Makeup Revolution Pressed Glitter Palette Hot Pursuit Review, Swatches: Hi guys. So recently I had my vacations and I spent a lot of time and money on new interesting make-up products. I came across these pressed glitter palettes from makeup revolution which caught my eye instantaneously at the Anez Anzare store. I have a thing for glitter like most of you girls out there. There’s something about the sparkle that gives out celebratory vibes and makes you want to don it, but glitter is also extremely pesky to get rid of and seems to cling on to our skin forever.to add to it are the difficulties of making it stay in place and prevent the fallout.
The sales person at Anez ansare knows me too well and she suggested I try pressed glitter for a change instead of the loose glitters I try using each time and fail desperately. No amount of glitter glue makes them want to stay on my eyelids owing to their oily nature, so pressed glitter seemed like a good idea to me. The palettes were available in three variants: Midas touch, abracadabra and hot pursuit.
I got myself two of them-hot pursuit and Midas touch. Hot pursuit is a vibrant palette filled with reds oranges and pinks while Midas touch is regal with golden, rich green and coppery tones and abracadabra is a fun palette with bright colours like blue, lime green and purple.
I shall be doing a review on ‘hot pursuit’ and I’ll be giving you guys all the details about the product quality and a few tips and tricks I learnt from experience.

In Detail Makeup Revolution Pressed Glitter Palette Hot Pursuit Review, Swatches and My Experience
The hot red glittery packaging is too good to be true for people like me who adore anything glittery. Its classy, compact and beautiful all at the same time.it has a magnetic enclosure and shuts tight. Each palette has nine small sized pans.as soon as I opened the palette two pans fell out and I was horrified. however, the product didn’t get damaged thanks to its creamy consistency and saved me from a heart break. I went back to the store to report this and they said it’s a common problem associated with these palettes and stuck them back for me with glitter glue. The palette has a large mirror which is quite nice as most palette provide either no mirror or a tiny one. There is no applicator along with it.
The palette has the following colours:
- Inflamed: this is a special shade.its a duochrome shade which is pink with green shift. this is an extremely unique and beautiful shade and looks good when paired with coral toned eyeshadows
- Fierce: a pale mauve pink shade which is subtle and extremely beautiful.
- Burning desire: a classic pink shade which is just the right amount of ‘loud’
- Ignite: bright gold shade which would look the best on medium and tan warm skin tones
- Passion: burnt orange shade
- Fever: hot pink shade which is cool toned
- Fire: classic red shade
- Sparks: deep purple
- Torridity: pinkish purple shade with golden glitter in between. It’s a beautiful shade as it’s a mix of pink and purple with gold shimmers in between.
I have included swatches both in daylight and room lighting.
The colours are extremely eye catching and, and are perfect for the festive season. These shades are suitable for almost all skin tones beautifully. Especially Indian skin tones.as we are mostly warm toned these colours will complement us well.
Now let’s see how they fared on me. they swatched decently but some shades were a bit patchy and almost of them transferred. Now let’s be real. Glitter is messy but on the bright side there is much less mess compared to lose glitter. I quite like the formula which isn’t that creamy but is quite pigmented. I had picked up a few wet n wild pressed glitters and compared to them these were heaven. The wet n wild ones, though cheaper, were greasy and oily and there was very less pigment. On application I ended up having a Vaseline sort of substance with a few glitter particles scattered on my eyelid and they were an epic fail for me.
The PAC pressed glitters impressed me more as they glided on much more smoothly. The advantage this palette has over the PAC ones is the fact that the PAC ones are available as singles and each one costs around 500 rupees whereas this palette has nine shades and costs 1550. Of course the PAC shadows have much more quantity than one pan of glitter in this palette. But. unless you’re planning use glitter as part of your daily office and college makeup, this palette is going to last a lifetime. 😉
I tried applying this on my eyelid with different types of eyeshadow brushes. The fluffy ones, the cream shadow ones and even silicon brushes. None of them even remotely got the job done. Finally, I used an eyeliner brush from faces and it worked. The trick is to take a densely packed flat brush and pat it onto the eyelid in small portions. Sturdy lip brushes can also be used. The best method to apply these are your fingers. Pressed glitters and pigments always perform the best when you use fingers. The good thing is that the colours appear the same on your eyes compared to the swatches. Some eyeshadows swatch well but looks different on the eye and it’s so disappointing when that happens.
The sales person told me that no glitter glue is required to make these works and I didn’t get one then. But trust me they perform so much better when you have a glitter glue base. I used the PAC one. You can also try using the Nyx glitter primer which is equally good.
There are two ways to use these pressed glitters.
Either you can use them alone and line your eyes to get a simple festive look. Be sure to prime your eyelids well or apply glitter glue. A good alternative to glitter glue is concealer. apply a compact powder or translucent powder on the crease and browbone area.
This ensures that the product does not crease and spread much. Spritzing makeup setting spray increases its longevity.
Alternatively, you can use them along with other cream and powder eyeshadows to create beautiful vibrant looks. Personally, I love to do cut creases with them. I cut the crease with glitter glue instead of concealer (like I normally do) and apply them in the centre of my eyelid, or you can opt for an ombre look and make a transition with the glitter from darkest to lightest shade.
I loved all the colours and would have definitely recommended it if not for the fallouts and poor stay time.
I have included images of three of the looks I did using this palette. 🙂 I haven’t used glitter glue in any of them and used a concealer so that you guys can relate to it better.
These did not last for more than 5-6 hours on me despite using primer, glitter glue and setting spray.
They photographed beautifully but started falling off after three hours. I had to touch up with concealer throughout the day. Coming to the removal part, they are an absolute pain to take off like all glitters. I had to use micellar water, coconut oil and wash my face twice so that it was completely glitter free.

Cons of Makeup Revolution Pressed Glitter Palette Hot Pursuit
- Some shades are patchy and it’s hard to get an even application
- Though they are pressed glitters they need a glitter glue or concealer base just like loose glitters
- Do not last beyond 6 hours even if you take all measures possible to make it last.
- It is not available easily. I have noticed that it is always out of stock online.
- The pans fell out which is a common thing with these palettes as the sales person told me.its clearly something the brand must look into. I am scared to travel with this owing to its flimsy nature. The pans fall out each time I drop it.
- Be careful while applying glitters. they can get into your eye and cause problems, especially for contact lens wearers (I’m one of them)
- Either do your foundation after the eyemakeup ,or if you are applying it before it,bake the under eye area well and then do the eye makeup so you can dust it off after it’s done and the fallout with go along with it.glitters have a lot of fall out compared to normal shadows and hence you wouldn’t want to walk around with glitter all over your face
- Glue glitter glue or concealer as a base so that the glitter will have something to stick on to. people with oily eyelids please use an eye primer too if you’re planning to wear the makeup for long hours.
- Do not go overboard with the glitter.it will fall off during the course of the day.
- Use fingers or a flat lip liner or eye liner brush. They give the best effect and work for almost all of the shades.
