Budget but fabulous beauty brand Make-Up Revolution have released their version of the beauty advent calendar and I can’t wholly make up my mind about how I feel about it. Now, it is not the products I am unsure about, as I use Make-Up Revolution on a daily basis, but it is in fact the price of the calendar that I find stumps me a little. The calendar costs £50 and contains 25 products, but the majority of these products retail at £1 and I think only 3 of the products inside retail over this price, meaning quite an expense for products you could go choose yourself for possibly cheaper than the price of the calendar. However, that being said I do love Make Up Revolution and I do love Beauty Advent Calendars and so it was a given that I would be trying this out.
Design-wise I love this a LOT – it has a smooth black finish with rose gold detailing giving a hint to which product may be behind which door. I do love love love rose gold! It is a book-style calendar, in the way that it opens up and so you can either have it closed if you don’t have a lot of space, or open it up and display the fabulousness. It comes in a plastic sleeve which shows you what you are getting inside, and as with all my calendar reviews, I have opened a few doors for you but will list the products below…
* Redemption Palette
* 3 Mono Eyeshadows
* 6 Amazing Lipsticks
* 3 Baked Highlighters (I can’t get enough of these – they’re fab!)
* 3 Blushers
* 2 Intense Lip Glosses
* 2 Amazing Lip Glosses
* 5 Nail Polishes
Colour-wise, Make-Up Revolution have included a variety of colours, not too wild, that will suit most skin tones and ages. So I think most people will really enjoy this calendar, as well as it giving you the chance to try a shade or product you might not necessarily go for in a shop and if you don’t like something I am sure you will always have a friend or family member who would love to give it a whirl.
The Make-Up Revolution Beauty Advent Calendar costs £50 and is available at Superdrug here, where it is currently £45 on offer.
