Makeup Revolution Renaissance Glow Palette & Lipsticks

In today's post, I'm finally going to talk about the Renaissance Glow Palette and the Renaissance Lipsticks from Makeup Revolution, which I have been dying to review for you guys! These products have been all over Instagram lately and when I saw them for the first time I was like 'Wait, isn't that Charlotte Tilbury?' but then I was told that they're actually Makeup Revolution so it was obvious that I had to get my hands on these!

But without further ado I'd say we should just jump right into the post, shall we?

Let's start with the Glow Palette, which does not only look very sleek and pretty in that packaging with a big mirror on the inside, but the shades are also perfect for fairer skin tones!
The Sculpt shade on the left side is great for my skin tone at the moment as it is not too warm but not too ashy either. The right side of the palette is a gorgeous soft golden highlighting shade, which is not shimmery at all, just glowy!
As for the texture and the application of this sculpting and highlighting duo I have to say I was surprisingly impressed when I tried it for the first time! Both the highlighting and the sculpting shade are very soft and glide on very smoothly!

For the application, I use the Jessup Accuracy Flat Angeled 088 Brush and the Jessup Tapered Highlighter 137 Brush - I find the product to work best with those two brushes and they just blend very nicely and easily as well. However, you have to be really careful with the sculpting shade not to blend it too much otherwise it's just gone and no one will ever know you've actually made an effort contouring your face!

Both shades are quite durable but they don't last all day long, though, they make your skin look very glowy and healthy - definitely makes me look past the non-24h lasting!

Now on to the lipsticks we go!
There are lots of gorgeous shades in the Renaissance Collection but I decided to go for two which are Greatest (a pink berry-toned nude) and Lifelong (a mauve-toned nude).
I also must say that I've never used such creamy lipsticks in my entire life! They are SO creamy and the colour payoff is incredible as well! They have a satin finish and moisturise your lips very well at the same time, not to mention that they also last very well throughout the day with only occasional touch ups!
Also, can we just take a moment and talk about this stunningly gorgeous rose gold packaging?! *heart eyes emoji*

I got the palette and the lipsticks on a German website called Kosmetik4Less for €9.99 and €4.99/lipstick which I think are very reasonable prices for such good products!

Have you tried anything from the Makeup Revolution Renaissance Collection yet? x
