Makeup Revolution Vivid Blush Lacquers – Review and Swatches


Hello ladies! So I am pretty late on this one as many of the bloggers have already reviewed these but better late than never so let’s begin. 

Product Claims

Ultra intensive liquid blush for intense pop of colour and easy to blend.


What Do I Think?

When I had these babies in my hands I couldn’t help but think “These are so darn cute!” Each bottle is the size of an adult palm and comes with a pump dispenser which, in my opinion is just the right packaging for a liquid product. The cap secures the product nice and tight so can be easily tossed inside the purse.






The pump needs to be pressed a few times for the first time to dispense the product but don’t be hasty otherwise you might end up with excess product on your hand. I got three shades, Bloom, Desire and Heat. These are matt, very creamy, extremely pigmented and blend easily. I tested these without any primer, foundation, setting powder or powder blusher underneath and they stayed for good 3 hours and faded within 4 to 5 hours leaving behind a healthy glow. The staying duration will definitely increase if a primer or a powder blusher is worn underneath these. Once blended, they set quickly and do not move. Here is the proof: After swatching these I rubbed my arm vigorously under water but the product didn’t budge, washing it with soap and water also did not remove it completely, this talks a lot about their being water-resistant. I feel these will also perform well in warm humid weather.

This was my first time trying out a liquid blush; I have never used any cream blusher either mainly because I prefer such products to be in powder finish for myself as they are, in my opinion, easy to work with. I had to mention this because I, not being into liquid blushes, made a mistake, yes, a grave mistake. I have read people saying that liquid blushes, including MUR Blush Lacquers, can be easily blended with fingers and that is their plus point, I agree. But for some like I, who is new to liquid blushes and does not know the correct application technique can end up with a “slapped” face in the attempt to use fingers to blend the product (especially with darker blush shades) and I actually almost hated these babies for my blunder. I am really sorry for that my babies! The best way to apply this product would be either to use a beauty blender, a brush for cream products (I have neither) or a regular flat foundation brush. I used my MUA F1 Foundation brush to blend it which gave my skin a healthy glow (very little goes a long way). Moreover, I noticed that using fingers for blending ended up with most of the product on fingers rather than the face; that’s right, I learnt my lesson.


Bloom: Natural leaning towards peach (looks more natural on warm skin)
Desire: Somewhere between a neutral and warm pink (I feel it looks warm on my skin)
Heat: Deep Peach (will flatter warm and dark skin ladies a lot)

    1. Yes I can relate but try your foundation brush with a liquid blush if you dont have any separate brush for liquid products, they give more natural look than powder blushes, that's what I have come to conclude after using it the right way.. Moreover using really small quantity would work..
