Makeup Revolution Ultra Base Corrector

Tuesday, August 11, 2015
Makeup Revolution Ultra Base CorrectorMakeup Revolution is one of my favourite cheaper brands, I love their eyeshadow palettes, lipsticks and blushers. The quality of Makeup Revolution, on the whole, far surpasses expectations especially when considering the very low price point. I was kindly sent their new corrector palette which looks really interesting and I don't own anything else like it. 

The *Makeup Revolution Ultra Base Corrector Palette (£6) contains eight corrector shades for numerous uses:

- Light Pink: brightens
- Lavender: neutralise yellow undertones
- Green: neutralise redness
- Orange: neutralises blue undertones
- Peach: balance out discolouration 
- Silver/White: highlight
- Cream/Yellow: neutralises purple and dark circles
- Brown: balance ashiness in medium to darker skin tones

Firstly, I have to say that some of the colour descriptions online are not what I would describe them as in the actual palette, for example, the 'white' shade is actually a glittery silver and the 'cream' shade is yellow in my opinion. 

I thought the texture would be quite waxy, caky and hard to blend however I was pleasantly surprised as they are really creamy. The pigmentation varies between the shades with the green and cream/yellow shades being sheerer and the pink, lavender and brown shades are the most pigmented. All shades are easy to blend out with fingers and less so with a brush unless it is quite dense and firm. 

I have been using the green shade the most as my skin is naturally quite red on my cheeks and nose; the green shade definitely helps to reduce the redness and a little goes a long way. I've also been using the peach shade under my eyes to corrector the darkness I have as well as the cream/yellow shade a lot recently. To apply I tap the product onto well moisturised skin, then I apply my foundation or concealer over the top. The shades aren't really stark or obvious on my skin if I use a light hand and if I blend well. The three/four shades I use the most are great even on my drier skin type which I wasn't expecting but the one shade I won't use is the silver/white as it is so metallic! Although I cannot wait for halloween to come around as this palette will be so useful! 

Overall, if you are looking for a corrector then try out this palette as for what you get it is well worth the money and if you don't like one/two shades then you still have six shades to use. The creaminess of the correctors is fantastic as it means that they blend well. As with other Makeup Revolution palettes, this one is slim and has a large mirror so it would be great for travelling. Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5. 

Have you tried this palette or anything else from Makeup Revolution? 


  1. I think it's great that there are affordable palette like this at the drugstore now, I'd love to give one a go and this one sounds like a great place to start! :)

  3. This sounds great! It can be scary applying something that isn't your skin tone colour to your face but I guess it really works to cancel out problems! :)

  4. I love revolution, its one of my favourite drugstore make up brands, can't wait to give this a try!

  5. I like the sound of this. I sometimes use special makeup to cover up thread veins on my legs and that has a green cream as a base which works really well. I'd be interested to explore colour correction a bit more! x

  7. This is such a good price for what you get with this palette! I remember trying a green primer from No7 when it was first said it could cancel out red tones but I didn't really on with it. This palette looks much more manageable though - will definitely have to check it out :) x

  12. This look like a great palette for makeup artists and if you have loads of blemishes/redness to cover up, but I just don't feel like I would get much use out of it. Fair play to MUR though for creating such an affordable version though x
