Makeup Revolution Review With Swatches

Today I'm reviewing the Revolution Hot Spice blush palette and the Cheer and The One lipsticks. I've had my eye on this palette for ages: I don't actually own that many blushers, plus this contains a highlighting shade that looks absolutely gorgeous (and I'm obsessed with highlighter.) Here are my first impressions...lipsticks first!

The pink shade is Cheer and the nude is The One.
Cheer: This lipstick is like the grown-up version of glitter lip gloss. You can't quite tell from this picture but it's extremely sparkly! It's pretty sheer but has a beautiful finish. I am definitely going to be using this over other matte pinks too for a little sparkle. 

The One: This is a pink-tone nude (which I wasn't expecting as it looks quite brown-tone.) Again, it's quite sheer but both these lipsticks are buildable so you could always set them with powder if you wanted something more opaque. This is a pretty inoffensive nude if you're looking for a your-lips-but-nuder kind of lipstick (does that even make sense?) 
On to the palette! 

This is the Hot Spice palette. The packing is stunning and there's also a nice big mirror in it too. I chose this one because whilst some of the shades are similar, this palette contains both matte and shimmer finish shades. These swatches go in clockwise order from the top left
I absolutely love this. You can see that some of the colours are more pigmented than others (the orange-tone blusher is extremely so) but the soft pinks still have very good pigment (seriously, I advise a gentle hand when playing with these!) I am also so excited by this highlighter (the top right colour.) It's a beautiful pink toned highlight (not too pink like a lot of ones I have tried in my time.) 

Edit: I've tried two of these blushes already and the colour lasts. all. day. Obsessed!  

A very successful Makeup Revolution haul. Have you tried any of these? Let me know! xo


  1. Make up revolution seems class.
    I ordered some lipsticks from there but I should definitely give the palettes a go.
    This looks so fab.
    I may have to make a repurchase in the future.
