My Favourite Makeup Revolution Palettes

Friday, March 20, 2015
Makeup Revolution is one of my favourite drugstore/cheaper brands, especially for more 'out there' products that I don't want to spend a lot of money on. Makeup Revolution also make amazing eyeshadow palettes, I love the awesome palette for bright halloween looks but they also have gorgeous natural palettes.

I have two of their newer palettes, the *Makeup Revolution I Heart Obsession Palettes (£3.99); I have the 'pure cult' and 'paris' palettes. I have been using the 'pure cult' palette a lot since I received it, it's fantastic and I love most of the shades. The four matte shades in the 'pure cult' are amazing, they are not patchy and they blend so well which is difficult to achieve with cheaper eyeshadows. The glittery shades are beautiful, especially the amber, mink and purple shades as they are so pigmented but there is quite a bit of fall out. 

I've also been loving the *Makeup Revolution Essential Mattes 2 Palette (£4) - it is so rare to find a completely matte eyeshadows at such a low price point! The shades are all so wearable, smooth and blend so well for cheaper matte shadows; the shades also build well. Within this palette, I've been loving the lavender, mink and creamy shades which look beautiful paired with a coat of mascara for a fresh, floral spring look that is very wearable. 

Lastly, the *Makeup Revolution Pro Looks Palette (£6, Stripped & Bare) which is also one of their newer palettes. I love the layout of the shades in this palette, it looks similar to a Too Faced palette that I have wanted to try for a while. Each of the three sections contain five shadows which compliment each other perfectly or you can mix and match the shades. I love the matte shades as well as the deep purple and navy shades. The dark olive shadow is so beautiful but it is very patchy and there is a lot of fall out, thankfully the rest of the shades are great!
All three looks above were created with the 'pure cult' palette and the Essential Mattes 2 palette. Overall, Makeup Revolution is a fantastic and affordable brand that have been releasing so many new products recently, a lot of which are innovative or dupes for more expensive products. I have been a massive fan of Makeup Revolution since they launched and although on occasion they can make a products that are not so great, most of their releases are fantastic, especially for the very low price point. 

Do you have any of these palettes? Have you bought anything from Makeup Revolution?
