Makeup Revolution products are raved about by beauty bloggers for their amazingly low prices, and extensive range. As I follow more and more beauty blogs, the brand is being mentioned all of the time; so on Saturday, I decided it was about time I tried some of their products for myself. This is what I treated myself to:
Powder Blush in Colour Wow!
Can you believe that this was £1!? Seriously, at that price I was tempted to buy this blush in every available shade (I managed to control myself though). My photograph of this product didn’t quite capture the pinkness in all its glory, so I have included Makeup Revolution’s two stock photos from their site. For a good year or so I have been using the same blusher daily, and it really is time for a change. Because I have very pale skin, I have always felt a little cautious about trying a quite light pink purely because I doubted it would even show up on my skin! I gave this product a try today and have to say I really like how subtle and natural looking a paler blush is, whilst still making me look a little more alive. I will be sure to show this product off in a makeup look soon 🙂
The Matte Effect Foundation in Cool Ivory
Coming in at £2, I just couldn’t say no to giving this a go. My initial impressions of the product after giving it a quick skin test is that it really is a great match. It makes me so happy to find a product that is as deathly pale as I am! I genuinely have hopes of this foundation being good because of the aspect of it being “matte”- I have found in the past I have got on with every other matte foundation I’ve used. However, at £2 if it isn’t up to the job of hiding my occasional breakouts, I will be more than happy to give it to my 14 year old family friend.
Lipstick in Lady and Divine
I have had mixed feelings about this pair! Lady is a bright red, and was absolutely perfect for Halloween (I went as a demented witch so naturally had to have ‘blood’ dripping from my lips). The colour was just what I needed, my only complaint would be that after having a few drinks and partying for 2 hours or so, I had to reapply. To be honest, at £1 each I expected this, so it really wasn’t a trauma to me. Divine is quite a light pink, and much like the blush isn’t really my usual colour. However, I am determined to try out new things, so you will be sure to see this in future posts (perhaps a Birthday make up look!). One thing I usually hate about cheaper lip cosmetics is the smell/ taste, and I am sad to say that Lady smells lovely, whereas to me, Divine smells a bit like crayons. I think when buying lip products from Makeup Revolution, for me in the future I would definitely have a quick sniff of the products (I am definitely going to look like a crazy lady on my next visit to Superdrug haha).
As always, thanks to everyone for reading, and a big hello to my new followers, I am so happy to have you here 🙂 As usual, I will be sure to write to you all again very soon (Hopefully with a makeup look using these products yay!)xx
