Review | Renaissance Lipsticks – Makeup Revolution

Renaissance 1

After much deliberation I decided to purchase 4 of the much spoken about Renaissance Lipsticks from Makeup Revolution.

These are the newest lip installment from the TAM Beauty collective which are much more luxe than their original £1 lipsticks.


Renaissance 2


There is no denying the packaging looks familiar, think Charlotte Tilbury, Joan Collins and Esteé Lauder. It is metal, not plastic and really weighty.


These are a mixture of satin and demi matte I believe and I managed to get my hand on 1 demi matte and 3 satin shades. Not that I would know as it doesn’t say on the packaging or the website what formula you are getting.


Renaissance 3


There are so many shades and I chose ones I thought would be suitable and easy to wear. All the shades match the colour on the bottom of lipstick in real life. On the website however, there is real discrepencies in the shade you see and the shade you get. My biggest piece of advice is to look for swatches where you can or see them in real life.

The four shades I chose (left to right) are, Lifelong, Rebirth, Renew, Prime.

Renaissance 4


The scent is a fake sweet vanilla, it’s not too strong but most of their lipsticks smell the same.


As you can see from the swatches you get an opaque colour from one swipe which is fantastic. They feel lovely and creamy on the lips, in fact they feel so similar to some of my favourite high end lip products. Definitely in a different league to their original lipsticks.

Overall thoughts

I am so impressed with these lipsticks. Being that they are only £4 makes them extremely good value for money. I have to admit that I want more now after buying these four shades. I hope they bring out more.

My favourite shade is Lifelong, a deepened dusky rose and my most used is prime, a mauvey toned, pinky, browny nude!

    Our favourite is the Lifelong shade too and we like that they come in metal packaging. Might need to give this brand a try x

    These are pretty much identical to the Charlotte Tilbury lipstick packaging, almost too similar. I’m glad they were good for their prices x

    I have not tried this range before, but after going through my make up recently, I do need new lipsticks and the colours you have are all colours that I would wear and a great price as well x

    The packaging on these really does look like the Charlotte Tilbury packaging. The price is certainly very good and it sounds like you like the performance of them. I like all of the shades you picked out and I may have to give these a go.

    OMG these look so pretty I love the packaging for the lipsticks and the colours are gorgeous. At this price I’d probably buy a few. So pleased you shared this and I was lucky enough to see your post xxx

    This packaging is beautiful, it is similar to others out there but for £4 they seem like good value for money x

    Oh the packaging on these are gorgeous! I’m definitely going to have a look at these. MUR seem to have come a long way since their £1 plasticy lipsticks!

    Oh my god, the packaging looks so much like CT… fraction of the price though!

    They really do look like Charlotte Tilbury lippies! I love the look of rebirth, that is such a pretty shade x
