When Make-Up Revolution was buzzed about a while ago, and I gave in to temptation and bought myself some their products. There was quite a hype going on recently about their products, being that they are shockingly cheap and of great quality. When I browsed through their website, I really didn’t know what I should get. I have seen some reviews to which seemingly none had anything bad to say about them, which made my shopping list more difficult to narrow down.
I would also like the mention the shipping is pretty fast for Malta; I ordered the make-up on a Friday and received the next Tuesday here. Well done Make-up revolution :D.
So here is the list of products I got:
AMAZING LIPSTICK IN BLACK HEART |REBEL WITH CAUSE |DEPRAVED |LADY CRIME |FELONY | THE ONE| NUDE :
I simply love these lipsticks, they cost just £1 and are quite pigmented for such a ridiculous cheap price. They come in a cute black packaging with the colour of the lipstick on top. I got quite a mixture of colours, from Nude to bright and shocking ones. The creamy lipsticks stay on for about 3 to 4hrs before having the need to reapply, while the matte ones always last longer. As I’ve expected the packaging can be quite flimsy, however I am not bothered at all, it just £1 after all.
EYE DUST PURE PIGMENTS IN LEVITY | SHAMEFUL| FROLIC| HYSTERIA | ANTIC | STARLESS
I had a photo-shoot where I needed to use some pigments and I was surprised to find a whole range of them. They are pretty small, you have about 1.5g but they cost only £1. Yet they are super pigmented and look divine once swatched. I do intend to buy more of them eventually.
COLOUR CHAOS EYESHADOW PALETTE:
Being that bright and shocking colours are not usually found in a palette, I was craving for some colour chaos. I’m in love with this palette, not only does it contain some beautiful bright and bold shadows, but all of them look the same on the skin as it doesn in the palette. I love the sleek black packaging which is surprisingly very sturdy and does not look like a £6 palette would usually have.
BLUSH & CONTOUR PALETTE IN HOT SPICE AND SUGAR AND SPICE:
These palettes are a must have, they are very pigmented, little goes a long way and you have every thing you need to highlight and contour your cheek bones. Each palette contains two highlighers, a couple of medium shades and darker bronzing shades. The Hot spice palette is more on the peachy side, while the Sugar and Spic is more on the pink and red tones. The packaging is sleep as the Eyeshadow palettes and they only cost £6 each. Simply amazing.
ULTRA FACE BASE PRIMER:
This primer remind me of the Make Up Academy primer, it’s silicone based and it helps with the application of the foundation. I think it’s a pretty decent primer to use for everyday. I don’t think it lasts for 24hrs, it was to ambitious for Make up Revolution to say such a thing.
THE ONE FOUNDATION:
This was a bit of disappointment, I mean you cannot expect much for £4 foundation but it ridiculously small and it comes in a liquid form which feels more like oily water than a foundation. Not to mentions that the packaging is like a very bad dupe for MAC face and body foundation. I hope they come up with a better foundation, it doesn’t have to be £4 , £6 would be just fine and hopefully with a good medium coverage this time
PRO HYGIENE ANTIBACTERIAL BRUSH CLEANER:
This is my absolute favorite brush cleaner so far , it contains a generous 200ml and it costs only £5. I use it to give a nice clean to my powder brushes and it does the job very well. The only misfortune is that it arrived with a broken cap, other than that I simply cannot complain.
LIQUID EYELINER IN WATERPROOF AND ULTRA BLACK:
The eyeliners are my fav of all the products, this might sound crazy but I have been on the lookout for a good eyeliner for a while which is not The NYX curve liner. Even though I love my NYX liner, it’s not so cheap and it lasts me for about a month or so, being that I use it a lot on myself and clients. So I was in need of a cheaper and good option, and I finally did both the liquid and pen are amazing, they last for a long time and they only vost £1.50.
BRONZER – BRONZED:
This is a lovely dark bronzer, applies heavinly and it is very pigmented, so don’t be hero and brush a lot of product unless you want to look like a Oomp Loompa :D.
So is the whole lot, Phew that was tiring 😛 , I do have another haul from Make-Up revolution which I should probably start preparing for you guys. I got some really great products, which I highly recommend except the foundation. Let me know what you think about Make Up Revolution, especially if you tried them yourself. I love reading your comments.
