Makeup Revolution Haul December 2017
I used to be a really big Makeup Revolution fan but my love for the brand diminished last year as I felt like the launches were somewhat repetitive and I felt like the quality had declined too. This year however, I don’t know what’s changed but I’ve been blown away by new launches I’ve tried such as the Makeup Revolution Rose Gold Eyeshadow Palette which is one of, if not the best eyeshadow palette I’ve ever tried under £10. Last year I really didn’t buy very many Makeup Revolution products but this year I’ve definitely bought more and I decided to do a Makeup Revolution haul and then share what I bought here on my blog so you have an idea of what reviews are in the pipeline.
These products are not all from one order though, I’d say 70% of the items were purchased during their amazing Black Friday sale on TAM Beauty and the rest were purchased during Superdrug’s 3 for 2 promotion so let’s get onto the products I bought…
After a couple of Makeup Revolution palette misses such as the Unicorn Love Palette, I’ve been a little more hesitant to try their palettes at the start of the year however all of their newest palette releases have been fantastic. I really do feel like they’ve changed their eyeshadow formula or something as they perform a lot better so I decided to buy a few new palettes. The Makeup Revolution I Heart Revolution Chocolate Elixir Palette £8.99 was a no brainer for me after loving the Chocolate Rose Gold Palette so much. This palette is ‘inspired’ by the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette and the shade are gorgeous too, and I have an exciting comparison post coming up on my blog very soon.
I have always found the Makeup Revolution Flawless Palettes to be consistent so I had to get the newish Makeup Revolution Flawless 4 Palette £8 to add to my existing Flawless collection. This launch was very quiet and kinda got swept under the carpet in favour of other launches so it didn’t get very much hype at all but it looks like such a beautiful palette with such a great range of shades. I also got my hands on the highly coveted Makeup Revolution x SophDoesNails Eyeshadow Palette £10 which is Makeup Revolution’s second collaboration palette, and I’ve read really positive reviews so far so I have very high hopes.
I got two of the three Makeup Revolution Gradient Highlighters in Peach Mood Lights and Sunlight Mood Lights within my Makeup Revolution Haul which are £4 each. They look so pretty, and I love the ombréd effect of the powder from light to dark as it offers a good amount of variation depending on where you swipe your brush. They are obviously inspired by the Kevyn Aucoin Neo Blushes but obviously considerably cheaper.
I also got the Makeup Revolution I Heart Revolution Light and Glow Palette and the Peach and Glow Palette which are only £6 each, and each contains a gradient blush as well as an highlighter shade and they’re in adorable mini chocolate bar packaging which I love. The box is so cute too with the fake foil effect like a real chocolate bar. I don’t know if I’ll love these as I prefer matte blushes but they were only £3 in the Black Friday sale, although they’re now back to £6.
I got a selection of powders too including highlighters and setting powder. I raved about the Makeup Revolution Pearl Lights True Gold Loose Highlighter previously on my blog so I knew I needed another shade so the Black Friday sale was the perfect oppurtunity to buy Peach Lights £5 which might not match my skintone but I figured it’d work well as an eyeshadow too. I never bought the Makeup Revolution Banana Powder as I’ve read a few negative reviews but so far, I’ve only read rave reviews on the newer Makeup Revolution Lace Baking Powder £5 so I knew I needed to try it.
I already have the Makeup Revolution Strobe Highlighter and I like it but the shade doesn’t suit me very well so I chose Northern Lights in the sale for only £2.10, which might not suit me either but I liked the swatches I quickly glanced at online prior to purchasing it. I also already own the Makeup Revolution Ice Kiss Highlighter but I didn’t know which shade to choose from their newer shades until I watched a swatch video on YouTube and decided the Champagne Kiss Highlighter £5 was possibly the best option and I already love it.
I got three Freedom items to try in my Makeup Revolution Haul; two Freedom Makeup Brushes and the Freedom Duo Brow Powder which I don’t know if I’ll blog about but they were too good to ignore when heavily reduced in the sale. I’ve not seen any reviews on the Freedom brushes so I don’t know if they’re any good but they were just over £1 each so it’s no great loss if they’re a fail.
I swatches one of the Makeup Revolution Liquid Highlighters instore and I really disliked how oily it felt but curiosity got the better of me and I decided to buy Liquid Stardust to try whilst it was included in the 3 for 2 as my ‘free’ item so it didn’t cost me if I do hate it – that’s how I like to justify my purchases anyway 😆 I also got the Makeup Revolution Brow Revolution £6 which is another product I’ve never seen featured on blogs before so I have no idea if it’s any good.
Now onto my final items within my Makeup Revolution Haul. I got the I Heart Revolution Fixing Spray for a really ridiculous reason and that is because I love the colour of the bottle but I don’t know if it’s any good yet, but I’ll definitely let you know.
I got two of the Makeup Revolution Lip Kits – Honour Gloss Kit and Peach Charming Matte Kit which are only £6 each and contain a lipliner and matching liquid lipstick or gloss. The final item was a free item and it’s a free gift with purchase offer in Superdrug right now where you get a free Makeup Revolution Palette when spending £12 or over, which is such a great deal as it contains eyeshadows and highlighters.
So they are all of the products I got in my Makeup Revolution Makeup Haul apart from the My Sign Scorpio Gloss which I forgot to photograph. I’d love to know which products from my Makeup Revolution Haul you’d like me to review as a priority, and I’ll get working on them first for you…
