An Absolutely Flawless Eyeshadow Palette From Make Up Revolution



Apologies for the musical interlude but I couldn't resist - cheesy as it is I love that song :) As much as I love it I probably love this newish release from Make Up Revolution even more - What is it?  Well given the song it's obviously the Make Up Revolution Ultra 32 Shade Eyeshadow Palette in Flawless


I really, really, really didn't need another eyeshadow palette especially not another neutral one  but so many of my fellow bloggers are just temptresses and it was inevitable, weak willed that I am, that I would succumb. So last week I placed a little Superdrug order, and ordered myself a Flawless palette.


The palette comes packaged in the familiar Make Up Revolution shiny black compact. They look lovely but they are sooo hard to photograph, and the finger marks!! eeek, just try to ignore them lol.

The palette contains 32 eyeshadows that are just slightly larger than a 5 pence piece. The compact contains a large mirror and unlike a lot of their palettes you don't get any applicator I have to say I wish more budget brands would just forgot about the applicators I personally never use them especially if they're sponge ones, so in  lot of cases it just seems like a waste.


This is a real day to night palette and contains a combination of matte, metallic and shimmer shadows. The shades are quite neutral, there are lots of browns, nudes, taupe's and vanillas but there are also lots of dark, greys and greens and even burgundy toned shades that are ideal for night time

As we've come to expect from Make Up Revolution, the colour pay off is superb, and the shadows including the mattes are soft, buttery and easy to blend. It took a bit of time but I've swatched all 32 shadows for you :) Some of the colours aren't showing up too well here, particularly some of the highlighting shades in the first picture, but that's because they seem to match my skin tone perfectly, the pigmentation is fine my skin is just pasty, blue, grey pale. The lighting wasn't the best either yesterday afternoon but I think that these pictures will give you a pretty good idea of what you can expect from this palette.

Beautiful isn't it? This is probably one of the most wearable palettes in my collection and unlike some palettes I can see myself using every single colour in it at some point. The nudes and taupe's are ideal for day time, and some of the metallics and darker shades are ideal for a bit of night time glamour or for a smokey eye look. This palette would be an perfect addition to a make up collection  whether someone is an existing beauty junkie or whether they're quite new to or inexperienced with make up. I've only used it a couple of times so far, sticking to a really neutral day look on both occasions but I can't wait to have a proper play with it and create some more evening type looks. 

This palette retails at £8.00 which I think is great value for 32 excellent, quality eye colours. This palette is currently available from the Make Up Revolution website, the Superdrug website and from selected Superdrug stores and if your a fellow North East based lady or gent , Metro Centre Superdrug had this in stock today :) 

Yet again I'm impressed with a Make Up Revolution purchase and having had the chance to have a little play with some more of their products in my local Superdrug today, I can only see my obsession continuing x I'll have a haul post up next week so you can see some of the other things that I got, but  in the meantime if you're a fan of this palette check back on Sunday for my giveaway launch and you never know ;) Thanks for reading and if you have a favourite Make Up Revolution product I'd love you to tell me about it so exercise your typing fingers and let me know x
