Makeup Revolution - Mini Haul and First Impressions

There is such a buzz about Makeup Revolution at the moment. So, you know me by now, there isn't a bandwagon without me hopping on it! I've been searching for their products for ages, but my local Superdrug doesn't stock them. So when I saw them when I was visiting my Mum and Dad back up North, I had to purchase a few bits!!
So, here are the products I picked up....

1. Redemption Eye Palette - Essential Mattes 2

I am a sucker for a nude palette! But with this one, I really love how these are all matte shades. Don't get me wrong, I love a bit of shimmer as much as the next person. But, it is handy to have a pallet of all mattes. I found these shadows really pigmented and easy to blend. Considering this palette is £4, I would say that it is totally worth the money. I wouldn't say that I would trade my Naked palette for it, but I have found it useful to combine the two palettes. It's got my recommendation.

2. Ultra Cream Contour Pallette

I went for this palette over the powder version as I have so many powder bronzers/contour sets I could open a beauty shop of my own. I want to experiment with more cream products. Other than foundation and concealer, I really only use powder products. I have loved this product so far. I really like how it has a ange of colours - this allows for a softer or more severe contour. I also like that it has the yellow shade, I find this works well under my eyes to get rid of my big, old bags! I'm still getting used to contouring with cream products, not my trusty hoola bronzer,  but as a whole this product is really good quality. Again, for £8, it definitely gets my seal of approval.

3. Baked Blusher - Hard Day

I initially picked this up because of how pretty it looked. You can see it's got a gorgeous, marbled texture throughout. This product is SO pigmented, a little really goes a long way. My extremely pink cheeks could vouch for that the first time I used it! I have a MAC blusher that is really similar to this, and I couldn't even tell you the difference in quality. For £2.50, this is an absolute steal! I would definitely recommend!

Seeing the price point for the Makeup Revolution products, I was worried that the quality wouldn't be there. But that really isn't the case. I will definitely be purchasing some more products from their range in the future. 

Have you tried any of the Makeup Revolution collection? Whats your favourite product?
