Makeup Revolution ‘Hot Spice’ Blush Palette

Hey there ma blogging peeps!

You guys know that I’m keen when it comes to blushes. So obviously blush palettes make me twice as keen. And yes my blogging isn’t as consistent as it use to be I am really trying to give you guys at least 1 post a week. Uni is driving me nuts and soon there is going to be a crap storm of assignments. You’d think pre writing 160 + posts would make staying consistent easier but I always forget there is a lot more to it then just pre writing. But you guys will get a post a week, I promise!
Before I begin random babbling let’s jump into the review shall we?!
Pigmentation: These blushes are very pigmented, not to the point where you’ll look like a clown when you try and use them but you still do have to be careful.
Formula: It’s a smooth formula, easy to blend out. It’s not chalky or contains random chunks of glitter.
Finish: There are 6 shades that are pretty much matte or at least they show up matte on the skin. There is a glowy blush and a highlighter shade as well in this palette. You could use the highlighter shade to layer over the matte blushes if you want to wear the shade with an added glow.
Packaging: Packaging is pretty basic, the outside of the blush palette is black in color. There’s no individuality on any of the blush palettes so you pretty much have to flip it over to know rick one you are dealing with. There is a big mirror included which is a good thing.
Wearability: The shades in this particular blush palette are very wearable. They fit with many makeup looks and also work well on fair skin.
Price: $12.71 AUD
Availability: The makeup revolution website. Those living in the UK will find it where they usually buy their drugstore makeup from.
Shade range: The shades throughout this palette are more warm toned, so it’s perfect for spring and summer (really any time of the year because who wears blushes based on what season it is.)
Pros: Shades are wearable, pigmented and go with many many makeup looks. It’s an affordable blush palette. You get many options in the one palette, making it great to travel with.
Cons: The packaging is iffy. Not only is it sometimes difficult to open but it’s not distinguishable. If the lid was clear we could at least see the shades inside.
Rating: 8/10
Overall thoughts: This is a great palette. It’s affordable, filled with wonderful wearable shades and if you’re a blush junkie like me it’s space saving as there are 8 shades in total in the one palette. Not too shabby.
That wraps up the review! Have you guys tried this blush? Do you guys lean more towards individual blushes or blush palettes? Tell me about it in the comments. I hope you all have a wonderful day and I’ll see you peeps in the next post.

    Ahh I can totally relate with you about not being on track with blogging – its hard when life gets to busy! Good luck with those pesky assignments, it'll all be worth it ^_^
    I have the palette but haven't used it much because I'm so obsessed with my NARS, after reading this though I will be digging it out and giving it a whirl – a total bargain for the price!

    The colors look so pretty! I love blush palettes, you can never have enough of those. I tend to wear 2 blushes at a time so these palettes come in pretty handy for me 🙂 X

    I don't know if I want a blush palette just yet, but maybe I'll pick up this one since it's relatively cheap and great quality! Thanks so much for the review <3

    I've seen this palette a few times but I rarely wear blush so I didn't pick it up. The shades are so pretty though! 🙂

    Good luck with your assignments. This palette looks so pretty. I had this in my collection until last year when my sister took this from she takes away most of my makeup.
