First Impressions: Makeup Revolution Concealer, Eyeshadow Palette & Contour Kit


When it comes to makeup, I feel like I am always a step behind, or in this case a couple hundred. Makeup Revolution is such a well-known and loved makeup brand amongst bloggers that have been around for so long yet this is my first time trying it, thanks to the Superdrug store that just opened up on my high street! Having read a couple reviews on their newest launches including the concealer everyone is madly in love with, I knew it was time to give the brand a try, even though I most certainly did not need any more makeup bits added to my collection. Thankfully, the products aren't bank breakers so I picked up a few things that caught my eye (and that weren't sold out) and here I am to share my first impressions on them as I tried each product over the weekend for the first time! I hope you enjoy!

MAKEUP REVOLUTION CONCEAL & DEFINE CONCEALER - C1 | £4
For less than a fiver, even if this was not as amazing as everyone made it out to be I wouldn't be too upset. Little did I know, I was trying one of the best budget concealers I have ever bought. My favourite drugstore concealer is from Bourjois, with a price tag of £8.99 and this is a serious contender for that favourite spot. Many are saying this is a dupe or a better alternative to the Tarte Shape Tape but considering I've never tried that, I will take their word for it. I like how this concealer provides full coverage to my very dark eye circles, how easy it is to blend thanks to its formula and massive wand, and how little you actually need to cover each under eye area.


In the swatch, I literally put the tiniest bit on and I could have probably covered my entire hand with that amount if I had spread it, and that is pretty impressive. As with any other concealers I had previously tried, this isn't without faults. It cracks on my fine lines after a while but it's nothing a little powder touch up won't fix. Despite having only tried it once, this has left a great impression on me and I do see myself repurchasing it when it runs out. 


MAKEUP REVOLUTION RE-LOADED PALETTE NEWTRALS 2 | £4
A concealer under £5 I get, but a 15 shade palette too?! You can tell I've never used this brand before because of my childlike excitement but seriously, how do they do this?! This palette caught my eye due to the warm burnt shade selection; I am a sucker for orange and burgundy colours and I can't think of better shades to transition me from this horrible winter to sunny spring (which we hope is just around the corner). 


With a mix of matte and shimmer shades, these are highly pigmented, long-wearing, and easily blendable shadows. I first wore them with a primer which obviously extended their wear and made them even bolder, but yesterday I wore them without any priming products and they did just fine as well; perfect for a softer look. A light hand with these is a must and even though, the packaging isn't that great, I am more interested in what's inside anyway! Needless to say, I am hooked and already eyeing up other palettes in this range because now, I can totally justify adding more palettes to my stash if they are only going to cost me £4 each. *Excuse the messy swatches below, that is an art I have yet to master .*


MAKEUP REVOLUTION SCULPT & CONTOUR KIT C01 | £3.50
I've hit pan on my Sleek contour kit so obviously, a new kit is totally justifiable. This contour kit looked perfect for my daily wear and I'm pleasantly surprised by the quality of it, despite the very low price. 


The bronzer is a nice warm matte shade that doesn't look overly orangey on my pale skin tone. It adds warmth to my complexion and I like how easy it is to blend, unlike other budget bronzers I have tried in the past which have left me with horribly streaky application. The blusher, despite not being as pigmented as the bonzer and highlighter, is very pretty and has a rose gold effect, with a nice shimmer to it. I can get away without highlighter most days by just adding a shimmery blush, but if I want a subtle glow without being too glittery, this is is the highlight I am going with as it is ideal for daytime looks. I know these swatches don't really show up much, but I much prefer something not extremely pigmented for work, mostly because I do my makeup so early in the morning when I am barely awake so that probably works out for the best.


Have you tried any of these before? I'd love to know your opinions and if you have any product suggestions from this brand do share as I am very excited to try more from Makeup Revolution. 
Thanks for reading beauties and have a great week ahead!

xoxo

  2. The colours in that palette remind me of the Naked Heat palette. I keep popping into Boots and there's a Makeup Revolution palette that keeps catching my eye but I haven't bought it yet haha 🙈
