I've had these Makeup Revolution liphugs for quite a while now, but I wasn't very impressed with them initially. So I kinda forgot about them and left them in the bottom of a drawer. I'm trying to make a point of using all my makeup, so I decided to give these another chance. This will be a pretty mixed review though, just so you know.
Price: about $3,75 so very affordable.
Packaging: I do enjoy this type of lipstick form over the traditional bullet. I find it a lot easier to use and more aesthetically pleasing. The gold lettering on the packaging will rub off with use, wich is a bit of a pet peeve for me. But The color name is on a sticker in the bottom, so you will still be able to see the color name.
I do really enjoy how hydrating and creamy these liphugs are. Thet feel amazing on the lips, and remind me a bit of a more pigmented version of the Revlon lip butters. But I'm not a fan of the scent. It's not an offensive scent at all, it's a little bit coconutty, it reminds me of the MUA lipsticks that I don't really like either. The scent just reminds me of bad lipsticks I have tried in the past, so that's why I don't care for the scent. Another thing is the taste. This does taste like perfume, wich is another of my pet peeves.
Top: I wasn't mixed up Bottom: Love can set you free
I do have to say that the pigmentation is really nice and the texture is amazing. I love how these feel onn the lips. These are not going to last very long on your lips, because of all the creamyness. But If you don't mind reapplying, then it's not going to be a big deal breaker.
So I'm not completely sold on these lipsticks. They feel good and pigmentation is great. But the scent and taste puts me off a bit. They are certainly very affordable and I don't think these feel like cheap lipstick at all. They really aren't bad, but they are not my favorites either. So I would say, pick one up if you think you might like it and don't mind the taste. But if you hate perfume-tasting lippies, just skip these.
