Heya guys! Over the past year there has been so much hype over Revolution’s huge range of affordable and diverse eye shadow palettes. My first ever eye shadow palette was one of their originals, ‘What Are You Waiting For?’, and I used it every day for about a year. I decided I’d give one of their newer palettes a try and as tempted as I was by their Two Faced Chocolate Bar dupes, I decided to go for ‘Fortune Favours The Brave’.
I chose this palette because as you can see above, the colour range is huge! I am living for the appearance of the marbled shimmers as they are STUNNING. Moreover, this palette only costs £9.99! That works out 33p per colour. INSANE right?!
True to nature I will be honest with my review. The shimmers are amazing. Really. They are well pigmented and the fallout was minimal meaning that they were creamy enough to sit in place all day. Some of them even double up well as highlighters.
As for the matte shades…hrmmm… They didn’t show up as pigmented as I had hoped. I’ve tried various looks and have used all of the colours and I’ve found that the lack of pigment means that when the shadows are blended, there isn’t a huge distinction between the colours so you have to blend lightly. The blue and green shades seem to be the only ones that didn’t have this issue.
Although the pigment isn’t too intense, the palette as a whole is actually very easy to work with. You can create many subtle looks, and I’ve found that this is the best palettes for brown/purple smokey eyes. If you’re a makeup beginner, or eye shadow isn’t your strong point this palette is for you as it’s easy to work with and let’s be honest, it’s damn cheap for the amount you get! Let me know what you guys think if you already have the palette or are thinking of buying it!
