It’s taken me a VERY long time to write this, simply because, I love Makeup Revolution and I don’t want to upset them. I really mean that, they’re one of my favourite brands with for a number of reasons, affordable makeup, flipping amazing pigments and they’re constantly bringing out new and amazing things. However, when they launched their sister brand, Freedom Makeup Pro, I couldn’t help but just wonder why? You’ve got such a good thing going, why bring out such similar products in pretty much the same packaging, for around the same price, under a different name?
A dramatic title because I’m honestly not a fan, even though the products are pigmented, there’s nothing wrong with the packaging, the prices are on point compared to most brands, I just won’t buy into the whole gimmick with my own hard earned money. Maybe they’ll be that exclusive product that changes my mind and makes me overlook everything, but I’m still waiting. So, if you can personally get over that and spend your money regardless, shall we move onto the actually products?
The Pro Correcting Palette and Concealing Palette are basically a dupe of MACs, I can’t say if they’re as pigmented as I’ve honestly never tried them as I don’t need to correct my skin and I’m too pale for the concealers, but they are amazingly pigmented and super creamy. They blend so easily and I can’t say anything bad about them at all, especially not for £5. I mean, they’re not as deep as you might think, but a little goes a long way with products like these.
The lipsticks were shockingly impressive and super pigmented, you’ll definitely see these come into play around Halloween, especially at £1 each. The Pro Lip Melts are the same as those from Makeup Revolution, super pigmented but super sticky. Good for editorial stuff, or again, Halloween looks. I’ve had these for a while but I’ve never worn them out as they’re far too sticky to be comfortable for long periods of time.
Finally, the Bronzer and Contour Palette Fair are odd colours and rather orange/warm for pale skin, but for warmer skin tones I can imagine they work really well. I love using the contour palette on no makeup days when I just want a little cheekbone and the vanilla colour is a dream. It really highlights and is a fantastic formula which isn’t too powdery at all.
