So, I said a while back that I made a Makeup Revolution order. I gave a few of the products away (because i’m nice like that) and kept the rest to play with and try a out few different looks. I never really use colour so this was good start.
First impressions? WOW! All this for £25! I wanted cheap and cheerful so my expectations weren’t that high, but a few swatches later and i’m totally hooked. These products are great quality.
The lipstick colour is beautiful on and very comfortable to wear. You will be topping it up throughout the day but for £1, there’s no big complaints here. I will emit that I do not reach for this highlight often. That’s mainly because Casper looks tan beside me. There is a nice shimmer to this and does what its suppose too.
When I first opened this palette, it was a bit bright and scary. Apart from a neon party or festival, when am I ever gonna wear these? After swatching thought it didn’t seem so bad. As you can see some are more pigmented than others but all round this is a nice wee palette to have. Also, the rounder colours can go on a bit chalky. It’s usually £6 and I don’t think it’s something I would have usually brought but it came free with my order. Free is always a good price.
This fixing spray was recommended to me by so many people. Keeping the bottle at arms length, just a few sprays over your face and your makeup stays in place all day. It was £5 and I’ve had it for 6 months and still have around half the bottle left. Great value!
I have since found a fixing spray I love more than this (from Avon believe it or not) so I wanted to try something out. I broke up half of a powder highlighter i never use (from MUA) and added it to this. Now when I want to look metallic (you can never have enough highlighter in my opinion) I give myself a spray of this and shine brighter than a unicorns fart :-).
Saving the best till last!! I love this palette, the colours are so pretty (look at copper dream <3), the shimmers are gorgeous under light and everything is wearable! Blending wise, there are more blend-able palette in the world but that’s not saying using this is hard. I also suggest using a damp brush to apply as it really brings out the sparkle in some of the colours. At £8, this cost the most out of all the products. I would gladly pay double if I needed too as it just so beautiful.
If you want great makeup with a great price tag, I strongly suggest Makeup Revolution. From what I have used so far, I can honestly say I haven’t came across a dud product. If your only starting out in the world of makeup then this is a great inexpensive way to try out different ideas.
Nobody’s perfect…and that’s okay! 🙂 xxx
