It was about time I brought this palette it’s so cheap (£9.99) i don’t know why i didn’t buy it any sooner. So I decide that this weekend I’ll purchase it then I can let you guys know what i think.
It was a lovely crisp 1st October morning and I thought ahh I’ll take my dog for a walk and on my way I’ll go to my local superdrug and pick up the palette, I wore a cute skirt with a warm jumper thinking yes this is what autumn is about, I was so excited to try this palette but on my way walking the dog didn’t it have to rain, and then hail! Like seriously why! Typical english weather – I got absolutely soaked just to get this palette so it had to be worth it!
I’ve been seeing a few bloggers trying this palette and I’ve seen make up revolution become increasingly popular. I love a bargain me, but I was a bit sceptical at first with this palette because I find you pay for what you get but it’s it cheap and does the job then its a win win.
I love the amount of variety with Fortune Favours the Brave there are 30 colours to choose from some being matte and some being glittery, when I first saw this palette the ones that grabbed my attention was the marble effect, oh they look so pretty, I noticed the dark purple/pink and it remind me of a planet – what a coincidence it was called lonely planet.
I always use my own brushes for my eyeshadow purely because they do what I need them to do but the brush that it came was actually good one side was more a thick flat brush which I used for my crease and the other side was a bigger open brush was which ideal for blending. I know for one I love it when there’s a mirror on the inside of any make up and this had a lovely full mirror perfect for on the go use.
When I went to work I decided to use the palette and see how it goes, I used mainly the matte’s in the brown shade (buffer, caffeine fix and latte) but needed some shimmer so used golden coins, and I was very pleased with the pigment off them all and really liked the overall look. I checked on my break so about 4 hours after application to see what my make up looked like and it was still there, a little bit has come off but i have seen worse before. Just a side note, while I’m writing this i did just take a picture to see what it looks like 12 hours later and my eyeliner is the only part that has really failed me, my eyeshadow is kinda there i can see some shimmer.
So overall, I am looking forward to trying more of their products, Imwas hesitant at first but I’m glad i purchased it. I’ve already got an eye on what I’m getting next. Let me know if you’ve tried make up revelation and what you thought of it.
