I had my eyes on the Makeup Revolution 144 Eyeshadow palette 2016 Collection ever since it came out, and I was lucky enough to receive it as a Christmas present from my boyfriend’s sister! After using it for over a month I finally decided to do a review on it and I managed to find the time to swatch all the shades 🙂
The Makeup Revolution 144 eyeshadow palette retails for only £10 so that’s a bargain to begin with, where else can you find 144 eyeshadows that are pretty amazing (few exceptions) for so cheap? The only reason I hesitated to get it is I own so many Makeup Revolution products, I somehow want to diversify my collection a little bit… but luckily someone read my mind and got it for me as a gift – yay! I wore a mix of (a bunch of) eyeshadows from this palette on New Year’s Eve and I got a couple compliments on my makeup – that’s when you know that one product is worth hyping about, hehe.
The thing I love about having so many different eyeshadows in one palette (well duh) is being able to create so many different looks. There are lots of neutral eyeshadows but there’s fun colors as well, you have warm and cool undertones, mattes and shimmers, something for every hour of the day and every preference or idea you may have.
But with having so many eyeshadows in one palette, there is the size aspect that stops me from grabbing this with me on the go more often – I stay at my boyfriend’s 5 days a week, so I have to chuck it in my hand bag because it wouldn’t fit anywhere else. Yeah I could just leave it at his place since I am there all the time basically, but for some reason I like taking my makeup with me and switching up every now and then since I have quite a few palettes in my collection.
Anyway, yes, some shades are more pigmented (some of the shimmers look almost foiled, even) than others… I often find that matte eyeshadows, especially the lighter colored ones, could use a lot more pigment but there are a few of them that are really impressive. There are shadows which are soft and buttery but there’s also some from which you may get a little bit of fall out. Some transfer really easily on to the brush/finger/eye and others take time to build up. I also figured that some look way prettier when swatched than they do in the pan – it’s like my skin tone brings out the undertone they have and makes them stand out a bit more… am I crazy? But hey, I think that overall the Makeup Revolution 144 eyeshadow palette is a great addition to my collection. And as I said earlier, for the price it is a real bargain!
Below you can see each of the 144 eyeshadows swatched on my arm – I went row by row because I figured swatching them would be the best way to find out which are the best shades from the Makeup Revolution 144 eyeshadow 2016 collection palette, see what each one looks like and also it’d be handy having swatch pictures to look at for when I want to go for a certain look or color and I’m not sure what to use. Click on each picture to enlarge if you want a better look.
And that’s all for my Makeup Revolution 144 Eyeshadow Palette, 2016 Collection, review and swatches 🙂 I couldn’t be more excited when I received this! As I said earlier, yeah some shades could be better. But taking a look at the pictures (*drools*) I think that most of them are amazing and made me go like “yessss!” a bunch of times while swatching and taking pictures 🙂
As always, thank you very much for stopping by! Have you tried the Makeup Revolution 144 eyeshadow palette, or anything else from their brand? I’d love to know 🙂
