I have the Makeup Revolution Ultra Professional Blush Palette in Hot Spice to show you today. You may remember that I reviewed the Sugar and Spice palette in November. Definitely check out that review for all of the information about these blush palettes. Both palettes perform with the same great quality and I go into detail in the previous review. Today I mostly want to show you swatches of the Hot Spice palette so you can decide which one would suit you best
The Makeup Revolution Blush Palettes are both sleek and thin, with a full mirror. The packaging is sturdy plastic that clasps shut and is great for travel. The palette contains eight shades in varying finishes. All of the shades in the Hot Spice palette have peach and coral undertones, and are all warm shades. If you have cool undertones to your skin, stick with the Sugar and Spice Palette.
Many of the shades in the Hot Spice Palette have some shimmer. There are only two true matte shades. The two shades on the far right of the palette are baked shimmery highlight shades, which I swatched last.
The first shade in the Hot Spice Palette is a dark, burnt orange shade with very subtle shimmer. It is absolutely beautiful, but a little goes a long way. The second shade is a warm medium pinky-nude shade with a matte finish, very wearable. The third shade is a bright peachy pink with subtle shimmer.
The first shade of the second row is a very shimmery coral with orange undertones. This shade has straight up glitter, which is unfortunate. The second shade is matte and is a medium peachy nude. It is very similar to the shade above it, but leans slightly less pink. The third shade on the bottom row is a bright satiny peach.
The first of the two baked highlight shades looks cool toned in the palette next to all these super warm shades, but it swatches as a neutral pink shade. The second baked shade is a fiery coral, really lovely on the right skin tone.
Just like the Sugar and Spice Palette, I think that the Makeup Revolution Ultra Professional Blush Palette in Hot Spice is a winner. Unless you have very fair skin, I think that you can probably make most of these shades work for you. You definitely need neutral or warm undertones, though. Light-Medium skin will fall in the sweet spot, but there are some shades that will look gorgeous on deep skin too. The Makeup Revolution Ultra Professional Blush Palettes are only $10, and can be found at ulta.com. Some Ultas carry the brand in-store, but mine does not, so be sure to call first before you go. Makeup Revolution is available for the $3.50 off of $10 coupon that Ulta always offers, so don’t forget to use it.
