Revolution Make Up Haul

Tuesday, 13 May 2014

Hello pretty Honeybee's!

I recently made an Order with new Cosmetics company 'Revolution Make Up London' and I decided to make a Video of the unwrapping & first impressions (you can see it at the end of this post!), but I also wanted to make a post about my order as I was so impressed with the products and I want you to see them in all their glory!

Revolution Make up is a brand that launched in March and is currently available in the UK on their official website (here) and the Superdrug website. What I really love about them is that all the products are super cheap with prices starting as low a £1!
I had been eyeing up a few of the products on the website for a while, so when Revolution announced that each order over £15 would receive 5 free gifts, I took my chance and placed my order!
My order arrived in 3 days and postage was only £2.95, I was also pleased to receive regular updates from Revolution and Royal mail to let me know what stage my order was at!


Lets start with some eye shadows!
I have been a lover of matte eye shadows for a long time but I always find it hard to get one with a good colour pay off - just because an eye shadow is matte, doesn't mean it has to be dull!
So, when I was browsing the Revolution website I spotted a matte eye shadow collection, including 6 beautiful shades at just £1 each! I was so pleased and excited to try them out!
Revolution are also running an offer where you can buy the entire set for £5 instead of £6 - so I took full advantage!

The casing of the eye shadows are sleek and light! The window on the front is protective and printed with the Revolution logo in luxurious golden lettering.
The eye shadows fasten with a cute little black popper - so you can be sure they wont come open and shatter in your make up bag.


Here are some swatches of the 6 shades in the matte collection!

'MMM' - A beautiful chocolate shade, perfect for the outer 'V' Corner of the eye and smoking out a matte look.
'Touch Me' - A perfect cream shade, a great base for any eye shadow look.
'Hung Up' - A gorgeous Taupe shade which is lovely for all over coverage or for the crease of the eyelid.
'Delicious' - This Dark brown/khaki shade is gorgeous and brilliant for lining the lash line as an alternative to eye liner.
'Envy' - My favourite of the collection, a unique peacock blue which will look amazing smoked out with some black shadow.
'Mocha Love' - A pretty pinky brown which is lovely for everyday make-up looks.

I LOVE these eye shadows, everything about them is right - the packaging, the colour range, the colour pay off and, of course, the price!


I also picked up the 'Just Me in the Promised Land' collection - I was hypnotised by the glimmer and shimmer of each of the shades in the collection and just couldn't wait to get my hands on them.
The same offer applies to this collection, so you can get them all for a perfect price!

Above is a closer look at all the shades in the collection - how beautiful are they?!

'Promised land' - My favourite of this collection, this rose gold shade is girly and so on trend for spring/summer.
'Illuminate' - I couldn't ask for a better highlighter at this price, perfect on the brow bone and inner corner of the eye.
'Just Me' - This is a very deep red/brown shade, its very beautiful and will be great as an alternative to flat brown
'Cappuccino' - A lovely, everyday, easy-to-wear shade this will look great covering the lid with some 'Illuminate' in the corner of the eye.
'So good to me' - This gorgeous, smooth gold is beautiful for summer eye looks!
'Mountains of Gold' - A fabulous Golden shade that will look perfect with some bright blue liner!

This collection is like nothing I've seen before - I just cant believe that they cost so little! The colour pay off is incredible and there are so many looks just waiting to be created with this collection!


I also picked up this single eye shadow as I had to total my order up to £15 and I'm so glad I chose it now! 
This is 'Insomnia', a beautiful deep pearl purple which will look fantastic for a smoked out evening look, blended in with some blacks, silvers, browns or even greens (if you're feeling adventurous!)
This shadow was also just £1!

The Vamp lip collection is something I've had my eye on for a while, The colours are mysterious, deep and interesting, they are just £1 each and they have beautiful sleek black packaging. 
I was very excited to discover I could buy the whole collection for £2 instead of £3, so I did just that.
I have found that the lids on the lipsticks are a little loose and don't stay on too well, but if you store them properly, the will be fine.
Similarly to the MUA (MakeUpAcademy) lipsticks, there is a sample pot at the top of the lid - however you cannot remove it on these lipsticks, but I really like them anyway, they are a great addition as it means you don't need to take all the lids off of the lipsticks to find the colour you want!

As you can see, I accidentally dropped one of the lipsticks and stubbed the end to it is a little flat but it works just as well! Nonetheless, the colours are great and so different than anything I've owned before!

Vamp Collection

Here are a look at the shades when on the skin.
'Black heart' - This deep purple (almost black) colour is surprisingly lovable and gorgeous! Even though my skin is light it compliments it just fine and is an exciting alternative to red lipstick!
'Rebel with a cause' - This plum red shade is perfect for the autumn months, it is a little darker than the summertime reds and looks so glossy and pretty.
'100% Vamp' - This is the shade I was most excited to try, and although I love the colour, the application is a little patchy. But, if you apply with a brush it seems to apply a little more consistently.

Because i had spent £15, i also qulaifies for 5 free gifts with my order, have a little peek at them below!


I got these cute nail polishes, which was a great surprise! The bottles are slender and easy to grip but I wish the Revolution Logo was printed directly onto the bottle like with the eyeshadows, rather than being a sticker.

Here is a look at the shades i was sent - I Love them both!

'Adore' - A cute girly purple which is going to be great on my tes this summer
'You need love' - A hot poppin' pink shade which is so perfect for summer its unreal!

I am thinking about doing a tie dye effect on my nails with these colours as I think they look so good together


I also received this lovely pressed powder blusher in shade 'Wow!' - its a gorgeous candy pink colour which will give the apples of my cheeks a perfect flush of colour.
The powder is soft and long lasting and the packing looks very professional and sleek!

Pigment Powder

I am so in love with this pure pigment which I was sent for free! It is in shade 'Rivalry' - an amazing green with golden hues - perfect for the forest fairy look I have been planning on trying out for a future video!
The payoff is so amazing - a tiny sprinle of the powder gives a more more than perfect dose of colour which will electrify your look and have peoples eyes on your for ages!


Lastly, I received this super cute lip gloss in shade 'Nude Shimmer' - this is a great 'topper' shade which will give my lipsticks a gorgeous golden glow.
The doe-foot applicator is soft and sweeps the product onto your lips smoothly and flawlessly!

I was suuupper happy with everything about my order from Revolution makeup and I just cant wait to try out more of their amazing products! Its so comforting to know that you don't have to break the bank to get your hands on good quality products!

  2. Nice blog. I'm waiting for my Makeup Revoution haul to arrive, now I'm tempted to order more stuff. Do you think any of the matte eyeshadows would double as a good contour for fair skin?

    1. Hi There! Thanks for reading!
      I think 'mocha love' would work great as a contour shade! Thats a brilliant idea!
