Blush -Makeup Revolution -Ultra Blush Palette Shade: Hot Spice

on 1/13/2018 4:24:00 AM


These blushes are very pigmented, blend well and and are quite long lasting if you set them with powder(I didn't try them without setting them with powder). Some of them are a bit more difficult to pick on the brush than others, but they're fine. The only thing i dont't like is the packaging. The design is good looking, but the product it's made of a cheap plastic. However, at this price you can't expect more.

Highlighters -Makeup Revolution -Blushing Hearts Highlighter

on 1/8/2018 10:45:00 PM


So many people online rave about Makeup Revolution, and I've really tried to bunch a lot of their items work, but so far, everything has been a let-down. This highlighter wan't really any different. While not the worst thing, it's still not good by any means. I got it in the shade Goddess of Love, a pearlescent pink that looks pretty enough when finger swatched. Applied with a brush, however, it lacks pigment, feels and look super chalky, and almost gives a whitecast rather than a glow to the skin. It's so dry and chalky that it kind of just goes everywhere when you try to blend it. What is left is just sitting on top of the skin, rather than blending in with the rest of the makeup, and so it fades very quickly. I even tried scratching off the top layer of the highlighter (like you need to do with some baked products, such as those from Elf), but it didn't make much of a difference. The brush picked up a little more product after that, but the performance and appearance wasn't any better.

The packaging is another blatant rip-off from a high end brand; this time it's Too Faced Sweetheart Perfect Flush blush that's being copied. Makeup Revolution has really gone way past the point of duping stuff, and moved onto blatantly ripping off other people's ideas. It doesn't make the product any better or worse, but for me it's another nail in the coffin for this brand that I am now officially done with.

(Side note: technically, this and a bunch of other "youtube-famous" products like the Death By Chocolate eyeshadow palette are not by Makeup Revolution (anymore?) but by the brand I Heart Makeup. However, both brands are under the same owner, TAM Beauty, and they have basically the exact same profile. Based on a lot of pictures like the one on this review, it was at some point part of the Makeup Revolution line, but was later given a separate brand name. Kind of sketchy.)

+ Supposedly cruelty free, according to the website. It only states that the products aren't tested on animals, though, nothing about ingredients or suppliers.
+ Cheap

- Quality is shit
- Lacking in pigmentation
- Dry, chalky, and looks overly powdery and white on the skin
- Doesn't last more than a couple of hours

Palettes -Makeup Revolution -Ultra 32 Shade Eyeshadow Palette - Beyond Flawless

on 1/5/2018 6:13:00 AM


On the whole, I love Makeup Revolution palettes. For the price they're a great alternative to high-end ones, with great colour pay-off and shade range. However, for every good palette there's inevitably going to be a bad one and unfortunately, this is it...

First off, this has A LOT of fallout from the shimmer shades. To the point where there were some shades in the palette I just couldn't use as my face would literally end up covered in glitter, ruining the rest of my makeup. The offending shades were also quite gritty in texture, meaning it took a lot more work with a brush to pick up any product, with a lot less colour pay-off.

The other shades in this palette were - for want of a better phrase - a bit odd. In the pan they would look one colour, but when applied to the eyelid they would look completely different. And not necessarily in a good way. Some of the darker mauve/purple shades looked beautiful in the pan, but upon application they looked muddy and didn't blend well making me look like I'd been punched in the eye! Other shades, like the deeper browns and bronzes looked multi-tonal in the pan, but again on application they looked muddy or really flat-toned.

With all the above issues factored in, I just found I didn't reach for this palette. And on the few occasions when I did, I ended up disappointed with the results I achieved. All the shades looked lovely in the pan, but none of them really delivered.

Please don't let this review put you off trying Makeup Revolution palettes. As I said at the beginning, for the most part they're great and offer some really great shades and formulas, at fantastic prices. But if you're considering getting one, I would definitely avoid this one.

Eye Shadow -Makeup Revolution -New-trals vs. Neutrals Eyeshadow Palette

on 1/4/2018 4:39:00 AM


I really enjoy using this pallette the shadows are good pigmentation, blends easily and last long packaging I'd ok but I wish makup. revolution would stop putting the sponge tip applicators in their pallette and put brushes that we can actually use.

Blush -Makeup Revolution -The Matte Blush

on 12/27/2017 11:45:00 AM


Holy pigmentation, Batman! Tap some OFF before you use this! I had a teensy accident my first go. Just. A tiny one. But it does blend out well, so I'm going to recommend a smallish, very soft brush and loads. of. blending. Swirl this stuff. Gently. Don't go ham in the pan; a stroke'll do ya. I found a beautiful shade at Ulta; too bad it's apparently been discontinued, but I've got enough to last me, like, years.
