Brand Spotlight – Makeup Revolution London

 

As I was saying on the previous post, sorry that I’m a little late posting this blog, but I wanted to wait to try them out before writing about them.

These are the remainders of product review that has been long overdue. All hail to so many convenient online shopping that without careful planning, it could basically make a dent to¬†the credit card. I pretty much got carried away and bought more that I really need, frankly. But heck! I love trying¬†new products so these are a great opportunity for me to grab some UK drugstore makeup products. I’m talking about the crazy exchange rates and postage fee.

I’m a sucker for eyeshadow palettes and if you’ve been following my blog, you know that I’m obsessed with them. I simply could say no! And that’s me.

I was very excited when I saw this 32 Ultra Professional Eyeshadows Palette. This is like a dream come true palette if you’re a novice users or if you’re an eyeshadow palette collector like myself.

This palette contains some of the best selection of nude and neutral shades. The shadows ranging from cream to peaches, taupe, browns, beige, silver, gold, coppers, bronzes and black. In my opinion, I find this palette offers a wide variety of shades that will suffice for most of our needs.

Don’t blink, gurl! 32 shades in one¬†palette with a great mix of shimmer and matte wearable and experimental shades to create any look and play with, for amazing performance and value! It’s certainly a winner in my book.

All these shadows are beautifully pigmented with an addition of some new shades and it comes with a large full size mirror. I want to put it out there that there is no applicator or brush provided with the palette.

The finishes are mattes, frosty and satin. There are only a few matte and satin finish shades though since the majority of shades are frosty.

They blend easily and last all day. It’s an inexpensive drugstore palette that offers quality.

Next up is the Lip Amplification. I got the shades in High Voltage and Full Throttle (they have some great names by the way for lip colors).

The High Voltage is a dark hot fuchsia pink which looks like it’s going to be a hot pink mess for my skin tone turned out to look not too bad on me. I did a hand and lip swatch for you guys on the images below.

I found this to transfer quite a bit when I did the kiss test on my hand. But if you blocked it out with tissues then it would set in nicely.

One thing I noticed about this lip color is that it doesn’t leave your lips feeling tacky like those NYX Lingerie lipstick. It sets in comfortably and feel lightweight on lips. It’s like not wearing any lippie at all.

Moving on, I got Full Throttle which is  a bright fire engine red. This blew my socks off, it wasn’t anything that I was expecting, it was so much more!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

OMG, look it’s really pigmented! I love, love this formula! Oh did I mentioned that red is my favorite classic lip colors beside natural nude.

It finished with a pretty subtle but yet sexy pouty lips. I will definitely repurchase this one once I run out.

Let’s get to the next product which I’ve been dying to share with you guys on swatches.

This is the darker one and the lightest shade in this one is pretty much the same as in radiant, possibly a little less yellow in my opinion.

Shimmer Brick Rose Gold 

Once I mixed all the colors together they made a nice bronze-y, shimmery brown.

Something else I’ve used these for the past few weeks, other than bronzing and shimmering up my cheeks, I wear them¬†as eyeshadows! You can use the individual colors on your lids and they work really well as an eyeshadow. I’m quite impressed with the results it gives.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve nothing bad to say about this other than the shimmery bronzer¬†that I thought it would be which isn‚Äôt a bad thing at all! I really like the lighter shades for highlighter. So pretty!

How much for this stripes you asked? These retail at ¬£3.00 each, yes ¬£3.00! The price is the real deal, don’t you think!

Let me know if you have already and what you thought of them down below, I love hearing from you ūüôā

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog. I hope to see you all again on my next post. Bye!

Tester Wednesday: Fortune Favors The Brave : Review, Photos & Swatches

 

Hey guys! Welcome back to Tester Wednesday. It has been a while since I talked about Makeup Revolution (MUR) beauty products. I ordered a few palettes online a few months ago and had been putting all these goodies on the back burner. Well, better late than never right!

So, today I thought I’ll share my¬†first impression review on¬†this beautiful palette. This palette¬†is quite special because it was created¬†in collaboration with Jane¬†Cunningham.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is her palette that she’s been working on with Makeup Revolution and had¬†finally launched it last March.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This palette retails for ¬£9.99 which is a great price value for a drugstore brand. Why did I say that? Continue reading and you’ll find out why.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Let’s talk about packaging for a second. It comes in a¬†matte gold which makes it look much more luxurious and¬†houses 30 eyeshadows, large mirror which I really appreciate and a simple dual-ended eyeshadow brush.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is a 30 pan palette. I really love the color selections she created. The shadows are for everyone, irrespective of age or tone according to Jane.

I like that¬†she added four¬†baked¬†eyeshadows in the mist of all these amazing color shadows. They’re super pigmented and very metallic. Looks so pretty all over the lids. Love love this!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here’s what you‚Äôll find in Fortune Favors The Brave¬†palette. You got light sheen and mattes, metallic bursts of color heading through to the darkest shades of black, plum and navy.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

All the shades have names which are printed on a plastic sheet. Nope! I’m not complaining at all, I like to see that effort being pour in naming these shadows. Win in my book!

I’m most excited to show all these gorgeous color swatches down below. ¬†All swatches are with one swipe directly from pan without primer.

Here’s a quick eye look I created.

The overall quality of the eyeshadows is good.¬†There are some less pigmented shades like Glimmer, Peachy, Midnight Rainbow, Tip Top, Smoothie, Latte, Cr√®me, Soft and Pink Diamond which require a bit more work and building up to get a desire intensity. Other shades are smooth and well pigmented. They’re easy to blend and they stay all day without bulging on eyeshadow base I wore for this first impression review.

I highly recommend it if you’re on the market for an affordable and good quality product¬†from¬†a¬†drugstore brand. Overall, I’m quite impressed with the wear time and happy with the look. It performs well and I got nothing bad to say about this palette honestly. It’s a versatile palette that would look gorgeous for¬†anyone.

I love that MUR is accessible to everyone on price point with no loss on quality. Best thing is that you can get this at Amazon, ebay, Ulta and Superdrug stores.

So what do you think of the ‘Fortune Favours The Brave’ palette? Comment what you think. I love to hear from you.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog. I hope to see you all again on my next post. Stay tuned for more popped up makeup products which¬†I’m so excited to show you guys.¬†Bye!

Sharon xoxo
