If there’s one brand who’s taken an early lead for the title of 2015’s Makeup Brand of the Year, it’s definitely Makeup Revolution. They’ve been knocking it out of the park with new release upon new release this year and have really raised the bar for budget-friendly beauty. I basically want everything. So today I thought I’d show you my existing collection and my top items that will be in my shopping cart next time.
Top: Girls on Film Salvation Eyeshadow Palette (£6). Bottom: What You Waiting For? Salvation Eyeshadow Palette (£6). The Salvation palettes have 12 shimmers and 6 complementary matte shades. They come with a sponge application (crap) and a huge mirror in the lid (amazing).
Top: I Love Makeup Blushing Heart Candy Queen of Hearts (£4.99). Bottom: Ultra Blush and Contour Palette Hot Spice (£6). The Blushing Hearts are an obvious dupe for the 3-times-the-price Too Faced blushes. The palette blushes are great, so pigmented but blendable and buildable. There are 3 matte, 3 with a tiny hint of shimmer and two highlight shades.
Top: Peach Lights Highlighter (£3). Bottom: Ultra Blush and Contour Palette Golden Sugar (£6). So the less said about the pattern on the highlighter, the better probably. Once you get past the giggles, it;s a really lovely pinky shimmer which has amazing payoff. I chucked my beloved MUA Undress Your Skin highlight powder once I got this, it’s the same colour but only needs one swipe. The Golden Sugar palette is more of a blush/highlight in one with a couple of bronzer chucked in for good measure. I probably won’t use the lightest shades or the darkest two but they sure look pretty!
Top: Highlighter Palette Radiance (£8). Bottom: Pro Hygiene Anti-Bacterial Brush Cleaner (£5). The Radiance Palette is MUR’s answer to the Hourglass Ambient Lighting palette. I haven’t tried the Hourglass offering, but I love this one and especially the soft glow that Breathe, the first on the left gives. Lastly, this brush spot-cleaning spray is a god-send for quick wash days. Smells great too.
