Makeup Revolution Protection Pallet : Review

Hello everyone..

Today I’m going to review Makeup Revolution Protection Pallet. I absolutely love products from Makeup Revolution as they have really good quality products at extremely affordable prices.

I personally feel that makeup is all about getting your basics right!  And often that is where most of us tend to go wrong.. 

Thanks to Makeup Revolution for coming to our rescue by providing us with pallet that has all base related products in place. They have come up with a beautiful pallet called Makeup Revolution Protection Pallet that have combination of 3 different toned concealers, pressed powder, blush, highlighter and bronzer, so you really do have everything you need to perfect your base. Along with that pallet it has really good quality large mirror. Yay!!

I’m already impressed with the product just because it has all essential products in 1 pallet.

The Makeup Revolution Protection Pallet are available in four different color variants depending on skin tone, so there’s Light, Light/Medium, Medium/Dark and Dark. 
I have this pallet in Medium shade

Price: 1350 INR but I got it for 30% discount from Jabong. You can also get even get it on


It comes in standard makeup revolution packing which is classy black and rose gold. What I like the most about the packing is that it is classy simple and to the point with all the necessary information. It is nice sturdy pallet and completely travel friendly so that you can carry it around for touchups. 

It has 3 concealers of 3.5 gms each, 7.2 gms of Face powder and 4 Gms each of blusher, highlighter and bronzer. I feel it is sufficient quantity and it totally justifies the price of product.



I had really wonderful experience with this pallet and I’m totally in love with it. Let’s check each item individually to know why I’m head over heels in love with it.


Like I said before, there are 3 concealers on the left side of pallet in light, medium and dark shade. Concealers are nice thick, smooth and super creamy in texture. They are extremely easy to blend and to work with. I feel like they have cream to powder type formula so they don’t look cakey when applied to eye area or blemishes. 

It doesn't provide full coverage but are still good for everyday use. Light one is too light for me so mostly I use it for subtle highlighting. As there are 3 concealers one can mix and match them to suit their skin tone perfectly.

Once they are set with powder they are good for at least 5 -6 hours without touch ups. Even with its creamy texture it doesn't slide or causes oily looking skin. Despite their creaminess they are very light weight and look absolutely natural once blended and set with powder.

Compressed Face Powder:

Next up is compressed face powder. It has soft silky smooth texture and the shade suits my skin perfectly. I normally just use it for my under eye and T zone. I love its light weight formula and translucent dewy finish it imparts to my face.

Bronzer Blush and Highlighter:

Bronzer, blush and Highlighter are perfect for contouring. They are extremely pigmented and can be easily compared with high end brands.

Just one swipe of highlighter is sufficient to impart natural glow to the face without looking over the top. It is so insanely pigmented that if not used wisely one can really end up looking like a disco ball.

Contouring powder is matte powder with no orange or red undertones that makes it perfect for contouring. It is my most favourite item from the pallet.

Blush is in nice dusty rose pink which gives beautiful natural flush to the skin. Again blush is insanely pigmented and need to be used sparingly. It is perfect for daily use.

All the three together makes a perfect combo for Indian skin tone. Just like powder they are really smooth and have silky texture. They bend beautifully to give very natural and flawless effect. Plus they have amazing staying power..

I just can’t tell you give how much I love this pallet and I cannot recommend it enough.

  1.   Great all in one pallet that caters to all basic makeup needs.
  2. Affordable
  3. Extremely good quality and quantity of products provided
  4.  Highly pigmented
  5.  Non comedogenic products 
  6. Travel friendly
  7. Good variants for all skin tones. 
  8. Variety of concealers to mix and get exact colour 
  9. Sturdy packing 


 Overall thoughts:

I totally love Makeup Revolution Protection Pallet and it has always come in handy in all the situations. I only have this one makeup product in my bag as it does all the jobs if I ever wanted to touch up my makeup. 

Rating: 5/5

Recommendation: I highly recommend it and I personally feel that it’s a must have product.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Illuminating Brush Concealer

Heyya beauty queens…
I believe everybody needs a concealer some day or other and hence it is very essential to have a good concealer as part of our makeup kittys. So I was on look out for a good drugstore concealer as the late night studies and continuous staring at laptop was taking a toll on my eyes...(under eye pigmentation and bags  L L). That when I found this Bourjois Healthy Mix Illuminating Brush Concealer. Let’s take a look at product and see how it fairs

Company claim: (from official website)
  •  Double action concealer for a brighter complexion and an instant anti-fatigue result!
  •  Conceal those imperfections in the stroke of a brush and smooth away dark circles.
  •  It is enriched with light reflecting pigments to illuminate the darker areas of the face. Its unifying texture will     glide onto the skin with a feather-light feel and give you a truly illuminated result!
  • Its innovation: A practical brush tip pen releases just the right amount of formula for a precise application, perfect for touch ups on the go!
  •  And it’s good for skin:
  •  Antioxidant vitamins C and E
  •  Hypoallergenic formula
  •  Dermatological tested.

Shades available:

It is available in 3 shades
61 Beige Claire 62 Beige Rose 63 Beige Dore
The shade that I’m reviewing is 62 Beige Rose.


Its packaging reminds me of YSL Touche Eclat. Because of the bright red cap it’s easy to locate and the pen type packaging makes it easy to use. It has a brush for the tip which is soft and of good quality; it doesn't irritate the delicate under eye skin while applying the product. You need to twist the bottom part for the product to come out. We get enough quantity of product in one twist to cover an eye plus you can decide how much product you want and twist it as per that (good customization…). On the downside pen feels bit unhygienic and to clean it is bit of trouble.


It is a liquid concealer and has a slight runny texture that makes it perfect for blending. I prefer liquid concealer for under eyes as the skin in this part is thinner then reset of face so bending can be bit of problem and I feel cream concealers makes under eye are look cackey..and can settle in fine lines..(my opinion)

Swatches :



Twist the pen to get enough product on the brush. Then put 5-6 dots and blend it with your fingers or any concealer brush. The brush on the tube is not enough for blending the product completely so we need to blend it finger for flawless finish. The set it with powder for better stay time.


It gives medium coverage for under eye portion and instantly brightens up my eye and makes them look fresh. It doesn't my under eyes look grayish which is definitely plus as it has yellow tones in it which is good for most Indian skin tones
You can build up the coverage as per your desire without the risk of looking made up or having cackey feel..
It doesn't cover acne marks so well (medium coverage) but still if used with corrector does a decent job on them as well…
We can also use Bourjois Healthy Mix Illuminating Brush Concealer as a highlighter on the face, under our eyes, the bridge of our nose, and on the highest cheekbones. It gives a nice subtle glow to face
Stay time:

I stay in Mumbai where climate is hot and humid plus I travel in trains I tend to get sweaty a lot still once I set with powder it stays for good 3-4 hours without fading but then it fades evenly without looking patchy.

Price: 615 Rs. I got mine from

  •   Good coverage
  •  Affordable price
  •  Pretty good stay time
  •  Easy to carry for touch ups
  •  Can be used as illuminator
  •  Instantly brightens the tired eyes
  •  Good sturdy packaging
  •  Good amount of product

  •  Availability
  • Pen brush is unhygienic
  • Shade selection is very limited
  • Doesn't cover acne marks completely.
  • Stay time could have been more.



It is a good and affordable product if you need medium coverage for you’re under eyes and require brightening effect on most days. I would definitely recommend it.
