Review & Swatches: Makeup Revolution Ultra Blush Palette

If you read my Makeup Revolution haul here, you will know that I’m a huge fan of the brand, and everything I have tried from them so far. The absolutely stunning Ultra Blush and Contour Palette in Golden Sugar (£6) is no exception to this.

Isn’t it beautiful?

As with all of Makeup Revolution’s products, this palette feels really sturdy and well made, the lid closes properly and there’s a generously sized, quality mirror. For £6, you get 8 shades, which works out to be less than 75p each, so this is really amazing value for money – especially considering the quality of the product.

The formula of the shades is really great, they’re creamy, making them a dream to apply, without any patchiness in sight. You only need a light hand with these, as they are all really pigmented, but they blend out really easily giving a lovely finish.

Shade 1, which is a crystal white highlight shade looks quite scary in the pan, but once it’s blended out it’s absolutely gorgeous and one of my favourites from this palette. Another one of my favourite shades is 3, which is a satin finish pink colour which looks lovely as an everyday blush. Shade 8, is the matte bronzer from the palette, which is great for adding some warmth to my face. I personally wouldn’t be able to contour with this shade as I have quite a light skintone, but for deeper tones I think it would be perfect.

  • These shades look gorgeous! x

  • The pigmentation is amazing! The only problem I have with them is they realize so many palettes in such a short time that I am drawing in all the new releases.

    I am absolutely obsessed with makeup revolution. I have two of their other blush palettes and a bronzing palette. I wish this wasn’t sold out when i went to get it.

    • Me too, Makeup Revolution are fab aren’t they! Ooo which palettes have you got? That’s such a shame – hope you can get your hands on it soon! x

  • Oh my gosh, the shades are all beautiful! I’m not crazy about 7 and 8, but considering I love the other shades… And at six pounds, it’s a total bargain!

    • It’s so gorgeous isn’t it! Me too, I doubt I will get that much use out of 7 and 8, I might try them as eyeshadows instead! xx

  • Lauren Napper

    This looks absolutely amazing, the colours look gorgeous! I am always a bit dubious when trying out brands like revolution, i’m always a bit worried that they’ll have great pay off, I am intrigued to try this one though! 🙂 lovely post and love your blog! xx

  • That brush is life!
