Makeup Revolution £1 Lipstick in The One

Hello!

On one of my more recent shopping trips I ended up picking this bad boy up. I try so hard to not go into Superdrug when I'm in town as I just never leave empty handed, but after accidentally falling *ahem* into Superdrug again, I ended up leaving with my newest lipstick.

Now, I've been wanting a proper nude for some time. I do love my Makeup Revolution #happylips in Love Nude (see post here), but I've been wanting to try a true nude to see if I could pull it off - and what better way than trying with a £1 lipstick?

In all honesty, I wasn't expecting much from this and the main reason is that MUA's £1 lipsticks really did nothing for me. However, I've been pleasantly surprised. 

The packaging is just a simple black plastic bullet that has a clear plastic end so you can see the shade. Although it doesn't look the best, it certainly is handy when you're quickly rummaging through your makeup bag, it makes finding your colour so easy!


The product itself is what I'm really impressed with. I was expecting a fairly dry formula but I couldn't be more wrong. It is so creamy and so pigmented. It applies like an absolute dream. As it is so pigmented, I do have to perfect it a little after application as it does make me look like I've smeared foundation over my lips to start, but after a blot and some gentle patting (obviously an industry term), it turns into a perfect nude.


It lasts for a decent amount of time without eating or drinking, I did find it sank into the creases of my lips, but nothing overly noticeable, I could deal with it without feeling conscious.

Overall, another purchase from Makeup Revolution that I'm happy with and that I'll be recommending!
