I am really loving the Revolution collaborations at the moment – you hopefully would have seen my recent review of Carmi’s palette with them last week (if not, read it here). I was very excited that SophDoesNails was releasing a second palette with Revolution, as her first palette is one of my faves and is one of my most used palettes (I also reviewed that one here!). It was fab to see that she was releasing lipsticks too – after all, she is the nude lipstick queen! I have to say, on first look, I am pretty blown away by the packaging. The palette’s outside design is a reverse of the original palette – with a rose gold lid and matte nude writing. I really like that the lipsticks match this too.
Aren’t they just beautiful to look at? I love how these look and also how Soph’s signature is engraved into the lipstick itself – such a sweet little touch. There are three nude shades to choose from – suitable for all skin tones.
Syrup is the lightest shade and is your everyday peachy/brown nude. Cake is the medium toned shade with a pink undertone. This is my personal favourite as I love a nude with a hint of pink. The darkest shade is called Fudge and is just as gorgeous as the other two. I’ve been wearing it today actually and it is very flattering on my skin tone.
The lipsticks aren’t a matte finish – which is probably my only issue with them. You know I love a matte, but the formula of these is very nourishing and moisturising so that’s a good thing. They do last well, but not all day. For £4 each, you really can’t go wrong. To buy yours, click here.
The Palette – Extra Spice
This is an eyeshadow palette full of gorgeous summer tones and hot, chilli vibes. There are also a few cool toned shades in there – including a silver called Infinity, which is pretty incredible and a dark brown called Brownies. There are some khaki colours too – really not my thing, but I know some people will love these! My current favourite shade is the deeper orange shade called Sweet N Sour, which is perfect through the crease or all over the lid. For a simple look today, I paired it with Dreams all over the eyelids and it looked really pretty!
Some of the eyeshadows are definitely more pigmented than others. The one I struggled with most to swatch was Vitamin C (the light yellow), but it picked up surprisingly well on a brush. The shimmers are all very good, especially the yellow gold called LA Sun. Overall, I’m impressed once again with the Soph collab – is it as good as the first?
