Makeup Revolution Ultra Blush & Contour Palette in Sugar and Spice ♥

 Hey beaut's!

You may remember that a few weeks ago on the 13th June Makeup Revolution released some gorgeous new makeup, I do have a blog post on some of the new releases that you can have a cheeky look at HERE if you like beaut's. It's fair to say that the new releases have been pretty impressive and are certainly well loved by myself, so today I thought I'd share my full thoughts on the Ultra Blush & Contour Palette in Sugar and Spice*.

Makeup Revolution have released two Ultra Blush & Contour Palettes for us to feast our eyes on, Sugar and Spice (pictured above) which is more of a pinky toned palette and Hot Spice which is alot warmer. Like I said before the Blush & Contour Palette that I have is in Sugar and Spice and comes packaged in sleek black casing with a lovely large mirror inside the pull up lid. The palette itself contains 8 large panned blushes with a mixture of shimmer and matte finishes, there's also a merged baked blusher and a merged baked highlighting powder too. The shade range in the Ultra Blush & Contour Palette is great if your a lover of all things pink as there's such a selection of differant toned pinks to choose from, however the first two shades on the top row do lean more towards warmer, bronze/peachy tones which would be ideal to warm up your complexion all year round. The merged highlighter within the palette is a bright silver-lilac shade which contains very fine flecks of silver shimmer, at first I thought it would be a very un-natural highlighting shade but actually when blended it looks super pretty and gives off a nice sheen. The merged blush has a raspberry tone too it with a metallic finish, I also noticed in certain lights that it contains minute glitters too but these aren't hugely noticeable and wont have you looking like a disco ball ha ha.
 I've found that each pan of blush within the palette has great pigmentation so be warned a little goes a very long way with these, they also feel extremely soft to swatch making the blushes a dream to work with and blend out beautifuly. As for lasting power... their great! I've found after a good 6-8 hours I could use a little top up which I think is absolutely fine considering how affordable the palette is, I also love the fact that when the blushes do start to fade they fade evenly and don't go patchy or blotchy at all because I hate that.

Yet again I'm highly impressed by Makeup Revolution, is there anything they cant do he he! 
I mean it's such a stunning palette and I honestly havent put it away since I got it. If I had to be picky I would say that the two warmer shades within the palette aren't actually warm enough for me to contour with but that aside if you have a paler complexion those shades would probably work well as contour shades. Overall the palette is an absolute beaut and is also a pretty amazing bargain at just £6.00... Yup you did read that correctly, £6.00 for 8 pans of blush, that's just 75p each, you really cant get any better than that can you. 

What do you think of the Blush & Contour Palettes beaut's?? I'd love to know.
