Drugstore // Makeup Revolution and the 2 items you need to try



I'm a huge fan of drugstore, budget friendly products, but most importantly of good quality products that are worth the money - be that inexpensive or expensive items. We are not all in a financial position to constantly fill up our collection with high-end brands and let's be honest there are some pretty good drugstore products out there. So why not invest in some of them?

I love discovering new brands, trying out new things, testing out new products, and above all branch out and push my own beauty boundaries. When I found out about Makeup Revolution, I couldn't believe how cheap thir products were so I decided to try some out and let me tell you - they do not disappoint. 

Both of these palettes have a pretty minimalistic feel to it, and are perfect for traveling, as they are pretty sturdy and weight nothing at all. For the eyeshadow palette, I love that it comes with a clear lid and I don't have to open them, which at times, can be a hassle when you don't have much time to get ready. 


Iconic Pro Blush, Bronze, and Brighten Rave(£4.00) - There is absolutely no way I can describe how in love I am with this packaging. Or the colours. Or everything about it really. Here you have the contour, the highlighter, and the blush - all in one. How amazing is that? I had been in search of these three individually - because I'm so pale, I always ended up feeling like what I was putting on my face was either too dark or too pink, but these are perfect for my face even though they do have a bit of shimmer - it does not translate onto the face. I was honestly shocked to find that I loved all three in one single palette.

What I love the most is that there's a pelette for each skin tones, for example, I find that 'Flush' is perfect for darker skin tones, while 'Smoulder' is ideal for either one, and 'Rave', better on paler skin. The texture on all of them is also pretty spectacular - a stor of creamy soft that gets picked up easily by a brush.  

All of these can be worn quite subtly, but can also be as easily built up to look as intense as you wish. And they also blend quite easily - creating a beautiful glow on your cheeks. 

It has definitely made its way onto my daily make up routine. 


Redemption Palette Essentials Mattes 2 - (£4.00) - I think at a point or another in our lives we have all found ourselves thinking about the Urban Decay Naked Palettes. Then thinking about the prices, and wondering if they are really worth the money (they are). If you're not one who can justify spending so much money on a palette, and has been looking for a pretty similar one, that'll do the same job, this is the right palette for you. Beware though, that you should not expect the same quality. 

Let's just take a moment to look at the gorgeous colour shades. They are extremely pigmented - especially the darker ones, and I've been a bit obsessed with using it ever since discovering it. I've always been about the nude tones, which is why I purchased it. These are not completely matte colours, as they have a bit of shimmer to them, but they are so good and beautiful - the pigmentation and texture are better than expected for a palette at this price, and there's really no way you can do wrong with them. 

The only downside of this is that you will not get alot of product at first, and you have to rub off the top layer of each shadow. They are also not as easily blended as the Urban Decay ones, but they still do a pretty amazing job.



Have you tried any product by this brand? If so, did you like the products? If not, are you thinking about getting any of them? Let me know what you think.

Also, don't forget to check me out on Bloglovin' and if you do, let me know so I can check you out as well.

    1. Don't worry about it love! I'm sure you'll get to try it soon. I'm a bit on the no spending ban right now too - spent too much on Christmas. Let's see if I can keep up.

      But when you can, do try it, it's so inexpensive and really good.

  4. I have tried the Iconic Redemption 3 from Makeup revolution and while I liked it, I was a little disappointed by the pigmentation. Don't get me wrong, it is great value for money, but I think I am a little spoiled when it comes to blendability and pigmentation.

    1. Really? I actually liked the pigmentation on this but of course, it's not the best I've encountered. But it's great for its price! I do feel like we're all a bit spoiled when we're used to using such great brands (I'm guilty of that myself - I refuse to wear any other mascara on the daily basis other than Estée Lauder, although I do try! My lashes just love it too much ahahah)
