Makeup Revolution always gets us excited when they launch a new palette, especially one which is launched out of nowhere with no prior sneak peeks. The Makeup Revolution 24K Gold Eyeshadow Palette is the most recent Makeup Revolution launch at the time of writing this post, and I thought it would be the perfect post to finish my Makeup Revolution week on. It’s £8.99 from TAM Beauty and isn’t currently available from Superdrug, but I’m sure it’ll be online and instore very soon. When I saw the pictures online of the Makeup Revolution 24K Gold Eyeshadow Palette I assumed it was an original palette such as the Golden Bar Palette, but only when I received my palette did I notice that it was in fact ‘inspired’ by the Anastasia Beverly Hills Master Palette by Mario. The ABH Palette was a limited edition palette and can no longer be bought so it’s amazing that Makeup Revolution have created their own version for less than £9.
“Get gilded with the I Heart 24k Gold palette. This special edition palette is packed with 16 shadows in rich, warm tones. Alongside six matte shades, this palette contains a range of shimmering golds with undertones of peach, yellow and bronze for endless, gleaming looks. Encased in metallic gold chocolate casing with a full-size mirror.“
The Makeup Revolution 24K Gold Eyeshadow Palette has the typical chocolate bar design, but this time with a shiny golden dripping design. I really like the metallic drip designs, Makeup Revolution have been doing recently as they look so striking especially when you own multiple palettes and have them all lined up in a drawer like I do. Just like the rest of the chocolate bar palettes, the 24K Gold Palette contains 16 eyeshadows alongside a full size mirror and double ended sponge tip applicator. The palette does have a subtle chocolate scent, but I do think it’s the most subtle scent they’ve done so far but I personally like the scents for the chocolate bar series.
Bling – a light gold shimmer.
Lustre – a matte cream (strange name for a straight matte shade).
Spirit – a mauvey brown matte.
Spice – a chocolate brown matte.
Gilded – a light warm toned brown matte.
Flare – a warm chocolate brown matte with copper shimmer particles.
Stun – a warm toned orangey gold shimmer.
Real – a rosy toned brown shimmer.
Moonlit – a light peach shimmer.
Glacier – a olive green foil with a golden duochrome shift.
Solitaire – a golden brown foil.
Rock – a copper shimmer.
Stone – a peachy brown matte.
Crown – a warm chocolate brown matte.
Satellite – a super intense matte black.
Gem – a champagne shimmer.
I am yet again blown away by the quality of the shadows within this palette, and I can’t believe the palette is only £8.99. The shadow selection is just beautiful with a lovely mix of tones, mattes, shimmers and foils. I do wish there were perhaps a couple more lighter matte shades within the palette, but apart from that I have zero complaints. In the Makeup Revolution Chocolate Orange Palette I featured earlier this week, there was one slightly disappointing shade but there are no disappointing shades within this Makeup Revolution 24K Gold Eyeshadow Palette. I never bought the Master Palette by Mario as I was too slow off the mark, and have regretted it ever since but I no longer need to as I have this beauty of a palette in my life and I love it so much.
My standout shades have to be the stunning Glacier which is one of the prettiest green eyeshadows I’ve ever used and Satellite which is without a doubt the most intense black eyeshadow I’ve used from any makeup brand – it’s insanely pigmented and this swatch is from circling the pan just once. I really do stand by my opinion that Makeup Revolution have improved their eyeshadow formula within the last six months or so, as every palette I’ve tried since the launch of their Chocolate Rose Gold Palette has been fantastic and the 24K Gold Palette is no different and a palette I’d wholeheartedly recommend.
I’d love to know your thoughts on the Makeup Revolution 24K Gold Eyeshadow Palette? Has it made your wishlist?
