So y’all know about my Halloween obsession and I’m pretty sure this was the movie that kicked started that obsession. The Nightmare before Christmas Collection contains 2 palettes, 2 highlighters, 4 lip glosses, 2 styles of makeup bags and a brush set. Naturally I grabbed both palettes and highlighters to test for you.
The Nightmare before Christmas Collection is only available on the Revolution Beauty website (see here) and in Ulta (see here) for my US followers. I’m pretty sure this palette sold out in a few hours but there’s word of a restock coming so keep your eyes open. The Jack palette retails for £15/$22 and is cruelty free. UK Shipping from Revolution Beauty is free on orders over £30 and took about a week to arrive.
I absolutely love the overall design of the collection with its base of black and grey stripes and embossed scenes. Of course, Jack is embossed on the front of this one. The outer box contains all product information including the ingredients list. The palette itself feels well made and sturdy and despite being double sided it is lightweight for the travelling makeup artist. I love the imprinted skellington heads on the pans and the shade names are perfect.
The Makeup Revolution x Disney Jack palette contains 36 shades with a good mix of mattes and metallics. I really like the overall colour story and the layout of the shades. The colours are perfect representation of Jack. What I really love is the range of metallics in this palette; they go from containing the odd glitter particle to soft glow to full on BAM shine.
When doing the arm swatches, most of the shadows swiped well with one layer. In fact, I think this is probably one of the more pigmented palettes for swatching from Makeup Revolution. The shadows felt soft and creamy to touch apart from Dead of Night that had a slick overpressed feel to it. It didn’t swipe the smoothest either but the colour and shine were still gorgeous.
On the eye, the shadows perform really well. The shades are vibrant upon application and blend easily. They do lose some pigment when blending but the shades are buildable and don’t go patchy at any point. The matte shades work well together so you can produce a range of looks. The metallic shades are the most exciting part of this palette with a range of colours and effects that apply easily. There is some kickback in the pan for most shades but it’s mostly the metallics that leave fallout under the eye. Surprisingly I haven’t experienced any creasing with any of the shades in this palette.
Overall, I am so happy with this purchase from Makeup Revolution. Everything about it is just perfect; the packaging, the layout, the shades, the names. The shades are probably the most pigmented I’ve used from this brand but they are still buildable and easy to work with. For £15, you can’t go wrong with this one.
