Kylie Lipkit Dupes: Revolution Lip Kits Review

Kylie Lipkit Dupes: Revolution Lip Kits Review

Hello Lovelies,

University is (almost) finally over. This last year has been one of the craziest, most stressful experiences of my life which deserve to be rewarded. As such, I came across these new Revolution ‘Retro Luxe Lip Kits” which consist of Matte and Metallic shades. Call them dupes of Kylies Lip Kits, but I’m a sucker for some good lip shades and at £6 per kit, I’m hardly complaining.

Side Note: Revolution does not test on animals. Hurrah!

Shade: ‘Worth It’

‘Worth It’ is the only metallic shade in this review. I was interested in trying this because I don’t always venture too far out of my comfort zone, but always enjoy when I find something that works for me. I must admit, I truly love this dark purple/blood bitten shade which is so versatile for day and night. For some reason though, I thought it would dry matte so the thick lip gloss texture threw me off guard. Because of this, the application can be difficult and patchy. Probably not great for those of us who lack patience.

Shade: Reign

Reign is probably the ‘girliest’ shade out of the lot. Despite the brown/ nude undertones to the shade, the colour applies closer to baby pink. Personally, I’m not a fan of pink shades, just because I don’t think it fits with my personality (makes sense right?). However saying that it is probably the most wearable shades, especially for daytime looks. Overall though, I really liked how matte the liquid dried and can see this lasting for the majority of the day.

Echelon is my favourite matte liquid lipsticks in this review, and potentially my current favourite in my entire collection at the moment.  Similar to Reign, it is mostly a pink shade. However, the dark purple and nude undertones create a gorgeous lip-bitten shade that’s wearable throughout the day and night. An absolute win from me.

Shade: Royal

Royal an absolute pain to applicate! As with all dark shades, it can be one of the most unforgiving in terms of not looking like a toddlers colouring book. Because the colours dry quickly too, it can be difficult to fix during the process. However, the colour was gorgeous – a dark rich purple. Not the most wearable, but it was definitely exciting to see the end transformation.

    The echelon shade is so pretty! I initially passed these up, but after seeing these shades I may have to give them a try!

    So close to buying one the other day! I decided to get the radiance highlighters palette instead to try. May have to return and have a try 🙂

    I really like the Echelon shade! and I think Reign really suits you, even if it’s not your style it looks great on your skin tone 🙂
