Fortune Favours The Brave Palette


Blogging is a funny old thing. Those of us that have been around for a while have seen it go from a keyboard hobby to fully grown businesses for the lucky few. I don't think anyone would have predicted in the early days that bloggers would be writing books, making films, appearing on TV and most exciting for me, collaborating with brands on events, launches and products. Sam and Nic Chapman aka Pixiwoo are behind the biggest-selling brush brand in the world, Real Techniques. Wayne Goss has his own beautiful high-end brushes available through Beautylish. One of the longest standing bloggers in the UK is Jane Cunningham from British Beauty Blogger. 
Back in March, Jane and Makeup Revolution quietly released a palette called Fortune Favours the Brave. A 30-pan eyeshadow palette covering everything from shimmers to mattes to mixed shades suitable for all ages, skin colours and tones. The palette's launch and subsequent huge success was driven exclusively by Jane's readership and the online community, receiving no 'press' at all (no surprises there).

Jane's little piece of the internet has since had three sellout runs and this month launched in Ulta in the US.


The joy of blogging is that anyone can do it. It's accessible to everyone. What some people don't always realise and recognise is the amount of hard slog that goes into making it as a successful blogger. It's hours and hours and days and weeks and months and years of persistent and consistent effort. The success of Jane's palette is a success for all of us and the best example of hard work paying off.

It's also a bloody good palette for a ridiculously good price of £9.99/$15.00.

I've yet to see one instore as it is always sold out, but it is available online here:
UK - Superdrug.com
USA - Ulta.com

Congratulations BBB.

  2. I certainly wasn't aware of this palette, it is gorgeous and I can already spot some very unique shades: latte and smoothie! I couldn't agree more about the 'persistent and consistent effort'!

  6. It's a great palette - I bought 3 (1 for me, 2 for friends) so I am probably the reason why none of you all have been able to get it! Although I made the mistake of buying MURs eye primer at the same time, which is total rubbish. The colours and pigmentation are fantastic and deserving of a decent primer.

  7. I'm not usually a big palette fan but I've been loving this one. The colours are all so wearable and the pigmentation and blend-ability feels like a much more high-end product. Really impressive.

  9. Initially I hesitated because I thought a number of the colors were too warm for my skin tone, BUT it was so reasonable and SO beautiful that I lost all my willpower (oh wait, I have none.) and got it. Love it. Works great on me. Genius!

  11. I've blogged since 2005, starting as a way to keep in touch with family the first time we moved overseas. I no longer blog at that address but I started another last year and most recently started talking about fashion. It takes a few hours to get photographs, write content and provide links to both what I'm wearing and (since this is part of the reason I started this blog), linking to an ethically and socially made item. It's not a 15 minute and done kind of thing. You really do have to spend quite a bit of time on it.

  16. Jane is ace and so is the palette! Such a bargain too! I've been loving it these past few months (I was literally stalking the manager of my local Superdrug every lunchtime until it turned up in store lol)
    I think you need a long standing experience, whether as make-up artists like the Chapmans sisters, a Therapist such as you, or a blogger like Jane to put out a product that can stand on its own 2 feet. As much as the beauty industry wants to keep everything young, fresh & wrinkle-free, whenever I've seen products from other, much younger bloggers whose fame was only a couple of years old, I've never been that impressed and always wondered how much of their input is in the product, or did they just slap their name on it. Caroline, Jane, Nic & Sam = thumbs up all round!:)
