Makeup Revolution Eyeshadows Review + GIVEAWAY

I bought the Makeup Revolution Matte Beyond Flawless Ultra Eyeshadow palette when Makeup Revolution was popping up across the country and the hype was only just beginning to simmer. That was quite a while ago as you can imagine! I found this palette when I was re-organising my make-up, and I thought, what with the hype over MUR now, why don't I pitch in? 

As much as I appreciate that the drugstore does have some very good, affordable products to offer, when it comes to eyeshadow I do generally stray towards high end brands. I'm really glad I rediscovered this Makeup Revolution palette though, to say I'm impressed would be an understatement!

The palette comes with a whopping 32 shades, which is so many for just £8! The shades are mostly neutral and cool tones, but vary through browns, pinks, taupes and blues. There's a shade in this palette that everybody has to fall in love with! It's definitely now my go-to palette for every day, because it has so much variety there's a perfect shade for everything: transition, lid, crease, outer corner.  EVERYTHING! My only wish is that there would be more product.
The shadows are incredibly pigmented. I'd say the matte shades are easily comparable to the Urban Decay alternatives. You get a really decent amount of colour payoff with surprisingly little fallout. I love that they're all matte, to be honest. As lovely as shimmers are, an all-matte palette is perfect for everyday. Mattes are just so wearable! I swatched some of my favourite shades for you to see:
I've noticed that they're super long wearing too, which for me, when it comes to my experience with drugstore products, is definitely a pleasant surprise. They don't just stay on all day, the pigment stays vibrant all day. How great is that?! I was also really impressed with how well the shades blend out. I was playing with another drugstore palette (naming no names) and I had to blend the shadows so much that my eyelid literally hurt. These are really soft and easy to blend though, they gradate so beautifully. Here's a picture of a quick, everyday eye look I wore that was done with this palette:
I was so impressed with this palette that I wanted to give one away to my readers! While I went to buy it for you, I thought I'd pick up a few more Makeup Revolution products for you as well! You can win:
  • Matte Beyond Flawless Ultra Eyeshadows (reviewed!) 
  • Ultra Black Liquid Eyeliner
  • Amazing Curve Mascara
  • 3xLipsticks "Reckless" "Dare" & "The One" 
  • Vivid Baked Highlighter Peach Lights
For obvious hygiene reasons I haven't got the lipsticks out to swatch them, but I got a nude, a deep red and a true red- so hopefully at least one the winner will like. 
This giveaway will run until April 14th, sadly its UK only! Just enter using Rafflecopter below:
