Makeup Revolution are the hottest thing on the high street at the moment, offering budget makeup with trend led colours and a massive variety of products. I've been testing out a selection of their products and wanted to share some of my favourites with you.
Eyeshadows: at £4 for a palette of 12 shadows, you can't go far wrong! There are loads of palettes in the range to choose from, catering from nude lovers like myself, to all kinds of brights for the more adventurous. You'll spot a few dupes of high end palettes such as Urban Decay's Naked series and while the matte shades are a tiny bit chalky, the more shimmery ones definitely live up to their higher priced rivals. They also do single shadows for £1 (um...bargain!) which have some great colour choices, and because they're larger in size, might be a good option for base colours or those you'll use more frequently.
Salvation Velvet Lip Lacquers: a dupe for Lime Crime's infamous Velvetines, these are great for anyone who loves a bold lip. I didn't find them to be particularly matte - I Fall In Love (hot pink) actually seemed slightly glossy to me - but that may be my application technique! I adore the shade range and the doe foot applicator makes it easy to get a precise application. £3 each
Vivid Blush Lacquer - this is an unusual sort of product - it's a bit like a runny cream blush in a pump applicator package. The formula is extremely pigmented, so a little goes a long way, but I did struggle to get a small amount out of the pump - most times too much came out and I wasted a lot. That said, when dabbed on gently with my fingertips, I got a very soft, glowy look which I loved. It just takes a bit of patience to get the application technique right. £3 each.
I also tried a few other products which weren't great loves for me - the One Foundation and the Amazing Care Lipsticks. Unfortunately the texture of the foundation just wasn't for me and the shades were a bit off for my pasty complexion. I loved the idea of the Amazing Care Lipstick, which is pigment surrounded by an argan oil infused clear outer, but I just couldn't get an even application of colour.
Overall, I think Makeup Revolution are amazing value for money and can't wait to see what their counters will look like when they arrive in Superdrug stores (hopefully later this year). They've also got a lot of new products which have just launched on their website which look amazing - I feel a cheeky blusher palette order coming on!
