Beauty | Makeup Revolutions Mermaids vs Unicorns Palette

Hey guys, hope everybody's keeping okay. I've been feeling a bit rubbish recently, I'm suffering quite bad with an allergic reaction & looking totally like Violet Beauregarde so I'm spending the majority of the day in my jim-jams catching up on blog posts. That is before I go out to night class later on - If you didn't know I've started doing a Jewellery Making course, which I've been absolutely loving and will probably be doing a blog post about when it's all finished. It's a super duper exciting time for me at the moment. What's also super duper exciting is this stunningly vibrant Mermaids vs Unicorns palette that just fell into my shopping basket. Ooops!


For me Makeup Revolution are a brand that seem to have come from nowhere, one minute they were none existent, the next minute they were all that everyone was talking about. I own a small selection of Makeup Revolution goodies and have been really impressed (especially considering the prices) so when I saw they’d launched this Mermaid Vs Unicorns palette I knew I had to have it!
The older I’m getting (because 24 is sooo old) the more I find myself experimenting with makeup, I was never really into cosmetics as a teen but I’ve really been enjoying trialing out new makeup looks recently and this palette would work perfectly for that.
The palette hosts 12 different colour shades ranging from aqua greens to deep purples – hence the name Mermaids Vs Unicorns. I’m much more of a Unicorns girl as I have green eyes so a contrasting violet shade really sits well with me but I’ll definitely be making the most from the whole range. As per usual with MakeupRevolution each shade is super-duper pigmented and they apply like a dream. Each shade has a stunning shimmer element to it, the Unicorns section considerably more than the Mermaids – So if you’re into a bit of sparkle then this is going to be perfect. The only downside that comes to mind is that the applicator brush Makeup Revolution supply isn’t the best quality but with the whole palette coming in at a highly reasonable £4.00, who am I to grumble! Let’s be honest ladies, we all own our own make up brushes anyway don’t we. Like the whole Makeup Revolution range, this palette is exceptionally good value, the way I look at it each shade is going to set you back 33p! How amazing is that. I can’t think of anything else even similar in price to this, so for that alone I am truly impressed!

Are you a mermaid or a unicorn type of gal?

  3. Gorgeous shades! I love the Unicorn shades most, too. I've never tried Makeup Revolution as I wasn't sure if they are cruelty-free; do you know? xxx
