Makeup Revolution is taking the world of drugstore beauty by storm and I think I understand why! From dupes of high end brands to their low prices, there’s a lot to draw you in! I, too, was drawn in by this increasing popular drugstore beauty brand, and so I picked up a few items for myself! I’m going to review them, and see if it was all worth the hype…
Conceal and Define Concealer in C2
The first item I managed to pick up was their £4 concealer! Yes, you heard me, only £4 not £40! Let’s talk about the packaging first. Makeup Revolution are SLAYING this game! (did I really just say that?) I know you’re not meant to judge a book by it’s cover but Makeup Revolution really is as good as it looks! (Okay, now I sound like Felix cat food!) The concealer comes in a tube with a pinky rose gold label and lid. It’s such a nice colour! You can also see what colour the concealer is through the tube which makes purchasing so easy as it’s much quicker to find your shade! It has excellent coverage and blends really easily, I think anyway I’m definitely not a beauty guru! The best part is that all of makeup revolution is cruelty free! I’d definitely recommend this, apparently you can also get it in a lighter and darker shade to use as a liquid contour and highlighter! Cool! It’s meant to be a pretty good dupe for Tarte’s Shape Tape which I’m sure will please lots of you! I’m pretty sure I’ll be purchasing this again when I run out!
Liquid Highlighter in Liquid Champagne
The next item I managed to get my hands on is the Liquid Highlighter in Liquid Champagne. Again, the packaging is on point! It’s similar to the concealer in that in has the pinkish gold colour and it’s so SHINY! It was only £6 as well and you get 18ml! I’ve never had a highlighter before so I was really excited to try this! Just like the packaging it is incredibly shiny and a really nice colour actually! I remember I was swatching different ones in the shop and I walked out with it all over my hands, and then I saw one of my teachers and it was a bit weird! Again, I’d recommend this. It’s easy to apply and looks great!
Redemption Palette Essential Mattes 2
I decided to go for quite a lowkey palette because I’ve only really started getting into makeup! The packaging is simple, yet effective. It kinda reminds me of urban decay’s Naked palettes! It contains 12 colours, some quite dark, others quite light! When I use this, sometimes I kind of mix two colours together which is good because it means I actually get way more than 12 colours for only £4! Overall the pigmentation is pretty good, though the lighter colours aren’t as good but look it’s under £5! I think that this is really good for some basic looks and if I wanted a bolder eye, I’d definitely go and pick up another one of their palettes!
Renaissance Lipstick in Blended
I don’t have many lipsticks so when I saw this one I had to pick it up! The packaging is an excellent gold colour and looks really pretty! The colour is so nice too! It’s a light pinky colour, so not too bold! It’s great for a subtle, lowkey makeup look! Again it’s only £4 which is a bargain I think! I’m not really sure what else to say about this except that I would recommend it!
Fast Base Stick Foundation in C3
I was quite intrigued by this product as firstly, I’ve only ever owned liquid foundations and secondly, I’ve seen great things about it online! So, I had to try it out, and I thought that for only £5 you can’t go too far wrong! I have to say I was quite impressed. It’s so easy to apply and blend and it has great coverage! I think that I’d definitely purchase something like this again, especially for its quality, ease of application and price!
That’s my Makeup Revolution collection so far, and as you can probably tell I will definitely be going back for more! I hope you enjoyed my post and inspired you to try out this great brand (This isn’t a sponsored post, promise!). Makeup Revolution is available at Superdrug or at TAM Beauty.
