A while ago Makeup Revolution Slovenia surprised some of Slovenian bloggers with some Makeup Revolution products. I got this contour kit, which has actually been on my wish list as a more affordable dupe for Sleek one. I got it in the Ultra Fair shade, which was exactly how I wanted it and I've been using it every single day since I got it, that's how much I like it.
In the palette is matte bronzer, shimmery highlighter and shimmery blush. The packaging is plastic and it has transparent lid. Nothing too exciting. It costs 4.95€ on Makeup Revolution Slovenia and 3.50£ on Makeup Revolution official site. You get 11 grams of product in the palette.
The bronzer is matte. It's warm toned brown and it's very pigmented. For some reason it seems to have some sort of sheen to it. No shimmer or any sort of particles like that, it just gives a little bit of sheen, so that it's not completely dusty.
Highlighter is white based champagne. In the pan it looks more pink toned than it's actually on the skin. It's a pretty neutral, very light highlighter with shimmer so small that it gives of gorgeous sheen. It's very pigmented.
Blush is orange peach shade with gold sheen. I love it. Did I say I love gold anything? Yes, it has gorgeous gold, again, very small shimmer that adds beautiful shine. I will say be careful. I find that if I use fluffy brush, I get more of that peach shade and when I use denser brush I get a lot of that gold sheen. It looks more pink in the pan, but on me it's pretty peachy. I guess it might look different on cooler skin tone. It's also very pigmented.
Here is the ingredients list.
What I like most about this product is that you can really build it up or make it very sheer. It all depends on what kind of brush you use and how much product you use on the brush.
The bronzer can in fact be used on very light skin. If you use light touch, it will be very light and give you just a little bit of color. I like to put on more and then I can get that really bronzed look. You can actually build it up to a pretty dark shade.
Highlighter can also be applied very sheer or strong. Of course I like my highlighter to be seen from space, so I put on a lot, but you can definitely go sheerer. As you can see the shimmer is really small.
I used fluffier bigger brush here, so I got a lot sheerer application and more of the actual peach shade on. I hope you can still see the golden sheen that it gives to cheeks. It's really gorgeous and very shiny, indeed.
And this is how it looks like applied all together.
I decided to compare bronzer to Catrice Sun Glow Matt Bronzing Powder in 030 Medium Bronze and E.l.f. Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder in St. Lucia. Elf is the most shimmery and the darkest. Catrice is actually completely matte and almost a bit more orange and a tiny bit darker. MR bronzer is in fact the lightest of those three and as you can see here, it just has that sheen to it, without actually having any shimmer in it.
MR highlighter almost looks the most shiny and the one with the most sheen in general. The Balm Mary Lou-Manizer is a lot more yellow based and it has that same shimmer intensity. P2 Glow Up! Highlighter 021 High Beam is very similar in color, but it's almost a bit more white and it has a more subtle sheen. I also decided to put in, now already discontinued, Catrice Prime and Fine Highlighting Powder in 010 Fairy Dust, because it looked similar in the pan, but it's actually a bit more yellow and the least shimmery of them all.
I am absolutely in love with this palette. If I knew I would like it so much, I would have bought it myself. It's very well pigmented, the shades I'll be able to use in the winter and in the summer and the shimmer is really subtle, yet it looks very shiny. And you know I like my highlighters to shine. If you're looking for something similar, I highly recommend you to try this. I will say, it's better suited for warm skin tones, because both bronzer and blush have a very warm undertone to it. I'll also say that both of these products would probably also look really good on medium skin tone. Highlighter would be too light, but bronzer and blush could work.
