So I thought I would give the world my first review of 2016 this week starting with the makeup brand Makeup Revolution. I first discovered this brand when I was browsing the many make up stands in my local Superdrug, and was amazed at the low prices! Before I dived into this intriguing brand I did some research, reading many blogs and reviews online which all indicated one thing:
THE PRODUCTS ARE AMAZING QUALITY AND A GREAT PRICE!!!!!
So I picked up a couple of palettes and lip glosses and have tried them for the past couple of weeks. So here we go!
SALVATION PALETTE ICONIC PRO 1 – eyeshadow palette
This palette is beautiful!!♥️ It contains 16 wonderfully pigmented shades suitable for any beginner and the perfect look for anytime. Concealed in wonderful black, sophisticated packaging with rose gold writing, the palette comes with a double ended application brush and an extremely useful large mirror. Another reason I love this brand is that they name each eyeshadow (hurray!!) so I can share with you some of my favourite shades. The palette ranges from neutrals, to pinks, and even some dark colour – perfect for a smokey eye; containing 8 matt shades and 8 shimmer shades the palette meets everyones needs! The shades I am loving at this current point in time are: Fade, Afflicted, Breathe, Stage and Dawn (Left to Right).
ICONIC BLUSH BRONZE & BRIGHTEN FLUSH – bronzer, highlighter and blush
This trio is a perfect addition to anyones makeup collection offering a pigmented bronzer, highlighter and blush all in one. Again, this palette comes in similar packaging to the Iconic Pro 1 however I am a little disappointed with it. The product comes in a small handy sized, reflective black packaging (unlike the matt black Iconic Pro 1 packaging) with printed branding, rather than embossed. The branding on my palette has started to rub off which is a little disappointing, however despite this for the £4.00 of the product I would defiantly recommend! The products themselves are very pigment and apply gently to the skin. They blend well, and although appear darker than my swatches show, may provide those much needed dupes for the high end trios!
INTENSE LIPGLOSS in the shade ???
Now this lipgloss doesn’t appear to have a shade name, which is rather irritating. The shade comes in a good size with an applicator included (although most do these day!). I was surprised by the product itself – but not necessarily in a good way! I found that the colour of the lipgloss was very limited and had little staying power, which was disappointing. This, as well as the shimmer in the lipgloss which I am usually against for myself, means I wouldn’t recommended this product or repurchase again.
SALVATION VELVET LACQUER in the shade velvet rebel
Now I had a little worry following the previous lipgloss, but was pleasantly surprised by this gloss. The colour is very intense and if I wore this out and about I would definitely use a similar shade lip pencil to outline first. The gloss is also matt, which helps with its considerably longer staying power than the intense lipgloss. However I found after a couple of hours the lip lacquer began to ‘peel’ off. Now this may come across as a strange phenomena to many, as it was to me when it first happened. The lipgloss literally peeled off, and I was left with patchy lips! HOWEVER, that said I would recommend this product. To most people’s surprised I actually enjoyed using this makeup product and would probably repurchase this, and maybe venture into some new colour choices;)
So there we have it! A couple of products I recently purchased at my local Superdrug and would recommended in most cases you do too! I am really excited about Make up Revolution, it is a good quality brand and reasonable priced, and I cannot wait for further products!
Keep Smiling 🙂
