Makeup Revolution – Vamp Lipstick Collection Review

May 27, 2014


Everyone has been raving about Makeup Revolution and some of their more ‘quirkier’ products. After reading so many great reviews, I couldn’t help but pick a few things out for myself. One of the first things I threw into my virtual basket was the “Vamp Collection” lipsticks, a limited edition set of 3 colours which were £1 each or £2 when you bought the set. I also picked up two others, “Twist” and “Dare” which were only £1.


From Left to Right: Black Heart,  100%Vamp, Rebel With Cause, Dare and Twist

I couldn’t resist the lure of these reds and although the two dark shades are probably destined to live on my dressing table for the rest of eternity, rather than escorting me to gigs via my handbag I really wanted them.

The packaging was pretty generic for most of the cheaper high street brands, although I was pleased that each lipstick had a label with the shade on it, as sometimes you are left with either a number or nothing at all.

Both Black Heart and 100% Vamp both appeared much darker, but when swatched, were a lot brighter than I imagined. One of the more surprising shades was “Rebel With Cause” which turned out to be more of a dark Fuchsia colour rather than the blood red I had hoped for. My favourite by a long shot is “Twist”, the one I thought I would like least as it looked more on the orange side, but actually it’s a beautiful bright shimmery red and probably going to be one of my new “go to” red lipsticks. They all applied without issue and with some Micellar water, I finally managed to wipe away the colour, which gives me high hopes for wearing these on stage.

The verdict? I think Makeup Revolution is fast taking over the well loved MUA, with it’s quirky variety of colours and beautiful palettes. So keep your eyes peeled for my other upcoming Makeup Revolution Reviews. These shades are all available individually from the Makeup Revolution here for just £1 each.

Have you tried any products from Makeup Revolution? If so, we’d love to know your thoughts in the comments below.

Totally hellbent for makeup shades that are as grym and blackened as their name suggests

      They really are surprisingly glorious! We’ll keep that in mind for future competitions though, since we ship internationally :o) X

    Booooo! I don’t think they are doing the 5 together in the vamp collection on their site. It shows only 3 of the darkest colours though I could be very tempted to go Goth with 100% vamp ^_^

      Ah yeah, sorry I didn’t make that clear at all!!! The three are part of the vamp collection and the other two I just reviewed alongside them. I actually got all 5 for just £4 though, because I bought the vamp collection.
