If you’re someone who is all about that base (’bout that base…is it in your head now?) then Makeup Revolution have released yet another product that’ll be right up your street. The Protection palettes contain a selection of seven base essentials and are available in four different colour variants depending on skin tone, so there’s Light, Light/Medium, Medium/Dark and Dark; I have the Light one.
In each palette you get three different toned concealers, one pressed powder, one blusher, one bronzer and one highlighter, so you really do have everything you need to perfect your base. The palette itself also includes a large mirror that’s really good quality – the Makeup Revolutions compact mirrors always seem to be really good!
First up I’ll talk about the concealers which were a big surprise for me as they’re so incredibly creamy and blendable. They’re not the highest coverage I’ve ever come across, but you can build them well and I’ve been using the lightest shade under my eyes and the middle shade on blemishes. The pressed powder works well to set the concealer in place and doesn’t show up any dryness.
I really like the blusher shade in the palette which is a lovely, flattering, muted pink that gives a very natural finish. It’s pretty pigmented so tread carefully with your application. The bronzer is a great contouring shade that isn’t too warm and the highlighter isn’t too sparkly, plus it sheers out nicely. All-in-all this is another phenomenal launch from Makeup Revolution, made even more incredibly by the fact that this is just a teeny tiny £6! You can find them here – link.
