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.
Really pretty shades!

Happy to see makeup revolution/a more affordable brand on here! Some of the other products you review look great but a tad pricey. I’d love to see more make up revolution product reviews and small palettes-maybe eyeshadow palette reviews. I like that you describe honestly how the concealers are, especially as someone with acne prone skin (like I have) – so many beauty bloggers seem to have already almost perfect skin and I dont feel they really need concealer for blemishes or under their eyes or can honestly say how good it is as they don’t have much to cover up!
Thanks so much for all your comments, Sophie! I know what you mean about pricing – unfortunately I do tend to lean towards the more expensive brands, but I’ve also found some great bargains lately which of course include the insanely good Makeup Revolution launches!
I couldn’t agree more with what you’ve said about the concealer reviews from bloggers with great skin; I always find it quite astounding when they review high coverage products as how could they possibly know whether it works or not?! xx
