If you missed my recent video here talking about what I picked up in a HUGE Makeup Revolution haul then I advise you to to take a little look to see just how many amazing products have recently been launched by the company – this being one of them – Makeup Revolutions Collaboration with Jane from British Beauty Blogger creating an eyeshadow palette called ‘Fortune Favours the Brave’ described as providing you with the opportunity to create an any-which-way smoky eye. I mentioned if you wanted to see a more detailed review of the products then I’d be happy to review them on my blog and this was a palette that has created a HELLA LOT OF ATTENTION and this review has been requested by so many people so I really hope you enjoy reading this *warning: may result in you adding this to your collection*
This eyeshadow palette has sold out in all Superdrug stores since its launch and all in good reason – the array of shades are wearable on all skin types which makes in an incredibly versatile palette. I would say the majority of the shades are warm in tones with the very few cool tones shades but these will make any eye colour pop. Ever since this arrived and I revealed it in my Haul Video I haven’t stopped playing around with these and despite being scared of a smoky eye, these make it easy for beginners that don’t want to dive right in with black shades as you can create brown, blue, green, purple and gold smoky eyes as well as the more traditional matte/shimmer black smoky eyes. The hype of this palette, in short, is so real and I couldn’t recommend it enough, especially for the £9.99 price tag (plus you get 20% off for a limited time with the Makeup Revolution app).
These not only swatch amazingly, but look fantastic lid. I would recommend you would need an eye primer, my favourite is Mac’s pain pot in Painterly, but any would work either high end or drugstore, but if they have a more sticky finish I would recommend setting them with a powder so the eyeshadows blend much easier. I would genuinely say the pigmentation in these are better than other Makeup Revolution palettes, but they’re all very good especially for the money. You do get a little fall out in some of the shades but that is not necessarily a sign of a bad product, it can often be a side effect of a well pigmented shade, so don’t worry about that. Therre are some shades with large glitter pigments in them (three in total) that do apply slightly more patchy than the others as they have these large glitter particles in them but they build up wonderfully and give such a unique finish. I would expect this to cost over £30 going by palettes I already own so this is a total steal for the money – can you tell I’m very impressed?
Another ponint to mention is the incredible packaging of this palette. The other standard Makeup Revolution palettes often sees the text printed on the compact rub off in time, I’ll have to add sticky labels soon so I know which palette is which as I have so many now as they’re incredible but this palette storms over them all as it feels incredibly professional and the gold colour makes it look gorgeous in my collection. This came with me to Devon last week and travelled so well, and it’s thin enough to whack in any bag. I created natural every day looks as well as dramatic looks for a night out and love this even more than I imagined I would. I’ve had friends and family eyeing this up all week and I don’t have any bad comments to make for this other than a few shades need to be build up for maximum pigmentation but honestly, for the price, this is comparable to so many high end palettes I would recommend this to everyone. It does also come with an eyeshadow brush and if you don’t have any already provides you with everything you need to blend shadows and pack on colour, much better than a sponge applicator, but if you have other eyeshadow brushes then you probably won’t use it much but it’s good if you’re travelling and don’t want to take much with you!
