Revoution Pro Supreme Matte Lip Pigment – Review!

Hello NARS copies! Let’s just address the elephant in the room straight away. These are obviously strongly inspired by NARS liquid lipsticks. There are many opinions about that, I don’t have any strong opinions against designs and ideas being copied as long as it’s not a fake product. I know, kind of rude to not come up with your own design, but It’s not enough for me to boycott a product. Although, I usually tend to be more drawn to the original anyway.

Makeup Revolution are known for copying other brands lipstick designs (among other things). In addition to these they also have lipsticks strongly inspired by MAC’s classic design. The Renaissance lipsticks are very close to Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks, and they recently launched glosses that might as well could be Fenty gloss bombs. So yeah, these guys being a NARS copy is neither shocking or anything new. Creds to NARS for the beautiful design though, because they are for sure pretty!

I picked up three of these guys (they were so cheap they almost count as free!) in the shades Semblance, Inconspicious and Pretence. I like that you can see the color of the lip product through the tube. Again. creds to NARS for the design.

The lipsticks don’t have much of a scent. Actually it’s hard to pick up any scent at all. You must really put your nose close to the wand to get any hint of chemical smell. I would say they are scent-free when you have to put that much effort into smelling anything.

The want is a flat want, that are precise enough to apply the product nicely. I didn’t have to use a lip liner with the red shade which is the darkest one of the ones I picked.

The lipstick has a mousse like texture and is richly pigmented. No problems getting this to apply nice ans evenly, and it’s not streaky at all. The formula feels very nice on the lips. It takes a very long time for it to dry down completely. Even after around 30 minutes I could feel that it was still a bit tacky, but it will eventually dry down completely.

They are actually very light weight and comfortable even after it has dried down completely! It’s not drying at all, and it almost feels like you are not wearing anything! So this scores a lot of points being super comfortable.

The longevity is unfortunately not that great. I would say around 3-4 hours is what to expect from these, and that is if you don’t eat or drink. Eating or drinking is actually something I would not recommend with these because they tend to crumble and fall off in a very unflattering way with any exposure to food or hot drinks. They simply does not handle eating, and they almost dissolve and crumble off.

If you don’t mind reapplying after 3-4 hours and you don’t plan on eating anything while wearing these, then they are after all comfortable to wear. In addition they are also super cheap (around 4Β£ if I remember correctly).

I don’t see myself picking up any more shades of these. I mean, if they faded away nicely I would not mind just reapplying them after a meal like a regular lipstick or gloss, but my problem with these is that they just don’t look cute at all after a meal, they fade very patchy and even though most of it is gone, you can clearly see residues on the lips, patchy residue. So for me it’s just too impractical to be tempted to pick up any more.

I could off course wear these when I know I won’t be eating for a few hours, because they do look and feel very nice, but this is not a formula I would recommend in general.

Have you tried these? Are they a hit or miss for you?

Remember that you can also find me on Instagram, would love to see you there as well!

XOXO

Mufavorites!

    1. Thank you so much lovely 😍 In a way it’s nice to be able to buy a similar design for less money although I am a bit cool towards straight up dupes. At least they have their own shades here even though the packaging is very similar πŸ˜… I sadly do think, in this case, that it’s worth investing in the NARS one which I am tempted to do. These are ok if you don’t eat or drink with them though. It’s just that it rarely happens to me that I don’t drink or eat πŸ˜…

    1. That red shade is really pretty I agree, and off course being so cheap it does not hurt to try. But I would not recommend them unless you plan om wearing them without eating or drinking anything πŸ™„

  1. Nice review. I have been curious about these for a while now but I don’t think it’s something for me. I always look for a product that fades subtly because I like to be low maintenance once out of the door, haha.

    As a notorious snacker those would not be for me then πŸ˜€ I feel like I am munching on something or have a coffee or tea almost all awaken hours of the day. So for sure those would be just aweful on me. But since I have been wondering if they would be a good alternative for NARS I am happy to know that it would be a waste (even if affordable) to bu them. I love the NARS ones and hoped this could give me an option to add a few more shades to the collection, but then I guess I have to be a bit more selective with the colours and the NARS ones again πŸ™‚ Thanks for the awesome review of those!

    1. I am sure you are better off with the NARS ones. And I am saying that without having tried them because I am so sure they are better πŸ˜… I mean, these ones hold up nicely for some hours if you don’t eat/drink, but as soon as you do they just crumble off πŸ™„
