New In: Makeup Revolution Ultra Contour Palette

Hello everyone :) It's Tuesday today so I hope you had a great start of the week. I'm expecting Ikea delivery today, which is quite exciting as I'm finally adding some final touches to my bedroom/beauty room.

Today I have some exciting new product to share with you. I believe I'm partially responsible as I'v been asking Makeup Revolution and Mr Minto himself to bring out their version of Contour Kit. Can I just take all the credit? Lol. I had to test it so I ordered it once it premiered. Delivery was really quick as I placed an order on Thursday afternoon and I received it on Monday. So well done MUR :)

Packaging is a standard Ultra product packaging. Plastic and sturdy with a large mirror. I'm slightly disappointed as I would like to see more products in matte plastic as their Iconic Pro palettes for example. I find it to look more expensive and pro. Nevertheless it's a well made packaging and I'm sure it will last through travel.

Makeup Revolution Ultra Contour Palette

Inside the palette you will find 8 pans of product. Top row we have a very light powder, matte with slight cool undertone as well as matte, banana powder (ABH inspiration). Then there is a sheer powder with some highlight to it in champagne colour as well as baked highlighter, with light gold sheen to it. Bottom row you have your bronzer/contour shades. First one is a light colour bronzer with neutral tones. Second is a cool toned contour shade. Thirdly we have a deeper but still medium toned, warm bronze shade. Lastly we have a baked warm bronzer shade with just a little of satin finish - gorgeous for summer.

Bottom row bronzers & contour

I've done swatches of all the shades for you. I like that all the shades are quite buttery and soft and I'm looking forward to start using this palette to both set my makeup and contour. I don't lack in bronzers and contour products, however this is my first contour kit. I know and love Makeup Revolution and if I like this product, I may be tempted to purchase the original behind this greatly designed dupe - Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit. I've been eyeing it for months but the price tag is a commitment.

I'm super happy that I've picked up this palette and I'm excited to take it for a proper test run. Will it end up in favourites? Only time can tell. My first impressions are super positive. I only wish the banana shade was little lighter than it is. It's not showing on my skin too much but the lighter shade would have been perfect for someone as pale as I am :)

Are you tempted to pick up MUR's Ultra Contour palette? Or maybe you already own it? Let me know what your thoughts are?

You can buy it here for £8.00.

Thank you for reading.
Love,

Dorota x

  2. This palette looks so pretty, but I don't think I would use all those shades.

    1. For me it's the opposite. I use it all but I do love my mattes so they are most used. I love quality of these shadows. It's quite incredible xx
