I know I have been out of the blogging scene lately, I'm so sorry about that =$.
I've been having a pretty hectic routine these days, but I've been trying out lots of new stuff, one of which is I'm going to review today for you guys (^_^)
Oh ! and I know it's very very late now (>_<), but as they "Better late than never." =D. Ramazan Mubarak to all my readers !
I'm pretty sure all of you are familiar with the brand Makeup Revolution. It's a UK based drugstore brand with amazing quality stuff at really affordable prices. Today I am going to review their Flawless Ultra 32 Eyeshadow Palette.
What Makeup Revolution has to say about it:
Ultra 32 eyeshadow palettes are the perfect professional eyeshadow go to palette. All you need in one handy collection palette.
32 shades in one palette with a great mix of shimmer and matte wearable and experimental shades to create any look and play with, for amazing performance and value!
Our ultra eyeshadows are packed full of pigment and all new shades, large full size mirror.
Flawless, the ultra collection of 32 nude and natural day and night shades.
First of all the outer cardboard packaging is ssooooo gorgeous !!! It's rose gold, shiny & reflective =D. On front it has the name of the palette embossed and on back it shows the original shades of the palette which I think is pretty clever!
The palette itself is nothing fancy just black plastic packaging, which is very compact and travel friendly. It has huge mirror which I really like, you can use it for makeup on the go.
The only downside for me is that the names of the shadows are printed on a plastic sheet (which you're either going to lose or throw anyway) inserted in the palette instead of the palette itself.
Oh! and I think I got a faulty palette as it doesn't close properly so as much as I love it I cannot travel with it :( !
I'll rate the packaging 6/10.
Texture & Pigmentation:
The texture and pigmentation of the shadows on this palette vary, most of the shades specially the shimmery ones are buttery soft, while the light matte ones (1 or 2 from the 1st and 2nd row you'll see in the swatches) are chalky and not very pigmented, but for the price you pay for this palette 1 or 2 duds are forgivable (^_^). The shadows have a bit of a fallout but I guess that's ok too as most of the high end eyeshadows have fallout aswell. The blendability of these eyeshadows is superb they blend beautifully without any effort.
I'll rate the texture and pigmentation 8.5/10
|First 2 rows of the palette swatched|
|Last 2 rows of the palette swatched|
I am sorry I forgot the swatch the 2nd last shade which is Cafe Noir, it's a beautiful taupey brown matte shade.
As you can see this palette has a variety of shades, you can create almost any look with it from daytime to nightime, from subtle to smokey, pretty much any look !
All in all it's a great budget friendly palette and I highly recommend it.
