Makeup Tutorial using the Makeup Revolution Ultra Eye Contour Light & Shade Palette

This beautiful eyeshadow palette has been surrounded by a lot of controversy over the last week, when Kat Von D herself posted a very angry Instagram photo calling out Makeup Revolution for completely copying her Shade & Light palette. The whole reason I wanted this palette for myself was because of the fact it was such an incredible dupe of the ridiculously overpriced original. Of course the quality will be better, but I really can’t justify spending £37 on an eyeshadow palette.

I had been after this palette a while and it had been out of stock on TAMbeauty. I was so happy to find in in my local Superdrug however, and have been putting it to the test ever since! I have to say that I absolutely love this palette. It was a brilliant £8 and there are so many neutral looks to be created with it. The palette is split into three quads of complementary neutrals.

 

I had a go at putting together a look for you to try – let me know if you give it a go!Firstly, set your primer/concealer with the light shade all over the lid up to the brow bone

Next, I added this very light, almost peachy shade along my crease

This brick red shade was placed on my outer corner and along my lower lash line

I then placed this light brown all over my lid and stopped below my crease

Finally, I used a darker brown as a kind of eyeliner along my upper lash line

Ta-Dah!

This is a very subtle look, suitable for everyday wear.

The palette is still sold out on TAMbeauty, but you can purchase it online at Superdrug (with free delivery!) here.

  1. Oooh yikes, I had no idea KVD slammed this palette! I understand how she could be furious – it would likely erode her own palette sales.
    I’m guessing the quality of the Makeup Revolution is good / comparable?
