Yes, I finally jumped on that band wagon before it completely passed me by. I had actually tried to order from Makeup Revolution about a month ago, but finally gave up after having issues trying to use PayPal. Because I registered with PayPal when I lived in the states, the site refused to ship to me because it thought I was not inside the UK. Then for some reason it wasn’t letting me just sign in as a guest and use my bank card. Really annoying, I did tweet Makeup Revolution about it and they did state they are looking into other payment options. In the end I used the mister’s PayPal account and finally got my order in.
So what did I get?
I was debating between the many gorgeous palettes and in the end just decided to go for the 32 piece Flawless palette. Didn’t think I could go wrong there. I love pretty much all the colours, this will be perfect with my limited bathroom makeup storage space. Rather than having a few palettes and singles, this baby should do it all. I did notice that it does have that very powdery cheap makeup smell going on, but that’s definitely not a deal breaker. Can’t wait to play around with this!
I also knew I really wanted one of the blush and contour palettes, I can’t get enough of blush at the moment and the Hot Spice palette looked perfect! There’s a very shimmery colour that would be a good highlight on a night out and a shimmery blush reminiscent of the MAC baked blushes.
And the last item I didn’t actually order. I was sent the Cover and Conceal kit in error instead of an eyebrow kit and to be honest I can’t be bothered with the faff of trying to send it back and get what I actually ordered. So not really sure about this one, I don’t really use anything besides my Collection Lasting Perfection concealer and this looks like it might be something that requires a concealer brush which I don’t have. It is also in Light Medium, some of the darker shades are too dark for me, but I might try them out as a contour?
And there’s my first foray into Makeup Revolution! In general, I am really impressed by the packaging. It feels very sturdy and I think the solid packaging looks a lot more professional than clear lids. Also no useless dinky applicators included!
