Makeup Revolution Ultra Velour*

Hello there;

If you have been on here before, then you will be fully aware of my love for Make Up Revolution
You will also know I was a huge fan of their Velvet Lacquers. When I found out they were doing another version, I just knew I needed to try them out! 
I was lucky enough to be sent the entire collection, which I feel lucky for two reasons.
1/ Well because I love Make Up Revolution
2/ How could I possibly pick out of all the amazing colours! 

The Velour Lip Creams are exactly what they say on the box, creams. I'm glad that they didn't class these as a lip gloss or lipstick as that would not really define what they are. They are a cream. Its such an unusual formula not something I have come across before. 

They all have the same scent, which is a very sweet smell. I can't quite put my finger on what the scent is. But boy is it sweet! The formula's on these as well as being creamy, is it very soft application. Its the only way to describe it. As soon as the applicator touches your lips its just soft. Like a teddy bear is going onto your lips... does that make sense? The colour pay off on these is not as intense as the Lip Lacquers but you do get a lovely wash of colour onto your lips.  Which I think makes these a little more wearable as they are subtle. 

I have split these 10 items into more nudes and then the colourful shades.

Make Up Revolution have done what they do best, sassy names. I love them all. 

Sorry for the left hand side of my photos being a touch blurry, it would appear my camera is beginning to break a little...
I love All I think about is you and Their eyes can't find us out of these five the most. They just have that little extra something about them that I can't quite put my finger on. I do think that all of the nude colours are perfect for that no make up, make up look. They add that subtle hint of colour to your lips with out it being over powering. Apart from Their eyes can't find us, they don't contain shimmer. But if I am honest, the shimmer doesn't really transfer on to your lips. You can't even seen shimmer in the swatch.
Up next is the brights in the collection.

These are on the complete opposite end of the spectrum. Of course my attention was drawn straight to the red one. This was the first one that I placed upon my lips. You're not the best, you're not the last is 100% my favourite out of all of these! Closely followed by What will it take to make you love me? Which teams up beautifully with my MAC Girl About Town

As you can see from these swatches they are a lot more pigmented than the nudes. They certainly do stand out more as well. I love how out of this entire collection you can go from a very basic nude look, right up to a vampy red look. Its such a versatile line. But then that is what Make Up Revolution does best.
Upon wearing these first thing I noticed was how comfortable they were to wear. I am not the biggest lover of lip glosses as I can find them hard to wear. But with these they are so light, its almost like you aren't wearing anything at all. And isn't that what we are looking for in a lip product? I know I am. They are also very long wearing, they may even last longer than the Lip Lacquers. Even though these are all pluses the biggest plus is that they are £3! Cheaper than a lot of coffees out there, and these are gonna last longer than your typical Starbucks order. 
Have you tried the Ultra Velour yet?!
