Makeup Revolution Ultra Contour Palette

Hi Guys,

Makeup Revolution have recently launched a  budget friendly palette to solve your contouring and strobing needs! Even though Strobing is the new kid on the block, Contouring isn't going anywhere any time soon and this palette is very handy to have to give both a go!
It contains 8 different pans of product, ranging from 3 matte contour shades and 3 lighter highlighter shades. As well as also containing two baked shimmer highlighters that really pack a glow. 
The three contour shades in the palette have mainly red undertones to them, except from the middle shade which has a grey tone. Grey is perfect on paler skin tones as its not muddy and creates a natural  shadow. Red tones mimic the natural shades from a sun tan. You can mix and match the three shades, mixing them together to get the most natural contour shade. All three shades are also a dream to blend with as they have just the right amount of pigment to build them up for a stronger contour, but can also blend easily to create a more subtle look.
Two of the highlight shades are matte, which include a pink tone and yellow. The third lighter shade has more of a satin finish to it and is more peachy in tone. The pink toned powder is perfect to highlight on fairer skin tones with a cool undertone. Yellow tones suit more of a medium skin tone, especially with a warmer undertone to the skin. Both are also great shades to set the under eye area with a light hand, as they'll brighten the area.

The peach satin shade is a pretty subtle highlight shade, which I think would look beautiful on the brow bone, cupids bow and down the nose. It could also be used on the tops of the cheek bones as a shimmer highlight when contouring.
Finally the two baked highlight shades are almost a creamy consistency, as are all the shades in this palette. Both have more of a sheen than a shimmer to them, its not a chunky consistency too, including no chunky glitter. The peach toned one is my personal favourite as its a little warmer on the skin and not as stark as the white. I think the white would make a nice inner corner highlight and brow bone highlight for a more dramatic look. Both shades will definitely give a glow though, fantastic for the new Strobing trend.
(Swatches: Left to Right - Top Row and then the Bottom Row)
If you were to leave the last two baked highlight shades out of the palette, this could maybe be mistaken for the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Palette. But this one is a fraction of the price and comes with two more highlight shades!

You can find the Palette at Makeup Revolution for £8

  4. How pretty is this! I keep meaning to get a contour palette but I always worry it's a lot of wasted money if I don't use any of the darker shades as I'm so pale but these all swatch in a really wearable way, and I suppose £8 isn't the end of the world - maybe I'll have to give it a go.
