First Impressions | Makeup Revolution

When this brand first came out last month yo couldn't move for seeing posts or tweets about them. Of course, this took my interest and when I found that they had created some Naked Palette dupes, include a dupe of the Naked 3 which I still haven't decided if I 'need' I had to place an order. Lucky for me Superdrug at a 3 for 2 on makeup, all the more reason to give some things a test.

So i'm going to start with the product i'm least impressed with. It can be hard to find a good eye primer from the drugstore and I was hoping that this would change that. It has a slightly watery texture and applies clear. It does seem to make eyeshadow apply nicely however after a few hours I did notice some slight  creasing, nothing extreme but definitely not a stand out. It is an okay product but I prefer the ELF eye primer if you're looking for an affordable option.

Now this product I have been impressed with. I really like baked blushes as they can give a lovely sheen to the cheeks and this one definitely does that. The packaging is simple but feels nice and sturdy. The product feels soft and blends really nicely. It is also very pigmented so you really don't need a lot of product and it lasts on the skin all day. The shade Loved Me The Best is a lovey shimmer peachy rose shade which is very wearable. I definitely will be tempted to try more shades from this range.

Finally onto the Naked 3 dupe, as I mentioned I don't own the Naked 3 palette but from what i've seen the shades do seem to be pretty good dupes. Again the packaging of this is nice and simple yet doesn't feel cheap. The majority of the shades are pink toned which I personally find a little hard to wear. The shades do feel creamy and are easily blended with each other. As you can see from the swatches all the shades are well pigmented included the 3 matte shades. The light cream shade is the least pigmented over the rest show up really nicely. I don't find I get much fallout with these however with the matte shades when I go to get some product from the pan there is some fallout which is my only real downside. The shades for me aren't the most wearable but that is personally preference, on a whole I think it is a good palette and I will get some use out of it. 

So that's my thoughts on the products i've tried from Makeup Revolution. All in all I would say i'm pretty impressed. The eyeshadows seems great quality for the price, however my standout is the baked blush which I can see myself using a lot. 

Have you tried anything from Makeup Revolution? If so what we're your thoughts?
