There’s a lot of hype online about these lip kits, they’re said to rival the Kylie ones for a fraction of the price. I can only dream of owning official Kylie Cosmetics – they’re pricey, shipping tax is ridiculous and so is the wait for them. If I can find a decent dupe though, well then I’m happy. I have here the Makeup Revolution Retro Luxe Matte Lip Kit in the shade Echelon.
There are eight matte shades available currently – Echelon, Noble, Reign, Grandee, Royal, Regal, Glory and Magnificent.
Inside the sophisticated looking box you get a lip liner pencil and the liquid lipstick. The lipstick has a doe foot applicator – definitely my preferred applicator.
The liner pencil can be sharpened easily when it wears down. Just use a sharpener which is designed for makeup pencils. It’s also handy to pop in a small bag to top up your lip colour on the go.
The liner pencil is beautifully creamy and glides onto the lips with ease. It does wear down quite quickly, but as mentioned earlier, it’s easy to sharpen.
I used the pencil to line my lips only for this post. But today when I wore the product again I used it all over my lips and found the product stayed on very well because of this.
Here’s how the product looks on the lips – love it! –
Overall, I’m pretty chuffed with this kit. I really want to try some more shades as there are some gorgeous ones in the full range.
To be honest, I just adore anything Makeup Revolution do at the moment!
