Hello babs! Today I’m going to be doing a review of the palette that I used in my collaboration the other day… It’s the New Trals vs Neutrals palette from Makeup Revolution and I picked this up from Superdrug for £6.99 but it is also available for the same price on TAM Beauty. I really like how this palette has a variety of both warm and cool tone shades in it so you can get a lot of different looks out of it.
Side note: You get 16 eyeshadows with 1g/0.04oz of product in each pan.
The eyeshadows come in a black rectangular packaging that is matte on the front and shiny on the back. (Just beware that because it is matte it will pick up marks on it easily which aren’t as easy to clean as they would be if they were on a shiny packaging) On the front of the palette it has the name of the brand in rose gold lettering and on the back it has the actual name of the palette in white lettering on a sticker. The palette flips open and has a click shut mechanism. Inside it comes with a good size and good quality mirror and it also has a dual ended eyeshadow brush which is of decent quality. There is a plastic removable sheet over the shades which has their names on it.
MICA, TALC, MAGNESIUM STEARATE, PARAFFINUM LIQUIDUM, ETHYLHEXYL PALMITATE, SILICA, POLYBUTENE, DIMETHICONE, METHYLPARABEN, PROPYLPARABEN, [+/-: CI 77891, CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499, CI 15850, CI 16035, CI 77007]
Before even buying the palette I had heard a lot of people on the internet talking about this palette but in all honesty I don’t think I’d have got this palette if it weren’t for the fact that I had to for a collaboration… although, saying that I am glad I did end up buying it because I have been really enjoying it. This palette does have a makeup scent to it but it is nothing too overpowering and you don’t really notice it unless you put your nose up close to the eyeshadows! When I first opened the palette I liked how there is a good ratio of mattes to shimmers/foil like shades because it shows that you can create a lot of different looks with this palette. There is also a variety of warm and cool tones shades in this as well which is even more of a bonus… although I don’t normally go for cool tone shades I like how there is a good ratio of them to warm tones so that I can experiment some more. There were a few disappointing shadows in this palette in terms of pigmentation but the shadows are creamy and do blend well on the eyes overall. Now, coming onto the brush… I am quite pleasantly surprised actually because not a lot of drugstore brands include brushes in their products so this made it a win for me! On first impressions the bristles felt quite hard and wasn’t the softest to use on the eyes either but it was nothing too uncomfortable for me.
Side note: I have dipped in twice to do my swatches like I always do to get a good opinion on the shadows pigmentation with build 🙂
(Without and with flash)
Bias – This is a champagne shimmer which could be good to use as an inner corner or under the brow bone highlight. Pigmentation 3/5.
Neutral – This is a light brown matte shade which could be good to use as a transition shade in the crease. Pigmentation 3/5.
Personal – This is a peachy pink shimmer which barely shows up (disappointing). Best to apply with a finger or you would have to go in a few times with a wet brush each time. Pigmentation 2/5.
Vogue – This is a coral pink shimmer. Pigmentation 4/5.
Trend – This is a terracotta brown matte shade which is slightly patchy in pigmentation but can be built up. Pigmentation 3/5.
New-tral – This is a peachy pink matte shade. Pigmentation 4/5.
Tone – This is a berry red matte shade. Pigmentation 3/5.
Custom – This is a chocolate-brown matte shade which is very patchy in pigmentation and can be quite hard to build up. Pigmentation 2/5.
Cool – This is an off-white matte shade which could be good to use to set an eyelid primer. Pigmentation 3/5.
Style – This is a pink champagne foil like shade. Pigmentation 4/5.
Partial – This is pink foil like shade. Pigmentation 4/5.
Mode – This is a gold foil like shade. Pigmentation 4/5.
Adapt – This is an ashy mauve matte shade. Pigmentation 3/5.
Buff – This is a brown foil like shade. Pigmentation 4/5.
Suit – This is a grey brown matte shade which is slightly patchy in pigmentation but can be built up. Pigmentation 3/5.
Strong – This is a purply brown matte shade with gold glitters in it. This is quite patchy in pigmentation and can be quite hard to build up. Pigmentation 2/5.
I really do like this palette and although there are some misses in pigmentation, overall the shades work well. I love how it’s warm and cool toned because it means you can get a lot of different looks using this palette. I definitely think it is worth the price with how many shades you get and if you’re into this colour scheme then you should definitely try it out!
Thanks for reading!
