Recently I had done a huge shopping haul for an upcoming occasion. And, when it comes to shopping for a party, how could I not buy a red lipstick! These days, I am obsessed with red and orange lipsticks. Let’s move on to the review.
What could make your lips happier? A shot of intense colour in the core surrounded by the comfort and hydration or Argan Oil outer. Get your lips happy!
Revolution tip: Apply more than once to spread the colour more evenly.
INR 450 for 3g of products. (I got it for 229)
My Experience with Makeup Revolution #happylips Love Red! Amazing Care Lipstick:
I love red lipsticks, and still have not been able to find that perfect red for myself. This lipstick is something I couldn’t resist though. It’s nothing like anything I’ve ever tried before this lipstick. I fell in love with this lipstick. The concept is pretty cool.
The Makeup Revolution Amazing Care Lipstick comes with a beautiful, metallic cardboard box. All the details are printed on the box very nicely. The actual lipstick comes in a black packaging with a clear transparent lid as you can see the shade. Packaging is very sturdy and handy also. Box is really a gorgeous one, but black packaging is very common.
The Makeup Revolution Amazing Care Lipstick in LOVE RED! comes in a dual core style. The inner core of this lipstick contains the actual red color and the outer core contains the shinny glossy Vaseline type clear look. The combination of this dual core creates an amazing look. Color looks like a true red in the bullet, but it is again not a perfect red for me! Yes, it is a very light red shade with a touch of pink. Actually, it is more of a coral shade.
I would definitely say that it is a beautiful color. It looks so so so pretty on lips. Though it is not the pure red color, I still love this shade. It gives a nice shine on lips. My lips look healthier and softer. It is an absolutely glossy lipstick with a cute coral shade. This one just brightens up my complexion. I think it goes with all types of dresses, whatever makeup look or outfit you’re wearing.
The lipstick comes with a glossy effect. I absolutely adore this lipstick because it is as hydrating as a chapstick. I am actually really surprised by the quality. The lipstick is packed with hydrating goodness. There is a clear layer of Argan Oil which you can visibly see.
The actual outer core provides the nourishing part. I can feel my lips become soft and it makes my lips smooth. It is a really great product for dry and chapped lip. Once applied, the lipstick feels more like a lip balm, it’s smooth and not too thick or sticky which is nice. It doesn’t settle into the fine lines at all. I love how moisturizing it is!
Now, the color can be built up, but still won’t match the intensity of the bullet. I was a bit disappointed that it is quite difficult to achieve good pigmentation due to the design of this lipstick. I have found out that the color element runs out quicker than the Argan Oil layer. One swipe can only provide a sheer red gloss. But, after 3-4 swipes, you can get the proper color. When I swatch it in vertical motion on my hand, no colors comes off.
The color of the lipstick looks just like a lip balm. But, when I swatch in a horizontal motion only two swipe gives a nice beautiful color. It doesn’t last long. I can feel some greasiness when I sweat a lot. It hardly stays for 2-3 hours maximum on my lips. It transfers a lot too. In fact, it transfers everywhere. I hate this part! Almost nothing is left on my lips after a meal. The concept of this lipstick is great, but I feel as a product, it disappoints!
