Makeup Revolution Salvation Velvet Lip Lacquers Review

Hello hello!

Today I will be sharing with you two fun matte lippies I’ve been wearing often! These are none other than Makeup Revolution’s Salvation Velvet Lip Lacquers! Makeup Revolution is an affordable, cruelty free, London based brand and I am really glad they launched an online shop in the USA!

About the Makeup Revolution Salvation Velvet Lip Lacquers
This description is directly from their website:
The versatility of a lipstick, the convenience of a gloss, and the longevity of a stain: Salvation Velvet Lip Lacquer goes on as a liquid and dries down to a matte finish, providing intense, touch-proof color that lasts. 
One thing I would say about these lippies is to look for swatches! I almost always look for swatches but didn’t with either of these and boy was the website’s photos off! I bought the top one thinking it was more burgundy but it’s definitely more purple in real life. The second one slightly deeper on their website but it’s a brighter red in person. Luckily though, I ended up loving both even though I was looking for something else!
Availability
Until a couple weeks back, Makeup Revolution was only available on their main website (apart from stores in the UK) but they launched a USA website (free shipping on orders $25+) and is available on Ulta’s website as of a couple weeks now. Yay to no more international shipping fees!
I bought the top lip lacquer (Rebel) off of Ulta’s website a few weeks back and the bottom ( Keep Trying For You) off of their London based website a month or two ago.
Price
Each Velvet Lip Lacquer costs $5, which I think is fairly price compared to other drugstore brands. US shipping is $4.95 or free on all orders $25+!
Packaging
I really like the packaging of these lippies, I think they’re the perfect size – they’re a tiny bit sleeker and taller than the NYX Matte Lip Creams. I like that there’s a gold ring on the top of the bottle and right below the cap. 
Application
These lippies have standard doe foot applicators and for me, applying these are easy. The formula doesn’t dry super quick and adding a second layer doesn’t make it streaky, patchy, or flakey for me – although I have heard the formula is flakey for some people. I always exfoliate my lips and apply lip balm before using these. 
Pigmentation/Texture/Longevity
Both of these have amazing pigmentation and they have a velvety/creamy texture. For me, these have the right amount of matte finishing. They’re not super drying and do require some touch up throughout the day but that wasn’t surprising since some of my high end matte lippies don’t have super strong lasting power either. 
Swatches

Keep Trying For You is a red/orange but more red while Rebel is a purple/burgundy type color. Neither of these were what I thought they would look like when I picked them based on the website photos but I’m really happy with both! I reach for rebel more often than the other. 
I apologize for the horrible quality of the photos of how they look on my lips, weather has been horrible these past couple of weeks!
Keep Trying For You is on the left and Rebel is on the right. I swear it’s the sun that’s making my nose look two different colors! 
Overall Thoughts
I am really happy with these Salvation Velvet Lip Lacquers, they don’t crack or dry out my lips like crazy and they last long enough for me! I hope they release a wider range of colors in the future because I would love to see more fall friendly colors! I definitely recommend giving these a try if you’re looking for velvety matte lippies. I would say to buy one first to see how the formula works with you since all products work differently on different types of people!
