Makeup Revolution 'Dusky' Lipstick Review

Makeup Revolution 'Dusky' Lipstick Review
I currently have five Makeup Revolution product in my to-review drawer, so I better get started. The first one in line is their lipstick in the shade Dusky (in Slovenia available here). I had mixed feeling about it when I first tried it, and my feelings haven't changed much. Firstly, let's point out the obvious. The packaging. MUA much? If the lipstick didn't have 'Makeup Revolution' written across it, I would mistake it for one of my MUA lipsticks. They look identical! I'm starting to think MUA and Makeup Revolution products are made in the same factory or something, because some of their produts are eerily similar. 
Makeup Revolution 'Dusky' Lipstick Swatch'Dusky' is a lovely muted pink shade, but it has something I'm not a big fan of. Tons of shimmer. Shimmery lipsticks don't suit me at all, and remind me of the awful old school lipsticks I used to 'borrow' from my female relatives when I was little. Luckily, they don't have the same disgusting scent and sandy finish, but I really don't like the almost metallic finish. I'm more of a matte or creamy sheen person.

The formula itself, however, is quite nice for such a cheap lipstick. It is pigmented, applies creamy and doesn't dry out your lips. The wear time is pretty average, an hour or so, but I'm not a fan of the aftermath. Yup, I'm going to mention the shimmer again. It stays on your lips, and the glitters get legs and end up crawling all over your face. Ugh. This is why this lipstick can't get two thumbs up from me. It is an ok lipstick, but not for me personally. At least not this shade. I much prefer MUA lipsticks, which you can get for the same price - one pound. Having said that, I've seen Makeup Revolution carries other finishes as well, so they might be worth checking out.

  1. I absolutely love this shade but like you, hate the shimmer! I'd really recommend trying the Amazing Care lipsticks by Makeup Revolution, they're my favourite at the minute x

  3. it's a nice shade but i can't stand the shimmer as well :) personally, i like to apply some lip balm before i put on my lip stick or lip gloss that has shimmer in it and it helps. my lips don't feel itchy and shimmer stays on the lips (mostly) :D

  4. Jaz sem bila na začetku ful navdušena nad šminkami, potem pa sem sčasoma videla da so čisto plastične ali pa so preveč silikonske. Moje sem prav izločila in še čakam kaj narediti z njimi- verjetno v koš ali pa kakšnim mlajšim sorodnikom. Kaj pa vem, vse je bolj slabe kvalitete, edino dve paleti sta mi všeč.
    je pa lepo prebrati, da je vsaj nekdo kritičen! ;)

    1. Ja, jaz sem mnenja, da bi vsaka bloggerka morala biti kritična in iskrena, ker je to cel point telih naših ocen. Škoda, da nekatere samo hvalijo vse povprek, da dobijo zastonj produkte. Se mi zdi, da je sploh v Sloveniji to zdaj zelo prisotno in včasih niti ne vem več komu lahko zaupam. :/

      Drugače pa šminke tudi jaz je ne bom obdržala, ker nima smisla, da se mi samo valja po predalu. Paleta senčil in maskara sta me pa sploh razočarali. Maskara je edino za v smeti. Samo kremno rdečilo mi je super. Sem pa zdaj dobila za stestirat še paletko rdečil v prahu, tako da me prav zanima kakšna je.

  5. Sem imela isto mnenje glede odtenka Dazzle. Pač frost paše samo v 90's, pa še takrat ne. Tudi mene niso te MR šminke prepričale. Niso zanič, ampak jaz raje dam par evrov več pa dobim nekaj od Catrice :).
    Osnovna barva od Dusky izgleda zelo lepa in ti paše :), kakšna Please Me od MAC ali pa Runway Pink od E.l.f. sta ji podobni in mat.

  6. Paše ti, meni se zdi lep odtenek :) Na meni bi sicer izgledal malo presvetlo, ampak tebi paše...

  8. Your blog doesn't like my comments. :( Sem ti že tule enkrat komentirala, pa mi očitno Blogger spet ni hotel pustiti komentarja.
    V glavnem, napisala sem, da je mene moj odtenek tudi precej razočaral, ker je formula grozna, mi je pa všeč šminka iz Amazing Care kolekcije, ker lepo navlaži ustnice. Šimer v šminkah pa tudi meni ni všeč.

    1. :( A veš da meni blogger tudi nagaja in mi na nekaterih blogih ne objavlja komentarjev. Sem mislila, da ga samo moj laptop spet sračka, ampak zgleda da ne. :D
