After reading a lot of rave reviews from fellow bloggers, I finally caved and put a small order on the Makeup Revolution website for two of their newest products; the Ultra Contour Palette and the Ultra Base Corrector Palette which I shall be reviewing today.
For the price, I was immediately impressed with the quality and sturdiness of the palette and I like that it is so sleek and has the name of it written on both top and bottom. It also comes in a box that has all the corrector shades at the back, making the palette feel all the more expensive than it actually is.
On the inside you get a very good sized mirror on one side of the palette and on the bottom side you get 7 correctors/concealers and an illuminator, all in a cream formula. Basically you get a corrector for any skin imperfection. Here's a breakdown of the shades and what they are used for:-
Top Row (left to right)
- Salmon Pink to brighten your complexion
- Lavender to neutralise yellow tones
- Green to neutralise redness
- Light Beige to neutralise blue tones and correct
Bottom Row (left to right)
- Peach to balance out discolouration
- Pearly White to illuminate
- Yellow to cover up under eye dark circles
- Medium Beige to neutralise ashiness in darker skin tones
The ones I use most are the green and yellow and they really do an amazing job! I also like to use the medium beige as a concealer on top of them and on other areas that need it now that I am tanned. I like that you have everything you would possibly need in this palette and especially if you want to build your makeup kit, this is a great palette to start with. It is also excellent for travelling.
All correctors have a nice, creamy consistency that is very easy to blend into the skin and produce the desired effect.
I didn't have any issues or adverse reactions to any of the shades and I am really satisfied with the quality, pigmentation and staying power.
The Makeup Revolution Ultra Base Corrector Palette retails for £6/€8.19 from the Makeup Revolution website.
