Now I’m not going to throw a curve ball and publicly admit to wearing green lipstick, but this new collection of colour couldn’t have landed at a better time of year. Makeup Revolution continue to baffle me, launching good quality cosmetics at bonkers prices – each one of these lipsticks will set you back only a quid. One pound. WHAT? Considering their price point you’d expect them to drag and be incredibly uncomfortable on the lips, but they’re actually smooth and full of lubrication; the bullets provide an awesome pigment and make Halloween makeup a little cooler while incredibly affordable. Nobody wants to spend £16.50 on an Illamasqua lipstick that only gets used one night a year, so these provide a fun and cheap alternative that doesn’t scrimp on quality.
The colours include a blood red that is a stand-alone fab shade, as well as a ghoulish green that’s perfect for any witches this October 31st. The lighter purple shade is actually pretty wearable and a great alternative to the mauve shades that are on-trend this year, while the darker purple is surprisingly on-trend. The darkest shade is like a black-brown that isn’t my personal preference, but I can totally see the cool kids rocking it to the school disco come half term – as well as an abundance of spooky characters applying it to get the ‘dead’ look alongside their white face paint. When I first opened the lids I expected to hate this collection, but the more I look at it the more I think it’s fun and perfectly timed for spooky parties. At £1.00 each, you can afford to buy them all and have a play around with colour… You never know, the green may even make it’s way into November’s makeup bag and beyond. What do you think of this new collection?
The Makeup Revolution ‘Atomic‘ collection is available online, with all lipsticks costing £1.00 each.
