Makeup Revolution isn’t a brand that instantly captured my heart like so many others, although I love a good budget brand I can sometimes be sceptical that quality may be sacrificed, but I’ve tried a fair few products so after lusting after the Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blushers I decided to pick this up to see if it would be any good, here’s my thoughts.
In terms of the packaging I’m pretty neutral, the box makes it feel a little more luxurious but this is a flimsy plastic tube with a nib, you are supposed to shake this before use which is fine, I kind of like the packaging in the fact that it definitely looks like a dupe for the Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blushers but at the same time this is flimsy. I believe this cost me £3.00.
The product doesn’t really smell of anything, I’m not quite sure why but it reminds me so much of liquid icing that I kind of expected it to smell the same, realistically though I’m not fussed as added perfumes tend to irritate my skin. I assumed that this would be water based but very pigmented especially as the instructions recommend one drop for each cheek.
Here there is more than one drop but I wanted the swatch to be clearly visible. I really like the blue toned pink shade and I assumed by this swatch the colour wouldn’t be clownish and that I would be left with a fresh tint to the cheeks with the water effectively toning down some of the pigment, unfortunately I was wrong.
I blended in the product and nothing…On my hand there was no visible tint or colour, I even tried layering up the drops but nothing, all I really ended up with was glittery water, to get any sort of colour I’d have to use half of the bottle and even then it was so runny that I imagine that it would be really messy. This is even too shimmery and glittery to be used as a highlight so I just don’t find any sort of use for this at all.
Overall, I’m really disappointed, no decent colour, too much glitter and a watered down mess, this hasn’t put me off of the Daniel Sandler blushers as I’ve heard rave reviews and I imagine the quality and formula to be much better, but this was just a waste of time and money, I wouldn’t repurchase nor recommend and I can’t think of anyone that would use this, it’s a real shame.
The Makeup Revolution The One Fluid Blusher in Pink Dew is available here for £3.00.
