Review: Fortune Favours the Brave with Makeup Revolution

If you haven’t already heard (and if you haven’t, where have you been?!) Makeup Revolution and British Beauty Blogger (Jane) have collaborated to bring a stunning eyeshadow palette called Fortune Favours the Brave. This is all pretty exciting because it’s MUR’s first blogger collaboration.

Fortune Favours the Brave
Available online, launches in Superdrug 6/4

“Thirty shades of matte, glimmer and sheen combine in one golden palette for an every which-way smoky eye. From the lightest of brightening base colours to the darkest, most daring shades of navy, black and green and everything in between, Fortune is the most versatile, every-age, every-tone palette yet.” – Makeup Revolution’s website.

First up, can we talk about that packaging?


I mean…

The palette comes in a matte gold box, with the palette’s emblem raised in the cardboard. The palette itself is a much more solid version of the usual plastic, and is matte gold, which makes a stark contrast against the shine of the emblem. I am definitely enjoying the change from MUR’s usual black and rose gold colour scheme (even though I do love that scheme!) plus I will definitely be able to pick this one out from the rest of my collection. Of course, I should mention, this, like many of their palette’s, does have a full sized mirror in the lid.

So, swatches?


L-R; Glimmer, Buffer, Peachy, Hope, Fortune, Skylight, Transformer, Midnight Rainbow.


L-R; Ice Cloud, Golden Coins, Cashmere, Tip Top, Yes Please, Green Machine, Smoothie.


L-R; Caffeine Fix, Latte, Pink Diamond, Creme, Drama Queen, Lonely Planet, Blacqua.


L-R; Soft, New World, Favour, Sunset Hour, Super Gold, Winning, Brave, The Revolution.

I normally talk about each shadow individually, but I don’t feel I have to with this palette. The khaki’s surprised me with their beauty, the marbled colours are an absolute dream, and Blacqua is the most pigmented and buttery matte black I’ve ever swatched.

I haven’t used the brush that comes with the palette yet, so I can’t comment on it, but it definitely looks interesting. I reckon the blending end will be great for a cut crease, since it is quite small.

So, have you managed to get your hands on Fortune Favours the Brave yet, or are you patiently waiting for the official launch? Come chat in the comments!

Much Love,
