Makeup Revolution has taken the beauty blogosphere by storm! Do I need to say more? If you’ve been blogging for a while and have never come across Makeup Revolution, then you’re missing out. They only launched in March 2014 and has grown at the speed of light in the past few four months. With over 300 products on the menu starting from £1 everyone wants to be a part of this revolution!

Makeup Revolution Salvation Palette Run Boy Run* (£6)

This 18 shade palette is a part of their newly launched Salvation collection consisting of: Run Boy Run, What You Waiting For?, Girls on Film, Dia de los Muertos and Welcome to the Pleasuredome. Run Boy Run is one of the bestsellers on Makeup Revolution’s website, possibly due to it’s natural shades with a touch of rose gold. It comes in 12 shimmer shades and 6 matte shades, it’s pretty obvious which is which by simply looking at the package design.

Overall, the shades in this palette looks very mild and down to earth with a few daring shades like Break Out from Society (the reddish one in the middle) and Head Start (black one bottom right). Haha, I got a bit lazy and didn’t tag the name of each shade, but if you really want to know what they’re called then just give it a search.

The shades in this Run Boy Run Salvation palette are strongly pigments, which is exceptional for a palette that only costs £6 (or 33p per shade). However, the 6 matte shades didn’t show up as well because they looked very light against my skin colour. I’ve been testing this out in the summer and found that the lasting power isn’t as good as it’s high end competitors like Urban Decay. Even with a primer, the shadows started smudging after five hours in the heat. This is a good lasting time nonetheless when taking into account its price and the fact that it’s 30 degrees outside.

    They're really nice shades in the palette and that is a reasonable price too. I like the colours you've used in your photo, they look pretty. x

    I have a few MUR products and their matte shades are never that good which is such a shame as the shimmers are fab! xxx Thou Shalt Not Covet
