Makeup Revolution Soph X Palettes Review
So I may be a little later than most to jump on this wagon, but in my defense they were out of stock so darn often! And I can see why. The Makeup Revolution Soph X collaboration produced 2 palettes – an Eyeshadow Palette and a Highlighter Palette, and they – are – epic!
Makeup Revolution Soph X Eyeshadow Palette
“The 24 versatile shades give you everything you need to create your look no matter what time of year, whether you’re looking for light shimmers, warm browns, rich golds, rusty oranges, dark smokey shades or even a pop of colour – this palette is for you! – Soph x”
My gosh the girl did good! The selection of shades in this palette are amazing and right up my street! There are 14 matte shades and 10 shimmers, perfect for literally any eye look you can think of! The infamous “Cuppa Tea” is literally just life. It is the most flattering shade that will suit any skin tone, and sits perfectly with all the other shades in this palette. As a lover of olive toned shadows, “Pine Tree” & “Petrol” are also among my top favourites in this palette. And while there are some shades that I wouldn’t usually go for, they sit next to such complementing shades in the palette that it is so inspiring just to look at!
Makeup Revolution Soph X Highlighter Palette
“With 8 different shades, you can pick your favorites or mix and match colours to create the perfect glow for your skin tone. You know what they say… you can NEVER have enough higligter! – Soph x”
While I don’t 100% agree with Soph’s statement (I do think that there is a line when enough highlighter is enough – or at least there should be in some cases!) I do completely adore her highlighting palette! The various shades she has put into this palette are so dreamy! There are such different tones to these highlighters, and there are 5 baked and 3 pressed depending on the desired finish. Being a fan of all things bronze my favourites have to be those on the right hand side (there are no shade names) and even though I think these were designed with darker skin tones in mind (as I have mentioned before I am on the paler side..) I absolutely love the subtle bronze and gold sheen that these highlighters give. Those along with the brighter highlighters makes this palette an absolute go to!
So overall, these palettes are basically just awesome. The shades are so beautifully selected, and as with all Makeup Revolution palettes the pigmentation is amazing. The packaging is absolutely stunning, and I love the nude and gold theme that Soph has used. Price wise again for Makeup Revolution these palettes are super affordable, with the Eyeshadow Palette priced at £10.00 and the Highlighter Palette priced at £8.00. The Makeup Revolution Soph X Collaboration is pure genius, and even with all the hype that already surrounded these palettes I am still very impressed – and very obsessed!
