It's been a while since I reviewed a Makeup Revolution eyeshadow palette but regular readers would know that I own many of them and highly rate quality of their eyeshadows considering the price point. Today I want to share with you a palette that is quite special and was created in collaboration with Jane aka British Beauty Blogger. If you follow many beauty blogs then I'm sure you know Jane and her blog. I've been following her for a few years, trust her opinion and always check her blog for any news from the world of beauty. Jane has been working with Makeup Revolution since the brand launched two years ago so I think it's only natural that they created a product together with her name on it.
The 'Fortune Favours The Brave' palette (£9.99) looks very different from the existing Makeup Revolution palettes, the packaging is matte gold which makes it look much more luxurious. The palette houses 30 eyeshadows, large mirror and a simple eyeshadow brush. The eyeshadows are very small which is not a problem for me but for those of you who don't own lots of makeup it's something worth noting.
The eyeshadows range from matte, satin to shimmery finishes, there are also 4 baked marbled eyeshadows which look stunning in the pan but also on the eyes. All the shades have names which are printed on a plastic sheet.
The overall quality of the eyeshadows is good, just like in any other Makeup Revolution palette. There are some less pigmented shades like Glimmer, Peachy, Midnight Rainbow, Tip Top, Smoothie, Latte, Crème, Soft and Pink Diamond which require a bit more work and building up to get a desire intensity.
The baked shades, Golden Coins, Lonely Planet, New World and Super Gold are highly pigmented and very metallic, absolutely beautiful all over the lid.
I was pleasantly surprised by the darker matte shades, Transformer, Drama Queen, Winning and Blacqua as they're buttery soft, very pigmented and easy to blend.
The shimmery and satin shades are all well pigmented and very smooth.
Although most of the eyeshadows have good pigmentation they all require a primer to get the best colour payoff. On my eye lids they last up to 8 hours without creasing or fading. When applying them to my eyes I've experienced only very little fallout with some of the darker shimmery shades.
The swatches were done on a primed skin with an eyeshadow primer.
My favourite shades from the palette are Skylight, Transformer, Golden Coins, Cashmere, Yes Please, Drama Queen, New World, Super Gold, Winning and Brave.
Here's a quick eye look I created using Yes Please all over the lid, Tip Top in the crease, Caffeine Fix to slightly darken the outer corner, Super Gold on the lower lash line and Peachy (applied wet) in the inner corner.
Jane wanted to create a palette that would suit people with different skin tones and at any age, neutral but with some colours to experiment with and I think she did it very well.
The shade selection is super pretty, although maybe more Autumn/Winter appropriate then Spring/Summer, and whether you're 20 or 40 years old you can create many beautiful makeup looks with all the colours.
I like the packaging and the price is definitely wallet friendly.
What do you think of the 'Fortune Favours The Brave' palette and the collaboration between Makeup Revolution and British Beauty Blogger?
PS. I will be taking a few days off from blogging just to spend more time with my family and enjoy the Easter break. I'll be back with new post next Wednesday.
Have a lovely Easter everyone!
