I Heart Revolution Surprise!
I Heart Revolution Surprise Eggs are quite possibly the cutest makeup product I have ever seen! I know they are probably aimed at Easter, but these little pods of beauty are so unique they deserve credit all year round! I purchased Surprise Rose Gold, Surprise Gold and Surprise Dragon (although now I have tried them I regret not buying the whole collection – but there’s still time!).
I Heart Revolution Surprise Rose Gold
“A rose gold surprise, comprised of five mini egg eyeshadow shades. Pick and mix between four shimmer shades, pale pink, rose pink, dark rose gold and dark rose brown, plus a matte rose brown. Create a radiant glow with the light and medium rose gold highlighter duo.”
This miraculous egg is packed with stunning rose gold eyeshadow shades, with a matte warm chocolate to blend out the beautiful shimmers. The dark rose brown shimmer is a tone that is rare and beautiful, it is a stunning crossover between bronze and rose gold and looks incredible. The other three shimmer shades are equally as amazing, and bringing all of these shades together is a match made in heaven! There is also a beautiful soft beige highlighter and a bright glowing champagne to compliment. Just looking at the shades together in the “egg” brings up so much excitement for those glowing rose gold makeup looks. Absolutely gorgeous!
I Heart Revolution Surprise Gold
“A golden surprise, comprised of five mini egg eyeshadow shades. Pick and mix between three matte brown shadows, one light, medium and dark, plus two stunning shimmer browns. Get a golden glow with the two highlighters included, a yellow gold and soft bronze gold.”
The leading role in this particular egg goes to the blinding yellow gold highlighter. It is beyond a winner! Such a rich tone of gold, it gives a radiant sunkissed golden highlight without leaving a yellow cast underneath. It’s genius! This is paired with a stunning – actually almost rose gold – highlighter with a bronze subtle sheen. The eyeshadows in this keep to a more neutral colour palette, with three matte shades to build up a stunning soft brown look. The shimmers are quite different from eachother, but blend together beautifully to give a smooth gradient effect. The darker of the two is more of an olive toned brown, while the lighter keeps that rose glow to pair perfectly with the highlighter.
I Heart Revolution Dragon
“A surprise fit for a dragon, comprised of five mini egg eyeshadow shades. Pick and mix between three shimmer shadows, a fiery red, a gorgeous gold and a beautiful bronze, plus two matte brown shades. Including two warm and cool highlighters.”
This egg is simply gorgeous – and probably my favourite if I had to choose one. The rich eyeshadows include beautiful red tones in both a matte finish and a gorgeous burnt toned shimmer. The other copper and gold shimmers show this off beautifully, and the soft matte brown blends these out like a dream. Surprisingly, the highlighters are more neutral toned, both a simple champagne with one warmer tone and one cooler tone. With the bold eyeshadows, these subtle highlighters make this collection all about showing off those beautiful burnt fiery shades.
I am sure it is now obvious that the packaging for these palettes is in the form of eggs. However, said “eggs” are so shiny and mesmerizing I love having these out on show – all the time! Luckily the 3 I chose fit together perfectly and I am actually able to make a display out of them!
Their size makes them perfect for travelling, and although they are plastic they are super strong and sturdy. The colour pay off is incredible, so pigmented and easy to blend. The highlighters are not over the top allowing you to build them up to the intensity you are looking for, and they sit well on top of foundation – although I would suggest using a powder before applying to make the blending process even more seamless. But! These eyeshadows really are just something else. The colour collections are perfect and every single shade is wearable for so many different eye looks. You literally only need the egg!
Another fantastic bonus to these is that they are priced at £5.00. That’s actually cheaper than buying an Easter egg – and I know what I would prefer!!
