Hey everyone, as you can expect from the title of this post today we are doing a Makeup Revolution Haul! I don’t actually understand why Revolution has so many different names. There’s Makeup Revolution, Revolution Pro, Revolution Beauty… It’s confusing is what it is. In this Makeup Revolution Haul I picked up two eyeshadow palettes, a foundation and a concealer. I can’t wait to share it with you guys!
My Main Makeup Revolution Haul
I picked up four products from Makeup Revolution/Revolution Beauty and because I spent over $35 I got a free mystery surprise bag. I love surprises! Let’s talk about the products I chose for myself first…
Revolution X Emily Noel | The Wants Palette
When I saw Emily Noel’s announcement video where she revealed that she was taking on a collaboration with Makeup Revolution I was so excited! Emily Noel is one of the most genuine people I watch on youtube, I’m so happy she was given this opportunity! I strongly debated ordering the Revolution X Emily The Needs palette but in the end I decided that I didn’t want a full face and eye palette. The Wants palette stood out more to me, I will be uploading a swatch video and blog post very soon.
The Emily Noel The Wants Palette is, for one thing, huge. There are so many shades in this palette I don’t even know how to store it. I can’t wait to play with this beauty! If you guys can’t tell, I updated my blog props for Fall. i’m loving the orange but let me know what you think.
Revolution X Soph Does Nails | Extra Spice Palette
The Extra Spice Palette caught my eye as I was about to add Emily’s palette to my cart. The yellows and oranges are so pretty, and I can’t get over the silver! It’s like pumpkin spice and holiday rolled into one palette! I’ve already filmed my first impressions video. Let me tell you: I am impressed with the Revolution Soph Extra Spice Palette.
Revolution Fast Base Stick Foundation
I wanted to try the Fast Base Foundation Stick after Melina recommended it to me. Many products that work for her also work for me, we have a similar skin type so it’s not really a surprise. This is my alternative to the Hourglass stick foundation. I tested a sample of it and loved it but it’s way too expensive. Hopefully this Revolution foundation stick works just as well! I’ve only worn it twice so far but so far so good!
Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer and Contour
Hey! Makeup Brands! Yeah you, I’m talking to you. Please stop giving your products ridiculously long names. Melina also recommended this concealer to me. I’m glad I tried it, I like it so far! It’s very affordable which I’m all about lately. It does a much better job at spot concealing than my Tarte Aquacealer, it’s thicker and provides more coverage.
Makeup Revolution Goodie Bag!!
I love surprises. I avoid spoilers like the plague in most things, like books, subscription boxes… (well, I usually peak and one or two subscription box spoilers but I still want at least one or two surprises). For spending over $35 I got a free $35 value Revolution Beauty mystery bag and I must say there were some pretty good products in there (aside from a silicone sponge that I’m not even going to talk about because silicone sponges are awful).
Makeup Revolution Ultra Base Corrector Palette
I was kind of hoping for an eyeshadow palette, but I will be happy with a colour correcting concealer palette too! I already have the Maybelline Master Camo Color Correcting Kit but cream concealer tends to get gross pretty fast so I’m happy to have a colour correcting replacement for that one.
The Ultra Base Corrector Palette contains 8 colour correcting shades. Here’s what they do according to MUR:
“Pink – Brightens
Lavender – neutralizes yellow tones
Green – neutralizes redness
Orange – neutralizes blue tones
Peach – helps to balance out slight discolouration
White – adds natural highlight and brightens
Cream – neutralizes purple & covers dark areas
Brown – balances ashiness in medium to dark skin tones”
Revolution Lightening Contour Kit
This Lightening Contour kit was a little odd. It’s not something that I would use to contour with. The darkest shade in the pan looks like a blush on my skin tone so if I contoured with it I would look swollen. There’s a lighter powder which I thought was a highlighter, but it has barely any visible glow to it so I’m confused. There’s also a cream highlighter and I hate having cream and powder products in the same compact, it gets very messy very quick.
Makeup Revolution Freedom Pro Bronzer in Warm Lights
I freaking LOVE this Revolution Pro Bronzer! This is the perfect bronzer for pale skin, there’s a combo of three different shades in this Freedom Bronzer and when I mix them all together it gives me the most gorgeous matte glow. I’m going to have to experiment with all three shades separately but as a whole I love it.
I Heart Revolution Lip Lava Lipstick
I always expect liquid lipsticks to be matte so it threw me off that this lip lava liquid lipstick was on the sheer & creamy side. It has one of those plush applicators like the Too Faced Melted lipsticks, so I wonder if this is supposed to be a dupe? This lipstick retails for $2 and is in the shade Forgiven.
Revolution Freedom Makeup London Pro Lipstick
I don’t have a single shade like this, I love that instead of just sending nude shades this Revolution Beauty goodie bag had some fun shades to get me out of my comfort zone. There’s no pressure when it’s free! This light pink shade Tell Your Friends isn’t something I would have chose for myself but I’m going to challenge myself to create a look using this lipstick.
Revolution Iconic Pro Lipstick
This Revolution Iconic Pro lipstick is a beautiful pink berry shade! I prefer matte to cream lipsticks but I like this shade No Perfection Yet so much that I’ll try wearing it. The packaging of this Iconic Pro lipstick is lovely with the shiny gold capsule but because it lacks weight it feels cheap to me. Hmm…
