Makeup Revolution – Ultra 32 Shade Eyeshadow Palette in Flawless (£8.00)
What Makeup Revolution says:
ULTRA 32 Eyeshadow palettes are the perfect professional eyeshadow go to palette. All you need in one handy collection palette. 32 shades in 1 palette with a great mix of shimmer and matte wearable and experimental shades to create any look and play with, for amazing performance and value!
What I say:
Overall I like the palette. It is a very handy one for everyday looks in my opinion. I am impressed by the buttery texture of some of the shadows. I would say that the matte ones are rather chalky and not as easy to work with, but the shimmery shades glide on like a dream and are very pigmented. They remind me a bit of my Too Faced eyeshadows, which are in a lot more expensive.
When I used them with my Concrete Minerals Electric Eye Primer they did crease after a few hours though. With my Too Faced Shadow Insurance they seem to work a bit better, but I still had some smudging by the end of the day.
For a drugstore palette I think this is certainly a good deal, and if you are new to makeup or on a budget, keep your eyes out. They have a big range of eyeshadows for every taste, from neutral to very bright and colourful. Some of their palettes are apparently dupes for the much hyped Urban Decay Naked Series (see links below). I will add an eye makeup that I created with this palette soon as well.
