Soph X Revolution Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches!
I've been so excited to write this post since planning this because this palette is my new obsession. I am in love with this palette! And if you haven't guessed already what I'm on about, it is the Soph X Revolution eyeshadow palette, and yes, this did come out back in September but my town has only just started to stock it in our local Superdrug, and pretty much everywhere I looked it was sold out! So I'm back writing a review today on this product.
Starting with the eyeshadows themselves, there are 14 mattes and 10 shimmers which is such a good ratio in my opinion as the mattes cover your transition shades, crease shades, and also Soph did say that some of the shades can be doubled up and used for eyebrow powders or contour shades which makes this palette very versatile. There are such a variety of shades too in my opinion, you have your classic creams, browns and golds however, there is a shimmery green, a shimmery purple and a blue (although this is actually brown?!?!)
After using this palette for a short while I have found that the matte shades blend so easily and they are very creamy. It is so simple to build up colours in your crease using the mattes because they are buildable, and that is something I have noticed when creating eyeshadow looks from lots of different colours. One thing I've seen from this palette is that the shadows last such a long time, and I don't notice this with any other palette I own, not even the Morphe palette, and the pigment lasts all day too, in particular in the shimmer shades, because they are incredibly pigmented even if they don't look that pigmented on paper. There is a bit of fallout from the shimmer shades however most shimmer shades have a bit of fallout. My favourite shades in the palette are: Cuppa Tea, Tiramisu, Sparks Fly and my favourite shade is the deep red shade called Danger.
I also just want to talk about the actual names of the shadows because I think Soph did such a good job naming each and every shade because she made all of them quite personal to her life, but also have relation to the actual shades because in some palettes the shade name doesn't really match the colour!
In terms of the packaging. I think it is absolutely stunning. The size is pretty good, and there is a massive mirror like all Revolution palettes which makes them perfect for travelling. What I like about the packaging is that it is matte, and I think that makes it look really professional and sleek which I like. The actual eyeshadow pans themselves are of such a good size and should hopefully last a long time.
And the best thing about this palette is the price. This is all worth £10, and it has the quality of a high end palette, so I think it is so worth the money!
Do you have this palette?? love
