Review + Swatches | Makeup Revolution Ultra Blush Palette in Hot Spice


I recently did an Ulta haul (link here) and one of the new and exciting items I picked up was the Makeup Revolution Ultra Blush Palette in Hot Spice. I know that the brand Makeup revolution is originally from the UK, so the fact that it's hear in the US is really exciting! And probably the best part about the brand is the price point. This palette is only $10 - What?! If you're familiar with the brand elf (the cheapest makeup brand like ever) this palette is definitely in that range. With elf you can get a four-blush palette for $6 and here you are getting 8 blushes and highlights for only $10. AND since this is only sold at Ulta, you can use a $3.50 coupon and get it for around $7!

Before I bought this palette though I did my research. It was a newer brand and I wanted to scout out the different products and the pigmentation. I was instantly drawn to this and the swatches I saw online looked perfect.

So, after trying this I can you what I really think about! Spoiler: I love it!

Starting off with the blushes, there are four shimmers and two mattes. The shimmers are gorgeous, all very different and the shimmer is very subtle. As for the mattes, I find them to be very similar. I found the matte on the top row is not as pigmented as the matte on the bottom row. I have very pale skin, so for me this works and I can just build up the color. But for darker skin tones, you might have an issue with the more sheer shades. 

As for the other blush shades, I think these could work for darker skin tone! The colors are very pigmented, but when you tap your brush into they are not powdery.

As for the baked products, they are so beautiful! They have a duo-chrome look to them and I think that makes these so beautiful and unique. The top one I love using as a highlighter, and the bottom one I love to even use as a blush or a blush topper. 

Overall, I think this is a beautiful palette that anyone can add to their collection. The price is great, and I think especially if you're on a budget this palette is so versatile and it has everything you could need!

Keep reading for pictures and swatches!
