Revolution have done it again! They’ve collabed with another inspirational and humble influencer called Imogen (or Imogenation as her channel is known). She has produced an eyeshadow palette and a contour and highlight palette and they are both gorgeous!
The Eyeshadow Palette
I firstly need to talk about the packaging – the lid is a lilac colour but in the light is has a shift to it which is stunning. It’s my new favourite Revolution packaging (sorry Kisu). The inside of the palette is a nude/pink which is also very pretty.
Now for the eyeshadows themselves! Imogen herself said she wanted the palette to really reflect her own makeup style and she said she just loves neutral and warm tones. She wanted a palette that could be used for both day and evening looks seamlessly. She has also included four larger pans of colour which are transition and crease shades, as these colours tend to run out faster!
So how did they swatch?
They look pretty good, don’t you think? It was interesting to see the colours together on my arm and not in the palette, there are a lot of similar shades but they are varied by being either mattes or shimmers. I personally like the colour selection as they are the sorts of tones that help bring out my eye colour. I think fans were hoping for brighter and more ‘out there’ shades – a reflection of Imogen’s personality – but she has explained her reasons for her colour choices well in her videos. The formula of the shadows is good – they blend nicely, the lighter shimmers aren’t the most pigmented in the world but they’re pretty all the same.
Highlight to the Moon
This palette contains three setting powders – a translucent one, a banana powder and a peachy toned one (which I actually use as a bronzer!), there are also three contours/bronzers and four highlighters.
The top six powders are very good and do the job they advertise well. I’m looking forward to using them in my makeup artist kit. I only swatched the three (four if you use the double pan in the centre separately) highlighters as they’re the pretty ones!
To he honest, they don’t swatch great, but they look beautiful on the skin. My fave is Angel Face which is multi tonal and so pretty. They are very finely milled and aren’t glittery – just a leave a beautiful sheen on the skin.
