Concealers -Makeup Revolution -Conceal & Define Full Coverage Concealer

on 12/3/2018 4:04:00 PM


There are definitely some things I like and some things I hate about this concealer. Let's start with the good!

It's affordable, has good coverage, a wide colour range for a drugstore products. I love the fat doefoot applicator and the creamy consistency of the product. The concealer is cruelty-free AND vegan, which is nice :)

And for the bad, well... this product SMELLS bad! I have a Makeup Revolution liquid highlighter than also smells bad, I'm wondering if all their products are like that? Doesn't make me want to repurchase, that's for sure.

Also, the lightest colour (C1) is not light enough for me to brighten undereyes, and it doesn't seem to completely cover my dark circles. It creases after a short while under the eyes as well.

It's not a complete miss, especially if the scent doesn't bother you. But I will keep searching for my holy grail concealer as this one is not it!

She is fulllll coverage. After a cystic acne breakout, no concealer and no foundation would cover it, but this does!

Liquid -Makeup Revolution -Conceal & Define Full Coverage Foundation

on 11/28/2018 5:05:00 PM


For reference; my favourite foundation is Tarte Rainforest Of The Sea, for which I wear Fair Neutral. I also wear NO1S in The Ordinary Serum foundation, Porcelain in Wet n Wild Photo Focus, F2 in Revolution's Fast Base and Classic Ivory in L'Oréal Infallible Pro Glow. For Conceal + Define foundation I use F2 (C2 in the brand's concealers are dead-on shade matches).

At first I really didn't like the way this looked on my dry skin, but after exploring different primers and application methods (fingers, different brushes & various sponges) I've come to really like it; if you have dry skin I've found this foundation to look and wear best applied using a damp beauty blender over a non-mattifying primer.

Applied in the way that works for me, I have no complaints with this foundation; it comes in a wide shade range for a single-figure (£8) drugstore brand - 25 shades, various base tones (there's going to be 50 shades by early 2019). It gives flawless medium-to-full coverage that lasts the entire day, and I've not experienced any oxidation, transfer or cakiness. I don't go for heavy coverage all of the time, but I reach for this when I know I'll have a busy day and won't get time for touching up my makeup - this is a reliable option, that I'm happy enough with to not want to bother looking for a different full- coverage foundation option.

Eye Shadow -Makeup Revolution -Re-Loaded Palette - Iconic Division

on 11/27/2018 9:19:00 AM


Oh, what to do, what to do... I'm so in-between with this palette, because overall, it's not a bad palette by any means, but there are areas in which it fails miserably. I suppose I'll get the negatives out of the way.

- The packaging. Is. Horrible. It's so flimsy, cheap, and unattractive. I know it's an inexpensive palette, but I still feel like I need to handle this thing extremely carefully. I wouldn't dare travel with it.

- The shimmers are absolute rubbish. You cannot use a wet brush or your finger on them, or it'll turn them into hard pan, and using a dry brush yields no payoff. They are unpigmented, and while they feel silky to the touch, they are almost unusable. Thankfully, they don't make up a large percentage of the palette.

- Some may see this as a negative while others may see it as a positive, but Revolution is sort of infamous for being a knock-off brand. On one hand, I don't mind because it makes the looks of higher-end products more available to those who don't have the money to splash out on premium makeup. But on the other hand, it's also disrespectful to the artists who created the higher-end products that MUR is ripping off. It's a good thing the quality isn't even near as good as their more expensive counterparts, or they'd be putting the good brands out of business. In this particular case, this palette is an obvious knock-off of the Anastasia Subculture palette, which was panned by beauty critics pretty universally. That's actually why I picked this up instead of the Anastasia palette, because I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a palette that would give me as many issues as I saw Youtubers and Instagrammers suffering with the ABH one. However, given the choice between some other MUR palettes and the premium palettes they're copycatting, I'd rather spend the money on superior quality and original development.

Now onto the positives:
+ The mattes perform well. They're not the most pigmented mattes in the world, and they kick up a lot of dust, but it's not difficult to create an interesting look with the mattes in this palette. The yellow, orange, and khaki green shades really do perform well.

+ Obviously, the price at $7 is pretty dang good. If you really cannot afford to support the more expensive brands that created the original palettes, then it's worth it to try these for their low price.

+ Vegan and cruelty-free. Many of the brands that MUR rips off are also cruelty-free and largely vegan, but finding decent vegan makeup at a low price point can be difficult. So kudos to them for that.

Overall, I don't really dislike this product at all (except for the awful shimmer shades), but I am not in love with it. I don't think I'll be purchasing any other palettes from this brand, and I won't likely repurchase this one if I ever manage to run out of it.

Loose Powders -Makeup Revolution -Banana Powder


WOW! Just WOW! Best powder I used. I don't normally wear powders as they look cakey on my skin but I felt I needed to use a powder to set up my make up better as I started using a new foundation which I believe needed it. I normally use Bare Minerals Powder and it doesn't even compare to this. This comes at a very cheap price, very nice, luxurious feel packaging and just the best. It sets the make up so well, leaving a flawless, no cakey no mess skin. You need to leave it on for a bit to set, then blend it in with a brush. Really blend it in. You will just love it. Would definitely recommend.
