Palette Lovin’

It’s pretty safe to say I’m a lover of palettes! Palettes are just awesome. You get a wide variety of different shades all in one little box, that you can take with you wherever you go. Imagine you would have to travel somewhere and could only bring singular eyeshadows. The amount of eyeshadows you’d have to take.. yeah let’s not get into that.

Now there’s one palette in particular, that I’ve been obsessing over. It’s the Makeup Revolution Ultra 32 Eyeshadows Flawless palette. I know, there’s been a lot of reviews of this palette floating around the blogosphere lately but I’ve been loving this palette so much I just really wanted to write my own. Sorry!

I think in the UK you can get this for around 8 pounds and I think I paid around 10€ or maybe 12€, when I ordered it from their website, because they do ship internationally.  I think the incredibly affordable price is one plus already, and it’s one of the reasons I needed to try this because most of my palettes are high end so  was really curious how this would compare. But of course that wasn’t the only thing. When I saw the shades online I thought they all looked incredibly gorgeous and I couldn’t spot a single shade I wouldn’t wear.

Now that I actually have it in front of me, I still think the same thing. There’s not a single eyeshadow in this palette I won’t get any use out of. They’re all beautiful shades. The palette actually offers quite the wide variety as it includes warm nudes, soft bronzed shades, stunning metallics as well as mattes and all you need for a smokey eye. One of my favorite things about this palette is how it includes nude shades, so it’s perfect for a natural every day look but it has a lot of darker shades that are perfect for a smokey eye and more of a nighttime look. Plus it also includes shades as navy blue, a dark smokey green and coppery reds, which I quite like as you can experiment a bit with those.

The shades in general all match together so well and I think it’s the perfect palette for fall and winter due to the colors it includes. I’m especially impressed with the metallics considering how incredibly pigmented they are. The mattes in this palette aren’t my favorites as they aren’t as pigmented and some of them don’t really show up that much on my eyelids. However that only includes about 3 shades. The rest of the palette is almost flawless to me.

I’m really impressed with the high quality (apart from some of the matte shades) and I’ve been using this palette on a daily basis. I just love how it’s so versatile and you can do everything from a plain to a glittery party look. I can definitely recommend this palette and it’s one of my absolute favorites at the moment.

Have you tried any of the Makeup Revolution palettes? Which one should I get next?

Makeup Revolution Haul & First Impressions

Hey Lovelies!

I hope you had a lovely weekend and made it through Monday! I don’t know about you but my Monday seemed to drag on and on and wouldn’t end. Thank God that’s over now!

Now if you happen to be one of my lovely Twitter and or Instagram followers you might have seen that my Makeup Revolution order came in last Saturday morning and let me tell you I was quite ecstatic. Makeup Revolution is a brand from the UK and is based in London, I think. For some reason most of the bloggers I follow on Twitter are located in the UK and they kept raving about this brand as they apparently have very good quality products, which are incredibly affordable. Naturally I just had to try some of their products but since I don’t know when I’m going back to the UK next (there’s a slight chance I might go in December but I didn’t want to rely on that) I made a little order only having having discovered they actually ship world wide.

I’m quite impressed how fast it I received it! Now I’ve been playing around with all the items every day since receiving on Saturday and I thought I’d do a little haul and first impressions. Obviously I can’t give a proper review yet as I’ve only had these products for around 4 days. If you want an in-depth review of any of these things just let me know. But without further ado let’s see what I got.

Flawless Pallette

This beauty is definitely one of my favorites from my little order. It contains 32 eyeshadows ranging from matte ones to shimmery. Almost all of them are incredibly pigmented and quite long-lasting so far. I’ve used different shades for my eye makeup every day for the last couple of days and it’s always lasted until the end of the day, which is quite impressive considering how affordable these palettes are.

Blushing Hearts Peachy Keen Heart

How gorgeous is this? Seriously though isn’t this so freaking pretty? I know these look a lot like the Too Faced heart shaped blushers, which I’ve had my eye on for ages but they are incredibly hard to get over here and super expensive, so I thought why not give this one a go. It looks just as beautiful. Having never tried the Too Faced one I obviously can’t compare the two but I can give you my thoughts on this one. I’ve been very into peach blushes recently, which is why I went for the peachy option and so far I’m loving it. It adds the most gorgeous shimmery peachy slightly pink kind of glow to your cheeks.

The One Blush Stick in Matte Malibu and Dream & Focus &Fix Liquid Concealer

I’ve read so many reviews of these blush sticks and how they are one of the best things ever. I thought they’d probably be good for contouring, which is why I chose the Matte Malibu one for a contour and the Dream one, which is quite sheer, for highlighting. So far I’m really impressed with them and I have a feeling they are going to last me ages as I only ever need a tiny amount.

I’ve ran out of my concealer and couldn’t find a drugstore shade over here that was light enough. I thought I’d give this one a try and it’s okay so far. I don’t think this will become a staple one but it’s definitely okay.

Makeup Revolution Lipsticks

As you can tell from the picture I didn’t buy the most wearable shades, but that’s just what I do. I mean, I once spend 18 bucks on a glittery light blue Mac lip gloss, that according to my friends and family made me look like a corpse. I admit it wasn’t the best look but it sure was different. Anyway… I’m rambling. I just like collecting lipstick shades that are very unique. I probably won’t be wearing the green one to class any time soon but who knows. I’m sure it will come in quite handy one day. So the shades I got are Vamp, Blackheart, Serpent and Rebel with a Cause. Vamp and Blackheart are to very similar incredibly dark purples. I can already see myself wearing these despite them being so dark. Serpent is green and green is my favorite color, so naturally I had to buy it. IT’S GREEN! Rebel with a Cause is a pinky purpely berry kind of shade. All four are very pigmented and I’m excited to try them out more.

So this already rounds off my little haul. I’ve only had these products for four days but so far I don’t regret buying any of these and I’m quite happy with the products I chose to order. Do you own any Makeup Revolution products yet? What do you think of the hype?

Thanks for reading!
