Happy Halloween. I hope y’all have a great time and stay safe. Tonight I have the final item purchased from the Corpse Bride Collaboration with Makeup Revolution. There are a couple more palettes that I haven’t bought as they didn’t really excite me.
The Makeup Revolution x Corpse Bride The Newly Weds palette is available to purchase from the company website (see here) as well as from Superdrug (here). It was also available through Beauty Bay but they’ve taken down the listing since I ordered. This palette retails for £10. You qualify for free UK delivery on orders over £30 with Revolution and £25 with Superdrug. In the past I’ve found Superdrug delivery to be a little slower than Revolution but you’ll still have your order in a week.
The packaging is a little different to the Upstairs Downstairs palette. This one is in a tin case with a clear plastic sleeve. The outer sleeve contains the collaboration name and a shade plan on the back but that’s it. Since there’s no other information on it, the outer sleeve can be thrown away. The palette case has an image of Victor and Emily sat at the piano on the front . All other product information including the ingredients can be found under the sticker on the back. The palette is a good size and weight for holding and the lids shuts securely. There’s also a mirror in the lid and a protective cover over the shadows.
This is a 9 pan palette with a predominantly blue colour story but it contains some lilac and turquoise tones. The colour story is perfect for these two characters. There are 6 matte shades and 3 shimmers in this one which offer a slight variety to your eye makeup. The pans are a good size and also have skulls pressed into some of them.
When doing the swatches, most of the shadows felt soft and swiped easily. The exceptions being the shades The Groom and Enthusiasm which felt harder and required a few layers to get a full swatch.The shades Newlyweds and Not Mine are surprisingly pigmented considering their colour.
On the eye, the shadows perform well. The mattes aren’t the most pigmented formulas but they are easy to blend and can be layered to build that pigment. None of the shades were patchy either which is surprising for the blue tones. The shades work well together to create a gradient. I didn’t have any issues with the shade Enthusiasm on the eye. In fact, it blends out quite a lot so be weary when using bigger brushes. The shimmers look stunning and are quite pigmented under the shine. The shade The Groom was difficult to get out of the pan using a brush which is a shame as this is the perfect inner corner shade.
There was some kickback in the pans for the majority of the shades; the exception being The Groom. There was fallout under the eye for the shimmer shades alone with Love Triangle being the worst. I’ve not had any other issues when using this palette although I don’t have sensitive skin. Any issues please stop using and seek medical advice immediately.
Overall, I’m pretty happy with The Newlyweds palette from the Corpse Bride and Makeup Revolution collaboration. The packaging is really cute and lightweight while offering good protection for your shadows. I love the image used for the front of the palette. The shade range is a perfect representation of the two characters. Although the shade range is limited, a small variety of looks can be produced using this alone. The shadows themselves are mostly soft fairly pigmented and easy to blend. One of two are pressed slightly too hard I think but they are still usable.
