Woo! Makeup Revolution sent me a few goodies to try out. I had to pick it up from the sorting office as I was working when it was delivered and it was one of those ‘I have no idea what this is’ kind of packages. It was wrapped in loads of bubble wrap, I sat in my car unraveling for what felt like hours.

When I finally got to the goods, I felt like they must have climbed inside my head and then sent me what I would have picked for myself.

Or maybe they just read my blog and saw that I’m a gold/rose eyeshadow monster.

They sent me 2 eye primers – one in original and one in matte. The matte one is supposed to suit matte shadows more. Interesting. At £2.50 you can’t really fault it – I’ve been using Lemon Aid by Benefit which cost me around £16.

The real hero of the package was this Salvation Palette. They sent me ‘What you waiting for’ which is a mixture of 12 shimmer shadows and 6 mattes.

I bought the Naked 3 palette a few months ago and I just haven’t fell in love with it as much as I did the Naked 2 – I loved the idea that there were more rose gold tones, but they weren’t the shades I was expecting or wanting. It’s been in my overnight bag since I stayed at the Queens Hotel last month, untouched and unloved.

I’ve been using a Mac pink shimmer shadow along with my gold L’Oreal Colour Riche to get the pink/gold combo I wanted.

I swatched some of my favourite shimmery shades and they’re stunning. The matte shades are really pigmented and it really makes me question how one brand can charge £35 for something and another charge only £6 and get the same quality product.

The staying power is great too! I used the primer and then the palette at 6am, worked over 11 hours and when I got home after 7pm, the eyeshadow looked pretty much the same. If that’s not a win, I don’t know what is.

There are a few different palettes in the Salvation Palette range that cost £6 each. The different palettes have various colour themes in them –  from bright, explosive colours to more sexy, smokey but natural shades. You can visit Makeup Revolutions range of palettes here.

  1. I’ve had a look at the brand but I’ve yet to buy something from them. I’m not a big fan of the neutral eye shadows but these sound quite good!

  2. I really love smoky colours so this pallet has lots of the colours I like. I have not given into the temptation of any of the naked pallets but I do like looking at the reviews and how wonderful people say they are. Shame that you haven’t loved number three maybe at different times of the year you might like it.

    The staying power of this pallet sounds great as someone that doesn’t change their day to evening make up Lucy x

  3. Tempted to pick up a primer, I’m usually wary of cheap ones (I use loose shadow and the MUA one didn’t do so great) but even my UDPP has been creasing on my lately so any improvement is great.

  4. I’ve just tried my first palette by them, and can’t wait to try more. I’m a sucker for a bargain!
