Makeup Revolution Cover & Conceal Palette - Light and Light-Medium - Review

Hello everyone! Over the past few weeks I have been discussing the bits and bobs I have been trying from the infamous brand Makeup Revolution. One product I was particularly interested in was their Cover & Conceal Palette. 

Makeup Revolution Cover & Conceal Palette

As you can see I picked up two of these palettes. One in Light and one in Light-Medium. The reason I did this is I was very interested in using these palettes for contouring. These palettes are available for £6 each. You can check out the Cover & Conceal Palettes here on the Makeup Revolution site.

Light

Firstly the Light palette. As you can see the palettes come with 8 considerably large pans of concealer. The concealers themselves for both palettes are extremely creamy. At first I have to say this worried me! I didn't want a concealer that was going to melt off! However it is this creamy texture that allows the concealer to blend beautifully! I must warn you however that in warm weather these palettes can become even creamier so I try to avoid them when its a bit hot!

The shade selection for fair is great for those of us with paler skin and offers tons of variety.

Above you can see the top shades of the palette swatched. The variety of shades is really good in my opinion. Although in the pan the shades look very similar they are actually all incredibly different. What makes the palette so diverse is that the concealers can match those with various different skin tones.

Above are the bottom four shades in the palette. As you can see the concealers are incredibly creamy. If you are concious of creamy products then this may not be a hit for you however I loved the creamy consistency! It allowed me to blend in the product beautifully without creating any harsh lines which makes it perfect for contouring - just what I wanted it for!

Above you can see the palette in the shades Light-Medium. Personally I can see this being perfect for those that tan or even use fake tan as it offers such a diverse range of shades. I myself use these for contouring and for cream bases of neutral eyeshadows.

This picture, once again, shows the top row swatched. I'm not too keen on the fourth shade along the top row as it is very orange so I probably won't be reaching for it too often!

The bottom four shades however are absolutely gorgeous! Yes I will admit I don't reach for this palette too much except for when contouring however it is just so perfect for contouring and is also perfect for doing other peoples make-up as there is such variety!

    1. It is a fantastic palette! Great as a concealer and having a double use as a contouring palette is fantastic!

  2. This looks great. I love that there's a few shades so you can be sure to find the perfect one. My make up changes so often depending on time of year and if I have tan so this is excellent!

    1. For the price you can't argue - you're bound to find your shade one of the palettes. I find it is fantastic for when you're doing friends and family members make-up!

  3. That's interesting, I saw 'Light/Medium' in stores then online saw separate 'Light' and 'Medium' palette so assumed it was a typo. Good to kind out they're two different products! x

  4. This looks like a good palette if you're a makeup artist but I probably wouldn't get as much use out of it for my personal use only! Great review x
