First off, I just want to apologise for not posting regular and not replying to comments (I will, I promise). Unfortunately my mum passed away yesterday and I was spending all the time possible being with her beforehand. I’ve tried to be a little active on Instagram for a little bit of normality, applying my makeup has been my escape over the past few weeks, as sad as that sounds haha. If I miss any info out of the blog post, my apologies as my head is everywhere, if there’s something I’ve missed and you want to know, just ask in the comments.
So with that out the way, Makeup Revolution have come out with some new incredible releases! They’ve got the most beautiful packaging, I genuinely couldn’t believe it’s from such a low cost budget brand. They’ve also released a new Flawless palette & a new makeup spray for their sister brand I Heart Makeup.
First off lets talk about the packaging! Aren’t they bloody stunning, like cute mini clutches! They’re definitely Instagram perfect products and I’m obsessed and they’ll look gorgeous on a vanity. They do have a little downside though. The top half is too heavy and lifts the bottom (I had to sellotape these guys down for photos), whilst it’s lovely having a big mirror, it’s a bit of pain that it wont lay down properly.
Lets get on with if the product matches the packaging!
We’ll start off with the Renaissance Palette Day. There is 1 shimmer and 4 mattes, pretty standard neutral palette. I decided not to swatch these as they swatch terribly. When I very first swatched them I thought these palettes were a complete fail. They seemed chalky with no pigment but on the eyes it’s completely different. They’re very nicely pigmented and blend like and absolute dream with no fallout. I was genuinely shocked they worked as well as they did. The brush I tried to use but failed at, so I don’t recommend using that but it is nice they included a brush instead of a sponge applicator.
Next up we have the Renaissance Night Palette. This has 1 matte and 4 shimmers. These swatched a little better but still weren’t up to their usual standard but again performed really well on the eyes. These shadows I use without a primer (I don’t use a primer with any shadows anyway), they didn’t crease on me and lasted all day. Weren’t muddy and again got no fallout with either palette.
Now onto my favourite out of the new releases, Renaissance Glow. This contains a powder highlight and contour. The contour is the perfect grey/cool toned shade for contour (makeup revolution really know a good contour shade!), blends easily, is quite pigmented but not too much so it doesn’t pile it on in one go.
The highlight though is bloody stunning! It gives a incredibly gorgeous glow to the face but somehow making it look natural. I haven’t stopped using it. It doesn’t show texture on the face, just a gorgeous luminous glow. If you’re only going to pick up one palette, make sure it’s this. You will not regret it.
Last up out of the palettes is the new Flawless 3 Resurrection. I’m in love. Again, a lot of shades don’t swatch overly impressive (the bottom row swatch incredibly) but they apply beautifully on the eyes. For my personal preference they’ve got the shades spot on in this palette, the pinks and burnt oranges are bloody gorgeous. There’s endless amounts of looks you can create from this palette and I’m excited to play around with it a lot more.
Last up from I Heart Makeup is their new Fixing Spray. Says what it does! Makes my makeup stay all day, keeps it from getting cakey and gives it a nice little refresh during the day. The one thing I love about this, if I’m having a bad skin/makeup day and my foundation applies rubbish a few sprays of this definitely makes the texture of the foundation look better. I ended up applying 3 layers this morning (my makeup was a pain haha) and after a few sprays, took away the heaviness look (does that even make sense?!). For a fiver, it’s definitely worth checking out.
That’s it for now guys! I have purchased a few of their new & improved lip kits and will be blogging about them very soon. In the mean time I am a little behind with posts for companies so if all I’m posting are reviews then I’m sorry, I promise I’ll get some content out (like top 5 etc).
Thanks all so much for sticking around!
