Makeup Revolution Super Wow High Gloss Lip Colour Stick (I Heart Makeup) | Review

 

I’m a huge fan of Makeup Revolution products so when I recently spotted this Super Wow High Gloss Lip Colour Stick by its sister brand called I Heart Makeup, I had to have it.

 

Can we take a minute to talk about that adorable pink packaging?!!! The outer cardboard packaging is glossy, while the actual stick is a classic crayon (black in colour) with twist-up base with the text SUPER WOW written in glossy pink.

Moving on to the actual product and formula, the Wow Stick is a full-out matte lip product that also claims to be waterproof. I know what you’re thinking – the packaging says HIGH GLOSS (so how can it be matte?)…. nope! Makeup Revolution got that wrong, It is a SUPER MATTE lip crayon – there’s ZERO GLOSS here!

 

However, Makeup Revolution was not kidding with the waterproof formula – this is legit budge-proof and will not transfer once it has set.

I have the shade Rapture which is a beautiful bold pink (almost neon and certainly cool-toned) and I squealed with excitement when I first swatched it because it glided on smoothly on the back of my hand ….plus the pigmentation was AMAZING…. sadly, it wasn’t the same story when I applied it on my lips.

The formula did not work out for me personally. It was too drying and too patchy. I found this particular shade to be extremely uncomfortable on the lips – it clung on to every dry patch and sunk into every line…just horrible 🙁

However, I’ve read reviews of people saying the Rapture did not work out for many and that there are other shades in this line that apply beautifully. Would I try more? I don’t think so!

To wrap it up, I’ll just say that I love Makeup Revolution and the lip shade is BEAUTIFUL, but this product was a total fail for me. It’s a good idea to have a crayon lip colour because being a twist up stick  it makes application fuss-free, but I wish the formula and texture was better. For me it was a dud because it was so cracked and patchy on the lips that I ended up wiping it off right away. I might give it another try after using a lip scrub + with a lip balm underneath and I’ll let you know if that works out.

 

Price: Rs. 650/- , but you can get them for cheaper during sales.

    It’s so strange how it’s completely matte! It’s a real shame about the formula x

      Such a shame… I had a lot of hope this would work out, but that formula is just not good 🙁
