Makeup Revolutions Swatches Part 1: Mermaids Forever Palette, Bronzers and Highlighters

Hey Everyone! So as promised, today's post will feature swatches of the products I talked about in my video earlier this week. However because their are SO MANY shadows in these palettes I am featuring the Mermaids Forever Palette, the Vivid Baked Highlighter in Golden Lights, the Vivid Baked Bronzer in Rock on World and the Summer of Love Bronzer in Love Hot Summer in today's post and the other items (The Mermaids vs. Unicorns Palette, Pure Pigment and Aqua Seal and the Flawless Matte Palette) will be in my next post.

First up, the Mermaids Forever Palette.

I have included the names of all the shadows in this photograph so that it's as easy as possible to match up the shades in the palette with the swatches below.

Okay so that's the whole of Mermaids Forever swatched close-up for you.

A few notes on this palette:
  • The really lightest two shades in particular, especially Forever don't show up that well at all.
  • All of these shadows have been swatched heavily on top of a primer to get as much colour payoff as possible without applying them wet.
  • A couple of these shades are appalling when used dry - try them wet and they really pop
  • The quality of these shades varies a lot from one to the next. A few of them takes tonnes of building up, most take a fair amount of building, a few of them one stroke and BAM - tonnes of colour so experiment.
  • USE A PRIMER (I can't stress enough how important that is with this palette)
  • My favourites: Enchant, Ariel, Pink Sea, Waves, Fishtail, Turtle, Treasure, Prince
Okay! Last but not least we have a swatch of the bronzers and highlighters from the video:

Swatched, semi heavily so you can see the colours but with nothing underneath this time. 
the Summer of Love Bronzer in Love Hot summer, the Vivid Baked Bronzer in Rock on World and the Vivid Baked Highlighter in Golden Lights. These are all nice but powerful! So use a careful hand. I'm keen to try their pink highlighter too, and their new strobe cream.

That's it for today, come back next week for part 2!
