I was not a palette girl. I never liked the idea of somebody customizing my Makeup palette as I am bit choosy in what I wear. I always preferred customizing my Makeup Palettes at MAC and Inglot with little assistance. This was the fact about me till I found this palette by Makeup Revolution London i.e Hot Spice Blush Palette.
I am into peach and peachy blush sisters over pinky cousins when it comes to my everyday use blushers. The moment I saw the beautiful peach blush pans in rows in single stylish case, I purchased this palette ( Haul here). I have just done one Look for the purpose of demonstration here in this post but you will be seeing more of this palette in subsequent FOTDs!! Here is

MakeUp Revolution Ultra Blush Palette Hot Spice Review
The Black plastic palette arrived to me in a Matte finish Black cardboard box with Label in Rose Gold. The back of the cardboard Box has the 8 circles depicting the shades of the blushers inside. The shades here are not exact but they are explicit enough to hint the shades inside. The plastic palette is sturdy and bears the name of the palette on its base. It has the size of my android Samsung Note 2. (The idea of mentioning the size here is to give you an idea of the size of mirror inside)
The Black case Flips open with a good quality mirror on one side and 8 blush pans fitted snuggly in base side. The 8 blushers are set in two rows with 4 blushers each. Actually, there are 6 blushes, 1 highlighters and 1 terracotta blush cum highlighter. The six blushers have 3 shimmer and 3 matte finish blushers.
I would have loved if The Brand would have named these blushes. I have never done this kind of naming before but here for my extreme love for this palette I have named these beautiful babies.
Cinnamon: Earthy Peach in color with hint of golden shimmer which is fine milled. It has good pigmentation is perfect for evening wear.
Nutmeg: True peach in color with Matte finish. Great for Day wear and looks very natural on my NC 41 complexion.
Chipotle: It is Pinkish Peach with Golden shimmer. It reminds me of Bourjois Lilas D’or somehow.
Moon: I labeled it moon because it looks cool toned especially when compared to the peach blushes. I initially though it will be similar to Makeup revolution vivid pink lights highlighter( will be reviewing soon). But on use I found that It gives duochromatic iridescence much similar to my Bobbi brown shimmer compact in rose. Unlike many highlighters,It does not accentuate appearance of pores on my skin.
Saffron: This is the brightest shade in the palette. It looks orange in pan but blend to give deep peach flush. It has golden shimmer which is slightly more palpable in this blush when compared to other shimmer blushes in palette. But shimmer is not chunky in any case. I will love to wear this Blush with heavy smoky eyes.
Mace: is a slight deeper version of nutmeg. Again very natural on me and gives beautiful Matte finish.
Cajun: is a lighter version of Chipotle sans shimmer. I loved this soft peach-ish pink blush for every day use.
Mars: I named it Mars on lines of Moon Highlighter(another astronomical name). It actually looks like surface of Mars.. It gives gorgeous peachy sheen without highlighting my skin pores. Honestly It is more in congruence with theme of the palette when compared with the another highlighter in palette.
Pigmentation of all the blushes is decent to superb. They blend well without staining the point of first contact. I love layering these to achieve more natural effect. For the good pigmentation, I will suggest using them light handed initially and then build up more color if desired.
I loved the Blush pan size both for the price and swirling my blush brush. I saw some powder in pan while using shimmer blushes. Again shimmer ones tend to accentuate appearance of pores also. They stay on my face for 6-8 hour without getting patchy and with minimal fading.
PRICE: 1350 INR ( I bought it from Nykaa on discount for 1080 INR.)
VANILLA RATINGS 9/10
Makeup Revolution Ultra Blush Palette in Hot Spice is the first ever Blush palette I have tried. I loved using it to the core and was surprised by the quality /quantity of the product for the price. All the shades are beautiful variants of peach family. I loved the two highlighters in palette. Trust me I felt like a professional while layering these blushers on my cheeks. The assembly of Blushes is tastefully chosen with different finishes so I can see myself using his for day to night transformation makeup too.But I just wish that Makeup Revolution should name these gorgeous beauties. Also the brand is available just online!!
You may love to know that Earlier this palette was launched as a Contour palette. But the shades are so chosen that they hardly manage to give visible contour so better they have renamed it as just a Blush Palette. So be careful if you are looking for a contour palette this may not be your cup of tea. Even Nykaa is still showing it up as Contour and Blush Palette.
