If you’ve read my blog for any amount of time, you’ll know that I’m a colourful queen when it comes to eyeshadow looks. I’d wanted this palette for ages and then my friend Emily got it for me for my birthday (I’m ridiculously grateful if you’re reading). Colourful mattes are an absolute dream in general, but I also thought they’d go really well with my Full Spectrum palette for example, and I was really excited to give it a go! This is also my first time trying a Revolution Pro palette, so keep reading to find out if she’s pigmented!
I’ll start off by talking about the packaging, as per. I don’t have much to say about it really, but I like that you can see the colours straight off, and it feels nice and strong, however one thing I should mention is that it doesn’t have a mirror. I don’t really mind that though because I have lots of palettes with mirrors, so it’s not a massive dealbreaker.
In terms of the colour selection, it blows my mind tbh. It’s got so many varied and bright mattes that I’ve always been crying out for; I think they all go really well together and they’re organised in a way that’s super satisfying and pretty. It makes my eyes pop like a magpie when it sees shiny things, but enough rambling, let’s get onto the most important part…swatches!
So on the first row we have (top to bottom): Saint, Attached, New Day, Daydream, Half Time and Believer. Saint is a really pigmented blinding matte white (always nice to have in a palette). Attached is a really nice warm light brown shade that’s perfect to pop in the crease, and New Day is an absolutely stunning bright yellow shade, and it’s definitely one of my favourites from the palette. I’d been looking for a super bright yellow forever so this is perfect. Daydream is a really pigmented bright sunset orange, Half Time is a really pretty true red colour, and Believer is a gorgeous grungey light green. It looks a bit weird in the swatch but it looks really cute on the eye.
On the second row (top to bottom): Ringleader, Fearless, Shrine, Indication, Crusade and Poison. Ringleader is a ridiculously pigmented red-toned hot pink colour, while Fearless is more of a rosey pink. Shrine is a gorgeous grungeu eggplant purple, Indication is a grungey sky blue colour, and Poison is a cool-toned dark green colour.
Last row: Upperhand, Underdog, Ricochet, Exclusive, Haunted and Cursed. Upperhand is a really nice red-toned brown that’s perfect for darkening up the crease in warm looks. Underdog is your traditional hot pink, and Ricochet is a really gorgeous deep cranberry red colour. Exclusive is a really pretty plum purple kind of colour, Haunted is a cool-toned purple, and Cursed is a super pigmented matte black shade, which is always useful to have in any palette. I was very impressed with its pigmentation because black can be a bit hit and miss when it comes to eyeshadow palettes.
I’ve also included a couple pictures of looks I did with the palette (apologies for the weird quality of the bottom left one, not sure what happened there). As you can see, this palette really encourages you to be creative. The colours all come together to make stunning combinations and I haven’t had this much fun with a palette in a while. For the price, this palette is amazing and I’m really excited to try more Revolution Pro products as I’m really impressed. All the colours are impressively pigmented and then blend really well; I don’t have a bad thing to say about it. If you’re a fan of bright, crazy looks – this is the palette for you!
