The ONE Makeup Product I Broke My No-Buy For

Happy Saturday! It has been over four months since I started my 2018 Beauty Challenge. I did manage to go quite some time without purchasing anything, and I am proud of that! However, I am far from perfect and did end up breaking my own rule. Do I regret it?


Read along to find out why. 🙂

I am sure many of you are familiar with Beauty For Real – one my very favorite makeup brands! Several months back, Leslie (the founder of Beauty For Real) gave a sneak peek of some lovely little lip balms on her Instagram, and I couldn’t wait to see what all the hype was about. A few months later, the brand officially released Lip Revival – a 100% natural (!!!) hydrating, tinted lip balm in nine gorgeous shades.

I knew immediately that I needed to buy one. I justified this because my Fresh Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment was running low AND not only was Lip Revival a great all-natural alternative – it was also less expensive! What made me feel even better about purchasing this lip balm is that it supports an amazing cause. Beauty For Real has teamed up with Brooke USA – a charity dedicated to improving the welfare of horses and other animals in developing countries. 20% of all proceeds from Lip Revival go towards this cause, and each shade is named after a Brooke Ambassador and elite equestrian.

So let’s talk about Lip Revival! I tore open my package the second it arrived! I originally ordered two shades – Hannah (a sheer terra cotta) and Laura (a tawny rose shimmer.) I also got Allison (a coral pink shade) for my sister. We immediately tried them on and fell in love!

Lip Revival is perfect because it is hydrating, lightweight, and buildable. One layer gives you a nice, sheer tint, but you can easily add more layers for a vibrant look. I loved it so much that I ended up purchasing a third shade – Sinead. This is a lovely red that I thought would be perfect for my Paris trip. I really like Hannah for an everyday look, as it is only one shade darker than my natural lip color. I really enjoy Laura for a more glam look as it has a gorgeous shimmer! I have one in my purse at all times. Lip Revival also looks gorgeous under a gloss or patted on the cheeks.


If you’re searching for the perfect summer lip product, I highly encourage you to try Lip Revival! You can purchase it here, and don’t forget to use my 20% discount codeMADISONMAKEUP! I feel great about endorsing this product because it is good for you and also helps make a difference! Have a great weekend! xx
