy having one of the top of the lid.
As for the quality of the lip liners, I can honestly say I'm amazed especially as they only cost £1.00 each - Such a bargain. Each lip liner is fairly creamy, super pigmented and isn't too drying on your lips either. This combination makes the lip liners so good as they can be worn just to draw the outline of your lips or be worn all over the lip.
Starting with the lightest shades in the collection, 'The One' and "Nearly Naked' are not shades that I would want to wear all over my lips as they are incredibly light. The One is the only nude lip liner in the collection and it really is a pale nude and works great with all my light toned nudes, especially Mac's Honeylove. I really love that Makeup Revolution already have a nude toned lipstick called 'The One' which is the exact same shade as this liner, these two together really do make the perfect nude lip. The light pink shade (bottom) is called 'Nearly Naked'. I've not used this yet as it's such a pale milky pink, it almost looks white. I don't wear lipsticks this light so I would have to say it's my least favourite, however for such a light shade its incredibly pigmented.
The next two shades are what I would call the girly girl pinks and they are the perfect liners to match any pretty girl pink lipsticks in your collection. The top picture shows off 'Baby Pink' and the name for this lipliner describes the shade perfectly, it really is such a soft pink. The bottom picture is 'Soft Pink' which is probably one of my favourites in the collection as it's such a soft blue toned pink and works with so many different lipsticks, especially Mac's chatterbox.
Another two lipliners which really stand out for me in the collection are 'Bold Pink' (top) and 'Cherry Red' (bottom). These two lipliners are stunning and look amazing on, especially Cherry Red. I would describe 'Cherry Red' as a bright pink fuchsia and it looks so gorgeous on, it reminds me a little bit of Mac's Impassioned. As for 'Bold Pink' again the name describes this shade perfectly, it's a really fun vibrant bubblegum pink with blue undertones. I have a lot of lipsticks in these two colours so I know I'm going to get so much use out of these liners.
The darkest shades in the collection are 'Rebel' (top) and 'Vamp' (bottom). I have to say it's so nice to be able to add some darker pink/purple toned lip liners to my collection. I think it's always best to use a lip liner with darker lipstick and these two shades are so perfect, I know I'm going to be able to pair them with so many lipsticks. Rebel is a deep pinky purple shade and it reminds me a little bit of Mac's rebel. I don't own it (yet) but I think if you did this would pair beautifully with it. As for 'Vamp' OMG it's gorgeous! During winter I love wearing berry toned lipsticks so Vamp I'm sure will come in handy and become a favourite towards the end of the year.
As you can see these amazing lip liners are amazing! I'm so pleased Makeup revolution finally released them as they have so many lipcticks, it's great to be able to find the matching lipliners to some of the shades. I really hope that MR add a few reds, corals and oranges to the collection too as I feel it's missing these and I do love wearing a red lip! Like I said earlier the quality of these liners are amazing and for £1.00 you can't go wrong!
I would love to know what your thoughts are on these lip liners? What shades will you be picking up? Let me know in the comments below.
Lots of Love
