My Experience with Makeup Revolution You’re Not The Best, You’re Not The Last Ultra Velour Lip Cream:
I really enjoy choosing my shades from this brand because they have the cutest names ever! I picked 2 of these to try them out.
Packaging: The lip cream comes in a very pretty looking rose gold coloured box with the name of the range and shade over it. It has this little window on it which lets us see the shade of the lip cream. This makes it really easy to spot some if you own a few of these. The lip cream comes in a regular packaging which is round and sturdy. The shade is easily available in the bottle and it is indeed very travel-friendly. The slanted wand is a perfect one which glides smoothly on my lips giving it a perfect shape.
Shade: The shade “You’re not the best, you’re not the last” is a very pretty and a bright red
shade. It is a perfect and a pure red shade with no hints of some other colour. The name perfectly describes the shade as it shows a woman as bold, confident and strong, and that’s what red lips are all about. The pigmentation is not as great as a liquid lip colour, but it is perfect as a lip cream. 2-3 swipes on my lips give me the perfect red shade. I think this is a perfect red for those who can’t carry extremely bold red lips. While this shade is bold, it is not the boldest!
Texture and finish: The lip cream is thick and creamy like butter; umm, I think it could be better called a chocolate mousse because the texture is exactly like that and it does smell like a butterscotch mousse. It glides on very smoothly on my lips and layers my lips with a subtle red colour. Some swipes are needed to build up the colour and coverage.
It remains a little glossy with a slight sheen for some time and then settles to a velvety matte finish. The finish is semi-matte and it does not turn completely matte at any point, but just fakes a look like that! It will highlight chapped lips and it does not feel dry for the initial hours, but once the creaminess goes away, the stain turns dry.
Staying power: It stays on my lips for 5-6 hours without any snacks and meals. With meals, it will just survive for 2-3 hours with a strong red stain which looks really cute. If you plan to have a meal, if will get ripped off partly with the food. But the stain stays for a very long time, so a total thumbs up for this shade!

Would I Repurchase/Recommend Makeup Revolution You’re Not The Best, You’re Not The Last Ultra Velour Lip Cream?
I won’t really get it again because the lip colour market is endless. But I definitely recommend this if you aren’t comfortable wearing bold lipsticks; these are subtle versions of the bold ones. So go and pick your favourite shade from the lot.
These do a really good job as lip creams, but I just have one complaint – why does the price differ so much? 3 GBP and Rs 700, really? Isn’t that a little too much?
