Makeup Revolution Flawless Matte Palette + Blushing Hearts review

Makeup Revolution palette
Since this beauty arrived at my door over a month ago, I was determined to give it a go and test it out to write a review and discuss all the yay's and nay's. Pretty much every blogger (especially beauty-loving one) heard about Makeup Revolution palettes and have probably even tried a few. Personally, I read a bunch of reviews on Affirmation and was a click away from buying it when I saw this stunner called Flawless Matte. Even though Affirmation is beautiful, it does have too much shimmer for my liking, so matte shades sounded like something totally up my street! Whenever mister postman delivered this happy mail, I couldn't wait to get my hands on this palette. Also, inside the package there was a lovely surprise. Makeup Revolution included two blushers with it! I couldn't believe it! Excitement overload. NB: this is not a sponsored post, palette was purchased by me and blushers came as a gift (thank you, Makeup Revolution). You will always get nothing less but a genuine review from me on Miel and Mint. 
Let's find out more about my Makeup Revolution Flawless Matte palette and 
I Heart Makeup Blushing Hearts blushers.


Makeup Revolution palette
This lovely eyeshadow palette comes in a sleekly-designed packaging with a big mirror (huge bonus) but without a brush. If you own a great eyeshadow brush (or a few of them), you are golden. There are 32 shades you can play with and mix and match to your liking. All of them are perfectly matte which is the main reason why I got this palette in the first place. Plus, look at those shades.
Makeup Revolution Flawless Matte palette
The colours go as follows (I removed the transparent cover and labeled them myself):
  • first two columns (sandy soft shades & perfect highlighters, can't rave enough about how much I love these!): Flaw, Cool, Antique, Soft, Nutmeg, Sand, Nut, Oak
  • next three columns (soft pink'y, dark champagne & peachy colours): Pearl, Fawn, Taupe, Bark, Matte, Muse, Rosewood, Warm, Shell, Warm, Rust, Burnt
  • next two rows (forest-inspired shades, darker colours perfect for creating either still quite soft or more dramatic look): Chrome, Mud, Bear, Wood, Cork, Leather, Olden, Earth
  • final column (4 different shades but all 4 are the definition of an absolute perfection): Stone, Smoke, Charcoal, Carbon 
I tried to do a swatch on my arm but laughed at my own attempts as my skin is still quite dark (tan from Gran Canaria) and because these gorgeous shades are all matte, they either blended in with my skin (ergo, not visible haha) or looked nothing like they are supposed to :) So I will attach a little swatch from the website and label all the colours for your convenience. They look stunning on the eye lids - and that's the main thing!
Makeup Revolution Flawless Matte palette swatches
The shades I have used A LOT already are: Cool, Sand, Soft, Matte, Taupe and Rosewood. Flaw and Nutmeg are perfect for highlighting. The most gorgeous dark shades for me are: Stone, Mud, Charcoal and Carbon. Smoky eye look turns out absolutely stunning using those.

The verdict:
  • you get a fabulous 32 shades palette as a great bargain! (only £8)
  • gorgeous colour selection and amazing quality
  • big mirror but no brush (no biggie for me)
  • it is perfect for beginners as well as makeup gurus 
  • shades would suit any age
  • super easily blendable
  • long-lasting (over 8 hrs and it's still in place)
Highly highly (I had to say it twice!) recommend it.

Now onto the stunning blushers that arrived with the palette - what a fantastic surprise! Plus, they are shaped as hearts. You got me at hello with these, Makeup Revolution :)
Makeup Revolution Flawless Matte palette and Bushing Hearts blushers
I love that they are different! Both have the retail price of £4.99.
The shimmer in it is stunning and colour turn out exactly what they should be like: fresh, rosy and super pretty. The 1st strip is very pigmented but easily blendable and is perfect for adding a tiny bit of rosy touch to the apples of your cheeks. The 2nd strip is this gorgeous Dark Taupe/Peachy Pink shade and it is stunning on the cheek bone. The 3rd strip is a perfect highlighter for the top of the cheek below the eye and other areas you love highlighting. 
I heart Makeup Blushing Hearts - Iced Hearts (the baked champagne/sand'y one)
I don't even know how to start telling you about this blusher because it is sheer perfection. Excuse my usage of all these "words of praise" but it is my genuine opinion. I use this one Every.Single.Day and couldn't be happier with it! The 1st strip is my no.1 and oh-so-loved & used shade. It works perfectly for my skin tone as it's more sandy and soft. The 2nd strip is dull pink which is amazing because it's subtle and you won't end up applying too much. The 3rd strip is a baked champagne'y shade and it does a flawless job as a highlighter. 
These hearts are hands down one of the very best drugstore highlighters I've ever tried!

Have you tried this palette or blushers from Makeup Revolution? What do you think about them?
I hope you enjoyed this review. I couldn't rave enough about how amazing these three products are and I am glad there were no drawbacks (at least not for me).

  24. Hi hon! Wish your hubby a great birthday!
    You're not helping me trying to stay away the Makeup Revolution site, it's been so difficult lately (I ended up with a shopping list of almost 150 euros, so I really have to control myself).
    I want that palette so much, it reminds me to the Morphe palettes that are so popular in the States, but even more affordable!
    Thanks for the amazing review, I hope I don't end up with the entire site because of your recommendation hahaha.

  51. I've been eyeing on A LOT of Make Up Revolution products now and it seems like every single palette they've released is on my wishlist but still I can't decide which one to get first! I'd love to get this palette first but it has some similar shades and I'm afraid I don't get to use this as much as I wanted to since I don't really eyeshadow on daily basis.. I really want to try the blushes too, they all look so pretty!
