Budget makeup brand- Makeup Revolution

Hey Everyone! While being at Ulta and scanning the drugstore aisles as i do, i came across a new display of a brand i had never seen before called MAKEUP REVOLUTION LONDON, the products looked promising and the display had so much to choose from, eyeshadow palettes, blushes, highlighters, so much more….so this being a new brand I held myself from buying a lot but did buy some products that i want to talk about…


I bought the Iconic 1 Redemption Eyeshadow Palette (Price-$7) as it reminded me a lot of the Urban Decay Naked Palette. The palette is an almost dupe for the Urban Decay Naked except the shimmery shades in UD are much more intense. Although the shimmery shades are nice, but you can use the shimmery shades wet to intensify them.



Its a pretty warm toned palette, it has 12 shadows. It has a cream highlight color a champagne highlight color, matte browns, gold, coffee color & dark colors like gun metal gray. The colors as you can see are quite pigmented and buttery except for the third one which did not show up at all.


The next product I really enjoy using is the Makeup Revolution Pro Illuminate (Price-$7.00). Its such a generous highlighter, the pan is huge and a little goes a long way. The powder is so soft, the best way i have found to use this highlighter is with a wet beauty blender it gives such an intense glow, it’s not glittery at all, looks luminous, it is absolutely stunning.

Don’t even get me started on the price…it’s like it’s almost too good to be true, you get an amazing quality highlighter in a huge pan for such a fraction of a price. Its perfect for someone on a budget also for someone who is not on a budget because it is that awesome!!! I highly recommend this product, it is going to last me forever.

The next Product I love from is the Makeup Revolution Vivid Shimmer Brick in Radiant. This comes in two shades Radiant & Rose Gold. I have the Radiant Glow, I was swept off my feet to see how soft it felt to the touch with super glow pigmentation. It has five different highlighting strips, you can apply just the lighter colors, or just the dark colors, or swirl & blend them all for a beautiful result. The price of the shimmer brick will knock your socks off, especially when you compare it to all of the high end highlighters that are currently so popular right now. Yes Mam, only $7 and it is one of THE most beautiful highlighters that I have ever tried, I would place it right next to my all time favorite Opal from Becca.

The best thing about it is that the powder of the highlighter is so finely milled that it will not accentuate any imperfections on my aging skin rather add a luminous glow. So run don’t walk becoz you need this in your life….

Lets talk a little about the Makeup Revolution Baked Blusher (Price- $5.00) I have the color in ‘Loved Me The Best’. Its a baked blush with a hint of sheen. I ordered this online and it is a cooled toned pink. It is quite sheer but adds nice healthy flush to the skin. I usually have to mix this one with another blush to add some more color. The texture of the blush feels dry to the touch but applies nicely and stayed on my cheeks for 4-5 hours.

This color will be gorgeous on fair skin, on medium skin tones it adds a nice sheen with little color payoff. I wouldn’t say you must have this but for the price it does the job really well.

Makeup Revolution Fortune Favors the Brave Palette – Makeup Revolution’s Fortune Favors the Brave Ultra 30 Eyeshadow Palette has 30 shades of matte, glimmer and sheen combined in one golden palette for an every which-way smoky eye. From the lightest of brightening base colors to the darkest, most daring shades of navy, black and green and everything in between, Fortune is the most versatile, every-age, every-tone palette yet. the shadow texture is a dry,I strongly suggest an eye makeup primer. The only thing i dont like is, it has an kind of cheap plasticy palette that is almost impossible open. I struggle to get it open either without chipping my nail or ruining my manicure…I love how many colors that this palette has, as you can see in the swatches there are some duds but most colors are nicely pigmented and workable.


After trying these products from this brand, it has quickly become my favorite. It’s a great brand to buy from if you don’t want to spend tons of money on makeup, are on a budget & yet get nice quality products. I think I have become addicted to MUR & want to try everything from the line, so every time i place an online Ulta order i have to add something from this line to my cart just coz it amazing and super affordable 😉 Have you tried these yet? Whats your thoughts on them 🙂 Until Next time!
