LOOK WHAT I BOUGHT.
I popped into Superdrug last week, and there it was. Marked £10 in the Christmas Gift section. The Makeup Revolution 144 Ultimate Eyeshadow Collection Palette.
144 shades of pure eyeshadow heaven. ONE HUNDRED AND FORTY-FOUR.
Best purchase ever? Quite possible.
Isn’t it BEAUTIFUL? I’m utterly in love with it.
I’ve used quite a few of the colours already, but I reeeeally wanted to test every single one to see what it would look like out of the pan. So, on Sunday morning, I settled myself down in my bedroom with my camera, a huge cup of tea, the Christmas radio (yep, cracking that one out already!) and a giant pack of cleansing wipes.
And I swatched.
I swatched every. single. one. of these eyeshadows on my (pretty hair hairy) forearm. You’re welcome.
Makeup Revolution are a relatively new company but they’ve been making some serious waves in the beauty industry, and this palette is a perfect example of why.
As you can see, there’s an incredible mix of textures: from matte to glitter and every level of shimmer in between. You’ll also find every shade of every colour you could possibly want, and all of them are perfectly pigmented.
The shadows are super easy to apply, though some are admittedly more chalky than others.
They’re really long-lasting and, as I mentioned, they’re surprisingly pigmented considering the crazy cheap price of it. If there’s one thing Makeup Revolution are doing right, it’s value for money!
You get two double-edged sponge applicators with the palette, which are handy for applying when you’re in a hurry. I tend to swipe my colours on with those and then blend with a blending brush, but a normal eyeshadow brush would work just as well.
