Something Else Saturday: Makeup Revolution Haul

ses-revolution-thI was fortunate enough that on Friday the postman arrived with a package. Just a small package of bits from Makeup Revolution, the young gogetter company from England, who only recently celebrated their first birthday. As they had an offer on to celebrate, where if you spent £25 or more you got freebies worth £26, I felt it would be wrong not to try some bits and pieces. This is what arrived.

The haul in all its glory

There’s only 17 items there. Not a lot really, but to make it easier to work through, I’m going to break it down into sections. We shall start with face products.

FACE:

Ultra All Day Prime & Anti-Shine Balm (£5):

Primer compact

I ran out of primer recently, so this was a good choice to try a different one. It is tidy, compact and comes with an applicator sponge.

Blushing Hearts Triple Baked Blusher – Blushing Heart (£4.99):

Seriously, how cute is this. I may never use it, it looks so adorable, but I do like how there are three shades included in it.

Vivid Blush Lacquer – O’ Boy (£1.99)

Vivid Blush Lacquer Bottle (pump under protective lid)

This is a liquid blush with a pump lid, but I will caution you now. Be gentle. This thing is seriously pigmented. I can still see some on my hand from where I touched it on the sheet I was using earlier.

LIPS:

Amazing Care Lipsticks – Electric Love & Love Pink! (£3):

Cute Rose Gold Packaging Boxes

Electric Love Bullet & Swatch

Love Pink! Bullet & Swatch

Love Pink! Bullet & Swatch

These are glossy lipsticks with an inner colour core surrounded in an Argan Oil jelly outer. They look like you would have to reapply them often, but your lips would be super comfortable wearing them.

#Liphug – I think you’re amazing (£2.50):

A product named after its own hashtag! A mix of comfort, colour and staying power, it is probably not a shade I would have picked for myself, but I do love the name, and I think I’m amazing too!

Lip Power – Can’t Escape Me & Anticipate It (£3):

Double Ended Lip Powers

Double Ended Lip Powers

Can't Escape Me bullet, gloss & swatches

Anticipate It bullet, gloss & swatches

I do like rooting through my lip drawer for glosses to put on top of lipsticks, and here we have them perfectly matched up into one pack. There’s also two completely different shades here, a vibrant pink and a dark, almost vampy berry.

EYES:

I Heart Makeup Eye Primer – Matte (£2.99):

A large tube of the matte version of the I Heart Makeup Eye Primer. I find myself reaching for the Focus & Fix primer a lot lately, so it will be interesting to see how the two stablemates compare to each other.

Amazing Volume Mascara – Ultra Black (£2):

Amazing Volume Package

Mascara Brush

I’m always confused by products that come in black and beyond black (in this case ultra black) but I can see beyond that. It does also come in a waterproof version, and the brush looks quite nice. I am interested to see if it can do what it says!

Pure Pigments – Levity & Starless (£1):

Pigment Jars. Levity (l) Starless (r)

Pigment Jars. Levity (l) Starless (r)

Swatches. Levity (l) Starless (r)

Swatches. Levity (l) Starless (r)

I already have one of these (a sparkly brown called Grandeur) and happily added Levity, the pinky purple to my basket. As part of the free gift I received the sparkly black, Starless, and… Another Levity. I am guessing the free gift packs were pre picked, and it is luck of the draw, but I am not complaining either way. When applied over a primer to give them something to cling to, these guys pack serious power.

Baked Eyeshadow – Electric Dreams (£2.50):

Swatching these was a little more difficult than some of the other shadows, mainly as the baking process leaves them a bit drier than normal, and then working dry onto a dry surface is awkward. There is a hint to how pigmented these are, and built onto a primer or worked wet, these could be beautiful! I am also giving away my love of purple here 😉

Palettes:

Here’s the piece de resistance! Three palettes that in most cases do almost everything, and the other is just too spectacular to include in the eye section. Starting with:

I Am Naked (£5.99):

I Am Naked Palette

I Am Naked Shadows

I Am Naked Swatches (l-r from top left shadow, lipstick at end)

6 neutral eyeshadows, and a nude lipstick, in 1 cute portable set. It’s all there, ready to go for whenever I want to get naked (stop sniggering, Cat ;-))

Go! To The City (£6.49):

6 eyeshadows, 2 blushes, and a highlighter. All pigmented, all colourful, and all ready to go!

Salvation Palette – Give Them Nightmares (£6):

12 shimmer shades and 6 matte, at 33p per shadow. That and, well look at it. How gorgeous is everything, EVERYTHING to do with this palette. Never mind nightmares, this is like my dream palette!

So, that is my haul. A lot of fun to be had with it, but tell me, what caught your eye out of everything here?

  • Now that’s a good haul!

    I’m intrigued by the anti shine balm, so would be interested in hearing how you get on with it.

    Those pigments look great, but you know me and sparkly eyeshadow! ☺

    • Not bad for £30 including shipping :-)

      I will be working through things and will inevitably write about some of them. I’ll keep the anti shine balm in mind.

      And yes, your love of sparkly eyeshadows is legendary!

Go on, talk to me. I don't bite!
