I have an exclusive reveal of the newest Makeup Revolution palette; the Makeup Revolution I ♡ Makeup Naked Underneath Eyeshadow Palette which will launch imminently if not already on the Makeup Revolution website, and will cost £7.99*. Makeup Revolution’s ability to release amazing new products so frequently is just incredible, and I can’t help but lust after every single new release…
What makes this palette so different to the other eyeshadow palettes, is that the top of the outer black plastic casing has been lined with black fur. In the middle of the black fur, there is a clear crystal-cut heart similar to those on the I Heart Sin and I Heart Passion Palettes.
What I will say from the start is that the fur on the Naked Underneath Eyeshadow Palette does have quite a few loose fibres within it, so I’d really recommend running your fingers through it over a bin just to remove the loose fibres so they don’t fall in the shadows; especially if you have contact lenses as you could suffer with a little minor irritation.
The I ♡ Makeup Naked Underneath Eyeshadow Palette contains sixteen powder shadows, in a range of neutral shades like its name suggests. What made this palette stand out in particular, is that its inclusion of interesting shades that you wouldn’t typically find within a neutral eyeshadow palette and I couldn’t wait to swatch them all to see what they were like.
The palette contains a sizeable mirror within the lid, and a double-ended sponge tip applicator which a lot of people slate but as a blogger, I love them as they’re perfect for swatching shadows.
Makeup Revolution I ♡ Makeup Naked Underneath Eyeshadow Palette
Free: a matte pale pink-toned cream shade which is identical to my skintone which is why you can’t see it very clearly. It’s very creamy, and buttery soft and would be ideal for evening out the eyelid before applying the other shadows or as a browbone highlight.
Stroke: is such a unique shade.. it’s a really pretty almost dovetail grey with a lilac undertone and shimmer. It’s a little sheer alone, but with a primer, the shimmer really intensifies.
Reveal: a taupey gold shimmer with amazing pigmentation and possibly my favourite from the palette. In some lights, it looks like it has a pink tone to it too.
Meow: such a wow shade.. a deep plum matte containing copper glitter particles. Normally shades like this need to be applied with a wet brush for the glitter to be noticeable – but not with this shade. There is understandably a little fallout, but the effect is so worth it.
Darkness: a super intense, deep matte black.
Love: a bright copper with a shimmery finish. This shade isn’t as intensely pigmented as the other shimmers in the palette but I actually like that as it looks like a completely different shade when worn either sheerly or intense. It reminds me of a brand new penny.
Hidden: a deep, dark brown matte which is a great alternative for deepening your eyeshadow on the days you don’t want to use an harsh black.
2004: a slightly warm-toned champagne shimmer that’d make for a great all over the lid shade.
Glory: is a rich, reddy toned bronze which may look a little similar to Love but I assure you they’re very different in person, with Glory being a lot deeper and is definitely one of my top five shades in the palette as it’s beyond beautiful.
1970: this is a dark silver with a slightly green tone to is, which is so unique for a neutral palette. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a shadow quite like it before, and it’s immensely pigmented and buttery.
After Hours: is a black which is packed with lots of silver shimmer to give almost a deep steel grey colour. Again the pigmentation is out of this world, with a little going a long, long way.
Attention: is a little disappointing sadly, as it’s not very pigmented but it would work on the days if you wanted a very subtle crease shade perhaps on a ‘no makeup’ makeup day as it does blend well, it’s just very faint.
Seeking: is a warm terracotta which is better in terms of pigmentation compared to Attention, but it’s not the best in the palette. However like Attention, it’d work perfectly as a crease/transition shade if you’re wanting something more warm-toned than Attention.
: is a milk chocolate matte brown
which I really like as it’s warm-toned, and would work amazingly with practically every other shadow in the palette. This matte has a silky texture, so it blends very nicely.
Missile: a pink/red toned bronze which is really pretty and I love it. I applied it all over the lid, and because of the multi-dimensional shimmers within it, it looked as if I had applied other shadows with it. I really like that this looks like a slightly worn penny, and Love is like a new penny.
Wonderous: is beautiful. It’s a pale, cool-toned champagne which is incredibly smooth and buttery so it would be stunning as a face highlighter as well as an eyeshadow. It reminds me a little of theBalm’s Mary-Lou Manizer in terms of pigmentation, texture and shade. I’m so glad that this shade is one of the two larger shadows in the palette.
I love, love loveeee this Naked Underneath Eyeshadow Palette. I love that the shadows as a whole are more warm toned compared to my absolutely gorgeous Makeup Revolution Naked Chocolate Palette (which as you already know, I’m obsessed with).
Yes there are two slightly disappointing shadows, but they’re both usable and I think two out of sixteen is pretty fantastic in all honesty. I can’t believe that Makeup Revolution have created this Naked Underneath Eyeshadow Palette with such incredible quality for only £7.99.. It’s mind blowing.
