The bloggersphere has gone crazy for Makeup Revolution and their budget friendly products.. especially their extensive range of eyeshadow palettes, however there seems to be very little ‘buzz’ about their huge range of Makeup Revolution Mono Eyeshadows. There are an amazing 45 different shades of the Mono Eyeshadows, and they only cost £1 each are available in neutral, bright, neon, shimmer, glitter and matte shades.
I’m not typically a fan of single powder eyeshadows, as I much prefer a palette as they’re so much more convenient when you want to use multiple shades to create an eyeshadow look. Single eyeshadows tend to have quite bulky packaging, but I love that these Makeup Revolution Mono Eyeshadows have super slim, lightweight packaging which I really like as they take up very little room.
Makeup Revolution Mono Eyeshadows Review / Swatches
Good Life is the least pigmented shade from the four (but is not poorly pigmented by any means), and does work better when layered over an eyeshadow primer whereas the other three shades don’t need a primer underneath. Good Life is such a pretty taupe that looks very similar to MAC’s Satin Taupe in the pan, but on the eyelids, it looks a little more brown with silver shimmer.
Illuminate is a champagne cream with amazing pigmentation, and a buttery texture. You could use Illuminate with a fan brush as an highlighter as it’s a nice pale shade. I really like wearing this shade all over my lid as a base shade before using any of the other three shades for definition.
Make It Happen* is a dark taupe with silver shimmer particles and is my favourite shade from the four, and again as a lovely, smooth and creamy texture.
Cappuccino* is a warm toned golden bronze on the lids even though it’s almost a brown shade in the pan, but I actually prefer the shade it translates to. Cappuccino has a buttery consistency which applies, and blends beautifully.
