Wow wow wow!!!!!! Talk about COLOUR!
Hey friends, long time – no blog. I won’t go into all the dirty details of my absence but we can blame a majority of it on schooling. But I’m here today because I have just a fun haul to show off and brag about! This is my Makeup Revolution haul and I’m so so so excited to have this much of it available to me. I didn’t buy this all in one sitting, but broke it up into two visits to Ulta. I haven’t touched anything here except the highlight palette and damnnnn, I am impressed.
I originally wanted the Morphe Bretman Highlighting Palette, but they didn’t have any available in store and I could only get it online. I know Morphe isn’t exactly a prestige price point, but it was $29 for six highlight shades. Hmmmm… not bad pricing, but I got this Makeup Revolution for $15 which EIGHT shades. If anyone is on beauty for a budget, this is the stuff right here. It isn’t chalky and the shades look absolutely wet on the skin. I was lucky enough to have a palette in the store available for me to swatch before I bought. I was a little iffy on it before swatching, and then I was sold.
Also, if you notice, there are some other fun things I picked up like three eye shadow palettes. Go ahead and keep reading, and I’ll let you know all about them.
This palette right off the bat is so gorgeous. I believe that this is supposed to be an Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance dupe. These shades are to die for, and the pigmentation is there. It is blendable and…. AFFORDABLE! Fifteen eye shadows for $7.00. Can you believe it? That comes out to .46 cents a pan. The shimmer shades alone are great with a pigment brush, but put some Fix+ (or just wet it with whatever you have) and you got an even better deal than you thought. The bottom left shade is amazing and I’m such a sucker for anything Maroon.
What does this palette remind you of? It’s supposed to be the closest dupe to the Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture palette. Yes.. that controversial one. Now I don’t know truly the quality of that one, but this one is awesome! I noticed when that this shadows have a creamy texture to them almost. They aren’t chalky feeling when you touch them, and glide smoothly. And the green shimmer shade in this palette is gorgeous.
So I believe this palette was a collaboration with SophDoesNails and what sold me on this was that shimmer blue and purple. Oh my goodness, that puuuurple. When I swatched it on my arm, it was SO pigmented and beautiful. I knew it would look great if I were to pack it on with a pigment brush. This palette is a little but more than the first two, but you get twenty four shades at .63 cents a pan. Not bad pricing for the great quality. I really enjoy the balance between the shimmer and mattes making good options for cute cut crease looks.
Okay, so I know this isn’t a Makeup Revolution product, but I want to share this brand with you because their facial products are perfect. I have a few things them this brand, and I unfortunately can’t find an online store for them other than Amazon, but if you live in the US, please stop by your local TJMaxx to pick this up. I paid $7 for this 8oz bottle and it is a comparable dupe to Sephora’s $30 Herbivore Rose water. It’s refreshing and it smells great. I usually wipe off all my makeup at the end of the day and spray this on as a refresher. This is a good hydrating spray for this summer heat.
Well this concludes my little fun haul. I really can’t wait to try more Makeup Revolution products, especially their eyeshadows If you guys want a YouTube review and tutorial of these palettes, go ahead and let me know! Also, thank you so much for reading and let me know know what you think of this brand and if you have tried any of their products.
Thank you guys for reading, and I hope you enjoyed my little mini haul!
