I know it’s been a while, but Makeup Revolution are back on the blog this week with a brand new collection of lipsticks. Following on from their Iconic Pro Palettes (my favourite of all of their eyeshadow palettes) Makeup Revolution have now launched an Iconic Pro range of lipsticks.
Makeup Revolution are promising – an outstanding collection of the most desired lipstick shades that give super-Intensive coverage and are comfortable to wear. The contemporary packaging is now lacquered to give you the ammunition you need all the time. Be Bold. Be Iconic. Be Revolutionary.
Sounds pretty good hey!
There are 20 shades to choose from in the collection, of which I have five to share with you today. The Iconic Pros also come in a rather nice re-vamped glossy black and metallic rose gold packaging, which definitely appeals to me. Above from left to right –
- Propaganda Matte – a deep burgundy red with a matte finish.
- We Were Lovers – a bright fuchsia pink with a satin finish.
- Not in Love – a bright coral pink satin.
- Somewhere Out There – an intense neon orange with a creamy satin finish.
- Game of Mystery – a satin finish nude beige.
I wasn’t too sure what to expect with these lipsticks, being beyond impressed with the Iconic Pro 2 Eyeshadow Palette and MUR’s new eyeshadow formula, I was excited for a possible new lipstick formula with these – and I have to say they didn’t disappoint! You can see above that these lipsticks are really well pigmented, especially Somewhere Out There (neon orange) this was easily the most intensely pigmented out of the ones I tried and had the creamiest finish. It’s actually pretty much a spot on dupe for MAC’s Morange shade. You can check out my review here and you’ll see just how similar they look. We all know Makeup Revolution love to offer affordable dupes for popular big brand products, so I’m guessing this is no accident!
This makes me think there will be quite a few MAC dupes to be had out of the Iconic Pro collection – I can also see that Not In Love is also a dead ringer for MAC’s Impassioned (check it out here) but I would say the finish isn’t quite up to the standard of MAC. For £2.49 each though, I won’t be complaining, and I definitely think the Iconic Pro lipsticks are worth a try.
The Iconic Pro Lipsticks are £2.49 each and available at Superdrug now.
I hope you enjoyed my review xxx
