A Makeup Revolution Introduction

A good few weeks ago, I was very kindly invited to the launch event of Makeup Revolution, which took place yesterday. Makeup Revolution being the newest, purse friendly brand to hit online - Superdrug launching 9th of April, you can buy here at their online store too. Makeup Revolution are bringing some of the hottest looks to one of our favourite high street chains, so you can experiment at home, Makeup Revolution are bringing us intense statement colours to everyday neutrals and more. With prices ranging from £1 - £12, it doesn't break the bank and will have you creating up-to-date looks everyday, there's something for everyone with an impressive collection of different shades to suit everyone's skin tone.

Me and Laura (Blogger of Petit Moi - Big World) arrived together at a very posh hotel, of course it was just standard to me, because I go to hotels like that all the time - obviously ;). We were warmly greeted and shown around by a lovely lady, who explained all the products to us in great detail. We met some of the team and I was my very quiet self, I'm not really quiet (as the saying goes until you get to know me). I'm a thinker, not a talker, I process the information and it was a LONG two days. Anyways, I was very thankful to be invited being one of the teeny bloggers in this huge world of them and meeting some people that I've felt like I've known for ages. And I'm still coming up with my plan to steal Blondie the Makeup Revolution pooch, too cute! - This post is photo heavy.

I'm seriously impressed with the collection and the choice of shades to go with each products. One of my favourite products from the brand is The One Foundation, this is available in an impressive 16 shades going from extremely light to very dark, I don't think it's just me who believes this has been lacking from the high street, a lot of brands lack a good choice of shades. You won't be disappointed by the formula either, it's thin and light as a feather, you don't need a lot of product either and it blends out very well - £4.00  
(Please note: Swatch was only done on the hand)

The guest were very kindly given a bag of Makeup Revolution cosmetics.

The Matte Effect foundation is available in 8 shades for just £2.00. The shade I was given was Natural Beige, I was a little wary of this shade at first but it blended into my hand beautifully, whether it does on my face is another story but again like The One Foundation, it was light and lovely in texture.

If there's anything I love in the land of beauty it is nail polish. Makeup Revolution have an amazing collection of normal and glitter nail lacquer in over 50 shades, retailing between £1-£1.50 each, impressive right? I got the shade Trust Me which is a gorgeous teal (Which I love). It did take four coats to swatch this but I imagine it would apply with two on actual nails, the finish is out of this world, very smooth. I'd like to see Makeup Revolution, up their game when it comes to nail polishes and create some exciting nail polish ideas - I have a good few in my head.

I know exactly what you're thinking. Wow, right? I thought exactly the same, in reality this is actually a beautiful, wearable palette. Think straight off the catwalk of all makeup looks. This palette, Acid Brights is perfect for those not afraid of colour and makeup artists, with this you could potentially create some beautiful makeup art. Inside are 12 beautiful, bright statement shades, each are buildable for an intense look or great for a softer more wearable look. Some shimmer and some matte, it's just one of many palettes available from Makeup Revolution and retails for just £4.00.

Now this beauty is Awesome metals foil finish. I love these, completely 'awesome'. The pigmentation is incredible and just look at that beautiful shimmer. These retail for £5 each but come with a little pan and some primer. My shade is Magnificent copper and these are available in five shades.

I'm in love with the Salvation Intense lip lacquer, the pay off is incredible when it comes to colour. This swatch is just one swipe, for a lip gloss that is pretty groovy. What's even more groovy, these are only £3.00, THREE POUNDS!!! And come in 7 shades. They also have these in Matte, again available in 7 shades. My shade is A Love Like That.

I love this too, the vivid baked highlighter in peach lights - just £3.00. It's a hard one to swatch, but looks beautiful on (I went to the event with fellow blogger Laura and she had a makeover and the finish of this product looked amazing on her). Not only does it look pretty, the shimmer is gorgeous. Can see this selling well.

Who would of thought, a lipstick can brighten your day not just in shade but in quote. Shade being, Life Is What You Make It - so true. This is a power duo, lipstick on one side and a lip gloss on the other. The lipstick is creamy and buildable for an intense look whilst the lip gloss makes it fun and girly with added shimmer. Again fantastic value at £3.00 and available in 6 shades.

Vivid Baked Bronzer is just £4.00. This shade is golden days. Fab for giving a natural summer glow all year round, can be used for subtle softer look or buildable for a more dramatic look.

Amazing lipsticks, are very amazing affordable at £1.00 and incredibly creamy with a lovely pigmentation. Shade I got was The One. There are 30 shades available in every colour you can think of.

Also given was Amazing Lengths Mascara this retailing for £1.50 available in 4 shades. I got the clear which will be interesting to try out, having never used a clear mascara before. Happy to see that the mascara brush isn't at all bulky.

I think it's clear to see after first impressions how much I'm loving the brand. Everything is so pretty and been well thought of before going through the build up process. The packaging is great considering the price, yes it's pretty basic but the rose gold lettering is pretty.
