First Impressions: Makeup Revolution

5 comments


Make Up Revolution, a beauty brand that i have only recently discovered - stumbled upon it whilst looking for a new inexpensive blusher in my local Superdrug store. A relatively new highstreet make up brand, started in 2014 with an amazing range of products at purse friendly prices, with most items coming in at under £10. So far i have only tried a few items but i thought i would share my first impressions, as all of the products have made it into my everyday make up bag. Available online at makeuprevolutionstore.com and at Superdrug.



Ultra Pointed Crease Eye Makeup Brush £5.99
A bit of a impulse purchase - not gonna lie was drawn in by the gorgeous rose gold handle and soft fluffy bristles, but did need a new eyeshadow brush so thought i would give the Revolution brushes a try. The perfect shape and size for creating both subtle and dramatic eye looks with powder shadows, would be interested to try with a cream formula too. Applies and blends beautifully especially metallic shades which can be tougher to apply evenly.

Pro Fix Oil Control Fixing Spray £5
Picked this product up as an emergency buy on a hen night - the moment of realisation that i had forgotten my fixing spray - wearing a white dress and parting all night, definitely needed to make sure my makeup stayed on my face. Really impressed by the product especially as i simply grabbed the cheapest spray i could find, and it lasted all night. Only thing i have found through daily use, is i need to apply mascara afterwards or i end up with panda eyes as it is quite a wet formulation when applied, but dries fast. This bottle is now almost empty so need to repurchase.


Blush Palette Golden Sugar £6 
Not sure what shade of blusher i needed, i thought buying a multi palette would be good, give me a chance to try out different shades until i found the one. A great 8 palette, which actually has a mixture of blush, highlight and contour shades perfect for creating a whole look. All very subtle shades of pink, the blushers are perfect for a rosy cheek look but it is the highlighters that i am most impressed with. Baked product with a beautiful iridescent glow that gives my skin the perfect touch of shimmer, highlighting my cheek bones and brow bone for an everyday look.

Fortune Favours The Brave Palette £9.99 
Saw this palette was a collaboration, designed by British Beauty Blogger Jane Cunningham! and was so impressed when i saw it in person. A great collection of shades mixing both matte and shimmer - from subtle everyday nudes and pinks to statement purples and greens. Not convinced i will use them all but so far am loving the nudes (Glimmer, Buffer & Golden Coins) and especially the rose gold shades (Favour, Pink Diamond & Sunset Hour). Great pigmentation and staying power, even in the lighter shades which i do find can come off easily throughout the day. I am particularly impressed with the shimmery shades, offering a subtle sparkle without looking like a disco ball - can't wait to try out some of the more dramatic dark shades on a night out. Plus i like that both palettes come with a large mirror in the lid, great for doing your makeup on the go.

Also discovered the brands "little sister" range I heart Make-up, which has some budget versions of the Too Faced chocolate palettes, which look like amazing dupes - £8 for 16 shades! I also think the Blushing hearts blusher trio looks interesting and such pretty packaging. Shop the full Make Up Revolution range at Superdrug.

  1. Try to use MAC fix+ or any other fixing spray to apply eyeshadows. It will help you to apply them more evenly. I hope this helps x
