If you read a recent post of mine called my gift swapping with Ellie, then you will have seen that she kindly gifted my the Revolution mini eye shadow palette in Rose Gold. As soon as I opened this gift, I was so excited to try it. I have never experimented with using pink shadows on my eyes very much so this provided me with the perfect excuse too!
The palette contains 6 matte shades and 2 shimmers, it is quite a small palette but you do get a good amount of each shadow (especially the shimmers), you also get a very good quality mirror which makes it so easy to travel with and it has a gorgeous shade range.
The palette has a light toned brown shade in the top right corner which makes for a great base to layer the rest of the shadows on to. The light toned pink with purple undertones which is next to it works really well in the crease or over the lid. The dark, plum shade is amazing in the outer corner as it adds a lot of depth and smokes the look out. Below these, the wine / dark purple shade is also fab for the outer corner. The light pink is quite out there so it is something that I struggle more to incorporate more in to looks but as it is so bright, it really adds a pop of colour to any look. Finally, there is a warm toned pink with brown undertones which is also great for all over the lid or for the crease to blend the other shadows together. All of the matte shades are very build-able and each one has different variations of pigmentation, I found that the lighter ones needed more layering.
As for the shimmers, there is a gorgeous light pink shadow in the top left hand corner which can also be used as a highlighter, when I have used this, I always apply it to my inner corner of on the inner proportion of my eyelid. The other shimmer is a darker toned pink which is also stunning. Both shimmers are very pigmented and surprisingly, have got little fallout.
Within this post, I though it may also be interesting to show you one of the eye looks that I have created whilst using this palette. I started off with my usual base routine and applied an eye primer before the eye shadow. To start, I applied the shade 3rd from the left in the bottom row all over my lid, I used a few layers so that it stood out and was pigmented. I then used the purple toned shadow just above it and blended this through my crease. I then used the light toned brown and applied it on the inner proportion of my eye lid so that there was a variation of colour. Finally, I mixed the 2 darkest shades and applied them to my outer corner and finished it all off by putting the light pink shimmer in my inner corners!
Thank you to Ellie for kindly gifting me this palette as you’ve pushed me to experiment more!! I wished that my phone quality could do the shadows as much justice as they looked so much more pigmented in person.
Thank you for reading, I hope that you enjoyed this post as I have loved testing out this eye shadow palette. If you’d like to follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you can find me at @bethxkate.
