We may be done with Durga Puja but the festivities are far from over and I am already hyped up for Diwali! If you are a regular reader, you may have seen the colorful eye looks that I created for the last three days of Navratri, and I am glad to report that I have finally found the palette that will take care of all the festive looks I will be creating in the near future! For all my recent looks, I have been using the Makeup Revolution Colour Chaos Palette, and I have finally tested it enough to write a detailed review, so here we go.
This palette comes in the standard Makeup Revolution palette but the outer cardboard box is a wonderful riot of colors, as are the actual eye shadows. The palette has 18 bright and beautiful shades that range from acid yellows and greens to electric blues and pinks. They have also included a number of deeper shades such as plum, purple, brown and a deep green, which can work as excellent crease shades. Therefore, you can create a full eye look with this palette, which is usually not the case with most colorful palettes. The only thing that I miss in terms of a color is a nice matte or even shimmery black but the rest of the shade spectrum is pretty much covered.
The palette comes with a thin transparent sheet that has the name of all the colors on it, which is going to make my job of reviewing them much easier. As you can see, there are a few matte shades and a few shimmery ones. All the matte shades are top notch in the pigmentation department but can be a little chalky and powdery, however, if you tap your brush before using them, you will be good. The shimmer shades, on the other hand, are slightly less pigmented and less blendable, and I feel that using these with a finger is the best way to work with them. The shades that come in the circular shape are the most powdery and not as pigmented as the rectangular matte shades, but with the right amount of product and blending, you can work with them too. Overall, I would say that the pigmentation is very decent for the price and I am super impressed with most of the colors. My favorite shades are Wkd, Tom Tom, Pink Obsessed, Over-bored, Needed To, and Me Three. Also, I am extremely thankful for the mirror in the palette and the double-ended sponge applicator is actually quite useful for applying some color to the lower lashline and for adding a highlight shade in the inner corner.
Here are the arm swatches of all the shades, and if you want to see these colors in action then you can check out my last three posts for eye swatches. For a price of INR 1350, I feel that this palette is really very good, and because it has all the bright shades I could ever think of using in my life, I don’t think I will ever need another colorful eyeshadow palette. Some of the shades can be a little hard to blend for a newbie, but if you are decent at blending your shadows then you will love this palette. I would recommend all those who sport colorful eye looks only on rare occasions, and therefore don’t want to give an arm and a leg for bright eyeshadows, to buy this palette to have them covered. This is 1350 bucks well spent indeed!
