After the fiasco with the lip glosses, I actually bought some lipsticks. Naturally I had to get both from the Beetlejuice collaboration. Both lipsticks are cruelty free and vegan.
The lipsticks are available to purchase from the Makeup Revolution website (see here) as well as from Superdrug. Each shade retails for £5 which is an absolute bargain. You qualify for free UK delivery on orders over £30 with Makeup Revolution and on orders over £25 with Superdrug. Standard delivery from both companies starts at £2.99 and will take a couple of days to dispatch. Normally your orders will be with you in a week but I think a mail strikes are due so it may take a little longer.
Although the packaging is the same for both items, the design for each is different and like the eyeshadow palettes completely reflect the characters. The Beetlejuice lipstick has a black component and comes in a black and white box with green details. The Lydia lipstick has a red component and comes in a red box with a black lace design and white details. All product information including the ingredients can be found on all sides on the boxes. The components feel quite sturdy with a secure cap and smooth rolling mechanism. I love that both lipsticks have a beetle pressed into them.
Beetlejuice is a pinky nude and Lydia is a bright red. Both are described as having a rich and creamy, satin velvet finish. When swatching, both felt creamy but didn’t glide across the skin. Pretty sure that occurs more with a velvet finish as they’re not as greasy. The two shades look gorgeous with a soft finish. Beetlejuice is my perfect nude shade and Lydia is the perfect bright red. Not too shiny so it doesn’t look cheap and nasty which is my number one issue with red lipstick.
On the lips, both shades applied smoothly and had a strong, even pigment. They’re not greasy, sticky or oily in any way so they’re not slick when applying. Some lip prep will stop it from catching the skin. The shape of the lipsticks helps during application to create a sharp edge that doesn’t bleed. The formula is really lightweight and barely noticeable when on. There is some transfer of both shades however it’s kind of unavoidable with satin lipsticks. Aside from the transfer, the colours last for a good couple of hours.
Overall, I am super happy with the Beetlejuice x Makeup Revolution lipsticks. Both shades are perfect for their characters and that also includes the packaging. Everything is well designed and made with added details that provide the finishing touches. The lipsticks themselves have a creamy formula that apply fairly easily with good, even pigment. The shade helps create that crisp edge and the formula doesn’t bleed.
