Soph x Makeup Revolution Eyeshadow Palette

I instantly fell in love with this palette when I saw all the pretty shades in it. I think it’s one of the most versatile palettes because it contains both neutral and bright shades so it’s possible to create many different eye looks with it. This palette is so inspiring that I made a “3 looks 1 palette” video with it which is linked at the bottom of this post.

The packaging is very slim so it’s great for traveling and there’s also a giant beautiful mirror in it. The names of the shades are written on a plastic sheet which is included in the palette and I don’t really like it because it’s constantly falling out and it’s not really handy.

There are 24 shades in the palette and 13 of these are matte. I’m really impressed by the color selection because it contains warm and cool tones, everyday and a bit more “fun” shades and there’s also a duo-chromatic eyeshadow included.

Some of the matte shades don’t look very pigmented when swatched but they look beautiful on the eyes. For example the second shade (Pancakes) is almost invisible on my arm but I love mixing it with the white shade and using them under my brow bone.

I’m especially impressed by the shade Fairy Lights which is a beautiful bright highlighting shade. The finish of this shade is not very shimmery actually I could almost call it pearl.

On the other hand some of the other shimmery shades feel quite glittery and have some fallout (Pink Champagne, Grow Old, Copper Coin). Most of them also don’t work that well with brushes. It requires some patience to build up the color so they might be better used with a finger or with a wet brush.

However I’m so in love with the shades that I will continue using them even though they might require some more work to show up on the eyes.

Another thing that I should mention is a powdery feeling of the matte shades. It’s quite know that Makeup Revolution palettes are more on the powdery side and this one is no exception. But I actually like that because I think shadows like these blend easier and I don’t mind tapping off the excess.

Also some of the shades look brighter when used in comparison to how they look in the palette (Mixed Berries, Pumpkin, Strawberry Sweets).

There is also a duo-chromatic shade in the palette called Petrol. I didn’t even notice that until I swatched it because it looks blue in the pan. It’s almost exactly the same as the shade in the Wet ‘n’ Wild Comfort Zone palette so I’m not too excited about having it here as well. I was looking forward to adding a deep blue shade to my collection but anyway this one is very pretty in case you don’t have anything similar yet.

Overall I’m very happy with this palette. The shades are so stunning that I can look past some of the troubles they cause me. But I wouldn’t recommend it to those who are expecting very high quality eyeshadows because you might be disappointed.
