Makeup Revolution Salvation Velvet Lip Lacquer [Review]

With the first order I placed with Makeup Revolution I got one of their Salvation Velvet Matte Lip Lacquers, because they reminded me so much of Lime Crime's Velvetines, but for the fraction of their price. 

The first one I got was I believe You Took My Love, and I received so many compliments for it [and I loved it so much] that I decided to get some more shades.

This review is for 5 out of 7 lip lacquers. The remaining 2 are an orange and a purplish colour which I thought I would not get as much wear as the ones I bought. Now I wish I had gotten them because I have too many pinks. But well ...

These cost £3.00 each and you can get yours from the Makeup Revolution website HERE

Keep scrolling for an in depth review at the end of the post.

'I Fall in Love'

'I Fall in Love'

I Fall In Love is a very bright Barbie pink. This shade is very similar to 'You Took my Love' but brighter and more cool toned.  

This has really good staying power [like the rest of the Salvation Velvet Lacquers] and dries totally matte. 

I found that some of these go on better and less streaky than the rest of the shades. 

This one I find to be a little bit streaky.

'Keep Crying for You'

'Keep Crying for You'

Keep Crying for You is certainly the most wearable shade of the lot. It is still bright, but relatively muted when compared to the brighter shades in this line.

Dries totally matte, and not as streaky as some of the others.

'You Took my Love'

'You Took my Love'

You Took My Love is also a very bright pink. 

Dries matte, and this one I find not to be streaky at all. In fact, I love the finished look of this one. 

'Keep Trying for You'

'Keep Trying for You'

Keep Trying For You is one of my favourite shades in this line. 

It is a yellow toned red and really reminds me of Mac's Russian Red.

This also goes on without any streaks, and has a lovely matte finish.

'What I Believe'

'What I Believe'

What I Believe is the only nudish shade out of the bunch. It is a matte nude but with pink undertones.

Out of the ones I have, this was the hardest to apply, and the most streaky too. 

I thought I would love it but I don't think that I'll ever wear this one outside.


All of the Salvation Velvet Lip Lacquers are richly pigmented and come in a standard plastic tube with a doe foot applicator. 

Being richly pigmented, they are quite hard to apply - especially around the lip line. Since these dry out almost immediately, you have to be very fast [and careful] because you cannot layer these on after they're dry because you'll get a patchy result.

Once dry, they do last a very long time, but they do have a tendency to fade in the middle part of your lips. 

They are quite drying on the lips. but you can easily slather on some lipbalm before or after you apply these for a smoother feel [because these feel like you have a thin plastic sheath over your lips].

Would certainly repurchase though because I love the pigmentation and the bright colours.

Hope you find this review helpful!
