I have succumbed to the REVOLUTION.
That’s right, after seeing the hype build over many months for the latest bargain beauty brand Makeup Revolution, I’ve made some purchases. This latest haul includes the #SELFIE palette, which contains a series of super pigmented shades, along with a bonus free eye primer, all for the small price of £4.99
The packaging for this palette is unlike anything that I have ever seen, the lid of the palette is a flashing holographic that changes between purple and black backgrounds! Sure, this is a gimmick but it really makes it distinctive from the offset.
Additionally, for a 10-shade palette this is one of the smallest that I own, which makes it really useful to slip into my handbag – this is one that I would carry with me too, as it goes from light to dark shades, allowing for an easy transition from day to night.
It has a large full-length palette mirror, which is always appreciated, I’d rather not waste that space! As standard, it includes an eyeshadow applicator with a useful space for your favoured application tool when travelling.
The names of the shadows are all social media inspired (from left to right) –

All of the eyeshadows are easy to apply with the colours blending nicely to create a range of different looks. The shades, as you can see from the swatches above, are highly pigmented with an excellent colour pay off from the first sweep!
The free primer is a sparkly champagne colour, which is quite light on the lid but really enhances the shimmer of the shadows. I wore this eyeshadow all day and experienced no fall out, I even received a compliment or two!
Final verdict: Two thumbs up from me! I would consider this to be a universal palette, suitable for any age or skin type.
