Mini Makeup Revolution Haul!

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!

2014-07-19 14.44.57I 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!

Have you tried anything from Makeup Revolution yet?  What are your favorite products?

  1. These look like really interesting palettes, but it seems like the company needs to get a little it more organized if they can’t use any other payment method or even get your order right!

    • Yeah, bit disappointing after all the hassle. I would have preferred to order through Superdrug, but they didn’t have some of the new items yet! x

  2. Those concealer shades are actually quite pretty – definitely try them for contouring & highlighting, or a nude look : > You could also try them under eye shadow – no idea if they will work as a primer, but they might.

    • I did give them a go, they are nice, I am just a bit of a Collection concealer additct, haha! They’re good for some more dramatic contouring for a night out though. x

Leave me a comment, I love reading them and will try to reply to each one!
