Make-Up Designory is a brand that isn't so well know like (Mac, Inglot, MUFE etc.) in Ireland and probably a lot more countries, but it should be . The quality of their makeup is (and I will say it) better than Mac, the eye shadows are creamy,pigmented, blend like a dream, lipsticks last on the lips for hours and hours even after eating and drinking. All of the products that I have tried are amazing quality and the price range is cheaper than Mac.
Since the Valentines day is around the corner, y'all need to be glammed up with the best makeup that will last you trough the night without needed to retouch every hour.  
Lots of people will be getting Makeup as a Vday present so some of these products might interest you :) 
I will start with face products and honest to God if there is one thing that you will try from their range get this Translucent powder.  This is the best powder you will ever use, and I have  tried a ridiculous amount of powders,  so for me to say this is the best one means a lot. It doesn't crease under eyes, or look powdery which a lot of powders tend to do. Keeps my oily skin balanced , it is really finely milled so it wont leave a white cast and feels like velvet. This powder is perfect for ,mature skin as well, since I got it this is the only powder I take everywhere with no doubt. I only buy things in 2 when they are really really good and I'm afraid to run out of them cuz I know I wont get anything like it elsewhere.
Price: 27.00
MUD: Sunshine bronzer.  The color is gorgeous, it looks amazing on the skin as well as it suits a range of skin tones so that's why this has been my favorite bronzer to take with me if I'm doing makeup, it its so easy to build up without it starting to look cakey or powdery on the skin. If you are just starting out in makeup or just want to try a new bronzer you will love this.
Price: 24.00

Alongside to the bronzer this brush  Nr 700 will sculpt your cheekbones to the Gods. It wont leave a just a straight line since i`1t is soft and the bristles aren't just in line it will give gorgeous sculpted but blown out look without having any harsh lines.
 This brush in nr920 and the next brush I will show a picture of are a must have for any Makeup artist or a makeup lover. This small angled brush  is so thin and it gives really great precision as well as if you use this to fill in eyebrows with small brush strokes it will give you more hair like appearance. 
And if you try and create that Egyptian eyeliner look in tear duct this will make it a lot easier.                                              
Nr900.  So for me to do my own eyeliner I need 2 brushes a straight liner brush to draw a line across the lid and an angled one to make the wing. This is the best brush to draw line across your lid, it is tiny if yo want a small line, and the bristles stay in place and dont start flying away. All the brushes I used to use always were either to thick or the bristles just start to fly everywhere and make a mess.
If I would loose the 920 and 900 brush I would no dought run to The Makeup Bar to get new ones.
I'm not the biggest lip-liner person but their lip-liners I must say are really  good quality and long lasting,they just glide on the lip. If you are a nude lip loving person the lip-liner in Natural is gorgeous.
Price: 13.50 (each)
MUD: Lady bug lipstick,I already have made a separate blog post about this lipstick including photos of  how long it wears and more info , because this is the best long lasting lipstick that you will ever find and it will not dry out your lips. This is the link for the post
The lipstick has blue undertones which will make your teeth look whiter.
This lipstick looks gorgeous on the lips and it will last thought the night the same, the quality of the lipsticks don't change I have 3 so far and will be getting more since they are the longest lasting lipsticks I have found that will not make your lips feel like Sahara desert
The swatch may not look like anything special but it is one of those products that you actually have to see on 
As I said all 3 of the lipsticks I own last for ages, this is gorgeous dark burgundy red color, but instead of it fading away and disappearing from lips after hours it just turns into light red lipstick, either way you are left with a color on your lips, and you end up getting 2 in 1 product. 
Price(lipsticks):14.00 [each]
 Mud cake liner is great not only as eyeliner but if you want to get really sharp and clean eyebrow this is amazing. It has to be activated with water, so I usually spray or dip my brush in water and then go into product.
Price: 15.00
Their eye shadow game is on whole different level, they are pigmented, don't have a lot of fallout , creamy, blend really easy these are my favorite eye shadows to use at the moment, I had these for awhile now  and if I needed to choose one color from this bunch you probably can guess which one it is.  Its called Espresso this is the best warm tone brown medium color you will ever find, when  I started out with eye-shadows I got so many brown and none of the where the right color until i found this one. You need that color in your life.
Same goes for Chamois it is the best transition color alongside Dulce De Leche if you are doing lighter eye look, use Cashemere as your shimmery highlight.
If you like the cranberry/burgundy eye looks you need to get Berrywood cuz it gives the most beautiful tone, use warm brown(Chamois) transition color then go in with Berrywood, after go in with Pomegranate and tiny bit of Espresso it will look gorgeous and highlight the brow-bone with Bone, if you like your eyes to look dark you can darken it up more with black eye shadow (onyx) from Mud.
Bronze is the best color to get if you want to achieve that golden bronze eye look that has been on trend recently.
 These are the colors I have gotten most recently including repurchasing Espresso. I find Mud brown colors to be one of the best ones because they are warm toned and I use them all the time.
If you need a fabulous pink eye shadow, well you guessed Pink Grapefruit is great for that, as well as I finally found the best Purple color that doesn't go muddy and stays thought to color when you start blending it with other eye shadows (Velvetine).
So I am kinda a bit obsessed with orange color not only using it on its own but mixing with brown, if you mix Firebrick with Taupe or Semisweet depending on how dark or bright you want it to be it will give you the most unique warm,orangy brown color I get asked a lot what eye shadow I use when I have that combination on my eyes. 
Price:9.50 (each)
I don't have this mascara at the moment but i have used it so I wanted to mention it for especially makeup artists who are reading this, the tube is soft so you can squeeze the actual mascara out it when if you need to fr spesific look , like I've done before period looks where I literary needed to clump mascara on, so I squeezed it out from the tube on pallet and used disposable wands to apply it. This is a product that I would really suggest having in your kit.
Price: 16.00

The question probably is now, well where can I buy these products!?

You can get them all in The Makeup Bar on 13 Anglesea street, Templebar , Dublin

Makeup Revolution is starting to get noticed more and more in the beauty community, I personally love it because of its affordability and quality. This brand is knows to do dupes for high end products like Hourglass Too Too Faced, Lorac etc. Since I have been using and loving their products for long time I wanted to make small reviews for anyone who isn't familiar with this brand or just wants to get new makeup.


Packaging: I think this is the most useful packaging there can be as you can see exact color on the lid.They do have different lipsticks in different packagings.
Price: €1.39
Color: Left to right--Enchant, Felony,Atomic Serpent,Immoral.
 They dont dry out the lips only thing with these lipsticks they dont last that long and you have to reapply them often if you eat or drink but I like the unusual colors, of course they have normal every day use colors too but since Ive loads of lipsticks I never bother getting them.
 Price: €4.17 they are currently on sale for €2.08 on
Color:What I believe
That is actually one more thing Makeup Revolution does sales and offers  all the time on different products each time.
This was my least fave product even tho the color is gorgeous it didn't look that great on lips after a while and dried them out so I never use this anymore.
 Price: €4.15
This is Makeup Revolution I heart line. I love love love this lip lava and will at one point get all of the colors, it is smooth like butter on the lips and lasts for long time, as well as it has Vitamin E in it, so it moisturizes lips. This is meant to be a dupe for Too Faced melted lipsticks and it sure is as I won the Too Faced one too they are the same in quality.


I am not a blush person but I love these they have sheen to them, amazing for people with dry skin or as a blush topper for glowy look,but be careful not to drop these since they are really soft they brake fast I had 6 of them but shattered one.
Vivid Baked blushes, Left to right-
Loved me the best
One for playing games(fave)
Bang Bang you're dead 
All I think about is you
Hard Day

Color: Hot!
The packaging is small so it doesn't take up a lot of space as well as you can see trough it what color it is. Blush it self is pigmented, blends well stays on all day, is slight powdery but for the price you cant beat it, they have a lot more colors as well.
Color: Sugar and Spice 
This pallet is amazing even tho I don't use blush often I always take it with me when I do other peoples makeup It has various colors that will suit everyone as well as 2 highlighters, color pay of is great ,blends well and stays on all day. This makes a great gift for any makeup lover.
This blush pallet is from a limited edition set that is currently on sale for €8.34 from €16.67
This is link to the set, get it while you ca cuz the quality is amazing and the price is even better since it includes 2 brushes and highlighter pallet s well
 This is the highlighter pallet that it includes, same quality is great.

Brushes are soft , works perfectly fine with powder products.

Color:Hot Spice
Anyone who loves coral and orange blushes this pallet is a must and it has 2 highlighters in it, there isn't anything I could complaint about in terms of quality, another affordable good quality product.
Vivid Baked bronzer, Price: €5.56
Color: Ready to go
I have medium skin color so this shade is too light for me. It has beautiful sheen to it anyone with dry skin should love this as it will add stubble glow to the skin without having to use highlighter.
I ♡ Makeup Blushing Hearts-Summer of Love Bronzer.  Price:€6.93
I don't use this the color for me is off as well as it is quiet shimmery I would use it only all over my body to give a shimmery bronze look.
Color: Golden Sugar 
For all of my girls and boys who are obsessed with highlighters like I am you need this in your life there are no other words it has so many colors and looks gorgeous on the skin as well as I take it everywhere with me since this suits lot of skin completions. Even if you are just starting out with makeup get this pallet and you will be covered for long time,and any situation. This makes amazing gift for any makeup lover.
Price: €6.93
I ♡ Makeup Blushing Hearts-Golden Goddess
I don't like this, it is gorgeous to take pictures off, or look at but when you use it with brush it isn't that pigmented, someone who loves really subtle highlight may like it or use it to dust over body when you are going out or to the beach to give yourself small bit of glow.
Price: On sale from €6.95 to €4.86
Color:Radiant light-Breathe
Formulation of this is really soft, it feels like velvet on the skin, this wont be in your face highlighter but I still like it as it looks gorgeous on the skin for natural look, or if you have dry/dull skin dust this over your face to give it a lift.  They have 2 more colors and pallet that contains all 3 colors so instead getting the rest 2 full sizes I got the pallet.
Highlighter Palette Radiance. This is supposed to be dupe for Hourglass Radiant lighting powders and honestly this time the Dupe is better than the original, you can read all about it here
Vivid Highlighter in Pink Lights.
This highlighter does something to your skin I mean every time I wear this I have received compliments how my skin is looking better or it looks really good, and even tho  have been using this highlighter crazy you can hardly tell it has been used much,this is 100%a must have for me, so I got the pallet with the other 2 colors.

Highlighter Palette Highlight
Price: €11.12


Color: Light Medium
This is called I tint my brow, I didn't have chance to use it because the color is way off and too warm for me,I order most of my stuff online so sometimes the colors don't match
Colors: Frozen and Heavenly
Frozen is more like shimmer when you use it with a brush, I mostly use it as a topper of any other silver eye shadow if I want to make it brighter
Heavenly is a gorgeous highlight shade, I don't really like having a lot of individual shadows so I just got these 2 to try,and they are good quality.
I ♡ Makeup Naked Chocolate. Price:€11.10
This pallet is supped to be a dupe for Too Faced Chocolate pallet as well as Makeup Revolution has another 4 Chocolate pallets that I'm planing on getting , this is by far my fave pallet from them. Colors are gorgeous, pigmented, smooth, and blends really good, there isn't too much fallout either so if you are getting an eye-shadow pallet get this one.
Makeup Revolution Salvation Pallets on Iconic Pro 1(top pic) and Iconic Pro2 (bottom pic).
 Both of these palettes are really really good quality as well, smooth, creamy, pigmented and don't have lot of fallout as well as blends well, they are my 2nd fave in quality wise.They come with a plastic shield that has name of each eye-shadow so if you are doing a look you can say precisely what colors you used.
They are supposed to be a duple for Lorac pro pallets but since I have not tried them I cant tell.
Ultra 32 Shade Eyeshadow Palette FLAWLESS MATTE
Price: €11.12
If you are lacking in matte shadows get this pallet it has some amazing transition shades and all of the colors are matte, this is perfect for beginners. It comes with a plastic shield that has name for ever color.

 Ultra 32 Shade Eyeshadow Palette in Flawless
 Price: €11.12

Ultra 32 Shade Eyeshadow Palette in beyond Flawless
 Price: €11.12

The 32 shadow pallet don't have a lot of product in them but the color selection is great for someone who loves natural eye makeup as well as they have a lot more options of the 32 shadow pallets to chose from the quality of these 3 i have is really good for all of them.
Ultra 32 Shade Eyeshadow Palette in Eye like Angles
 Price: €11.12
If you dont use color in your eye makeup this pallet is really good way how to start doing it  and experimenting and even if you don't end up using it you didn't waste over 30euro for an eye-shadow pallet.
Makeup Revolution Redemption Essential Shimmers
Even tho this is one of the cheapest pallets they have the shimmers are really good for adding a bit of bling to your eye makeup. They also have Essential mattes pallet.
Redemption Iconic1
Redemption Iconic 2

 Redemption Iconic3
All of the 3 pallets above are supposed to be dupes for the Urban Decay Naked,1,2 and 3. I don't use these I got them to see if I will like the color scheme before purchasing the naked pallets and I don't. I never use them Im lucky I tried these before spending over 90 euro on 3 high end eye-shadow pallets.
I see a lot of people(mothers) ask in  makeup groups that their 8-10etc daughter is asking for makeup to play with but they don't want to spend 30 euro on pallet to get ruined well then these are the perfect pallets to get for a child to mess around.
The shimmer shades in these pallets are better quality than the matte ones.

I also had their setting spray but I wasn't a big fan of it even tho a lot of people love it.

Conclusion:  Makeup Revolution as a brand is amazing  with even better prices the quality really is good for the price, if you go on  their website and check out they have ridiculous amount of makeup there 
You can also get Makeup Revolution in Superdrug,Omni or Talaght shopping centers in Dublin(Ireland)
None of the makeup have been sent to me and I did buy it with my own money.
