I could not have been more excited when these lipsticks landed on my doorstep. The release of Makeup Revolution’s Renaissance Lipstick collection last year was majorly hyped. Costing only £4 with dreamy rose gold packaging these lipsticks are every drugstore lovers dream. As with all Makeup Revolution products they’re also cruelty free. They’ve now released 6 new shades in addition to the 20 existing Renaissance shades and kindly sent me four of them to show you.
I have the shades:
Blended* – pale pink
Higher* – peachy nude
Highness* – berry red
Untouched* – dark plum
As I said above, the packaging of these lipsticks is to die for, I’m such a sucker for rose gold. The lipsticks feel weighty and like they’d cost much more than their £4 price tag. Interestingly Makeup Revolution have varied the packaging from the original Renaissance lipsticks. They added an additional plastic strip along the bottom of each lipstick. I like this for ease of finding the shade you want though I do feel it slightly takes away from the luxurious packaging.
All the lipsticks are super pigmented and have a creamy, very opaque formula. I can’t get over how well they swatch! They’re insanely comfortable on the lips and have a matte but still creamy look. I haven’t found them to be drying which I’m really pleased about.
I think all four shades I’ve tried compliment my pale skin beautifully and although ‘Highness’ is a little brighter than what I’d usually go for and ‘Untouched’ a little darker, I really like them both. ‘Untouched’ in particular is going to be a perfect Autumn shade.
As always the swatches below are unedited and only one swipe to show as true likeness as possible.
Seriously the colour pay off of the Renaissance Lipsticks is amazing! If you haven’t picked up a shade to try yet I’d highly recommend heading to your nearest Makeup Revolution counter or stocking up on TAM Beauty online. They’re well worth the £4 price tag in my opinion!
