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.
