MAKEUP REVOLUTION: HAUL & SWATCHES

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 009

Hi my beauties ❤

I recently discovered a new makeup brand from the U.K called “Makeup Revolution”. The prices of the makeup are all very cheap & I am absolutely loving the products I have tried so far. I placed two orders – both from their website – http://www.makeuprevolutionstore.com – They ship internationally & use Pay Pal (Thank Gooodnesss!!) If you know me, you know I love great, pigmented makeup that is not CRAZY expensive. I love finding cheap dupes that are actually good quality – or just great makeup that is cheap! Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy high-end makeup brands but being a makeup addict like myself, things tend to add up REAL quick. Therefore I just love finding less expensive but quality makeup. With that being said, I introduce you to MAKEUP REVOLUTION. Ah, my new addiction. I seriously want every single item from this line. As you can see from the above photo – my collection is slowly growing.

On the website everything is in British Pounds but you can easily change the currency to whatever country you are in (mine being Canada). As I said the prices are amazing for the product you are getting. In no particular order, I will be showing you all swatches with more info on each product I have.

 

❤ BAKED BLUSHER in “MAKE LOVE INSTEAD” ❤

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 010

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 015

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 016

This baked blush is beautiful – it adds a subtle, warm glow. It retails for $4.63 CAD which definitely is a steal. They have six baked blushers in total – so far this is the only one I have!

❤ POWDER BLUSH in “TREAT” ❤

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 063

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 064

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 066

This blush is a gorgeous creamy coral shade – it retails for $1.85 CAD! The packaging is a little flimsy but the shade is gorgeous and for less than $2.00 who could even complain?! They sell 6 other beautiful shades in their collection.

❤ LIQUID BLUSH in “HEAT” ❤

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 117

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 118

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 120

I got this liquid blush in “Heat”. It is a deep Terracotta shade with a touch of pinky warmth. This stuff is extremely pigmented. A little goes a LONG way, let me tell you. It retails for $5.55 CAD. I love the packaging and that it has a pump. This stuff will last you ages and if you love cream blushes you must get your hands on these! They have six shades in total.

❤ LIQUID EYELINER: Ultra Black

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 020

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 021

This liner retails for $2.78 CAD. It has a felt tip point that is very clean & sharp which I love. Here is a swatch:

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 022

❤ HIGHLIGHTERS ❤

So I purchased 2 out of the 3 highlighters this company has – they are sooo gorgeous. If you love a gorgeous glow – get your hands on these! They retail for $5.55 CAD.

“PEACH LIGHTS”

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 067

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 068

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 071

“GOLDEN LIGHTS”

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 073

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 075

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 078

As you can see these highlighters are gorgeous. My favorite is Golden Lights – I just love gold highlighters but they are both so beautiful. It’s said that Golden Lights is a dupe for Nar’s “Albatross” Highlight – which I can definitely see. This company is known for having a lot of dupes for high end products which I totally love!

On the topic of dupes, here is another dupe for the Stila Foil shadows which are crazy expensive. These are called “Awesome Metals Eye Foils”. They are beautiful and sooo pigmented. They retail $7.40 CAD. I picked up 2 shades out of the 5 they have.

❤ MAGNIFICENT COPPER ❤

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 082

  MAKEUP REVOLUTION 083

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 084

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 086

❤ ROSE GOLD ❤

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 087

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 088

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 089

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 094

As you can see they are so pigmented. They also come with a cute little mixing tray each and a liquid to mix with the “Foil” shadow to enhance it’s true color. The swatches were done without the liquid – just the shadow on it’s own.

❤ PURE PIGMENTS ❤

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 055

 I had to get my hands on some of these Pure Pigments. They have a bunch of shades and they are only $1.85 each! So amazing. I picked up seven shades.

SUPREME

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 040

VIRTUOUS

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 037

AFFLUENT

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 035

CONFRONT

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 033

DYNAMIC

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 025

RIVALRY

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 028

ANTIC

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 031

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 043

For the swatches I used the LASplash Waterproof Sealer as a base. The swatch of “Supreme” didn’t show that well but it is a gorgeous champagne/pink glitter shade. Just look at those colors – sooo gorgeous and the price is ridiculously cheap. If you love pigments you will LOVE these!!!! I want all of their shades now…. 😀

❤ Matte Lipstick in NUDE ❤

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 058

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 061

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 130A

This lipstick retails for $1.85 CAD. It is very matte and very nude! As you can see it almost looks like a “my lips but better shade”. The color will obviously vary on different skin tones. I think it’s very pretty and for the price you can’t beat it.

❤ VELVET MATTE LIP LACQUER

“KEEP FLYING FOR YOU”

 MAKEUP REVOLUTION 097

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 103

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 121A

“I FALL IN LOVE”

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 106

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 111

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 127A

(NOTE: The lip swatches look a little shiny because I didn’t let them fully dry before doing the next swatch – but these dry COMPLETELY matte)

These gorgeous Velvet Matte lipsticks retail for $5.55 CAD. They are simply gorgeous!!!!! There are 7 shades in this collection and I picked up these two. “Keep Flying For You” has to be my favorite! It is such an amazing creamy coral color. I have been on the hunt for a matte shade like this. The consistency is like the Limecrime Velvetine’s & the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks. The trick to making them not stick is to apply a thin coat and not to rub your lips together while it’s wet. I found that if I just add one pigmented layer and leave it to dry without rubbing my lips, it will dry completely matte & not give you any problems with sticking. Just look at those shades!!!!! sooo amazing.

MAKEUP REVOLUTION 113

 Swatches on my hand. From left to right: “I FALL IN LOVE” & “KEEP FLYING FOR YOU”

Aren’t the names adorable also? That’s what I love about this company too – such cute names! Here is a photo I just uploaded to my IG wearing the Makeup Revolution Velvet Lip Lacquer in “Keep Flying For You” (it is fully dry here so you can get an idea). I am also wearing the highlight in “Peach Lights” with their blush in “Treat” as well.
