I am surely not much of a lip gloss person, but when lips are dry, parched and uncomfortable for days, a nice moisturizing lip gloss feels better over lipsticks. I have pigmented lips, so, I prefer going with coverage provided by lipsticks or lip creams; HD lip glosses like MUA Intense Kisses and Maybelline Lip Elixirs are definitely an exception and open up a new chapter in lip gloss bracket.
Makeup Revolution London launched Amazing Lip Gloss series, in six shades, but not many reviews and swatches are available online, yet. I picked up the shade ‘Hot’ and let’s have a look at it.
Highly pigmented and high shine lip gloss, you will be amazed at the quality for the amazing value of just £1 each! Available in 6 wearable shades which makes your lips look fuller and glossy.
Revolution tip: Wear over lipstick for a more intense colour with a gloss finish.
$3 excluding shipping & taxes.
My Experience with Makeup Revolution London Hot Amazing Lip Gloss:
Packaging: This lip gloss comes in a tall, cylindrical tube and contains a significant amount of product. Even with golden prints and a black screw cap that closes tight, it is light weight and travel safe. Though, the packaging isn’t unique, I still like it.
Texture, Consistency and Finish: Makeup Revolution London Amazing Lip Gloss has the ideal consistency. It isn’t too thick or sticky. It glides over lips perfectly, like butter, without feeling sticky. It feels light weight on lips is infused with a sweet, yet, not over powering fruity fragrance. The fragrance doesn’t stay for long after application and vanishes within a couple of minutes.
The lip gloss is really hydrating and has a balmy feel. It soothes out dry, uncomfortable and parched lips perfectly. It contains really minute sparkles of micro size which reflect multi-color light, adding lustre and shine. But, they are so tiny that they just add shine; not shimmery effect to lips and are only visible individually when you take a closer look. The lip gloss in itself is glazy and provides high shine to lips.
Colour and Pigmentation: Hot is a true red shade in tube, but comes out to be sheer red when applied. It’s a sheer lip gloss actually and the claim of high pigmentation is not true. The sheer coverage doesn’t show the red color on pigmented lips. However, naturally pink lips will rock this shade. The coverage is nearly zero, but the shine it provides is extraordinary. Though, the brand claims it to be highly pigmented, I suggest you to top it over a lipstick. Overall, those looking for glossy shine on lips or a causal look will love this product.
Longevity and Transferability: Luckily, it doesn’t transfer at all. The pigmentation is average and coverage is sheer, but the glossy effect and moisturized feel, both are long lasting. The glossy shine stays for good four hours and the lips feel hydrated even after a full meal, which I had not expected at all from this product and I am surprised. Let’s sum it up:

Would I Repurchase/Recommend of Makeup Revolution London Hot Amazing Lip Gloss?
Though, I love this product, I would like to try out other products next time. ‘Hot’ was the darkest shade in the range, and when it is such sheer lip gloss, others might do nothing for my pigmented lips. I will only recommend it to non-pigmented lips or to those who want a lip gloss to top over matte lipsticks.
