Makeup Revolution Give Me Power Lipstick

Would you like 1 piece of lip product to produce 5 different effects on your lips?

eye-lipstick-collection-makeup-revolution

It’s easy to fall in love with Makeup Revolution. After trying out its Eyeshadow Palette in Acid Brights and Lipstick, I was hungry for more.

I have 6 lip products in my cosmetic bag, which includes 5 lip colors and 1 lip balm. I love my lipsticks and I enjoy changing lip colors through the day. I’m not a huge fan of lip glosses until I’ve tried Dior Addict last year. And now, another lip gloss item has caught my attention. This one’s even more interesting as it combines lipstick and lip gloss in 1 stick.

Price: RM24.00
Give your lips real power, a duo lipstick and lipgloss in one!
A satin matte lipstick in a moisturising formula and a super slick lipgloss with a hint of shimmer. Wear the lipstick or wear the lipgloss or wear the lipgloss over the lipstick!

This lipstick comes in a dual end tube: 1 end has the satin matte lipstick and 1 end has the lip gloss. The tube is protected with plastic and comes with an easy-tear seal.

The shade of this color, Everything’s Alright, is a peach-orange tone. Texture allows easy application and you can even achieve 6 different color shade by layering and combining the 2 products!

From top: Lip gloss, 1 layer lipstick, 2 layer lipstick

From top: Lip gloss, 1 layer lipstick topped with lip gloss, 2 layer lipstick topped with lip gloss

The only challenge I experienced is application of the lip color with the length of this tube. Because of its length, the end of the tube cannot really rest inside your hand while applying the lipstick. As for the lip gloss, there is no problem at all.


And here are my 2 combinations! On the left is plain lip color and on the right is color plus lip gloss. So this means I now have 7 lip products in my cosmetic bag!
