Makeup Revolution London Ultra Blush Limited Edition Sugar and Spice Palette | Review & MAC Giveaway Winner

Apologies for my awful photo quality at the moment, it seems to be consistent how bad they've been recently but my camera broke and I'm in need of a new one seen as though my iPhone camera doesn't do any of my posts justice. That aside, this is the next post in my little Makeup Revolution London series as they sent me five different products to play around with. This was the second palette I received from Makeup Revolution London and I have to say, again they didn't fail to impress me with the sleek and classy packaging. Something I really love about their palettes is that the mirrors are huge as the palette is bigger than your average Sleek or MUA palettes, and unlike the Sleek i-Divine eyeshadow palettes the mirror in this one does not need to be propped up with something to stay up when you're using it. As I said though, the palettes are quite large and wouldn't be ideal to just throw in your handbag or to go travelling with, but for £6.00 that's not a big issue.

The palette comes with eight blushers, six of which are matte and two which are shimmers. I'm not a big blusher girl and don't have many in my collection so this is a perfect starter kit for me or anyone similar who doesn't often wear it a lot. There are two of the Ultra Blush palettes by Makeup Revolution and I was sent the one in 'Sugar and Spice' which is the pink toned one. The colours can look rather daunting when you first look at them but they really are pretty when applied to the face. I would definitely say that the brighter pinker shades would suit more pale skin whereas the beige pink/nude shades would compliment darker skin really nicely. I've been using the shimmer shade in the top right corner recently as a highlight using my Real Techniques Blush Brush and I absolutely love it, I think it looks so pretty for summer and it goes lovely over the top of bronzed cheeks. 

These palettes are limited edition and only £6.00 so you should definitely go grab one soon, especially if you are wanting to start buying blushers more but don't want to splash out on £20.00 per pan at MAC. These palettes would also be perfect to create a free lance kit if you are an aspiring makeup artist as there are eight blushers in each palette and there is a shade for everyone in there.

Just another thing before I end this post, my MAC Lipstick giveaway has now ended and I have announced the winner on my Twitter and emailed her also. Thank you to everyone who entered and I will definitely be doing more in the future after such a high response rate!
