I own a few Revolution make-up palettes all of which I deem pretty great for the price but today I have what I would deem a must have and my favourite palette from the brands vast eyeshadow line up. Yes I am a neutral gal through and through but every girl (and guy) needs a little pop of colour now and then...
As I have said before 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. Basically all the palettes are based around the same design within the line - a large plastic black and transparent palette which contains 12 long strips of eyeshadow (way more than any other budget brand) complete with a 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 some of which does remind me of some famous palettes but more on that at a later date. The Redemption Essential Day to Night Palette features a broad variety of shades: neutrals, deep smoky shades and even a few brights. If ever there was a suit every occasion palette this is it. You have light everyday shades for work, brights for play and all the deep shades you could ever need for a night on the town. If you are new to make-up and want a palette to cover all basis this is it. Four British pounds well spent in my opinion.
Truthfully the texture of the eyeshadows are sightly dry with a tendency to produce substantial fall out - the texture reminds me somewhat of the MUA and Sleek make-up palettes. 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, blend out fairly well and again if used with a primer stay in place for at least 8 hours. I guess the main grumble for most will be that the Revolution Redemption Essential Day to Night Palette features all shimmer/metallic shades but like I said for £4 it really is a good buy.
