Review – Makeup Revolution Rose Gold Lipsticks.

makeup revolution rose gold lipstick review

ROSE GOLD – now I’ve got your attention. Today’s post is reviewing the Makeup Revolution Rose Gold Lipsticks, a recent launch by the company, I was lucky enough to swatch them at the Makeup Revolution 2nd Birthday Party and knew I had to add to them my makeup collection ASAP. I mean how can the can the mix of makeup and rose gold so wrong? Continue reading to hear more about this makeup addicts idea of heaven on earth…

Needless to say, the packaging of these 5 product collection (although I didn’t opt for the bright pink one as it’s a shade I simply wouldn’t wear) is simply gorgeous, you don’t even need to be rose gold obsessed to appreciate their beauty. That said, I can’t imagine anyone will dislike the rose gold bullets. They fit perfectly in my acrylic holder right alongside my Mac lipsticks and look much more attractive at that, despite the fact these cost a tiny £3 each compared to my Mac ones at £15.50. Hefty price difference at that! So let’s talk more about the specific colours in the collection.

Red Carpet – I received this in my goody bag at the Makeup Revolution Party and it spurred the need to add the other shades I’d wear to my collection. This is perfect if you want to look glamorous as this traditional red lipstick has a surprisingly amazing creamy formula with a high gloss formula that can be build up for a more intense look. I’d say this is a neutral red that would suit all skin types and you’re going to get at least six hours of wear on each application.

Diamond Life – this is a gorgeous berry red I’d say is incredibly comparable to Mac’s Diva, not just for the autumn/winter, this would make an incredible colour for spring and summer too! Again a very universal shade, I’d say you’d need two/three layers to get ultimate pigmentation, but at £3, I don’t think you can really complain.

Chauffeur – I often worry at cheaper nudes, but oh boy have Makeup Revolution got this so right. This is an incredible ‘your lips but better’ with a slight brown undertone like a muted version of Mac’s Velvet Teddy, an amazing shade for the everyday. This had been the first shade to be sold out and was a pain to get hold of but for good reason, this is a great success.

Private Members Club – the darkest of the collection, this is a high gloss purple shade I can’t wait to wear on a night out. It has very similiar undertones to Mac’s Rebel and is a autumn/winter shade but I had to add it to my collection as I’m OBSESSED with darker shades at the moment. I’d say you definitely get longer wear out of the darker shades in this collection and so for that reason, this is the shade with the best longevity.

Makeup Revolution is a brand that I believe are going from strength to strength at the moment and are definitely a brand to watch out for as I can tell there a lot more good things coming from them. With the £3 price tag (plus 20% off if you download their app on any smartphone) these are one of the cheapest lipsticks in my makeup stash, but the quality does not reflect that. If you’re rose gold or makeup obsessed.. or simply on the market for a new lipstick.. I recommend you check these out on wither the Makeup Revolution website or in any Superdrug store to see why the hype for these are so real.

Have you tried these lipsticks yet or interested in trying them out? Let me know!

  • I have chauffeur and i love it! I think they got the balance of pink and brown perfect in it! I definitely want to get more shades! All the shades you have look lovely xx

    • Amy Paternoster

      It’s a nude I’ve been picking up more than my others ever since I grabbed them and I’m so surprised how good it is – I can only imagine this would look great on EVERYONE! X

  • Lovely review! I will be sure to check these out! The deep purple is my fave 🙂

    • Amy Paternoster

      It’s one of my favourites too and is a great dupe to Mac’s Rebel I have found with just a slightly different formula! It wears so beautifully and can we complain at £3?! X

  • Kim

    I am such a huge fan of Makeup Revolution, the quality for price of their products is seriously amazing. Private Members Club looks like such a me shade, definitely want to give that one a go! Great review. XO -Kim

    • Amy Paternoster

      They really are incredibly especially at the low price point! It’s such a gorgeous plum purple, you won’t regret picking it up as it’s simply stunning on the lips and I have found I didn’t even need a lip liner for it to wear for a good few hours without re-touching! X

  • The packaging of these is so beautiful! It makes the lipstick look so expensive even though it’s really affordable. I think I might have to place a order soon. 🙂

    • Amy Paternoster

      I had this conversation with a few people! If Mac had released a line this gorgeous I’d probably expect to pay at least £20 a pop?! So a company offering them for £3 with such buttery formulas is just a god send! X

      • You are so right! Especially when they could quite possibly compete with Mac lipsticks. I am really enjoying your youtube channel, by the way. Keep up the good work! 🙂 X

  • Great review and love the photos too! I’ve been wanting to get my hands on chauffeur for the longest time, but now I’ve seen red carpet, I also want to get that one as well 🙂 I’m seriously in love with the packaging of these lipsticks!xx

      They’re both incredible shades – Red Carpet is the perfect statement red and Chauffeur is the perfect nude – you can’t really go wrong! They look so cute on display I really hope they release more colours in this range as they’re on to something here! X

  • I really need to try them! I’m a nude girl so I’d be all over Chauffeur!

  • Red Carpet and Chauffeur look GORGEOUS, exactly the kind of colours I’d go for 🙂 x
