Makeup Revolution & MUA Mini Haul!

Left to Right: MUA 'Undress me Too' Palette, Makeup Revolution 'Bronze, Shimmer, Highlight' & Makeup Revolution 'Essential Mattes' Palette.

 I tend to only stick to the well known brands Loreal, Rimmel, Maybelline etc when buying makeup but this time I decided to branch out into the perhaps, less well known brands in Superdrug.

The first palette that I picked up was by a brand called Makeup Revolution. I had only heard of Makeup Revolution recently as they are a newer brand but I was pleasantly surprised to find what I was looking for straight away. They do number of palettes all in different colours that all look fantastic. The palette I chose was the Essential Mattes. All of the eyeshadows are completely matte and are in a great colour range. They are also all very well pigmented, especially for the price!
Makeup Revolution also does a range they have named 'Iconic' palettes in Iconic 1, Iconic 2 and Iconic 3 very similar to the Urban Decay 'Naked' 1, 2 and 3. I have noticed quite a few people saying that this range of palettes are a dupe for the Urban Decay Naked Palettes. They are very similar in shade range and they are a FAR more affordable alternative. Ideal for smokey eyes and all really wearable.

I also picked up a palette by MUA, that is also nude tones but a little more shimmery. The MUA eye palette is also really lovely. Still fairly wearable but they are quite sparkly so more for nighttime or special occasions. Whilst saying that, there are a good range of lightly shimmered shades as well as glittery shades. It also does have a couple of matte eyeshadows in there but the focus is definitely more on sparkle. If you are a bit more adventurous or glamorous then its ideal for daytime. I think this could also be a great eyeshadow palette for the christmas season when you have a lot more opportunities than usual to go all out! It is reasonably pigmented so should last a fair while and I think is an all round great product for the price.

I also got a bronzer/highlighter from Makeup Revolution which I think is fantastic for the price! Its quite a large size, so not great for travelling but it means that you get a lot of product. It is divided into bronze, shimmer, highlight so its possible to use individually as well together. I tend to just sweep across all three and for bronzing and contouring. I have never had a great relationship with bronzers. I always manage to put too much on and find it impossible to avoid that streaky look but I found this one really easy! It's fairly light compared to a lot I have tried. It is slightly shimmery without being too much and very buildable. I think is a great all rounder and would be a great product for someone who might not have much experience of bronzers.

Have you tried any Makeup Revolution products?

Let me know!



  1. Buying outside your comfort zone is always scary, especially as no-one wants to waste their money, however it can be fantastic finding a product that you never would have expected to be so good! xxx
