Golden Sugar Blush Palette | Makeup Revolution

You know my love for multi-use products. If my daily routine can be reduced by a couple of minutes I am one happy lady! So as soon as I saw the Makeup Revolution Golden Sugar Blush Palette, I knew I had to have it. With 8 delightful pans of merged blush, baked bronzers, a classic bronzer and baked highlighters this is a real beauty. 

First off let's talk about quality because as a brand Makeup Revolution knocks it out of the park every time. Each shade is highly pigmented with a great depth of colour. Soft and light, they blend into the skin beautifully with both matte and dewy bases.

As a whole these wear pretty well on my skin, they don't go patchy or sink into my pores. My skin does tend to get a bit oily throughout the day, so I do have to reapply them towards the evening if I plan on going out after work. But that doesn't impact my opinion of them at all.

The packaging is another win. Sleek and functional, with a glossy black finish, this has a large mirror, feels very sturdy in your hand and has a good secure closure. It's super thin which makes it perfect for travelling. And overall it looks a lot more expensive than it actually is.

Unfortunately, the shades themselves aren't named or numbered in any way, so I've split the swatches into two, one photo for each side of the palette.

On the left, you will see the lighter shades. The first is a super shimmery pink blush, more of a highlighter/blush combo. My go-to on lazy mornings when I need to perk myself up.

Then we have a pale pink highlighter, alone it sits beautifully along the tops of the cheekbones. But when put on top of a matte pink blush, this really makes your cheeks pop!

Next is a warm, more natural highlighter. Great for every day.

And finally a shimmery pearl with gold undertones, this is perfect as an inner corner highlight and equally beautifully along the brow bone.

And on the right, you will see the darker shades. The first is a light brown matte bronzer, it's warm with a very faint shimmer which pairs beautifully with my pale skin tone.

Then we have a shimmery warm gold shade. Light enough to use as a highlight, unfortunately, It's very yellow against my skin but this is great to use as an eyeshadow.

Next is a warm, rich copper. Very bold to use as a blusher, you must use a light hand. But like the shade prior, it's very wearable as an eyeshadow.

And finally, a cool toned, pale pink shimmery blush. My favourite and most used by far!

In terms of a full face, one evening I used 5 different shades and managed to get ready in under 15 minutes. It went a little something like this, matte bronzer, cool toned pink blush with natural warm highlight, copper all over the lid with the golden/pearl on the brow bone and inner corners.

Piece of cake!

Speaking of cake, the icing has to be its cruelty-free and vegan-friendly status! After asking my usual list of questions this is the reply I received from the owners of Makeup Revolution, TAM Beauty.
Thank you for contacting us at TAM Beauty. We can confirm that we do not test our products nor ingredients on animals and neither do any third parties (and we are not owned by a parent company). 
After a couple more questions I found that they do not and will not be selling their products in China and that a lot of their products are actually vegan. But as always, read the ingredients before purchasing.

So after all that, where can you purchase this blushing wonder?

The Makeup Revolution Blush Palette Golden Sugar - £6.00 is available in most Superdrug stores, Superdrug.com and TAMBeauty.com. For those of you across the pond, Makeup Revolution is also available at Ulta.com.

Phew, so that was a long one. I just wanted to finish things off by saying, WOW It's been a long ol' while since I've written anything. What do you guys think of the new look? Creatively I have a bit more direction, hence all this new shebang. I felt like for a long time I was uninspired and lost, I didn't feel like I had a voice. But now I have things that I want to share and I hope that you all enjoy it.

Gem. x
