Revolution have been coming out with a whole load of new releases and have collaborated with the Youtuber Soph from Sophdoesnails for the second time. Her first collection came out last year and was an eyeshadow palette and a highlighter palette which I love.
This year she has released another eyeshadow palette called Extra Spice and three gorgeous nude lipsticks named Syrup, Fudge and Cake which retail for £4 each.
The packaging of the lipsticks match nicely to both of the eyeshadow palette, when I first saw these in my parcel I thought they looked smaller than I was expecting them to be. Engraved within the lipstick is Soph’s name which I think is a nice personal touch.
The lipsticks are a satin finish, glide on the lips and have an easy application, I didn’t find that a lip liner was needed as you can get a neat line with the lipstick itself. You can blot your lips to make the finish matte if you want to but I found after a couple of hours it looks matte anyway.
I love all of these shades but I think that Fudge is my favourite as it’s a gorgeous deep nude brown but all the shades are great for everyday use anyway. They are also cruelty free and suitable for Vegans.
Currently these are only available online!
Sophie from Sophdoesnails and Revolution are at it again with another exciting collaboration! If you didn’t know then Soph is a Youtuber who does loads of great testing videos, first impressions etc… of mainly drugstore makeup. I absolutely loved her first eyeshadow palette and highlighter palette so I had to buy her new collection.
The packaging is stunning and definitely stands out, the look they’ve gone for is inverted colours of the original palette which is a great idea. The back of the box also reveals the shades inside but I don’t fully trust these as the shades tend to look different anyway.
There are 18 shades this time around so slightly less than the first palette but they both retail for £10. There’s 6 gorgeous shimmer shades and 12 mattes, this palette has bolder colours than the first one and I like that the shade names are now printed on the case instead of on the plastic sheet it comes with.
I’m not the best at swatches but I’ve swatched all the colours to show what they are as the palette is only available online.
There is definitely pigment in these shadows, they are buildable and blend out easily so what more could you want from a palette? I love the shimmer shades the best and they don’t even need fixing spray to bring out the colour as they are already incredible when applied dry! I only wish there were more shimmers in the palette but that’s due to personal preference.
The colours are versatile and can be used to create loads of looks and match perfectly with the original palette.
This palette is a bargain for £10! It’s also cruelty free and suitable for Vegans.
