What can you buy for £1 nowadays? Most newspapers cost over £1, as do magazines and TV guides. A 500ml drink would push you over £1 in most places. Bus tickets for £1 or less? I wish! Back in the day I could go into to the newsagents with £1 and leave a very happy girl, with a (free) carrier bag full of all my favourite sweets and a newspaper for my parents… the good ol’ days of the early noughties, eh?
Before I digress any further, the point I’m trying to make is that it’s hard to get anything half decent for a quid nowadays. Step up Makeup Revolution!
Makeup Revolution have taken the beauty blogging world by storm in the last couple of years, thanks to their high quality and undeniable value for money. One of my favourite products from Makeup Revolution is the Amazing Lipstick in a shade called Rebel With Cause and it costs – you guessed it – just £1!
Read on to find out more…
As you can see from the pictures, this lipstick is looking pretty well used – the bullet is covered in little score marks from my lipstick brush, the gold ‘Makeup Revolution’ has almost disappeared off the lid and the shiny black plastic is now looking a little grotty and grey. That is because this lipstick is one of only four lip products that have the privilege of living in my every day make-up bag, and it’s looking a little battered as a result!
Rebel With Cause is my go-to lipstick. I love wine shades, but sometimes they can be a little too dark against my pale skin. This colour, however, is perfect since it has quite a pink base.
Although this may not sound like a good thing, this lipstick isn’t the most pigmented in the world, but that actually makes me like it more. It means that the colour is buildable, making it a really versatile shade that can go from day to night with an extra layer. I’m impressed with the formula too – it’s neither greasy nor drying, glossy nor matte. I usually top it with a layer of Lipcote for extra staying power and for the mattifying effect it gives, but even when I forget to use Lipcote, Rebel With Cause still lasts a good three or four hours before fading.
Like the Redemption eyeshadow palettes from Makeup Revolution, these lipsticks offer great value for money. I can’t believe they’re only £1! The colour selection is incredible – they even have green, blue and black lipsticks for £1 each if you’re feeling adventurous.
If you fancy trying Rebel With Cause you can find it on the Makeup Revolution website here.
