If you haven’t heard of Makeup Revolution by now, then you must have spent the last two years on Mars. I’m naff with brand names, celebrities, general news and even I know about Makeup Revolution.
I think they’re quite clever, to be honest. When the brand first launched, they worked with LOADS of bloggers. Not just big bloggers, either, but bloggers of a whole range of sizes. I’ve seen review after review of products featured on peoples blogs and they’ve done their marketing perfectly, I think.
But enough about that, I’m here to talk to you about one of their palettes I recently bought. The Makeup Revolution Affirmation Palette.
Just what I need, another natural palette to add to my collection, right? The thing is, I’ve ran out of my favourite shade in my Naked 3 palette. Well, I’ve ran out of it twice over as my housemate Christine gave me hers and that’s all gone now. The shade is dust, if you’re interested. They don’t sell it separately and I can’t find anything that comes close to the shimmery golden ever so slightly rose colour and I’m mourning the loss of.
There isn’t a single other colour in my Naked 3 palette that I’ve hit pan on, so I didn’t want to buy a whole new one just for the one shade, so I’ve been seeking cheaper alternatives.
Enter the Affirmation Ultra 32 Eyeshadow Palette, a massive palette that contains 32 shadows. It has golds, browns, coppers, rose golds, purples and smokey shades so it’s a great go to for all your shadowy needs.
I love the amount of choice in this palette, it’s useful for day time and night time looks and I’ve been making an extra special effort to get some use out of the blues and purples. Oh yes that’s right. I have been stepping out of my comfort zone. Go me.
I have to admit though, they don’t apply as well as the Naked palettes, which I always find to be creamy and pigmented. You do have to build the colours up, but it’s an £12.99 palette so it’s not fair to compare it to a £35 one.
