As soon as my spending ban was over I placed this order. Having been disappointed time after time with another cheap make-up brand, I chose only a few products to test them out on the basis I can always order more.
I had to get all of the limited edition Scandalous lip collection as at £1 per lipstick, I decided this is the best way to try out some crazy colours.
Vice – a bright orange because I am on a mission to find a reasonably priced bright orange lipstick which is not red, coral or peach masquerading as orange.
Immoral – a pale blue lipstick because since last year where blue lips kept popping up in the magazines, I decided I simply needed a blue lipstick.
Depraved – a lilac shade which I’m hoping will look good on me because purples tend to suit my skintone.
Crime – a fuchsia pink because for some crazy reason I do not have a fuchsia pink lipstick even though it looks amazing on my skintone.
Felony – a bright yellow lipstick because for £1, why not?
Finally, I bought one of the permanent collection lipsticks in Nude just because I was curious.
I think the Scandalous collection should be permanent and maybe Makeup Revolution can add more not-so-standard colours to the collection. It’s so annoying when every brand sells the same thing!
I then went for an Awesome Metals Foil Finish metallic eyeshadow in Magnificent Copper which should create a bold copper colour on my lids once I have mixed up the formula in the provided mixing tray. I haven’t seen anything like this before so I thought it would be fun to try out. I chose Magnificent Copper as I wanted something that would stand out but it also had to be wearable, as wearable as bright metallic eyelids can be!
Now on to the eye palettes. Realistically I wanted to try them all. I know they have been compared with the Urban Decay Naked palettes but I have not used these (yet) so I chose something a little different. First I chose the Awesome Eyeshadow and Eyebrow Palette in Disappear til tomorrow as it has a good selection of golden brown neutrals shades in matte and shimmer, plus some darker shades for a smoky eye and two shades for brows. I figured this would be a good one to start me off with. The colour segments are smaller than I thought they would be which is a little disappointing but I am pleased with the 14 eyeshadow colours – they are exactly what I wanted. The palette comes with a mini angled liner brush and a mini sponge applicator.
The second palette is the Redemption Matte Brights palette which is bigger than I thought it would be! I bought this mainly because it has a matte grey strip and I really like grey eyeshadow, as well as mega bright colours. I plan to have a lot of fun with this one!
This is a budget brand so the packaging is not very good quality. It feels a bit flimsy but for £4 per palette and £1 per lipstick, I can’t really complain. I know where to go if I want fancy packaging and the more I get to know about make-up, the less I am happy to pay just because the packaging is nice. For me, the main thing is that the product has to perform.
I also received some free gifts with this order, an Easter present from Makeup Revolution. I love it when brands do this.
Pure Pigments loose eyeshadow/eye dust in Cautious, a gold colour and Levity which is lilac. I don’t normally choose loose powders as I tend to get into a mess but I’m happy to try these now I have them!
Kajal which I almost bought so I’m glad I received it!
Nail polish in Cool Days, a spring mint green.
Thanks Makeup Revolution!
