As you guys saw in my haul a few days ago, I recently made a small Makeup Revolution purchase. Being super excited, I decided to write a review on this gorgeous little palette right here.
As always, starting off with the packaging, I love it! I loved the little carton paper it came in, too, which was a reflective gold that you guys can see right over here.
When you remove the gold cartboard packaging, you get a super sleek and quite highly shiny, black palette with the golden Makeup Revolution font right on there and a small description of the palette and it’s contents.
I honestly keep having a lot of trouble when opening this palette- it just won’t open, even when trying to pull the top from the bottom really hard. Maybe it is a small flaw from a bad batch in my palette, but it really sucks because it takes quite some time to open and it breaks my nails as well when trying to do so.
On the inside, there is a small film paper with the names on there, a big mirror (!!) and of course, as promised, 32 shades of neutrals.
First thing I noticed when checking out the names, was the fact that the colour ‘Warm’ is in there twice, but with a different colour. Again, maybe from a bad batch, a minor flaw.
There ain’t a single one that isn’t amazingly soft, however, so that is definitely a plus. I also like how they kept on picking one shade and then every pan you go down the palette, that same shade becomes darker. I like it, but I also kind of feel like they shades are sometimes too simillar that way. That is why I love bright palettes so much- there’s always a ton of different colours to choose from. I’m also definitely loving the big mirror a lot! It’s great and it is still big despite the palette being quite small. As for the actual pans, they were a lot smaller than expected, but damn these shades are sooofffftttt! They’re amazing, I’ve never felt a powder so soft before, not even in my Smashbox palette. I love it so much.
There are some amazing highlighters and crease / transition colours in here, too, as well as pinks, browns, taupes, greys and blacks.
Overall, I feel like this is an amazing palette and definitely a drugstore must-have in case you’re really into the neutral department or are looking to start out doing makeup and not wanting to go out too heavy (yet). The shades are quite similar, I’m not going to lie, but there is still a nice selection of neutrals and as there is still a big variety in highlighters, crease colours, transition colours and lid shades, I am still a big fan and definitely recommend going out and buying it right now! Makeup Revolution has definitely won me over. How about you?
