e.l.f Liquid Matte Lipstick Praline First Impressions

I love matte liquid lipsticks so I was excited to be sent one to try out for Superdrug’s Blog Squad. The lipstick today is by e.l.f  which admittedly is a brand I haven’t tried out all that much in the past. The shade I was sent is a gorgeous deep nude called Praline.

e.l.f’s packaging is pretty basic and generally the same for each item. From first impressions of the liquid lipstick I was quite surprised at how large the applicator is in comparisons to other brands.

I have found it quite hard to apply due to the size of the applicator and without a lip liner as I cant seem to get it neat around the lip line. I do absolutely love the colour though its just a shame its a bit awkward to use.

The colour is very similar to the shades in the new Revolution Nudes Collection: On Display and Stripped Liquid Lipsticks.  e.l.f Praline retails for £6 whereas Revolutions retails for £3. 

It is definitely not a long lasting liquid lipstick and does need touching up throughout the day but with that said I don’t think you can complain really for the price. Whilst I don’t hate the product I don’t love it either. 

e.l.f makeup is cruelty free and suitable for Vegans.

Revolution Nudes Collection: On Display and Stripped Liquid Lipsticks

Revolution formally known as Makeup Revolution has launched a brand new nudes lip collection consisting of four mattes, four metallics and four glosses. This review is about two of the new matte shades.

Revolution Stripped and On Display

I love nude liquid lipsticks with a matte finish so I opted for On Display and Stripped although all of the shades do look stunning.

All of the shades cost £3 each! I’ve always loved that Revolution is so affordable and offer good quality products for such a low cost.

Revolution On Display and Stripped Swatches

I love both of these shades and can’t decide which one I prefer, Stripped is a softer brown nude whereas On Display is deeper and has more of a burnt orange undertone on me.

They haven’t dried down fully on my swatches but they don’t take too long to do so either. If you have dry lips then it will pick up on these areas, however, it is comfortable on the lips and doesn’t feel too drying.

Revolution Applicators Stripped and On Display

The applicators are so easy to use, especially if you aren’t using a lip liner! The shape is different to the previous liquid lipsticks in the lip kits but I much prefer the newer wands. 

Revolution Liquid Lipstick Wands

Overall I’m really pleased with the longevity of these lipsticks, they just don’t budge! They are super affordable, pigmented and come in a great range of shades and finishes. I much prefer this newer range of liquid lipsticks formula over previous ones produced by Makeup Revolution.

Wonder Woman Wonder Lipstick 

Welcome back to the final instalment of the Wonder Woman lipstick mini series, these lipsticks were part of the Wilkinson Sword razor campaign to celebrate the release of the new Wonder Woman film.

Wonder is the shade I was absolutely dying to get my hands on out of the four piece collection, unfortunately I only managed to get three of the shades so my collection isn’t complete!

Wonder Woman Wonder Swatch

Wonder is a stunning pink nude shade and I absolutely love any kind of nude lipstick so I had to get my hands on this one.  Sorry for the picture being not very good but I assure you it is an amazing colour. I believe the promotion is still running so I’d definitely recommend grabbing this shade if you can.

This is my mini collection and as you can see there’s different shades to cater to each individual taste, we have the deep red shade Wisdom and Power is a classic red.

I love these lipsticks, the shades are pigmented and they aren’t drying at all which is always a bonus and cruelty free!

Makeup Revolution Matte Lip Kits Review

Liquid Lipsticks are more popular than ever thanks to Kylie Jenner, for those of us in the UK the Kylie Jenner make up range isn’t as accessible to get without paying a large custom charge and of course it’s really popular and sells out fast!

Makeup Revolution has thankfully brought out a wide range of colour dupes with their Retro Luxe Matte Lip Kit collection which retail at £6.

Makeup Revolution Lip Kits

This is my first experience using a liquid lipstick so naturally I went for the Nude shades, Echelon is a brown toned nude and Reign is a pink toned nude. I’m not sure why but my boxes do not match each other in terms of text layout… It doesn’t really bother me it just seems odd.

One thing I know people have commented on with these products is that the shade on the box doesn’t match the actually shade inside and I can agree with that so if in doubt always swatch first!

Revolution Lip KitRevolution Liquid Lip Kits

The lip kit contains the liquid lipstick and a lip liner, the lip liners do not match the lipsticks perfectly, however, it isn’t blatantly obvious when the product is on the lips and blended together.  The liquid lipstick as you can see just has your standard lip gloss wand.

Makeup Revolution Lip Kit Swatches

I found the lip liners creamy, very pigmented and glided on, however, my lip liner for Echelon has quite a wobbly tip and looks like it might break so I don’t know if mines just badly made or if they aren’t sturdy in general…

The liquid lipsticks are also very pigmented, comfortable to wear and last throughout the day, they don’t transfer and aren’t drying which is always a bonus.

I absolutely love both colours but Echelon is my favourite of the two!

I would recommend these lip kits if you’re after a matte lip product that lasts throughout the day without needing to re-apply your lipstick. For £6 you can’t go wrong unless you don’t swatch the product first as you may end up with a different colour to what you wanted.

You can purchase these from Tambeauty.com or from Superdrug

*Update: my Echelon Lip Liner has since broken inside the lid and I’ve barely used, they can be sharpened but mine was damaged beyond repair.

No7 Tawny Rose Lipstick 

Looking for a lipstick with a satin feel? Then look no further, No7 has an amazing collection of Moisture Drench Lipsticks from gorgeous pink shades to beautiful plums and everything in between.

One of my favourites from this collection is the shade Tawny Rose, a nude pink colour with a lasting finish. The shade is perfect for those out there looking for the perfect nude lipstick which isn’t brown.

No7 Tawny Rose Lipstick

As you can see from the image it is a much loved lipstick… What No7 offers is a moisturising lipstick with intense colour and a satin/semi-satin finish.

Of course all products from this brand are hypo-allergenic so perfect for those with sensitive skin.  

No7 Tawny Rose

As ive already mentioned the lipstick has a lasting feel so you don’t have to worry about it coming off easily if you have a drink. It costs £9.95 and is currently on a 3 for 2 promotion.

Have you tried any of the Moisture Drench lipsticks?
