Makeup Revolution Ultra 32 Eyeshadow Palette in Flawless Review + Swatches


A lot of you makeup lovers have probably heard about Makeup Revolution, as it's pretty much all over the blogosphere!

When i saw the Flawless palette, i was just in awe! All the colours are a mixture of neutrals, which are my kinda shades! There are 32 eyeshadows in the palette, with a combination of mattes, shimmers and glitters.


This entire palette has pretty much all the colours you would want for a day time look, or a glamorous evening look. 

The eyeshadows come in a very sturdy casing, with a huge mirror. I was actually pretty surprised at how durable the packaging was, when compared with other drugstore pallets. This palette is perfect for travelling, as it houses all the shades you could possibly want!



I had good use of this palette over the weekend and wanted to share my thoughts......

There are a fantastic range of mattes in this palette, and it's normally pretty hard to find decent matte eyeshadows in drugstore palettes. Smudge was a great transitional colour on my lids, and you may see from the swatches below that a few matte shades didn't really show up on my hand, but showed on the lids.

The shade that probably had quite a bit of fallout was noir, which was the matte black. I sort of expected it, because a lot of matte black eyeshadows tend to have fallout anyway.

The shimmer shades are extremely soft and almost buttery when swatching, however a couple of colours looked a bit different when applied to the lids. I did apply all the eyeshadows over the Urban Decay Primer Potion. I'm curious to know how these eyeshadows would look if applied with a damp brush.....


I wanted to create a super dramatic look to see how good the eyeshadows really were! I have filmed a tutorial on this look, so keep an eye out for this on my channel!

The shades i used were Molton Chocolate, Noir, Pure Chocolate, Smudge and Medal. I was keen to see how well the eyeshadows blended, and i noticed that when i applied Medal using my fingers, it came out much more vibrant than applying with my MAC 239! 

All the eyeshadows blended really well, and i was very pleased with how Smudge and Pure Chocolate blended out! 


What are my overall thoughts? I have to say for £8 you can't go wrong, and it works out about 25p per eyeshadow! 

The quality of the eyeshadows are pretty good, and yes, there are a couple which are chalky and have some fallout, but the majority of the eyeshadows work really well together. A few of the shades aren't as pigmented as some of the others in the palette, however if applied damp, then the vibrancy should increase (hoping!). 

There is a great combination of shades and it's a very versatile palette, making it suitable for everyone. I would highly recommend it to people who are new to makeup, or for those who don't want to spend £££ on higher end eyeshadows.

I am eager to see and test out a few other products from their range!
