- About Eyeshadow Palette
Makeup Revolution decided to do collaboration with Youtuber sophdoesnails. I had some time to test out eyeshadow palette, which has some gorgeous warm colors in it. In this collaboration is also highlighter palette which is just as gorgeous and seems very pigmented, I know, because I have swatched it in the store already.


Packaging

I have to say the design is right up my alley, dare I say something that I would do, if I ever had a chance to collaborate with a makeup company. Paper box has peach and gold design as well as the actual plastic packaging. I adore both of these shades as you might have already noticed by my blog design. It's well made and seems sturdy. Inside is also a huge mirror which is very useful and great to travel with.

In it is 24 x 1.1 grams of product, so 26.4 grams of product in total and the price is 14.99€. You can get it on Ličila.si, in DM or Tuš Drogerija. You can also get it from Revolution Beauty for 11.99€.




Colors

The palette also has variety of colors that I would probably choose for myself. There is mix of 24mattes and shimmers, some nudes, mostly warm toned and some pops of color like purple, green and blue. This palette has everything that I would want in one palette, even a matte black. If you're a warm toned lover, you would love it. You can create everything from very nude and natural looks to something more colorful and bold.

My absolute favorite shades are all the pops of colors. Mixed Berries is one of my new favorite purples, because it's bright enough, looks so metallic, is very creamy and just warm enough. Pine Tree is another one of those super creamy and pigmented shades. I just love this golden olive tone. Petrol is the most unique shade in this palette with a warm purple base and petrol blue sheen. It's also very pigmented and looks so dimensional.

I also really like Pancakes which is almost my skin tone and perfect transition shade and Cuppa Tea which is the most perfect yellow toned mustard crease shade. Sparks Fly is another favorite because of the super creamy formula and that true gold shade.

Formula

Formula is in general on the wet side. Mattes feel wet to the touch and most shimmery colors seem even wetter. Some feels so wet that they apply almost like a cream.

Pigmentation is good. I find that lighter colors are sheerer as well as some mattes. Most shimmery shades have good pigmentation and some even amazing with just one swipe.

Performance

Some of the darker matte shades can be harder to blend and you have to build them up sometimes to get the intensity that you want. I also find shimmery shades hard to apply with a brush. They are so creamy that it's best, if you just apply them with a finger.

Eyeshadows have some kick-up as well as some fall out, so maybe do your eye makeup first, if you're using darker shades.

In general these stay well on the lids, although I notice the color fading through the day, but nothing too concerning. They don't crease, if you use an eyeshadow primer.

Now as always, lets go onto some of my makeup looks. I made a point to use all of the shades in the palette in some makeup look, so you get to see them in action.

I have to say this has to be my favorite Makeup Revolution palette, because I just adore design and colors in it. It's exactly the type of colors that I love to use the most. Pigmentation is good, but still not as good as for example Colourpop eyeshadows. Once you get used to that amazing pigment and blend, you just get spoiled, like I did. Nonetheless, it's a very good formula for a drugstore palette and most of these shades perform well. Some shimmery shades are super creamy and have just a-mazing pigmentation, while some darker mattes need more building up. In general, I like it and the color range is just amazing for one palette, if you want a bit of everything in those warm tones.
