They are the same colours as the lipstick with same/similar names (Rebel with cause, Blackheart, Depraved and 100% vamp) though very matte as opposed to the slight sheen the lipsticks have and a lot longer lasting and touch proof. The lip lacquers are like the original lipsticks but on steroids

First impressions: Firstly the colours are GORGEOUS. They are definitely my kind of thing! Having already tried a lip lacquer from Make Up Academy, also £3.00 and hated it I was a bit worried about not liking these especially as the colours are so perfect I really wanted to like the formula. So when I first applied Red Velvet (first one I decided to try) I was so happy to find it wasn’t the same as the MUA formula which is extremely sticky and bleeds alot. It glides on smoothly and feels like a gloss and very quickly dries matte. I would advise wearing a lip balm under these however I’d advise that for any lip product anyway, especially a matte formula.

Longevity: No plans to go out today, so my stress test will just be wearing it during the day. Also about to eat lunch so I’ll report back on how it holds up!
Its now 7 o clock so thought I’d report back. Have eaten, and drunk several cups of tea. The colour came off a bit onto the cup but when I checked in the mirror it was still great. Then came the ultimate test. My son attempted to remove the lip color with a tissue. Normally I’d distract him so my make up remains intact but decided it was a good test of how smudge proof/touch proof it is. After a good attempt to remove my lip colour it had only gone a little bit patchy but still totally wearable just needed a teeny touch up. Amazing. So 7 hours wear eating and drinking and ALOT of smudging thanks to my son, and it’s held up great. Very happy with this product!

Conclusion: I really love the formula of these, definitely better than I expected! Well done Make Up Revolution another great product!
