Long time no see! Unfortunately, as I am now on a full-time placement, I’m going to find it hard to blog a lot but today I had something I had to write about. I have been a fan of @Sophdoesnails on youtube for a good few years and was pretty excited when she announced she was releasing makeup items with MakeupRevolution and despite my attempts at saving money (I mean I already have 7 other Makeup Revolution palettes, I didn’t need it, right?), I ended up giving into temptation and buying it. At the reasonable price of £10 and easily accessible in larger Superdrug stores, I don’t feel Soph or the Revolution team has played on the collab too much by making it inaccessible and pricey unlike other recent collab attempts *ahem* Maybelline X Gigi Hadid.
What I like most about the palette is that it is true to Soph’s channel, a lot of other YouTubers who bring out merch tend to bring out generic t-shirts (no offence to anybody who enjoys that!) but knowing her love for eyeshadows and particularly highlighter, it made sense for these to be the products she chose. I admittedly didn’t choose to buy the highlighter palette as I found it so similar to my Sleek Solstice palette I didn’t need it. The palette itself oozes value with 24 shades, a huge mirror and the aesthetically pleasing embossed rose gold logo.
Onto the palette, I love the mix of colours, both matte and shimmer, in the palette. For £10 I feel you get the ability to create so many different looks rather than them all being different shades of brown. Obviously, some colours are more wearable everyday colours (my faves including Cuppa Tea, Peaches and Pumpkin) whilst others are more outlandish such as Mixed Berries and Petrol). I’ve always found makeup revolution palettes to be really good quality and this one is no different, the colours pack a punch and blend so easily. Below are images of the shades with flash (top) and without (bottom).
Not wanting to sound overly positive I tried to think of a negative to this palette and the only thing I could come up with was that I didn’t find it in my local smaller stores and I am aware they did sell out from the tambeauty.co.uktambeauty.co.uk (the only other place it can be purchased) website for a short while but overall, it’s such a good palette for the price I paid and I think Soph should be very proud of what she has achieved.
Until next time!
P.S this is my first blog post using my new camera. Hope the pictures have improved.
