Makeup Revolution Blush Palette♥

"blusher (blʌʃə/) - noun: a cosmetic of a powder or cream consistency used to give a warm colour to the cheeks." A product that I own a few of but don't tend to use that often. I genuinely don't know why, I just very rarely ever reach for it. I bought the Makeup Revolution Ultra Blush Palette in Hot Spice purposely, because I wanted to try and use blush more. I did want the Sugar and Spice palette, but they were all out of stock once again! 

The palette contains 8 powders; 6 which are blush, and 2 which are highlighters. The blushes are all of a different variety of shades, from pinks to peaches and dusty rose shades. Although I don't tend to go for the bright pink shades (bit too Barbie-like on my pale complexion), I can comment that they are quite pigmented. There is a mix of both matte shades and shimmer shades so you can alternate depending on what you fancy - there are three matte as well as three shimmers (50/50 split). I believe that there is a shade that will compliment near enough any type of makeup look in this palette. As for the highlighters; well I adore them. The marble-white highlighter is perhaps my favourite out of the two because it suits me best. It's quite blinding, but as you know, that's how I like my highlight to be. The marble-pink highlighter is obviously pink toned but is a little harder to pull off, as it all depends on the makeup look you go for. I think that the highlighters are more pigmented than the blushes, but they certainly are buildable.

The packaging is similar to all other makeup revolution palettes - the shiny black case with a large mirror. I think it looks classy and professional, and the plastic doesn't feel overly cheap or tacky. As the blushes and highlighters are powders, I often feel that I end up with powder all of the mirror so it has the tendency to end up dirty but I guess that this isn't too much of a problem. It doesn't contain any brushes, nor have a brush slot, but once again, this isn't too much of a problem.

For a low price tag of £6, I think this is a pretty good deal - it equals up to 75p per item in the palette. In my opinion, this palette would be perfect for people just starting out with blush, or makeup, or if you prefer quite a light blush that isn't too striking. Makeup Revolution have now released cream blush palettes so if cream blushes are more down your alley, then perhaps check those out!

Have you tried this blush palette? What's your opinion?

  10. Your photography is really great!! I keep looking at this palette but I'm more of a bronze girl rather than blush. I'm sure I'll cave and buy it eventually though.
