Revolution Make-Up has taken the world by storm recently with their super affordable eyeshadow palettes, foundations, lipsticks and literally everything in-between. Just last week the brand launched a line up of five new and limited edition eyeshadow palettes dubbed the Salvation Palette Collection and trust me when I say you are going to want all five (at £6 each that is entirely possible too without breaking the bank). My favourite has to be Girls On Film which is a must have if you enjoy warm neutrals...
This time around the packaging of the Revolution Make-Up eyeshadow palettes is more sophisticated and reminds me a lot of the style Bobbi Brown rely on - a large glossy black plastic compact, golden accents complete with a large mirror inside. Truly the only thing that would make this palette better in terms of presentation is to scrap the foam applicators but given the low price tag I can't complain. It really does look slick and I adore the kitsch 80's palette name and all the individual shade titles too.
Each of the Revolution Make-Up Salvation Palette contain 12 beautiful shimmer shades and 6 matte eyeshadows all of which have been chosen to compliment one and other. Not many palettes let alone budget palettes these days contain mainly shimmer based shadows so it is nice to have an array of matte eyeshadows to add depth and definition to looks. Another first for Revolution Make-Up is that each shade within the Revolution Make-Up Salvation Palette is individually named. I have a break down of each eyeshaodw below but generally speaking the shimmer shades are soft and well pigmented with the mattes being a little drier and more difficult to blend out. I do have to state that this is a problem I have incurred with just about every "budget" matte eyeshadow out there. I do recommend using a primer with both formulations to optimise wear and prevent creasing. As most will know I have oily skin with extends to my eye lids and can typically achieve up to 7 hours of wear with the mattes (around 8 for the shimmers) with a primer. Not bad for £6 huh?
Walking Hand in Hand - a light almost ballet pink cream shade that is more satin in finish than metallic/shimmer, one of the least pigmented shades of the bunch.
Heads Turning - a beautiful cool toned rose gold, no application/pigmentation issues.
Camera Rolling - a light bronze taupe, reminds me of MAC Satin Taupe Eyeshadow. Really pigmented.
Take Your Picture - warm orange come red toned bronze, well formulated/pigmented.
Polaroid Heaven - warm toned red bronze, well formulated/pigmented.
Made a Million - a soft shimmery grey that packs a punch in terms of colour pay off.
Bridge at Midnight - a soft yellow toned grey, applies similarly to Walking Hand in Hand (above).
Lights Flashing - a light rose gold, well pigmented.
Frenzy All Down Your Spine - a bright true bronze, one of the stand out shades for me. So beautifully formulated.
Lipstick Over the Lens - another purple tinged taupe, very similar in all aspects to Camera Rolling.
Smile Wider - despite being a deep, rich purple the pigmentation is slightly lacking.
Hold Tight - like above this deep gunmetal grey appears deeper in the pan than it does on the skin
Give me Shudders - a really good matte brown/purple shade that is well pigmented and not chalky at all.
Shooting Star - a light cool toned mauve, a little soft but not stark/chalky.
One in a Million - not the best in terms of pigmentation, a little powdery but a pretty light lilac.
So Bright - more of a deep grey than true black but easy to apply, blend out.
She's Falling - a chalky deep purple.
Girls on Film - a beautiful light nude, one of the best light neutral matte eyeshadows I have ever used.
You can find the Revolution Make-Up Salvation Palette in Girls on Film here for £6.
