As you may be aware Revolution Make-Up have taken the world by storm recently with their super affordable and hugely expansive make-up line. 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). If you enjoy an array of neutral eyeshadows (think Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette) then Revolution Make Up What You Waiting For Palette should be next on your hit list...
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?
We Love You - Light, icy champagne good levels of colour pay off but not the most pigmented shade.
Tick Tock - Warm, pink toned beige applies similarly to We Love You above.
Can't Find the Brake - Cool toned and pink tinged mauve, buttery soft and well pigmented.
Moving Car - A more pink and cool toned version of Can't Find the Brake above.
Do it Alone - A mid toned mushroom come mauve shade, very similar to MAC Club despite what my image shows.
Sex Chromosome - A blackened deep purple come red, glitter based, a little dry but a good dupe for MAC Beauty Marked.
Now its Only Me - A light, lilac come pink hue, beautifully pigmented.
Scary Conversation - True, bright metallic gold, applies like a dream.
Take a Chance - True rose gold, not the best in terms of colour pay off.
Shut My Eyes - Warm toned brown with a strong red undertone, more satin in finish than metallic.
Stupid H.. - Very similar to Sex Chromosome but softer in texture.
Life is Short - Shimmery, almost matte glitter based black hue. Good levels of colour pay off.
Your Capable - Slightly chalky but workable warm ivory.
Super Hot Female - Warm, light brown, well pigmented and a great brow shade for blondes/auburn hair tones.
Million Dollar Contract - Warm, pink brown, great colour pay off.
Hot Track - Deep brown toned purple, applies beautifully and has excellent pigmentation levels.
Brand New Fans - Deepest matte brown, no application problems and intense pigmentation.
