Make-up Revolution Romantic Smoked Palette – Review & Swatches. 

I have had the Romantic Smoked palette from Make-up Revolution £4for far too long, Its only now six months on that I’m putting It through it’s paces. I added it to my stash of eyeshadow palettes and promptly forgot all about it. A clear sign I have to much make-up. Anyway I’ve found it again now so have been having a bit of a play.  

The palette consists of 6 shimmer and 6 matte shades that fall into the cool toned mauve family.  As expected from most budget palettes the shimmer shades swatch easier than the mattes. Having said that Make-up revolution have made a good attempt at producing some good quality workable mattes. 

I particularly am a fan of the two muted matte mauve shades, 1st and 3rd from left in the photograph below (sorry no names). These are great if you are looking subtle twist on a nude daytime look.  

As the packaging is pretty solid I wouldn’t be afraid to carry this palette around in my bag. I think it would be a great one to have on hand if you were heading out for post work drinks. With this you can easily take your eye make-up from office to bar. 

 Priced at £4 this is a great palette to have in your collection, it contains some pretty unique shades that are very easy to work with. I can’t say that wear time is fantastic, as you are going to want to touch your make-up up after a few hours wear, and that is with using a lid primer.  As this palette is so inexpensive I personally can live with that, if I’d paid a lot more money for it I wouldn’t be so happy. You get what you pay for though right? 

A daytime nude alternative

 This is one palette I will be reaching for time and again, now I’ve remembered I have it. Yes Awks! The shades are so unique to anything else I own especially those two mattes I singled out earlier. 

Can you see a place in your collection for some cool toned mauves? Or are you more of a warm toned girl?
