Makeup Revolution: Ultra Blush Palette – All About Cream

I received this cream blush palette from Makeup Revolution for free as part of one of their special deals where you spend a certain amount and receive some bonus products.  I am not really a cream face product girl but I was excited to give these a try.

Makeup Revolution: Ultra Professional Blush Palette – all about cream.

The packing of this palette is MUR’s standard black shiny plastic with a huge mirror.  The pans are round and easy to access with a blush brush without mixing the colours unintentionally, which I enjoy, particularly with creams.

Top row swatches.

 

The top row of this palette offers a red rose, bright pink, peach and rose pink.  The texture of these blushes is creamy to the touch and almost a little greasy to feel.  These swatches involved swirling my finger twice around the pan and then swatching once on my arm – they are pigmented, that is for sure!

Bottom row swatches

The bottom row offers a dark nude, more pinks and a coral blush.  As you can see from the swatches there are a few similar colours in the palette which would be a criticism in my opinion.

I apply these cream blushes with a small stipple brush and I find, although they apply very boldly initially, they do blend out well.  I was worried from the greasy feel that these blushes would break down the foundation and/or make my skin look more greasy but I have not found that to be the case which has been a pleasant surprise.  I would say that cream face products do give you more glow but it wasn’t a greasy look by any means.  These do last quite well on the skin but they aren’t the longest lasting blushes in my collection.  I work in schools and find that these do last a work day for me so that is great.

Overall, I have been pleasantly surprised by the formula of these blushes but I wish that there was more diversity in the colours offered in this palette.  If you enjoy a cream blush or are interested in experimenting with them for the first time, I would definitely say that this palette is worth a try 🙂

Have a fantastic day!

Makeup Revolution Ultra Professional Blush Palettes

I was never really about blush so my recent blush addiction has come as a bit of a shock to me.  I have YouTube tutorials to thank for this blush renaissance because now that I have a better idea about how to apply these pretty powders suddenly I am all about that in my life.  I actually put off buying these blush palettes from Makeup Revolution because I felt like I already had enough blush to last a lifetime (which is probably an accurate assumption) but finally I caved because these just looked so convenient and so pretty and I told myself they would be really practical for travel and, well, here we are.  I purchased two of the palettes from the range which includes four different colour combinations.  The two palettes that I chose are ‘Sugar and Spice’ and then ‘Hot Spice.’

The Sugar and Spice palette is a mix of six matte colours and two baked, shimmer colours in pink and neutral colour tones.

The Hot Spice palette is a combination of warm, peachy and coral tones including four mattes, two mattes with tiny glitter particles and two baked, shimmer shades.  From the two blushes that contain glitter particles, I have not found that the glitter transfers to the face particularly which is good as I am not really about glittery blush. Overall, these blushes are nicely pigmented, a little bit powdery and the baked, shimmer shades feel quite dry to the touch but I have found them to blend well and once on the cheeks they look lovely.  I think the range of colours in these two palettes is really great and with both these in your life you wouldn’t need any other blush! I like these palettes.  They retail for 6 pounds which is about AU$12 making each blush worth about AU$1.50 – a bargain for good quality, cruelty-free blush!  If you want to try these for yourself you can find them here: Ultra Blush Palettes

Have a wonderful day!
