Make up Revolution is a fairly new company launched on March 2014 (http://www.makeuprevolutionstore.com/) I love that they do great products at a great price and they already have over 300 different products for us to choose from. They also don’t test on animals, which is very good for your conscience lol I don’t feel guilty about using their products at all 😉
I’ve tried various products from their range and I have to admit I’m pretty impressed at how well made they are. In terms of the make up ingredients I haven’t really done any background research on it, but since superdrugs online are also selling them, I’m pretty sure they were thoroughly checked for harsh chemicals that would destroy our skin/bodies before selling on.
The first thing I was drawn to on their website was their eye shadow palettes, in particular the Redemption Iconic 3 palette,
not that I need any more haha as you can see they are wonderfully stacking up
I heard about their company through a YouTube make up guru and have been hooked ever since!
A lot of people went in for the Iconic 1/2 and 3 palette as they were supposed to be a great dupe for the Urban Decay Naked Palettes, which cost a fortune here in he UK and overseas.
The Redemption Iconic 3 palette is made up of some matte/shimmer and semi matte shades, perfect for everyday use, such as work or school. I’ve decided to do the swatches on paper since I woke up so early today. The swatches on skin are far more brighter than on paper btw. I hate that they have long shade numbers and not names, but hopefully they will come up with names for them. My favourite in this palette is the matte off white colour as a base and the gold in the middle as a all over lid colour.
The Redemption Essential Shimmers palette is just that, all shimmers and no mattes. This ones good for day outs and those that hate matte eye shadows, or only use matte eye shadows as transition colours. This palette is far more pigmented than the Iconic 3. I turned out liking this palette far better than I thought I would. This palette reminds me of my first ever eye shadow craze when I used to buy all the sleek shimmery eye shadow palettes with my big sister *feeling nostalgic*
This is the Matte brights Palette, it consists of all matte shades that are super vivid and scream our SUMMER!!! yes I was feeling super brave that day, either that or I just have an obsession with hoarding make up. Yes…that must be it. Hmm..
Anyhow, I didn’t swatch the white, I didn’t see the need. The best colours in this palette are the greens and pinks and I can’t wait to use them as crease transition shades.
The next things I’ll discuss became my most favourite go to products this year, it was their lovely lush lipsticks.
I really enjoyed writing in these creamy crayon like lippies ❤ Vice and depraved are my most favourite lipsticks everrrr (Note to self: Must buy back up) Crime is my close third fav. I like rebel when I apply it softly rather than use all its pigmentation power, maybe for an Autumnal look. Dare is far more red than in the picture, but I like it ♥
The packaging is not too bad either, though I have noticed that the lids on two of mine keep coming off in my bag *sniff*
These are there pure pigments, they really went all out with this one, I’ve brought high end pigments that match this exactly except Make up Revolution provide us with more pigments for our money, which is awesome.
Supreme is my favourite is can be used as a highlighter for the brow bones and even for cheek highlights, or to top up matte shadows to transform your eye look. They are much more shimmery and sparkly than on these pictures and the pigments are like fine dust rather than specks of glitter, which blends in much better.
I also bought two single eye shadows, both matte called ‘As smooth as..’ and ‘MMMM’ I love the names LOL, I totally forgot to take swatch pictures of them, *sigh* ah well nvm. They’re both pigmented and look fabulous, I’ve bought them to use as crease eye shadows and also contouring. I wish you could have seen my face when I uploaded this *priceless* I am totally aware that these two look like identical twins, but be sure they are not, the top one is far lighter and the bottom far darker in real life. Why? Why me? Really sorry excuse the pictures, my phone is not the best one out there in the market right now. *sniff* Dreaming of better photography days…
