It's been a long time since I did a Review post, so I'm back today with just that! I've been shopping a lot lately so I'm guilty of many many new purchases. This product, however, has been sitting in my makeup bag and I've been itching to test it out.
I ♡ Makeup Lip Geek
So the story behind these is that I ran into these by mistake -and what a wonderful mistake it was! I was ACTUALLY on the Boots website looking for the Herbal Essences Dry Shampoo and then one thing led to another and before I knew it, I was on Makeup Revolution website with these three beauties in my basket!
Just look at them! Would you be able to resist them?!
"We DO lips!
Serious LIP Colours in a Super Pigmented shades.
We are LIP GEEK, so we do the shades in a very obsessed way."
Now considering Makeup Revolution London is pretty new on the cosmetics scene, I was pleasantly surprised with these lipsticks.
The shades I chose were:
- Ken Will Want Me - A cool toned Barbie Pink.
This shade was more pigmented than I expected it to be. It applies very smooth and the texture is very creamy. It's almost buttery and so it is super moisturising. The only down side is that, due to the nature of the shade, it settles into fine lines on the lips and can cling on to chapped lips. It would be a good idea to exfoliate your lips and apply a lip balm before hand. However, make sure to blot the balm before applying the lipstick because the lipstick itself is very creamy and the last thing you want is a major land slide on your face!
- Cherry Bomb - A true Cherry Red with blue undertones.
A super pretty shade that would suit all skin tones. This was the most pigmented shade of the three that I bought - one swipe was enough to cover the lips. It has the same creamy texture but it didn't settle into my fine lines which was a big plus! It may require a Lip liner though.
- Barbie Is Jealous - A Hot Pink with blue undertones.
This was my favourite shade. It's hot enough to stand out yet subtle enough to be a wearable shade. It is suitable for all skin tones but it would make anyone with yellow, olive or golden undertones really glow! Creamy and smooth to apply, highly opaque and super moisturising.

Verdict: I really liked these lipsticks. They are unscented, which is a plus for those of you with a sensitivity to fragranced cosmetics. They are also super moisturising, comfortable to wear and have great pigmentation. However, they will probably require touch ups every 3 hours or so but I don't mind pulling one of these beauties out of my handbag haha! The packaging is stunning! The wide shade range is awesome too. The best part is that these little bullets retail for £2.99 which is an absolute bargain!
That's all my beauties! Give them and a go and let me know what you think!
