So today I will be reviewing the Makeup Revolution Ultra Blush Palette in Sugar and Spice. Until I Bought this, I only owned one blusher, that I’d had maybe a year, and to be honest, the powder had become greasy and compacted and had crap pigmentation. Que this guy…
This one comes in a sleek hard shell, which is just the perfect size to chuck in your handbag, and know you’re gunna have a full size mirror to hand. To check out allll that beauty. Its durable, and could probably stand a drop with minimal damage. The only downside, it scratches super easy, which takes away from the sleekness of the packaging.
They pan size is surprising large, and just perfect for getting a fluffy blusher brush (say that five times fast) in there to get great coverage on the cheek. This palette holds 6 blushers and 2 highlights, which also makes this a very versatile palette.
Some of the colours are more wearable than others in my mind, but I have perpetual clown face blusher. Like I dont even know sometimes, but I’m working on it. I have done some swatches for the the first four at the bottom are the top row, and the second four on top are the second row.
First off, these shadows are PIG-MENT-ED like you seriously have to blow the brush before it hits your cheek, and my best suggestion is to tap product on to your cheek, then blend out for maximum control on colour.
I personally find the first 4 colours more wearable on a day to day basis, because I tend not to wear pink unless its a nude colour, and a lot of the second row colours are deeper, so I think these will suit a darker skin tone, or good for a night out. Third one in from the second row is a lovely corally pink which I find nice.
Let’s talk about these highlights now shall we? The light pink 4th up is a gorgeous duochrome pink colour that I find extremely wearable. The dark pink though could only really be used as an eye-shadow for me, I tried putting it on my face and it was hilarious! This I could imagine being stunning on deep skin tones, but for a milk bottle like me it is far to dark.
I am again, overall, very impressed with this palette, from the design, to the colour variety and the formula of the product. None of these shadows are chaulky powders, all of them and creamy and blendable. This was like £7.99 so an absolute bargain for a palette you can get so many different uses from.
I hope you enjoyed reading!
