When I saw SophDoesNails announce her collab with Makeup Revolution, I was super excited! I loved the look of the eyeshadow palette especially after she went through each shade and her reasons behind each shade name (watch it here).
It is immediately apparent that this is a very versatile palette and I began planning many different looks using it in my head. When it was released on Wednesday at 10:30am, I was poised over the buy button! The palette arrived this morning and I just can’t stop looking at it, I mean just look at the picture below and tell me it’s not beautiful!
The palette arrived in a gorgeous pastel pink box, designed by Soph herself. She actually painted the watercolour design which covers the whole box herself. It also has a few paint splats in rose gold over it and Soph’s signature in rose gold too. The palette itself is a very cool matte nude with the rose gold writing on it once again. I absolutely love the packaging to be honest, it is right up my street and just looks so chic.
Now for the swatches!
So, I can honestly say I really like every colour in the palette. The neutrals are gorgeous and will look amazing as transition and crease shades. The matte shades didn’t swatch as well as the shimmers did and took two dips into the palette. The bonus thing about this is that you can gradually build colour instead of putting too much on at the first brush stroke. Every single shimmer shade is super pigmented and very pretty. I’m very impressed with the quality considering this palette was only £10 for 24 eyeshadows.
I had a go at creating a look using my stand out shades today, and here’s what I did –
- Pancakes – all over the lid
- Tiramisu – in the crease
- Pumpkin – on the outer crease
- I then created a cut crease base using concealer
- Sparks Fly – over the cut crease base on the inner corner
- Grow Old – over the cut crease base on the centre of the lid
- Danger – on the outer corner and lower lash line
- Fairy Lights – as an inner corner highlight
The colours were extremely easy to work with – blendable with some fallout but nothing major.
Overall, I’m super excited by this palette and can see it becoming a firm favourite and go-to palette for everyday use as well as special occasions. A big congratulations to Soph – so great to see beauty gurus and YouTubers doing so well!
