Lip products are probably the products I own the most of. I am a sucker for a good lipstick, beautiful colours and fab formulas! But a lot of the brands in my stash are quite high-end, with price tags to match. 

I've shared my thoughts on a couple of Makeup Revolution products recently; the budget-friendly £4 Redemption Essential Shimmers palette, which I adore and has become quite the summer favourite, as well as the Baked Highlighter in Pink Lights, which I wasn't such a fan of. As a budget-friendly brand that seems to be winning the hearts of beauty adorers all over the UK, I've been trying out a few more products from the range, including two lip products. One which packs quite a punch, the other I wouldn't miss if I didn't have it...

There's no denying £1 for a lipstick is a bargain! A super purse-friendly price and within anyone's budget, which is a great thing about Makeup Revolution - everyone can indulge in their products. Makeup Revolution describe their lipstick range as a must-have range of lipsticks with over 20 shades, a creamy formula and long-lasting colour. Always a lover of the classic nude lip, I've been trying the Makeup Revolution Amazing Lipstick in Treat (£1) A lovely apricot nude, Treat is a shade which would suit a whole variety of skin-tones, a perfect everyday wearable shade. The formula is super creamy, it feels light-weight when on, with a finish akin to MAC Luster lipsticks

Although I love the shade, I haven't fallen in love with Treat as a lipstick. A creamy formula is fab, keeping your lips from getting dry and uncomfortable, but this ultra creamy formula makes the shade just a touch too sheer for my liking and it needs to be really built up to achieve an opaque colour. I also find Treat doesn't last long on me at all, needing to reapply more often than I'd like. Although £1 is a fantastic price, I'm not sure I'd delve into other shades from the Amazing Lipstick range, as the formula just doesn't work for me.

The Makeup Revolution Salvation Velvet Lacquer in Keep Trying For You (£3) on the other hand, is a must-have! A gorgeous liquid lipstick that is truly opaque in colour and has a gorgeous creamy formula that's the perfect in between - not too thin, not too thick. Effortless to apply, one layer will give you a gorgeous deep colour which can be built up with a second layer for more intensity. The finish is matte, yet it doesn't feel drying or uncomfortable when on like many matte lip products can. The shade is actually gorgeous, a real bright cherry red, but with blue undertones that make Keep Trying For You the perfect red for any complexion. Lasting power we're talking all day long, very rarely needing to touch up and even lasting through food and drinks. It's a beauty, and at just £3, I definitely plan on trying some more shades from the range!
