New Lipsticks!

Hi guys, I'm sorry it's been a while again but today I decided to write a beauty post, since I haven't in a while. I went to Superdrug (a drugstore in the UK) to buy new dry shampoo and saw bargain priced lipsticks for £1 each. The brands were MUA and Revolution and I knew I had to grab some so I got 1 from MUA and 2 from Revolution. So I shall be doing some swatches and first impressions of them today!

So the first one is called Rebel With Cause by Revolution
Initially, I thought "Oh god this isn't going to be very pigmented" because when I swatched it on my hand with one swipe, it was quite sheer. But once I put it on my lips, I fell in love. The texture is perfectly smooth and so far it is one of few lipsticks that don't feel drying on my lips without the use of a lip balm. I shall even insert a picture here of how it looked on me because I loved it so much that I wore it out, when I literally only went out to go shopping with my mom haha.
As you can see from this picture and the lip swatch above, the colour is quite bright but I still see it as a "Vamp" colour in some ways. It is a lot brighter than how it looks in the bullet which is what shocked me but I was pleasantly shocked. 

The next lipstick is 100% Vamp also from Revolution. 
Now in the bullet, it looks pretty much like a black lipstick but once it's on your lips, it has more of a black cherry vibe to it. Now this one, I didn't like as much just because it took around 2-3 coats to get it to the colour in the lip swatch. But it is still a pretty colour and I do see myself hopefully wearing it once Autumn hits us a bit more. 

The last one is Wild Berry from Make Up Academy.
This is a matte lipstick and it was the most problematic out of the three. I don't typically have issues with mattes as long as my lips are smooth! And for once, they were yet I don't know why it didn't glide on the smoothest nor did it feel all that nice. So I don't know how often I'll be wearing it but it is a really nice colour so I hope I can get used to the way it feels.

And that is all for today my beauties. I hope you enjoyed this post and do let me know if you like these kind of posts but for now, I bid you goodnight (or good morning or good afternoon). Talk to you all soon :) xoxo
