Makeup Revolution Haul & Swatches

One of my favourite new companies of 2015 was Makeup Revolution. They are a UK based company who are cruelty free! This was my second order after I loved the first so much and I couldn't resist their January sale.

One of the things that I love the most that they do, is their palettes. I have so many now and I can't stop lusting after more!


I Heart Sin Palette

First off, how lush is this packaging? I love the purple heart on this. It contains 16 palettes, a mirror and a double ended smudger foam brush.


This palette has a real mix of colours, with some incredibly bright mattes, some shimmers, and some more normal matte shades too. Having such a mixture might seem a bit of an odd choice, but actually, there are groups of colours that would work so well together, making this an ideal palette for travelling light.


I decided to swatch 3 of the bright mattes, and 3 of the shimmers. The bronze shimmer hasn't shown up so well on camera, but it looked amazing! I'm not much of one for bronze or gold tones, but Makeup Revolution have really converted me. The bright matte pink in particular was seriously impressive in how pigmented it was, these could be built up so easily.


5 Baked Eyeshadows - Electric Dreams

Baked eyeshadow was a new discovery for me last year, and in my first Makeup Revolution order I snagged myself one of these baked sets and loved it so much I had to get some more. The colours work so well together and again are ideal for travel with their small size.


How beautiful are these colours? I tend to use eyeshadow as eyeliner as I am terrible at applying eyeliner, and sets like this are ideal for that.

I also opted for this more blue toned baked set as I thought it would look gorgeous for a good smokey eye.


And look at these swatches! I can't wait to create a look with this.


I am Sexy Palette

The I Am range is a 6 eyeshadow palette and a lipstick in a certain theme. This aims to create a smokey eye with a vampy red lip. These would make really cute presents, and are easy to pop in your handbag.

Awesome Metals Eye Foils Pure Platinum
Awesome Metals Eye Foils Black Diamond

I couldn't resist ordering these to try out! These foils are super intense metallics and I cannot wait to give these a go. I didn't swatch them as they involve mixing the foil with primer, however I have done a very quick look with them.


This took me minutes and still came out really nicely, with a bit more care and attention you could easily do a very pigmented and sparkly look.

Ultra Velour Lip Cream in Don't bring me down
Ultra Velour Lip Cream in Not one for playing games
Salvation Velvet Lip Lacquer in Vamp
Salvation Velvet Lip Lacquer in Rebel
Salvation Velvet Lip Lacquer in Keep lying for you

Matte lips were huge in 2015, and that trend isn't going anywhere this year. These are only £3 each (I got them on sale at £1.50!) and tend to sell out really quickly, so I snagged 5 because well... it would be rude not to! I love all the sassy names!


How lush are these? I prefer the finish of the lip lacquers to the lip creams, and they are SO pigmented. The very first day I wore one of the lip lacquers I ended up helping my Auntie order some and my Mum is desperate for them.

Wearing 'Rebel'


This is 'Keep lying for you' and I look damn cute in it! My eyes in this are the Pure Platinum foil I mentioned above.


This lip lacquer has serious staying power. These photos were taken at 8:30, then 10:30, 14:30, and 17:30. I ate wearing it, drank hot and cold drinks and had a hideous cold so blew my nose a lot. I was so impressed. You can't ask for more for £3. The top 2 photos are lit with natural light, the bottom two are artificial which is why my skin tone changes slightly, no editing here.

I am sure it won't be too long before I make another order from Makeup Revolution, they are so well priced and such good quality, and being cruelty free they are a total dream! What are your favourite items that they make?

Much love,
Kitty xxxx
