As soon as I saw this palette on BritBeautyBlogs (Jane) Instagram, I had to have it. It’s a collaboration between Makeup Revolution and herself and my goodness is it beautiful! It’s been out for a little while now, about 3/4 weeks but I didn’t want to pay delivery on just this one item so was waiting for it to be in my local Superdrug. I popped in this weekend and luckily they had it! It was £10 and they also currently have a 3 or 2 but didn’t pick up anything else as I wasn’t really feeling anything! This palette has such a great mix of colours, neutrals, purples and greens, it’ll definitely suit everyone.
Now lets get to the swatches.
I have to say I’m a little disappointed with the palette. There are some amazing colours with great pigmentation but I don’t feel like this palette is Makeup Revolutions usual quality. I love most of the matte shades in this palette but as for the shimmers, I don’t know. Usually Makeup Revolution have metallic, almost foiled shadows with amazing pigmentation and these are just pure shimmer and glitter. I do have to say that with most of the shimmers the pigmentation is good but they’ve definitely produced better. If you take a look, on the 2nd row, the last shade I terrible. Almost no pigmentation there and it’s meant to be a dark green matte shadow. I don’t know if I got a bad shadow there but nah, not impressed.
Now, I have only swatched this palette, I haven’t applied it to my eyes so my opinion may change but as it goes right now, I’m really disappointed. The quality just isn’t the same in my personal opinion and I hate saying it cause you all know how much I love Makeup Revolution.
Has anyone else tried this palette yet, I really would love to know your opinion because, from what I’ve seen, there’s been nothing but good reviews and feedback. Am I the only one? Please do let me know!
Thank you for reading!
