When I placed a recent Makeup Revolution order, I came across their range of five #HappyLips Amazing Care Lipsticks which I'd not seen reviewed or mentioned anywhere, so I decided to buy the shade Electric Love £3. Makeup Revolution describe their #HappyLips Lipsticks as ' hydrating and moisturising with amazing hot colour, with a clear layer over the colour containing Argan Oil to soothe your lips. The box containing the lipstick is a gorgeous rose gold colour and the lipstick has the same packaging as their Amazing Lipsticks. The lipstick bullet looks so unique to any other lipstick I own.. with a thick clear layer with the lipstick colour within the centre.
When I used the lipstick for the first time it took a good 8-10 swipes before any colour appeared on my lips, and even when it did appear it was very sheer as the clear gel-like layer just blended the colour away - the swatch in the bottom photo above is around 10 swipes of the lipstick. When applied to the lips, the clear outer gel helps the lipstick glide across the lips and leaves a balmy texture to the lips which does feel slightly moisturising, but the colour is incredibly sheer so I'd describe it as being more of a lipbalm than a lipstick.. it's impossible to get an opaque, bold layer of colour. If I'm honest, I'm not a massive fan of this Makeup Revolution #HappyLips Amazing Care Lipstick. It just takes a lot of effort to get any colour onto the lips, and once you do manage to apply some of the coloured core, it then disappears within half an hour. I think the #HappyLips sound great in theory, however I've tried it countless times and it just doesn't work unfortunately... Sorry Makeup Revolution.
