Makeup Revolution #liphug in Save Me From Yourself, To Get Lucky & I Am Ready

Hello!


Today I'm reviewing 3 #liphugs that I bought in my Makeup Revolution haul, a nude shade called Save Me From Yourself, a deep rose called To Get Lucky, and a red called I Am Ready. I've been wanting to try these for so long, and I'm so glad I did. At only £2.50 each, and dupes for many high-end formulas and colours, I want all 20 shades!





I really like the packaging of these, they remind me of the Bobbi Brown Creamy Lip Colour packaging, except I prefer the Makeup Revolution packaging as I love the gold inner casing. I think some of them (or all of them) have been named after songs or song lyrics, like Daft Punk's "To Get Lucky" and I recently heard the words "save me from yourself" in a song although I can't remember the artist. The one thing that does bother me, although fairly irrelevant, is the bad grammar on the labelling - as the shades are names they should start with capitals! Oh well, #grammarpolice4life. :)

The product itself is wonderful, it's very pigmented and so creamy with a hint of gloss, it applies to lips perfectly.
Save Me From Yourself is very much a caramel nude, it reminds me of my Max Factor Colour Elixir, but warmer. I read on Magpie Jasmine that this is also a perfect dupe for MAC Jubilee (lustre)!
To Get Lucky is lovely dark rose shade, it's different from a lot of shades I own which is why I love it so much, it's the colour I was hoping for when I ordered!
I Am Ready is a gorgeous, easy-to-wear day-to-day red. As Lip Hugs have a balmy texture, it gives it a more casual feel. The perfect way to rock a red lip if casual red lips make you feel a bit nervous!
I have also discovered that layering this over lip balm gives it a completely different look and feel, it's like having a 2-in-1 lipstick! A thicker more opaque lipstick option, and a sheerer glossier option.

I love these lipsticks, and I'm definitely picking some more up in the future.
Have you tried these? Would love to read some reviews!
