First Impressions – Fortune Favours the Brave Palette


I thought I would share with you my personal first impressions of the Makeup Revolution “Fortune Favours the Brave” palette as I have been so excited about picking this one up. If you have been to a local Superdrug store then you would see it displayed as “British Beauty Bloggers favourite” and to be honest I think the titled is well deserved.

The outer packaging is not the same as the rest of the palettes from Makeup Revolution I own, as it is gold which makes it feel just as special as it looks inside.

As always, there is a nice handy mirror and brush combo when you open it so you can take the palette if you need to do your makeup on the go. With a selection of 30 shades (literally from white to black), it’s hard not to be able to create a look to compliment your mood.

When I initially posted an Instagram pic of it, I received some questions around pigmentation so I also have some swatches. I personally found the pigmentation great not only that but also the texture.

Firstly I will highlight that I used a dampened eyeshadow brush to apply them which is what I do with all of my eyeshadows (I find it makes eyeshadow last longer). When I did this with shades such as Pink Diamond, Favour and Sunset Hour,they dried into what I can only describe as, a liquid metallic effect.

If you want to give this palette a go for yourself then you can pick this up from Superdrug or directly from Makeup Revolution London.

    Those colors are pretty! I also like to wet my brush when using eye shadows. Makes the colors pop more!
