Makeup Revolution Haul

Makeup Revolution is a fairly new make up brand that has launched in Superdrug stores up and down the country with products starting from just £1. I was on their website last week and I just couldn't help myself so I had a mini haul and treated myself!

The first product I snapped for just £6 was the Ultra Cover and Conceal Palette in Light. As my skin is so pale, blemishes and dark circles are more visible than they would be on darker skin tones. I have tried and tested countless concealers to try and cover up my dark circles in particular but nothing works well as they are all too dark or orange. However, this palette offers 8 light shades (less than £1 per colour of concealer if you think about it - bargain!) and I couldn't love them more! The 3 lightest shades are perfect for my skin tone and when mixed together my dark circles are almost completely unnoticeable! I'm so pleased I purchased this palette and I will definitely be buying it in the medium and dark colours for kit.

The second palette I picked up for also £6 was the Ultra Blush and Contour Palette in Sugar and Spice. I am a massive sucker for blushers and when I saw this palette I had to get it! Due to my skin tone being so light I am lucky because most blush colours work well my skin. When I opened the palette I could not believe how stunning these colours are! They are beautiful! All of the colours are highly pigmented and would look stunning on any skin tone. The last colours in both the top and bottom row of the palette are shimmery and seem like they have an added highlights whilst the other colours are all matte. The palette can also be purchased in Hot Spice which looks like it may be suited to more darker skin tones rather than us pale girls! Once again, I will be purchasing both the blush and contour palettes for my make up kit.

Makeup Revolution has an I Heart Makeup range which features dupes of the Too Faced blushing heart blushers/bronzers/highlighters. I purchased the I Heart Makeup Blushing Hearts Goddess of Love Highlighter for £4.99. I haven't used many highlighters so I can't compare this to any others but I love the glow it gives me without looking like a shinning disco ball!




Whilst browsing through the I Heart Makeup section on the website I decided to purchase an eyebrow kit. I chose the I Heart Makeup Brow Kit in Fairest of them all for £3.99. The kit contains 3 powdered shades and a wax to go over the brows to hold them in place after they have been filled in. The set also includes a pair of mini tweezers and a mini brush. I love this little kit - its perfect! The lightest shade is a bit too light for me as it makes my eyebrows look ginger however the second and third shade is perfect for a natural look or building up colour.

The final product I picked up was the I Heart Makeup I Heart Definition in Fair for £4.99. The palette contains a bronzer, blusher and highlighter. Due to having such fair skin, bronzers tend to make me look muddy and many have shimmers in which is not a good look if you are trying to contour. The bronzer in this palette is matte and is perfect for lighter skin tones. It doesn't look muddy or cakey on the face and adds great definition. The blush is also fairly light and combined with the highlighter, creates a gorgeous natural glow!

As you can tell from my short reviews, I absolutely love all the products I purchased from Makeup Revolution. The products are highly pigmented, good quality and don't break the bank either which is always a plus! I will definitely be purchasing some eye shadow palettes from their range for personal use and for my make up kit soon along with some other bargain buys too!
