I can't help but blog about Makeup Revolution, I am obsessed with the brand and get so excited by their new releases! Lets talk about the new I <3 Make up Black Velvet Palette*. This palette is a neutral and nude lovers dream with 13 beautiful matte shades and 3 stunning shimmer shade all inspired by black velvet.
I have to talk about the packaging of this palette, it would be rude not to! The front of the palette is black velvet which feels gorgeous, although I think its going to end up getting a bit dirty in my make up bag, complete with a beautiful black jewel in the middle to finish it off. On the inside of the palette is the 16 eye shadows, a clear insert with all of the shade names on, a double ended applicator and a full size mirror - not bad for £7.99! All of the eye shadows are buttery soft too which I love as it makes them easier to work with.
All of the shades have pretty good pigmentation but a couple of the lighter matte shades will need a bit of building up when they are applied to the lid to get that full intensity which I don't find to be a problem as it doesn't take long. This palette has some beautiful darker shades which makes it different than any palette I have in my collection really as most of my palette are pretty light so this is going to be perfect for darker looks! My favourite shade in the palette is that stunning purple, third from the right on the bottom row in the swatches, which is called Wild. It is like nothing I own and I cannot wait to play around with it even more and create some pretty looks with it. The third and fourth shades on the top row (in the swatches) called Long and Feel I have been using so much! They are great shades for everyday when I am in a rush to get out of the door for work and look really beautiful on the eye.
I love this palette and I can't wait to play around with it a bit more and create some more looks with it. This Black Velvet palette retails for the bargain price of £7.99, when you think that you have 16 eyeshadows, each shadow works at just under 50p (if I have done the maths right) which is such a good deal!
Have you tried this palette? What did you think?
