In the same Makeup Revolution haul where I purchased the Ultra Professional Blush & Highlight Expert set (click the link to see my review and swatches), I also picked up this super cute “‘Heroine’ – Be Revolutionary bag set”. Again, at the time, this kit was part of the Black Friday sales and was 1/3 off, plus I had a 20% coupon so I paid GBP2.67 for this kit which is about AU$6! At the time of writing this blog, this set appears to be sold out online, but if you are lucky enough to have access to a Superdrug you may still be able to find this kit in store. I believe it retails for GBP5.
So, onto the review.
Firstly, I adore the little makeup bag. It is the perfect size to fit in your purse with a few essentials for touch-ups. I love rose gold and the simple square design of this bag. It is simple but classy.
The lipgloss is a pale nude colour which gives nice shine without much pigmentation. It is the sort of gloss colour that will work paired over any lipstick, although I am yet to try it that way. In the heat of our summer I am wearing minimal makeup and have enjoyed this on its own for a bit of shine. It isn’t sticky, which I love, and although it looks like there may be tiny iridescent shimmers in this gloss, they don’t show up on the lips in a glittery way. Like all glosses you need to reapply this frequently but I am enjoying it so far.
The last item in the kit is this totally adorable mini palette. I am all about tiny things. Give me a ‘miniature’ anything and I am dying with the cuteness. Needless to say I love this. This palette contains seven shades including two mattes and five shimmer shades. The mattes have not swatched well here (swatch 1 and 3) but they are totally workable on the eye. I love that this little palette contains these two workhorse matte colours: a highlight shade perfect for the brow bone, and a good transition shade. This palette is super small, super light and contains everything I would need when travelling. This is going straight into my travel makeup kit for sure.
When this arrived in the post I could immediately see the similarity between the mini palette shades and the Iconic 3 palette from Makeup Revolution’s permanent collection, which itself is a dupe of the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. I haven’t swatched these out to do an exact comparison, but even just eyeballing them you can see that the ‘Heroine’ mini palette has a big sister 🙂
I really like this set. So much so that I purchased another one for my cousin as a gift.
