I’ve been looking into more affordable makeup for everyday wear. I’ve heard good things about this one and it’s supposed to be a dupe for the Huda Beauty Neutrals palette. If you have both leave us a comment on how they compare.
You can purchase this palette from the Beauty Bay website (see here), the company website (here), and also Superdrug (here). This retails for £15 and the palette weighs 16g in total. I picked mine up from Beauty Bay for my perk points but delivery from all three places is pretty quick. I think Superdrug is the slowest due to their order processing but you can pick this up in their stores.
The palette comes in an outer box, both decorated with gold animal print. All product information can be found on the unicarton including the ingredients list. The packaging of the palette feels reasonably sturdy to protect them shadows and you get a mirror in the lid.
I love the feel and design of this one. The palette is a good size and weight for a makeup artist to work with and can be held easily in one hand. Perfect for any makeup artist. Shade names are written underneath the pans as well as on the back.
This is an 18 pan palette; 8 mattes; 5 reflects, 2 glitters and a creamy concealer. I really love the inclusion of the concealer as your glitter shadows will always need a tacky base. This is a rose toned neutral palette but the colour story looks way different in person than the product images on BB. The shades are definitely lighter in the pan when compared with the stock images.
When doing the swatches, all of the shadows felt soft but the darker purple did have a slight chalkiness to it. The shimmers are buttery to the touch and swiped evenly. They look a little subtle but I don’t mind this as the glitters really do pop. The glitters look amazing but do not swatch well. They’re just too chunky so take care when using this around your eyes.
On the eye, the shadows do perform pretty well for the price. Although they’re not the most pigmented formula, they are buildable to get a decent colour. The shade range is fairly good for a neutral palette with a nice selection of tones. The mattes are easy to work with when blending. They do lose a bit of pigment but they aren’t patchy and the shades work well with each other.
The shimmers are super pretty. Some are more glittery than others and others more bright but they all have a subtle glow at least. These do last on the eye for a couple of hours but they do start to crease after that. The two glitter shades, Party and Golden are even prettier than the rest.
The concealer is an odd but welcome inclusion. I won’t be using this as a primer or an undereye concealer due to the formula however it works pretty well on the lid. It’s got a creamy but slightly sticky consistency making it perfect for keeping those glitter shades on without having to use glue.
Overall, I am so happy with this purchase from Revolution Pro. The packaging is pretty and sturdy without being heavy and cumbersome for an MUA. The colour story is a nice collection of rose neutrals that contain a good variation of shades. Not the most pigmented shadows but they are buildable and very easy to work with.
