Hey there lovelies. Makeup Revolution are a brand I am just sure you'll of heard of. Newish to the budget makeup world, now known more for making spot-on dupes of the three Naked palettes from UD (colour-wise, anyway) called the Iconic palettes. But I can't lie, I didn't seem as excited to try Makeup Revolution as some people. Not sure why, but maybe as I am never overwhelmed by 'budget' makeup. Makeup snob? Yep.

So what am I doing with this palette? A gift bag goodie from the Bluewater meet up I went to a few weeks ago, and I can honestly say I was intrigued to try out the Essential Shimmer Eyeshadow Palette.  On first glance, it's a very standard looking palette. The packaging is made from a black plastic and has a clear window on the top. All very typical of low-cost palettes, and of course a bit cheap looking. But then I am grateful this is black and not bright plastic, least Makeup Revolution have made an effort to avoid the cheap look.

Anyway, there are ten shimmery shades in this palette and two matte shades. All the shades are much more buttery than I expected, and no fall out issues, even with all that shimmer. Blending wise, no problems either but they do lose their pigmentation a tad once applied, yet I must say they did last a good 6/8 hours with no creasing, my absolute pet eyeshadow hate.

For £4 I do think this a pretty good palette, but I can't say I am blown away with it yet. To be fair I am a UD Naked girl through and through so it did have tough competition, and any eye shadow will have a hard job trying to convince me to wear shimmer. And I just don't know if I am intrigued enough to try the matte palette they do...
