Can I just start by saying, it makes me so happy to see affordable brands upping their game in the makeup world. Not everyone can afford an Anastasia, Natasha Denona, or even MAC for their makeup interests. Revolution Pro is a new launch from the house of Makeup Revolution, which is a UK based drugstore brand. Their products have been hit or miss in the past, mostly being hit with me. I love their line, though most of them seem “inspired” by luxury or more expensive brands.
With this new line, I think they decided to bring originality and quality to the market at affordable prices, and my god did they succeed. I recently bought a few items from the new range and so far all of them have impressed me. Today’s review is about two of their supreme eyeshadow palettes.
Read on to know my views about them.

What I have to say:
I think this could be the shortest reviews of all times. These palettes are AMAZING. Period.
I am sooo impressed with the quality, I want to scream on top of my lungs. If you don’t tell me what brand I am using, I will not be able to tell that these shadows are from drugstore, and so affordable.
The packaging is simple, sleek and sturdy. There is no mirror, just a clear top, but at the price, I am not complaining. It does not come with a brush, but mostly palettes will come with the sponge tip applicator which I don’t use anyway, so I am good without that too.
The shadows are laid out in vertical thin stripes, which probably is my only gripe. I find swirling the brush little difficulty, but hey, that’s just me being super picky.
The mattes are super soft and blendable. They feel so luxurious to touch and are so easy to use. I have never seen any patchiness using them. The pigmentation is amazing, but with that comes the fall out. The shadows have quite a lot of kick back when you put a brush in it. I personally am ok with it because they do blend easy, plus I get good colour in one pass. They also layer beautifully.
The shimmers/glitters in the palette are so creamy, its difficult to believe they’re pressed powder. They work great with fingers, a little less easy with a brush, but still look immensely foiled on the skin. The glitters stay stuck to the lids, which I do appreciate. The colour selections are great too. They have 4 palettes in this range, I got 2 of them. I now plan to get the other ones too, I am that impressed.
“Intoxicate” is a more warm toned palette with browns and red tones eyeshadows. There are 5 mattes and 3 shimmer/glitter eyeshadows in this one. It is probably my favourite out of all options. The other one is “Bewitch”, it has 7 shimmer/glitter shadows and one bone coloured matte. This eyeshadow palette is not sufficient alone, as there is only one matte shadow, but the shades are all amazing lid shades. The olive green in the shadow is one of the best green eyeshadows I have ever used.
The eyeshadows easily stay 5-6 hours on my eyelids without primer.
Do I recommend these palettes? I think I cannot recommend them ENOUGH. These are beautiful, buy them without any worries, you will not be disappointed.
You can buy these from Nykaa or Hokmakeup.
