I haven’t been doing makeup or beauty reviews for long, which is weird considering this blog did start out as a beauty blog, but when I do upload one there’s a 90% chance it’ll be on an eyeshadow palette. Why you ask? I just really love buying eyeshadows, I think I have a palette problem. Not kidding. Today I’m going to be reviewing the Makeup Revolution Girl Panic palette, now I love MUR, I find it really hard to go wrong with them and they’re so affordable. I didn’t purposely buy this palette if I’m honest, Superdrug had an offer where if you spent a certain amount on Makeup Revolution products you’d get a palette free, and since I’m such an offer nerd I just couldn’t resist it. I was slightly unsure on this palette, some colours I really loved the look of but others just weren’t me and kinda make me think. For the most part I do like it, although mostly the orange, red and peach toned colours are the ones I tend to lean for the most.
I’ll start off as per with the packaging, it’s a general Makeup Revolution palette with the plain black on the front and the name of the palette, then when you open it up you have 12 shimmer shades and 6 matte ones at the bottom. I have to admit that I was awfully surprised at how well I got along with this palette. It’s quite versatile and although the pans are small a little goes a long way, the pigmentation is very soft and creamy with the shimmery shades. The only problem I have with this is the fallout, but for eyeshadows pricing at £6 (or free if you bagged yourself the deal too) you can’t really complain much there and that’s something you just generally find with cheaper makeup.
The shades themselves are relatively easy to blend, sometimes I do have to put a little more work in than normal and I do have to build some of the colours up a little to get the best pigmentation, but they still work surprisingly well and when added with a little bit of water you’d be shocked at how amazing it goes on.
Have you used this palette? If so what did you think? I can’t help myself when it comes to Makeup Revolution and their products, I’m not normally a drugstore kinda gal but there’s just something about them, plus I’m very rarely disappointed. One of my favourite products is their skin kiss highlighter, I uploaded a review on it a while back which you can find HERE if you’re interested.
