Well hello there my favorite humans!
Yes I have been not so good with the posts. My bad yet again, over 3 weeks (this week and the following 2 weeks) I have 5 different assignments due. So it’s been not so easy to focus on the blog. But I do promise i will be better with the posting.
Some of my favorite things include drugstore makeup and hoarding eye shadow palettes. Put those together and today’s post is a review of a particularly affordable eye shadow palette from a wonderful brand known as makeup revolution.
Here we go!
Shade selection:In regards to shade selection this is another one of those eye shadow palettes that have an urban decay naked 1 palette vibe to it. By that I mean neutrals with 1 or 2 navy blue shades at the end. The shade range itself is pretty versatile, neutral shades excluding the navy blue option. You can make subtle eye shadow looks and pretty intense eye looks with this.
Pigmentation:Pigmentation is quite awesome for the price. I wouldn’t say its mind blowing and a few of the shades are better applied to the lid with you finger but it doesn’t make applying your eye shadow a difficult task.
Is there any fall out?: Minimal, nothing to cause alarm. You may notice it only slightly with the darker shades but that is something you can sweep off your face with a brush.
Do they blend well?: Quite well! They aren’t chalky or formulated in a way wherein you get an arm cramp trying to blend it out yet they aren’t so blendable you accidentally blend the eye shadow away.
Finish of the shades: There are a couple of matte shades in this palette. Shade 1, 3 and 5 from the left of the palette are matte, the rest are shimmer. Unfortunately there are no dark brown matte shades.
The makeup revolution site
which ships internationally and I believe within the UK you can find this brand in store.
Price: $8.47 AUD
Wearability: You can create both simple eye shadow looks and intense ones from this palette and being that they are all neutral the palette is definitely wearable to a large degree.
Packaging: Standard packaging. It does come with one of those cheap eye shadow sponge applicators one would use as a child. You can disregard that but the packaging has a clear lid so you can see the shades inside the palette.
Who would like this? Fans of drugstore eye shadow palettes / neutral shade lovers / those who like both shimmery and matte eye shadows
Who wouldn’t like this? Those who only like crazy pigmentation, ones who like super natural eye shadow palettes / those who are looking for an enormously dramatic eye shadow palette / those who want a large amount of matte shades in the eye shadow palette
Overall thoughts:This is a great eye shadow palette! It’s versatile, with pretty shades, super affordable with awesome pigmentation. I don’t have any complaints about this one, it’s a great palette.
Would I repurchase this?: Though I have a lot of eye shadow palettes, like a ridiculous amount I would repurchase it because I find it useful for a lot of eye shadow looks.
