This post was originally supposed to be part of this blog post about Makeup Revolution (yeah I have a bit of a problem with Makeup Revolution, I buy a lot of their low price but high quality products). I realised I’ve actually got quite a few of Makeup Revolution eyeshadow palettes so I thought I would showcase these budget beauties in their own post.
The first is Makeup Revolution Iconic Pro 1 Salvation Palette (it’s on sale at £4.90 from Makeup Revolution site, which is an incredible bargain!). This palette contains 16 shades that’s a mix of matte and shimmer. It’s a really versatile palette for creating quick day looks or more intense evening looks. The quality of the eyeshadows are amazing and the packaging feels much more expensive than it’s current price tag. (Also Superdrug have Makeup Revolution Advent Calendars on sale atm).
I use Makeup Revolution Iconic Elements palette practically everyday. I did have the Urban Decay Naked 1 Basics that Makeup Revolution Iconic Elements palette is partially a dupe for (if you include Naked 2 Basics the above palette is a pretty good dupe for it) but it was involved in a terrible accident. Makeup Revolution Iconic Elements palette contains 11 mattes and one shimmer shade. The neutral shades should suit every skin tone and I love it for adding some shading and dimension to my eyes (and also stopping concealer/foundation creasing on my eyelids). The shades of Makeup Revolution Iconic Elements palette are almost identical to the Urban Decay Basic palettes but the textures aren’t similar. Urban Decay are more creamy and feel a bit nicer. Apart from that there really isn’t that much difference between the two.
Makeup Revolution Re-Loaded Iconic Fever Palette (below) is insanely good for…wait…£4! The quality of the mattes and shimmers are amazing. I think they feel more buttery and pigmented in this palette in some of the others. The only thing that would mark Re-loaded Iconic Fever as a budget eyeshadow palette is the packaging; it’s very basic. But don’t let that put you off. This is genuinely a high quality eyeshadow palette and contains some of the most perfect eyeshadow colours for autumn. It has burnished oranges, rich burgundy and everyday mattes. Just buy it! You won’t regret it, I’d happily pay much more for it (the Urban Decay Heat palette that it is a dupe for costs £40!). There are other Re-loaded palettes to buy too.
And finally is the brightest and most fun out of the four, the Soph x Makeup Revolution palette. I think this is a wonderful palette. It contains 14 matte and 10 shimmer that you can make practically any kind of look from. There’s a nice selection of neutrals and much bolder colours. The Soph X palette is the priciest out of the ones I have at £10 but even at that it’s still a bargain. Look at all those pretty colours! This is a palette that begs being played with.
I should also mention the gorgeous palette Jane from British Beauty Blogger created with Makeup Revolution. It’s another amazing palette consisting of 30 shades that will suit everyone. The only reason I’ve not pictured it is because mine is so bashed up now and I really should replace it. I don’t think you’d be let down by this palette and it has some amazing sheen and shimmer shades perfect for the upcoming party season.
