WHAT YOU WAITING FOR... trying MAKEUP REVOLUTION?


Little mirror on the wall,
who's the worst at making puns
of them all?

(I know, it's me.)

Hello everyone!

Who hasn't heard of Makeup Revolution at this time of the year? They're literally everywhere. They've taken the beauty world by storm and they're getting bigger and bigger to the point that they're growing internationally too! 

Why have they become an important brand among bloggers? They offer high end quality products at drugstore prices. Is that possible? Apparently YES! And they're very well known for their Urban Decay's Naked palettes dupes like Iconic 1, 2, 3. Also, they're always on all the social networks and willing to talk to you and reply asap! I think that's so great because they help bloggers by retweeting their posts! Brownie points for Make up revolution!

Truth is, I've been so close to buying one of their products (Iconic 3, to be exact) but their store isn't international YET and they sell them through a Spanish website I'm not sure if it's reliable or not so I told myself I'd rather wait a little bit. I believe everything happens for a reason because one day I received a message from the Make Up Revolution team telling me they wanted me to try one of their new products. I literally fangirled.



It came perfectly on time. A day after I finished my exams and also a day before a great End of University party that I'm going to attend with my lifelong best friends! It came perfectly packaged and when I saw it I was so happy because from their new range it's one of my favourites along with GIRLS ON FILM! But this one is pure beauty...

The WHAT YOU WAITING FOR palette* is a majestuous 18 eyeshadow palette divided in 12 shimmery and 6 matte colour. What else could you ask for, right? And you'd expect it to be extremely expensive but it is just 6GBP!  It may remind you of Gwen Stefani - and it is actually a Gwen Stefani inspired palette! (I hope you're singing the song like me, I can't get it out of my head ever since the moment I received this palette!)

The packaging is lovely and looks so professional and reminds me of a high end product. It sort of reminds me of the Naked 3 palette because of the pink shimmery colours.


Although I think I picked the WORST day for swatches (I've just come from the beach and I had a shower and I'm half tan/half lobster) I hope you see how they are so well pigmented! This was just one swipe I did with my finger and I think they already look pretty good!

Overall I think this palette is wonderful. The colours are so easy to use, both for nowadays and for a party and I plan to write a post on the make up look I will use with this palette for tomorrow's party! Let me know if you'd like to read about it!

Do you own any Makeup Revolution item?

  12. Ohhh, I am so in love with Makeup Revolution right now, too! I don't get the brand here in California, but a UK blogger sent a few things from this brand to me, and I was blown away by the quality.

    Cheers!
