Makeup Revolution #happylips in Love Nude


It's the third of four Makeup Revolution reviews today and I'm reviewing #happylips, which is a super hydrating, glossy finish lipstick.

I'm always on the look out for nude/everyday shades as I'm generally more casual than dressed up, so when I saw Love Nude on the shelf I took a chance and bought it. There was no testers as my Superdrug either didn't have any or someone stole them (hardly surprising as the testers are a whole palette in full packaging, not stuck down etc) so this was a bit of a surprise colour for me.

The outer packaging I actually really like, a rose gold box with black writing with "Revolution" clearly written. I think I was probably drawn to this than their other lip products due to the rose gold packaging - anything rose gold I just have to check out!
The actual lipstick tube is just standard plain black tube, very similar to the MUA ones. Not overly exciting, but again I never expect too much from the more budget brands, I'm happy as long as the product is good!

Moving on to the actual product... I actually really like this. The nude shade is literally the perfect nude for me, a "my lips but better" shade. I need a slightly pink nude as the real nudes just do not suit me as I have naturally pigmented lips plus I just look like I've smeared concealer all over my lips! So if you're looking for a true nude and not a pink-toned one, this probably isn't for you. The outer layer is a generous amount of hydrating Argan Oil. This is where the product really wins for me.
When I first saw these #happylips, I just assumed that it would be a horrible almost plastic outer layer of pretend lip balm, but how wrong I was! I keep forgetting that these more affordable brands are seriously stepping up their game. It completely hydrates my lips and, combined with the gorgeous nude colour, makes my lips look perfect.

The one thing I will point out is that the colour doesn't last for a long time, especially after eating and drinking (it disappears totally), but I personally expected this as this generally happens with glossier/balm type products.

I am super impressed with these, I really want to try out some more shades. They have a lovely looking pink and red!
Have you tried these yet?
