Makeup Revolution Ultra Contour Palette
Hey guys its Phoebe! Makeup Revolution is a fairly new brand, and one that is quickly becoming more and more known and loved. I've mentioned quite a few of their products in the past, such as their eyeshadow palettes, and I truly love this brand. One of my more recent purchases from Makeup Revolution is this Ultra Contour Palette. It has 8 shades to enhance your natural face shape.
The packaging is super sleek and looks professional which is rare for a high street product. It is only £8, so if you compare that to the ABH Contour Palette, it is £31 less and you also get extra two shades! I don't have the ABH palette so I can't accurately compare but there are plenty of reviews online that compare the two.
The first shade in the top row is a transparent setting powder. It is slightly more on the pink-toned side but its not noticeable once on your skin. I love this as an all-over face powder.
The next shade is a banana powder which I use everyday for setting my under eye concealer. This is great and helps prevent creasing. The yellow tones counteract the blue/purple.
The third shade is a buttery, champagne highlight. I love this as it gives the skin a really nice sheen on the tops of your cheekbones.
Finally, this is a white glitter highlight. This is my least favourite colour in the palette as personally I think it is very difficult to wear, too glittery and chalkier in texture compared to the rest of the palette, which are buttery.
There are three contour shades in the bottom row and one highlight.
The first contour shade I use everyday for bronzing my face. It gives my face a beautiful natural glow (without being shimmery)
The second, I use for contouring but I don't contour much. It is a perfect grey-toned brown for the hollows of your cheekbones to mimick a shadow.
The third contour shade is the least used as it is way too dark for me. The only way I use it is as an eyeshadow because it looks beautiful in the crease.
Lastly, this third highlight shade is a bronze, warm highlight which is surprisingly natural to the skin. it gives a lovely warm, radiant finish without too much shimmer in it.
All in all I think this palette is amazing for the price as the majority of the shades are creamy and pigmented. I use at least 4 shades everytime I wear makeup and they sit beautifully on my skin.
Also, this is the first blogpost where I've used my camera (Nikon Coolpix L820) to take the photos. Hope you see a difference in quality and enjoyed this review!
