Makeup Revolution London Blush Palette in Blush Goddess.

Is it just me who thinks Superdrug are truly outdoing themselves lately with Super High Quality Affordable Makeup Brands? I think not!  One of my latest discoveries is to the amazing Makeup Revolution and in this post I will be reviewing their Blush Goddess Palette – which was my first introduction to Highlighter!

Not only are their products quality and long lasting, but they are incredibly affordable – what could be better?! Therefore, as soon as I saw and tried out this wonderful Blush Palette in, “Blush Goddess” I knew that I simply had to purchase one for myself. At just £6, yes you read that correctly, you get eight blushes; four of them are matte shades and the other four are shimmer shades. Each blush is highly pigmented and perfect if you love a rosy pink glow for the Spring and Summer Seasons, or all year round if you’re like myself and stay away from the bronzing.

I’ve been using this for a good few months now and the palette is showing virtually no signs of wear, so I won’t be needing to buy another anytime soon. Plus, I rarely find a palette in which I like all of the shades and use them regularly, but, this is the first one which breaks the mold! I think this is because most of the shades are fairly similar, therefore if you mostly wear pink and peachy shades – this is the palette for you. However, fear not! Makeup Revolution have a wide variety of products available, with at least six other palettes on offer, I love that they cater for everyone’s preferences! Who doesn’t love a variety?!

For fellow makeup lovers like myself who like to glow and sparkle, not only is this product a blusher, but the four shimmer shades are basically alternatives to highlighter! Therefore, I usually use a matte shade first, preferably the third pink on the bottom line and after applying I go to the top line and add a shimmer overlay – most often the second highlighter. I love how well the colours blend together, they create such a wonderful glow, so much so that a little goes a long way and if you’re looking for the less is more approach, one swipe will definitely be enough.

I’m so happy this palette was  my first introduction to highlighter as I had four beautiful shades to mix and match with and also four matte blushes all for such an amazing price! The only negative I can really think of and if I’m honest – it’s not really a negative, is that this brand is exclusive to Superdrug, so if you  don’t have one near you then that could be a problem. Also, there is no mirror in the palette, but that’s not really an issue and can’t really be expected for the price. However, thanks to the modern world of technology, you can easily order online!


I’m wearing the third Blusher on the lower section and the first three of the Blush Highlighters on my face. The yellow shade I applied in the corners of my eyes, my cupids bow and below my eyebrow bone and the first two pink shades I applied on my cheeks.

The packaging is simple but very classy and as much as I love pretty packaging, I’d much rather have a quality product any day. Ultimately, they let the makeup do the talking! I can definitely say that I will hope to purchase more Makeup Revolution products in the future and next on my list is definitely their Blush Queen palette, which looks even more vibrant and pink than Blush Goddess!

PS… Primark Mini Makeup Haul.

I’ll be honest, if someone had told me to go and check out Primark’s own Makeup Range; PS…, I probably would have said no and continued to only venture in every now and then in hopes of finding Marilyn things. However, my favourite Beauty Blogger, Em aka mypaleskinblog did a huge Primark beauty haul on her Youtube Channel which enlightened me to not always be such a makeup snob!

To be fair to myself, which I rarely am – (but that’s another story), I do buy a wide variety of both higher and lower end beauty products, it’s just that I’d never considered Primark for makeup. The irony is, occasionally a cheaper Brand ends up making a longer lasting, better quality product compared to a Luxury Company! Therefore it goes to show that although you may get a more aesthetically pleasing purchase, it doesn’t always mean it’s better – which is basically the moral of this post.

During my haul I picked up a red lip liner, two beauty blenders and an eye shadow palette, with each item being the maximum price of.. £2.50! I would have also purchased a lipstick of some sort, however they didn’t really have any red shades which I was hoping for. Although, I’ve just been browsing on their website and they have some lovely products which means I will definitely be popping in there again at some point.

I must say, I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome of each purchase! At such cheap prices I wasn’t expecting anything astounding, but each item applied wonderfully and I actually continue to use the products weekly. Plus, even with all of the items being so cheap, they still looked very pleasing to the eye! The packaging is bold and very classic. Ultimately, I care more about the products quality however, the little touches do often make the beauty buy and for their price they definitely don’t disappoint!

Firstly, the lip liner sharpens well and feels smooth and creamy when I apply it to my lips, not chalky or harsh at all! It’s also long lasting and to be honest, I don’t really notice any difference when I compare it to my other liners! The red cap matches the shade of the liner, which contrasts beautifully with the black pencil and gold writing. Plus, it’s pretty convenient as it makes it a lot easier finding the shade you like.

Secondly, the beauty blenders come in two different shapes, one oval and one curved with the top and bottom being two different sizes. Better yet, they’re both pink! One being baby pink and the other being hot pink and yes, as you can probably tell by my excitement – I’m most definitely a girlie girl. Comparing it with my Real Techniques sponge, I can notice a slight difference with the texture – the Primark beauty blenders are not as smoothe, but for the price you can’t really complain!

Last but not least, the eye shadow palette contains beautiful nude colours, with warm and cool earthy tones that have subtle glittery pigments. The shades are very bendable and understated , so if you love a bold dramatic shadow then this probably isn’t for you. However, if you like your winged eyeliner to be the stand out factor in your makeup, then this is definitely a must have.

The only overall downside I can think of when reviewing these items is ironically – the price! Don’t get me wrong, we all love a good bargain however, because everything is so cheap, if you’re not careful you could end up spending a lot more than you would with a higher end Brand.

Also, I’m not saying every single beauty product from Primark is wonderful as that’s ultimately unlikely, like with 99% of Makeup Brands – not everything can be perfect. But, from my mini haul I can definitely say that I use all of my items regularly and all have turned out to be quality items which I recommend.

Have you bought any good quality great priced makeup? Which are your go to Bargain Brands?
