Review: Makeup Revolution Eye Shadow and Strobing Palette

Makeup revolution just became available at my local Ulta store and I couldn’t be more thrilled! I noticed the new section as I walked in and was certainly intrigued. If you have never heard of Makeup Revolution they are a company from London that launched in 2014. The prices are amazing (highlighter for $5.95? Yes Please!) and they are cruelty-free!


Makeup Revolution has a nice selection of lip colors, highlighters, and blushes but what really caught my eye were all of the eyeshadow palettes. The palettes are inexpensive running anywhere from $7-$15. To top it off Ulta was having a buy two get one free sale. I had just hit the beauty junkies jackpot!

Ultra eye Contour Light and Shade

This palette is perfect for everyday use yet is pigmented enough to create a “going out” look. All 12 of the colors are matte and will flatter every skin tone.
This is a great palette because it blends easily and if I decide to go out on the town I can use some of the darker colors to create a smokey look. It is also a nice palette to use for when you want to wear a bold lip but you want to balance it out with a neutral eye.

Ultra eyeshadows in Flawless 2

The Flawless 2 palette comes with 32 matte and shimmer shadows. This is a fun palette because you have the option of keeping it natural or experimenting with different blue or red based colors.
Here I am wearing a blend of these four rusty colors – Sound, Expert, Impeccable, and Official. I love that I didn’t have to spend very much money on unique eyeshadow colors.


The shadows in this set are very blendable and highly pigmented. What you see is what you get! My only complaint is that they do release a bit of powder when you stroke the brush on the palette, however, it’s not a huge problem just blow off the excess powder.

Ultra Strobe Balm Palette

The Makeup Revolution Ultra Strobe Balm Palette is the product that initially caught my eye when I noticed the Makeup Revolution section at Ulta. This palette comes with 8 iridescent highlighting balms. They look super intense in the palette but when you apply them they end up looking gorgeously glowy!
Here I am wearing the balm on my upper cheekbones, inner corner of my eyes, cupid’s bow and middle of my lips.
I love the variety of the balms and how they make you look dewy without feeling heavy or caked on! The wear is pretty good too I didn’t need to touch up at all.
Overall I am very impressed with the quality and pigment of Makeup Revolution products. I think that their shadows and highlighters rival the higher end products. If I would have come across their selection of highlighter and strobing products I may have not even purchased my Tarte Pro Highlight/Contour palette! (Although I still really love that palette).
