MAKEUP REVOLUTION HAUL + FIRST IMPRESSIONS

Makeup Revolution Haul

I know I'm probably the last person to get in on this but last week I finally made my first Makeup Revolution order. I've heard so many great things about their products and I haven't really tried any new makeup in a while so I thought I should see what all the fuss was about. The brand tend to create "dupes" for more expensive products so it's a great way to save some money. I've only used each of the products a few times so I can't give an in-depth review yet, but here are my first impressions:

Makeup Revolution Naked Chocolate Palette

NAKED CHOCOLATE EYE PALETTE

I'll start off by saying that I hate the packaging of this palette - it's so ugly! However the product itself is great! I'm guessing it's a kind of dupe for the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette but at £7.99 it's much cheaper. The shades look beautiful - all neutrals with a mix of matte and shimmer. There are a lot of shades here that aren't just your run-of-the-mill neutral shade - they're all a little bit different to what you'd normally find so I really love this palette. The eyeshadows themselves are very pigmented and last well throughout the day so this is definitely a winner!


Makeup Revolution Focus + Fix Eye Primer


FOCUS + FIX EYE PRIMER

Since my beloved Gosh eye primer was discontinued, I've been on the hunt for a good replacement. This comes in the form of a wand to apply the product and there are several formulations but I went for the original. I've used this a few times and my eyeshadow definitely seems to stay on well throughout the day so I'm very impressed.


Makeup Revolution Ultra Brow Darkest Swatch


DUAL BROW ULTRA BROW ARCH + SHAPE

I was so excited to use this product but unfortunately I ordered the wrong shade. I went with "darkest" but didn't realise it would be completely black! I know that makes sense but the shade lighter than this would be far too light for me (I checked swatches) so, sadly, I don't think I'll be able to try this product at all. Instead of letting it go to waste though, I think I could maybe use it as an eyeliner so I'll see how I get on with that.


Makeup Revolution Ultra Brightening Contour Kit Ultra Fair

ULTRA BRIGHTENING CONTOUR KIT

This reminds me of the Sleek contour kit but I have to say I much prefer this one. I swatched the Sleek one in the summer and none of the shades were suitable for me but this kit in "Ultra Fair" is perfect. It has a bronzer which is matte and not orange at all. I really struggle with bronzers but I tried this once and it seemed great. The blush is beautiful - rosy pink with golden shimmer. It is very shimmery though and I just don't think that suits my skin very well. I can definitely still use it because I love the colour but it's probably just a bit too shimmery for my liking. The highlighter is a gorgeous champagne kind of colour and it looks lovely on the skin. It catches the light beautifully and I really love it.


Makeup Revolution Radiant Light Highlighter Breathe

RADIANT LIGHT HIGHLIGHTER

This is obviously supposed to be a dupe for the Hourglass highlighters which I have been desperate to try for so long but I just can't justify that kind of money. This is a total bargain at £5. I got the shade "Breathe" and it is beautiful however I don't find it to be as pigmented as the highlighter from the contour kit. If it's just a really subtle glow you're going for then this is perfect. If you want something a bit more high-impact, go with the contour kit.


Makeup Revolution Pro Fixing Spray



PRO FIX MAKEUP FIXING SPRAY

I've been using the NYX setting spray for ages now but it ran out last week so I thought I'd give this one a try. I've only used it a few times but so far I prefer the NYX one. This spray still works to an extent but I don't feel that it keeps my makeup in place for as long as the NYX one. I'm happy to use this for the time being though because it's still a nice product.


Overall I'm pretty impressed with my first Makeup Revolution order and I'm sure I'll be ordering more from them in the future. They've just brought out a range of brushes and I have my eye on a few of them! My favourite item from this order is definitely the Naked Chocolate palette - I'd highly recommend it! If you'd like to see a more in-depth review of any of these products once I have used them a bit more then just let me know in the comments.

  2. I love the sound of the bronzer in the contour kit, I struggle to find any that are light enough for me! I've only just started trying Makeup Rev but I've been impressed so far, they have some lovely products :) xx
