I have been seriously overwhelmed by all of the new Makeup Revolution, so much so I’ve given up trying to keep up with them seeing as there’s now new products multiple times a week. This year has definitely been the year for Revolution collaborations which I guess is because the Soph Palettes were such a massive success. There have been a crazy amount of collaboration palettes and I personally have only bought the Soph Extra Spice Palette £10, the Emily Wants Palette £15 and the Makeup Revolution By Petra Eyeshadow Palette £12 as I didn’t really like the look of the other palettes as there was a lot of crossover shadows. I might still purchase the Kisu Palette and it looks so pretty but the others just don’t excite me.
I ordered the Makeup Revolution By Petra Eyeshadow Palette within five minutes of watching Petra’s reveal video as the swatches looked so pretty, and I loved that the palette contained 36 eyeshadows with no unnecessary space. I value palettes that contain a mirror but I have a lot of Revolution palettes, and thus a lot mirrors so I was up for a palette which didn’t contain a mirror and instead utilised the space very well.
The palette is extremely sleek with a rubberised texture on the lid, with rose gold writing of Petra’s signature. Petra is a YouTuber from the Czech Republic, and her channel is; Petralovelyhair and she has over 245,000 subscribers. I hadn’t ever come across Petra before, but I really like that Revolution are giving international influencers (god that word makes me cringe) a platform to create their own palette, and be seen on a global scene.
“Revolution and beauty blogger Petra Vancurová have come together to create a double act worth seeing. A unique eyeshadow palette occupied with a mind-blowing 36 eyeshadow shades, from everyday warm and cool neutrals to pops of colour including yellow, red, orange and pink.
Whether you’re looking to broaden your makeup skills or you’re a master of the trade, this two-sided palette is for everyone and anyone.
@Petralovelyhair said: “My palette is elegant, bold and playful. I was primarily inspired by everyday life and years of blogging. I wanted an affordable palette for every makeup lover. One that everyone can use for any occasion, you can create an everyday look, a very soft no makeup, makeup look, or a bold or smokey eye look. I covered every possible eyeshadow look you could ever want.”

So they are all of the swatches from the 32 shades within the Makeup Revolution By Petra Eyeshadow Palette. Petra has designed the palette so there’s a warm toned side, and a cooler toned size but I do wish there were more cooler toned shades as there’s no taupes but I appreciate that there are some cooler toned shades as I’m so bored of just warm toned palettes.
The palette contains a good mix of mattes, satins and shimmers but the quality does vary across the palette. I’ve found that the shades within the warm toned side are much better quality than those in the cool side, and I feel like my swatches reflect that pretty well too. I’m really disappointed with the first row within the cool side, except All Black Everything as they’re so muted and lacking in terms of pigment.
My favourite shades within the Makeup Revolution By Petra Eyeshadow Palette would have to be Queen B as it’s the perfect duochrome shade which reminds me of MAC Blue Brown Pigment, Coffee First, Snobby and Hashtag.
I think Petra has don a really great job at choosing shades which work together, and the placement of the pans totally makes sense. I don’t think the quality is on par with the likes of the Chocolate Palettes, or the Soph Palette but it’s a very pretty all the same and 36 shades for £12 is very good value.
I’d love to know your thoughts of the Makeup Revolution By Petra Eyeshadow Palette?
