Right before Black Friday, Ulta had a sale going. So, you know, I went and treated myself. A few days ago, I received my package in the mail. I had heard a lot about Makeup Revolution, so I decided that I should give them a try. I knew that they are inexpensive, but I was afraid of the color payout and just ending up having another product on my hands that I regretted purchasing.
I bought Makeup Revolution’s Affirmation palette and here’s what I discovered. . .
The Affirmation is everything that I want in a palette!
First of all, I’m just going to talk about the physical part of the palette itself. It has a really nice weight to it; it’s not too heavy, but it most definitely feels nice and sturdy in my hand. The mirror is AMAZING! It’s super big and the top part of the case stands on it’s own. I don’t have to hold it when I’m looking into it.
Now, time for the good part.
This is what the entire palette looks like. I love how there is a mixture of light shades, medium-tone shades, and a sprinkle of dark shades. This palette is a mix of warm and cool tones; the darker shades are mostly cool, but the majority of the lighter shades are warmer.
There is also a mixture of shimmer and matte shades. In the top right corner, there is a burnt orange color that I’ve fallen in love with.
Here are a few swatches of the lighter shimmers. There is really good color payoff and the shades are super creamy!
This is a picture of a few swatches from my favorite colors of the palette. I’m so, totally in love with this palette. Is it going to be on my November’s Favorites? You betcha.
