Yesterday I shared an amazing Urban Decay Naked palette dupe and today I have another Urban Decay dupe but it is certainly not for those who shy away from bright shades. If you have coveted the newly launched Urban Decay Electric palette then this £4 number may be just for you...
The packaging of the Revolution Make Up eyeshadow palettes won't be to everyone's taste, yes they are very plastic based and not exactly high end but it does do the job. To my mind the casing is very similar to MUA Cosmetics ? Anyway yes a large plastic black and transparent palette which contains 12 long strips of eyeshadow (way more than any other budget brand) complete with a dual ended foam applicator. No I'm not a fan of such application method but for £4 I can ignore that and I'm sure we all have plenty of eyeshadow brushes we can use regardless.
All in there is 10 Revolution Make Up eyeshadow palettes to collect each of which does remind me of some famous palettes but more on that at a later date (look out for the mother or all dupe posts coming soon). The Revolution Redemption Palette Acid Brights is a medely of both neon and bright shades with a dupe for pretty much every Urban Decay Electric pressed pigment minus the red hue eyeshadow (slowburn). The Redemption Palette Acid Brights shades are not labelled with shade names but hey you can have a field day naming them yourself. I like that the palette offers both matte and shimmer eyeshadows which past Urban Decay dupes tended to neglect - a good matte eyeshadow never goes wrong in my book. As this palette contains 12 shades even if this palette isn't exactly a carbon copy of Urban Decay Electric you can't really complain as a good few of the shades come closer than close not to mention you have two extra eyeshadows.
The formulation of the eyeshadows is what really made me think of MUA Cosmetics as they have the same texture - slightly dry with a tendency to produce substantial fall out. It is difficult to be too critical as at £4 the palette really is wonderful value and teamed with a primer the dry issues are easily resolved. In terms of pigmentation there is no real issues, the eyeshadows offer great pigmentation (other than the white shadow which doesn't really show up on me at all), blend out fairly well and again if used with a primer stay in place for at least 8 hours. My only criticism is that the mattes within the palette are a little chalky but then again show me a budget palette without this problem? For those who are a little more creative than myself you could even use the Revolution Redemption Palette Acid Brights as hair chalk or mix it with a mixing medium and create face/body paint. If you are off to a music festival this summer this is the palette to pack!
