I'm back with another eyeshadow palette to share with you my opinion on it and swatches. Is there any therapy groups for eyeshadow palettes addicts because I'm definitely one of them, haha! I can't help but to collect as many as I possibly can afford. So Makeup Revolution is definitely the dangerous brand for me as their eye shadows are good quality, very affordable and they bring a new palette every couple of weeks!
Beyond Flawless palette is one of their latest addition, it contains 32 eye shadows and costs £8, that's a bargain!
It comes in a golden box that makes it look like a more expensive product than it actually is. The actual packaging is a classic black plastic, sleek case with secure closure and a big mirror inside.
All the shades have names which are printed on a plastic sheet. It's a palette full of neutrals with different finishes from matte, through satin to shimmery/metallic. If you've tried Makeup Revolution eye shadows you know that they are soft, easy to blend, well pigmented and they last long on the lids.
Beyond Flawless palette has 32 shades that, if you look closely, you noticed, they are grouped within colour family in columns, from the lightest shade to the darkest. So that's how I also swatched them (all swatches are done without a primer).
First and second column.
First column is the least impressive, but there are some nice highlighting and blending shades, they're all soft but not very pigmented.
Second column is full of beautiful shimmers with great pigmentation.
Third and fourth column.
Here we have some nice pinks and peach shades, they're all soft and nicely pigmented. Spice- mauve-y pink with satin finish is my favourite.
Fifth and sixth column.
The fifth column has some matte shades which are not overly pigmented and need building up to get the desire intensity but they're still nice and soft. The sixth column has gorgeous shimmers with amazing pigmentation. Wholemeal, Cookie Dough and Sepia are my favourite from this bunch.
Seventh and eighth column.
The last two columns contain great shimmery/satin shades apart from the two darkest: Nightfall and Blackest which are not very pigmented and swatch a bit patchy but they do perform well on the eyes.
Overall I think it's a good palette for any neutrals lover or someone who just starts the makeup journey and wants some easy shades to wear, as in this palette you have plenty of them and they all go nicely together so you don't have to think what to pair with to achieve a nice eye look. The quality is great, especially for the price. The matte shades aren't very pigmented but they're buildable and they're not chalky at all like you might have experienced with some other matte eye shadows.
My only kind of a negative thought about this palette is that there are so many similar shades, it seems like half of them are the less pigmented version of the next one. As much as I wanted to be impressed by this palette I, unfortunately, wasn't. There are some beautiful shades but as a whole the palette didn't excite me much. Or maybe I own way too many palettes to fully appreciate this one ;)
What's your opinion on this palette? Have you bought any of the new Makeup Revolution palettes?
