Another Makeup Revolution product, seems I can't keep away. After the not so impressive Shimmer Palette, their 'What You Waiting For' palette put Makeup Revolution on my makeup radar, if you couldn't tell. One of their best known items is the Essential Mattes Palettes, which I couldn't wait to try. I am a lover of anything matte, and this was one of the reason I kind of turned my nose up at the shimmer palette...my mistake.
The Makeup Revolution Essential Mattes Palette consists mainly nudes (duh), ranging from the lightest beige to a dark chocolate brown, with peachy shades and beiges thrown in the mix. The three plum shades, a medium brownish colour with a strong purple undertone, a greyish light lavender and a soft, cool lilac, are right up my street.
The pale yellow is one shade I am unsure about, as well its yellow. I’m sure I’ll find a way to make it work for me at some point, but I've not yet, so any suggestions are greatly welcomed... One more shade I can not warm up to is the steel blue, which doesn't seem flatter my green eyes.
Those two poor shades aside, I have been using this palette daily and with the pigmentation being surprisingly strong the colours last all day too. I have even received a few compliments from my mother (we all know they can be rare) that my eye makeup actually looks nice, and what colours was I using? Well if that isn't the ultimate seal of approval for the Essential Mattes Palette then I don't know what is.
Makeup Revolution Essential Mattes Palette £4 - Like I need to mention how good price this is?
