Revolution New-Trals Vs Neutrals Palette

I have been looking at this palette ever since it came out and I decided to go ahead and buy it. I am really glad I did too, because it's so pretty!

Unfortunately the light this morning was terrible (a recurring theme? I know right!) so I didn't take swatch photos as I didn't think I'd be able to do them justice. But using a bit of help from my photo editor, I think the pics of the shadows didn't actually come out too bad.

I also have some pics for you of my makeup today, as I used this palette this morning, to try it out.

I love the colours in this palette; loads of warm colours, a mixture of mattes and shimmers. It's perfect for Autumn / Winter and it is really unlike any other palette I own!

Also, there is an actual brush in there, a double-ended one at that!! I even used it this morning, it has a flat brush on one end and a pencil brush on the other. No crap sponge applicator (my pet hate) ... weeeee!

The palette is £6.99, which is a bargain for 16 shadows. As with all revolution shadows, they're a bit powdery, but tapping the excess off your brush stops this being a problem. No major fallout and they're really smooth and easy to blend. I used the 2 shimmer shades on the bottom row, 2nd and 3rd from the left; these are not quite so pigmented so I had really load up the flat brush, but when applied they looked great.

It's currently out of stock on Revolution's website, but Superdrug still have some.

Here is the look I came up with.

Giz a kiss!

Well, it is Movember!

Yeah I don't know either!

I'm also wearing Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Noble. You can only get KVD products from Sephora, but they do ship to the UK (quickly and without any import fees!)

On my cheeks I'm also wearing a Revolution blush: I bought these two when I was in Superdrug recently. The bright pink shade is called Hot! and the peachy shade is called Treat. Treat is what I'm wearing today, along with the lightest shade in their Radiant Lights palette to highlight (I think the shade is called Exhale; they're available separately too).

Have an awesome weekend everyone!

Disclaimer: As with all Revolution products, I'm going by what I read on the ingredients list to determine if I think these products are vegan. They, as a company, will not confirm which products are free from animal ingredients. They originally told me that any non-vegan ingredients are obvious ones (such as beeswax, lanolin and carmine), so this is what I go by until they decide to be more co-operative and confirm further!


  1. The Makeup Revolution palette is so pretty. I might need to acquire it. I only have six of their palettes already!


speak to me, yo!
