Today, I am going to share with you all a blush palette that I have been reaching out to quite often and has become my current favorite travel companion as well. Makeup Revoltion London is a fairly new brand on the international beauty scene that has gained much popularity rather quickly owing to their offering of quality makeup products at pocket friendly prices. I have gone berserk with collecting eyeshadow palettes from them. Some time back I also decided to check out one of their blush palettes, the Freedom Makeup London Pro Blush Palette Pink and Baked. I have a newfound fondness for pink and plum toned blushes and hence ended up gdetting this particular palette. There are 2 other shades available in the Pro Blush palette range, Bronze and Baked, and Peach and Baked , just in case you want to check out.

The blush palette comes in a light plastic casing with a full sized mirror inside. It is lightweight, but definitely not flimsy. The palette houses 6 blushes and 2 marbelized highlighting powders.
The Freedom Makeup London Pro Blush Palette Pink and Baked is a pink dominated blush palette with a varied variety of pink blushes and pink toned highlighting powders. The 6 blushes range from a light baby doll pink to a blush pink and a dirty rose pink, to a a cool plum blush with a peach toned blush thrown in there for some variety. There are 2 highlighting powders, one being a shimmery pink and the second one being a frosty icy pink kind of color.
Texture and Pigmentation :
Barring the middle shade in the first column and the topmost shade in the last column, all the powders are high on pigmentation and have true to pan color payoff. If you are the kinds who loves a bold highlight, then the highlighting shades would impress you a lot. Also, I have tried using the highlight shades on a wet brush and they give such amazing results. However, there are some issues that I would like to point out about this palette. First, the powders seem to be loosely pressed so when you swirl your brush over it, a lot of product comes off loose, so yes, there is definitely some product wastage because of how it is packed in the palette. Second, I do have an issue with the blending ability of the darkest berry-plum shade and the peach coloured shade. The brush picks up a lot of product if you aren’t careful enough and application can get a little patchy. That being said, I think application is the best when the color is built up layer by layer and starting off with the tiniest amount possible. Third, the highlighters are insanely pigmented. You have to be very very cautious when you apply them or you may end up looking like a disco ball.
When worn on a well done base, the blushes easily last for 7-8 hours which in my opinion is really incredible considering their price.
Overall, the Freedom Makeup London Pro Blush Palette Pink and Baked is a great blush palette to travel with or have in your vanity. There are 6 matte powder blushes that not only would match a lot of makeup looks, but also 2 beautiful highlight powders that can add a boost of festive glow in a jiffy. Since the powders are high on pigment, it is easy to go overboard so application must be careful and precise. These really last for long hours on the skin and looking at the price vs quality and quanity, there isn’t much to complain about. f you are looking for a pocket friendly blush palette, you must give this one a chance!
