A few weeks ago I received a lovely package in the post containing these beauties! Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few weeks I’m sure you will have already heard about Makeup Revolution, and very possibly already own a few bits yourself! They are the newest budget beauty brand to hit the shops and they are fast becoming a beauty bloggers favourite! With prices starting at just £1 they are so affordable, and show that you don’t need to fork out for quality makeup!
I was sent the Vivid Baked Blush in Loved Me The Best*, the Vivid Baked Highlighter in Pink Lights*, the Awesome Eyeshadow and Eyebrow Palette in Disappear Until Tomorrow* and two Amazing Lipsticks in Beloved* and Twist*.
My favourite of the products I received is definitely the blush and the highlighter. I have been using them nearly every day with my Real Techniques contour brush and they go together really nicely. I also love the look of the products. As you can see below, the blush has a swirly pattern and the highlighter reminds me of a shell. It just makes using them feel even nicer as they look so pretty! The Vivid Baked Blushes are £2.50 (link) and the Vivid Baked Highlighters are £3 (link).
The Awesome Eyeshadow and Eyebrow palettes are £4 (link) and I think the quality of the formula is really good for that price! If you use the brush that comes with the palette you do get quite a bit of fall out but when I used it with the brush I got with my Urban Decay Naked 3 palette (post here) I didn’t get any fall out at all. The colours are really versatile, it’s a really good palette for creating a neutral look, or a good smoky eye if you use the darker shades. The top shades in the palette are silver, gold and bronze shades, with one being shimmery and one being more of a matte shade. They are the ones I’ve used the most so far. I haven’t made use of the eyebrow powders as of yet though!
The two Amazing Lipsticks I received are such good shades for me. Beloved is quite a baby pink shade, and is perfect for when I want something a bit understated, although I do need to give it a few layers to get a good colour pay off. As for Twist, this is definitely for when I am feeling a bit more brave! If I apply it straight from the tube it’s very bright and I feel my skin tone needs to be a bit more tanned to pull it off. However I’ve been applying it with a lip brush and it looks a lot less in your face, which I prefer! It is a gorgeous shade for summer though. The Amazing Lipsticks are a bargainous £1! (link)
The shade on the left is Beloved and the right is Twist.
And there you have it! After trying these products I have to say I am really impressed with Makeup Revolution, and I will be picking up quite a few more things when I get paid next week! The lipsticks especially are great for £1, especially if you just want to try a few new shades and aren’t sure what will suit you! You can buy online here or at Superdrug stores/online.
