With the success of warm toned palettes last year (one that immediately springs to mind is the Morphe 35O), it’s no surprise to me that this is still a trend moving into 2018. However, I do think to some extent this is now causing a bit of an over-saturated market. Saying this, it’s quite interesting to see which palette (with so many to choose from) is top dog! The Makeup Revolution Flawless 4 palette is one such warm toned offering that’s new to the market. It contains 32 gorgeous shades housed in a rose gold palette, and this is what their website has to say about it:
Our newest instalment of our fan favourite Flawless palette! Our new flawless 4 palette offers 32 versatile mix of matte and shimmer shades, from neutrals to warm to smoky. Every shade you need to create every day looks or take it to the next level with the selection of bold shades. Long wearing intense and easy to blend formula.
Blend matte shades with a fluffy blending brush, or flat shader brush for maximum pigmentation. Apply shimmer shades with flat synthetic brush, or finger, these can be used wet or dry depending on your desired intensity. Encased in our matte rose gold palette with a full-size mirror
The mirror is truly a great size for the smaller size of the palette and the fact that the packaging is matte means that it doesn’t get finger prints all over it. The hard plastic packaging also makes for a perfect travel companion. This palette retails for £8 and you can find it on the Tam Beauty website or Superdrug (in store or online). This is relatively expensive in comparison to some of the other Makeup Revolution Palettes that I own (you can see my previous review of the Iconic Division palette here), most of which come in at about £4, but these do have far less shades in them.
Shades and Swatches | Makeup Revolution Flawless 4 Palette Review
Row 1 | Makeup Revolution Flawless 4 Palette Review
Left to Right: Statement, Bloom, Hotter, Muted, Cardinal, Palette Whistle, Control, Spin
I really appreciate there being a matte white shade in this palette as it makes it feel more complete to me. All the other shades in this row are shimmers or metallic colours.
Row 2 | Makeup Revolution Flawless 4 Palette Review
Left to Right: Dahlia, Blush, Bittersweet, Glowing, Down Boy, Candle, Cerise, Garnet
This row has a great variety in mattes, ranging from mustard and peach to deep browns and dusty mauves. The only non-matte in this row is ‘Blush’ which is essentially a matte with golden glitter flecks in it – although this translates as matte on the eyes.
Row 3 | Makeup Revolution Flawless 4 Palette Review
Left to Right: Sunday, On Top, Baby, Hair Down, Drop, Hold Me, Ouch, Blend
‘Sunday’ is my ideal shade to set down my primer as it is a beige very close to my skin-tone. ‘Ouch’ is a welcome inclusion of a cooler toned shade in the Makeup Revolution Flawless 4 palette, as is ‘Blend’ – a matte black.
Row 4 | Makeup Revolution Flawless 4 Palette Review
Left to Right: Kisses, Pastel, Crimson, Not Today, Rock Me, Dense, Burn It, Work It
My favourite metallic shades in this palette are in this row – they give more variety to this overall palette. ‘Not Today’ is my favourite shade in this entire palette.
Overall, I find that all of the shades in this palette are very pigmented and blendable (especially for the price), and find that the shimmers in this palette are particularly wonderful to work with. I’m looking forward to trying more of their palettes that are this size and I’m sure I’ll let you know what I think!
