Makeup Revolution Haul #2 – The eye products
Before you all go telling me that I pledged to do the Shop My Stash challenge, let me just stop you there – I ordered this before the challenge 😉
Anyways, I’m really excited about this brand by now! The first shipment is turning out to be great so of course I couldn’t wait to open this one and try it out. This time I’ll limit it to the eye-products because it’s going to be a lengthy post. Part two is coming up!
They have the 5 Baked Eyeshadows in five different versions – a pinkish called Chocolate Deluxe, a brownish called Pure and Innocent, a greenish called Beyond Eden, a purple called Electric Dreams and the blue that I got called Bang Bang.
I love both the green and brown ones, but especially the purple. By far my favorite. I just have so many purple eyeshadows and no blue ones, so I went with Bang Bang. I’m really happy I did because the blue really suits my brown eyes!
This is what the colors look like up close. They’re not as pigmented as the other palettes I have from Makeup Revolution but they work just fine anyways. I don’t actually have a clue what the difference between a normal eyeshadow and a baked eyeshadow is supposed to be but this definitely isn’t the last baked eyeshadow I’m going to own 😉
I think this is the first time I’m actually posting my face on the blog. I’m having a really crappy full-of-pain day so the smile looks a little forced and I don’t look like front-cover material (but do I ever?) but the main point is that you can see what the eyeshadow looks like in use. I’ve used the three shadows on the right of the box, leaving out the white and the black ones. The little applicator is very cute but I don’t think it’s really useful for anything so I definitely recommend an actual brush.
I’ve just used a standard primer from E.L.F. and this is taken 4 hours after I did my makeup so I’m very surprised the under-eye area is still looking okay!
The second eye product is the palette.
I was in love with the Girls on Film Salvation Palette but I just had most of those shades so I decided to be bold and try something new. The Dia de los Muertos palette is definitely different from the others in the line with it’s bright, but wearable, colors.
I haven’t used this one yet but I did a few swatches to try it out. The pigmentation is fine, although not as great as their standard palettes which I got last time.
Looking forward to seeing how often the yellow one will be used 😉
These are some of the more POP colors as well as two of the more standard ones. My camera flat-out refused to focus so I apologize for the blur. Even though I say they’re not as pigmented as the others, these swatched were made with just two rubs of the finger which I think it’s absolutely fine and way more than you could expect from a 6 pound palette.
Next time I’ll write about the lip products from this time and see if I can get around to properly reviewing the palettes and shadows from last time. There were 5 palettes and 9 shadows so I’m really trying my best to use them enough for me to review them 😉
What do you think about Makeup Revolution? And do you like the palette I bought? 😉
