Fortune Favours The Brave MUR Palette

Fortune Favours The Brave

Fortune Favours The Brave

So, at last – the project that I’ve been working on with Makeup Revolution is finally ready for scrutiny. It’s a 30 pan palette, with hopefully something for everyone. At the back of my mind though has always been to create a palette that uncovers a grown-up play element of makeup no matter what your age or tone – an ‘every woman’ palette. If you thought you couldn’t do a smoky eye at fifty or whatever age, yes you can, because if I can, anyone can.

What you’ll find in Fortune Favours The Brave is light sheens and mattes, metallic bursts of colour heading through to the darkest shades of black, plum and navy. I hope that it’s the kind of palette that you really feel you can sit down and experiment with and identify what shades really bring out your eye colour and compliment your tone.

Although it’s the absolute dream to be asked to create a palette like this, as you can see from the pile of rejected palettes in the picture above, it’s not easy! I have sent it back so many times that the launch (due January) had to be delayed and I know that in some Superdrug stores there are empty spaces on the MUR stands waiting..oops. But, it had to be right.

As you’ll know if you are a regular reader, I’ve followed the Makeup Revolution journey from their very first day. It’s not my story to tell, but it’s a brand that has risen from determination against the odds, which is why the name, Fortune Favours The Brave, is perfect on more than one level.  I love that MUR is accessible to everyone on price point with no loss on quality. I know that the brand is highly aware that their support from bloggers and vloggers is what has allowed them to flourish so quickly and they’re always the first to re-gram or re-Tweet and join in the social media circle as it should be played. They’re one of the few brands that make the products about you and not about them on social channels.

Row 1

Row 1: Glimmer, Buffeer, Peachy, Hope, Fortune, Skylight, Transformer, Midnight Rainbow

Row 2

Row 2: Ice Cloud, Golden Coins, Cashmere, Tip Top,  Green Machine, Smoothie – at the end is Smoothie because it’s my favourite shade in the palette.

Row 3:

Row 3: Caffeine Fix, Latte, Pink Diamond, Creme, Drama Queen, Lonely Planet, Blacqua.

Row 4

Row 4: Soft, New World, Favour, Sunset Hour, Super Gold, Winning, Brave, The Revolution.

In terms of formula, the ultrasheens are soft which is what makes them so blendable so don’t go digging in there (a sweep of a brush is fine), the mattes are smooth and buildable and the shimmers offer as little or as much twinkle to the eye as you like.

The casing is gold rather than traditional MUR black, because rediscovering yourself, beauty wise, experimenting when you might not otherwise even go there and enjoying paying attention to yourself is a rich pleasure whatever way you look at it. It’s something that gets forgotten all too often.

I’ve popped the above combination up so you can see how the shades perform when the light hits them.

I hope Fortune Favours The Brave does open some new makeup doors and I have a big thank you to say to Adam and Jackie at Makeup Revolution for letting me loose on a palette and being endlessly patient. They’ve both become valued friends that I feel lucky to have. The Fortune Favours The Brave MUR Palette launches on 17th March for £10.

  10. BPJ

    I’ve been looking for a palette like this forever! I can’t wait to buy it.

  11. amy kemp

    Oh wow. This looks like such an amazing palette!
    I have been trying to decide on a new MUR palette since I regretted buying Ultra Mattes due to too little shade range for 32 colours.

  12. Amy

    This looks amazing Jane! Such a great price, (what more can you expect from MUR though right). Will be picking one up as soon as I see it.

  13. Yasmine M

    This palette looks fantastic, and what a great name! Love the range of shades and the galactic ones are divine. Will definitely be investing when it launches. Congrats to you and I hope it flies off the shelves!

  16. Bella

    At first I was like “Hmm, a 30 piece eye shadow pallet?” because I often find that many colours to be too many, and that any theme gets lost, but omg, Jane, this is beautiful. I need it. I have to have it. The whole thing – the packaging, the colour choices, the way they’re laid out, is just beyond gorgeous. Thank you so much for your hard work because it really looks as if it’s paid off and I cannot wait to get my hands on this and play around with the shades!

  17. Leigh

    Eeeeeeh! I’m so excited and delighted for you. I will be buying this next week for sure 🙂

  19. Linda

    Congratulations. Looks amazing can’t wait to try.

  20. Toni

    Oh Jane, how exciting! This palette looks really lovely. The gold casing along with black interior kinda reminds me of the Gwen Stefani palette.

  21. Charlie

    I have just seen this on Makeup Revolutions Instagram and thought it was so beautiful!
    Cannot wait to purchase – thank you for making such a great palette!

  22. Tubbs

    I want one of those. That is all. Jane, it’s beautiful. You must be thrilled and rightly so.

    This palette looks amazing, you’ve done a great job on it! I love the shade range. The packaging is beautiful & I particularly like the look of the mottled shadows. Xx

  28. Clbnolan

    Seriously nice job Jane! Hope you feel as proud as you should xCx

  29. Sarmala

    Will this palette be available in the states at Ulta beauty store? MUR is an exclusive brand of ULTA in US. Hope the answer is YES. Because I want it. Jane, you continue to surprise and delight.

  30. Gauri

    Sounds very promising. Have to try this.

  31. Claire McDonnell

    I think this will be an instant sellout – looks fantastic x

  32. Mrs Mouse

    It looks fabulous! Love the layout and all the thought that has obviously gone into it. Congratulations!

  33. Lee

    That’s a great price point for such a big palette and the colours all look so wearable. I think I will be buying a few as presents for my sisters as well as for me.

  34. jenny

    Looks amazing Jane – well worth the hard work. Amazing value and am sure it will fly in terms of sales. So great to see link ups llike this born out of a singular vision and shared passion rather than just someone slapping their name on a pack

  35. Yenners

    Gorgeous colours! Will this be available online with international shipping. I live down under.

  36. Brucemum

    Well done. Looks like a fantastic range of colours. Can’t wait to get my hands on one.

  37. Sue Fallon

    Can’t wait, hope it doesn’t sell out if I wait till payday! Really love the swatches, and I hope MUR doesn’t mind me saying, but it looks like they should collaborate with you all the time! Beautiful colours, just what I’m looking for. And the pigment pay off is what I look for too. 53 year old eye lids stay nice only if you are not pulling them around. The minute you do, it all goes wrong!

  38. Beauty and Baby UK

    Congratulations Jane! the palette looks lovely can’t wait to get my hands on it and create different looks!

  39. Jo2

    Well this is exciting! I’ve been trying not to buy more make up but I think I can make an exception for this!

  40. Emma

    Great job! Hope this is going to be part of the permanent line. Emma x

  41. Claire L

    That looks a gorgeous palette, Jane, you can tell you’ve worked really hard on it. I too, do hope MUR makes it permanent, it deserves to be! Xx

  42. Tipped Off Nails

    It looks amaxing! Can’t wait to see it x

  43. Rebecca

    I need the 17th to hurry up! Supposed to be going on a make up ban!

  44. angellecmakeup

    Eee I’m so excited and congratulations on designing such a gorgeous palette! Definitely putting 17th March in my diary xx

  45. Sophie Bird

    Jane, this palette looks so pretty. I must admit that I do usually buy expensive brands but this looks so great and with your experience behind it I’m definitely going to hunt for one next Thursday. I think the four marbled shades were a great choice; they really stand out and make it even more of a must-have. It looks incredible value.

  46. Leah

    Congratulations! I’ll be snapping one up. Both the colours and the design are stunning. xx

  47. Thera van Homeyer

    Well done you!, well done MUR, for picking up on what real women and girls really want. Greetings from really snappy Amsterdam, from Thera

  48. Harriet

    Wonderful concept! Make up should be exciting and fun, at all ages! And at £10 no one need feel guilty for experimenting.

  49. Alice

    Oh wow, what an exquisite palette, very elegant and looks high end, everything, packaging, layout, shade selection, and the double ended brush! Very well done Jane! Now this is how a collaboration between brand and blogger should be! Not just slapping on a name on sone generic palette. Also the marbled eyeshadows look so interesting! Absolutely love it!

  50. katieemmabeauty

    This is incredible! I really can’t wait to see it in the store!

    Katie |

  51. LilyM

    How wonderful! Nice one, Jane- I’m going to get one ASAP 🙂

  52. Louise Coates

    Ordered it yesterday, I can’t wait to start experimenting with it

  53. Jess

    I’ve just got this today Jane and it’s absolutely bloody stunning, I can’t stop looking at it! Well done you on such a perfect collaboration <3

  54. ladycampbell

    After reading about this I went ahead and ordered mine! Thanks so much. I am 59 and love make-up and I know I can really use almost all of the colours here.Unlike some of the boring palettes I have tried before

    Hi Jane,

    Have been following your blog for years and normally my comments are positive. I know you are a huge fan of this company. I realise that I am rather late to this party but I wanted to let you know about the terrible customer service I have recieved from MUR, now TAM Beauty. I ordered your gorgeous pallette almost three weeks ago and have still not received it. They use Royal Mail delivery and my item was returned to TAM Beauty over a week ago (in fairness RM have messed up as they attempted one delivery and never left me notification) but TAM Beauty are now saying that they haven’t recieved the item and are not offering to send me a new one or refund me at this stage despite my providing the tracking number, order number and all sorts of proof that I’m not fiddling them. Anyway, I wanted you and other customers to be aware – I emailed them today and I told them that I would comment on your blog. It’s not good customer service and a poor reflection on them. It looks like I’ve spent my money and I am still not in possession of my coveted item which I had hoped to take on holiday. It looks gorgeous but I’m not impressed with TAM Beauty at all.

    • Jane

      Clare, this isn’t acceptable..thanks for letting me know – I’ll speak to the brand and email you privately when I get a response for you x

      • Clare

        Thanks Jane. I have commented on a more recent post just now – I did receive the palette finally and…wow…I LOVE it. In fact, two of my friends now want one! Thanks for all your help xx
