Make Up Revolution August Mystery Bag Revealed!

by - Sunday, September 09, 2018


Welcome back everyone! 

I hope everyone had good summer holiday break. I am returning to you with many new posts so stayed tuned for so much beauty related content this month! My first post back as you already see will be about Make Up Revolution and their August Mystery Bag. If you haven't already seen my post about my first ever Mystery Bag from Revolution that I got in June, you can read it here -> Revolution Mystery Bag

As usual, you need to spend £25 on Superdrug.com to receive a free mystery bag from Make Up Revolution. The items I have decided to buy were - 



I am so in love with this palette! I'm not sure if you all are aware but Imogen is a beauty blogger from Britain and she has recently teamed up with Revolution to create two beautiful palettes - an eyeshadow palette and face highlight/contour palette. I have decided to only purchase this one because I could not justify buying yet another eyeshadow palette that I really did not need. Firstly, the packaging is so beautiful. I have used the flash to show you the rainbow effect which I am dying over! There is 10 shade inside the palette which I think is amazing for £10. All the shades are very pigmented and I love how the highlight shows on my face, it really is popping! 


I would so recommend this palette to everyone because it is truly great and amazing quality for its price. And the packaging is just to die for!!!



I don't want to say a lot about this product because I am planning to focus on it in a separate post about loose powders but I have to say it's not the best baking powder out there. Yes, it is cheaper than most of them but I would prefer paying more for something that does a good job, than for something that doesn't really work that well. More to come soon in my post about loose/baking powders so stay tuned.... :D


 Girls Best Friend Highlighter (£6) from IHeartRevolution 


I have always been a fan of IheartRevolution because of their cool concept of make up products but this highlighter stole my heart. Its shape and packaging is everything and I mean it's just super cute! The pigment is definitely there but if you're someone who loves a lot of pigment that pops up then I'd suggest going for the Imogenation Highlight to the Moon Palette, as for me shades in that palette have a little bit more pigment than this one. 



Soft Glam who?! When Anastasia Beverly Hills launched the Soft Glam palette I knew I wanted it straight away because of the colours BUT I decided to wait until I save more money before I spend £43 on a palette. Don't get me wrong, I have expensive palettes in my collection, like Huda Beauty or Kylie Cosmetics, that cost more than ABH, but I just refused to spend that much on that particular palette. When I heard that Revolution was coming up with a 'dupe' I didn't think much of it, dupes are cool and all that but they're never of the same or as good quality as the original, especially when the original is £43 and the dupe only £4. Guys! I finally got it and used it for about 2 weeks now and I got to say it -> it's fricking amazing! The pigment is so there, the shimmers are so beautiful and there is barely any fallout!!! Just WOW! I was shocked that a palette that costs only £4 can be this good! For this reason, I truly believe that if you are dying to get the Soft Glam palette but cannot afford it than you should really consider getting this one. I don't have the Soft Glam to do a full comparison but feel free to watch any youtube tutorials and you'll see I am telling the truth. This palette is so good, that you won't feel the need to get the original. The second good thing is that Revolution has a dupe for almost all ABH palettes and they are all £4. Now, I'm not sure if they're the same quality but I'm sure they are just as good as this one is, so really, if you are not willing to spend £43 on ABH palettes, then make sure to check out the Revolution palettes just for £4!




As you can see all the eyeshadow shades are so pigmented and they look just as beautiful on the eyes! The only one I don't really like is the last black shadow but I usually only use black eyeshadows to create an eyeliner, so it's not the biggest problem for me.


The mystery bag had - two highlighters, one eyeshadow palette and two lip kits. To be honest, I preferred the mystery bag I have received in June because the items were more suitable for my skin colour - there was a white highlighter etc, whereas this is more darker therefore would look amazing on a darker skin tone. For this reason, I am more likely to give those highlighters away to my friends who will actually wear it. The eyeshadow palette had basic eyeshadow colours that can be used to create everyday looks with it but because I didn't really need it, I gave it away to my mother lol. The two lip kits are also too dark for me, so I decided to also give them away to those who would actually use it - for this reason I didn't swatch them. Let me know if you'd be interested with a giveaway to win those lip kits, although I have a better giveaway in mind - more info soon to come!

I hope you enjoyed this post, let me know what items you liked the most. Also, let me know if you ever tried Make Up Revolution, and if so, what items are your favourites? Make sure to follow my blog and leave a comment if you enjoy reading my blog - thank you for all your support! 

Love, Olivia xo

  1. This is so cool! I didn’t even know they were doing this. For the price it’s defin worth it. It’s cool to have a collection centered around one brand. While I believe some of the shades were very basic a beginner might not have them and in that sense it’s great for someone trying to grow their collection. I love how it’s not catered around just one skin tone so you’re able to try the different products. The nudeish lipkit looks really good. I wonder how the formula is. Anyways beautiful swatches!

  2. That palette that is a dupe for soft glam looks so amazing ���� I wish I had seen it before I had bought it myself because while softglam is very pretty, it is not super pigmented, especially for the price it cost! I will be sure to recommend it to others if I hear they want it. The grab bag even though it isn't suitable to your skin tone is such a cool idea because it can help you branch out and use stuff that you were never yourself willing to try, that gold highlight bar is beyond gorgeous!
