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.
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.
Welcome back to part two of the Soph x Makeup Revolution collection, todays edition is my thoughts on the highlighter palette, if you haven’t checked out the first part which is the eyeshadow palette then you can read it here.
I absolutely love Soph’s videos and Makeup Revolution so its a match made in heaven, it would be nice if she created more products in the future!
The highlighter palette packaging is quite simple with its peachy coloured box, window view and rose gold writing. Unfortunately there couldn’t be any shade names due to the window but it’d be interesting to know what they would have been called.
The highlighters consist of eight stunning shades four baked and two pressed, again this palette is aimed at all skin tones so whilst its not possible to use all of them as highlighters the remaining shades will make great eyeshadows.
Apologies for the swatches not being the best they are extremely pigmented in the flesh! I adore the purple shade and even though I wont be able to use the bronze shades they would look gorgeous on deeper skin tones and as eyeshadows.
For £8 you get a large palette with a selection of different shades to match most skin tones.
Available at Superdrug, Tam Beauty and coming soon to Ulta.
One of my favourite Youtubers Sophdoesnails has recently collaborated with Makeup Revolution to create two stunning palettes, one eyeshadow and one highlighter. It is not limited edition but they have been selling out fast on the Superdrug website. I managed to get both so stay tuned for the highlighter review with swatches.
The packaging is a matte peachy pink colour with rose gold embossed writing and paint splats, Soph designed it all herself and went for a watercolour theme. It definitely stands out against the other Makeup Revolution palettes.
There are 24 shades to choose from with a mixture of mattes and shimmers, as you can see there’s a wide selection for all occasions. I absolutely love the colours available and constantly use shimmer shades.
I’m not the best at swatches but I’ve included some of my favourite shimmer and matte shades, the swatches don’t do them much justice as they are extremely pigmented. I absolutely love the shades Festive Flame and Copper Coin its great shades for Autumn.
The mattes are so pigmented and easy to blend, Soph wanted her palette to appeal to all audiences and skin tones not just for fair skin tones like herself.
At just £10 you get a large mirror, 24 shades and a palette that’s great for all occasions!
