Welcome to day one of the ‘MR Salvation Series – 7 palettes in 7 days.’ All of these Salvation Palettes from Makeup Revolution are EXCELLENT quality. The first two rows of 12 rectangular shades in each palette are all shimmers and the 6 circular shades are all mattes. To generalise, the shades are universally soft and pigmented. The shimmer shades tend to be more buttery while the matte shades can be a bit more chalky, but I find that they all blend really nicely and last all day without creasing with a primer. I find these Salvation palettes to be super practical because they offer such a nice balance of matte and shimmer shades… which may help to explain why I have ended up with 7 of these palettes! (eek – don’t judge!) Anyway – enough talk. Lets get into reviewing the Salvation palette of the day!
DAY 1: Welcome to the Pleasuredome
I am going to kick off this series with ‘Welcome to the Pleasuredome.’ This palette offers an interesting mix of neutrals with some really pretty pops of colour.
For the purpose of this post I am going to divide ‘Welcome to the Pleasuredome’ in half and address the 9 neutral colours first.
The neutral colours in this palette are really pretty and so wearable. My pick of these colours is called ‘Xanadu.’ It is such a stunning Champagne colour (swatch 2). Unfortunately the first matte shade, called ‘What a Push Over’ hasn’t swatched well in the photo but that is mainly because it is such a close match to my skin colour.
The 9 brighter shades in this palette are really lovely. ‘Using my Power’ (swatch 1) is stunning, as is the next colour along (I have not idea how to described that colour… apparently I have no vocabulary for colours!) called ‘You Really Can’t Afford Me.’ I also adore the stunning teal colour called ‘Sell it by the Hour’ (swatch 4). It is pulling a bit more light blue in the photos but it really does have a green undertone which makes it so unique. I love it along the lower lash line; it really makes my blue eyes pop!
So, that is ‘Welcome to the Pleasuredome’ 🙂 You can find this palette at Makeup Revolution
See you tomorrow for Day 2 of the ‘MR Salvation Series – 7 palettes in 7 days.’
