Things I’m Going to Put on My Face (For Science): Makeup Revolution’s Salvation Velvet Lip Lacquer

Wow, guys, it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these, right? This summer has zipped right by.

Toward the end of July I tested Makeup Revolution’s Salvation Velvet Lacquer in the color Attract (for wedding science, of course). This was $5 at Ulta, so I figured, why not? My cousin had tweeted me about it quite a few months back, and it looked pretty decent.

I really liked it upon initial application. It’s creamy and not drying—and the color is super vibrant. It dries matte and isn’t sticky feeling.

Been workin’ on that wedding wing.
But after a bit it started flaking. So I touched it up and headed to the store to run some errands. No biggie.

Fast-forward 10 minutes later: I’m sitting in the parking lot, peering at my lipstick in the rearview mirror of my car, wondering why it feels like my lipstick is pilling. You read that right: pilling, not peeling—like what your cardigans do when they start to wear out.

Pardon the horrible lighting & unflattering angle.
I can only conclude that it was the touch-up that caused this. So I wiped it off and proceeded about my day, sans lipstick. Bummer. I really liked the color.

At this point, Meet Matt(e) Huges is still in the lead for wedding day lipstick of choice. I probably won’t get around to trying the rest on my list, since we are now officially two months away from the event, but I suppose anything is possible.

I know for sure I want to try Lip Chic this August, though. It’s technically not a lipstick, but it could broaden my options.

Anyway, until next time!
