I know what you're thinking... 'Another post on Makeup Revolution, reaaaally?' Yes, but I won't apologize, because this brand has been taking the blogger world by storm for good reason. Makeup Revolution are producing so many good-quality, budget-price products that it's no wonder no-one can stop talking about them.
I am a bit of a snob when it comes to palettes, particularly eyeshadows, and almost always buy high-end, but these two Salvation Palettes have actually really impressed me (and they're just £6, yes, Six Pounds). I've been trailing Girls On Film * and What Are You Waiting For? *, both of which are full of both matte and shimmer neutrals and packaged in gorgeous shiny palettes with huge mirrors. The shadows are so much more pigmented and easy to blend than MUA or Sleek shadows, and every single shade is wearable and super pretty. They only show their price-point after around five hours of wear, when the shadows crease on the eyelid, even with a primer. However, if you don't have oily lids like me, this might not me such a problem.
I've also been trying the Ultra Blush and Contour Palette * (again £6, I just can't get over these prices!), in Sugar and Spice, which has a range of bright and muted blushes and two pans of merged highlighter-blush powders. The pigmentation of these is incredible, so much so that the first time I used these I put on far too much! They are not quite as blendable as the eyeshadows, but for the price these are pretty stunning.
I tend to be a bit wary of budget brand highlighters, and you don't get much more affordable than this £3 Vivid Baked Highlighter * in Peach Lights. But again, this product exceeded my expectations! The pink sheen to the highlighter makes it look lovely on pale-toned skin like mine, and although it's a bit too strong for the daytime, this makes for a great evening/night highlight. Finally, their Bronze Shimmer Highlight * (basically a Bronzer, so I'm not sure why they've called it that) is a lovely non-orange toned bronzer (for £4) which isn't actually too shimmery at all. I love bronzers like this which are split into three sections of varying tone so you can select how bronzed up you want to be!
I'm so impressed with the products I've been trialing, and with more and more amazing-looking products appearing on their website, the range is just getter bigger and bigger. Makeup Revolution, you're really on the ball.
