REVIEW: Revolution Blush Pallet in Sugar and Spice - Pretty in Pink









Revolution is a make-up brand that over the past year has taken the blogging world storm - every time I login into my Bloglovin or YouTube subscription box, 9 times out of 10 their will be at least one post featuring the brand; and rightly so, as not only are their products amazing, they are also soo affordable too.

I actually picked this up in Superdrug last summer for £6 when Revolution first launch (and have been meaning to do a blog post since then which just shows you how organised I am!) and it has been a constant staple in my make-up routine and is something I always drift back to.

Firstly I really love the packaging of this palette; especially the rose gold foil writing on the front of the palette (I have a *slight* obsession with rose gold!)  and it also has a large mirror inside of the palette which makes it perfect for travel!

This pallet contains 8 beautiful pink tone shades; 6 of which are matt with the other to being shimmer - which is actually what had drawn me to this pallete in the first place as I'm much more or a matt blush kinda-girl as I feel that that they are allot more versatile as I can add shimmer with a highlighter but you can't take it away.

All 8 shades in this pallet are pink or have a pink undertone, although some are less vibrant than others, they all have very good pigmentation, which I wasn't expecting as their so cheap as the whole palette is only £6 ( o they work out as 75p per blush!) and they majority of the blushes are buttery - the only 2 blushes I'm not crazy about the formulation are the 2 shimmery shades, as I find that they feel quite dry and have a very strange texture in the pan - that being said they still have very good pigmentation.

The only downside to there amazing pigmentation is that it is very easy to apply WAY too much product and as they have great staying power, they can be a little bit difficult to blend if too much product is applied. The best way I have found to apply these blushes is to use a large fluffy tapered blush - I personally use the Real Techniques Blush Brush as I feel that it the tapered shaped applies the product so it look beautifully blended.

Overall I would definitely  recommend this pallete as not only is it super cheap, it's also amazing quality for the price! The palette is also available in a number of other different shades from the Revolution website and both the Superdrug website and in stores - so I would recommend checking their other shades out too!

Do you think you'll be picking this palette up any time soon? What other Revolution or blush products would you recommend? I'd love to know in the comments below - it will be a great excuse for me to buy even more makeup that I probably (definitely!) don't need!
