I first came across Makeup Revolution a couple of years ago. It was already a big brand in many countries, however it was still extremely difficult to get your hands on a Makeup Revolution palette. I was aching to try it since I’ve heard such amazing things about it. Eventually I got my hands on a blush and highlight palette; and that was love at first sight!
I was over the moon when I heard that Makeup Revolution was coming to SA although I knew there wouldn’t be a huge variety, I was extremely excited.I knew that my Clicks wouldn’t be stocking it so being the curious being that I am, when I went to Jo’burg I made sure that I went to Clicks to get my hands on some Makeup Revolution and one of the things that I picked up was their Re-loaded eye shadow palette in Iconic Vitality.
The eye shadow palette was R129,95. Like, how cheap is that? I was stoked! I always love a good deal. The palette is a rectangular shape and has 15 different colors of eyes shadow. 15 Colors for R129,95, I am amazed! Makeup is extremely expensive, so getting an eye shadow palette that is of a reputable brand at that price is really something. Getting back to the palette; the design is sleek, quite simple and compatible if you want to travel with it. I actually like the simplicity, as some brands are too over the top and the packaging comes off as tacky.
Most of the shades on the palette are matte and there are a few shimmers. Each shadow is extremely pigmented and the shimmers are extremely pretty. The eye shadow is extremely easy to wear, the colors are super pigmented and goes extremely well with my olive skin tone, there is not a lot of fall out when applying and they are easy to blend. When removing the eye shadow, all the color comes off your lid and literally nothing gets left behind which I absolutely love.
My verdict: I will definitely be getting my hands on more palettes from Makeup Revolution as it doesn’t disappoint. The colors, the pigments, the versatility of the palette plus the price is a total catch and you should definitely try it.
