Makeup Revolution ~ Love a Hug Amazing Care Lipstick

Hello everybody! How are you doing on this beautiful day? Do not forget about my giveaway, you still have 11 days to throw in your tickets. :) Today I will do a review of a new brand and a lipstick, both in Slovene and English, since slovene online make up store licila.si sent me the product, it seems only fair to do it in Slovene too. :)

Makeup Revolution is a new cosmetic brand for me. It is very affordable and so far I can conclude you get a very nice quality products for the price. From the licila.si letter I can see this is also the very point they are trying to make - low price, high quality. 

Živjo punce! Tokrat tudi v slovenščini, ker je seveda licila.si naša spletna trgovina. :) Makeup Revolution je nova znamka, ki jo ponujajo in glavni moto znamke je: nizka cena, visoka kakovst. Cene so vsekakor nizke, če pokukate na licila.si, vidite, da so pravzaprav izdelki cenejši kot najcenejša znamka v kakšni naši drogeriji. In po mojih izkušnjah z izdelki, ki sem jih dobila v paketku, kvaliteta na račun cene ne trpi.

First impressions on the webpages: 
The official Makeup Revolution site is too busy and on my laptop it takes a while too long to load no matter what i click on. That is always a turn off, especially if you want to check more than one product. While I was typing this post it even crashed, so yeah ... not impressed.
Licila.si page is more clear, well organised, easier to browse and loads in a matter of seconds. 
When it comes to Love a Hug in particular I would like to warn neither of the pages have a correct swatch of it, at least in my experience, you can never get a shade as strong as they are publishing.


Prvi vtis uradne spletne strani in licila.si:
Uradna Makeup Revolution stran je precej nametana in natlačena, prav tako traja čisto predolgo, da se naloži. Kar zelo odvrne od brskanja med izdelki, če traja vsakič pol minute, da se produkt naloži. Medtem ko sem pisala prispevek, se jim je še sesula, tako da ja ... nisem navdušena.
Licila.si imajo zelo jasno razdelano spletno stran, Makeup Revolution ima celo svoj zavihek na skrajni levi strani glavne vrstice in stran se zmeraj naloži v nekaj sekundah. 
Bi pa opozorila specifično pri Love a Hug šminki, da nobena od spletnih strani po mojem mnenju ne kaže pravega odtenka šminke, vsaj meni ni nikoli uspelo dobiti takšno intenzivnost odtenka ven iz nje, kot jo prikazujejo. 

Amazing Care Lipstick is one of the numerous lines Makeup Revolution has for lips. They have a pigmented core, surrounded by an Argan Oil balm, together creating a sort of tinted lip product that is also shiny and very mosturising. It feels like a hybrid between a sheer lipstick and a lip balm.

Amazing Care linija je ena od precej linij Makeup Revolution znamke izdelkov za ustnice, gotovo ena od najbolj nosljivih. Ima pigmentirano sredico, ki jo obdaja balzam iz arganovega olja. Skupaj tvorita nežno obarvan izdelek za ustnice, ki pusti na ustnicah sled barve in zelo lep naraven lesk, hkrati pa šminka ustnice tudi vlaži. Sama sem ga označila kar za hibrid med sheer/nežno obarvano šminko in balzamom za ustnice.




The shade I got in my package is called Love A Hug. The name is written on the top of the box, plus on the bottom of the lipstick bullet, so you can easily store it without the box. In the tube it looks like a toned down pink, almost natural rose, but on the pink side. Nothing too vivid, which is great for me. On the lips, it turns out to be a very nice flush of natural pink. It gives your lips a little bit of colour, and a very nice shine. The major plus I see is that it is not the glossy wet shine, but a nice glow to the lips. 

Odtenek, ki sem ga prejela se imenuje Love A Hug. Ime je nalepljeno tako na škatlo kot na dno šminke, tako da se šminko brez problema pospravi tudi brez škatle. Odtenek je lepe rožnate barve, ne preveč žive, kar mi zelo ustreza. Na ustnicah pusti lepo, naravno sled barve in zelo lep lesk. Dodaten plus po mojem mnenju je, da ni tisti moker, intenziven lesk glossa, temveč lep, naraven lesk balzama za ustnice.



Two swatches, one to show the sheen and other for the colour. Alas my swatches on the lips did not turn out well, so I shan't post them, but you can get a good idea of how it would look like on the lips. Very sheer, very comfortable, extremely wearable

Dve fotografiji, ker se mi zdi da na eni bolj pride do izraza sredica, na drugi pa lesk. Poskusila sem slikati še na ustnicah, v akciji, pa slike niso bile preveč dobre. Je pa že is swatchev razvidno, da gre za zelo prosojno šminko, ki se zelo lepo in udobno nosi čisto vsak dan.

The package itself: / Sama embalaža:


The bullet is a black plastic, with a sheer cap on top, so you can see the shade of the lipstick without opening it. I suspect the name on the bullet will come off rather easily (similar to MUA packages), as it is starting to wear off after a couple of weeks of regular usage and carrying around the lipstick in my purse. 

Tulec je iz črne plastike, na vrhu imate prozorno okence, tako da ni potrebe po odpiranju šminke, če želite videti odtenek. Mislim, da bo napis na tulcu hitro zbledel, ker se je v teh dveh tednih stalne uporabe in prenašanja v torbici že poškodoval. Tiste, ki imate MUA izdelke doma, veste o čem govorim. 


And the ingredients: / In sestavine:




Now, for my final opinion on the lipstick. I have it now for about two weeks. In these two weeks I used it almost every day. It is how I work. If you showed me the lipstick in the store, I would never have bought it. I tend to drool over dark red, matte, strong lipsticks. Which then of course I do not wear as often as I would like, especially since I love to have a very strong eye look on me, and then with a strong lipstick it would just be too much for everyday, most of the time. I have but a few "wearable" lipsticks, I got most of them as a gift and they are by far my most used lipsticks ever and I love them. Makeup Revolution Love a Hug is no exception. I love the light flush it gives to my lips and how it really does take care of the lips! It is perfect for most of my looks, so I wear it all the time. 

Končna ocena šminke je pozitivna. Nosim jo praktično vsak dan zadnja dva tedna. Precej tipično zame. Sem namreč ljubiteljica močnih mat šmink, po možnosti temno rdečih, do vijoličnih in tako naprej. Samo da je intenzivna barva. In tega imam doma kar precej in seveda ne nosim tako pogosto, kot bi želela, ker pogosto nosim tudi intenzivna senčila na očeh in bi bila že zelo močna šminka enostavno preveč za vsakdan. Imam zgolj nekaj nosljivih šmink, večino sem dobila kot darilo in seveda so najbolj uporabljane šminke v moji zbirki in jih obožujem. Makeup Revolution Love a Hug ni nikakršna izjema. Izredno mi je všeč naravna rahla obarvanost, ki jo ustvari in da dejansko neguje ustnice. Ker je tako subtilna, krasno paše k čisto vsakemu izgledu, ki ga ustvarim in posledično jo nosim praktično kadarkoli grem ven. 

It lasts long on the lips, I can't say much about the colour, I never paid attention to it when testing it, but the balm remains on the lips a while, so you walk around with a nice sheen on your lips. It is extremely easy to apply and comfortable to wear, of course. I would suggest to give two or three  swipes over the lips, so the colour spreads evenly and that you get a bit stronger tint. 

Na ustnicah zdrži kar nekaj časa, vsaj balzam. Za barvo ne morem veliko reči, ker navadno nanjo zunaj nisem pozorna, ampak balzam se lepo obdrži in ohranja lesk na ustnicah. Zelo lahko se jo nanaša in je izredno udobna za nosit. Moj nasvet je tudi, da naredite dva ali tri nanose, da se barva lepo porazdeli po ustnicah in da se ustvari malce močnejša obarvanost.

On official site the Amazing Care Lipstick Love a Hug costs £3.00, on licila.si 4,95€. I think it is well worth the money, as I find it to be a great products and it quickly became my to-go lipstick. If you are not too fond of very strong lipsticks, or love just a flush of colour on your lips, Amazing Care lipstick should be right up your alley. 

Na uradni strani Amazing Care šminka Love a Hug stane 3 funte, na licila.si strani pa 4,95€. Mislim, da je res vredna svojega denarja, saj se mi zdi super izdelek, ki je postala moja prva izbira, t.i. "go-to" med šminkami v moji sicer kar spodobni zbirki. Če nisi ljubiteljica močnih odtenkov na ustnicah, ali pa iščeš in hočeš samo kanec barve na ustnicah in obenem negovalen izdelke, bi morala biti Amazing Care linija kot naročena zate.


Do you know Makeup Revolution? And Amazing Care line? Any suggestions what to get from the brand?
