Today's post is to accompany a video I uploaded to my Youtube channel, is a very picture heavy post but I wanted to show you many different aspects of the products mentioned.
Way back in the summer time, around June, I was contacted by the lovely Makeup Revolution, a brand I am sure you have heard a lot about. I was kindly asked by Makeup Revolution if I'd like to try out some of their products, I said yes please and shortly after I received a parcel containing a few products.
When I received the products I thought a good way of showing them would be to film a Get Ready With Me using them for the first time on camera then you could see how the make up applied and what my first impressions were of the products I received. So that's what I did, I also wanted to show swatches of the products and be able to let you all know how the make up wore throughout the day after my initial first impressions, so I decided I would write a blog post to accompany that video and let you know my thoughts and show some swatches, so here goes....
The products I received were;

Pink Lights Highlight
Focus and Fix Eye Primer
When I swatched the eye shadows and highlight to take the above photographs I admit I was disappointed, and I didn't hold out much hope for the products much at all, but when I used them I was both surprised and very pleased, the eye shadows were very pigmented as was the highlight and both products applied beautifully. The eye shadows blended well, just as well as any of my MAC shadows do and like I said the pigmentation was amazing. The eye primer had a thin consistency but blended into my lids with ease and kept my shadows in place all day without creasing, I have extremely oily eye lids and always use an eye primer every time I apply my makeup otherwise I experience horrendous creasing, but this was a great product my shadows looked great when I went to remove my make up and hadn't creased at all. The highlight applied beautifully and again the pigmentation was amazing, I don't like to use a lot of highlight and I literally just dabbed my brush with a very light hand into the highlight but as you'll see from the video, it gave a lovely sheen to the skin. The lipstick was insanely pigmented and applied well, in hindsight I should have used a brush to apply it as it is a red shade but I went straight in with the bullet and it was fine, as you'll see from the photographs below the lip colour lasted really well.
How did the make up wear?
All the products wore extremely well and lasted all day, the eye shadows didn't crease at all and lasted really well and the lipstick didn't bleed at all and again lasted really well as did the highlight.
I took some photographs of my lips and eyes (and totally forgot the highlight for some reason) just before I took my make up off at 7.45pm so around 8 hours after I'd applied the make up.
Please excuse the flash (and the wrinkles) I hate close up photographs and trying to take them yourself is even harder, but I hope you can see from the photographs how well the make up lasted, the eye shadow wasn't creased and still looked lovely and although the majority of the lipstick had come off you can still see some of the colour, I hadn't eaten anything but had drank throughout the day, if I had wanted to touch up my lipstick I would have needed to after around 5 hours so a really great wear time of the make up.
Overall I was really impressed with the products I tried, and would say they performed as well as any of my high end make up and for the price of these products that is amazing, you really can't go wrong at all with the products from Make up Revolution and I would love to try some more of their products, they have some lovely matte lip products and blush sticks I'd love to try out, and if they're anything like the products I have tried they'll be fabulous.
I am extremely impressed with the brand, they're service was excellent, they were lovely to speak to via email and the products I received are not only lovely products but fabulous in terms of value for money and also longevity too, the packaging was good too, I expected it to be really cheap feeling because the price of the products is so good but it isn't at all it is sturdy and I had no problems at all with any aspects of the packaging.
I highly recommend Makeup Revolution and urge you to try their products sooner rather than later, you won't be disappointed, they really are fantastic!
