Makeup Revolution – ‘Ultra Cover and Conceal Palette’ in light – Review

This is only going to be a quick one but I wanted to share my thoughts on the Makeup Revolution ‘Ultra Cover and Conceal’ palette with you. It comes in three shade sets in light, light – medium and medium – dark which offers a fantastic shade range (The light starts at super light and the dark goes really really dark, fantastic!)
The palette is housed in this big, strong case with a shiny finish to it (not great for finger prints, dust and reflections, sorry!), it feels like fantastic quality and it has a massive, full sized mirror inside. These amazing palettes cost only £6!

With my super pale skin there was never any question as to what shade set I’d get, everything in this post is showing you the shades from the light palette.

Obviously the only draw back with a palette like this is that you won’t need all of the shades, but at the bargain price that’s hardly going to cause a big problem. I’ve found, though, that I definitely use more shades than you might think.

As you can see there’s nice coverage from these. They’re very creamy and if you don’t get enough coverage to begin with you can definitely build these due to the fantastic formula.

I find that I use the latest shade, on the top left, on the brow bone and down the centre of the nose for a highlight with coverage. The second shade is the one I use to cover blemishes and then the second one in on the bottom line is what I use for the under eye as it has a slightly more peachy tone to it which is why is needed to balance out the blue tones we get under our eyes.

I really like these concealers and they’re delightful to blend in to the skin. Due to them being creamy you need to set them with a powder but that’s the same with a lot of my favourite concealers and I don’t see it as a bad thing as it’ll give you a longer lasting look.

Honestly I can’t quite believe this only costs £6, when I knew it was being released I really expected it to cost more. There’s nothing about this palette that feels cheap, at all, either. I am intent on finding ways to use the  other shades as I just can’t help trying to make the most out of these things, haha! Definitely a winner for me, being the absolute concealer addict that I am.
