Long overdue Makeup Revolution haul

I'm so glad Makeup Revolution made an appearance last year as I absolutely love their products, they bring out new releases so much I can't keep up! As I type this I'm wishing I bought a few other things when I made this purchase! But hey ho, I'll just have to buy the other things next time...

I've seen photos of the Atomic lipsticks and the blush palettes pop up all over their Instagram and I knew I needed to get my hands on them. I've been wanting to try some new bold colours so I thought I would give these a go. The green shade is very out my comfort zone, but I couldn't stop myself buying it. They're also my first Makeup Revolution lipsticks, it's possibly the only things I never got round to trying so far. And for the prices you can't not have an excuse to try any of the ranges.

These are the three Atomic lipsticks I bought, I thought I would get a mixture of the colour range that was available and I've been trying to break into dark brown lipsticks for a while. There is also a beautiful colour called Magnificent, which wasn't there when I bought these.. but looks absolutely amazing! (sad I didn't get it). These lipsticks are only £1.00!! what an absolute steal.

The lipsticks have a lovely sheen to them once applied, but they are quite sheer colours so it takes a few swipes to get the opaque colour I expected. I did think they would be more opaque than they are but they're still a nice shade regardless, and very true to the colour you see in the packaging. I also found that they cling to dry parts of your lips so you are best off using a lip scrub before applying them. I do love the colours of these lipsticks though so I am overly impressed, just a few things I wish were different!

I decided to get the Golden Sugar palette which is £6.00, it is a mixture of blushes, bronzers and highlighters. I found the top colours to be more of a highlighter/light blush and the bottom colours seem more of a bronzer type colour. They all have glitter in, but they aren't too glittery to a point they look ridiculous! I have been using the first colour for a highlight on my brow bone as I find it a little too white for my pale skin. The only colour I have been slightly avoiding is the gold colour, as I'm not too sure where to use this on my skin.. I could use it on my eyes no problem! I do absolutely love this palette though, and think there is a great selection for all skin tones.

First is blush stick, I decided on Matte Malibu as I've been wanting a cream blush to try for contouring for a long time. This colour is a great dupe for the Nars Matte Multiples and at £5.00 it's a bargain compared to £30.00 Nars version. This is so creamy and amazing to blend, I have been applying this under my cheekbones for a contouring effect. I can't use the full side to blot as I find the tube a bit bulky, so I have to use the edge to get the line I want.

Next is the Ultra Aqua Brow Tint in Medium, I loved the look of this when I saw them post it on twitter and knew I wanted to try it. I love Anastasia Brows as I love the smooth lines the gel gives, so I thought a liquid would have an even smoother line.. which it did! It was also surprisingly easy to apply to my brows in the way I wanted it. 

I'm really happy with everything I ordered, just only wish I had bought the new chocolate palette.. and the new brushes.. and evereything else. What do you think about what I got? Is this anything you're after from their ranges at the moment?
