Makeup revolution 144 shade ultimate palette

We all love an eyeshadow palette don't we? The fact you can create infinite looks from carrying around just one thing is amazing. So when I was in Superdrug the other day doing what I do best, browsing the makeup counters, I saw this beauty and for only £7.99!!
At first glance it was the extensive range of colours that drew me in, there were pinks, golds, burgundy's, purples, browns, yellows, blues and even a few brighter colours like green thrown in there too for the more daring. Then of course I looked at the price and I was drawn in to this palette even more, £7.99 for 144 shades of beautifulness, I think so! Naturally I could not turn my head away from such a brilliant deal so it went straight in my basket as I dreamt of the looks I could create from this beauty.

When I first opened this palette at home I of course swatched some of the shadows to see the quality and I was expecting good things since the palette was by Makeup  Revolution and I have quite a few of their other smaller palettes that are some of the most pigmented things I've ever used. I found that the lighter shades in the first two or three rows of the palette weren't very pigmented and I had to rub my finger in them quite a lot to get a good amount of pigment, however all the rows from there especially the ones with the golds and beautiful burgundy reds lived up to the expectations I had of them and were extremely pigmented.
How they blend out and apply on the eye though is a whole other ball game so when I used this palette for my eyeshadow the next day I made sure to use a range of the shades to get a good feel for them and their bending abilities. Once again I was very impressed with the lighter shades still not being the most pigmented but most of the others working wonders. There were a few random shades dotted around the palette that I found to be less pigmented than the others but I think that's due to how many shades there are, so naturally a few might be a little dud. I also found they blended well and overall I was very impressed.
The only down side to this palette is the size, it is pretty big but I guess it has to be to hold so many eyeshadows. It also has a very plastic feel to it and isn't very sturdy as though if you dropped it on to a hard floor it would crack in to a million pieces. I do like the fact thought that they've put a mirror on the inside of the lid, it isn't very big or great quality but its useful never the less!

I will link the palette here if you're interested in getting this yourself (you totally should) and of course, thanks for reading.

  7. I cant believe you get such a wide array of colours and the colour pay off is brilliant! Normally with larger palettes you get some dodgy shades, like you mentioned, but just look at those swatches! It's brilliant if youre a make-up artist!
