The other day while poking around the new Ulta Beauty near my vacation home, I came across a fairly big section of makeup I didn't recognize called Makeup Revolution. It's probably something that people here in America or Europe would know (it's a British company), but it's not really familiar to me, being from Canada. I did a quick Google search and skimmed through a bunch of good reviews, so I decided to pick up a palette to try out. I ended up leaving with the Revolution Re-Loaded Palette in Iconic Fever, and I thought I'd do a little review of my thoughts on it!
I really like this product. It's similar to typical drugstore palettes, like NYX or L'Oreal, but arguably at a better price (more on that later). The palette comes with 15 eyeshadows, with 10 matte and 5 shimmer shades in warm, burnt tones - sort of reminiscent of the Tartlette Toasted and the Urban Decay Naked Heat palettes. I've been really big on orange and red shades, ever since I started using the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette last year, and this was right up my alley.
The shades are actually pretty good quality, especially with taking the price into consideration. The matte neutrals are quite blendable and are very pigmented, but I should mention that the shimmer shades are a bit tricky - they don't show up as nicely with just a brush, you may need to use your finger or a dampened brush to get the shades to really pop. Though, I really can't complain much. The shadows look great on and don't fade or crease quickly either.
Makeup Revolution is inexpensive af. That I learned pretty quickly, as this palette only set me back $7 usd ($9.21 cad)!! Honestly, that made me a bit skeptical. Seven bucks for 15 shades? Something had to be a bit shady there. But after giving the palette a try, I can honestly say that seven bucks is more than generous for the product. The quality of the shadows are really good and probably worth much more than seven dollars. So, frankly, this was a steal.
This is a great drugstore palette and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a warm neutrals palette on the cheaper side. It's a mostly hassle-free palette (aside from the shimmers but even then, not that big of a problem) and the shadows look amazing on. I think this would be a great dupe for the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette. I'm definitely going to buy from Makeup Revolution again in the future!!
