Prepare yo’selves, I’m going to give you some serious palette lust with this one; so rarely do I see something and have to have it immediately, but the moment I laid eyes on the collaborative product from Jane Cunningham (British Beauty Blogger) and Makeup Revolution I knew I had to have it as soon as was humanly possible, which thankfully is slightly earlier than anticipated as the original launch date was the 17th, but, presumably, all the excitement surrounding the palette has forced MUR to release it sooner, as it’s out now.
The palette is called Fortune Favours the Brave and it’s a stunning, STUNNING collection of everything from easy, suits-all nudes, to smoky plums right through to wearable takes on colours such as navy and moss green. As soon as I heard of the palette, I knew there’d be at least one good navy as I remember Jane speaking about her love for a navy eye in a post quite some time ago, so I’m glad to see there are a couple of takes on this particular colour. Think of the best bits from recent Bobbi Brown and Urban Decay palettes alongside, of course, some of the wonderful shades MUR themselves offer, and you have yourself the Fortune Favours the Brave palette. However, unlike the aforementioned brands, this one is less than a tenner; that’s 30 beautiful shades for £9.99. I’ve ordered mine (along with a couple of other MUR bits – expect a haul post soon) and I recommend you do the same, before stock vanishes. You can currently find it here – link – and you can also see Jane’s post on the palette along with swatches (and the images in this post in their original position) here. I really hope this is the start of things to come from Jane and MUR as how amazing would a line of lipsticks or a face palette be? Make it happen, people!
