I’m not a big wearer of blush, so love blush palettes. I don’t need a full-sized product but love being able to dip into multiple tones. Aesthetically the Makeup Revolution Hot Spice Blush Palette is gorgeous. At just £6.00 I decided to treat myself and see if this product lives up to the hype.
The Hot Spice blush palette contains eight shades. Two baked blushes with gorgeous marbling which remind me of MAC’s mineralise blushes. Three mattes and three shimmers. The shimmers have very finely milled glitter which I like. I hate chunky glitter in a blush.
Hot Spice Blush Palette
The Hot Spice Blush Palette is described on the website as a blush, contour and highlight palette. Although the matte which shades I assume are intended for contouring are far too warm for me. All shades have pink / orange undertones. It’s definitely more of a cheek palette for me.
The marbled highlighting shades are highly pigmented. Slightly more pigmented than I would expect for a highlighter but they do blend out well. All shades are too pigmented so should be used carefully. Once I got the hang of how to get the best from this palette, I loved it. I like to mix all shades together to create a lovely blush tone.
There is a lot of fallout from this palette and the powders are slightly chalky. However for the price I think working around this is well worth it. The packaging is simple but effective. The plastic casing houses the powders and prevents fallout from exiting the compact.
