Depraved? Why, Yes!

When  I saw the subject of today's post, I had to have it. Revolution is a UK beauty brand recently landed on our humble shores, to compete with the likes of Essence, Catrice, Sleek, and NYX. I've been drooling over the website for weeks, and backing out at the last minute every time I get my cart to checkout. Rather than splurging on a whole bunch of things, I decided to invest slowly.

Today, I'm coming at you with the first lip product I have picked up, and as you can see, it's an absolute stunner. Read on to find out about how I dabbled in Depravity!

Depravity is a Revolution Salvation Velvet Lip Laquer, a matte finish, highly pigmented, long lasting lipstick. I picked Depravity because of the unusual shade - a vibrant purple somewhere between lilac and violet. It's a beautiful, noticeable shade that's still wearable and fun. Because of the budget nature of this entire brand, these lip laquers in particular, it's affording me the luxury of trying out wacky lip colors.

The applicator for this lip laquer is a standard doe-foot which I haven't found to be difficult or messy. It's long wearing, comfortable on the lips and it doesn't seem to settle in the fine lines. It's a little dry, but applied over my MAC Fix+ Lip Primer or a thin layer of lip-balm, it is absolutely flawless.

When you apply the product, its got a minute or so of play time before it dries down to a perfectly matte finish. The best way to apply it is to start from the middle and work out, then allow to dry without pressing your lips together. There is no need for lip liner, because when this sets, that's it, no smudging, no moving. I found that if you apply this, you will absolutely need to remove it with something oily - this stuff doesn't budge!
