Ahoy there! Time for part 2 of my crazy Makeup Revolution haul, and probably the favourite things I picked up – palettes!
I have wanted one of the blush palettes for ages, so I grabbed this one in ‘Golden Sugar’. As I already have a blush that I love (Sleek’s Rose Gold), I wanted some more bronze-y ones that I could use for summer.
Can we all just take a second to appreciate the beauty of this palette?
I almost don’t have words. The marbling of all the shimmer colours makes me feel things I honestly didn’t know makeup could make you feel.
Out of all the shades, the only one that doesn’t swatch so well is the dusky mauve shade. Unfortunately they don’t have names, but it’s the third one along on the top row!
For the rest of them, oh my goodness. The bronzer shades especially feel so velvety it’s almost as if they are a cream. They’re all, with the exception of the aforementioned one, really pigmented. I cannot wait to use the first one on the second row – it’s difficult to see in the swatch because this baby just melts into my skin, leaving the most subtle shimmer ever. Although the white one is stunning it’s a bit harsh as a highlight, so I’ll probably use this as an eyeshadow instead!
Next is the Affirmation Palette.
I already have the matte palette, which I still love, but this one is just a whole other level of amazing. I think they’ve changed the formula for these, because they’re a lot softer than the mattes, which I thought were already creamy! Seriously, some of these shimmers are so pigmented they could be foils.
Some of the shadows seem to have a teensy bit of fallout, more the matte shades than the shimmers, and the palette does not stay closed at all, so I’m a bit nervous about travelling with it!
However these shadows are amazing. Honestly, if you’re going to get anything I would recommend this. I really wish my photography skills were better so you could see how beautiful these swatches are in real life because I was so excited! Seriously, I was just making weird noises because I couldn’t articulate words.
I really don’t have much to say about it because I’m a bit speechless. They’re stunning. If you can, buy them. I can’t wait to wear them. Cool.
What do you all think?
Much Love xoxo
