Unicorns Are Real

Makeup Revolution Unicorns Are Real Palette

Oh, hello! For anyone who loves a unicorn (and who doesn’t!), Makeup Revolution is back with more Unicorn-ness and a ton of shimmer for sparkling lids. It’s SO typical that my Makeup Revolution Unicorns Are Real Palette is stuck at the post office, but thankfully, MUR have lent me their swatches so you can see how this palette springs to life when the colours are on the skin.

If you fast forward to festivals, blue skies and waves of summer sunshine, you can see how this is going to come into its own for mesmerising lids and a whole lot of fun with colour. That blue! Personally, I can’t wait to try out the paler colours – they’re like lid stobes. Anyway, it’s on a secret link HERE before going fully live in a couple of day’s time. It’s £4.

NB! Just after I’d written this post, the palette arrived! So, now I have a few swatches of my own and some initial impressions.

So, the funny thing about this palette is that the colours in the pan don’t look as exciting as the colours out of the pan. It’s really a question of seeing the swatches that are absolutely gleaming, and yet look quite flat before they’re used.

You can see just how light catchy the first six shades are – stroby pastels and neutrals but they literally glow on the skin.

The second half of the palette is when the colour really starts to happen – I’m definitely trying that vibrant blue and the sheeny khaki shade. Maybe together! The formula is as you’d expect from MUR – soft and creamy and very easy on the blend. It’s really very good value for £4 and even if you’re more mermaid than unicorn, I think there are lots of shades in this palette that you’ll be able to work with. I’m looking forward to seeing other swatches and some eye looks using this on Instagram.
